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. Highly recommended, as long as you don't need all the extra little slots, or SLI.
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. Even the AI Suite III is working perfectly, a small miracle in itself (AI Suite II on my Z77 board was buggy and hard to uninstall).
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: One thing I've learned over the years building gaming PCs is that ASUS parts never let me down. Putting your cash into ASUS is a safe bet that the product will last and you'll get your money's worth. But enough about my love of this brand, I'll tell you about the board. First thing to check when considering this board is to make sure you have the right power supply -- the CPU power plug is 8-pin; some PSUs have two 4-pin plugs and that will work since you plug them in...
Pros: Extremely well built. Looks really nice also. This motherboard automatically resets itself if your overclocking settings fail, which is really helpful and saved me a lot of time from having to open up the computer and reset the jumpers/CMOS. Supports up too 2800mhz RAM (mines running at 2666, so I can't verify and 2800 frequencies)
Summary: Price: Decent considering its specs, not many other boards give you as much bang for your buck. Installation: Note this is a mini-atx board, or at least its small! So make sure you have the right case for fitting the board (or have the know-how in changing a few screws). Overall quite simply to install. Performance, so far excellent. The Asus boot up menu is fantastic, and the little perks you can download to monitor various components is nifty.
