Asus P8Z68-V VS Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
About to upgrade and decided on these parts:

i5 2500k ( would like to oc to 4.5ghz )
Hyper 212 plus cpu cooler
2x coolmaster sickle flow 120mm (for the cpu cooler)
8gb ddr3 Corsair Vengeance ram
2x Gigabyte OC 6850s ( already have these so can't change them )
Corsair HX650 650W Modular Power Supply
Antec Dark fleet DF-85
or the red and white phantom http://www.computerlounge.co.nz/comp...p?partid=15851

Last thing I have to decide on is the motherboard, what advantages will I gain from having the Asus P8Z68? Its quite a bit more expensive and just wondering if its worth getting over the Gigabyte. Also if there are any suggestions to what I'm getting that would be appreciated.

Thanks

With the asus you have more power phases and uefi bios and i think two extra sata 3gb ports.

Both will overclock to 4.5 ghz fine

What will the power phases do for me?
post #4 of 10
Personally, I think the Gigabyte boards look awesome

More power phases means better/more stable overclocking, but the Gigabyte is still a fine board even though the Asus has more phases.

I would get the Gigabyte

higher/stabler oc's and on some cpu overclocks more means less chance of the board catching fire due to to little or crappy cooling on them.

Thanks for the replies. Also would you recommend the cooler i chose or the COOLERMASTER V6GT? Also the psu I chose or the FSP AM-650MG 650W AURUM MODULAR PSU 80 PLUS GOLD?

I've just got different quotes from different shops and trying to choose haha.

Thanks

Hyper 212+/EVO beats V6GT and V8.

Stick with Corsair.

You have almost the same system as I want to make. I have some questions about it, could you help me?

-Did you have any troubles with HAF X? For example: was there any troubles with installing you Gigabyte MB and Graphic Card in this case?

-why you chose 1600Mhz Memory but not 2133Mhz?

-is it possible to buy iSSD for MB for "Smart Response Technology" separately and connect it by your own?
