Gigabyte launched its pair of mini-ITX form-factor motherboards based on Intel 7-series chipset, supporting processors in the LGA1155 package. These include the Z77-based GA-Z77N-WiFi, and H77-based GA-H77N-WiFi. The two are virtually identical, with the exception of the Z77-based model supporting CPU overclocking. This is made possible due to the fact that Z77 and H77 PCH chips are pin-compatible, and it's only a matter of pairing either of those with compatible micro-code. The GA-H77N-WiFi has been detailed length in our older article. The two are perhaps the only mini-ITX motherboards in the industry to feature three network interfaces (two gigabit Ethernet and an 802.11 b/g/n WLAN). Further, the WLAN adapter supports Intel Wireless Display Technology (WiDi), adding to three other ways to connect your display to it: HDMI, DisplayPort, and DVI.

Your eyes doth deceive you. That's the WiFi card.
I was afraid of that. :cry: An mSATA interface would have made this an even better option for an mITX based server/NAS board. Don't have to use a SATA port or a PSU power cable on a boot drive. Ahh well, a man can dream.

nice more options to choose from. I was gonna pick the ASUS P8Z77 I Deluxe board but now EVGA came along and now this. I'll have to read reviews and think of what other components I'm gonna use in my build and choose the best board for my setup:toast:

These kinds of boards are way way overpowered for that purpose. Better getting an Atom/AMD APU board for that.

Not really, I'm thinking to get the smallest pc withouth sacrifice power and these are very good for me. I have seen some of these 1155 itx and they would be ideal if they weren't so overpriced, and the cases are expensive too.

Not if you require a media server with real-time transcoding capabilities. A dual-core i3 is just about right. And you don't too often see mITX boards with Dual-Gigabit LAN. At least not one the ones I've been looking at.

Or just buy something like the AsRockZ77E-ITX that has a mSATA interface on the backside of the board.

Ooh, that's neat. No Dual-Gigabit but I'll certainly add that to my list of motherboard considerations. AsRock has been producing some boards with some impressive features as of late. Thanks very much, sir.

That would be a totally different beast yes.
