Thoughts on EVGA Z68 FTW?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking about buying this mobo. Does it overclock well and are there any standby issues?

Got 3 EVGA Z68 SLI's, but not the FTW version. Sorry.

Can't say enough good things about the Z68 SLI however. I can only assume that the Z68 FTW is even better.

3 more SATA 2.0 ports, 2 more USB 3.0 ports, and 4 more PCIe x16/8 slots (as opposed to 1 PCIe x8, 1 PCIe x4, and 2 more PCIe x1 slots), other than that, they are the same.

Just got this board a few weeks ago.

It's nice. Too many LEDs, but it's overclocking pretty well.

I am on air, currently @ 62, 61, 62, 57 max P95.

Multi 48(4884.7)
Bus 101.8
Vcore 1.39
Mem freq 949.9(1898)

Pleased so far.
