The P8H67-I Deluxe is laid out similarly to previous H67/H55 mini-ITX boards. Compared to most mATX/ATX boards, many components and connectors are located in completely opposite positions. Our only complaint is the 4-pin AUX12V connector which is placed very close to the socket; ideally it should be located somewhere on the edge for easy access.

The P8H67-I has two 4-pin fan headers, four SATA ports (two 6 Gbps), an internal USB 3.0 header, mini PCI-E slot (occupied by a half height Atheros WiFi adapter), a pair of DDR3 SO-DIMM slots, and a one-piece heatsink covering the VRMs and PCH.

With the CPU socket so close to the PCI-E slot, there are a limited number of performance heatsinks that are compatible with the board. We checked two models, the Prolimatech Samuel 17 and the Scythe Big Shuriken; the latter interfered with the PCI-E slot. Width is the main factor as height was not an issue.

Viewed from another angle.

Oddly, the tabs on the fan headers were a bit wider than standard requiring more force to plug in. We tried several different fan models and none of them fit the way they should.

The back panel is fully stocked with USB 3.0, eSATA, and S/PDIF ports as well as a Bluetooth receiver. Three video outputs are available: HDMI, DVI, and VGA.

The heatsink is held on with three spring-loaded screws on the trace side of the PCB.
