Dying motherboard, need suggestions. - Page 3

post #21 of 27
I haven't had a motherboard die on me since I started using ASUS. It's the only brand I use now, has been for my last 2 computers, and will be for the foreseeable future. My new rig I'm building this year will have one in it too.

Alright just found this on amazon. Do you guys think this is the better buy?
http://www.amazon.com/ASUS-P8Z77-V-PRO-Intel-Motherboard/dp/B007G51UV0

Its a little bit over my budget, but whatever.

I don't think it's stupid at all to buy another then re-use or sell the old one once an RMA has been sorted out.

Best outcome I suppose if it were me would be new, mobo/cpu then depending on RMA outcome sell z68 with cpu or just the cpu on its own.

Either way you have a working system sooner, but Gigabyte's response does seem to indicate they are willing to do something about it, so win-win, in fact if you factor in the money from selling cpu/mobo after RMA then you might be able to increase your budget a little.

Saw you looking at various mobos, including a Z77 Assrock extreme 4; have a look at my impressions on the board to help your decision:

Overall I'm ok with the Z77 extreme 4, didn't give me too much grief, and CPU is on a 4.4 ghz OC 24/7 for more than a year now. It's ok as a gap filler till you decide for a major system upgrade.

I decided that im going to just buy a new motherboard for now and wait for a better cpu architecture to come out. Maybe skylake?

For some reason im hooked on the ASUS P8Z77-V PRO
http://www.amazon.com/ASUS-P8Z77-V-PRO-Intel-Motherboard/dp/B007G51UV0

Is that a good board, or should i consider something else?

I was also looking at this
http://www.amazon.com/Intel-Desktop-Board-DZ68BC-BOXDZ68BC/dp/B005PBJF6O
but there are some bad reviews on amazon saying new bios updates bricked boards.

Get the V-Pro. It'll be solid and ASUS Bios is great.
