Gigabyte vs Asus - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Thread Starter 
I will now be looking harder for that asrock board even though it seems it will be pretty pricey ... but only time will tell ...

The main reason I chose the Asus was the whole ... bang for your buck ... thing ... and it would go well with the blue, white and black theme i am going for ... (blue and white once my corsair warranty expires and I spray my psu) ...

I have both an ASUS and a slightly cheaper Gigabyte Z68 boards. The ASUS is better built, has better power handling and voltage regulation. It could be important, or not, but Gigabyte doesnt support offset + LLC at the same time. You can use LLC with manual voltage or offset with no LLC. I'm very firmly in the ASUS camp, this go round. I've used Gigabyte long term with no issues, and do love the dual bios for failed overclock recovery, I just think they haven't quite fully implemented all the benefits of this chipset.

Asus boards are great. BUT, if you ever have to RMA... Asus is terrible.

Yeah assrock haha It rocks ass.

OP, Since you won't be using SSD or SLI for that matter i'd go for Asrock Fatal1ty P67 Performance (B3).

Is the Fatal1ty less optimal for SSD? How so.

Hey all ...

I can't seem 2 get the fatality ... but i can special order the Extreme4 Gen 3 ... but it is more expensive than the Asus P8Z68-V Pro ...

2 questions ... sorry if these are noobish ... lol ...

1) ... What is wrong with P67 vs Z68 ... cause I was looking at the P8P67 Deluxe vs the Z68-V Pro

2) ... What makes the ASRock X4 Gen3 better than the Asus Z68 ... the reason I ask is because apart from PCI-E 3.0 ... I don't see an advantage ...

The asus and asrock boards you are comparing are pretty equivalent for most things based on my research. In the usa, they're the same price. Asus has more power phases than the asrock and the bios is more polished. I wouldn't spend a lot more money for asrock in your situation.
