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.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat board -- Except

Pros: Great board. Great performance (I'm not a gamer) lots of I/O ports. Started with 16 GB of RAM [G.SKILL Trident X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM ]. Have run Fedora and now running Ubuntu 14.04 version of Linux on this machine.

Running VirtualBox and several guest OS at the same time an the board just purrs along.

I'd buy another ASUS board of the same class

Cons: DIMM slot 3 is unusable. Having added another 16GB of G.SKILL Trident X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM the board would no longer POST.

Moving two sticks around at a time verified all the memory is good. Tried the "MemOk!" button too with all 4 sticks. No luck.

Tracked the problem to DIMM 3 with a magnifying glass. There's one pin/connector that's bad, no metal present.

Now I have 24 GB of ram not 32 :-(

5 out of 5 eggsGreat!

Pros: -BIOS v 2004 OOB, awesome flashback feature, ran i5-4690k without issue
-Solid, can support the heaviest of GPUs and Coolers without and issues
-Runs extremely cool, 35 C when under load.
-The dust caps for each unused port or plug is convenient
-Runs with windows 8.1 without problem
-Great rebate and best value at the moment!
-5 year warranty

Cons: -Heaviest board I have ever used, not really a con, but you need to be more careful when setting it on standoffs
-Optional fans are slightly loud, even in a Fractal Design R5, and produce a consistent hum, however, they keep the board cool
-The USB 3.0 on-board header is inconveniently located, and in my case, is was a pain to connect the front panel 3.0 cable relevant to cable management opening
-The first PCI 1.0 slot is rendered useless if you decide to use a big fan cooler, i.e. Noctua NH-D15
-No M.2, not really a big deal

Other Thoughts: Overall, the value of this board is phenomenal. Was going to get a z97, but could not pass this up. Only difference no M.2, not really a big deal in my opinion. Came with devils canyon ready bios...ran cpu no problem. No issues yet. Only cons as mentioned above. Has ample options, great bios, and asus tuf guarantee, can't ask for much more!!! Thumbs up!

4 out of 5 eggsHad to fix 4 bent CPU pins very easy

Pros: High Quality capacitors, good quality board. Like the bios flash back option you can update bios without CPU or ram.

Cons: Had to remove the plastic thermal armor in order to get my ASUS GTX 670 4gb to fit snug. Had to bend 4 CPU pins on motherboard to get it to work correctly . I used a scope to make sure i got the pins bent correctly.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Incredible Value

Pros: 5 year warranty, heavy construction, outstanding BIOS, and ready for Devil's Canyon processors. For some reason, this onboard sound comes across pretty well, and I usually use a mid range sound card.

Cons: While I did the research and knew what this board has, and what it does not have, I do wish there were an on-board start button and a numeric trouble code read out. In this build, I found that I fortunately did not need either one, but they are really nice to have if you need it. I am not using the small 35 mm fans, as the previous reviews allow me to believe that they sound like miniature chain saws, and are not essential. (My case has plenty of fans).

Other Thoughts: It might be the processor, (i5-4690K), but I think this board seems to overclock my processor much better then some of the newer Z97 boards, the "Hero" included. This board arrived with BIOS revision 2004, so no need to flash the BIOS to run Devil's Canyon. The board fired right up with NO issues. For what this board is currently priced at, versus the new Z97 Sabertooth, this board is an outstanding value. I will also add that this is the heaviest motherboard I have ever experienced, with the solid steel backplate and thermal armor. Also running 2 X 4 Gb Crucial Ballistix at 1866 in XMP profile. For what it is worth, I am testing it out with Windows 10, and Windows 10 had all of the drivers for this Motherboard and installed them automatically. AI Suite 3 is also seems to be working fine with Windows 10. If you do not need an M.2 slot, you cannot go wrong with the Motherboard.

4 out of 5 eggsHigh end Mobo-Missing some features

Pros: -Looks like a tank.
-Stays cool
-Comes with 2 great little fans, install was easy and you can tell a lot of thought went into regulating temps.
-Board does stay sturdy where as I've seen other boards bend during the install process but as long as you're careful this really shouldn't matter.
-Bios Flash was easy enough and Asus outlines the steps necessary to flash your bios BEFORE installing your New 4th gen Intel processor. ( I had to flash my bios because I was installing a 4790K Devils Canyon).

-Comes with a big selection of caps and closures to seal any unused RAM or PCI ports to prevent dust from getting in; this is a professionally made and long lasting product it seems.

Cons: -Does NOT come with 4-Way Optimization like darn near EVERY OTHER Asus high end board. Why they decided to exclude this I don't know. Yes, you can Overclock in the UEFI Bios but a one-click solution on the desktop is great for those of us that cant be asked to do it manually...and since every other high end board has it, there's no reason this one shouldn't..

-Be prepared to work some cable-management magic if your plugging your GPU into your PCI 3.0 express slot, it's so close to the USB power ports that my cables kept bumping into my GPU fans and stopping them (that is the only design flaw). I had to really break out the twisty ties to keep them from bumping into one another because their just too close on the MOBO.

Other Thoughts: -It did OC int the UEFI Bios, got my 4.0 GHZ i7-4790k up to 4.6 GHZ through ASUS's XMP function. It was pretty simple (not as simple as 4-way OP but you get the idea).

- You can really dive in with manual OC if you have the time and tech know-how. XMP offers a nice little solution for OC'ing for me because I just don't have the time to spend a day getting the voltages perfect so it works OK.

5 out of 5 eggsI love this board

Pros: Good size.
Fit very nicely in my Corsair Vengeance Series C70.
It feels sturdy with a nice clean and open layout.
Airflow and cooling seem to work really well so far.
The BIOS is intuitively easy to use.

Being working around PCs 20 years and this was by far the easiest board I've ever installed.

Cons: Zero so far!

5 out of 5 eggsEasy setup, Great board

Pros: -Very sturdy board
-Dust covers complete a great look
-Easy and intuitive BIOS
-Thermal sensors work well

Very happy with this motherboard so far, no issues in installation or setup, and it has run stable and cool so far. I decided not to install the optional mobo airflow fans to reduce noise (several reviews here have said they are loud) but I like having the option to drop them in if needed.

Cons: -Dust cover not pre-installed on backplate (not a big deal)

Other Thoughts: Intel Core i7-4790K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler
Asus Sabertooth Z87 ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
G.Skill Sniper Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Memory
EVGA GeForce GTX 980 4GB Superclocked ACX 2.0 Video Card
NZXT H440 (Black/Red) ATX Mid Tower Case

5 out of 5 eggsSexy Mobo

Pros: Can't say i know everything about this board i really just got it because of the great reviews and for the looks. This thing is sexy simple as that very clean black protective cover. I don't use half the extra stuff but still this Mobo does exactly what it's suppose too. ASUS never disappoints.

Cons: None.

Pros: 5 year warranty, venting and airflow controls, dust covers for I/O slots.
