3 out of 5 eggs P8Z68 Deluxe- After 2 yrs. of use 02/02/2013

This review is from: ASUS P8Z68 Deluxe LGA 1155 Intel Z68 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Pros:

Pretty useful BIOS, very user friendly, lots of fan connections, sata II and sata III ports (4 each).
Does what I need it to do (within reason).

Cons:

Lots of cons, Asus Utility does not read CPU temps correctly, it is about 10 deg off, even after I updated. Defeats the whole purpose of utility if info is not correct! Board gets flaky when it comes out of hibernate, causes cpu to max out. You cannot use 1600 ram unless you use all 4 slots, reads 1333 even though I have tried to set it at 1600, it wil revert back to 1333 after some research I found this out. Windows score is 5.9 because of HD's no matter what type of HD is installed, if you install more than 1 HD. Take storage drives out and only leave primary (OS) in and score goes up to 6.9. Have not tried any raid yet, but have read other reviews and they were not good. Lots of other cons, but too many and/or not important enough to mention. Nvidia drivers and Intel drivers are constantly in conflict.

Other Thoughts:

My build; i5 2500k, 8gb ram (1600), 150 gb WD Velociraptor 10,000 rpm (primary HD), 2TB secondary HD, 550 ti GPU. 550 watt PSU (mod). I totally see why Asus has discontinued this board. According to reviews, the next board (Z77) is way better, sounds like Asus may have "ironed out the wrinkles" on Z77. My next build will definately NOT be Asus. Maybe go with MSI or Gigibyte
