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.

April 25, 2011 | 03:29 PM - Posted by Gotmilk

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:)

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.

April 25, 2011 | 03:32 PM - Posted by drougnor

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!)

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.

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.

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.

April 25, 2011 | 04:10 PM - Posted by I. Liveclean

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.

Thanx Asus for sponsoring PCPer and unleashing a great number of motherboard beasts!
A cool and unique feature for a Super-motherboard should be: having atleast 5 PCIe x16 slots which will run the penta-GPU's in SLI'd or CF-X all in x16!! Also, a small one-of-a-kind LCD on the mobo for displaying the temperature!
Hoping to see these new features on mobos. 8)

Looks great. Thank-you ASUS for supporting PC Perspective. One think I liked on some of the workstation boards was the little add in LCD and power switch that one could use for diagnostics. I do love that ASUS is using Intel Gigabit LAN connectors instead of realtek ones - keep up the good work ASUS, and keep sponsoring PCPer.com so Ryan and the boys can let us know of the work you are doing.

but a Maximus IV Extreme P67 B3 wuold be nice here in my case!

Thank you ASUS for sponsoring PC Perspective, really help me to get on the market!

I got an idea, what about intagrated flash memory on MB to fast boot and "all in" drivers, discarting cds, donwloads etc...

Thats it! Thanks!! Hope you enjoy my idea!

April 25, 2011 | 04:27 PM - Posted by djskinnyb

Thanks ASUS for the PCPer love! Used a lot of ASUS boards over the years. One thing I would like is a ITX version of an enthusiast board like this one (due to size SLI would be out), but a good BIOS with solid overclocking in a compact size would be appreciated.

April 25, 2011 | 04:28 PM - Posted by CanuckMark

Well thanks ASUS for another awesome motherboard, looking to upgrade my old Q6600 and this would be a good start. And I thanks ASUS for its sponsorship of PC Perspective. Good Luck to all who enter.

A BIG thanks to ASUS for sponsering PC Perspective and for the years of hardcore gaming on your SWEEEET mbs. You've pretty much got all the hardware covered for this gen so on the next gen, hows about an onboard linux based OS that'll give me access to data on corrupt windows drives. Save me some precious gaming/video editing time;)

keep pumping the donations asus! cant say im a huge asus fan, they left a bitter taste in my mouth as it was my first board many years ago and failed on me. perhaps ill jump back on the bandwagon soon. still not sure why manufacturers decide that its a good idea to put the SATA ports on bottom right side of the board..especially since if you get cards like 6970 itll hangover those ports and you have to fiddle around to plug them in since im way to lazy to take my video card out. also move the damn ram slots over a touch, there are some air coolers out there that will spill over to the first slot. granted thats the fault of the idiot cooler makers but still..other than that good job!

April 25, 2011 | 05:01 PM - Posted by Jreacher

Asus, thank you for your sponsorship of pcper.
Cant wait to see what you guys come up with next.
I hope you have more color options in the future.

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!

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

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.

April 25, 2011 | 05:55 PM - Posted by randinspace (not verified)

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.

April 25, 2011 | 05:58 PM - Posted by johnrohn

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.

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 :).

April 25, 2011 | 06:07 PM - Posted by watuzi

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.

April 25, 2011 | 06:10 PM - Posted by ReelTrouble

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.

April 25, 2011 | 06:10 PM - Posted by robbadler (not verified)

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!

THANK YOU Asus!! I love your boards, and have been using them exclusively for the past 15 years building my systems. I would love to see a Rampage IV Extreme with Sandy Bridge support and the next generation FireWire support. I'm sure hardware vendors will be following up with drives, and if not maybe there is a way to implement Apples Thunderbolt? I know you have a soundcard called Thunderbolt so I'm not sure how that would play out. Honestly, the Rampage III Extreme is so damn good, it's kind of hard to top that!! haha

I'd love to have this thing. I'm still rocking an E8400 overclocked to 4.2ghz with a middle of the road P65 board. Even though this thing is still kickin strong, it's time to get back into the overclocking game and do some serious upgrading. It would be cool to see if I've still got my overclocking "chops". Thanks to PC Perspective and Asus for a sweet giveaway. Whoever gets this will be stoked! Hope it's me. :)

Thank you ASUS for the sponsoring. You know what would look good on that motherboard, some watercooling...

Thanks Asus. Your sponcership is much appreciated.
I hope the next model has all the same features but comes in blue and black.

Thanks for being a sponsor Asus! Love your motherboards! I would love to see an intergrated network processor on the next super board.

Nice work ASUS, and thanks for supporting PCP'er (who has a great podcast).

What I'd like to see next is a Z67 based ROG board :)

ASUS offers the most reliable, and easiest to use products I've come across.
I need a board for my build, Either a P67 or a Z68. ASUS is my favorite brand. I was considering a P67 Sabertooth, but this ASUS Maximus IV Extreme P67 could fit the bill.

Thank-you ASUS

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)

April 25, 2011 | 10:04 PM - Posted by iamstarfox

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 =)

April 25, 2011 | 10:18 PM - Posted by emepror (not verified)

this board looks awesome, plenty of features

i hope ASUS continues this trend with X79, LGA 2011

April 25, 2011 | 10:28 PM - Posted by RushManiac

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?

April 25, 2011 | 11:18 PM - Posted by medaugherty (not verified)

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.

April 25, 2011 | 11:20 PM - Posted by Grunteh

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

April 25, 2011 | 11:37 PM - Posted by terminal addict

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 | 11:41 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 | 11:49 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 | 11:51 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 26, 2011 | 12:01 AM - 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 26, 2011 | 12:08 AM - 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 26, 2011 | 12:11 AM - 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 26, 2011 | 12:46 AM - 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.
