The board includes more USB ports than the others, it includes WiFi and Bluetooth, an Intel LAN controller, it's Thunderbolt-ready, its UEFI is well laid out and offers extensive tweakability features. The board also includes a PLX PCIe switch, which offers all of its slots full PCIe connectivity. The Asus P8Z77-V Deluxe also proved to be perfectly stable throughout testing. In short, the Asus P8Z77-V Deluxe may be pricier than the rest, but if you've got the funds and want / need one or more of the board's features, we'd recommend it.

Am I misunderstanding what a advanced PLX is? I plan on only running a single 680... so i'm not sure if it matters for me. tongue.gif

I know there's two types. There's one that splits the lanes and one that directly adds more lanes (I'm pretty sure of at least). Either way, with PCIe 3.0, you'll likely not see a difference since it'll be running at full 2.0 bandwidth or above either way.

And yeah, with PCIe 3.0, running dual or tri won't really matter since the bandwidth will be there either way. Completely negligible if you're running one card.

Either one of these will be my choice:

01. ASUS P8P77-PRO
02. ASRock Z77 Extreme6
03. Biostar TZ77XE4

Might have to see what the pricing will be...

E8500 OC 4,20 Ghz. biggrin.gif i5-2500k OC 4.390 Ghz. biggrin.gif

I live in Denmark: 1. Hardware is more expensive. 2. Can't buy outside Europe due to toll fee. 3. Can't use links to Newegg or that kind. 4. US pricings are NOT the same as DK pricings.

HotHardware did the mistake of seeing a PLX chip on the board and not realising which one it is. The PLX on the ASUS board is just for controllers - it is the PLX PXE 8747 chip which doubles PCIe 3.0 lane connectivity, which we have on the ECS Z77H2-AX.

I'm the reviewer for the article - I've had requests just to quote phase counts. If the number means anything to you (it seems to for some people), then take it home and put it in your pocket. If not, then ignore it.

On the UD3H review,

Page 8 quote: "The VRM power delivery weighs in at 6 + 4 phase, which is by no means substantial (remember the ASRock Z77 Extreme4 was 8 + 4 and less expensive)."

Yet: the "Conclusions" chart (page 14) shows the same board having 10 + 4 power.

Which is correct?

Sys #2,: A10-7700K @ 4.6Ghz, ASRock FM2A88X Extreme6+( FM2+) ,4gb GSkill Ripjaws @2133Mhz, Corsair 300R, Samsung P2770 HD-1080p, R7 250, Crucial C300 64GB Boot + Samsung F3 500Gb, NOCTUA NH-D14, Antec 620C Neo

Straight from Gigabyte themselves in an email I got not much more than an hour ago:

"The Z77X-UD3H has 10 phases (6 x CPU, 1 x VGA, 2 x Memory and 1 x VTT). The Z77MX-D3H has 7 phases (4 x CPU, 1 x VGA, 1 x Memory and 1 x VTT). Regarding the marketing and promotion of phase numbers, frankly speaking you can appreciate that some Taiwan vendors like to promote specific numbers when they have slightly larger numbers to talk about. Our current solution from International Rectifier isn’t particularly big on the number of phases, but really hits big on overall power delivery and control"

Please note this is Gigabyte, who have before strongly marketed 24 phase boards with one particular rev 1.0 UD7.
