yea read that earlier... and the flawed part of that is, if they test the boards one at a time THEN its 24k hours... and there was a post how some etail'rs got a shippment already and after labor day more will get them... and yes it takes awhile to make a new SKU # dependent where on the list this mobo is along with a host of other 'new' items etail'rs receive everyday...

BUT~ this is after labor day, after the 2nd shippment went out *supposedly* therefore~

*of course lots of ppl don't work on wkends~ but i do so wkends mean nothing to me tongue.gif

Most Z77 enthusiast boards won't have legacy slots.

Over 1000 Mpower Z77s is over 24 thousand hours of Prime95 with a 3770K!!!!! I think that testing is the hold up.

It was late last week.

More or less, yes. There are some hardware differences so the BIOS is not the same.

I have used the same Realtek 8111E on my MSI Z68 GD 65 G3 for over 8 months and haven't had any problems with it. I mainly game with it it and it works fine. Have Verizon FIOS ISP.
I have thought about getting this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833106033 but mine works fine.
I don't do LAN gaming but I can see an Intel NIC benefiting for LAN events.
Also I don't think any particular NIC will improve ISP performance.

Bottom line is, Intel NIC adds cost to a board. so once you have Intel NIC then the price gets pushed up.... same with any bridge chips, extra SATA or USB controllers.

Then you start pricing the board out of an attractive price range.

Nice. I want to see some photos of your RIG once you get it all set up.
Good to see Newegg has them available.

It does have a pretty nice BIOS. Thank goodness the old BIOS is gone for all manufacturers.

Question: The glued on metal plates over the sinks (the yellow stripe plates), wouldn't it be better to remove those plates thus allowing the sinks to radiate the heat off better? OR is the plates on there to cause some sort of flow thing to channel air thru the sink? OR is it some sort of protective heat shield for other components?

If Newegg sends me a coupon on this mb I'd probably order one. I'm camping right now waiting for a deal on one.
