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!!

Million thanks to ASUS and PC Perspective!
It would be very good accessories such as a beer opener for users who are bored waiting for some bench time passes ...
I know one ...

Thanks for sponsoring Asus! And thanks for the site, PC Perspective. I'm looking forward to a MoBo with integrated water cooling tubes. Bling-bling :D

Thanks ASUS and PC Perspective!
A great product that can hardly be matched by competitors.

Thanks for the sponsorship, Asus. I looked at the spec page and man, this MB is loaded. The only things I could think of to change is make all the sata ports 6Gbps compatible. And maybe add lightpeak ports? That would be a dream addition at this point I guess.

Thanks Asus for sponsoring PC Perspective! Throwing my hat in for a chance to win this beast of a motherboard.

Asus down to the socks. I've been an Asus fanboy for years.

Thanks, ASUS, for sponsoring pcper.com, you guys are great!

For a suggestion, how about inexpensive dual-CPU (or even quad-CPU) MBs which don't require Xeons to operate?

Thanks Asus! It takes a classy company to recognize a classy website.

Thank you ASUS for sponsoring this PC Perspective giveaway. I love all your products, especially my P7P55D PRO! My idea is you keep getting the positions of slots and connectors better. I mean what's whit the Molex in the middle of the board it should be somewhere around the edge of the board and with the one on the lower left side you can't use it if you don't own a Full Tower. I mean keep your eyes open for the small details, the other things are more then very good with your motherboards!

nice board but i rather have double spacing for dual or triple video card set up. there are some people that rather not mess with water cooling. I water cool my set up and still i prefer double slot spacing

Ive already commented on this board but I just cant tell you how long and how much I,ve always wanted the Asus Maximus board as well as the Rampage all of these are the best Asus has to offer and anyone having this should be proud to own one!Being a part of the ROG Asus club is a feat in itself and I would give anything to be able to aquire this!I would more than happily purchase one but Im unfortunatly on disability and this is far out of my reach to be able to purchase its just a Dream board from Asus that is the best of the best!So please just count me in for a chance and Im hoping to be lucky enough to be on the winners list! Also good luck to everyone here as well!

Thank you Asus for supporting PC Perspective giving them the opportunity to cover the world of Technology with this site and podcast.

As for my ideas for the "NEXT super-motherboard":
1) An on-board emergency OS to format unpartition HDDs and perform maintenance like Anti-virus scans and check disk.
2) Hard drive swappability
3) More Native 3.0 USB and Thunderbolt
4) Wireless N+
5) More spacing between PCI Express slots as to not waste an empty slot because of large video cards.

Thanks ASUS for sponsoring PC Perspective, no suggestions for improving this mobo, it's everything you need and and nothing you don't.

April 27, 2011 | 05:31 AM - Posted by Novelh

Sweet mobo. Thanks ASUS

Thank you ASUS for the sponsorship! I love your products. Thank you PCPer for giving this away! Awesomesauce!

I'd like to see an IR reciever built-in for remote control. Although it is overkill for a HTPC, I use my PC as a ad-hoc movie theater/music player while multi-tasking. Also, please consider adding an info-panel/fan speed controller. After-market stuff is hit-and-miss. An integrated solution from ASUS is bound to be elite.

I love PCper.com!!!

Can I have my MB now?? :))

Thank you ASUS for sponsoring PCper, the only place I go for computer tips, tricks, and suggestions!

Thanks Asus for sponsoring my favourite website. I would like to see a built-in Xonar on the board.

I have two 6870s that are screaming for this board. :)

Thanks ASUS for sponsoring PC Perspective! This Mobo has everything you need for the type of use it's designed for. One Feature I would like to get in any mobo is an integrated RAID chip that could compare with actual raid-cards (not these "fake-Raids" of today) The price of the mobo could be quite high, but perhaps there would be a market???

PcPer: Keep up the good work!

Thanks ASUS, this is indeed quite a nice motherboard. As for what might be nice on a future motherboard. How about dual CPU support in a format similar to the benefit that dual GPUs offer.

Thanks Asus for sponsoring a giveaway.
What would I like to see on an enthusiast motherboard?
no firewire, more rear USB 2.0/3.0 (like 10), I am ok with no eSATA ports, built in WIFI/bluetooth, completely legacy free, I wish BTX and BTX chassis would have survived, the design was good.

Thank you Asus, I listen to PCper's podcast, and frequent thier site. I appriciate your support of PC Perspecive. You have helped me build approximately six systems through the years and I couldn't be happier. I am currently sporting a P6X58D Premium, an Asus HD5870 and a pair of Asus optical drives. The system is great, but I couldn't pass up a chance to upgrade to Sandy Bridge. Keep up the good work.

Sweet, thanks Asus!

Thank you Asus for this giveaway, it’s a dream sandy bridge build motherboard. As already mentioned a remote for starting and shutting down your computer would be really nice(I’ve seen some x58 models). Stick to the color scheme, black and red look viral. The accessories are always full of goodies so that a big plus. What I’m missing is a solely OC dedicated series from Asus(get rid of the tons of ports and some pci). I’m not a big fan of wifi, but some might use it.
