Excerpt: The P8Z77X-I Deluxe is ASUS' high-powered answer to the small form factor crowd. Through some unique design decisions and an upright daughter-board, ASUS was able to cram a full 10-phase digital power delivery system into this board without sacrificing any other integrated components. It's nice to see a manufacturer step up and design a mini-ITX board in the same vein as its full-sized counterpart.
Summary: The P8Z77-I Deluxe is one heck of a motherboard, and not just when compared to the other Mini-ITX options. This puppy is equipped to run with the big dogs. It also overclocks like a boss. Apart from a few PCI Express and memory slots, you really aren't losing out on much when compared to full-sized desktop models. In some respects, the Deluxe actually delivers more features and functionality than enthusiast-oriented ATX models from other manufacturers.
Conclusion: If you want to build a high performance mini ITX system, this is definitely the board for you. ASUS has squeezed more features and functionality into this board than I would have believed possible, and the performance of the board showed that nothing was sacrificed (performance-wise) to do so. The performance of this board is exceptional, fully the equal of ASUS' larger Z77 motherboards.
Pros: Baddest mini ITX motherboard out there., DIGI, VRM and TurboV Evo support ATX-level overclocks., Most of the features and functionality of much larger motherboards., WiFi, Bluetooth built in
Cons: DIGI+ VRM for ITX riser board blocks some coolers., Expensive enthusiast-level product.
Excerpt: The other day we got the opportunity to look at the ASRock Z77E-ITX and we found ourselves extremely impressed with what we could get out of a Mini-ITX based motherboard in terms of out of the box performance and overclocking performance.
Excerpt: Certainly small form factor motherboards don’t ordinarily get too much attention here at HardOCP. That changed in a "big" way when we were introduced to the ASUS Mini-ITX P8Z77-I Deluxe. The P8Z77-I Deluxe did more than just impress, it proves that not all enthusiast rigs needed to be hulking towers of steel and aluminum.

Excerpt: Времена, когда материнские платы формата microATX были атрибутом бюджетных или офисных системных блоков, безвозвратно прошли. На сегодняшний день практически все вендоры имеют в своем ассортименте компактные продукты, функциональность и запас прочности которых ни в чем не уступают полноразмерным моделям среднего и высокого уровня. В таких системных платах используются старшие модификации чипсетов, усиленные узлы электропитания и мощные системы охлаждения.
