    The intended base of any EVGA Hadron build, the Z87 Stinger is EVGA's answer to a high-end mITX OC solution. Built with a focus on features and overclocking, as with EVGA's high-end videocards and PSUs, the EVGA Z87 Stinger makes its mark, but does it sting like a bee, or is it only as annoying as a fly?

    FINALLY, a Z87 board that doesn't waste massive amounts of I/O panel space on VGA and DVI ports, and instead gives a decent amount of USB ports. Hopefully by the time Z97 arrives we'll be getting 4 USB3 + 6 USB2 on the back panel as standard.

    Had this board. Hated it. Had the z77, hated it. Ended up paying 30$ less for MSI z87 Gaming AC Mitx..... Personal preference. This board just didn't cut it for me :/

    So expensive for a niche hobby. In the end of the day, it's still a desktop PC.
