Summary: Good ITX board. The only thing to watch out for is that the Wi-Fi will not work automatically for Linux. I read somewhere that you could do some type of mod, replacing the on-board module but it's best just to buy a Alfa USB Wi-Fi and you're on your way.
Summary: Great motherboard. Small and fits in any smaller case. Lets give cons first 1. "Surround" - have to jump through hoops to get 5.1 surround enabled, even with included drivers. 2.1 is fine out of the box. 2. Front audio is directly under the video card - if you have a PCI-E card (duh) to install, the video card will press down on the front audio (97 and HD) 3.
Summary: I'm pretty happy with the ASUS P8Z77-I Deluxe. It's tiny, but it's a workhorse. Good overclocking on my 3570K (with Cooler Master Seidon 120M). This is paired with 2 WD Black HDDs, DVD drive, GTX 770 and Cooler Master Elite 130 case. Range with the built-in wifi is pretty good. Minus 1 star: The only issue I have is the DRAM slots. After I put everything together and checked it twice, it would not post. The motherboard DRAM LED was on and I could not clear it.
Summary: I was building a low heat compact system to replace my much older loud gaming PC. this mobo paired with a i7-3770k with the stock fan is perfectly silent and crushes any game i can throw at it! the auto-overclocking feature on this motherboard is quit nice if not a little timid... but it will do the job perfectly if you let it! only two DIMMS might have been a challenge, but thankfully I installed some 8GB Crucial Ballisitx DIMMs to meet my memory needs.
Summary: Used this in a Bitfenix Prodigy case. Pros: The layout of the board is nice, the position of the CPU slot gave enough room for a Cooler Master Hyper EVO (although I had to use low profile RAM). Built-in Wifi has better range than I was expecting. Cons: The HD audio connector is right infront of the GPU slot (meaning the graphics card goes over the connection) so I couldn't plug in the extra audio connectors on the side panel of the prodigy case. Not a big deal.
Summary: Pros: tiny and has everything I might want on board. Cons: Wish there was another choice in color of antenna. The white just doesn't go with the black case it is mounted in. I'll probably try spray painting them black. edit 4/22/2013 - Wish Asus had chosen to go with a standard connector for the antenna mounts... as is to use a different antenna you have to buy an adaptor. Accessories: The sata cables that came with it were not great, black with a white tab at the ends.
Summary: I first bought the ASrock version of this board but it arrived defective so I returned it and bought this. I'm not using any of the fancy features of this board such as overclocking so I can't speak to that. However the breadth of ports and features available on such a small board is impressive. This board loses a star because the WiFi module it arrived with was total crap. Even with both the included antennae attached and mounted I barely got connection.
Summary: PROS: Everything! well except whats written below mediocre: included sata cables..could have used 2 more of the black angled sata cables that works great with itx cases rather than the generic red sata cables CONS: ASUS installation disc has a lot of bloatware that hides itself among the legit drivers/utilities..and if you choose to download the software from their site itself, you are forced to install another bloatware/download accelerator before you can download.
