Summary: The specs state this does not support RAID, but that's not true. This does support RAID on the board. I'm using this for my office pc. I will be building another one of these to use for my video editing needs.
Perfect for a business work station that needs more punch

Summary: Needed a motherboard for one of my business clients who wanted a solid business PC for a home-based business, but also needed some extra power for the graphic requirements of his profession and for some off-work gaming. Even though ASUS had fallen out of favor with me lately (due to a series of bad experiences), I did a fair amount of research and found that this motherboard had the best mixture of business & gaming features.
Summary: Running this board with a 4770k, and three 780Ti's.... it rocks. Really fast, great OC capability, and the Motherboard RAID is decent too. Running a quad SSD Raid-0 config... no problems. Asus's typical quality, with some really cool features that are great to have in a workstation board.
Summary: I've been a fan of Asus boards for years. They have just never let me down before, and neither did this board. I am using this board in a SOHO environment. The cpu is water-cooled but not overclocked. Installation was easy. There really are not any surprises on this board. It does like to have 2 8-pin Aux.
Summary: Ordered this Thursday, received it Saturday. I received mobo PN: 90SB0390-M0AAY0 but CPU-Z confirmed the Lynx Point chipset was rev. 05 (C2 revision chipset). Very easy to install, I even added a second 8pin EATX power cable to the mobo. Mobo came right up first post with BIOS rev. 1302. I flashed to the latest rev. 1504 from within BIOS/Tools/Flash Utility without a problem. Board booted right up in Windows from a previous installed Z87 chipset board.
Summary: I figured a Work Station class board would be a solid performer, it may be if it worked. I tried 2 and both had issues from the PCIex16 burning out, onboard graphics (on CPU) not working, to RAM slots being dead. ASUS needs to step up the quality control on this high end board.
Summary: First, a little background... Before the Z87 chipset was even released in March 2013, Intel announced that a bug had been discovered in its USB3 controller that affects the way that some USB3 devices are polled when the computer enters a sleep state. In fact, the devices -- mostly high-speed flash drives -- are not polled and the attached USB3 drives don't awaken when the rest of the system does.
