A nice board from Asus, personally I wouldn't put this board in the HTPC section, it's form factor is way to big.
Most highend pc's can be used for HTPC use ofc, but I think in the HTPC section small with only the necessary features is a winner.

Excellent review though :) Kudos.

Looks like a nice board and good review. Though I would have to agree with the HTPC sentiment above as that motherboard is bigger than my HTPC. Though I could definitely see it in one of those cases that are roughly the size of your average home theater receiver.

My old Silverstone HTPC case could handle a full ATX board so don't count it out right away. The case was roughly the same size as a good receiver as well. :cheers:

Who says an HTPC has to have an ITX form factor board in it?

Another great board from Asus. Very good choice for overclocking. Addition of wifi with the Z77 boards makes them even better than previous Z68 series.
And I should say it is a very good review. :)

Although it could have been a good choice for HTPC due to the presence of wifi, but don't you think that it would be an overkill for HTPC? :P
