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

For the next one Triple 10GbE Lan connections

I would say a way to print out the BIOS settings
but can see it already has that

so maybe a Supa-Dupa Heat Pipe?

Thanks ASUS for sponsoring PC Perspective.

Thank you Asus for the PcPer sponsorship. Why not keep ahead of the curve and integrate Thunderbolt connections? Excellent products and great notebooks!

Thank you ASUS for your sponsorship of PC Perspective. How about an Android app for ROG iDirect. Also, a more intelligent on board RAID that works more like a Drobo or drive extender.

Thank you, Asus, for your continued support of PCPerspective, and for keeping all of us enthusiasts happy with the cool products you produce.

Thank you very much to Asus for sponsoring PCPer. Great sponsors like Asus help make this site what it is. Thank you to Ryan and his posse because it takes great content to attract such great sponsors. As for what the next great MB should have? How about six quarts of liquid nitrogen included in the box! Pump up the voltage and lower the temps there is some OC'ing about to happen. At the very least Josh could use it to keep his micro-brews chilled!

Thanks Asus for supporting PCPerspective!!
My thoughts on future motherboards are I am mostly concerned with utilizing all the memory slots with high end air cooling (and these are at odds with each other... so anything that can be done to ensure this with as many cooling solutions, the better)
Cheers!

Wow!... This is really a nice high-end motherboard. Thanks to ASUS for providing it for the giveaway to celebrate the new PC Perspective web site! As for what I'd like to see on future motherboards... I kind of like them to have a little 2 character LED readout, so if the board throws an error code during boot, I can see what it is.

Thank you ASUS for your sponsorship of PCPer, I purchased a p8p67le because thats all newegg had in stock when I went to build my sandybridge upgrade. But this one is a bit nicer, too bad it wasn't in stock when I did my upgrade =)

this board looks awesome, plenty of features

i hope ASUS continues this trend with X79, LGA 2011

Thanks Asus for the being part of Pc Per and sponsoring them and helping with their new website celebration. I would love for all new motherboards to have UEFI and get rid of BIOS once and for all. Also, that you have spaced out x16 PCI-E slots to make it easier to SLI/Crossfire multiple graphics card to provide ample space for cooling.

Thank You ASUS for making such wonderful product for our pleasure. Keep up the good works :P

Thanks to Asus for sponsoring PCPer! Asus is always my first motherboard choice when building a new PC. I continue to look forward to Asus producing top-quality motherboards at affordable prices.

Great but does anyone ever win in one of these?

Thanks Asus for supporting PCPerspective!!
I think a clear pcb and a jumbo decal for the motherboard tray. The decal could be reflective with ASUS and PCPerspective in the center.

Thanks for the sponsorship ASUS! I would like to see 2 motherboards in the future:
1. A M-ATX board with Dual PCIe 2.0 x16 slots, in the right place. I've found about 3 or 4 of them, which makes me angry.

2. A ATX board that has 7 PCIe 2.0 x16 slots, and they aren't moved down an extra slot.

Thanks Asus for your support of PC Perspective. I would like to see better temperature sensors on motherboards.

pick me

Wow! Thanks Asus! Sweet board. It's hard to find ways to improve that layout. Can't remember the last time I had a PCI card. I know some people still need legacy slots and ports, but it's nice to see boards available that ditch them completely (well , almost).

Thanks Asus for supporting PCPer!
I'd like to see Intel's LightPeak on the next round of mobos

April 25, 2011 | 08:41 PM - Posted by J.Andrews (not verified)

Thanks to Asus for sponsoring pcper.com 4.0. It looks great. A couple wishes I have for future "super" motherboards are: more SLI-enabled boards on the budget end, dual processor slots and higher RAM limits.

I had learned a lot from the Pcperspective team. Thanks for support the site and make this possible. It's a great way to advertise, everybody wins. By the way, my first, in the Pentium hundred series had a Asus mb. Ahh. Can you change this CAPTCHA engine please? it's was a great challenge.

April 25, 2011 | 08:49 PM - Posted by alex

Thank you PC Perspective and ASUS for the giveaway. Your Asus mobo's are great especially the ROG editions.
I would like to see some built in wireless-n mobos too.

April 25, 2011 | 08:51 PM - Posted by Michael (not verified)

As always, great support to community by Asus & PCPER!
Thank you!

Built-in wireless would be great! especially one that can be easily supported by all different operating systems.

April 25, 2011 | 09:01 PM - Posted by alexandria (not verified)

Thank you ASUS! Your support is greatly appreciated.
I love the new site pcper.

I wish the future mobos came in blue.

April 25, 2011 | 09:08 PM - Posted by Dreadteir

Thank You Asus for your support of PC Perspective! My recommendation for your next Super Motherboard is a built-in HD TV Tuner :)

April 25, 2011 | 09:11 PM - Posted by mjfigur

Thank you Asus I really really need this otherwise I cannot afford to build a new system! Thanks for your support and love the new site.

Asus you did it again. Produced an amazing board thats caught the eye of every enthusiast. Thanks for supporting pcper and donating your newest board. I hope the next ones come out with a smaller price tag.
Keep up the good work pcper.

Thank you ASUS ans PCPer.

I would love to start seeing more of a hardware RAID controller included on their motherboards. Intel's on-board RAID uses your CPU and therefore it's not a true hardware RAID controller. I'd like to run a RAID 5 without taking a performance penalty and not have to spend a few hundred dollars for a decent RAID controller.

April 25, 2011 | 09:46 PM - Posted by firesage2000

Thank you Asus for supporting Pc Perspective. How about on the next mother board go crazy and add more ram slots.

Also, I wouldn't even have known about this site if it were not for the 'My Brother, My Brother and Me' podcast. So your guys money at least got another person to your cool website.
