Customer Reviews

Recognized everything on boot up and us going like crazy.
T Daugherty
The BIOS is very intuitive and while I prefer manual overclocking the auto-tune features provided on this board are great for the novice.
John Hull
All drivers were available and it has been running for weeks without any crashes or interruptions.

I purchased this exact model from Amazon and can confirm it is Z77 not H77. Not sure if Amazon had something screwed up with previous descriptions but the P8z77-v LE is a Z77 motherboard and the system should show that I "purchased from Amazon" above/below my review.

In the interest of saving time for myself, I am going to copy and paste the review I wrote on the Intel i7 3770s as some of the info might be helpful here as well. One other thing before I do, if you are planning to run Windows 8, I would suggest NOT installing the entire AI suite as some of the utilities will likely make Windows 8 crash, possibly even requiring a complete reinstall of the OS. I have confirmed that EPU, Fan Xpert2, and the basic AI install utility run fine. That said, when i checked all the boxes for all available features under AI suite, my system crashed beyond repair upon the first reboot.

Have been running since launch week and has far exceeded my expectations. Windows 8 Consumer Preview as primary os, hyper-v virtual machine with windows home server running in the background and CPU usage usually never goes above 5%. Also, my system idles at 38 watts.

The most amazing part of my htpc/server is that at most times the only fan running is the hyper 212 evo heatsink fan (variable speed using Asus fan xpert2 between 600-700 rpm) and my CPU and motherboard temps have never exceeded 41 Celsius.

If I run the rear exhaust fan at 250rpm temps never exceed 35 Celsius.

Word to the wise, If you are planning to use hd4000 graphics with windows media center, make sure to turn off the automatic contrast adjustment in the intel driver settings otherwise you might find the screen constantly adjusting on some recorded content.

Hope you found this helpful.

Here's what I can provide:

Pros: 1. Nice board layout. (SATA location at the rear of any case, is not ideal. Make sure to use the angled 6gb USB cables which come with the board)
2. Plenty of ports, especially USB's.
3. Great BIOS (See issues below)

Cons: I have years of experience with ASUS motherboards, and don't ever recall a problem as frustrating as the one with Marvell SATA Controller. Having never had the need to call the ASUS Support line, I did not realize how incredibly non-responsive their support line was. 4 or 5 days of trying to get through and leaving numerous messages.

The problem manifests itself in that the Marvell SATA Controller, during POST, indicates that there are "No Disk Drives Connected". However there are 2 Drives, an Intel SSD and Western Digital Black.

What happens is that every time the computer starts, it comes to a black bootup screen TWICE before proceeding to load Windows (Same problem with Windows 7, then with Windows 8 Upgrade)

I've spent hours researching this issue on Forums, and have tried everything I know of, other than RMA'ing the board. The Marvell Controller cannot be disabled, so either I just have to ignore the problem, or find another Board.

For those reading and are skeptical, see my build info below. This does not have anything to do with the Intel SSD (or the additional WD Black)

This is a well documented problem all over the net, and not just with this particular motherboard. But since ASUS will not respond, the options STINK!

Other Thoughts: I'm about to build 12 computers, and used this as my "Beta". Needless to say, this will be the last ASUS I will buy.

There was a problem initially where Curcuit City was fulfilling these boards, and shipping the P8H77 instead of the P8Z77, which I too was a victim of. Unfortunately I didn't realize it until after I built my system and then tried to find the eSata port on the back (which wasn't there)... Anyway, that board went back and Amazon shipped me the correct one (you will notice Circuit City is no longer fulfilling these.

I did however manage to install and edit a video with a new EVGA GeForce GTX670 FTW GPU and on the P8H the video playback was full motion, high resolution HD in Sony Vegas preview monitor. Even scoring a 7.9 in Windows 7 performance profiler. When I got the P8Z and re-built my machine, I was sadly dissapointed to find that the performance I was getting from the NVIDIA GPU was inferior on a motherboard that is supposed to be superior to it's sibling, the P8H77 (which I just sent back). Not only did it score 7.8 but the full resolution video playback on the preview monitor could not stay in sync with the audio, and the video was slightly choppy. I had to downgrade the quality in Sony Vegas to get he audio to sync up and play smoothly. Over-clocking (with the really cool automated software ASUS provided) didn't fix it.

That is not the only problem. I have a phantom USB host controller that cannot be identified in the system hardware, and I've installed and reinstalled all the latest drivers for this MB, even flashed the BIOS, to no avail.

While I love all the enhancements to the BIOS and the overclocking settings ASUS has offered on this series of motherboards, the performance issues for my GPU and the phantom USB controller are a big dissapointment.
