Asus P8Z68 Deluxe vs Gigabyte Z68XP-UD5

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm about to buy my new rig and I'd like some advice about the mobo I should choose. In the end it's between the p8z68 deluxe and ga-z68xp-ud5 with the Asus costing a bit less. I'll be doing oc with a 2600K and xfiring two hd6950. So which one is better ?

People tend to favor ASUS ones for Sandybridge.

I would go ASUS in that case. It's the Deluxe version and comes cheaper VS the Gigabyte motherboard. However, Gigabyte board also looks solid.

Can't go wrong with any of them, though I would take the ASUS one without a doubt.

Both are great, but I'd be leaning towards ASUS. I have a p8p67 deluxe and love it! Good Luck on your build!

The ASUS will have more voltage options. Gigabyte doesn't support LLC and DVID offset at the same time, afaik...unless they have made bios changes, or unless you can find an old bios that does. The 2 together are desireable for overclocking 2500K/2600K. I found this out after the fact, and wish I had gone ASUS.

+1 for the Asus, not been having good experience's with Gigabyte 1155 motherboards.

Also why the deluxe? The PRO/ vanilla are cheaper and near enough the same. See:

According to the table above the deluxe doesn't use the onboard gpu...... thinking.gif
