Today I have for you an excellent review of the motherboard I prefer for the mid range build. You will see me constantly say that I prefer Asus motherboards, and there is a reason for this. They are not only well built, but they also consistently score high on benchmark tests.
This review is a look at the Gen 3 version of the P8Z68-V Pro, which supports PCIe 3.0. There aren’t any PCIe 3.0 tests yet of course, but if your intention is to build a Sandy Bridge Z68 system, then this is the motherboard to go with.
Asus P8Z68-V Pro Gen 3 Motherboard Review
This motherboard features UASP mode, which stands for USB Attached SCSI Protocol. Asus say “With USB 3.0 Boost technology, a USB device’s transmission speed is significantly increased up to 170%, adding to an already impressive fast USB 3.0 transfer speed. ASUS software automatically accelerates data speeds for compatible USB 3.0 peripherals without the need for any user interaction.”
