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. Maybe their problems reside in the fact that this was one of the first decent mobos for an ITX build.
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 the two aftermarket CPU Heat sinks interfered with the mSATA drive.
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. I had to test every component in the system (I tested CPU, PSU,GPU, RAM) to find it but it turned out being the motherboard.
Summary: I have a full-sized rig in my living room and wanted a smaller one for the bedroom. I needed a mini-PCIE slot on the motherboard for wifi and a Z77 chipset to take full advantage of the i7-3770K I got so cheap at MC. The highly rated Asus Deluxe mITX board was out of my price range so I was left to choose between Gigabyte and ASROCK. I had been at the same decision point for my full-sized rig and I first went with Gigabyte since I hadn't heard of ASROCK at that time.
Summary: I purchased this to replace a EVGA Z77 Stinger and I definitely like the ASROCK Z77E board better (it's what I wanted in the first place, but the local retailer was out of stock, which is why I tried the EVGA board). Compared to the EGVA board, this has mSATA (the EVGA has mPCIe if you want to add on a wifi module) and includes the mPCIe wifi module.
Summary: Installed in a BitFenix Prodigy case. This mobo is fast, fast, fast! Tons of features. I love the XFast USB feature. It speeds up the rate at which you can copy files. XFast LAN works okay. Not super great, but I'm sure it helps some. Plenty of USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports. Even made sure the PCI Express slot was 3.0 revision. Buy this motherboard. I am thrilled with how wonderful it has performed for me. I have owned and used this motherboard for over a month now.
Summary: It's got everything an HTPC or compact gaming rigs needs! I used this in a build as an alternative to the Zotac Z77 mini-ITX board and found it to be a suitable replacement. The EFI BIOS is very useful and it's awesome to be able to update the BIOS at the push of a button automatically, as long as the network is connected.
Summary: The motherboard works fine for most things except LLC. The LLC is stuck on Level 1 (100% compensation and more for vDroop) if you use fixed voltage ; with offset voltage the LLC works fine. If you're not overclocking, the motherboard is great. That's the only problem!!
