The EVGA Z68 FTW

Recommended Posts

I'd like you to meet the EVGA Z68 FTW, the basis for my new build :D/>

The reason I wanted the Z68 is basically I'm running a 2600K which will hit 5.2GHz with little effort and see no reason whatsoever to upgrade to a 3770K; my 2600K batters a 3770K whilst producing less heat and owing to the memory controller cap of the 2600K going for the Z77 would yield no actual benefit other than a couple of extra SATA 3 ports.

Anyways back to the board (bare in mind THIS board is my dream board) and never having owned an EVGA board...

All I can say is I'M IN LOVE!!! B) 

It's an absolute beast!!! :wub:

Bios switch, 90 degree 24 pin, 6x 16x pci.......Your excitement over this board is contagious, Paul. I'm seriously considering purchasing one, and I've got 48 hours before the new year.....Hmmmm

edit, discontinued?! :(/> hopefully they restock them

You've so got to get one of these

The feature set and build quality of this board is absolutely superb Bill

For example In the picture below (from left to right) you see the reset, power and the clear CMOS buttons; the switch is the BIOS select. With the FTW you get not just one or even two, you actually get three BIOS's.

Screw one up, then go for the second; alternatively save a performance BIOS and a standard BIOS.

Whatever your preference  B)

    There's a thing here. Somehow it moved to the top of the page, but I didn't do it. No, really! But still, Cheaps is likely to blame...
