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...
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...
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: 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.
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.
