There's not enough testing data to KNOW which are the 'best' Z77's and I see absolutely no point in getting one until the Ivy Bridge is available and THOSE tests are available. The leaked IB + Z77 weren't good which is code for the early BIOS and Drivers being immature and not ready for 'prime time.' My best advice is to wait for at least 2 BIOS revisions before purchasing IB + Z77 unless you're a masochist and or love drama.

Next it depends on what GPU(s), peripherals, requirements, etc which clearly are not listed in your initial post in this thread.

Otherwise advice is just gibberish.

Actually at least 20 boards have been reviewed and tested already, the main problem is Intel won't allow them to publish IB results yet.

Yes, since our 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processors havent launched and are still under NDA it is really tough to post any performance on these Z77 boards since some of their features can only be tested with the newer processors.

Only a few with horrible results with the IB CPU -- i.e. I'm not going to guess how they'll work; see -> http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/329828-28-bridge-cpus...

I can guess, assume, prophesize -- i.e. not know what the hell I'm taking about and BS a few MOBO's. I need vCore data and overlapping data.
