I got the Extreme4 Gen3 a couple of weeks ago with my new build and I love it! Overclocking my 2500k was really easy because of the preset settings. Overall great board for the price.

Keep an eye out if anyone is looking for the Extreme 4 for a really good price:) As soon as I get the new board all set I'll be selling the 4. Hate to sell it but I have no need for 4 pc's.

I have one Z68 Fatal1ty Pro. Gen3 and am happy with it but we're new Bios from 8/19/2011.

Anyone know of new Beta Bios with changes?

Yea, a thicker board would account for the extra weight, hell i'm happy with the e4.
Man, it's gotta be eating you up looking at it sitting in a box...lol

This is using the preset OC in the BIOS. I'm just playing around with my rig today. I'm off so I can. Dang it's good not to be at work. Lol!
