    Asus P8Z68 Deluxe Compatibility with Windows 10


    I've been running Windows 7 on a P8Z68 Deluxe with an i7 2600k cpu for some years. Getting old but it performs well.
    It looks like this combo may not be compatible with Windows 10. I'd appreciate any comments.

    There use to be a compatibility check 10 performed before install, but I can't remember if this still happens. If it still does I probably never noticed because my system is good.

    That said, I did a Win 10 build for a family member a few years back on an Intel 975 BX board and an Intel Q6600 processor....

    • CORE 2 QUAD Q6600 SYSTEM
    • ANTEC PERFORMANCE SERIES II COMPUTER CASE SX1040BLL
    • INTEL MOTHERBOARD BOXD975XBX2KR
    • INTEL PROCESSOR CORE 2 QUAD Q6600
    • ZALMAN CPU COOLER CNPS9500 AT
    • CORSAIR DDR2 DOMINATOR MEMORY (4GIG) TWIN2X4096-8500C5DF
    • ATI (XFX) HD 4890 VIDEO CARD - PCI-E (1 GHz)
    • WESTERN DIGITAL SATA HD - CAVIAR BLACK (500 GIG)
    • LITEON DVD DRIVE (SATA)
    • ANTEC ATX 550W POWER SUPPLY NEO HE 550

    and last I checked, it was still running good to this day. My family member is in another state. Anyway when I built the system I ran into no big issues, so...

    Anyway seeing your system is getting long in the tooth, I'd probably be looking to upgrade. 10 would definitely perform better on new tech. The system I built for my family member was just some old parts lying around and I wanted to see what 10 would do on it. Today I wouldn't use such an old build, especially with the latest iteration of 10 (Creator).

    Like everything else, it depends or software & hardware installed, plus availability of drivers.

    That's my answer. Good luck.

    Why not make a backup image of your Windows 7 (and you should have a backup anyway) and just try it?

    The Asus support page lists Win 10 X64. Other than Realtek audio drivers, none are offered. That suggests that most of the necessary drivers are included in the Windows installation or through Windows Update.

    I think it should work just fine.

    Thanks bobkn. I saw that on the Asus site and I guess the other drivers are the unknown.
    I have many Windows 7 system images but wouldn't want to buy an OEM non SLP license just to try it out - but I may need to.
    As far as I can see the i7 2600k specs close to the i5 7600k . Both have 4 cores but the 2600k has 8 threads so it's still a good cpu.

    Mine is a p8p67 with a 2500k, and aside from recent other drivers....i.e Creative Sb ones, the pc functions great on windows 10. You wont have any problems.

    I have no personal knowledge of this, but it's possible that you can still do a free upgrade from 7 to 10.
