Apart from the Z77H2-AX, ECS showed off a mainstream socket LGA1155 motherboard based on the H77 "Panther Point" chipset, in the micro-ATX form-factor. The H77 chipset has the same feature-set as the Z77, except it lacks Rapid Storage Technology, and overclocking features. Out of the box, this board supports next-generation "Ivy Bridge" Core processors.

The board uses cost-effective electrolytic capacitors on all circuits that don't deal with large currents, only the power conditioning circuits have solid-state capacitors
So cool

That x16 and the RAM sockets are going to foul each other. The should have put the x1 first, then the x16, for better spacing. Also, x16 is often dual slot, leaving essentially 1 PCIe slot and two legacy PCI. Swapped round, there would have been x1, then x16, and if dual, still one PCI.

yeh the 16x should really only be put first if its SLI/Crossfire capable like Asus' Gene motherboards.
