Hi folks,

I am RMA'ing my p8p67 mobo (1155) as it is a B2 and I have the dreaded sata controller bug. I want to replace it with a better motherboard which will be better in everyway if possible, I am interested in Overclocking (in the future). and would have a budget of up to £200. I have 2 x SSd drives so it would need to be good for that too.

please can you recommend a better replacement as I am SOOOoo out of touch with motherboards and looking at the ocuk range I don't understand the different 1155 chipsets.


thanks for any help/advice :)

EDIT* used primarily for gaming, not really bothered about anything else!

It will usually either say 'Gen3' or 'G3' in the title, for example you'll get an Asus P8Z68-V PRO and an Asus P8Z68-V PRO /Gen3.

I might be wrong but I think Gen3 is Z68 only at the moment, I don't recall seeing any P67 Gen3 boards.
