Just sold this board yesterday to a friend after using it for a month. I just settled for an Asrock Z77E ITX. After the assembly and installation on my Bitfenix Prodigy build, I can say that Asrock Z77E ITX is way better on features and feel on using it for a few hours.

My ITX build:

Bitfenix Prodigy
Asrock Z77E ITX (formerly Gigabyte GA Z77N wifi)
Intel Core i5 3570K
Corsair H100i cpu cooler
G. Skill Sniper 2x4GB 1600 CL9
OCZ Vertex 4 128GB/Seagate 500GB
Zotac GTX 560Ti
Seasonic 620W Bronze non-modular

I have the H77 version and I love it! Gigabyte's mITX boards are one of the best IMO and one of the best priced mITX boards to add to that... ;)

Great review, and a very nice board I just think I will stick with my ASUS, at least until I upgrade to Haswell!

Why does Gigabyte make 2 virtually identical Motherboards with the "H" and "Z" versions? It doubles the inventory costs!:confused:
I know that PCB real estate is very limited, but wouldn't these motherboards be the perfect place for Lucid Virtu GPU?
Look at the bottom of this page to see what case GB used as an example.
Good review, Dave. Never thought I'd be looking at MITX or even MATX, but this, the Asus Z77 MITX, and that Prodigy case has me thinking.....smaller.

Da chipset! :slap: (Z77 version supports overclocking, while H77 doesn't...)
