Excellent Motherboard

Angel T., Newegg
4 July 2015
  • Summary: @ Sebastian G.: The problem that you had with the PCIe X1 not working is because those PCIe X1 are assigned to Thunderbolt. If you are not using Thunderbolt Connector, then go to the Bios and disable it, that will enable those PCIe X1. Thunderbolt port shares bandwidth with PCIe x1_2/4 slots.
  • Pros: Thunderbolt
  • Cons: None

  • Summary: So far so good. The board came in good shape and contains the features we wanted for an NLE video capture and editing computer. Only gripe I have is that the Thunderbolt does not play well with other devices that are not manufactured by Apple.

Great ASUS board

Roger N., Newegg
4 October 2014
  • Summary: At 226 bucks, this is a great value for an advanced board with many options.
  • Pros: I've always had good look with ASUS boards, so decided to stick with them for my latest build. I specifically wanted a board with with built-in WiFi, which significantly reduced the number of possible mobos in my search. I'm surprised that this is not a common feature for most boards. But it work...
  • Cons: I've deducted one egg only because the claimed WiFi hotspot does not work. If anyone has any suggestions about getting it to work, that'd be great!

The heart of the best computer I've owned thus far!

Donna W., Amazon
26 September 2014
  • Summary: LOVE this motherboard! Add an i7 4770K CPU, or even the newer 4790, 32GB of RAM, and a 1TB+ SSD. Put it into a good case with adequate cooling and a decent 850W power supply, and you'll have a screaming PC!! I built such a system a couple of months ago with this board and LOVE it.

2nd Board, No Longer Powers On

Sebastian G., Newegg
17 August 2014
  • Summary: The RAM is verified as working, the PSU also, and all other components are still working in a different system. I've troubleshooted the entire system, and it has lead me to the motherboard. 2nd ASUS Z87-Expert that has failed me in the space of 6 months.
  • Pros: When this works, it's a beast.
  • Cons: Had to RMA the first one after the PCI-e 1x ports weren't working. Now, about 3 months later, the new motherboard will not power on at all.

Nice board!

Randy Wright, Amazon
1 June 2014
  • Summary: Great board. Easy build. Everything worked form the start. Have built since the late 80's and used intel, MSI, Gigabyte (good boards) but always come back to Asus. Everyone may have a DOA once in awhile but Asus is always on top. Tech is a little weak sometime but so are they all.

Walter L. Williams "Cadman75", Amazon
28 May 2014
  • Summary: This motherboard works great with Samsung Solid State 500GB hard drive and Intel Core i7-4770K Quad-Core Desktop Processor. Startup is lighting fast, I haven't played and games or tested many programs yet.
