Introduction

Even though the Intel Z68 chipset is out there, motherboards based on the Intel P67 continue to be attractive options for systems based on Intel socket LGA1155 CPUs. In fact, according to ASUS, the sales of P67-based motherboards are still outperforming those of Z68-based products. The Sabertooth P67 is a top mid-range (or entry high-end, depending on your point of view) motherboard that focuses on quality. Let’s see what is so special about this model.

On the Sabertooth P67, quality is everywhere. The product is tested for reliability by an independent testing lab (Integrated Service Technology), and the individual tests conducted include vibration, thermal, shock, moisture resistance, salt spray, and more. Second, the capacitors, coils, and transistors available on this motherboard are military-grade, meaning that they can withstand a higher temperature range and have a lower tolerance. Third, this is one of the few motherboards with a five-year warranty.

One of the unique features of this motherboard is the presence of a plastic sheet covering its components. See Figure 1. It works as a thermal cover to prevent the hot air blown by the CPU cooler and video cards from heating the motherboard components. You can install a 50 mm fan to cool down the motherboard components by removing the 2 x 2 inch (50 x 50 mm) part available between the first PCI Express x16 slot and the CPU socket.
