  • Gigabyte z68 Ud4 or ud4 -b3 or ud3p.

    Hi all.

    Just about ready to upgrade my full system.

    I am currently in a dilema for which mobo to buy.

    I have narrowed my choices down to 3. Starting out I was looking into an asus z68 deluxe but decided the extra cash just isn't worth it and since I have had no problems from my beloved gaep45 ud3p rev 1.1 I shall once again delve into the world of gigabyte.

    I am aware that the z68 chipset supports onboard video but naturally will have a dedicated video card.

    My question here is what would suit my needs better? and in this order they are.
    1. Need to have solid overclocking ability. Such as the 16 phase power design of the Z68 UD4-B3
    2. Completely Compatle with IVY BRIDGE (I can't recall where but have read not all z68 chipset configurations will work!)
    3. Prefer to have compatible PCI-E 3.0 gen support ( the real support )

    When the price difference is nominal what would be the better buy?
