p8z68-v pro gen3 DOA, out of stock, now what?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
So I need a desktop asap. I am going to ask newegg for my money back and get a new mobo. I think the gen3 is just too new because it seems a lot of people are having problems. Which is probably why the board is out of stock from so many RMA's. (it only has 7 reviews on newegg)

So for a new board I am looking at:
ASUS P8P67 DELUXE (REV 3.0)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131701

Intel BOXDZ68BC
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813121533
(Can't find much on this board. It just looks nice and I like intel lan)

This is being paired with an i5 2500k and will be overclocked. Suggestions would be appreciated.

1) Intel boards don't overclock

2) Take the Asus one

Also, what? Asus is making gen3 1155 boards???

EDIT: What a disappointment, P8P67 PRO is not on the list of PCI-E 3.0 http://event.asus.com/2011/mb/PCIe3_Ready/

Yeah 3 of them and two are sold out on newegg. Only one bios version as of now and people are having major issues with the boards.

I just bought this board. Haven't had a single issue. Works beautifully.

What issues are you/people having with it?

The board isn't a new design. At least, not entirely. It's based on the rock solid Asus P8Z68 series. The only change was adding PCI-E 3.0 Support via an extra chip on board.

Do not get intel boards. I would try to get another z68 gen3. It sucks to wait but I would.

Double even triple post. locks on almost every LED: CPU, RAM, BOOT, VGA. Mine was stuck on VGA and would not post. pretty much my Bios died right before my eyes with the board only being a day old. All the text in my bios looked like: [][][][][][]. It freaked me out. Restarted, no post and solid VGA LED. Asus "Sounds like you have a bad board RMA it back to Newegg." Thanks for the help. The board could be out of stock for over a month for all I know. I need my desktop back.

Went ahead and ordered the P8P67 deluxe. I saw on here it has the 18 phase power so I should be able to overclock the hell out of my 2500k with this board, if it works. "crosses fingers"
