For the Core i5-2500K I would recommend comparing vs the previous generation Core i5-655K.

- SATA6 performance: on the Marvel or Intel ports?
- did you test optical drive on the Marvel port? The 9128 spec sheet seems to support it, but according to the motherboard manual, only data drives are supported, not ATAPI ones... It's pretty confusing, isn't it?

I've got a couple of questions about the p8p67 board before being completely sold:
1. How many fan headers does the board have? I'm going to have 4 fans in my new case... will I be able to plug them all into the mobo?
2. The official ASUS site claims that these Mobos can utilize up to 32gb of memory (I assume 4x8gb sticks), but in the review you said they had a max of 16gb. Can you please confirm which answer is correct? I won't be using that much now, but it would be a big selling point for this board if it will expand all the way up to 32gb of RAM in the future (when 8gb ram sticks cost what 4gb sticks cost now). I know Windows 7 Home Premium has a limit of 16gb, but I will be using professional which has a limit of 192gb or something nutty like that.
Thanks again for the review!
You can only run SLI on the P8P67 Deluxe Board, I thought it came with an SLI bridge though.
