Pros: Great Board, No issues installing or connecting things. This was my first build and I am glad I went with ASUS. The Blue colors were a nice touch. Was able to overclock 3570k to 4.3Ghz easily.
Cons: No wifi, Not as many heatsinks on VRMS as other P8Z77-V boards, apparently PCB is not as thick as Gigabyte. Had difficulty installing board to IO panel, though this could be due to my inexperience.
Other Thoughts: For the price I paid, couldnt be any better. All the cons were not surprises, and might not even be that much of a con.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works great right out of the box on ASUS p8z77-v LK, with windows 7. Driver installation was simple, though I suggest against the extra programs on the disc. Only the drivers are needed. Downloads are very quick, and ping with online video games is the same as when plugged in directly.
Cons: Comes with extra software that wont go away every time you start the computer. I'm sure this could be disabled, but many people would not know how.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works great, no issues. Chose this over the new haswell chip and couldn't be happier. Overclocked to 4.1 at 1.2 volts very stable, with furmark and prime95 running at same time. Kept cool with hyper 212 evo and doesn't go over 70 degrees. Stock cooler worked fine with no overclocking. Had a GTX 660ti and the processor was nowhere near being maxed out.
Cons: Those who don't need integrated graphics are paying extra for something they do not need.
Other Thoughts: This was my first build, couldn't have been made any easier or better with a different processor. Have only been using it for about 3 weeks now, but have had no issues whatsoever.READ FULL REVIEW
