Mine has had a 3770k since I got my Z68 FTW back in 2012. I've gone through a few video cards (8800 Ultras, a 660 Ti, 980 Ti) and now my RTX 2070.  Alas, I finally have a video card no longer showing being put to it's full use, and I am now CPU bottle necked.  I'm getting about 60-70% GPU utilization.
It's gonna be a sad day to finally see the Z68 go.  It has been nothing but a great experience, and these forums have been great when I was initially overclocking it.

    It had a good long life of seven years. Luckily it lived long enough to see a CPU war between Intel and AMD which helps a lot with finding great deals to upgrade to.

    Still using my 2600k on my P67 FTW. Still chugging but I think its time to modernize as im maxing out pretty frequently now with newer games. Might get me a Ryzen
