    Question Quick Opinion: Asrock, Asus or Gigabyte

    Dear Gamers,

    I need your opinions to help decide on a motherboard. As I am getting a new PC for myself, the final few components need to be finalized.

    I have three options for the motherboard:

    1. Asrock Z68 Pro 3
    2. Asus PP67 Pro
    3. Gigabyte Z68XP-UD3

    The Asrock unit has a single PCIX16 slot, good overclocker but no VRM cooling

    The Asus unit has brilliant overclocking potential, two PCIX16 slots (x8, x8), heatsinks on the VRM & capacitors and also has P67 chipset, so no Virtu

    The Gigabyte has decent options, two PCIX16 slots (x8, x8), no VRM cooling, relatively low cpu power phases, low overclocking potential but has Lucid Virtu

    Now, the motherboard is going to be paired with a core i5 2500k processor.

    Rest of the config (already here, except for the gpu):
    G.Skill Ripjaws 1600Mhz 8Gb CL9, Crucial M4 64Gb, XFX Black Edition 750W PSU, EVGA GTX 580 (pending), Cooler Master Hyper 212+, AOC F22 21.5" Monitor

    Please give me your opinions, clearly explaining your reasoning, so that I can understand your logic behind it. It will help me better understand your choice and make an informed decision.

    Thanks!

    (Note: Regarding the gpu, going SLI is not an option for me within the next 6/8 months)

    The gigabyte one gets the tomshardware recommended award. They compare it with 5-6 other motherboard of same price range. I can't give you the link right now, i'm on mobile. You can google it.

    i read that article, thanks for mentioning it. OC capability is important to me, hence I am a bit cautious about the gigabyte board. Good reference, thanks again.

    Well, if you overclock on air all the top tier brand p67 or z68 are okay. They all can go 4.5-4.7 ghz. I like the z68, because it gives the option to troubleshoot if something happens to graphics card.

    @emroz_2272

    Bhaiya get the Asus P8P67 Pro! You don't need Lucid/Virtu, VRM cooling is not a must, but it's ideal that these components are cooled. Good quality power phases, which are found on the P8P67 Pro is a plus & should add stability when going for high overclocks.

    I've seen many many recommendations for these Sandy processors, & the most recommended board is the Asus P8P67 Pro, neat UEFI bios, good overclocking features, adequate no of PCIe slots, one of the very best boards for these SB processors. It's just like the P5Q Pro which were meant for the LGA775 at that time

    If I were you, I would hold just a bit longer for HD7xxx/GTX6xx series. Your 2500K should hold you for 2-3yrs, which is plenty & paired with those next gen GPUs will set you for a very long time, & you can always pop in an Ivy Bridge later down the road when you are ready for an upgrade & have PCIe 3.0 in the process

    I've seen many many recommendations for these Sandy processors, & the most recommended board is the Asus P8P67 Pro, neat UEFI bios, good overclocking features, adequate no of PCIe slots, one of the very best boards for these SB processors. It's just like the P5Q Pro which were meant for the LGA775 at that time

    If I were you, I would hold just a bit longer for HD7xxx/GTX6xx series. Your 2500K should hold you for 2-3yrs, which is plenty & paired with those next gen GPUs will set you for a very long time, & you can always pop in an Ivy Bridge later down the road when you are ready for an upgrade & have PCIe 3.0 in the process
    unfortunately i have to get it now, no option

    what do you think of the asrock z68 extreme3 gen3, its a bit more expensive than the above boards, but affordable.

    I'll be honest, after this upgrade I will not be upgrading in 3 yrs at least. So was thinking of getting as much power as possible.

    thanks for the suggestion bhaiya, but i have already ordered the asus p8p67 pro+i5 2500k combo, also ordered the evga gtx 580 along with it. If i tried to get a better mobo from asus i would have to compromise with the gpu
