The user guide of the motherboard is not clear, and there's it no good support on the Sapphire website. Doesn't support the XMP profile of my Patriot G2 Series Division 4GB 1X4GB PC3-12800 DDR3 1600MHz.
I've bought a couple of these for gaming builds - they work great with a 2500/2600k processor. Decent overclocking, good old fashioned BIOS, and room for plenty of expansion. I'd go for a Z77 board personally right now, but these Sapphire P67 ones are not a bad choice by any means.
I bought this board for a budget build. I was a little hesitant at first. But it went on sale for 74.99 and I couldn't resist. The board being fairly new had very little information about it on the net. I paired this with a i5 2500K and 8GB ram and a GTX 570. I was very very impressed. Excellent performance. I tried some overclocking and within half an hour I had it running at 4.6Ghz with some simple setting adjustments. Great board, wont work for SLI but single card set ups, and possibly crossfire no problem though!
