I do not think it has pcie 3.0 support. Not sure on that. You need to also make sure you are getting the P8Z68P-V/Gen3 board and not just the regular P8Z68-V.
Hope this helps....biggrin.gif

Thank you so much, that REALLY helps me decide a lot. The only thing I've noticed tha tyou didn't mention is that it seems that the v may not support Sata 6 in RAID but I'm not 100% sure on that. I know the board does have some raid support, but it may not cover the sata 6 ports. Newegg's information is ambiguous. I'm really kinda leaning toward the V.... as long as I'm not losing any OC capacity.

Hi guys,
I also have a P8Z68-VPro/Gen 3 and have a problem with it that I hope you guys can help me with.

If I have to shut down wiondows, it takes forever to post.
The screen goes blank as usual, then the Asus Bios screen appears and it sits there doing nothing for between 3 and 4 minutes, then suddenly, hard disk light flashes and it loads windows up as fast as ever. usually about 10 seconds.

I have tried resetting bios to defaults and it hasnt helped. Could this board have developed a fault?

It was fine when I first got it, bar having a wierd sequence of booting three times, but that was fixed by disabling the marvel and and ESATA controllers.

Basic spec as follows:
i72600K
16GB DDR 3
2x 7970 in X-Fire.
OCZ 240GB SSD
XFX 1250w PSU
Win 7 ultimate 64bit

* I have made a seperate topic about this too *

That is a good question. I do not mess with raid, yet, so I am not sure. I think the v has 2 less sata 3 Ports too. But from what I under stand, the extra Ports suck anyway as they are Marvell, or whatever, instead of Intel.

Do i qualify? biggrin.gif

Have to admit my upgrade, from an Asus P5N32e-SLi Plus with my Q6600 running at a reasonable 3.0GHz, was unreal. These new i5/i7's are rapid thumb.gif

Like the Z68 chipset too, hackintosh seems to work as a second OS.

Oh my God! I didn't know that there were differences between the -V and -V Pro in terms of the buttons in the motherboard itself. I Using the comparison sheet in ASUS' website, it only gave me the idea of more USB ports for the -V Pro and the included USB3.0 bracket. Had I known that there were extra buttons in the motherboard of the -V Pro, I would've gotten that board instead. Now I'm sad because I feel that the CMOS reset button is worth it frown.gif
