ASUS P8Z68-V PRO, your dream motherboard, offers you a great platform to build your power house with the second generation Intel Core CPUs and releases the full potential of your system. It utilizes the new generation Dual Intelligent Processors 2 - EPU (Energy Processing Unit) and TPU (TurboV Processing Unit), coupled with DIGI+ VRM, to precisely, dynamically and intelligently adjust power supply to achieve optimized performance, extreme system stability and greater power efficiency. The brand new Smart Response technology speeds up data loading by caching your frequently accessed data using an installed SSD, bringing your SSD-like performance and huge capacity of HDD at an affordable price point. The LucidLogix Virtu technology offers you flexibility to switch between IGP and discrete graphics card based on load level, helping achieve a perfect balance between power consumption and noise level.

An array of latest, nice features is included to help you make the most and best out of your system, including EFI BIOS for easy, user-friendly setup, GPU boost function that levels up integrated GPU performance, USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gbps for lightning fast data transfer, Bluetooth technology for enhanced connectivity, Intel Gigabit LAN and AI Suite II for one-stop access to innovative ASUS features. Best of all, the Quad-GPU SLI and Quad-GPU CrossFireX support multiplies graphics performance to deliver the best possible game experience for hardcore gamers.

  • newegg DIGI+ VRM ASUS DIGI+ VRM is an innovative, industry-leading technology that fully integrates Intel VRD12 specifications on a native level, greatly enhancing power to go far beyond the limits of analog designs. ASUS DIGI+ VRM acts as a digital controller to perfectly match digital power signal (SVID) requests from the CPU, eliminating digital-to-analog conversion lag. The exclusive dual driver and MOS design doubles the heat dissipation area with expanded cooling surfaces for improved thermal performance. Spacing components out over a wider area speeds up cooling to enhance reliability and stability. The same exclusive dual driver and MOS design also provides twice the CPU power supply with two complete power stages. This results in far greater phase load tolerances, so the CPU never has to wait for power to arrive, increasing performance and overclocking potential.
  • newegg TPU & EPU The TPU chip offers precise voltage control and advanced monitoring through Auto Tuning and TurboV functions. Auto Tuning offers a user friendly way to automatically optimize the system for fast, yet stable clock speeds, while TurboV enables unlimited freedom to adjust CPU frequencies and ratios for optimized performance in diverse situations. The EPU chip provides a real-time, dynamic power saving by automatically detecting current PC loadings and intelligently moderating power consumption. This also reduces fan noise and extends component longevity!
  • newegg Intel Smart Response Technology Faster Access, Bigger Storage Intel Smart Response Technology boosts overall system performance. It uses an installed fast SSD (min 18.6GB available) as a cache for frequently accessed operations, speeding up hard drive/main memory interaction. Key benefits are expedited hard drive speeds, reduced load and wait times and maximized storage utilization. Power consumption also goes down by reducing unnecessary hard drive spin, an important part of Green ASUS eco-friendly computing.
  • newegg LucidLogix Virtu LucidLogix Virtu is designed for the Intel Sandy Bridge platform's powerful integrated graphics. Its GPU virtualization dynamically assigns tasks to the best available graphics resources based on power, performance and system load on Windows 7 based PCs. It allows users to fully utilize the unique capabilities of advanced Sandy Bridge multimedia features alongside the high end 3D rendering performance provided by installed graphics cards. When no discrete graphics are needed, the graphics card is put in idle mode to lower utilization, heat, fan speed and power draw down to near zero, making the system more environmentally-friendly. For users with diverse needs, LucidLogix Virtu GPU virtualization provides great flexibility and efficiency.
  • newegg UEFI BIOS ASUS UEFI BIOS offers a user-friendly interface that goes beyond traditional keyboard-only BIOS controls to enable more flexible and convenient mouse input. Users can easily navigate the UEFI BIOS with the smoothness of their operating system. Quick and simple overclocking and setup sharing is facilitated by the F12 hotkey BIOS snapshot feature. The exclusive EZ Mode displays frequently-accessed setup info, while the Advanced Mode is for experienced performance enthusiasts that demand far more intricate system control, including detailed DRAM information. ASUS UEFI BIOS natively supports hard drives larger than 2.2TB in 64-bit, with full storage space utilization helping deliver far more exciting computing than traditional BIOS versions.
  • newegg Extra USB 3.0 & SATA III The Asus P8Z68-V PRO is equipped with two rear USB 3.0 ports and supports two front panel USB 3.0 port for lightning fast data transfer speed of 5Gbps - up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0. The SATA 6Gbps support enables blistering fast data transfer of twice the speed of SATA revision II to reduce the system bottleneck and radically improve overall performance.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Super easy to use GUI Bios and desktop app! Install was flawless from the get go and is still working great two years later.

Cons: Desktop app for overclocking doesn't work very well, as far as I can tell but I'm not guru on over clocking here.

Other Thoughts: Great card, it has held up with multiple sound cards and video cards. Very sturdy and the bios are great.

2 out of 5 eggsRMA insanity

Pros: Good while it lasted. One morning, the board just decided to stop functioning. Checked all of my other equipment and it works fine, tried different PSU, GPU , etc. Definitely a bad board.

Cons: Same experience as another newegg member:

"Warranty Support. If you need a replacement under warranty, be prepared to be stunned by their lack of response and inability to handle a simple warranty cross ship. If you are thinking about this board for a business, be prepared to be down for at least 2 weeks to fix your system.

Other Thoughts: My experience of Asus customer service is appalling. You talk to their first line support and that is as far as they respond. They know nothing and forget about action by their escalation department ( virtually nonexistent)"

That was copied from another review but matches my experience. On top of that my board was shipped ground even though I paid for the overnight cross-ship method. Total nightmare.

If you go down, buy another board from Newegg and sell the RMA or something, because you will be waiting a long time to get back to working order.

3 out of 5 eggsNot ASUS's Best

Pros: Solid motherboard. The speed is great, plenty of SATA ports, an ungodly number of USB ports. I loved the board while it worked.

Cons: After about a year and a half of fairly heavy use, all of the audio ports on the rear failed. All of the USB ports started to fail, it almost seemed as if they weren't getting enough power or something. I also chipped one of the RAM things that you push down to release the stick (well these were the ones that were static, I learned that after I chipped it lol). I'm just gonna put it down to being a bad board that I got. ASUS is usually rock solid. I was a little disappointed.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat MOBO

Pros: -Clean good looks
-Great Asus Software
-The EZ bios setup is nice feature
-Great spacing layout of componets

Cons: -Almost owned 2 years and no issues or problems.

Other Thoughts: Not much to say a great mobo if it fits your needs, have had 0 issues or problems, unless your building a very expensive or extreme machine this is all you really need.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks like a charm

Pros: I bought this product more than a year ago and I have not had a single problem with it. It comes with a very consumer friendly BIOS, that you are able to use a mouse with, and easy to follow options. The BIOS program even has a dashboard feature accessible from the desktop that you can use to monitor and control all of the fan speeds, temperatures, etc... I had plenty of ports for all of my case fans, and sata cords.

Cons: none

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great overclocking ability
Supports 32 GB of ram for the sake of things like Photoshop and video editing
Pretty much everything except the couple items in the cons section, neither of which has much of an impact on performance.

Cons: slow bios.
Takes 15s just to post, and can take more than that(up to 25s, maybe more) if I change some settings.

Fails to post if I set my 1600 MHz ram to 1600 MHz instead of 1333. Could possibly be the ram, and this isn't all that important to me. After all, 1333 ram is around 20-30 GB/s.

Other Thoughts: The slow bios is a really annoying problem for me. I paired this with a vertex 4 256 GB ssd which can boot windows 7 in less than 10 seconds. Because of this extra slow bios post, my boot time is now 28 seconds which is highly disappointing seeing as I can get faster boot times from slower SSDs paired with cheaper motherboards.

My motherboard does have the latest BIOS, hopefully asus will come up with a fix for this issue, but I highly doubt they will.

2500k @ 4.4 GHz
H80 water cooler
4 x 8 GB 1600 MHz ram
Radeon HD 4670
256 GB vertex 4 SSD
Fancy 9 TB nas (4 x 3TB, raid 5) for all other storage needs
