Best Z68 Motherboard from List (microcenter) - Page 2

post #11 of 26
P8Z68-V. I have had it for a month and it is an absolutely amazing board. I love everything about it so far. I don't think I will ever use BIOS again . UEFI is just so sexy.

If you buy the 2600k with any Z68 mobo, you will get $80 off @ MicroCenter. You will see the discount if you add the selected items to the cart.

I second his motion. I too own the P8Z68-V and its great! I already had experience with the Bios on a Crosshair V board with my AMD setup, and its almost the exact same Bios on Intel. Only issue some might have is it only has (2) SATA 3 ports. But the P8Z68-V Pro has (4).

Do you think the Z68XP-UD4 is worth the $40 premium? What's so much better about it?

What a stable/safe OC for a i7 2600k on air with a decent cooler (Corsair A or Hyper 212 Evo)?

I rather not touch voltage if I don't have to..unless you think I really should...
