As promised, this was a quick look at just a small aspect of the new P8Z77-V Premium, Asus’ new flagship motherboard. Considering I am less than twenty-four hours away from a motorcycle run down through the Southern States, its arrival only a few hours ago was typical as there was no way I could leave it’s installation until I got back. Asus’ choice to enable the SSDs use as either a caching solution or stand alone was a very smart one as it provides the consumer with functionality that hasn’t been seen prior.
As a quick look, this is our new Test Bench with the Asus P8Z77-V premium inside the Corsair 600T chassis and containing the Intel i7-3770k which is cooled by the Corsair H100 Liquid CPU Cooler overhead. Memory is comprised of 32GB of Crucial Ballistix Sport and power is supplied by the OCZ Fatal1ty 1000w PSU.
