Please help with new built-up after 8 years - Page 6

I think P8P67 is a better option if overclocking is important to you (should be, up to 4.8GHz-5.0GHz with this board, 50% increase in performance). That reminds me, you should buy an aftermarket cooler for that (4.0-4.2GHz max without it.), Cooler Master 212 plus is cheap and nice one. LE boards are very bad for overclocking, and they lack some other stuff, check it on asus site. Cheaper Z68: Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H.

It would be very nice if you could buy P8Z68-V. If I'm right it's only $122 (on google shopping). Weird, board costs 143 euros in my country.

P8Z68-V costs about $255 here. CRAZY!
P8P67 cost about $210. Also crazy!

newegg price for the P8Z68-V is $180 so it's a $75 difference!!!
newegg price for the P8P67 is $155-160 so it's a $45-50 difference!!!

the Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H isn't available here, is the Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3-B3 the same thing? It costs about $6 more expensive compared to the P8P67!

Is the GA-Z68X-UD3-B3 better than the P8P67?

Same thing except that the one with H in name has video out for igp/quick sync, an this one hasn't. That means it has only SSD caching (intel smart response) more than P8P67, but is not great for oc (4+2 phase power design, enough for 4.3-4.5 GHz maybe even more, don't know how safe that would be, 4+2 phases isn't much). So, I think that P8p67 is better.

Most important feature that Z68 has, and P67 has not is Quick Sync, helps with video encoding and editing in some programs and increases performance. It's only supported by boards with video out / support for igp, for gigabyte only for ones with H in name.

Even cheaper Z68: Gigabyte GA-Z68A-D3, (GA-Z68A-D3H with QS, video out), 4+2 phase power design.

Thank you...

I think I'll go with the P8Z68-V in lieu of the P8P67.

The different revision between P8Z68-V shouldn't matter right? 3.0 vs 3.1 even if I get the 3.0 it could be updated to 3.1? Or should I hunt for the newer 3.1?

How about AsRock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3? How is it compare with the P8Z68-V?

I don't know for versions, but newer should be better. Z68-V is great with any version though.

Edit: There is not much difference between revisions, just different SATA, USB controllers.

Nice. Only if it's not too expensive. P8Z68-V is still better. I don't have experience with AsRock but users who have those boards are very pleased with them.

Any version but the LE version you mean?

The AsRock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 is $21-22 cheaper than the P8Z68-V.

No, I said LE is bad.

AsRock is OK for that price.
