The Z75 board looks so bare. Loving the right-angled 24-pin on Z77

Cheers maban! No WiFi looks like, prolly doesn't have an mSATA either :o I'm on mah phone so ya... Gonna have a better look when I get to mah PC.

Still looks like Asrock has the most complete iTX package overall, this market is going to explode soon I think :rockout:

Edit: Scratch that, I think I see an mSATA port beside the chipset HSF. Even still MFGs include a damn WiFi card! We are paying for complete packages, if not price accordingly please!

^ the ITX version is named 'Z77 Stinger' (if u can read it from the heatsink) .. there is no mention of mSATA in the prod page.. agreed on market for ITX boards, it is expanding fast..



am I missing something or it is surprising to know TPU hasn't done an EVGA board review yet.. high time for one Dave?! Z77 FTW review would be great

ya I am sure that fan will do a lot of good... blowing hot air from the GPUs right on to the motherboard.

As far as the other off-topic discussion is going, I think the ASUS m-Itx is the best board still... features and OC ability it holds the gold.

Actually the Asus isnt as good as they would have you believe, especially @ $200++

That VRM daughter board and Asus' flashy marketing is working it's "magic" on consumers. Like I said the Asrock is a more complete package and the price is great! $155 + shipping, hard to beat IMHO

Still not home so I have some MoBo researching to do, I already have the Asrock coming to me but hey ya never know! :p

Enlighten me... because I have yet to read a review that said it sucks, or has a issues OCing IB much higher then the ASROCK board.

I am not a consumer... nor would I buy either I am just aware of what is and what isn't doing good on the market. also could care less about $45 if it means I get higher and stable clock speeds

My Asrock Z77 ITX got my 2500K to 5GHz with only a Corsair H60. That's pretty much unheard of on an ITX board.

SB CPU ... buy a IB CPU and see what you get.

reviews I have seen only get to 4.2ish on 3770Ks... again enlighten me I am sure there is a review I missed out on.

If you haven't compared the boards side by side with the same setup and same CPU then you really are just going with what you got... you got a Asrock so you believe it is the best.

I am not saying one is better then other, nor am I saying the Asrock is junk... I am just going off the reviews I have read.

What kind of silly reviews were you reading? or your eyes can't tell 2 from 6?



Despite numerous ASrock hater claiming their VRM stinks, their mobo OCs just fine and Extreme 4/6 were both recommended buy on Tom's review.

I don't see any real differnces there. I see BLCK clocking, and most boards within 20 MHz of each other.

FYI, that's a difference of like .01 MHz in BCLK...nothing worth mentioning.

bottom 3 boards were not really meant ot bo voercloers liek the others, and they still managed to get close. Thos differnces coudl also easily be attributed to cooling. 1.3 V is a shit-tonne of voltage for IVB.

Over 4.2 GHz, sure, bu when it comes to clocking, there's very little differnce between boards. The real differences are in VRM design, which can affect how a board can hold an overclock long-term.

I only have the Extreme9, and the Z77 OC for ASRock Z77 products. VRM design sucks? First I've heard of it. You msut be going to other, much smaller websites.

If you want to call Overclock.net "other,much smaller websites" then feel free to do so, multiple ASUS/Giga Fanboys criticized ASrock's 7 series VRM in the ASRock OC Formula thread, long thread so I won't bother list the actual quotes but they are in there.

In case you didn't look through my post, I am a Z77 Extreme 4 owner that's pretty happy with the board, was trying to to show data that ASRock can OC just as well as other board in their price range.

What are you smoking? Who said it sucks? Go back and re-read my post/s. The Asrock is the better all around deal right now for iTX. I'm not the only one to think this and you can enlighten yourself and read some iTX reviews.

Cheers!

@ Dave: Any chance of upcoming reviews from eVGA? Specifically the iTX, I know you have some reviews about to come out but I feel like cracking the proverbial whip :p

EVGA boards have been garbage since the P67 FTW release (I had one).
