  • 3 year warranty.

Cons:
  • Odd color combination.
  • Slow boot.


ASRock

Pros:
  • Black PCB and slots.
  • Molex peripheral (additional power for PCIe slots).
  • Onboard power and reset buttons.
  • Rear clear CMOS button.
  • Onboard debug LED.
  • PCI Express 3.0 compliant.
  • PLX chip.

Cons:
  • 8+2 phase.
  • Etron USB 3.0 controller
  • Realtek Gigabit LAN.
  • UEFI is a bit lacking, not as unified as Asus.
  • 1 year warranty
I thought only the ASRock z68 fatal1ty pro boards came with the PCI-E 3.0 slots?

[edit] now I see that the gen3 revision also has the pci-e 3.0 slots.

Asus Pro just because it looks good. I have an all black Gigabyte board and I think all black looks lame compared the black/neon blue on the Asus board.

Thank you for all the info.
Are there any Z68 boards that would be a better choice than the two in question for a $150ish price tag?

Not really. The Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z is a good contender if you want to absolutely go with Z68. Otherwise the Asus P8P67 Pro would be the better solution.

I think I'll be picking up the Extreme4 even if it only has 8+2 phase.

I plan on having a 5GHZ or more overclock 24/7 as my processor's cooling is more than excellent; I am just worried that the 8+2 phase will cause problems...

Stable voltage?
Hot MOSFETS?
1.52v capabilities?
(Yeah I know that's high for 24/7.)

Would love some feedback on this instead of creating a new thread. I figured I'd just make another post here.

I have had the regular Z68 Extreme4 and it is a very good board, the Gen3 is even better.. I vote for the ASRock.

Generally its quality > quantity. And according to the ASRock website its 8+4 :s

Looks like despite the 8+4 phase disadvantage, ASRock gen3 is still a solid motherboard that should net decent overclocks. The decision has been made.
