Summary: Been using for a whole year now with NO issues at all aside from the little restart thing. Also been using stock setting, no overclock or anything. I would recommend for any other budget builders who dont need SLI or 15 USB ports, just a cheap solid ASUS mobo
Pros: Price. Stability, Easy setup. No issues what so ever.
Cons: 1 weird thing about this board (which could possibly be caused by something other than the mobo, but i suspect it is in the mobo), about 1 in 5 times when i click shut down, my PC restarts instead. not even close to worth knocking off an egg, just a weird little thing that happens every few days
Summary: although it came to be doa and i spent a while diognosing this thing newegg was on their game and the next day it was in the mail....very fast service so ill give it 5 eggs for customer service....doa does happen sometimes...
Summary: I built a computer for my girlfriends brother and this board is a beast for the price. Solid, high quality ASUS mobo. I love ASUS boards and this one delivers great Z87 performance, and has great overclocking potential as well.
Pros: - Great value - Fast - AI Suite 3 - Z87 chipset - Up to 32GB 3000 RAM - Compact design - Overclocks nicely - High quality build
Cons: - No SLI - Not as many features/space as other Z87 boards
Summary: Wanted Z87 board for upgrade path, but for a budget system, and this board was a perfect fit.
Pros: Great entry-level Z87 board, has the usual Asus build quality and ease of use I've come to expect. I can't say how it overclocks since it's running an i3-4130 at the moment, but all the settings are there, in great detail. Feels very stable and quick, even using a cheap SSD and on board graphics....
Summary: I love this motherboard never used anything faster, no need to over clock here, only found 1 con not enough fan headers. but an easy fix for 10.00 bought a molex fan header. xmp in the uefi is great for setting your ram simple and works very well.
Summary: My ram first posted at 1200mhz, so I had to go into the bios and manually select "XMP" to get the ram to run at it's rated speed. Minor inconvenience, not really enough to take an egg off. Also, My CPU is supposed to run at 3.2ghz and ramp up to 3.6ghz in "turbo mode".
Pros: Quality components, easy setup, UEFI BIOS. Used this to build a system with an i5-4570, 2x4GB DDR-2400 RAM, GTX-760, and everything worked right out of the box. Overclocking and other BIOS settings are really easy to use, it's been a while since I've built a system (coming from an old Core 2 duo ...
Cons: Like another reviewer mentioned, be careful with the backplate, and make sure the tabs don't end up sticking inside the ports. No biggie, but just be careful.
