under harsh light all black PCBs look a little brown. I bet if you used flash when taking a picture of your board it would look a little brown.

Just ordered mine! Will the Z68 version have a different BIOS than the P67?

Yes it is going to be better. New V-sync tech. Doesn't lock you at 60fps anymore. If your getting 100-120fps, you will see it instead of being capped at 60fps and feeling sluggish in fast moving games. Faster trasncoding since it uses the iGPU in the chip which P67 can't do. SSD caching is also a feature of Z68. Hopefully it's also a more refined chip set with better stability.

Same website has the P67 version under what I'd assume is the same light and it looks 100% black. Just looks weird I guess.
