 Verified Owner
Dual x16 pcie 3.0 lanes
Easy overclock
A bit expensive but one of few z77 boards with dual x16 pcie lanes. Yes it is via PLX PEX 8747 chip so it probably isn't very good compared to a x79's true pcie lanes but its a start. Currently running crossfire 7970ghz.

Experience: 7 Days
 Verified Owner
Loaded with tons of features
16x/16x SLI
Easy overclock
Incompatible with ASUS GTX 670
This board would've been great had it worked with my ASUS gtx 670's. RMA'd
