Summary: Its a great motherboard, i bought 4 of them.. BUT 1 of them failed and ASUS support is the worst. They can contact you but they wont solve the issue. Repair Support is not qualified. I had to send 2 times the motherboard for repair at Asus and i had to pay for shipping, 50usd each = almost the price of the morherboard. The second time i shipped the motherboard, it was because the first repair was not done properly.
Summary: My first Z87-A had some stability issues: sometimes unable to even POST and power issues within the board. I fought through these issues until it became too much of a problem My second Z87-A I actually had to buy because the CPU socket pins got damaged when I put back on the protective cover. However, it was worse than the first because my CPU wouldn't even POST.
Pros: Lots of room for future upgrading. Reasonably priced.
Summary: I was excited to build my first pc, and the ratings for this motherboard was through the roof. My experience with asus wasn't the best, but I decided to go ahead with the amount of great reviews for it. The first few uses I used it and worked great, then.. IT SHORTED OUT AFTER 4 USES! BECAUSE THE MOTHERBOARD SHORTED OUT, I HAD TO REPLACE ALL MY PC PARTS WHICH MEANS I LOST 1,500 DOLLARS! I AM FURIOUS WITH ASUS!
Summary: Dead on arrival. Memory system was broke. Wouldn't recognize any memory, even known good pulls from working systems, that were on it's owners manual compatible list. Just kept that red MemOK light on. Disappointing.
See the review from the purchaser of this item - not what was listed - fraud!

Summary: This is another example of tigerdirect having listings on amazon that are incorrect, and they know it. This is certainly just a processor and motherboard for this price. If you add to cart, pay for, you will be disappointed when you dont get what you thought you ordered. AMAZON PLEASE INVESTIGATE/PULL THESE IMMEDIATELY!
