Z are for CPU that can manually overclock like intel K series CPU's and Amd's, While H are for non K CPU's or non overclockable CPU's *turbo boost non included* Also Z chipsets have extra features than H chipstes.

Z is for overclocking, H isn't. The price between a H77 and a Z77 is quite close to each other, so people tend to go for the Z one to have that extra feature for later use. People who don't have the desire to OC often go for Z77 over H77, too, because Z77 motherboards often got more high-end features from manufacturers over H77, like SLI support, high-end sound chipset, DEBUG LEDs, etc.

Madn3ss795, glad to meet you.
Your way answer question impress me for sometime, professional and spontaneous.
Z is overclocking with other feature, P is pure overclocking, H for nothing special, B for what?(any mistake?)
I would love to know, could you tell me?

Since LGA1155 platform, B is for business use ( although more normal consumers than prosumers use B75 mobo due to native usb3.0 and sata3.0 ports Intel put in ), H is mainly for normal consumers with graphic outputs, offers more feature than B ( H77 vs B75, for example. H77 offers 1 more Intel native sata3.0 port and support RAID ). Doesn't apply for H61 vs B75 though, since it's "6" vs "7" ( there was a B65 chipset introduced too, but extremely rare ). P offers basic OC-ing ability but lacks graphic outputs. Z offers more OC-ing abilities plus graphic outputs.

Then it comes to mobo manufacturers, which sometimes make B75 boards with more features than their H77s :bounce:
