Asus P8Z68-V-PRO vs Asus P8P67-DELUXE V3

post #1 of 10

The price is very similar...

Using a 64gb ssd

500gb black caviar (game directory)

2tb green caviar (storage)

Sli down shortly down the road

What's better?

Bring on opinions please.

P8Z68 Deluxe out of price range unfortunately.

Hey,its me again .
Both board are similar except the chipset.But the Z68 have SSD caching which improves performance a lot.Also need less to say the capacity to "SLI" HD3000 with you card(for time benign until another 560ti comes )

Hey again

Not sure on these new boards, just going by the 'new' factor

Tell me more

Does that mean more fps or it just bu*******

So much confusion right now.

A little fps may be.SSD caching is basically using Your SSD drive as temporary place to store data you use most like OS,2-3 games,other daily used apps.For gaming it means instant loading times and sometimes a little more fps.But for casual pc experience it great!One thing to note is that after you dedicate you 64 gb SSd as a caching drive you cant use its space.What it means that you will still have 500+2TB not 64+500+2tb.

If you go with the P67,you will have to manually take care of what need to be installed in the SSD and what in the HDD.wheres with Z68 caching,with a click of a button you can shift(cache) a game,HD video,etc.

Hope i was clear .

See don't know much about these new chipsets.

My ssd is purely for OS and updates

Microsoft Office (not installed atm)

Photoshop (not installed atm)

Nothing else and I mean nothing else gets installed on there.

Not one game.

48 GB to spare so plenty fast and plenty of space.

Might upgrade to a better ssd in future since i kind of snapped this one and I am forced to use my case top sata bay so it sits nice and flush.

Seems to be unaffected performance and obviously higher temperature since it's outside the box.

My second hard drive is a black caviar and nothing and i mean nothing except for games gets installed there.

Measured games installed on there and ssd no difference in fps just loading times which is fine by me.

The third hard drive is purely just for storage nothing more nothing less.

Option to raid is not there. Hard drives are different in size.

Now considering all of those above doesn't seem like the cashing would be at much use to me?

If i did use the 64 gb for cashing and split the 500 gb into two partitions os/games would it be as fast or faster then the ssd as it stands?

Are there any other real benefits as I already have a video card.

Would it help the 2500k a little bit leaning it closer to 2600k or is this not possible?

Then I see some people having problems with the new chipset as well.

Just need as many opinions as I can get on this really.'

Feel free to post people.

SSD caching is practically useless with a 64GB SSD as 64GB it's more than enough for Windows and a handful of your frequently used programs. If you want your games to load fast, use Steam Mover, it's a program that moves your games from your HDD (where they're installed) to your SSD temporarily so you get fast load times (i'm assuming you use Steam for games).

The other feature of the Z68, the ability to use the integrated video, is also useless to you.

That being said, there really is no advantage of getting a P8P67 Deluxe when the PRO variant produces the same overclocks; the features on the Deluxe are useless (trust me I own one).

In my opinion you should save yourself some money and get a P8P67 PRO. You won't be disappointed.

Windows is already on ssd and that's all really.
Load times don't bother me that much.

I thought so.

Extra heat sink on the deluxe and Q led not worth it as well as the ability to have front usb 3.00 ports?

Is your deluxe board black or brown?

That's another thing I am going for aesthetics.

In some pictures the pro looks brown in some dark brown.

I'v used my Q LED thing like twice and both times it was no help, OCN helped lol.
I'v never used the 3.5" USB 3 ports (the PRO comes with USB 3 PCI bracket anyway).

Yes the Deluxe looks better, but honestly when all your stuff is in there, you won't be able to tell the difference between the two.

Both the Deluxe and Pro use the same colour PCB. It's black, but does look dark brown under light from certain angles.

Edit: What's wrong with the motherboard you have now? (assuming your sig rig is up to date)

Thank you.

Smart move spending the extra cash on the SLI

As for the SSD, I think the controller in that has a problem (the same problem as the Vertex 3), not 100% sure though. Look in to it.
