    Hi everybody.....
    Well my old Abit AW9D Max is nearly dead. Slowly things are dropping off or stopping working altogether.
    Two SATA port connectors have broken off.
    The rear USB ports stopped working.
    And now the USB risers have stopped working... Lucky I have a PCIe USB card.....

    Its showing its age,I have had it six years and I bought it second hand so i aint complaining it has served me well...

    Any way,I digress...

    Looking at buying a new board. Looked at an Abit IP35 Pro XE. This lets me use my chip and RAM etc but they are pricey for an old board.
    So i started looking at an Asus Maximus II Formula...wow,well dear.
    This lead me to look at other Asus boards,yes I thought, I like the look and sound of these. Sabertooth came cropping up,X58 LGA 1366. 55i LGA 1156.....I sort of like the sound of these cause they use he old BIOS.
    been reading a bit of adding SLIC to the newer UEFI....Downloaded the tool and tested modding my own Asus UEFI .ROM..Yes it seems to have done it.
    So i started looking at LGA 1155 Asua boards and i have sort of plumped for the Sabertooth P67 LGA 1155.

    Finally I get to my question...

    Does anybody on here run the Asus Sabertooth P67 LGA 1155 ?
    Have you added SLIC/SLP info and got Windows 7 installed OK ? ( often run XP too...I still like it )
    Would you recomend the board or not ?


    Cheers for reading. A bit long winded i know....

    Hi redroad...Firstly I would like to say sorry for not replying earlier. I honestly thought that noboday had read this thread and it is only today I realised you had...

    Thanks very much for the info and I will definatly PM hellcry...I have not bought myself a new board yet,funds are too low to splash out on such things but arming my self with the knowledge of been able to add SLIC to a LGA 1155 UEFI board will be great...

    Thnaks....and sorry once again....;)

    No worries .. If you find a mod that has been successfully tested and it may be what you want, download it, and the version of manufacturer's bios used at mod because the links here often become dead after awhile .. Wish you the best on your build even if it is later rather than sooner .. Know how that goes for sure

    I have the Sabertooth P67. It is awesome and you will not regret buying it.

    I haven't modded the BIOS though. Daz' Windows Loader has always worked - without slowing the boot noticeably.

    I have friend who had that board and she ran into loads of cold boot issues.
    Finally got fed up and ditched the whole thing and went with the Maximus IV Gene Z and
    no issues since.

    I've had problems with dead slow boot, but I fixed that by disabling "graphical boot" (that huge SABERTOOTH logo) and by reducing the keypress wait time to 1 second. You should also disable the Marvel SATA controller (unless you absolutely need it, of course), as it slows the boot ridiculously.
