Z68 unlike the Asus P8Z68 DELUXE Disk and like the H6x PCH allows the use of and over-clock the graphics core within the second generation core processors. Like the P67 and unlike the H6x, it can also over-clock the processor core or more correctly over-clock memory. Thus Z68 is a sum of P67 and H6x. Intel added a couple of extras to make Z68 relevant.

  • Introduction

A cursory glance at the diagram will reveal that Z68 allows for the use of onboard graphics dye. Apart from this, there is nothing new here. It Asus P8Z68 DELUXE Disk basically an H6x and P67 hybrid. More correctly, it is a H67 which allows processor core over-clocking. The deluxe comes in a flip top box with a transparent window below the flip while the pro gets the bog standard box. Asus has never been the one to hold back on accessories. Both models come with tons of extras. The Deluxe version has the all-important front USB 3.


If your case does not have front USB 3. If one were to take heat sink assembly and all labels off it would be difficult to tell Asus P8Z68 DELUXE Disk two boards apart while looking from the top. In fact the two boards look a lot like the P8PPro model from Asus. I guess it saves cost to use the same basic design, but it does get monotonous and boring really quickly. There is enough clearance around the socket area for the largest of heat sinks. Installing a Thermalright HR was really easy though it was a tad difficult to tighten the retention mechanism screw that is surrounded by heatsinks on two sides. The Deluxe model features an extra heatsink over the power circuitry which is connected via heat pipe to the main heat sink behind the socket.

Both also feature 4 Asus P8Z68 DELUXE Disk design for the integrated GPU.

The LGA socket comes from an unknown manufacturer and is pretty much a standard affair. The slots have only one tab that needs to be moved to secure and release the memory sticks. The far end of the slot, closest to the graphics card has fixed support for the memory stick. This makes changing memory sticks without removing the graphics card very, very easy. Activating mem OK allows the board to try and boot with the most stable memory configuration which might not be the fastest. During testing Asus P8Z68 DELUXE Disk found this Asus P8Z68 DELUXE Disk be valuable as we had an odd herring or two when it comes to memory.

The boards feature 8 right angled SATA ports. The Z68 chipset lies under a low profile heatsink which should not interfere with multi-slot GPUs. Notice the slightly different design of the heat sinks on the two boards the deluxe on the top and pro on the bottom.


The internal USB 3. In-between the two is the EFI chip. The expansion slots on the two boards are laid out identically. Notice the PLX chip next to the blue x16 slot? This provides additional PCI-e lanes on the deluxe so that the third x16 slot black has dedicated x4 bandwidth. The user can either choose to use the black x16 slot or the two x1slots together with internal USB 3. The left edge of the board features the front panel connector area together with the USB 2. The Asus P8Z68 DELUXE Disk IO area has a different layout on the two boards. Notice the lack of any video outputs what so ever! That implies that an external graphics card is required even if the user is only interested in using the integrated GPU.

This will incur overhead penalties. But in all honesty anyone who intends on buying this board will end up getting a discrete GPU. Both boards also feature the BT2Go Bluetooth dongle. Both boards are powered by a Realtek ALC Asus P8Z68 DELUXE Disk audio codecs.

There are subtle differences between the back of two boards. The deluxe features support for its extra heat sink which the pro lacks. Both board feature multitude of Asus P8Z68 DELUXE Disk connectors located strategically over the board.

Only the fan connector is of the 4pin PWM variety, the rest are your regular 3 pin types. Both boards have identicallayouts. This is not necessarily a bad thing as the Asus design is easy to work with.
