How do we feel about ASUS P8Z68 LE and LX Boards?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Sorry, I know there are probably 100 threads about this.

I am getting a new motherboard and having trouble deciding between motherboards.

Are The Asus LE and LX boards decent?

What are the differences, they seem the same, but the LX is cheaper.


EDIT:

Asrock Extreme 3 Gen 3, thoughts?

The LE has the Realtek 892 chip versus the 887 on the LX (assuming the 892 is better) and the LE has 2 usb 3.0 ports, the LX has none.

I wouldn't get either since neither does cf or sli at x8/x8 - my two cnets

I'd go for this Asus since it is about the same price:

Yeah I saw that but it is Micro ATX :/

The reason I chose those asus boards was because I believe asus is a trustful company. I have had trouble with my MSI board so i tried to avoid them.


Im not so sure about gigabyte and asrock boards.


Think you can fnid a good x8/x8 board, Standard ATX? Im using watercooling as well.

It is hard to say if the Asus boards are enough of a step up from the MSI to make it worth it.
What do you want from the new mobo?

But yeah, since Z68 came out after P67. I figured Z68 is the way to go
