Z68 Unboxing

This one even has some BIOS shots.
Thanks so much for the post. Great looking board I was particularly interested to see the pic of the IO portion of the board. No output for DVI,VGA,or HDMI...suggesting the need for a GPU anyway.

If that is consistent thru all of the Z68 boards....I will most likely opt for an Asus Pro or a Giga UD4P

Rep party on the way...except for you know who

Wow, that's a gorgeous board!

I'd agree with the general consensus that Z68 will be similarly priced with the P67 boards (or it should be if they hope to actually sell these things).

The biggest benefit on the new boards is really the SSD caching, which is really only a big selling point to people using small SSD boot drives. If your SSD is big enough to hold all your primary apps to begin with, you don't really have anything to gain from it.

More good info. My OS and "all" installed apps barely hits 30gb ,so that obviously won't be a help to me. If either Giga or Asus comes out with a Z68 board allowing direct hookup to monitor without a GPU then I'm on it like white on rice. Otherwise I will get a Pro..Evo...or a UD4P....and a new GPU

Since I neither game nor watch bluray on the monitor the Int graphics would be fine with me. I stream bluray via Cat6 to flatscreen TVs for bluray/HD

I found this in the links from drka0tic. It is an Asrock board and has direct connections. It says power phase 8+4. How does that differ from 12+2 on ASUS Pro? Maybe the Asus boards will have these connections

This positioning in the high-end market, Z68 motherboard, motherboard capacitors using Japanese solid state capacitors, part of the overall use of materials is quite good, with 8 + 4-phase power supply design, MOS large area are also to be inhibited heat pipe heat sink load MOS Temperature,
CPU-side 12V input use 8PIN, and to provide fan power terminals 6 groups (group 2 PWM, 4 group of small 3PIN) motherboard to provide 4 SATA3 (native), group 2 SATA2, also the overall color dark blue color with quite a high-end products texture,
DESIGNED IN TAIPEI is a good design.

That AsRock looks beastly. So they WILL be integrating video out options. The other manufacturers should be also able to do the same.

Thanks, I found it in some of the other links in your "unboxing link". So far I haven't seen a Giga board with those outputs...hoping Asus will have along with the more typical 12+2 power phases

If I only had the money ...
I could get used to the Quick Sync + 2x GTX 460's ..


I presume these will sell at higher prices than the current P67 boards. By how much, I cannot say.
These Z68's are considered High End, and damn, they look awefully sexy.
