i have narrowed my options down to 2 and have pretty much decided on which one to get but i need help making sure i am making the right decision.

last time i(recently) i got a ga-z68x-ud4-b3 and was happy at first, until all the bootloop issues. i thought id be able to get over those, but nope i cant. it is getting returned and im gettin a new one.

which one?:
asus p8z68-v pro gen3

or

asrock extreme4 gen 3

I'm almost certain that you will not have any problems with the Asus, the BIOS has matured enough and Asus UEFI is quite easy to use, on that note, Asrock has actually stepped up their game in the 1155 market, producing some excellent motherboard, however you could say that BIOS support is still not 100%, but I'm sure they're working on it.

I have seen some excellent overclocks on both motherboard's, so depending on how much you want to spend, I would say Asrock trumps Asus on that side, providing GEN3 support (native Ivy bridge and PCI-E 3.0), however, Asus probably is the leader in the 1155 market because of price/feature/performance I would definitely say Asrock. You won't regret choosing either one of those.

Hope that helps


EDIT:

Just to add, have a little search in the intel mobo section, you will see a ton of threads with the same question, I believe the outcome was choosing an Asrock over the Asus because of the Price/feature/performance ratio.

well price isnt that big of a deal. the ud4 im returning cost me $200 so to jump to $220 isnt that bad.

as your post was helpful in somways it is pretty much what im already thinking lol the deciding factor so far is i have heard of less bootloops on asus boards than onasrock even though i know that it is possible on any board with this chipset

Did a terrible mistake as I thought my P8Z68-Pro was PCI-E 3 ready.
I just got it the other day and built my new comp but damn, now I have to return it ASAP for a Pro Gen 3 hehe!
