ASUS P8Z77-V Pro Intel Z77 Motherboard Review

ASUS’ name has become synonymous with “enthusiast” these days. Creating motherboards, and graphics cards, and also a few smaller items such as optical drives, they cover many of the bases when it comes to the critical components of your personal custom build. ASUS also offers laptops, full desktop systems, all-in-one systems, displays, tablets, and more.

Today we’re looking at ASUS’ P8Z77-V PRO. Ranking 2nd in ASUS’s mainstream line of motherboards, ranking slightly above the P8Z77-V, and below the P8Z77-V DELUXE. Offering a 12-Phase all-digital power delivery design, 100% Japanese Capacitors, and support for SLI and CrossFire, it boasts all the required features required for a mainstream gamer or overclocker. So what do you say we put it through its paces and see where it ranks, yes?

Special thanks to ASUS for providing us with the P8Z77-V PRO Intel Z77 Motherboard for review today.

ASUS have packaged the P8Z77-V PRO in a very attractive black box with white spots through the middle. It creates a slight carbon effect, and looks nice. The product name is the largest item on the front of the box, with ASUS opting for a combination of black and green to accentuate the lettering. The next thing to grab your attention is ASUS’ Dual Intelligent Processors 3, which are exactly what they say they are; two processors on the board that handle the TPU and EPU, ensuring that your power phases deliver the cleanest, most efficient and precise voltage to your core components. Also on the box are product badges for ASUS’ flagship features, and supported standards/technologies.

The rear of the box has a map of the board and spec list on the left, as well as more detail on 5 of ASUS’ core features: Dual Intelligent Processors, Wi-Fi GO!, LucidLogix Virtu MVP, USB BIOS Flashback, and Fan Xpert 2. Again, there are feature and supported technology badges, as well as company information and industry standards, recycling information, and warranty information.

Inside the box you are provided with a users manual, installation disc, SATA cables, an i/o shield, an SLI bridge, ASUS’ 2.4Ghz Wi-Fi GO! card and antenna, and a bag of ASUS’ Q-Connectors. You’re also given a case badge, if you’d like to display your ASUS pride.

    I found the motherboard instantly attractive and after reading the review it sounds like it functions as good as it looks. I especially like the blue and black theme. If I can have both looks and function great. I found the review helpful and meticulously done. Thanks!
