Rafael Farias, Amazon

ASUS P8Z68 Deluxe/Gen3

Sherman V., Newegg
15 April 2012
  • Summary: I'm surprised that Newegg is still selling this board. Even though it is a fairly new board ASUS no longer lists this board... http://usa.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/Intel_Z68 . They have only had one BIOS upgrade. I don't think ASUS plans on supporting this board.
  • Pros: This is a fairly good motherboard.
  • Cons: Tech support is nonexistent. USB 3 ports for the front box are only USB 2. The rear ports show USB 3. When I contacted ASUS (through e-mail) The tech e-mailed me that they have no other reports of the type of problems problems that I was having. He suggested that I reinstall the software. I had a...

  • Summary: MY RIG: Intel I7-2600 Asus P8Z68 DELUXE/GEN3 Asint DDRIII 2GB-1333 (2X2) (1) EVGA Nvidia 560 Super-Clocked Corsair H60 Antec TRU-Power 1000w PSU
  • Pros: Tons of features, the error code readout is a huge help!
  • Cons: Where do I start? System fails to boot when I insert memory in DIMM slots 1&2. Even after hitting the "MEM OK" button the system still will not post! Slots 3&4 currently operate but total system memory is 4GB's, instead of 8 GBs? Software utilities on DVD wont install from either the DVD or Asus ...

Awesome Board. TERRIBLE SUPPORT

Thomas G., Newegg
6 February 2012
  • Summary: Seriously, I pay so much for a high-end mobo and the customer service is HORRIBLE! I would have rather spent $100 on a gigabyte board so long as I don't have to deal with this incompetent customer service.
  • Pros: Almost everything works, but when you pay this much it should be seamless.
  • Cons: I was able to get everything to post perfectly fine. high quality componenets. But when I went to try and update the BIOS through the EZFlash 2 in the BIOS, I get an "image integrity check failed" on the ROM downloaded from the ASUS site... NO idea what that means. SO I try to call customer suppo...
