The P8P67 Pro is a full-sized ATX motherboard designed to work in cases that can fit motherboards of that size. The ASUS P8P67 Pro board is a full-sized ATX motherboard with an all-black coloring. The upper right hand corner of the board is where the 8-pin power connector is located. ASUS has put purple heatsinks over the MOSFETs and the DIGI+ VRMs.
The CPU area is clear of obstacles with only solid capacitors surrounding the LGA-1155 Socket. Below the CPU Socket are four DIMM slots. These can take up to 32GB of DDR3 2200 (OC) memory. Sandy Bridge processors have the memory controller on the CPU with up to DDR3-1600MHz supported out of the box. If you enable the XMP (eXtreme Memory Profiles) and overclock the CPU you can extend the memory frequency to up to DDR3-2200 if it supports it.
The bottom of the board is where the EPU switch is located that is thrown when you want the board to automatically save power. Next to that EPU is where the MemOK! button is located. This button is to enable the MemOK! function, which sets the memory settings to a default setting that allows memory that is incompatible with the board to function.
There are eight SATA 6Gb/second ports on this board. Four of these are of the SATA 6Gb/second variety in White and Purple. The P67 Express chipset supports two SATA 6Gb/second ports natively with the other two controlled by a Marvell chip. Four SATA 3Gb/second ports are also included (Blue). The left side of the Pro board has the FP I/O headers, followed by the POST LED, two fan headers, two USB 2.0 headers, the Power and Reset buttons, the Firewire header and the AAFP header.
The P8P67 Pro has three PCI Express Generation x16 slots. Two of these, the purple and white ones support x16 speed. When two video cards are installed they operate at x8 speed. The third slot operates at x4 speed. Two PCI Express x1 slots and two regular PCI slots are also included on the P8P67 Pro. Onboard audio is provided by the Realtek ALC892 CODEC. The Rear I/O on the board consists of a PS/2 mouse, a PS/2 keyboard port, S/PDIF ports, BT GO! module, six USB 2.0 ports two USB 3.0 ports, Intel Gigabit LAN and jacks for 7.1 audio.
