EVGA Z77 FTW Motherboard Review @ Hi Tech Legion
The EVGA Z77 FTW motherboard is compatible with the latest 28nm Ivy Bridge processors and is designed with overclockers in mind. The EVGA Z77 FTW has been packed with features in a slightly slimmer than EATX form factor at 10.3" wide. Onboard buttons, dual CMOS reset buttons, triple BIOS support, DEBUG LED, and extra CPU as well as PCI-E power connectors are just some of the conveniences available for performance tuners. Five PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots are available for some Quad-SLI action, utilizing a PLX PEX8747 bridge to circumvent the PCI-E graphics 16-lane limit of Ivy Bridge processors. A pair of extra SATA3 6Gbps ports via a Marvell 9182 controller as well as a pair of USB 3.0 ports via an ASMedia ASM1042 controller is available onboard for additional high-speed storage options.
