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.
Can't think of anything else I'd put in that mobo as normally I wouldn't pick up anything half this crazy.

Thank you Asus for sponsoring PCPER.COM and for your AWESOME Motherboards!
The ASUS Maximus IV Extreme P67 B3 Motherboard has got to be the most compete board I've seen yet! Would love to replace my aging M/B with this one.
Loving the BIOS print and GPU.DIMM post features.
Having a swappable BIOS chip would be an added bonus!
Thanks again.
Keep up the great work!

Macsleuth!

Thank you for your sponsorship ASUS.

It would be super awesome to see some lcd overclocking switches and panels on your future motherboards.

Thank you ASUS for sponsoring PC Perspective!! The next super-mobo NEEDs Lasers! :)

Instead of using 4-pin moles, use 8-pin PCI-e connectors to feed more power to the PCI-e slots?

Thank You to Asus for their support of PC Perspective. As for improved features. Better fan management controls!
Most motherboards are still hopelessly primitive in this regard.

Looks like a great MB from ASUS, good luck to all:)

Thanks asus. I think the next big thing id like to see is more than one Boise so that you could change to what everyone you'd want. I could ubstand needed a restart but it would be wicked cool if you could do it with out restarting.

ASUS. Thank you for being a wonderful sponsor and to give PCper a great MB to give away. PCper I love the site and love it even more with the new look. Keep up the good work.

Thank you Asus for donating such an awesome piece of hardware, and to PC Perspective for organizing this giveaway. I am salivating just thinking of having the chance to win this amazing prize. Good luck to all.

Thanks Asus. I'm still loving my R2E. I would love to have a monitoring program that I can use to select various voltages and temps to output to my G19 keyboard, and/or my android phone.

Thanks for another good one ASUS.

As to what I'd like to see, and perhaps ASUS is the only mobo manufacturer whose properties are diverse enough to pull it off, is a small LCD built into the board that can toggle between real time performance (including power draw and temperature) readings. All things considered I'm not sure it would really be useful for the screen to do much more than that, like functioning as a tiny monitor for adjusting the bios and overclocking and so on, and placement (outside the case would be ideal, but at that rate they could just include a mini-display with a cable that you could extend out to your desk or whatever..........) would be something of a logistics nightmare but... If we're talking about going ALL THE WAY then that's definitely the next step.

Failing that since ASUS has gotten their feet wet in the tablet game some kind of advanced synchronization features between their tablets and PCs running their components would be much appreciated. Hell at the current price point their EEE pad is only marginally more than this motherboard anyway so that would just make the prospect of both all the more compelling.

Thanks ASUS for the sponsorship of PC PERSPECTIVE.
It would be cool to see built in full spectrum LEDs that can be adjusted with a switch.

Thank for the sponsorship Asus. Since I`ve bought my last Asus board, funny thing. No more dead motherboards. :)))

Thank you ASUS for sponsoring PC Perspective. Very sexy motherboard.

Thanks ASUS for your sponsorship of PC Perspective.
I would like an alarm that yells (Don't be an idiot!) When you try to push it to far.

Thanks Asus... I loved my p55 board until the socket melted >:D. What feature would I like to see? Hmm, how about moving the RAM a little further away from the CPU seen as our massive syncs are always in the way :).

I am extremely grateful that ASUS is sponsoring PC Perspective. I want a motherboard that will inform me when one of its components, like the CPU, memory, GPU, or hard drives, is failing. My 5-year-old PC is constantly freezing up on me recently, and I can't figure out how to solve it if it's hardware related.

As a long time owner of many ASUS products (24" display, DVDRW drive.....and too many motherboards to count), it's great to see that y'all are sponsoring PCPer. I usually buy a bit down the food chain from this lvl mainboard since look for the sweet spot of the perf/$ ratio so I'm hard put to imagine anything you would need to add to this board. If I had to change anything about the board, I guess I'd move the led that displays the bios post codes to somewhere on the board where it would be more visible from a side window. .... but that is really stretching it.

On a different note, I'm really looking forward to your new Z68, Llano, 900 series AM3+ boards. We'll see once the boys at PCPer get their hands on the upcoming chips, but it really looks like a great time to be putting a new box together.

Thanks ASUS for your patronage of PCPer. I own your laptops and motherboards and look forward to each refresh of your product line-up.

I would like to see more 6Gbps SATA ports, and built-in bluetooth in my next set of ASUS devices.

ASUS is an awesome company. After seeing a dead gigabyte board and a lackluster msi board, i'm glad my socket 775 asus board still lasts to this day. I'm glad they're sponsoring PCper with this deal!

April 25, 2011 | 06:20 PM - Posted by 66pens

Thanks Asus. Quad SLI slot spacing.

April 25, 2011 | 06:25 PM - Posted by richcyph

Thank you ASUS!! Cant wait to see whats next.
I hope it makes sandwiches!
ON a more serious note. I would like to see more color options.

That is one sweet MB. I can barely contain myself just
thinking about what I could do with that beauty!

Thanks PCPer

Asus,
Thank you very much for supporting PC Perspective.
I was pleased with the service that I received on a recently RMA'd AMD 4870x2 graphics card that stopped working.

April 25, 2011 | 06:31 PM - Posted by Starkie24

Thank you Asus for supporting PC Per and offering this lovely piece of hardware that I would absolutely love to put in my case, and would be my 3rd ROG board. I would like a mini OS built in for quick start up for such things as movies and browsing the internet.
