Video Teaser: Intel's DZ77GA-70K Motherboard

We just wrapped up our Core i7-3770K review, and have a full week of Ivy Bridge-based coverage planned, including a mobile platform, a number of third-generation Core i5s, more depth on overclocking, and a round-up of Z77-based motherboards driven by Ivy Bridge processors. If you haven't yet seen today's review, check out Intel Core i7-3770K Review: A Small Step Up From Sandy Bridge.

Although we leaned on Gigabyte's motherboards to drive our Intel- and AMD-based comparison machines, we're increasingly using Intel's own designs when new platforms launch. The company's DZ77GA-70K behaved very well in testing, enabling expected stock performance without a single stability issue. Overclocking was made particularly easy through a combination of the Core i7-3770K, Intel's board, and the Extreme Tuning Utility, which provides real-time access to CPU ratio, BCLK, and voltage settings. 

The DZ77GA-70K won't make it into our first round-up of Z77-based motherboards, which centers on boards priced under $230. However, we will be comparing it to its peers in a subsequent shoot-out of higher-end platforms.

    Dame... I guess there won't be any barebone kits, right? I already have a bunch of leftover frontpanel USB3.0s, SLi and CF bridges and I don't even use Bluetooth or wireless... ~~___~~"

    The video was fine. It dont't matter if it was a girl or some dude. Some people on here need to get off the WOW and go outside for some fresh air.

    What's with the chick, and her "look at my TITS!" pose. Seriouilsy, do we have to resort to cleavage, just to generate traffic. Last time I checked, this site wasn't Ralph Magazine! (caters to the fun loving Australian male who has a fine appreciation for the good looking women of the world.)

    Wow, you guys are ridiculous. You are actually COMPLAINING about a good looking chick showing off cleavage? I mean, I guess it isn't fair, seeing as how most users on this site would be lucky to get ANY girl, let alone a good looking one, so I can understand the backlash for being taunted with one!

    If you are actually upset about a hot chick promoting a product, it's time to hand in your man card IMMEDIATELY!
