I am trying to decide between two H77 motherboards for my miniITX HTPC, what do you think between the Asus P8H77-I or the ASrock H77M-ITX.

Thanks

David

Heads its the Asus......tails its the ASrock.

If you want to wake your pc from s5 full shutdown, go asrock, thats why I am picking them.

ASrock B75M-ITX is enough for HTPC (the same as H77M-ITX, except for 1 less SATA 6Gbps port, no RAID, no ISRT, none of which is essential for HTPC).

I have that Asus in my server, and the z77 version of the asrock in my htpc. Both have been flawless.

Thanks, I hadn't thought about the B75. I will have a look.
