Do you trust open box? I won't have the money until the 25th when I get paid. But I would definitely go that route if it isn't snatched up by then. I bet it will be, hopefully there will be another.

I plan to run a healthy vcore for several years chip willing. 1.4 for now if I go water I can have 5ghz with 1.5v maybe sometime next year. I will need a good board to do that but I am not financially able to step into the $250 to $300 range for a board.

Knowing Asus, they might have nerfed v pro BIOS compared to their ROG boards even if the VRM on the board is very good.

As you can see, Sin0822 rated v- pro and UD5H VRM to be equal. I see no other reason for UD5H be better other than if Asus nerfed the BIOS.

It's hit or miss. Some people got a mobo with bent pins and neither Newegg, or Asus helped. Others have no problems.

Looking at the specs the p8z77-v pro should have a recommendation of Air + sub zero but its the only one on the entire table that is blank. Great table and good info to have, didn't know Asrock went analog for the entire Z77 line and was the only one to use D-Pak. The only difference I saw was the gigabyte uses power pak and the asus uses LF-PAK.

Why are you even looking at Z77 pro with Maximus V available in your price range?

I highly suggest Asrock Professional, 16+8 power phases should do the trick.

I also just read that you cannot return it. I would have to use warranty service if it wasn't right. Asus not known for good Rma holy autocorrect... Rma needed to be typed 5 times.. Service.

Sins comparison of the motherboards electrical components: Any reason why the p8z77-v pro would not be able to handle 1.5v for a couple years?
