To some, Z77 may not be a big fuss, as it only offers slight benefits over Z68, but we saw very much a similar experience with P67 to Z68 and so far Z77 has actually been a big success, and you can see the huge array of reviews that we had at launch, from various brands including Asus, Biostar, ECS, Gigabyte and MSI to name but a few.

Z77 coupled with the 3rd generation Intel Ivy Bridge processors are the hottest combination in the retail market at the moment, as they offer fantastic performance for an amazing price point, especially when compared to competitor products on the market.

One of the hottest combinations includes the i7 3770k and Asus ROG boards that you’re used to seeing us benchmarking here at eTeknix, and that’s down to us knowing how well they perform from a tried a tested method on both the Intel and Asus front.

When it comes to Asus, we’re big fans of their products, and you will generally see us looking at motherboards from their Republic Of Gamers lineup, but today sees a slight shakeup, as we take a detailed view of the P8Z77-V LX mainstream board that packs a punch in terms of features and value, giving the best of both worlds, but how does it stack up?

As you’d expect, we will take a close look at the packaging and any added accessories that come included with this board. After, we will take a fully detailed look at the motherboard including the BIOS and main features.

We can then focus our attention on overclocking the board to see how far things can be pushed with our i7 3770k, and then take the board through our typical testing procedure at both stock speeds and 4.6GHz to see how it compares.

    Thanks for this review – I am due a system upgrade and was looking at this board. Your review convinced me it’s a good choice.

    Great review just the sort of info I was looking for Good Work,

  • Maros

    Thanks for the review, just two things confuse me, at load, what was the full power consumtion of the system? by 216 you dont mean all watts that went from cable to pc?
    What you consider as a wiser choice of proc. if 3770k is not overclocking friendly as much as it should be for the money? thanks for answers

  • Cal

    Bought this board because of the great reviews. This one being one of them. Thanks for all the benchmarks it really restores my confidence in my purchase. Mid-grade/budget gaming builds will love this board, as if you’re like me and had to go quality on memory, board, psu, and had to skimp with an i3, and 7870 2gb then you want to have something that is future proof. I’m going to be upgrading my rig in at least a year, and it helps to know I’m ready for a big upgrade without the headache of needing new EVERYTHING. TY eteknix!

    have this board with i-5 3550 cpu – 16 gigs ddr3 – corsair ssd and w/d 1.5 tb drive – 550Ti – runs awesome

  • Terry

    running mine with i7-3770k/16Gb DDR3 1600/Samsung SSD 120Gb/Evga 550Ti SSC – It’s rocking. I don’t care others saying about low end board. But it runs smooth with my CPU

  • Ben

    Great review, it gave me confidence on choosing this board, as a mid-range product. Definitely going to pair with a i5 3570k and try to overclock to 4.5 GHz.
