For you mini-ITX fans, Zotac has released a pair of motherboards, one H77 and one Z77 which will let you build a tiny machine powered by an Ivy Bridge processor ... whenever Intel gets around to releasing them.  Both boards are similar, with a single PCIe 3.0 slot and two DIMM slots, the differences lay in the features.  The biggest difference is the overclockability of the Z77 model, for those looking to build a small gaming machine.  On the other hand the H77 model is more flexible in its video outputs with a DVI-I connector replacing the second HDMI port the Z77 sports.  You can see the rest of the differences below.

You have the pictures and descriptions in the wrong order. Might want to fix that up.
