Asus P8Z68 Deluxe vs Gigabyte Z68XP-UD5 - Page 3

post #21 of 39
the p8z68 deluxe does use the onboard gpu. but it can only use d-mode, which means you have to have a graphics card with it. the other boards you can use i-mode, or d-mode.

In i-mode the onboard gpu is always on, and the discrete gpu is only powered on when it is needed.

In d-mode the discrete gpu is always on, and the onboard gpu is only powered on when it is needed.

It didn't make much sense to me at first either but with the google searches I've done, many people have been saying that gigabyte doesn't do overclocks as well as Asus this time around. Might be that I just stumbled upon a sample biased against GB or whatnot. Don't get me wrong, Gigabyte is actually my first option in my future build. That's why I told him best that he research deep into what he really needs in a board.

enthusiast boards typically do not have an on board solution for obvious reasons

between these two borads if we are talking flat out overclock capabilities the UD5 wins outright.

There is no argument for the Deluxe under these circumstances. I know many who have had both these boards and competed with them.

If you are talking about a moderate overclock it is a different story altogether

No need for a Deluxe or a UD5 as a UD4 or a Pro version will do that easily.

Feature rich with moderate overclocking capabilities you may want to look at the AsRock Extreme gen3, I do not know anyone who has one but have heard and read many good things about them on the forum cicuit

I have a UD4 and I must say it is an amazing board for it's target market

Just to clarify Overclock and moderate overclock

Overclock = sub ambient (Phase, chilled water, Dice & Ln2)

Moderate Overclock = ambient and above (Air & water)

Best of luck to you

So on that note, anything above 8+2 is a bonus, 8+2 is more thena capable.
Just right. V-Pro is the board I need.

Thanks for the info.

Thanks to you, too. I'll be doing OC to some extents but nothing too dangerous and will be doing in air cooling. So V-Pro is my choice at this point since I'm also trying to save some money for the budget's sake.

I would say go with gigabyte z68xp ud4.

I've been considering it along with other boards...the only thing that worries me is Ivy Bridge compatibility in the future...in the end Gigabyte never disappointed me...Asus did...so...

Good board. And you could read this for help when overclocking:

Also, Gigabyte boards have better onboard sound (ALC889 with Dolby Digital Live etc.)

On air I would not worry to much. Any mid line board will get you where you are going. I would look to the options and accesories you want in a board.

and base your decision on that, and some base it on looks as well if you have one of those cases with the side panel window

I'm running the Gigayte GA-Z68XP-UD5 right now and it is a solid board. This is actually my second Gigabyte board. I probably didn't use more then 25% of the features on this board. It's either I didn't know what the feature does or I have no use for the feature. The BIOS is loaded with adjustments to everything, but I don't even know what half of them do since I'm just a beginner in the OC field. If you're still considering a Z68 Gigabyte board. You want might to take a look at the GA-Z68XP-UD3 as the price is a lot lower.
