MB to replace ASUS P8Z68D
My ASUS P8Z68 Deluxe is refusing to POST (VGA LED lit and Q-code 06 if anyone has magic fix). I'd like to get a replacement board while I try to fix it. It's been a while since i've kept up with motherboards, so I'd like suggestions on what would be a good deal.
Stuff the new board needs to take:
Koolance CPU-370 waterblock (closed loop)
4x4GB 1600 MHz ram
PCI wifi card
OCZ Vertex 2
OCZ Z1000M PSU
The case size is 1 slot taller than the current board.
Thanks in advance.
Temp replacement??? Check the RAM specs to confirm. Should handle it
Gigabyte B75M-D3H mATX LGA1155 B75 DDR3 2PCI-E16 2PCI HDMI CrossFireX SATA3 USB3.0 Motherboard
Great reviews on that board. Thanks!
or get a MSI Z77A-GD55 and sell the Asus when it come back from RMA, MSI is so advance compare to non ROG board, I can even control and OC the board from my Android or Iphone.
Newegg.ca - MSI Z77A-GD55 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
if you cant think of any physical damage sometimes unplugging power removing battery and shorting the battery connections for a bit will give your bios a solid reset.
but if something else is a miss like pop caps or physical problems then ofc that wont help you.
Hoped that you removed the power cord and press start button before when reset cmos and replaced back 1-2
Q-code 06 which means "Microcode Loading"
reseat cpu (and cmos chip if is sockect mount) and RAM or try 1 stick of ram
I've given up trying to fix and am considering BIOSTAR TZ77XE3 or MSI Z77A-G43 both at $100.
