Help me pick a new mobo

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ok so im returning my P8P67 Pro because something on the board right above the CPU near the heatsink (vrm) is squealing like all hell and nothing fixes it.

The store is out of the same board so I am thinking of either:

Asus P8Z68-V PRO

Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4

Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3R-B3

This issue with the ASUS mobo has made me worried about these ASUS boards, i never had ANY trouble with GIGABYTE boards before, I would still like to try ASUS tho but i'm a bit worried.

Please give reasons for choice but not reasons for BIOS's, just reliability even at stock clocks. Thanks.

I gotta say give asus another shot. I have had great luck with them in all my own builds and I dont use any other manufacturer when building for others as the excellent build quality leaves me with no headaches down the road (sucks you got a bad one, but nobody is perfect)

That said my first matx board is the one in my sig and I am amazed that asus packed all the features of a full sized board in something that cost me 160... Check it out.
