Introduction

The P67 chipset continues to be very present on the market; it shows by the fact that we looked at the Maximus IV Extreme from ASUS just the other week, and if you head on over to Newegg, there's a load of P67 based motherboards not only listed, but also in stock.

 

Today we're looking at another P67 based board and this one comes from ASRock. The particular board we're looking at today falls into the new Fatal1ty series from ASRock which has so far seen the Fatal1ty P67 Professional. Today we're looking at the Fatal1ty P67 Performance, a board that comes in cheaper than the original Professional version.

 

While I didn't review the original Fatal1ty P67 Professional, I have had the pleasure of using it as it was the board in our TweakTown Commander PC Benchmarked article we did in April. It was a board that not only looked great, but offered some great performance. Today we'll see if the cheaper "Performance" model can stand out.

 

Before we get into the Performance of the Performance, though, first we'll check out the package ASRock is offering us. From there we'll take a closer look at the board before getting into the BIOS. Once that's done we'll check out the testbed, the kind of overclock we achieved and then get into the performance side of things.

 

 

The Package

The front of the box highlights the fact that the board is part of the Fatal1ty series. The back of the box shows us a picture of the board and gives us a run down on some of the major features that are on offer.

As for the contents of the box, we've got some paperwork, our I/O shield and four SATA cables. Along with this we've got an IDE and Floppy cable; not something we've seen recently. With that said, it's a nice inclusion if they're something you're using because they will match the color scheme going on. Along with all this, we've got a 3.5mm audio jack which is used to play audio through the PC when off. It's a feature we've seen on other ASRock boards, so shouldn't come as too much of a surprise for you.
