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:

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
