Which P67 to go for?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I am about to RMA my ASUS P8P67 B3 (see here why)

The vanilla P8P67 has just about everything I need, so this was the right choice for me but I've had enough of the unsolveable issues.

Could you guys recommend me a similar board in a similar price-range to go for?

Thanks!

ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3. Cheaper, Z68, better PCI/e setup, and looks better IMO.

Looking very nice indeed. I think I'll get this one if I can...

Asrock skimps on PCB quality and warranty. I'd go wth Gigabyte or MSI.

Honestly, the issue you're talking about (double boots) is a) common on all 67/68 boards, I am of the belief it's more a chipset issue than a board hardware issue b) sometimes correctable, sometimes not c) is not hurting your system.

Your words: "This is a fine board, but the issue is driving me nuts"....I'd say your chances of getting same again are pretty good, my advice is get over it. I have in my possession a Gigabyte Z68 board that does the same thing, as well as the ASUS in my sig.
