Pros: Cheap and easy.
Cons: Doesn't seem to give the speed that I hoped for when I shot for 6 GB/s. So maybe just go with 3 GB/s and put some money towards a SSD?
Other Thoughts: So maybe just go with 3 GB/s and put some money towards a SSD?READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Tons of Features, great software and bios. Future Gen 3 ready. Nice looking, solid construction. Easy to keep the processor cool, even more so than my Intel Board. Customer Service was pretty friendly with me but I didn't pursue anything but isntead returned it after regular BSOD.
Cons: I don't know if it was this board or Memory but I would tell my wife to break the computer and after usually about 1/2 an hour she would have the Blue Screen Of Death by running enough applications and videos until it dumped because of a secondary processor not doing something. I just returned the board and the memory (Kingston 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1066) and got the Intel DZ68BC and G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 and I have not had a single BSOD. The customer service suggested that the memmory was to blame and so if you do go with this board the tech suggested the G.Skill memory and I went with the most rated memory.
Other Thoughts: Great board, the perfect board in almost every way until the BSOD. I don't know if it was this board or the memory but I felt like it was something to do with power management which could include the memory.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Intel BOXDZ68BC LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Board works without any problems. Has some really sweet lighting that makes you just want to stare. I am kind of sad that I don't have a window in my tower to show it off but in the bios you can turn the lighting effects off if you need or want to. The Wifi and bluetooth header is pretty awesome.
Cons: Did not have a mounting hole in the card section of the board like my ASRock did but this worked whereas my ASRock would BSOD on me at very random times. It was also hard and frustrating to install the drivers. I ended up having to wipe everything, start from scratch and still I had to go and find some custom drivers to get the wifi/blutooth header working and the USB 3.0 front header is still a little quirky. I have not figured out if it is the driver or something else but it is still just running at 2.0 which really defeats the purpose. There is no where to plug in a chassis speaker.
Other Thoughts: I wanted a board with a display port and this was a good priced one. I also had been burned on my first 1155 Board with ASRock Extreme 4 Gen 3 and decided to go with a company that would make it work since it was their processor and board. Not Disappointed at all.READ FULL REVIEW
