Summary: A really great, small, motherboard. It has everything you need without unnecessary extras. I really was surprised with the quality of the motherboard. So many small boards are dead on arrival, but this one booted right up. I know, low expectations!
Summary: The ASUS p8z77-i deluxe/wd was great. It has a lot of features that can be extremely useful. I read a many reviews about this model before I bought it, but was still surprised that it wast Wi-Fi Go enabled. I tried a lot of things to try an install the Wi-Fi Go app on the ASUS Suite II. It was what sold me when doing my research. I didn't take a star because it was my misstate for overlooking it.
Summary: This little board is great, well laid out, and works well. The vrm uses two of the mounting points, but included fine and coarse threaded screws ensure you can still mount it in your case no problems. Install took about 5 minutes and 4 screws.
Summary: What a great motherboard! It's got everything I need and more. It's almost perfect in both form factor and available features. This mobo will also accommodate a large video card (Nvidia 750-TI in my case). It is excellent like I expect from Asus and this motherboard did not disappoint.
Summary: I was very surprised at how small this motherboard actually is. It is small, but does not sacrifice performance for being small. It sure packs a punch. The DIGI-VRM voltage regulator bank is extremely awesome for overclocking.
Summary: Got it a couple days after I ordered it. Packaging was the same as any other motherboard, just an anti-static bag and some cardboard holding it in place. Install process was same as any other motherboard, except that the motherboard screws that hold it to the tray on the side with the VRM are already in and I think they hold the VRM in place, so be careful when removing and putting them back in.
Summary: I use the P8Z77I with an Intel I7 3770K for a compact workstation that I use for statistical analysis, optimization, and visualization of my stock portfolio. The entire rig fits in a tiny Silverstone HTPC case and is extremely quiet with Noctua fans. Easily overclocks with the ASUS bios. I'd totally recommend this board and I can't wait to try the 4770K in the ASUS Maximus VI Impact.
