Summary: Love it! looks and works great as expected from asus motherboards. Paired with Corsair 350d case, i5-4670k cpu, 212 evo cooler, MSI gtx 760, gskill sniper low voltage ram (2x4gb) and M12II bronze PSU. Couldn't be happier!
Summary: Another rock solid motherboard from asus, and the TUF armour addon is a nice touch. All sataIII 6GB/s connections and everything else you could want in a small form factor. Makes a great addon to a monster mini tower.
Summary: This board went together very easily, and has been rock stable. Installation was a breeze, and the new BIOS setup is a great upgrade from years past. Would definitely buy this asus board again.
Summary: 3 stars because false advertising. The picture shows the motherboard with the Thermal Armor, implying it will ship with it. I just bought this and it did not come with the Thermal Armor, granted I did not want it in the first place. But what if somebody else did? What if they chose this specifically because it shows the Thermal Armor already applied? Change the picture, because false advertising only makes you look bad Amazon.
Summary: love the features. quality build. 2 pci slot 3.0's making sli at optimum performance. the software that came with this mobo is five star. AI suite is able to control fans using a graph program for fan speed to temp. Programing is a breeze. You get all the overclocking software in bios that comes with asus's performance boards in the z87 line. I couldnt be more happy. If you want to overclock and run a good processor/ram qaulity parts or even crossfire or sli.
Summary: Asus has never done me wrong. The Gryphon has done nothing but perform perfectly. The reliability of the hardware and accompanying software is top notch. I am a huge fan of the Gryphon's color scheme. In a world of products that cater to gamers who love their builds glowing, flashing, sparkling, etc. an understated paint job is very welcome.
