Pros: The best thing about this board is the placement of the USB 3.0 plug. Unlike other boards, this plug does not sit directly butted up against the 24-pin plug. This makes wire routing and management a lot cleaner.
Cons: This board does not come with as many fan plugs as most other boards. The max amount of fans you can run off the board are 3 (1 CPU and only 2 case fans)
Summary: The board could use an ieee 1394 internal connector so I can plug in a Mini DV camera (easily solved with a USB iLink adapter), the I/O serial port has proprietary pin assignments an Asus/Gigabyte header is needed if using this feature.
Pros: Very solid performance, no issues, small micro ATX form factor, UEFI BIOS.
Cons: I read the specs on this piece of equipment before purchasing so with that in mind I see no cons.
Pros: The GA-Z77M-D3H is an amazing motherboard with new features. Was looking for a new quality Z77 Micro-ATX board. Has nice stuff like Dual-Bios (so if you ruin the 1st bios, it automatically returns with the 2nd), 1x PCI-E 3.0 x16, 2x SATA 6Gb/s (+4 SATA 3Gb/s) and much more.
Pros: Excellent mobo with sufficient features for my purposes. No problems upon installation and applying OS (Win 7 HP) and drivers. WILL buy again soon as my other computers are a little long in the tooth.
Cons: only complaint could be no front panel header block. But that does not take anything away from board and its performance thus far.
