ASUS P8P67 DELUXE vs. P8Z68-V PRO

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Guys, can you please help me with my situation?

I am trying to decide between the P67 DELUXE and the Z68 V PRO because they'll cost the same when I buy them

Amazon (tax free, free shipping) = P67 DELUXE 230 U$D
Newegg (has tax and shipping) = Z68 V PRO is 235 U$D

I kinda wanted the ASRock Z68 Extreme 4 but the prices in ebay are jacked up. The 1 year warranty is kind of a turn of as well.

I also kinda wanted the GIGABYTE Z68-UD3H (the only real Z68 they have in the UD line up).. but I haven't heard anything from it.. it looks like the board as half the phases/VRM compared to the "semi fake" Z68 UD3P they have (no Virtu Support and no board monitor out). I also don't know what their Dual BIOS really does.. is that a one time "savior" only? Bust up one bios and I have more time.. but that's it?

Anyway..

The things that I like about the DELUXE are the "Debug LED", "CMOS Clear Button", "PLX Chip" and "16 Phases for CPU".

I heard that this board has a lot of problems though.. but I am not sure if I really have to consider that.. (need tons of opinions bout this)

The only thing that I like about V PRO is that it's a REAL Z68 and I can use the iGPU for transcoding and a back up gpu. (To be honest I don't really do these but I'll never know.. going to college soon). I also heard it has less problems than the DELUXE.

It doesn't have the Debug LED, CMOS Clear Button, PLX Chip and only 12 "Phases for the CPU".

*sigh*

I shouldn't have bought the G.Skill Snipers (1866mhz 9-10-9-28?) from newegg last week just because it was 80 bucks and had a free 2gb flash drive. I have NO IDEA if these'd work well with AMD Bulldozer.. and in G.Skill's site.. it only has a handful of tested boards to go with (all INTEL boards only)frown.gif

I also bought an H50 cooler today *facepalm* I just couldn't resist! frown.gif
Please, anyone.. talk to me or calm me down xD frown.gif

I don't really want to do multi card configs.. just a super, mega, very stable 4.4 Ghz "15hr/7dy", sure (or almost very sure) to support the G.Skill Sniper RAMS and a board that is BIOS idiot friendly.

Get the Deluxe. That's what I'm doing. Why? I don't see a need in any of Z68's extra features over P67. And that, you lose PS/2 ports with the Z68.

Thank you for your input.. Any ideas on how to update the BIOS of the p67? Is it easy and noob friendly?

I heard the DELUXE has some "growing pains" unlike the Z68 though. What do you think about that?

Also, what does your gut tell you about the G.Skill Sniper RAMs that I mentioned? Do you think it'll work with dozer?

Why wouldn't it be easy to update the BIOS/UEFI? It should be a piece of cake. And regarding any growing pains? That's probably the what the whole B3 stepping addressed.

Hm. G.Skill Snipers. Personally, I'd rather get RipjawsX, due to the different quality of chips on. Snipers, I believe are a different brand, RipjawsX are equipped with PSC.

I'm running a deluxe mobo now, it's a pretty good board. I wish that it would have done 3 way sli. Thinking about switching to the EVGA board this week when it comes out just so I can 3 way sli. Let me know if you want a asus deluxe board, mine is 2 months old and it will be priced to sell fast.

ASUS P8P67 Series in general is a very good choice if you don't need the features the Z68 brings to the market.

Also you guys with ASUS P8P67 Series boards are welcome to join my Club ! wink.gif

what's pSC?

I just wish it'd work with dozer.. I kinda like the MSI gd80.. has debug LED, 3way, CMOS button.. Intel's offerings are so expensive frown.gif

Isn't it irritating to reset the jumper everytime? Does one always have to do that with a failed OC setting?

The board's quite problematic according to this thread:
