The P8Z77-V Deluxe's scores were 2.8% higher in 3DMark11 and about 4.6% higher in 3DMark Vantage than the G1.Sniper M3. In real-world testing, the results were much more comparable as the P8Z77-V Deluxe averaged about two more frames per second in Dirt 3 and averaged one FPS higher in Crysis 2. While the synthetic gaming benchmarks may suggest a larger performance gap between these two boards, I put more stock in real-world testing. The real-world testing scores were closer and shows that the P8Z77-V Deluxe has a minimal performance advantage over the G1.Sniper M3.

The two gaming charts are wrong? Dirt 3 the higher numbers are labeled Min FPS. In Crisis 2 the chart shows that the ASUS bord was slower, but you say it was faster. Which is it?

I’d like to see a report done on the missing in action Asus ThunderboltEX card for use with the proprietary “TB_Header” on these motherboards.

I mean we know Intel wouldn’t certify the ThunderboltEX card but that kind of leave the whole thing up in the air. Were the earlier motherboards released with optional Thunderbolt support advertising on the packaging or manual? If so that could puts Asus in a bad legal situation given their inability to deliver the product.

Does the Zalman CNPS12X Cooler block out the 1st RAM position on this board? It looks like you have the RAM sticks in the blue slots (positions 2 & 4 starting from the CPU and counting away from the CPU) vs. the black slots.

Yeah I'm also interested to know if the cooler blocks any of the memory slots.
