Always wondered why modern comuters had such "basic" BIOS in regards to the user interface. Bout time they "modernized" the BIOS a bit.
Now that you mention it I do remember having a 386 with a bios almost identical to that. I just really hope they don't go overboard with the bling. The nice thing about all of the BIOSes now is that it's very simple and straight to the point.

don't bother with 1155, just wait for proper x58 replacement the x68

I got this motherboard and the 2600K cpu, and 8gig 2x4gig corsair vengence memory.
Also got a heatkiller cpu block 1156, this will work with the 1155 motherboards I've read.

I went with the Asus P8P67 Pro instead of the Deluxe. The Deluxe didn't really offer me much more that I would actually use so I decided to save myself the money and put it elsewhere. I also went with the 2500K and 4GB instead of 8GB. I don't do Photoshop work anymore so I don't really need 8GB right now. That money went towards a SSD instead. Best thing about this whole new build is I only payed $7.74 total shipping. Newegg rocks!

EFI bios is interesting, I just hope they don't overdue it. Keep it simple

But Prime95 torture test skyrockets temps in few minutes.

VenomX+1500rpm fan is not enough, i think i got crappy 2600k needs over 1.3v to be LinX stable @ 4500MHz. or maybe i have no idea how to overclock these , Asus MATX board i got P8P67-M Pro does not have alot of options, only few voltage controls and somewhat weird placement of things.

The interesting thing that i really liked if you don't like tinkering or Overclocking headaches at stock in EFI Bios just by selecting Performance preset instead of Normal or Economic , bios auto set CPU to 4100MHz for all cores with XMP profile for memory @ 1833 , ran some benchmarks and it was faster+cooler then my old i920@4200MHz, so that's very nice if you want to just plug and play with good OC out of the box

Anyway goal was to stay under 80C , roadblock was at 4500MHz. In this setup.

I haven't even tried to overclock yet. I'm going to grab a Scythe Mugen 2 as soon as I can verify it's compatible with my board.

No reason it wouldn't be compatible, however the fan will hover over the first two dimm slots, so if you have any memory with tall heatsinks they'll get in the way.

Here's my p67pro with the mugen 2, i though i could raise the fan over the memory but then i can't close the case door.
