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.

TUF design protects back I/O ports, expansion and memory slots, plus critical connectors from dust and particles that degrade system performance over time if left unchecked. With a filter to ensure the back I/O fan doesn't draw dust into the board, Dust Defenders guard against dust build up, helping your PC perform in an optimal and stable state longer.

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.

2 out of 5 eggsi wanted to love it

Pros: innovative and well designed

Cons: received and 2 of the 4 ram slots were missing pins.. this from a board that is supposed to be check numerous times. how did this happen? i am very disappointed i wanted to believe that since i have been using asus mb's for some time the quality of the boards would stay at a high level. running odds i assume perhaps i was due. i just did not think it would happen with my asus mb. least of all a mother board mb that is supposedly checked so many times.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear James,

I am sorry that you are having issues with your RAM slots and the inconvenience it caused you. Are you still within Newegg's return policy? If so, you can get it exchanged for another board. If you happen to be out of Newegg's return policy, another option is you can submit an RMA and have it replaced at ASUS has a 3 year warranty on motherboards. If you need any further assistance, feel free to contact me at and I will help you to the best of my abilities. Your case # for reference is N150675442
Thanks for choosing ASUS

5 out of 5 eggsBest Value

Pros: Price and Performance.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I did not need the latest and greatest of technology. What I did need was an upgrade to a failing Gigabyte x58 motherboard at a reasonable price. This product has what I need. The board is fast and stable. It came with BIOS 2004. I went ahead and flashed it to 2103. Using this with a Xeon E3 1231 V3, 16gb Patriot C9, Zalman 9900 CNPS Max Blue Cooler, PC Power and Cooling Silencer MK II 750 watt power supply, Crucial 250gb ssd, Plextor M5 Pro 256gb ssd, WD 1TB for storage, and a EVGA 670 FTW video card. Passmark scores the setup at 5073. Not the highest but high enough. The CPU score is 10020. I had thought about upgrading the video card, but I will wait for the next generation cards to come out and then decide. Overall this is one fantastic system. I did not really need overclocking or to spend the money for the X99 and the power usage that would bring. The power usage on the z87 has gone down significantly from the x58. My final cost for the motherboard will be $104.99 after rebate. That is more that half off for the same level of performance of the z97. LOL. Works for me. Highly Recommended.

4 out of 5 eggsBoard: good, Thermal Armor: bulky

Pros: -Lots of good IO on the back
-TUF components and bracing
-UEFI is easy to use
-8 SATA ports
-BIOS Flashback

Cons: -AI Suite 3 is glitchy, locks up every now again on my 8.1 rig
-Thermal Armor was too bulky and in the way to install my Cooler Master T4 (parallel to the rear IO shield)
-Screw holes for mounting the board to a case are behind the Thermal Armor, so you kinda have to drop the screw into the hole if you don't use a magnetic screwdriver. Next time, maybe put a standoff in the thermal armor to guide the screw.
-Assist fans are a little loud for my taste, but aren't too bad.

Other Thoughts: -Had to update the board out of the box to work with my i7-4790K Flashback saved my skin on this one.
-RAM was unusually hard to put in. The first time i installed it, the computer didn't post, so I went to the RAM and really had to push down on it.
-Thermal armor is visually appealing, will more than likely paint soon.
-Considering ways that i can modify the Thermal Armor so I can mount my cooler fan how I'd wanted.

Pros out weight the cons for me!
