Asus produce a comprehensive range of motherboards which spans the performance and budget friendly ends of the market. We have already looked at some of their high performance Z77 motherboards including the Sabertooth Z77 and Republic of Gamers Maximus V Z77 Gene which are designed for users who want the ultimate performance. So we thought it was about time we got hold of one of their more cost effective motherboards to see how it fares.
Today we are going to look at the Asus P8Z77-V LX motherboard which is designed for users who are looking to build a powerful Z77 without breaking the bank. Even though the specification list isn’t peppered with overclocking features, we are going to see how far we can push the Intel i7-3770K processor.
We are going to compare it to the much better featured, more expensive ASRock Z77 Extreme6 motherboard in our tests to give us a clearer idea of where Asus have potentially compromised to achieve such an affordable price point.
