Suggestions on a Z77 based motherboard?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Does anyone have any suggestions on a Z77 based motherboard?

I have a price range between 100 - 200, however, I don't want anything insane (Crosshair series).

Would appreciate all suggestions.

Gigabyte Z77X UP4 TH ~$190, the GA-Z77X-UP5 TH is about $210 these days ... the fan control is a bit lacking in terms of how the fans' ramp up are coupled

ASUS P8Z77-V PRO is about $200 but it comes with WIFI

Asrock Z77 OC Formula is a bit more than budget, runs about $230

Towards the $100 mark I'd look at the Gigabyte Z77X-D3H or UD3H.

I just got a Z77X D3H v1.1 (8 pin mobo connecter), couldn't be happier with it.
Who'd have thunk you'd be able to use a mouse in the BIOS? Kids today.
