Closed Will this motherboard work with this build? Tags: Asus Build Motherboards Last response: April 4, 2012 6:23 PM in Motherboards Share hilmart March 26, 2012 8:16:16 PM Hi there, I've been putting together a gaming build and the only problem I have left is the motherboard. Will the Asus P8Z68-V Pro GEN3 work with this build ? I am aware that there is no GPU present in it. I'm going to get the GTX 680 when it comes back into stock, I'll be using my current ATI Radeon HD 4850 1GB in the meantime. One last thing. I've been told to get the Z68 chipset, why is that?

Personally I think a P67 is enough for mostly everyone but if you can afford that motherboard I say go ahead | Report abuse Noworldorder Motherboard Authority March 27, 2012 12:59:19 PM Pairing a i7-2600 CPU with a Z68 or P67 chipset is illogical. A i7-2600k is a better choice since both chipsets can be OCd, as can the i7-2600k but not the i7-2600. | Report abuse akxpckwb Motherboard Expert March 28, 2012 7:17:39 AM Noworldorder makes a very good point. The K CPU's are for overclocking so it makes sense in either getting a Z68/P67 chipset or just buy the non K version if you're not going to overclock | Report abuse hilmart April 4, 2012 7:54:04 AM Best answer selected by hilmart. | Report abuse nikorr Motherboard Master April 4, 2012 6:23:25 PM This topic has been closed by Nikorr | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Motherboards>Will this motherboard work with this build?> Related ressources: ForumBuilding my first pc, Will my Motherboard , GPU and cpu work together ForumWill this CPU work with this Motherboard , please help?:) ForumDoes gigabyte ga-78lmt-usb3 motherboard work with 1333Mhz ram without OC\'ing?
