ASRock Z68 Extreme 4 Gen 3 vs. ASRock P67 Extreme 6
Okay, I am getting a new mobo, and I don't know what one is better for the money. I have heard great things about both of these boards, but I dont know if the Extreme 6 is better because is it P67 not Z68. What would be the best choice?

Z68 is newer and offers features such as Intel Rapid Storage Technology, the ability to overclock AND use the onboard GPU of CPU.
Personally, I wouldnt be upgrading to anything with what you have? Whats the point?Should I R0 my SSD? / Sandy/Ivybridge Overclocking Guide / Haswell Overclocking Guide / AMD Overclocking Guide / Power Supply Guide

I believe EarthDog meant Z68 has SRT over the P67, not RST. Both P67 and Z68 have RST.
SRT = Smart Response Technology (SSD Caching for a HDD)
RST = Rapid Storage Technology (Intel's RAID, previously on the ICH10R)
If you don't want the SSD caching or have the ability to use the iGPU, then there's not really a difference.i7 4770K | ASRock Z87M OC Formula | 2x8GB Crucial Ballistix DDR3-1600 | EVGA GTX980 Ti | ASUS Xonar Essence STX | 256GB OCZ Vertex 4 | SeaSonic X750

Intel was a jerk to use such confusing names as SRT and RST.Intel i5-2500K @ 4.4GHz 1.335, MSI APS, no LLC, PLL enabled, speed step on, all C-states enabled

Hi all, i'm also interested in this thread? does anyone know if there infact IS a difference in performance?
Because the difference in price is around $100?? and the P67 has an extra heatsink??
