In DDR3 test, we used CORSAIR DOMINATOR-GT CMT4GX3M2B2133C9 memory.
DDR3 1867.4 CL6 9-6-24 1T
ADIA64 Memory Read - 23189 MB/s

Maximum Memory-Copy - 25820 MB/s
DDR3 2134.4 CL9 11-9-27 1T
ADIA64 Memory Read - 24898 MB/s
Sandra Memory Bandwidth - 28178 MB/s
Maximum Memory-Copy - 28139MB/s
DDR3 2134.2 CL8 10-8-26 1T
ADIA64 Memory Read - 25291 MB/s
Sandra Memory Bandwidth - 28640 MB/s
Maximum Memory-Copy - 28308MB/s
One of the performance reinforcement of Sandy Bridge is the bandwidth of DDR3.
P67 features dual-channel bandwidth which can catch up tri-channel of X58.
In addition, it’s not necessary to install first bank first when we install DRAM like LGA 1156/LGA1366.
User can when choose any bank to install first with P67.
As for DDR3, we can see the obvious difference between 1866MHz and 2133MHz.
In the test, CORSAIR DDR3 2133 CL9 can be adjusted to CL8 or lower.
If the frequency is set at 2133, the performance gap between CL8 and CL9 is not big which can be shown in the above three different DDR3 bandwidth comparison chart.
If user want to purchase DRAM, suggest considering clock frequency as priority then lower parameter as second.
In SATA3 transfer rate test, we used Intel 510 Series 120GB SSD.
ATTO DISK Benchmark test(over 32k),the SSD delivers read and write speed of 467.8 Mb/s and 231.7 MB/s,respectively.
CrystalDiskMark 4K QD32 Read – 141.8 MB/s Write – 66.11 MB/s
EVEREST File Benchmark test(over 1024k),the SSD delivers read performance of 400 MB/s.
AS SSD Benchmark
Seq Read – 436.63 MB/s Write – 203.53 MB/s
4K-64Thrd Read – 82.25MB/s Write – 66.12 MB/s
Intel 510 Series 120GB delivers read and write speed of up to 450/210 MB/s which is supposed to be the high-end product line in SSD market.
When it matches with P67 chipset, it has a good outperform in STAT3 transfer rate which can reach the spec or higher transfer performance..
Temperature test (Indoor temperature around 28℃)
In idle condition, the temperature is around 39℃~47℃.
When CPU is operating in full speed, the temperature is around 87℃~96℃.
Intel Burn Test v2.4，Stress Level Maximum
Summer is underway, so the indoor temperature also increase which leads to the temperature rise in overclocking platform.
When 2500K is overclocked to 5GHz, apart from the added voltage, the temperature also increases a lot.
You have to pay attention on this. If you want to get a lower temperature, it’s suggested to be overclocked to 4.8GHz and the voltage can be adjusted lower.
In this way, it will feature a better performance in temperature, voltage and power consumption for a long time user.
Surely it is difference for 2500K and it will depend on your own CPU to adjust.
Earlier some Ocers ask me about the performance difference between 2500K & 2600K.
Below is to use 2600K to overclock to 5GHz/DDR3 2134.2(CL=8)/VGA is changed to GTX 560Ti for CPU performance comparison.
CPUMARK 99 => 771
Fritz Chess Benchmark => 39.23/18830
CPU => 9.86 pts
CPU(Single Core) => 2.03 pts
Compared with 2500K, 2600K features more L3 cache by 2MB as well as the Hyper-Threading support.
From the above single-core test, the efficiency performance is close to 2500K.
However, due to the hyper-threading, 2600K features performance improvement by 25% than 2500K under same frequency.
1.The MB has a decent appearance and packing and the pricing is positioned at middle-end P67.
2.It features abundant BIOS option which has wide range of voltage as well as good overclocking performance.
3.Full Japanese solid-state capacitors, builds in POWER/RESET/CMOS Reset button and debugging LED.
4.It also employs OC Switch Button design and support IDE device which is hardly to find in P67 MB.
5.Dual-LAN, two eSATA connectors supporting SATA3,USB3,etc.
1.Without NVIDIA SLI support.
2.CPU voltage can be only displayed by means of self-brand software, some software can’t reveal the true CPU voltage.
3.The market visibility needs to be strengthened for FOXCONN MB.
Price/Performance cost ★★★★★★★★☆☆
Currently many MB manufacturers have begun to launce the latest Z68 products.
The advantages of Z68 is that it features overclocking technology of P67 and display output specs of H67, but the price is more expensive than P67.
The feature of Z68 embedded display won’t be used if user plays game in PC.
The Rattler P67 unleashed by FOXCONN is priced at US$199(NT$5800), which will be set a little higher than entry-level P67 but cheaper that the middle-end one.
The cost performance is relatively good. Surely if it can be a little cheaper to close the price of entry level P67, the market competitive power will be stronger. .
FOXCONN used to target at High End market for Quantum Force series and the price is close to the other manufacturers.
This time we introduce P67 Rattler who’s pricing falls on the middle-end range. It’s really an encouraging thing.
We expect that FOXCONN will unveil X79 motherboard with more preferential price and offer the customers with more choices.
