Summary: Won't break your pocket and has everything you ever need in a desktop MB. Combined with a 4th i5 Intel processor you don't even need a separate 3d card for Aero. Small initial issues with stand by mode but solved with Asus BIOS upgrade (easy and fast, as always with Asus)
Summary: There is a big difference between this level of ASUS board and the way more expensive boards like the Z87-Deluxe-Quad I am setting up in a new system for a client. However, the underlying architecture is the same. The big board came with all kinds of bells and whistles, extra parts, etc.
Great motherboard for the price! easy oc on 154670k at 4.2

Summary: for the price this thing is great, it has a great bios to set up fan speed, and easy overclocking. I had it owith my i5 4670k from 3.4 to 4.2 stable on prime 95 on air. For the money this thing is great.
Summary: I bent the right pin so it still worked with the i5 4670k I have. Reasonable price with the bundle. Everything worked smoothly Plenty of function. But for similar price I might go with the Z87-A version of the board.

Summary: new install. worked fine before video card installed. after card was installed booted to a black screen. customer service not too interested but suggested clean install and bios flash. did both with no improvment. customer servise said it must be a defective pcie slot.
Summary: I built my New Computer with this motherboard and paired it with the new i5-4670K and I love it! The reason I went with asus is becuase I love their motherboards. I've had many in the past and I've also had motherboards from different manufacturers.
