post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Well long story short I cannot get my Asus P8p67 Pro to post... I just stays with the MemOK light on....(I done the usual clear cmos, etc.. to try to get it to post but to no avail) I even bought new ram and still wont post. This is AFTER Asus sent the board back to me ... I am going to RMA the board again...but I been down on my PC for at least 3 weeks and that's just to long.

I need recommendations on what board to buy for my i7-2600k ..

Thank you in advance! ...

If you are reluctant to return to ASUS, ASRock have great z68 boards, you could probly find somthing here on the marketplace, since haswell just dropped, some users are probably trying to offload their old parts.

Yea, I'm a huge Asus fan. I'd definitely recommend that board. I'm using the P8Z68-V Pro in my build and I love it. The next build I'm going to put a bit more in and it's definitely going to have an upper end Asus board in it. thumb.gif

the pro has alot of features. make sure you need them all, otherwise the lesser boards will overclock just as well.

Thanks everyone for the awesome suggestions! I just got ASUS to RMA my MB again and they paid the shipping this time. I hope it comes back working if not I'll pick up another board.
