Pros
nice color scheme, good options
Cons
no video out to take advantage of built-in video in cpu
Summary
solid caps, lots of ferrite chokes, chip cooling, lots of connections, hdmi out on revised Z68XP-UD4-B3 model. For the right price, add a video card.

Pros
-Looks awesome
-Got it for a decent price it was 179.99 with 40 dollar rebate
Cons
-No onboard GPU
-Top USB doesn't line up with the I/O
Summary
This is an alright board, nothing really special. Got it because it was on for a good price.

I'm not sure why the top usb doesn't line up with the shield plate.
Maybe I got a bad shield plate I dunno.

Overall I would only get it if it is on sale.

Pros
Esthetics, price.
Cons
No GPU, no VIRTU.
Summary
Great board at a great price, however it was pretty dumb to not put the onboard gpu on a Z68 board. But for people who don't need it this is a great bang for the buck.

Pros
Intel Smart Response Technology
Dual BIOS
USB 3.0
eSATA ports
Lots of USB back panel ports
Cons
None
Summary
This is a solid board with great features. The back panel is loaded with USB ports, both 2.0 and 3.0. It also has 2 eSATA ports that don't come on cheaper boards. The Intel Smart Response Technology feature that comes on these Z68 boards was a major reason for my upgrading at this time. Just add a cheap 60GB SSD and you've got a nice boost in performance of your larger HDD. I used a refurb Corsair SSD and a WD Black combo. The board posted first try and set up was easy with a 2500K and 8 GB of GSkill 1600 memory. Lots of overclocking features in the BIOS for those inclined. The black board would look nice behind a case window.

Pros
Got this for super cheap -- $115 + taxes!!!
Cons
there are better mobos if you pay full price
Summary
I got the price on this brought down from $219 to $115 before taxes; an absolute steal at that rate! There are probably better ones out there if you're paying closer to the $200 mark, though.

Pros
Stable, Athestically pleasing, easy to overclock, layout is good
Cons
does not allow access to CPU's video card, no sleep indicated light, poor software, still a keyboard based BIOS
Summary
The Z68X-UD4-B3 is a good motherboard although I don't think it is one of the best in class. Compared to competitors I think it lacks features. I bought because it came in a bundle, and Gigabytes good name.

First off despite being Z68 motherboard it does not allow access to the Intel IGP.

Gigabytes softwares works but is not great, especially the auto updates(doesn't work for me at all).

The BIOS is still text based, though you can change many things from an App inside windows.

Overall this is a good basic motherboard, not alot of extra features. It has be reliable so far. The SSD Caching features works, though I'm not sure how much of a performance improvement I am really getting.

Pros
nice color
solid bios
Cons
no lucid virtu
Summary
It has been a good board so far. My only gripe with it is the lack of the lucid virtu chip. I did not know this board does not have this until I tried to transcode a file.

Comment: Sporting a new color scheme for Gigabyte, the P67A-UD4-B3 arrived on our doorstep directly from Taiwan, ready for punishment. Gone is the traditional blue and white colours, and here to replace them is a solid black board, clearly an indicator that the engineers at Gigabyte have been paying attentio
