Summary: This board runs my overclocked 2500k @ 4.6 quite nicely. Even if the Antec Kuhler h2o 620 backplate had to take some modification to fit on. This board from my experience also runs better under Linux than Windows, and for those wanting to use Linux, Linux mint 13 will work out of the box (assuming...
Pros: -Overclocks Well with Sandy bridge processors -Runs Linux incredibly well! -built-in wireless -built-in audio is decent -mSata under board
Cons: -hard to install some AIO W/Cing units, minor con -Will BSoD under windows until drivers are installed -has sleeping issues -no buzzer -the gold on it could bother some, but for practical builders it doesn't matter.
Summary: The Z77E ITX is a pretty good motherboard for enthusiasts. I dont overclock much so I cant really compare it so much to the Asus p8Z77i or ROG Impact boards, but it offers many of the same features at a lower price.
Summary: Well I gave 5 starts because this mobo did everything it was supposed to, it works, can overclock both cup and ram, no problems with drivers, etc. However, there are some drawbacks which I noticed after a few months.
Summary: Built my first Mini-ITX used the AS Rock LGA1155 DDR3 SATA3 USB3.0 A GbE Mini-ITX Motherboard Z77E-ITX. It was a Win7 64bit Machine. I have no issues with this MB. Only complaint is I wish the mSATA port was in front of board, had to use the stock Intel CPU Heat sink because the backside bracket of...
Summary: I am not sure how this mobo will fair long term because the first one was functionally DOA. The first would shut off completely if any amount of load was placed on the CPU, this is with the factory specifications on memory and cpu and tested with a Xeon 1230v2 and a i5 2550k, so I had to return it.
Summary: As of 20 minutes ago I just bought a Gigabyte.
Pros: Supports Wake on Lan Good Fan control
Cons: Died after 8 months. First and last time I am buying Asrock. My first choice was Asus then Gigabyte. But I needed specific features only this board has. Big mistake, it didn't last at all. Worse thing you spend so much time troubleshooting. It just not worth it. Had some weird reboot/reset issues...
