Awesome for overclocking, but overpriced.

xdoo675, Ebay

  • Summary: Pros: Excellent for overclocking, gets my i7 2600k to 5.0 with no issues. Good power management. USB 3.0 header. 4 Sata 6Gb/s headers. Ivy Bridge compatible. Nice color scheme. Cons: Pricy if you can't find a used one. PCI slots are unusable if you use crossfire/sli.

Asus P8Z68 deluxe/gen3

Paul Meiners, Amazon
25 April 2012
  • Summary: After receiving a DOA, bent pin, Newegg not wanting to take it back, claiming user induced damage I was really pissed, Newegg stated they are following the Asus policy. User induced damage... first thing I did was open box and check the cpu slot with a magnifying glass... never knew my vision could bend pins. Had to go the credit card charge-back route.

Some issues, but all surmountable, and a good board overall

Grant A. Bugher, Amazon
29 January 2012
  • Summary: I just built a full system around this board: i7-2600K, 256GB Crucial m4 SSD, 16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3-1600, and two eVGA nVidia 580 GTXs in SLI. The pros: It's got all the features you need for both general use and enthusiast (overclocking) use. Things like QuickSync, USB 3.0, and SATA-6, as well as full overclocking controls. If you're the type to put a window on your case, it has a nice blue color scheme and well-designed swoopy-looking heatsinks.

Two defective boards, third board working

Garry Katz, Amazon
15 December 2011
  • Summary: The ASUS P8Z68 Deluxe motherboard has gotten very good reviews, however I had to return two of these boards because they were both defective. It might just be bad luck, but I have never had so much trouble with a motherboards before. The first board would not boot up with a CPU error (the CPU unit was known to be good). The second board did boot successfully, but two of the memory slots (A1 and A2) did not function with good DIMM's.

Excellent Motherboard

S. Morrison, Amazon
30 November 2011
  • Summary: Pros: Very solid performance all-around. Error code display is *extremely* useful for diagnosing issues during builds. Includes USB 3.0 front connector. Very flexible BIOS options and plenty of support/options for overclocking. Cons: Doesn't include faceplate to mount included front USB 3.0 ports in 5" drive bay. BIOS load time seems long.

First Board DOA. Replacement Awesome.

MadMax, Amazon
26 November 2011
  • Summary: I built a computer around this board to replace my old Core 2 Duo on an ASUS P5WDH Deluxe board which was still rockin' but getting long in the tooth after 4 years. The first board I received worked only intermittently. When the board was screwed flat to the case standoffs it would not boot. It gave a memory error. My buddy noticed the board was warped a bit and when I removed the last row of screws to let the board flex back out, it booted. Flat, no boot, flexed, boot.

no issues

Avid Reader, Amazon
22 November 2011
  • Summary: Easy painless install and setup. No issues noted, high quality. Fired up first hit. Using SSD as cache drive was a pain to set up for various reason, and can't say that I'm seeing any benefit. Slower if anything...suspect I'll end up reformatting/configuring and using the SSD as an OS/boot drive.

Onboard Audio won't do Dolby Digital Live for gaming

Jay B, Amazon
2 November 2011
  • Summary: I recently built a brand new system to play Battlefield 3 and next-gen games. I reviewed this motherboard carefully. I saw that there were no video ports as they were sacrificed for an extra gigabit port and other connectivity. I had no problem with that as you almost certainly would have a higher end graphics card when buying a higher end motherboard.
