Need advice on best p67 board

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hi everybody. I am selling my motherboard and cpu to upgrade to the sandy brdge. SO far the maximus IV extreme is the only one that catches my attention. But before i buy this board,i need some advice on how good this board is. I checked youtube videos but they merely show the boards hardware features,etc. SHould i buy this one or is there a better board availaible than this? And can you also tell me the difference between z68 and p67 as i heard there will be a new board released by asus soon (ASUS ROG Maximus IV GENE-Z Z68)

For the same price, even cheaper on some sites, The Asus P67 EVO is much better than the Sabertooth. It has 12 power phases compared to 8 on the Sabertooth.
