Excellent board. I use this with my gaming rig and play all newest games like bf3, love all the features this board has. The expansion slots are perfectly set up as newer gpu's take up 2 spots and you usaully cant use a x1 slot or something but theres always at least one of each slot type showing even if you have 2 big gpu's. I have an i7 2600k and gtx 570 set up with this board and both run fine, i have overclocked the cpu to 4.5ghz and its so easy with the bios on this board. The look of the board inside the case looks very nice especially the heatsinks. Definitely recommend this board its, i dont see what more you could possibly want!

I've been building systems around MSI, GigaByte, Abit and Asus motherboards for close to 20 years - and this board is the best I've used yet. Great quality components used throughout, excellent cooling and power regulation features included to assist anyone interested in overclocking. The stand-out feature for me is Asus's excellent EFI BIOS implementation - which actually makes the config of the BIOS settings a real point and click pleasure that no longer looks like you're back in the MSDOS era!

Tonnes of SATA connectivity (8 internal, if memory serves me correctly + 1 external eSata) provide a good basis for a very expandable workstation pc - whilst internal Bluetooth also offers some interesting functionality not often seen in mainstream motherboards (works fine with my iPhone 4 and Nokia work phone for handsfree calling and wireless music streaming).

The board seems very stable And ASUS have already released an enhanced BIOS supporting additional CPUs - not bad for such a recent board.

Just to be clear, I'm no expert on motherboards - this was my first build.

Pros
Came well-packaged
Clear instruction manual
Laden with ports - 10 USB ports (including the module for the additional 2 USB 3.0s), hdmi, VGA etc. etc.
Ivy bridge compatible
Onboard Bluetooth
Quite an attractive board, if that's important to you
All those blue heatsinks ensure it runs cool
Excellent mouse driven graphical bios.
Comes with some useful utilities, e.g. Asus Fan Xpert, which allows you to control fan speed profiles etc.
So far, it has been stable.
Easy, one-click overclocking...

Cons
...although t'interweb suggests that this leads to overly-high voltages, so you're better off doing the settings manually
Not cheap, though it may now come down in price with the release of Z77.
Bluetooth has a range of about 1.5 feet, which is really poor. A quick Google shows this is a known issue.
The PCB is a bit flimsy. Careful how hard you push that RAM in...
The port panel thingy that you fit into the back of the case seems to be made of tinfoil
The drivers page on the Asus website was a confusing mess, and one of the most up-to-date drivers refused to install on the board. The one on the bundled disk works fine though.

Overall, it's a decent board, but it's a pity that Asus haven't ironed out the flaws by now

Recently my PC blew up (literally caught fire and tripped all of the power socket circuit breakers in my house) when my 650W PSU popped and the dust & carpet fluff in the surrounding areas of the PC case caught fire, in the middle of a battle in MW3! My Asus P7H67 motherboard got fried too, so I decided upon the Asus P8Z68-V Pro/Gen3 after reading numerous tech blog sites and reviews. I can tell you it does not disappoint, it's a great motherboard, plus a big step up from my previous one. Now my 1600MHz DDR3 4x4GB DIMM's appear to be running at 1632MHz and not 1333MHz as they were under my old system.

I opted for the "OC Tuner" one-touch auto-overclocking feature when first running setup BIOS and guess what; it's fantastic - my i7 2600K chip is running at up to 4.43GHz with CPU-Voltages well below 1.35V (please note: Intel recommends max CPU voltage of 1.35V for indefinite life, and up to 1.40V for safe overclocking, whilst 1.45V to 1.50V will reduce the life expectancy of your processor based on empirical studies by Intel themselves - so you've been warned). I may opt to manually OC my chip later, but for now using Adobe PS, AE and PPro as well as playing MW3 and the new CoD Ghosts with max Video settings (using my GTX 570 graphics card + "new" Corsair AX760 professional PSU) is going swimmingly. No complaints thus far.

Motherboards are really important and I skimped before on cost and paid the price. Fortunately, these older MOBO's (this model P8Z68-v pro is now 2-years old) have come down a lot in price, retailing now at approximately half of what they were originally selling for in November 2011, hence they now represent terrific 'value for money'.

Hiya Folks,

Just a quick note to those of you purchasing this mobo for use with an Ivy Bridge Processor.

It turns out that some versions of this board (possibly ones that were manufactured earlier) have an older version of the bios that doesn't support Ivy Bridge Processors out of the box. The solution to this is either to use a Sandy Bridge or other supported CPU to install a newer bios version or to flash the bios by usb to a newer version without a CPU installed.

Please let me add that this mobo is fantastic once the correct bios version is installed, I had no problems setting up windows and overclockin and have been running it for a good month or so.

The mobo is packed with useful features and the bios is very simple and easy to use with the mouse user interface.

With the somewhat frustrating issues aside, I'd give this mobo 10/10!!

Hopefully this review will help you guys if you have any probs but lets hope they ship them with newer bios versions from now on lol.

Cheers.
