ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
This looks like a good Board. I would want it to take the new 3XXX (well the sb but die shrink Ivy for 1155) chips from Intel, I just want a cheap board with good overclocking, as im about to sell off I7 930 and mobo and ram(after i rma 3 sticks) , or is their a better z68 mobo @~ same price point, i do like the all black colors of it. MIte go sli 580 for it also an 5 ghz overclock if chip lets me. Have to get different cpu cooler or brackets. also i got a dd-gtx580 gpu cooler an its heavy wonder if that would be to much stress on pci-e slot. as ppl say it flimsy.

thanks for trying to read post

There will be 1155 ivy bridge but I think it just doesn't support quad channel ram..

In short 67/68 boards will support it.

Where did you hear about the board being flimsy? I have this board and I have read a lot of reviews on it and I've never heard or felt that the board was flimsy. Great board IMO, no problems with it so far and I love the look.

I have one coming by UPS for my new build tomorrow. After looking at what features it offers, the layout, the looks, and the cost I jumped on it for my new build. It really has 95% of the features of more expensive boards, but at a budget price.

Who do you plan on buying it from? You can get it for $119.99 on SuperBiiz.

I've had a few boards flex before (mostly when installing a stock heatsink), I remember a p35 I had would bow so much I was afraid it wouldn't line up with the mounting holes. I had to push it down in places to actually catch the threads to screw it in.

It was a newegg review on it not beeing strong, I know my asus is rock hard with the extra copper mixed in, I know most if not all newegg reviews are bad, just want to make sure. found a 1366 to 1155 heatkillers mounting bracket, Ok now also the asrock mobo site shows mounting holes only for 1155 pin/1156 but newegg shows mounting holes for 1155/1156 an 775 pin, what ones you guys got. I like the cpu mount to be strong, miote have to order 1155 back plate too, But looking @ mobo it has a plate on back of cpu looks like mite get in the way of this Wish microcenter ha the mobo @ store.

Ok 3XXX not it then but the die shrink, aka ivy for 1155 pin will it work i know we defiantly wont know till chips come out but look @ chip on it pci-3.0 so i hope it dose.
