ASUS Z87-Deluxe Motherboard Review: High-class platform for LGA 1150
2 weeks ago
Summary: Asus Z87-Deluxe is good and balanced model for powerful LGA 1150 system. It has additional SATA 6 Gb/s and USB 3.0 controllers, Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac and Bluetooth support dual Gigabit Ethernet, two CPU fan headers and two POST-codes indicators. However we had seen some problems with it.
Conclusion: Both boards are packed with features, and on both, some are of questionable usefulness. The MSI board, though, comes with more useful accessories and cables and, we think, a few more substantive features for a little less dosh. It's our pick of this pair.
Pros: Lots of USB ports and SATA connectors, Dual Ethernet jacks, Wi-Fi hotspot repeater feature, Gold accents (if you like them), Onboard 802.11ac wireless
Cons: RAM cap of 32GB, No mSATA connector, Gold accents (if you don’t like them)
