Gigabyte Z77N-Wifi Review

Recently we have seen a mini-ITX Z77 motherboards comparatives, including models from Asus, ASRock, EVGA, MSI or Zotac, but none contained the Gigabyte Z77N-Wifi. The reason probably is that this motherboard is not cut out for the overclocker gamer, it is matted and versatility is its thing. It has everything necessary to be smooth in 2013, with the exception of Thunderbolt that is present on some of the other, but also including Intel WiFi and WiDi.

Overall why is it not specifically intended for overclocker? The reason is to look at its phases, with 4 for the CPU, 1 for PCH and one for RAM. These VRM here do not allow a TDP greater than 125W, and more, there is no option in the bios to change the CPU voltage. As Gigabyte stated, this board is here to stay, and a 3770k without overclocking is enough for the entire current public software, including games. It is for this reason that it is the least expensive of the 6 Z77 mini-ITX existing motherboards with $40 to $50 cheaper than the next!
