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!!

Big thanks for the sponsoring PC Perspective! Suggestions would be flash to incorporate some flash for a small (linux based) open os for testing/debugging/fault searching/tweaking, and maybe 6 dimms. Looking forward to the z68 release. Thanks again Asus for listening to the Enthusiasts.

Thank you Asus. Anything that simplifies the setup including overclocking would make things good for me.

Thanks ASUS for taking care of PCPer!!!

Some things I would like to see are sharks with lasers and Mid Night Snack all day all the time.

Been saving my pennies for this board not quite there yet. Would love to see how far this board can take my I7. Grats to whom ever gets this bad boy!

Thank you Asus for sponsoring PCper! I make sure your motherboards are in every computer i build for myself or friends. because they are so reliable and come with everything including the kitchen sink. Your next top of the line motherboard should come with some kind of built in SSD storage, or at least optimized for them.

Thank You Asus for sponsoring PCPer, you are awesome!!! You have the best products ever, I have been using Asus Mobos for my whole life, and they have never failed me...Not to mention all the great extra features and overclocking!!! This is the hottest motherboard around, and I want it!!! :)

Thanks ASUS! I want this board!

A big thanks to Asus for sponsoring PCPer.

Things I would like on my motherboards: MOAR integrated SATA ports (12-ish, not necessarily SATAIII, SATAII is fine), always use open-ended PCIe slots (if they are not physical 16x), the extra power connectors for the PCIe bus should be located at the edge of the motherboard, preferably the bottom edge, better integrated audio (SB Live! 24bit / Audigy 2 class - old as time itself, but better sounding then any Realtek ALC8XX), find a way to work with other manufacturers and create standardized BIOS templates (the same setting in BIOS is called six different ways from manufacturer to manufacturer), also bring back green PCBs or at least make new white ones (I'm getting sick of all that brownish black) and, last but not least, the always classic LASER EYED SHARK-COON INFESTED SUPA' PIPES (after resolving any possible copyright issues)!

Thx again.

Thanks ASUS, your the best. Your support is appreciated. Pcper is a great site, not to mention the podcasts are awesome too. Very informative.
For a future improvement how about some custom lites that can be toggled in between different colors so we can light up the inside of our case however we wish.

thanks for the contest guys.

Great stuff ASUS. Thank you for sponsoring PC Perspective.
A popcorn maker on the back end of the next model would be sweet. Heck, put all that heat to work.

Thank you Asus for your support of pcper.
Anything that makes overclocking simpler for the average user
is always a good thing.

ASUS a very good company, very nice that they dish out some treats like this!

Great mobo ASUS! Maybe a salad shooter out the back would be the icing on the cake!

April 26, 2011 | 11:43 AM - Posted by DanWally

Thanks for sponsoring PC Perspective ASUS. I've been using your mobo's and monitors for years an am looking forward the new generation of super mobo's.

Thanks Asus and PC Perspective.
I think that any board would far exceed any expectations on my part!

Thank you ASUS for sponsoring this great prize.

Thanks Asus for sponsoring PC Perspective! The next thing I'd like to see in a motherboard is a tiny embedded linux-run SOC that would be able to mount and share hard drives while the main system is off. The micro-system would take over hard drive hosting and would copy the main system's share name and IP address. I think that would be a great way to allow media sharing while enabling low overall power use in even the most powerful systems.

Holy Cow!! What a motherboard!!
Asus thank you for sponsoring Pc Perspective, and donating your mobo.
I hope your next model comes in green and black.
Thanks Guys.

Thanks ASUS for supporting PcPer.
Thanks one wicked mobo.
To bad it wont do my laundry for me.
Built in wireless is always nice.

Thanks again Asus and pcper.

Thanks Asus and PC Perspective for your unbelievable prize!
Is not my domain, but I think that soundprocessor is poor for its performance.

Thanks Asus!

Thanks Asus for supporting PCPer. I'm not sure what else to ask for in an "improved" model. They seem to have gotten everything I needed and more. How about random neon colors!

If only this board were less expensive when I purchased my current sandy bridge board. This board was definitely worth the cost just didn't have the fundage. I'd like to mimic what a poster before me said...android support would be awesome.

And thanks to ASUS for their continued support of PC Perspective. One of the very few podcasts I look forward to listening to.

April 26, 2011 | 12:18 PM - Posted by TheRock (not verified)

ASUS, Thank You!! Your support of Pc Perspective is very much appreciated by the entire community. I cant wait to see how you can improve upon such a Beast of a Mobo, but I know youll find a way.
Maybe add some visual read outs on small screen, like you had on your Asus Striker extreme 680i. I really enjoyed that feature/board.

April 26, 2011 | 12:18 PM - Posted by nabokovfan87

I think this would be a nice present.

April 26, 2011 | 12:24 PM - Posted by TheRock (not verified)

Thanks ASUS for sponsoring PC Perspective.
I like the idea of visual customization options. Adjustable leds or a choice for blue or green, instead of always just red/black.

Hey ASUS, thanks for supporting PCPER.com, this a an amazing contest. Sure hope I win.
The new site looks great pcper, thanks for the hard work.

I like the idea of simplification, so the simpler the bios and overclocking features the better.

Thanks ASUS for supporting Perspective.
Asus engineers exceeded any dream of mine. However, a breakthrough in terms of cooling, although expensive, can take place on a top motherboard?
