EVGA Z68 FTW 160-SB-E689-KR is working perfect for me now for over one solid year!
20 December 2013
Summary: I picked up this NEW EVGA Z68 FTW 160-SB-E689-KR for the incredibly low price of $60. I did not read any of the reviews at the time I purchased this motherboard because the price was so good, and I have never had a problem with EVGA products in the past. Recently, I decided to unpack this motherboard and put a nice rig together. I read every review on this EVGA motherboard at various seller websites. I also carefully checked out the EVGA forums.
Summary: Great motherboard chock full of features built by a cmpany known for manufacturing quality products. Get the right CPU< RAM, ang GPU's, and yoy can have a field day just overclocking this board to frequencies that while stable, are also very high. Technical support is 24/7 and bar none.
Summary: First off let me get this out of the way... I am an EVGA fanboy! No, I hooked this thing up and popped in my i7 2600k and all the other components and poof started right up and runs like a champ. I have since switched to an i7 3770k and another GTX680 for some good ole SLI action and gaming is a whole new world now!!! Now for some watercooling and ill be golden!!!!
Summary: EVGA has been known for many years for their good product. I understand that here and there you might have some problems and defected items. I bought this MOBO from Amazon. 10/10 to Amazon as always. You need to go on EVGA website and Reg. this product for their awesome support. I cant find any cons on this product. I'm proud owner of EVGA products, as I owned many. I OC all the time. Currently 2500k oc (4.0 stock cooler) Will go Water Cooling.
Summary: Great board. I love it and have bought another. I've also recommended this board, because it hasn't caused me any issues yet (knock on wood). This board only has some differences to the board itself, as apposed to the P67 model. The Z68 chip is considered better, but only slightly. It has SSD caching (if you want to use an SSD storage device) and a slight increase in the PWM performance (pulse width modulation).
