    I have a view on this which might not prove popular.

    I think this motherboard is very expensive for Z77. Reason? Its fine with X79 or Xeon motherboards with quad channel etc, but this is £250 for a mainstream platform? great product as always from ASUS, but I wouldnt pay this for Z77 motherboard. £200 would be my limit.

    Lovely motherboard, I was tempted to buy this a week ago and bought an MSI one at the same time. Quite happy with my decision, im using a 3570K @ 4.6ghz

    This is perfect for a typical system with a 2500k/3570k + 7850 or 650 ti. Would actually be better than using a higher wattage psu as it would peak at around 50 percent load when gaming.
