High end board and therefore a little expensive.

This board's primary design is overclocking, so if you are into that, I say go for it. ASRock makes very good products. The board is E-ATX though, so make sure you have room for it.

Uh no. H77 is NOT for overclocking. If you want to OC look at an Asrock Extreme 4 Z77. Get a 7870 instead of the 570. Add a 212 evo for better/quieter cooling.

All high-end board are eatx(Gigabyte G1.Sniper 3, Asus Maximus V Formula/Extreme, Asrock OC Formula, EVGA Z77 FTW, etc.) most can fit in a good mid-tower.
The z77 oc formula is a really good motherboard, but you can find mobos with same/more features for less price like the asrock z77 extreme 6, msi z77 mpower and Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP4 TH.

Most mid towers do not accept eATX! (just count the expansion slots)
Full towers will!

I know for e.g. the z77 asus maximus V formula fits the corsair 300r/400r, no problems at all, of course it's recommended a full tower.

Ok since I have a Zalman Z11 Plus High Performance Case it can only fit mini and standard ATX... That sucks because I was really looking forward to getting this motherboard. That one person who said H77 isn't for overclocking, I know that's why I'm upgrading...

Any other motherboards that have similar specs to this board?

There's the asrock z77 fatal1ty professional and Msi mpower z77, both are good for that and they're standard atx mobos.

Asus Sabertooth is crap compared to those above, it's overpriced, doesn't have as many power phases as the other two nor features, the thermal armor only helps increasing the heat for the mobo(just marketing).

I wouldn't recommend asus boards, they're overpriced and with low power phases and features, you can get gigabyte z77, msi or asrock for less money and with better features.
Also their quality dropped a lot with the z77 board, i mean to think the asrock boards have more quality than the asus is something that years ago someone would've laugh.

I do not know where you have this info from but generally consensus is that Asus is not any lower quality than any of the board manufacturers you mention. Overpriced maybe but I am very happy with my two Z77 budget Asus boards.

I said asus doesn't offer the best quality nor for the correct prices, doesn't mean it's the worse brand.

Better mobos : ASRock Z77 Extreme4, Extreme 6, Extreme 6/TB4, Asrock Z77 fatal1ty professional, MSI Z77 MPOWER, Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP4 TH, Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H, MSI Z77A-GD65, MSI Z77A-G45 Thunderbolt.

Atx standard of course,i'm not saying asus is crap, i like the asus z77 maximus v formula.

My preference goes with the MSI z77 mpower but the asrock z77 pro is also good.
It has everything you'll need for an atx standard(lot of features) and it has a good price point, it has the best reviews so far, and it's a newer product compared to the asrock.
Both have good amount power phases, it's up to you which mobo style, features and brand you like.

Looking at both I believe I'm going to stick with the AsRock Fatal1ty, the other board was good and it came down to the matter of which looked better. Since my computer colour scheme is black and red and the motherboard is black and red also rocking the red LEDS I have made my choice. Unless someone has an objection and can list a motherboard that's better I have pretty much made my choice.

Thanks for the help everyone!
