Editors Didn't Like

  • Very average overclocking performance for a highend board with a tested BIOS
  • OnBoard audio produces very low volume only but sounds great, while the front audio port is loud, but sounds poorly
  • High price for Intel Z77, all things considered
  • The ThunderFX device does offset the cost a bit, but not enough
  • For the high asking price ASUS could've provided a larger mousepad and a USB 3.0 bracket
