ASUS P8Z68-V LX, 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 Dual Intelligent Processors Technology integrating EPU (Energy Processing Unit) and TPU (TurboV Processing Unit) for superior processor scaling, extreme system stability and greater power efficiency. The 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.

Other nice features are included to help you make the most and best out of your system, including EFI BIOS for easy, user-friendly setup and GPU boost function that levels up integrated GPU performance, USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gbps for lightning fast data transfer.

  • newegg Dual Intelligent Processors - 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 USB 3.0 & SATA III The Asus P8Z68-V LX is equipped with two rear USB 3.0 ports for lightning fast data transfer speed of 5Gbps - up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0.

Do Not Purchase from Corn Electronics 8/15/2019 11:22:54 AM

Pros: I received the correct item within the given time-frame, and the item is *mostly* functional.

Cons: I ordered this motherboard, used, from Corn Electronics, in "Like New" condition. However, the item I received was absolutely filthy. There were signs of corrosion on some elements, and the item appeared to have been stored in a facility that allowed frequent indoor smoking. I would personally have described its condition as "acceptable".

Additionally, the motherboard was shipped to me without half-a-dozen drivers installed, including the one used for Ethernet. It literally could not even connect to the internet. I had to scour the internet on my laptop for the correct drivers, save them to a USB drive, take said USB drive to my desktop, and install them myself.

Finally, just today I attempted to install a WiFi card, only to discover that one of the slots on this board DOES NOT EVEN FUNCTION. Thankfully there was another available slot that wasn't broken.

Overall Review: This was my first experience shopping with Corn Electronics, and I will absolutely never purchase anything from them again. The product description was outright deceitful. If you purchase something from this company, they will gleefully take your money and then send you an electronics component that has been stored in an ashtray.

ASUS P8Z68-V LX 1155 1/8/2014 6:19:14 PM

Pros: Nice board with many integrated features. Build in video works pretty well for basic internet and word processing use.

Cons: Unable to get an external video card to work. The first micro I installed (Intel I3 2100) worked for about 6 months; then started getting cpu overtemp. Played with the fan but no joy. Replaced the micro and the board works fine but still have the video card issue.

Overall Review: I've upgraded the bios; cleared the memory and now am considering rma through asus.

I've used ASUS motherboards for many years and never had this level of frustration.

Motherboard from the future 7/28/2012 11:00:37 PM

Pros: A motherboard that includes USB 3.0, 8 channel audio, Crossfire ability, UEFI BIOS, Ivy bridge compatibility, onboard HDMI, DVI, and VGA outputs, aftermarket cooling space, SATA 6.0, and being UNDER 150 United States Dollars is a great board for a budget. The UEFI BIOS is a major upgrade from the complicated DOS BIOS. SATA 6.0 that can make use of Solid State Drives. Ivy bridge compatibility. USB 3.0 is a exceptional addition. Great for builds that are standard and on a budget.

Cons: Somewhat picky with Ram, check the manufacturer page for Ram it will save you a headache. Ironically installing the I/O shield was the most difficult part of the build. Razor sharp edges on the shield and the left over aluminum from the output port areas made lining up the ports frustrating. Second PCIe 2.0 slot runs at 4x speed but knew that when purchasing it. Just nit picks really.

Overall Review: A 120 USD motherboard with more features than a board worth 250 USD is quite a deal. Strange dimensions but not really a pro or con. The black/second PCIe 2.0 slot is at 4x speed. Which means it will run slower than the Blue/first PCIe 2.0 slot at 16x speed. This Crossfire is primarily designed to take off heat from the first GPU. All in all this board is amazing for the price. Don't be fooled to buy a cheap motherboard with little to no expandability, this board will give you more expandability in the long run.

Update on bad review 7/28/2012 11:21:22 AM

Pros: I need to take back my bad review. Great BIOS. Back to being a very loyal Asus customer.

Cons: Still not as good as my previous Asus motherboard.

Overall Review: I unfairly criticized Asus for not responding to a ticket submission. What happened is they sent me a link to look up what was happening with the ticket. I looked it up and it said it was under review. I was expecting an email which I never got telling me what to do next. I later looked at the link and it told me what to do.

Yup 7/27/2012 1:38:22 PM

Pros: Looks great, Its Asus, Simple layout.

Cons: Sound no longer works.

Overall Review: I enjoy Asus brand quite a bit. Though this is the 1st time out of all my builds I have every had any issue with there boards. The sound has just stopped working on the board and I have noticed a scratch on the board and fallowed it. Yup you guessed it, went strait to the sound chip. While everything else works great with the system I just have no sound. The board needs to be replaced obviously so I'll see how Asus's customer support is and will do a fallow up post on this.

Over all OK 7/23/2012 4:55:12 AM

Pros: The board was easy to install, and has case mount holes to fit a variety of cases. The bios is great. Over all the board is great, minus a few defects, my board has.

Cons: knocked an egg off for the first 3 1/2 months it kept beeping, 9 times, every-time I turned the computer on, restarted it, or woke it up from hibernation mode, haven't gotten another internal speaker to see if the beeping stopped because of the one on it now blew (doubt).

Knocked an egg off because the 2 3.0 USB slots will NOT work, the only thing I tried to plug into the board was my external docking station. It is a 2.0 device, but 3.0 is backwards compatible, I have used it on other computers that have 3.0 so I know for sure.

Knocked an egg off because of the Tech Support. The tech support I got last time I called about the beeping told me that it most likely ether my CPU or my RAM, tested both of them and they were perfectly fine. Contacted them again the tech support basically gave me the run around, so I am stuck with a board that doesn't fully work.

Manufacturer Response:
Dear Valued Customer,

We apologize for the issue you had with the motherboard.

Typically beep codes are 1 long and up to 4 short beeps. It is unusal that the motherboard emits that many beeps. After 9 beeps, does the system perform normally? While it beeps, does POST continue or are there error messages? Could the beep come from another device such as an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)?

In order to use USB 3.0 slots in Windows, drivers must be installed. Please try to uninstall and reinstall drivers them here: http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8Z68V_LX/#download. Have you tried using Legacy USB 3.0 mode in BIOS? If your devices are not plugged into the docking station but straight into the USB 3.0 slots, will they work?

To continue troubleshooting, please contact me at cl-benson@asus.com reference #C1037-3155.

Regards,
Benson

Asus P8Z68-V LX LGA155 Intel Z68 board. 7/22/2012 10:42:26 PM

Pros: Neweggs price, service and delivery. Very nice board. Alot of features that only high end boards have. Installed well, fired up instantly, loaded Windows in 12 minutes. Was up on the Internet in 45 minutes with setup and security installed. Had coffee too.

Cons: None. I read the reviews here before I purchased the board and checked accordingly. See others thoughts below.

Overall Review: HDMI header is on the back of the board. My case cable is long enough to reach it. Ran it along the side of the top of the case and down the back, perfect length.
Fan of the CPU cooler is in the way of the first memory slot. Installed the fan on the opposite side pulling air through the cooler. Very close to the rear case fan, pulls the air right out.
PWM fan headers are on the top edge of board. Makes it tight with a top case fan. Install the top fan after cooler fan and rear fan cables are conected.
The board is a little short in the front, missing 3 screw holes. Connecting the 24 pin PSU cable and installing memory I had the feeling of the board breaking. Fabbed up a pad to slip under the board while these items were being done.
All in all, I am very happy with it. Performs Eggcelently!!
