Default Need some help on best mobo..... p67? vs z68

Hey guys so ok i bought new parts for my new build a couple days ago. and i got the asus p8z68-v pro motherboard the board had a problem it shut off by itself after 10 seconds of being on then starts itself back up then loads windows so i returned it to microcenter and i could exchange it for a different motherboard soooooo i was looking at this one GIGABYTE GA-Z68XP-UD3P but they didnt have any in stock...Sooo i bought somthing thats a similar price and if i decide i dont want it i sell it on amazon and its this item the ASUS SABERTOOTH P67 rev 3.0. So these are my options tell me which is the best one. And also Can someone please describe whats the difference and the benefits between a z68 board a p67. So shld i keep the asus sabertooh or sell it and get the asus sabertooth? i want a board that WONT give me any trouble at all and that will be great for my system build. Thats why i iwanted the gigabyte cuz it had the best reviews.

also how is this Mobo evga. It looks pretty good

The Z68 supports Quicksync and Smart Response Technology (aka SSD caching).I don't have a use for either but thats me, you may want these features.

I recommend the P8P67 Deluxe (what I'm using) or the P8Z68 Deluxe.

The Z68 chipset (along with H67) allows you to use the integrated GPU on the 1155 CPUs, whereas P67 doesn't.

I have the Deluxe too, it's cool Offers various stuff over the Pro, like a thicker PCB, better integrated audio, larger heatsinks, and pointlessly extreme OCing support.

From what I've learned on these forums, Gigabyte have terrible returns and warranty policies.

Every manufacturer has defective boards.

Basing a purchasing decision on Newegg reviews is foolhardy. Some people will write a review for every product they purchase. Some people will only write a review if their dissatisfied. Some people never write a review. Some people will review a product they don't even own. And from my observations a large number of complaints could be avoided if the purchaser knew what they were doing, even though they always claim to have high technical experience.

The best place to actually see all the various problems is through the Manufacturers Forum. What I find disturbing is that Gigabyte USA does not have a forum. You can only file a support request because they must not want their actual defect rate to be known. Gigabyte UK does have a forum and I see plenty of users having various issues there.

Official GIGABYTE Forum - Index

Gigabyte also has a terrible warranty/rma policy

Gigabyte is extremely deceptive in my opinion, all manufacturers have defective items that slip past quality control, at least Asus and most of the other manufacturers are up front about it.
