Top Board

I've built two systems with these boards, no problems. Rock solid drivers and usual Asus build quality.

This board just works as advertised no issues.

Alastair Wright 2011-12-09

Do you really need a graphics card?

I used this as the basis for a system used for desk top publishing. The Z68 chipset is great for this by providing for both overclocking and a DVI graphics output.

I fitted it with 8Gig of memory, a 2500K CPU and no graphics card. Even without overclocking it flies through everything that I throw at it.

There is no need to add to the on-board graphics in order to have a system that does everything that InDesign and Photoshop could require at speed.

Nice introduction to Z68

Usual Asus quality. The new EFI BIOS is quick and easy to use. Advanced mode is good and has nice options in there. Quick boot. Advanced power saving features. USB3 charging facilities and all the latest tech.

The board has great build quality as you would expect, nice easy setup. Only thing I would say is that you only get sent 2 x SATA cables which is a bit of a stinge.

It has enough overclocking options to perform a significant overclock and has some great control on this board.

I have used this for i3 and i5 builds with no issues. i5 will clock high with no issues.
