I know this sounds weird, but I think it has something to do with the extra graphics processor in the CPU. I tried disabling it, and didn't install virtu and just used my GTX 570, but it still requires about 0.04v more to get stable.

The only reason I switched was because of the fact that I wanted to make sure the computer could sleep. The Z68 boards does this with a BIOS update, however the P8P67 doesn't (at least not for me). But I will probably switch back to the P8P67 Deluxe, since it will give me a better OC with less temps. Plus, the P8Z68 is only 12 phase vcore and 4 phase iGPU, while P8P67 is 16 phase vcore and 2 phase RAM. IMO, P8P67 is way better.
This is a very interesting discovery. I have quoted you in this club:

Finally after a lot of blabbering someone said the truth - the asus p67 deluxe is superior to the z68 deluxe.

The deluxe is one of the best board for using the least vcore (with a capable cpu), the M4E seemed the only one to match it. I believe that there is a correlation with power and vcore. The z68 probably need a BETTER power section, not a lesser one like asus did. See the gen3 asrock boards for instance: 8+2 power phases on the p67 and 8+4 on the z68, i believe they are needed.

I can hardly digest the color theme of the deluxe though and I'm having a hard time to choose an alternative. The asrock z68 fatal1ty may be a worthy one, but i'm getting tired of the black/red too
