Default P67 or Z68

Hi there guys,

first I wanna say "SORRY" for my bad english...


I wanna discuss about the 2 chipsets from the motherboards.

which one is better to use?

I know that the Z68 chipset is more new then the P67

but what performance best and overclocks best

and what is best to choose for in the future ?

They will both perform the same as far as overclocking. The main differences between them is the Z68 units have on-board video and the ability to do SSD caching. Right now the prices are basically the same, so go for the Z68 board. Even if you don't intend to use those features, the option is there in case you change your mind in the future. If I was buying a LGA1155 motherboard right now I would get the ASUS P8Z68-V/GEN3. Getting a Gen3 board allows you to upgrade to Ivy Bridge when it becomes available next year.

Tyvm, maybe I will do that

my budget for a motherboard is max 170 euro ( $237,- )

PS: I like to see some more opinions...

I agree with KrUsHeR. If you are looking for reviews check our motherboard review section and there are plenty. :)

The motherboard I would recommend in that price range would be the ASUS P8Z68-V Pro Gen3. That board has everything I mentioned in my first post.
