Thermal Armor with Flow Valve
Sabertooth Z87 Total Airflow-Boosting Heat Dissipation

Covers the entire board and features dual fans to direct cool air to critical parts and dissipate heat faster for better stability. Drastically boosts airflow and cooling with dual fans and a smart shunt design that draws hot air away from critical components. Air power is improved with a back I/O fan that pulls in cold air and expels even more heat. Exclusive flow valve design controls heatpipe air contact, better-utilizing liquid cooling setups.
Thermal Radar 2
Complete System Cooling, Customized Fan Tuning

With multiple onboard sensors and bundled thermistor cables, you can monitor temperatures in real-time in areas around key components other than the motherboard itself. Customizable fan control gives you the flexibility of adjusting fan speeds manually and achieving optimal thermal tuning with one click.

5 out of 5 eggsawesome design

Pros: anti-dust protectors, which is the main reason I bought this board.
easy BIOS allows for easy overclocking. I overclocked the RAM but nothing else. Has different mode settings that let you change from performance or energy-saver
it uses a haswell cpu
has its own thermal sensors to monitor anything in the case.

Cons: could have had a better instruction manual with a diagram of what everything is used for.

Other Thoughts: This was a major upgrade for me, as my TP45HP biostar mobo was ddr2 ram with only a core 2 duo cpu. I bought this along with a 4670k cpu back in march of 2014 and everything is running strong. I can play all games, even the latest masterpieces, on max settings.

1 out of 5 eggsStopped working after two weeks.

Pros: I liked the look, assembled well.

Cons: - Ran for about 2 weeks then stopped booting up, no lights or anything. Tried everything I could think of to get it to cycle but never worked.

Other Thoughts: - I didn't have time to really work on it for about 7 months and ended up swapping it out for an MSI board I had purchased previously and all my components work great.
- I have always loved ASUS products and was excited to get a high end ASUS board but it just wouldn't work.
- So now it's a $300 board that sits in it's box in my parts cupboard.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat motherboard for Haswell and Devil's Canyon

Pros: - Board is extremely strong for daily driven overclocks
- Included dust covers are fantastic for keeping sockets clean
- Thick, sturdy pcb construction gives peace of mind for long term durability
- Bios was EXTREMELY EASY to flash to accept my 4790k
- XMP profiles are quick to set up
- Strong VRM section, stout capacitors, and cooling zones make this a reliable, durable selection for those shopping for new motherboards

Cons: - BIOS is a bit difficult to use compared to others. Overclocking is NOT difficult, but there are a superfluous amounts of settings to tweak that have seemingly no real impact on either performance nor stability.
- The "thermal armor" is... gimmicky. I was expecting something that felt a bit higher quality, but it just feels and looks like cheap plastic. I will probably be painting it at some point any way, so I'm not overly concerned. For modders, its a great aesthetic touch.

Other Thoughts: Comes with a 5 year warranty, supports all 1150 chips with ease, "EZ Flash bios" was actually incredibly easy to use, and over all great stability and performance all around.

5 out of 5 eggs+1

Pros: Vents for airflow, it comes with two nice mini-fans to help the flow (assembly required :P).
Tough looking board.

Cons: Only supports up to 1866 speed ram (*but has four slots).
If you have a medium to large cpu heat sink the ram slot closest to the cpu will likely not fit (Plan to get two larger memory sticks).
The instructions for the inner mini-fans could have been a little better.

Other Thoughts: Its a great piece of equipment

5 out of 5 eggsNice!

Pros: Durable, fast, paired perfectly with a 4690k. This is my first ASUS board in a long time. My last 3 builds have been Gigabyte mobo's and I was ready for a change( Nothing against Gigabyte, they have been great.). I wanted to see what all the hype was about with ASUS, and I am so far not disappointed. I slapped this in a Phantek Enthoo case(Amazing!) and was up and running in about an hour or 2. Haven't got to overclocking with it yet, but I am sure it will be fine. For the price, this can't be beat right now. I saw no need to go with the newest generation processors or DDR4 at this point.

Cons: Bit of a pain screwing the screws in the motherboard with the armor. Solved this by using a magnetic screwdriver.

Other Thoughts: Comes with a few little fans to install directly on board. I didn't bother with these as people have complained they are loud and I really see no need for them.

Get it!

4 out of 5 eggsSabertooth Z87 Very Good Quality

Pros: The Sabertooth Z-87 mother board has been pretty rock solid and I was able to over clock my 4770K CPU to 4.2 GHZ and my 1600 memory to 1866. I had to do it manually and wish it had the 5 way optimization that the ROG and some others like the Deluxe motherboard as well.

Cons: E-Sata port on the back of motherboard will not recognize external hard drive. No 5 way optimization.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Motherboard

Pros: - Solid construction
- Large range of connectivity options
- Clear instructions in box
- Two assistant fans
- ASUS AI Suite software
- Fan connectors placed in various locations on across the board
- Intelligent heat monitoring

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: A seriously amazing motherboard. I've had three ASUS motherboards, each one a step up from the last and each one has amazed me with how much it offers. From the construction of the hardware to the included software, ASUS shows that they know what their customers are looking for. I'm just sad that this build was for a customer. I might just have to go out and get myself one of these boards.
