I've noticed that it has a lot of bad reviews on Newegg. However, I know they could just be unlucky DOA receivers. So I would like to know if the reviews are true, or if the board actually is good: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Better buy this ASUS P8Z68-V/GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 is 10$ more but have much better customers reviews http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Another great Asus board is ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z/GEN3 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and have great customers reviews and also 10$ more than that what you choosed.


Funny you recommended the Asus P8Z68-V/GEN3 I just found it and saw its reviews so I am considering that one.

I would tend to agree with either the ASUS P8Z68-V/GEN3 or P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3, but 9/10 the folks' issues are BIOS related. Certainly job #1 on ANY P67 is to update your BIOS and to a degree ditto with the Z68's.

Frankly, I to some degree, hold little currency with NewEgg Noob reviews and a lot of them are totally User Error generated; example anytime I see 2X or 3X+ DOA's from the same 'reviewer' I can easily conclude that the User killed to the MOBO and 9/10 with a faulty/cheap PSU.

I forgot to mention that I've already bought the board. So unfortunately it would be to time consuming to refund it and buy another one. TO anyone that owns the board: I'm having trouble installing 8 GB of ram. Does that have anything to do with the bios not being updated to yet?

The ASUS P8P67 PRO is fine. Start my updating your BIOS to the latest (non-beta) version. Next, post a link to your EXACT RAM Kit(s).

Updating BIOS:
ASUS EZ Flash 2; see -> http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/289507-30-what-flash#...

If it's a single kit then AI Overclock Tuner -> XMP. As above only use the 'Blue' DIMM slots for one kit and make certain they're fully seated.

First, 1.65v RAM shouldn't be used on Sandy Bridge nor especially the up coming Ivy Bridge. Intel suggest long-term it can damage or degrade the CPU...

That said, either AI Overclock Tuner -> XMP <or> AI Overclock Tuner -> Manual, DRAM Frequency -> DDR3-1600, CAS Timings 9-9-9-24-2T (CAS-TRCD-TRP-TRAS-CMD Rate), and DRAM Voltage -> 1.64v, Save and Exit = Yes.

Will setting it to 1.64 volts prevent future issues with the processor?

You set the RAM at 1.5V.

I don't know what that means?!

If you run the RAM at its' Rated Frequency it will be unstable at 1.50v. Use the settings I posted above. Otherwise use Defaults or DDR3-1333 @ 1.50v.

Clearly, the CMX8GX3M2A1600C9 is 1.65v @ DDR3-1600 - period.
