ASUS P8P67 Deluxe (Intel P67 Express) Motherboard Review - BIOS

After taking a look at the Workstation side of the ASUS P67 family, we thought we would hit the upper end of the mainstream with the P8P67 Deluxe.

BIOS

 

The P8P67 uses the same EFI (Extensible Firmware Interface) that the WS Revolution uses. We also see the same style of layout and functionality. When you first enter it you are looking at the EZ Mode.

The EZ Mode is just that. It is a UI that is simple to navigate and adjust. This is for the novice that knows they want to change something, but does not want to have to search for all the settings deep inside the BIOS. You can also set the EPU level right from the BIOS now. This is a great option for anyone that does not want to use Windows as their operating system. Don't worry, though; you can get out of this mode and into something more familiar with a couple of clicks of the mouse.

The Ai Tweaker page is what you are used to from ASUS just you can now use the mouse to navigate around. You do get the PLL Overvoltage control like in the WS (again, more enthusiast features trickling down). plus the same level of adjustment that you can find in most ASUS boards. These should get you well on your way to some decent clockspeeds.

Here we see even more evidence of the ROG line features coming down to the consumer. There's the DIGI+ VRM functions such as VRM frequency and the advanced options for Load-line calibration.

The Advanced tab is pretty much everything else from Integrated Peripherals to Advanced CPU features.

Under the Monitor tab you will find the same type of control that used to be in the Hardware Monitor or sometimes the Power Management page in a more traditional BIOS. It is functional and is where you can find the Q-Fan controls. These have been upgraded with additional profiles. The Chassis fans can also be setup with a manual profile now.

The Boot menu is what you would expect. Not much to talk about here.

Same thing for the Tools page with the exception of the ability to look at the programmed SPD information for your RAM.
