ASUS’s P8P67 line of motherboards is huge, as of writing this review there are currently 10 P8P67 motherboards in the lineup. Today we are going to be checking out the ASUS P8P67 WS Revolution board. The “WS” implies that it is a workstation board but the “Revolution” means this board is not just made for standard workstation use, but in-home use and gaming applications. Because this is a workstation board you get all of the features that you would expect on a workstation board like SATA 6GB/s connectivity, platinum level 92% power efficiency, dual Intel Gigabit LAN, Digi+ VRM digital power design, EFI BIOS and USB 3.0 connectivity. Gamers don’t worry ASUS has you covered with 3-way SLI and quad-CrossFireX capabilities and unlike most boards the PCI-E slots are nicely spaced for those setups. Read on to see what this board is all about.
Intel’s Sandy Bridge launch was a huge success and a great way to start 2011. Within a few weeks though a chipset error was found on every single P67 motherboard. The error could have degraded SATA 3Gbps performance over time, putting you at risk of data loss and even total drive failures. Users may have never experienced this issue but it needed to be fixed. Intel was quick to rectify this situation with B3 stepping silicon. All new P67 motherboards with the new fix will be called “B3”. Today we will be taking a look at a new gaming / enthusiast motherboard from MSI with this B3 fix. The motherboard is the P67A-GD80 (B3) and features a 12-Phase DrMOS Digital VRM, MSI’s Military Class II components, the new ClickBIOS and 10 USB 3.0 ports.

Let’s take a look…
Finally Intel’s Sandy Bridge is here! I’m sure you have heard about it a lot in the past few months. This new CPU architecture is still built on the 32nm process and is still branded Core i3, i5 and i7 so what really is new? These new processors are supposed to be more efficient, have the best integrated graphics ever from Intel and they are to be priced quite competitively. This of course is not an Intel Sandy Bridge review, this is a CyberPower system review! They have really built an awesome Sandy Bridge system for us and we can’t wait to check it out! Read on to see what Sandy Bridge really can do and how awesome this system is!
