Yeah I have the Dell 27" Ultrasharp U2711, here's the thread I started on it.
Color, graphics in games is just great. I'm still very happy with this monitor.

Yeah, none of the board links work if you left click, but if you right click and select 'open in new tab', they work fine. For example:
ASUS - Motherboards- ASUS P8Z77-V DELUXE

ASUS - Motherboards- ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77

If I build a Z77 rig, it will most likely be one of those 2 boards. I prefer the Sabertooth, I just wish they didn't put the fans on it.

My sentiments exactly.
If I could run it w/o the fans, or turn the IO panel fan around so it exhausts, I may get that board.
I don't like the idea of unfiltered air being blown into the board, or the added noise of those little (probably high RPM) fans.

Same here. I don't mind the fans so much, except that fans that small can be noisy and prone too early failure.

Yeah the only answer I know, is maybe a full cover water block for the mobo.
For me not a problem, but for those who are not into water cooling, a problem.

Re: Z77 Boards

I'm not planning on water cooling.
I guess I'll wait and see what the talk is about the fans; whether or not they are optional, and/or if the rear one can be turned around so it exhausts.

Re: Z77 Boards

The Sabertooth has a five year warranty so I wouldn't worry about the fans. They are probably good ones. I haven't seen the board yet but when you cover it up like that it is probably a good idea to have some fans.

Re: Z77 Boards

I think one of the more interesting Z77 boards, is the new Fatal1ty Z77 Professional-M - mATX board.

It looks like it will make a screaming SFF computer.

Maybe a nice small box that plugs into the Home Theater for some Battlefield 3 on the big screen!!

Re: Z77 Boards

Yep, we hit the nail on the head with that one. The benchies were not taken with the new IB CPU, however I don't think it will make a big difference any way.

Guess we'll have to wait till Haswell to see any tangible performance gains!
