Connectors and I/O
ASUS provided the P8Z77-I Deluxe with four straight SATA ports which should be
enough for any office PC or gaming system. What you'll not find on this little
thing, is practical onboard
power- and reset-buttons. Furthermore there is also no debug LED. Instead there
is something more essential for a small PC, which is a WLAN module, which is
capable of working with 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequnecies.
Totally you'll find
two fan header on the P8Z77-I Deluxe which really is much, but enough for an
office PC. On the other hand you could also build a high end system with this
little thing. In this case it might become difficult to provide plenty of fresh
air. The fanheaders have been located in the top left corner.
Looking at the external connectors directly at the back-panel ASUS
equipped the P8Z77-I Deluxe with
four USB 3.0/2.0 ports, four USB 2.0 ports, two eSATA connectors, one Intel gigabit ethernet port, an optical out as well as an
analogue audio panel. Furthermore there also is a BIOS reset button as well a a
USB BIOS Flashback button. The upcoming Intel processors will also be shipped
with an integrated graphics unit, therefore on this board you'll also find an
HDMI, a DisplayPor and a DVI connector.
