  1. What country are we shopping in so we know what the currency is.

    ASUS P8Z68-V LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

    ASRock Z68 EXTREME4 GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

    GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard


    COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO RR-212E-20PK-R2 Continuous Direct Contact 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler Compatible with latest Intel 2011/1366/1155 and AMD FM1/AM3+
  2. SO WHICH IS TOP AMONG THESE THREE MOBOS N WILL 212 FIT IN CM ELITE 431 PLUS N WONT COVER PCIE SLOT?
  3. Typing in caps is not allowed here because it's used by people to mean shouting and you've come here for help and out responses are to help you in what you need.
    I gave you three motherboards for you to look at and consider , your the one buying the MB so it's your decision.
    So if you want help here please do not continue to type in caps.
    The Asus board is probably the better of the three but the reason I listed those three is because they are fro different manufacturers and have similar spec's for around the same price. So that if you had a preference of a certian brand you would be able to choose that brand.
    The hyper 212 evo will fit in your CM case and will not cover a pci-e slot.
  4. All three of those will fit in the CM Elite 431 Plus.

    I think the ASRock Z68 Extreme4 is the best of the three.

    The Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus (Model RR-B10-212P-G1) CPU cooler will also fit.
  5. kk thnx n sorry for typing in caps bro and all these r suitable for overclocking
  6. ah p8p67 isnt worthbuy? for overclocking
  7. The ASUS P8P67 is discontinued but if you can get one it is a good overclocker.
  8. kk thnx but i heard some bad things abt asus z68
  9. I think that the ASUS P8P67 motherboards had a worse quality control problem than the ASUS P8Z68 motherboards.
  10. Best answer
    It may be but when overclocking you also want to have good video also and the Z-68 boards are the best for both so that's why theu are recomended more.
    People who want to overclock generally do it for gaming purposes and with gaming the most important part is the video card so you want to be able to have both the cpu and video card either overclocked or in SLI/Crossfire.
