Conclusion: Bottom line: As we have mentioned in previous Z77 chipset-based board reviews, you need to be using the ASUS-integrated features for the asking price to make sense. As it is, given what ASUS has implemented, we'd like to see the price come down to the right side of £150 before dishing out recommendations.
Conclusion: At $199, however, the Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H is our favorite Z77 board so far. It's a slightly better choice if you don't need the wireless features of this Asus board, and you have older hardware you want to carry over from a previous PC.
Pros: Excellent single-click overclocking performance, Well-designed graphical BIOS, Fan-control software excellent for creating a quiet system, Supports super-fast memory speeds
Cons: Pricey, No PCI slots or IEEE 1394a connector for legacy hardware
