Summary: Wonderful motherboard with excellent feature set. Paired with an Intel Core i5-4670K and Corsair Vengence 16 GB (2x 8GB) kit. The motherboard allows me to easily overclock the system when I feel like it. The motherboard is very stable, and sips power compared to my last build. While I don't utilize the built in wireless currently, having the option is great and alleviates the need for a separate USB or PCI Wifi card.
Summary: First one I receive was defective and returned, 2nd one shipped from Amazon was not defective and installation was very easy. MB detected defective old Ram memory installed and it's working fine after changed to the another rams I have. Updated newest BIOS and it was easy. USB3 are working fine and it is very fast to transfer the files. Installed I7-4770K, PC Power& Cooling Silencer Mk III 750 watts, 400Gb SSD, Windows 8.1.
Summary: First time buying a motherboard and installing it myself. The instructions were very clear and not once was I confused on what to do next. After the install, the software install was simple and easy, simply but the disc in and install the drivers from there. Had it up and running in 30 mins after the hardware install.
Pros: Clear instructions on installing
Cons: Doesn't say to install after market cpu fan before install of the main motherboard
Summary: Board is overall excellent, 9/10. I like the features. BIOS is great. Included software is above average. Just wish there was more system level linux support for it. ASUS always seems to make solid or solid+ components. Desktops are not dead at all.
Summary: + Mouse CMOS is cool. Menu can be a bit new to find stuff. - Useing WiFi as an access point (new spot vs primary router wifi) drops on me occasionally. I have to shut it down and re-enable it to get it working again.
Summary: Using this board as the foundation for my htpc/steambox rig. Packaging is beautiful, layout is perfect, expansion options are stellar, and features are solid. If you're looking to build a similar high-end all-in-one rig, then this is the board you'll want.
Summary: I was going to get the sabertooth board instead but Im glad i didnt because it doesnt have much features except the TUF armor that you are mostly spending more money on. The z87 overclocks the i7-4770k to 4.8 with no problem.
