I'll probably end up with this board since I want the over/under clocking. I don't need the wifi but no one else seems to want to put out a z68 mitx board. I read somewhere that Gigabyte won't have one until next year.

I also saw an interesting thread posting on hardforum.com as this guy went the extra yard to email manufacturers directly and asking about their plans. Interesting replies....

Reviews now trickling in on the board. It's not looking too good.

Crappy bios has poor overclocking ability.

Looks like we are only a week or so away from the US release. Nothing from Asus or Gigabyte as to whether they will be jumping in or not with an ITX Z68 form factor.

Gigabyte won't have anything until next year. Someone from gigabyte said so on hardforum.

And Asus hasn't exactly jumped in either. So with that said, looks like Zotac maybe the only mfg and option. Wonder if that will allow them to keep prices high.......

Just another phantomware. When Zotac first annouced it, release date was mid July.

Given the delay and the 'reputation' of Zotac's ITX motherboards and support, this is probably going to be a big flop.

When are they gonna figure it out? I bought two of their P45 itx boards....they were horrible, for the same reasons you mention :roll:

Will a Prolimatech Samuel or Scythe Big Shuriken clear the Supreme's northbridge/VGA cooler? If so, the small fan could be ditched in favor of the airflow created by the CPU cooler's larger and presumably quieter one... :mrgreen:

Is this the only overclockable ITX 1155 board? Any others with z68? How about P67? I really don't want onboard video.. just CPU overclock.
