I guess at the end of the day the Asus is overall better than gigabytes offerings? Over clocking being a significant factor.

^ that is false. The microATX and mini-ITX offerings from Gigabyte are just underpowered. ASUS has the P8z77-i deluxe, the Z77N-WIFI doesn't compare. Those are Ultra Durable 4 classic boards rather than Ultra Durable 5 which uses PowIR stage IR3550.

The ATX stuff like the FM2-A85X-UP4, Z77X-UP4, Z77X- UP5 TH , Z77X-Up7 are much better than ASUS offerings. They use IR2550 PowIR stage which can handle 60Amps. Everything with Ultra Durable 5 is better than ASUS Z77 boards, everything UD3H or better is on par with the p8z77V-Pro/Premium mainstream , but with 2oz copper PCB.

I am not a brand fanboy, that's why I can tell you that ASUS is better when it is, but also when it is not tongue.gif

Well yeah, I was specifically referring to the matx offerings. For full size ATX I'll go Gigabyte all day (such as my current UD5H)
