5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It runs well with my GTX 770, and fits well in my case. all the little fans look kinda cool too.

Cons: for a first timer, when it comes to building a pc, the board looked pretty intimidating, but with a little brain power, its not THAT bad.

5 out of 5 eggsNear Perfection

Pros: Looks amazing, excellent cooling, assist fans are very easy to install. I love the back plate reinforcement since I use a heavy graphics card and CPU cooler. The Thermal Armor gives it a very rugged look. It has a 5 year warranty and 4 fan headers.

Cons: My unit did have some kind of video failure on it after about a month. Went through ASUS RMA and got it back within two weeks. I can't even be mad about it because mechanical defects happen whenever you mass produce anything. RMA was easy and quick and thankfully I had another PC to use while I waited.

1 out of 5 eggsASUS Bad RMA Service

Pros: Good product if it works for you

Cons: Awful support. I had a problem with my ASUS Z87 Sabertooth motherboard and went through the horror of ASUS advance RMA service. I filled out the first batch of forms, sent them in and got an acceptance email. I had to call 5 different rep's to find out what was taking so long to get the board shipped. I talked with 4 different ASUS rep's over a 2 week period and could not get a straight answer. Finally had to fill out new forms and resubmit again on the 5th rep. On speaking with a supervisor in an attempt to request free overnight delivery, I was told they see no error in their processing. The supervisor was abrupt and insinuated somehow this was my error? He acknowledged he has access to all phone records of their call center, so this is my fault? Needless to say I doubt I will ever buy another ASUS product again. Beware buyers. Don't expect stellar customer service if you have a problem. Now I am waiting to see if they will actually send the new board. Hoping this won't be another 2 weeks...............

5 out of 5 eggsFive-Year Warranty

Pros: I absolutely love this motherboard. I still can't believe it has a 5-year warranty. It seems to be very well made. You really don't see that much quality in electronics these days. The BIOS is very user friendly and it really supports almost everything that I wanted in a motherboard.

Cons: I'm seriously having a difficult time thinking up a Con for this motherboard. The only negative thing that I can think of, which really isn't a big deal (more of a wish), is that the top USB ports aren't USB 3.0. I would have rather have the top ports be 3.0 and the lower ports be 2.0. I found the top ports are more easily accessible, and I use them more often.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend you purchase the Sabertooth Z97 motherboard now that it's available. With technology, you should always buy the newest available standard.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Motherboard

Pros: I decided to do a review after owning the motherboard for almost a year. Overall the construction is very good, the armor does make the PCB more stable and rigid. The back aluminum plate does add cooling to it.

Average system temp is around 36 C, which is pretty good. The bios is very easy to use and supports very easy overclocking. The RAM is overclocked to 2000 MHz without issues Corsair CMZ32GX3M4X1866C10 with the CPU Intel 4770K at 4.4 GHz.

There is a pretty good support of multiple I/Os and on the rear side. Overall I would have to say this motherboard is very fast and capable, esp. given the price.

Cons: Now here are some issues I have with it. The first issue is the on-board fans are pretty much useless and extremely noisy. I've tried adjusting profiles with the Thermal Radar and it just always seems to make a really loud whining and grinding noise. As a result, I had to unplug the fans. Just to mention, the fans don't really pull to much air.

The armor, is pretty useful as it does provide rigidity to the motherboard and does help when using heavy graphics cards (I have the Asus Direct CU II GTX 770). However, it does provide maintenance issues. It collects and traps lots of dust. Additionally, it does make removing the PCIe components more difficult and I have to use a flat head screw driver to push down the release lever as the armor blocks my finger.

Other Thoughts: Overall the motherboard very good. Great build and it stays very cool. The plastic can be annoying from time to time. The most important thing that needs to be fixed is the really loud mini fans.

5 out of 5 eggsASUS is always BOSS!!

Pros: Easy to use BIOS, easy to setup hardware, easy to remove armor (when needed), excellent durability.

Cons: The cooling assistant fan beneath the proc socket would make a lot of noise from time to time.. shouldn't disable it EVER, but I was able to set it to kick on high when the temp gets high enough. No more annoying whir sounds.

Other Thoughts: I build and repair computers all day every day at work and ASUS is the only brand my company will even bother with. Others just aren't worth the trouble! This is my favorite 1150 board!! I've messed around with it, installed new video cards, new RAM, and have even swapped chassis twice. It's always worked without a hitch!!

5 out of 5 eggsFavorite Motherboard

Pros: I love this board. It is by far my favorite motherboard that I have owned. All of its features worked perfectly no problem. It has a 5 year warranty through ASUS. The thermal armor is really neat and makes the board feel really sturdy. It also gives safe places to hold the board. I really liked how many PCI slot the board has and has allowed me to have a ton options. The mother board stays super cool ( I am using the mini fans). The remote go feature is really cool. The onboard audio is of a really good quality compared to some other boards I have used. The bios and the utilities the board comes with are really well done considering it is an ASUS board. Has tons of USB and USB 3.0. The lights that troubleshoot problems with each major part is really useful. The addded thermal sensors are also handy. I could go on and on about this board. I have no complaints at all of this board.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: The fan speed settings for the mini fans is needed to make them quiet. They can be loud when they run under load. The app to use the remote go makes you go through some hoops since they updated it. Really sexy motherboard. For other builds I would absolutely get this again or the Z97.
