Ok to the questions:

1) No you cant relabel sensors
2) Voltage was measured with DMM, same read point as P8Z68 pro. Didnt do a pic because I didnt solder on a point this time.
3) 120mm fan angle shown here:

4) Fan specs - Fan Speed 4500 RPM, Air Flow Rate 8.63 CFM. Just a thin and small lil guy.
5) Not sure about the sleep issue, never tried it. The beta Im using was to fix an issue with scrolling in uefi so I doubt it was addressed in this one.

I am sure I will have one or two more questions later.....

Edit: Was the drooping voltage measured in just CPZ? I notice the reference to no measurement points.

Was the 120mm fan pointed down or on a 45* on the memory? Or was it positioned facing front to back in front of the memory? Just wondering since I have been thinking of pairing this with a V10 that downdrafts across the memory and wondered if this is roughly the same type of configuration.

Not that there is much for high cfm's on 50mm fans but what was the cfm of the fan used? Just more of a random question.

Have they fixed the resume from sleep issue with the beta bios you are using? Again not a biggie since I hardly ever use sleep anymore since I have moved to ssd's.

I used the slim 50mm, less than 9 cfm. A downward pushing fan around the socket is going to be better but not by a huge margin. 50mm is mid range for cooling effectiveness.

Nice review, and looks to be a solid board too. I just don't like the look of the "armour" on it, but that's just me.

I'm using this board, and I quite like it. If nothing else, the armour just helps the look of the system.

the original review said there were some issues with the 2500k

"However, as we saw in the P8Z68-V Pro review, when we tried a 2500K, OC Tuner was not giving quite enough voltage and the system would freeze up under load."
