and z68/p67 is mainly for sandy bridge. it doesnt have pci-e 3.0 (for the most part. some boards do have it) and memory can only reach 2133 speeds. sandy bridge doesnt support either of these i assume sb doesnt support faster ram.
z77 was designed for ivy bridge as the boards support higher speed memory and pci-e 3.0. sandy bridge run on them but they dont take advantage of newer chipset/board features.
where you been TwoC ? i havent seen you around for awhile. i assume youve been hanging out in the threads with cooler people? lol .. what bios are you running? im still on 2302. it seemed to help my overclocking the best.
