As you can no doubt tell, PC Perspective got a HUGE and much needed facelift recently to what we are internally calling "PC Perspective v4.0".  I know there are still some kinks to work out and we are actively addressing any feedback from our readers in this comment thread.  

But we want to celebrate the launch of the new site in style!!  Some of our site sponsors have very generously offered up some prizes for us to give out throughout the coming days...

The sixth prize is truly a killer motherboard, the ASUS Maximus IV Extreme P67 B3!

View Full Size

This motherboard from ASUS has just about anything an enthusiast could ask for including:

  • ROG Connect: Plug and Overclock - Tweak it the hardcore way!
  • ROG iDirect : Tune your PC from your iPhone or iPad now!
  • RC Bluetooth: Smashes through all the barriers of conventional overclocking!
  • Extreme Engine Digi+: Smashes through all the barriers of conventional overclocking!
  • USB BIOS Flashback: Refresh the BIOS can never be that easy

How can you win this wonderful piece of engineering that currently sells for more than $360???

Couldn't be easier: post a comment in this post thanking ASUS for its sponsorship of PC Perspective as well as any ideas you have for the NEXT super-motherboard.  What other features would you like to see from ASUS? 

You should probably have a registered account or at least be sure you include your email address in the appropriate field so we can contact you!

We will pick the winners soon and move on to the next hardware that finds its way to PC Perspective offices.  Good luck and thanks for reading!!

Thanks Asus, hard to even think what else to add this board has so much already. But I would say improving the ease and dependability of overclocking is always a plus.

Wow, awesome M.B. thank you Asus for your sponsorship of PC Perspectives - much appreciated. How about continued USB 3.0 support and a remote control:)

Thanks Asus:)

Thanks ASUS for sponsoring PC Perspective.

I'm so glad Asus is sponsoring PC Perspective.

I would like to build the "Gaming Machine from Heck" with this new motherboard. I already have two Radeon 4770's to put in this beast.

Looking forward to Asus putting in some sort of remote overclocking switch panel with O/C percentage options and voltages.

Thanks Ryan and Crew!

Shout out to ASUS. Thanking them for their sponsorship of PCPER and for the fine motherboards they've been cranking out for longer than I've existed. Next super-motherboards, I want to see liquid cooling options, i.e. integrated chipset and power system waterblocks. As well as built in automatic pump and radiator regulation, analogous to cpu fan regulation.

Thanks a ton for the sponsorship of PCPer, and for MOBO improvements, folks, I have big clumsy fingers . . . make those onboard connectors easier to deal with! PLEASE! (simple extensions to move the pin plugging out and away from the board!)

Thanks ASUS for sponsoring PC Perspective! Dual processor...

Thanks ASUS!!! I'd like to see something like MSI's 4 LED back panel to debug POST issues on ASUS.

I could use this. My AMD 1090T is a little weak. It's back to Intel for a power rig.

Thanks ASUS for your sponsorship! For the next super motherboard I would like to see unicorns and rainbows.

thanks Asus for sponsoring PC Perspective! more colors!

Thank you ASUS for your sponsorship of PCPer, and for consistently pumping out quality mobos.

What would I like to see? I personally think a nice option would be an integrated fan controller with a 5.25" panel to mount on the front of the case. There are a lot of aftermarket options, but this would be a nice feature to have on-board, especially since the mobo could have the capability to report temperatures and the like directly to an LCD on the front panel attachment, without having to attach separate probes or anything of the sort.

I am a technology enthusiast and enjoy seeing the boundaries pushed and well implemented the way Asus does in their motherboards. It is good to see a quality sponsor such as Asus sponsoring the Pc Perspective podcast, thanks.

Really like asus mobo's, thanks asus for supporting pcper. I would like my next motherboard to accept both intel and amd processors, not much to ask for is it.

April 25, 2011 | 03:47 PM - Posted by Imperfectlink

There probably aren't many ways to improve this motherboard if at all. I have an aging Rampage Formula that I still hold dear. Thanks Asus and PcPerspective for a chance at winning the beginning of my next hardware refresh.

Thank you ASUS for supporting PCPer.

I would suggest making the next motherboard cheaper with all these features.

April 25, 2011 | 03:57 PM - Posted by gassyjoe

Thanks ASUS for sponsoring PC Perspective. I'd love to see built-in Wireless-N on motherboards.

Thanks ASUS :)

ASUS I love you! Many thanks for sponsoring this incredible tech site!

Too bad there isn't a plain old PCI lane. I guess that's pretty old though.

Thank you ASUS for an awesome contest! Built in wireless capability!

about 10 years ago i sat on a plane next to a guy from HP. I outlined several things I wanted in motherboards.

1 swappable/redundant bioses
2 restart and power button
3 very basic operating system

It only took them a few years to get it all in there, but reguardless, this board by ASUS is a great overclocker, has tons of practical features and I am really digging that low profile northbridge and chipset controller. It looks like a 5870 can slip right in there without bumping anything.

A big "Thank You" to Asus for their support of PC Perspective. Looking forward, I would like to see the ability to use different brands (and generations)of video cards in SLI mode.
