Pros: Very Good Performance, Many Features, Ran great while it worked.
Cons: Board Died after 6months, Dealing with Asus support was the worst experience I've ever had. After over 9 calls finally got them to RMA board. I've always like Asus boards in the past and had no issues, but from now on I'll buy others.
Summary: I have had two of these boards. The first had random Windows 7 x64 freezes. ASUS suspected it was a VR issue and offered me a RMA for a refurb board... Seriously? $250+ for a new board only to pay to ship it back and get a refurbish product from the manufacturer?
Pros: Beautiful, sturdy, spacious, feature rich, compatible, easy to work on.
Cons: Customer service and tech knowledge from ASUS is, in my opinion, extremely lacking - let the buyer beware! ASMedia USB 3.0 ports are nothing more than a hub. ASMedia SATA 3 ports (4 of them) are ONLY for data disks, and the performance is less than that of the Intel. Would almost be better to NOT...
Summary: Lack of video ports other than displayport and HDMI is rediculous, especially when displayport is not properly implemented. minus two full eggs.
Pros: Very solid Linux performer, except as noted below.
Cons: No DVI or VGA out. Displayport convert to VGA fails to init the display in Linux reliably with an active converter. I've tried multiple Linux distros. It absolutely sucks that you need to put in an external graphics card just to hook up to vga kvm for console display. Asus, get a clue. .
Summary: Timely delivery, easy installation lovely features and looks like a solid board. I got the board cause I wanted a board that handles a windows 8 OS but it seems like some of the on boards drivers do not surppot windows 8 as my system refused to boot after some drivers were installed, had to install...
Summary: The first board I got had a problem with the memory controller. After I got everything set up I got an error code of 00 05 on the onboard LCD display. The manual listed that as a "no RAM present"-type error but I had installed a full 32 GBs.
Summary: Z87 (i5 4670) is not noticeably faster than my previous H67 (i5 2400). USB external drive problems. I have a USB 3.0 hard drive that works fine on other computers, but randomly disconnects on the Z87. When I have multiple USB hard drives plugged in, boot time goes from 25 seconds to over a minute.
Summary: GUI BIOS screens are a joy especially with mouse support. Full USB3 and native AHCI support for SSD drives is a plus.
Pros: Motherboard installed uneventfully and powered up cleanly. Intel i7-4770K seated cleanly without all the horror stories I've heard from other Newegg users. My prior Desktop was a P6x58D Premium and this Z87-Delux required additional purchase of higher density memory since all I had were 2GB stick...
Cons: I've been a champion of Asus motherboards way back and have had their P6T, P6x58D Premium, and their legacy dual core motherboards and this is the first time this motherboard kit it has disappointed me. Price charged is considered a high end motherboard but contents in kit are sorely lacking. Wha...
