Asus P8Z68-V Pro Gen 3 Motherboard Review

Rating: 9.0.

When it comes to creating a quality motherboard very few manufacturers can match ASUS in regards to build quality, bios stability and overclocking capabilities. Today we are looking at their latest Asus P8Z68-V Pro Gen 3 Motherboard, based around the Z68 platform with full support for Quad SLI and Quad Crossfire graphics.

This motherboard features UASP mode, which stands for USB Attached SCSI Protocol. Asus say “With USB 3.0 Boost technology, a USB device’s transmission speed is significantly increased up to 170%, adding to an already impressive fast USB 3.0 transfer speed. ASUS software automatically accelerates data speeds for compatible USB 3.0 peripherals without the need for any user interaction.”

The board also has Dual Intelligent Processors with DIGI+ VRM support. As with many of the higher end ASUS motherboards it has 12 phase power for the processor and 4 phase power for iGPU. Today we plan on testing the board in an overclocked state, after all many people buying this board will be doing the very same thing.

How does the P8Z68-V Pro Gen 3 Motherboard handle in an automated overclocked state? If you aren’t a bios expert is there an ‘easy one switch’ setting to improve performance significantly?

    I went with MSI last time, cant say its been a bad buy, but i wish id gotten one of the new UEFI products. maybe end of year ill upgrade.

    Well im maybe the only person who thinks this, but they make far too many boards in any given range. I dont know why they just dont stick to 3 boards in every platform.


    Look at the Z68 range right now, must be 30 boards available. very confusing.

    As an owned of this mobo i can vouch for its brilliant performance and bios. I have no experience in overclocking but using the auto tuning feature paired with a 2500k i have achieved 4.630gz though i am using the Corsair Hydro H60 cooler. The temperatures while gaming are amazingly low. The weird thing is that the mobo reaches about 28 degrees Celsius and the cpu around 26.

    As this is the first rig i have ever built i’m glad i didnt opt for any other mobo within that price range.

    Just built a new computer with this motherboard. So far no problems. Works great. The Intel SRT technology is great.
