Brick

Anonymous, Newegg
14 November 2014
  • Summary: Don't go for that brick it's not worth your money!!!
  • Pros: Brick, Brick, Brick, Brick, Brick, Brick, Brick, Brick, Brick, Brick, Brick, Brick, Brick, Brick, Brick, Brick, Brick, Brick, Brick, Brick, Brick, Brick, Brick, Brick, Brick, Brick and i forgot to mention brick !
  • Cons: A good looking brick -_-. The last few months i was wishing this thing was DOA. But no. It was refusing to post the moment i bought it. It came with worn out battery. After a bios flash and another battery it lasted 2 months. Then another trip to the shop i got it from for another battery. This c...

Does not work with the new i3 4150's

Usama K., Newegg
18 September 2014
  • Summary: I wish they would actually have a fix for it, but the tech support kept telling me to update bios which I have so many times
  • Pros: worked good with 4770k but does not support i3 4150
  • Cons: I just recently purchases an i3 4150 and also H97-I Plus. I ended up using the 4770k i was running on Z87-C with the H97 board and then tried to use the i3 4150 with the Z87-C. I had updated the bios for Z87-C. I tried 1802 and as well as 2004 as bios versions but nothing. The mother board does w...

Very good ASUS MB

Francisco Acosta G., Amazon
22 June 2014
  • 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)

Worked for a little over two months

FRANK V., Newegg
18 May 2014
  • Summary: For two weeks, I have been trying to arrange an RMA with ASUS, with little success.
  • Pros: Nice while it worked.
  • Cons: After working very well for a little over two months, one day it just stopped working. Does not even get to the BIOS splash screen.

Newegg must've gotten a bad batch

David S., Newegg
9 April 2014
  • Summary: I bought this from a local retailer instead of Newegg, but I've had none of the issues anyone here has described with the board. I suspect Newegg simply got a bad batch from Asus, which is unfair, because that reflects poorly on this model, which as far as I can tell, is perfectly fine.
  • Pros: This board has been running 24/7 in a mid- to high-end machine since December, and it's not stepped one foot wrong for me. It just works exactly as it should. The only issue I had with it was incredibly small: The BIOS version it shipped with wasn't compatible with XMP profiles for memory configu...
  • Cons: I suppose I'll count the XMP issue as a con, even though it's an extremely minor one. The BIOS that shipped with it wasn't compatible with XMP profiles for memory configuration, but a simple BIOS update fixed that.

Met Expectations

rafisher1, Amazon
22 March 2014
  • 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.

Fired Right Up

Paul J., Newegg
6 March 2014
  • Pros: Worked right off the bat. Fired up straight away with 16GB of 1600 RAM and i7-4770 processor.
  • Cons: The user manual was adequate, yet not great.

brian hudek, Amazon
27 February 2014
  • 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.
