    Default Beware Before buying ASUS P8Z68-V

    Yesterday I bought the ASUS P8Z68-V from Binary Logic @17k. I've tested 2 ASUS P8Z68-Vs & in both of them, when I enable SLI from Nvidia Forceware (Tried older versions too) The screen switches to the lowest resolution & Forceware hangs. Restarting the PC results in either hang at boot screen or BSOD. Only way to boot into OS was to boot into safe-mode & uninstall the driver. The things I tried & failed was :
    3 times re-install OS
    Older Drivers
    Bios Update
    Disable iGPU
    Restore BIOS to defualts
    Testing 2 Leadtek 550 Ti in SLI.
    All went in vain. Binary gave me a Gigabyte Z68 D2H & in that mobo SLI works easily. But that was too low-end for me so i went for MSI Z68A-GD65 B3 which I had to add .5k.
    I won't say its a bad mobo but buying a mobo worth 17k & having faulty SLI is 中中ing annoying. In the P8Z68-V Crossfire works according to @k1ngdom but SLI doesn't. Most probably the lot in BD is faulty or they will release a new bios with the fix.

    What Happend to my sabertooth could have happend to any board but this is too much. I used to trust ASUS now i trust MSI , Gigabyte much more. Also The P8Z68-V used to take alot of time to boot compared to the GD65.

    P67 is buggy not Z68.
    Anyways SLI runs flawlessly on the msi board.
    About the power connector i guess thats not the issue but my psu might be the issue.

    But Red Devil bro faced the same problem with the same motherboard as you did, both of your PSU's can't be faulty right? And like you said, SLI is working flawlessly for you on your MSI motherboard, so it's probably the board which was the culprit.

    well actually let me explain....
    1st of all I would say I dont live in BD left BD last year I live in Malaysia but I have some knowledge of current BD shop as per I can say Global is now selling faulty boards well let me explain.....
    Global takes boards from Malaysia & Singapore...Here is a mall named Lowyatt the biggest Gaming accessories mall in Malaysia here some shop buy Replaced or changed boards these boards are a bit faulty & cheap & BD dealers(SMART & Global mainly)takes these boards in half price n sells in BD at the market Price.....if u Buy Asus P67 Sabertooth this board comes with 5years of warranty & long warranty means the company is sure of their product but this is only on P67 board though in BD they wont give u 5years long warranty....Today I bought a Cooler Master 850watt & I replaced my old TT 750watt so the shop gonna send it to any BD dealer isn't it?
    well wrote long of a story.....Now the summary is if u can manage a board from out side of BD then my honest advise go for P67 platform it runs fast at everything Z68 boards are a bit crappy when u put load of +2 6GBs & +2 3GBs.......

    Will get an SSD soon & @k1ngdom uses an ssd with his z68 & he has no problems. So its ur problem either the SSD or the specific board.
