Which mobo for SB and Ivy (later)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
What should i buy ?
Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 133€
Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3P 142€ both are rev 1.3 and support gen3 (pci-e 3)
Or should i wait for ASUS P8Z68-V GEN3 165€
Edit: Why all gigabyte mobo only support 1.5V for ram ? i have http://www.ec.kingston.com/ecom/conf...X&promo=hx2shp which have 1.65V
On my current mobo i have set on 1.5V on 1.65 pc crash so that mean i can't oc my cpu or ram with this ram ?

Look into the ASRock Extreme3 Gen3 Z68. It should be a little bit cheaper than your above options, and just as good or better of a board. The Asus line is solid too. My "ancient" P8P67 Pro supports Ivy Bridge chips already.
