ASUS P8Z77-I DELUXE/WD Pro Reviews

ASUS P8Z77-I Deluxe/WD mini-ITX Motherboard

If you want to build a high performance mini ITX system, this is definitely the board for you. ASUS has squeezed more features and functionality into this board than I would have believed possible, and the performance of the board showed that nothing was sacrificed (performance-wise) to do so. The performance of this board is exceptional, fully the equal of ASUS' larger Z77 motherboards. But there's more than just CPU performance, and the USB 3.0 Boost feature makes the most of your USB 3.0 devices, especially if you have those that support UASP. The color scheme is ASUS standard black and blue (black and red being reserved for the Republic of Gamers series). There's not as much branding and logos on this board simply because there's almost no space for it, but since a cooler and video card will cover most of the board anyway, its appearance is irrelevant. The construction quality is up to ASUS' usual high standards. The use of an 8-layer PCB is unusual in the mini ITX world, and ASUS claims that this enabled them to optimize trace routing (especially to the DIMM slots) for the best performance. It's one of those things you don't see, but it's there.
