Anyone know where i can find a blue colored PCB SLI bridge for my p8z68 v-pro? I lost the flexible one that came in the box (i just moved) and i would like to replace it with a PCB blue so it would match my motherboard. and i didnt like the way the flex one moved around so i wanted to make it PCB but i am unsure of the spacing.

Although I am new here I have used a lot of different forums over the years...


Oh hey, thanks for that. Honestly, I couldn't in good conscience not make a point of correcting my errors. The person I responded to also saw my PM and responded there, so he isn't confused by my errors anymore.

 

All is well in the P67 / Z68 world again!

 

On a side note, I'm curious about the performance gains in the PCIe 3.0 vs PCIe 2.0 technology. I know that x16 vs x8 didn't make much of a difference at all in terms of SLI performance, but I'm wondering how the gen 3 stuff is going to turn out.

Hey all, I jumped ship from AMD, leaving my Phenom II x2 555 BEhind ( see what I did there!? ), and have gone straight to an Asus P8P67-M Pro along with currently running a Pentium G840 cpu (until next month when I have more money). I built my dad a desktop using my spare parts and left overs.

SO, yaay im officially a P8P67 owner, lol XD

Legend has it that it doubles the bandwidth of currently existing PCIe 2.0, or so I heard.

I just finished getting my P8Z68-Gen3 up and running tonight with a 2600K and 16GB of vengeance memory. I transitioned my HDs and SSD over from a dual xeon system. It's crazy how much faster this is than my dual 5410s.

I wasn't planning to overclock it right away, but I was poking around in the BIOS and hit the OC tuner by mistake and it auto overclocked itself to 4.5ghz. I ran some stress tests and everything seems GTG! Oh well, can't put it back to stock now biggrin.gif.

Are you sure about your autotuned overclock settings? Hows your BLCK? Be sure that it isnt too high, it might break something.
I know that overclocked feeling, dont want to go back biggrin.gif

And I do as well! I'm not a gamer but I do a little bit of video rendering/encoding so I decided to OC my P8Z68/V-Pro/GEN 3 I5-2500K system when I got it a few months back and I have not been able to turn back to the stock settings.biggrin.gif
