crookedvulture writes As we’ve learned, Intel’s Sandy Bridge CPUs are pretty impressive. If you’re going to build yourself a system with one, you’ll need a new motherboard with an 1155-pin socket. The Tech Report has an in-depth look at four such boards based on Intel’s P67 Express chipset. Although the boards offer identical application performance, there are notable differences between their power consumption and the speed of onboard peripherals like USB 3.0 and Serial ATA ports. Some implement the new UEFI BIOS framework while others do not, and the quality of those implementations varies quite a bit. Recommended reading for anyone thinking about rolling their own desktop with one of Intel’s latest CPUs.”
