ASUS P8Z68-V LX LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Intel Z68
  • Core i7 / i5 / i3 (LGA1155)
  • DDR3 2200(O.C.) / 2133(O.C.) / 1866(O.C.) / 1600 / 1333 / 1066

Pros:

I can't believe this board doesn't have a better overall rating!! I have built numerous systems over the last 25 years and this is by far the easiest build I have ever done. The set-up was simple and the driver updates flawless (with the exception listed below). And the i5-2500K that I paired it up wth overclocked to 4.2 Ghz on a stock cooler. Runs cool and is as stable as Mt. Everest. I am headed back to the computer store tomorrow to buy a Hyper 212 Plus cooler so I can push it a little higher. All in all the new build blows my older Core 2 Quad Q8400 system out of the water - mostly thanks to this motherboard.

Cons:

The only hitch was when I went to update the BIOS and the Easy update in the BIOS setup refused to accept the file provided by Asus "Not a UEFI file" Go figure! It was the file provided by the ASUS website. SO I wound up having to create a DOS flashdrive and updating the BIOS from that. Not serious enough to dock it an egg thouch.

Other Thoughts:

I would not hesitate to buy another or recommend it to my frineds.
