To be honest, when I came to the end of the Fatal1ty P67 Performance I found myself not really feeling over the moon about the board. It's a good board, but I'm not all that happy about the inclusion of three legacy PCI slots at the cost of an extra PCI-E x16.
Overall performance was good; at stock it lined up with more expensive boards as you'd expect and while the overclock wasn't the highest we've seen, it lines up with other ASRock boards we've tested. The look of the board is also pretty good; the theme is strong with the black and red setup.
The thing is, if you head over to Newegg and look around, the price of the Fatal1ty P67 Performance is $144.99 US and there are not a lot of options when it comes to good looking boards. Most use a fairly boring and playing setup, so you can begin to see the value of the board.
If you want the same kind of look, but the options that make for a more expensive board, then you've got the Professional version of the Fatal1ty board which comes in at $219.99 US. The thing is, if you found yourself liking what was on offer from that board but didn't need something so hardcore, then the Performance version we're looking at today could be the board for you.
While it might feel that ASRock have come a little late to the party with this P67 based board, the bottom line is that the P67 is still a very current chipset and as long as you're dealing with the B3 revision then you've got absolutely nothing to worry about.
Considering the age of the chipset as well, we've got a huge amount of options at a strong price point and we're looking at one of those boards today. At $144.99 US you can get the Fatal1ty look we saw on the Professional without the price tag.
