“The particular model we’re looking at today is the Z77A-GD65 which sits currently at the top of the Z77 pile when it comes to offerings from MSI. Carrying with it a price tag of $169.99, it’s one of the cheapest Z77 boards we’ve looked at.”

“ZOTAC is at it again, making tiny little high-quality HTPC products, this time in AMD flavor. Featuring WiFi, Bluetooth, dual LAN, and XMP support on AMD, the ZOTAC A75-ITX WiFi is made to meet HTPC users needs.”


ECS Z77H2-AX @ Guru3D

“The Z77H2-AX is gold plated everywhere. The changes for Z77 primarily can be found in native USB 3.0 support as well as an upgrade towards PCie gen 3 PCIe x16 slots. ECS however really pimped out the motherboard with a lot .. seriously LOT of extra’s with even embedded WIFI and Bluetooth.”

ASUS P8Z77-V Deluxe

ASUS P8Z77-V Deluxe @ Benchmark Reviews

“While Z77 motherboards are perfectly capable of running Sandy Bridge CPUs, they’re really designed to showcase Ivy Bridge. Now that Benchmark Reviews actually has a Core i7-3770K CPU in hand, we can show you how it performs in ASUS’ new P8Z77-V Deluxe motherboard, a top-of-the-line product with so many features it’s hard to keep track of them all.”

“The MSI Z77A-GD65 (a.k.a. MS-7751 Ver 2.1) is a mid-range socket 1155 motherboard targeted to the forthcoming “Ivy Bridge” processors (third-generation Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 processors) and also supporting the current “Sandy Bridge” models (second-generation Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 processors). Let’s see what the MSI Z77A-GD65 will have to offer.”

“As you can see above we ended up coming in at that 4.7GHz mark we wanted to achieve with a 104.5 BCLK to complement the 45x multiplier. It’s not uncommon that we see some boards prefer to go for the higher multiplier while others prefer the BCLK tweaking.”

ASUS Maximus V GENE (Z77)

ASUS Maximus V GENE (Z77) @ Guru3D

“We review the ASUS Maximus V GENE Z77 Motherboard. a smaller motherboard (mATX) yet a product that just oozes with dandy features and overclock potential. Next to the tweaking possibilities this is a ROG (Republic of Gamers) motherboard, and means extra enthusiast features alright.”


MSI Z77A-GD65 @ Guru3D

“The GD65 offers everything you need from a proper Ivy Bridge platform, in terms of features, multi-GPU support, USB 3.0, SATA3, PCIe Gen 3.0, ease of tweaking and sure, the design is done right as well. We spotted this motherboard with a 165 EUR price tag, and feel that’s absolutely worth the money. Very much recommended.”

ASUS P8Z77-V Deluxe

ASUS P8Z77-V Deluxe @ Benchmark Reviews

“The P8Z77-V Deluxe follows the layout we’ve seen with previous ASUS mainstream motherboards. Joining a growing number of other vendors, ASUS has eliminated PCI slots, providing three PCI-E X16 slots and four PCI-E x1 slots. Unlike most LGA1155 boards, this motherboard supports triple CrossfireX and quad SLI.”

“The TUF series is special in many ways, starting from its packaging. Like the rest of the TUF models, the Sabertooth X79 is shipped in a box that looks like metallic. You can find the product’s picture and specs on the back of the box. A brief review of its key features can be seen behind the flip-back cover.”
