Motherboard Recommendation for my 2600k

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Yes its another one of these threads
And yes, I can only pick one of these motherboards, no "Other" options so don't say "so and so is better on newegg blah blah"

I am limited to what Microcenter has in stock, as I will be using microcenter store credit to purchase this motherboard

Now anyway, here's the choices:

GA-P67A-UD4-B3
http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0358107

Asus P8P67 Deluxe R3
http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0358053

Asus P8Z68-V PRO
http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0364206

Been reading up on all 3, have pros/cons for all 3.
Just want to get some opinions.

Well let me ask you first, what your set up is, and what will you be using the system primarily for?

ASUS P8Z68-V PRO.

Stay away from Gigabyte boards - Gigabyte P67/Z68 boot cycling problem

Even their latest Z68 boards have these issues.

Using memory F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM which I've also tried at 1333. I like many people have tried so many different things it really just seems like a glitchy BIOS or faulty board. The restart button doesn't always cause it. A cold boot after the PC has been off for some time (1 hr.+) always does. But if it's only been 5-10 min. it doesn't do it.

Interestingly though, it will always boot. It may start and shutdown up to 5 times but does eventually boot to windows. I don't think there's any need to unplug the 24-pin connector. And when it occurs it seems to only reset the CPU multiplier. My XMP setting of Profile1, for example, doesn't change. Nor do any other settings. Seems the board thinks the settings are unstable, even if they're default.

I've contacted Gigabyte about this, even pointed them to this thread. I'm waiting for a reply.

I'd go with the gigabyte ud4 personally. If you want touch bios go with the z68 but the p67 is more than adequate and a killer board in general. I've had the asus deluxe and I prefer the board I have. The only real question is, do you have to have bluetooth?

Heh, my ASUS board had boot loop issues, I've had it happen once on my GB board and just hard reset the bios. Perfect since.

Personally, I think the boot-loop issue is blown out of proportion.
