Conclusion: You may remember with Asus, they had a range of motherboards branded as their core series which consisted of Pro, LX, LK, V, V-Pro, Deluxe and so forth. This has now had a complete overhaul with a new design and new naming system. There is a large selection within this range, but it is worth noting that these will be region specific, so that the consumer may not be able to get their board of choice, depending on their territory.
Pros: Performance at stock is strong, Overclocking potential is amazing, Asus have harnessed the power and features of the Z87 chipset, Feature rich, CrossFire support, High-end features are still present including TPU, FanXpert 2, GPU boost, Strong branding, BIOS have been improved
Cons: Three legacy PCI expansion slots are not welcomed, Colour scheme is hit-or-miss, Pricing is just over what we’d expect
