Asus Z87-Deluxe Webcam Issue

midwestjim7, Newegg
7 September 2014
  • Pros: Nice colors - gold and black, lots of USB ports, nice manual.
  • Cons: Asus mobo will not permit Logitech webcam to work at all. "Can't start video. Try closing other programs that might be using your webcam". All 3 of my Logitech webcams work on ALL my other PC's - with

Issues Out of the Box

James K., Newegg
19 May 2014
  • Summary: I will update with my opinions on the level of service from ASUS after they respond.
  • Pros: Great specs! Wonderful features and the board actually runs very well, once I get it running.
  • Cons: Will not power off. Tell Windows or Ubuntu to Shut Down, the system powers off, then three seconds later powers itself back on again. The only way to power it off is using the PSU switch. After turning off at the PSU, an error occurs at boot up, stating that the Memory Address is Insufficient due...

Features Work- Except Bios Clock

Robert G., Newegg
7 April 2014
  • Summary: After my experience with Asus customer support I doubt I'll be returning to their product line. I've heard nothing but excuses regarding this product that has known issues impacting multiple people.
  • Pros: Primary Features work as intended, and AI Suite 3 has a large amount of useful features such as overclocking via the software. Wireless AC on board is a nice touch, especially as it can be used as a router.
  • Cons: I've been having an ongoing issue with my Bios Clock freezing up on this motherboard, roughly every two weeks it happens where I am forced to reset the CMOS in order to maintain the correct date and time on my computer. It may seem as if it's a minor inconvenience, however when it begins to impac...

Defective, Waiting For Replacement

J. Fajcz, Amazon
6 April 2014
  • Summary: I bought this product with high hopes. I purchased from the Rover Mall through Amazon here. I received it and noticed that the seller's sticker was placed over top of the ASUS sticker where the serial number was. I didn't think much about it until I had to get technical support.

update bruce r

bruce r., Newegg
29 March 2014
  • Summary: Hope New EGG blasts ASUS support people--clearly without Newegg ASUS will have a big problem selling MB's. Also did not get an email or response from ASUS after blasting them. Newegg has been fantastic in doing RMA's etc to help me--but the reality they would not have to if ASUS would step up.
  • Pros: lots of nice features--when the board works--
  • Cons: Had to get help from a great guy in product support at New Egg--we walked through a trouble shoot to find the problem with no post was actually a bad hdmi connection on the MB--not the memory, not the bios, and all the other things and hoops the ASUS techs tried. My problem appears very similar t...

Poor Experience

Michael S., Newegg
31 December 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this board for a 4770k build. 32GB of Patriot CAS 10 1866 ram, H60 water cooler, etc.. Completed the build and the system freezes momentarily once every 4-8 hours of use.
  • Pros: Features, ASUS reputation
  • Cons: Board came with faulty chipset, RMA experience is not good for a $285 board :( Support is poor and very frustrating..

Decent Board but buggy software/bios

Michael P., Newegg
3 August 2013
  • Summary: I've used ASUS fairly exclusively over the years on custom builds, but not satisfied with buggy bios/software for the kind of money they are asking for these boards. I'll consider upgrading my rating when and if ASUS resolves the bugs in the BIOS and 4-way optimization on Windows 8.
  • Pros: Nice layout. Got at a decent price for the features. Definitely wouldn't pay top dollar for this board until ASUS fixes it's bugs
  • Cons: Buggy Bios, won't keep XMP memory information when utilizing 4-way optimization. Bugs in each version of 4-way optimization with the latest displaying access violation and hanging after the reboot, rendering 4-way optimization useless. To go back fixes one thing only to have other issues. Power s...

I wanted to like it but I had to return it

Sung K., Newegg
5 June 2013
  • Summary: Another issue I had to deal with was that the RST (SSD) Caching driver that came with the board wouldn't give me the Accelerate option; had to go to Intel's site and get an older version of the driver to work (of course this was prior to the BIOS fiasco...
  • Pros: Looks great - I like the new color scheme, nice BIOS interface, built in WiFi & Bluetooth - antennas attach to a rear port. instead of an add-on PCIe card like other boards.
  • Cons: Kept hanging up when booting up: q-code error 62; I could figure out why I was getting this error. I tried removing/swapping everything and changing several BIOS settings but nothing worked. The weird this is, is that when I rebooted by Cntl+Alt+Del, it would boot up fine, but when I shut it down...

Fine for client O/S

Norman, Amazon
24 July 2013
  • Summary: Not for Server O/S. Intel does not support or provide drivers for the on-board network card for server operating systems so I had to fit a PCIe card. What is the point of having two on-board network cards if you can not use them with Windows server? This board has ten SATA connectors.
