1 out of 5 eggsPOC Motherboard

Pros: I should have known better after reading the numerous reviews stating this board arrived DOA. To make a long story short, assembled the motherboard with new processor and power supply and all it will do is spin the fan for 1 second then nothing. No beeps or error codes, so I am sending it back .

Cons: Dead on Arrival - must pay the expense of having to return it.

5 out of 5 eggsASUS is KING!

Pros: - Does what ASUS says it can
- No issues with faulty firmware or other malfunctions
- UEFI is clean and functional
- Handles the hardware I've thrown at it (Haswell i7-4770k, HyperX RAM w/ XMP profile at 1600 MHz, GeForce GTX 780 Ti, Corsair AX860 PSU)
- Great bang for buck
- AI Suite 3 makes software-assisted overclocking very easy and shows gobs of data pertaining to temperature status and other info on the board

Cons: - Included driver disk that claims to have Windows 8.1 drivers caused so many BSOD's on a Windows 8.1 install, I had to reinstall Windows and obtain drivers from support.asus.com - see my other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: I chose this motherboard to run a high-performance multimedia/gaming PC that I assembled in January 2014. This system has been actively used for about a year and one week at the time of this review. As mentioned above, I've really not had any issues with this board. It has done everything I've asked of it, and appears to be capable of everything ASUS advertises. I like the gold accenting. It isn't flashy, but more of a dull gold. It looks good from the window in my Fractal Design Define R4.

The UEFI is very clean and functional, but certain sub-menus can look a little cluttered. I've thrown a Haswell i7-4770k, 16GB of HyperX Black RAM with the XMP profile set to 1600 MHz, EVGA's Superclocked GeForce GTX 780 Ti with ACX Cooling and Corsair's AX860 modular PSU at this board and it's handled it like a champ. AI Suite 3 makes it easy to get a general overview of what's going on with the board. You can also use AI Suite 3 to perform a software overclock. I know a lot of people like spending hours upon hours bouncing between Windows and the BIOS tweaking the overclock themselves, but this is a great alternative to those of us who don't know squat about overclocking. It performs plenty of stress testing, and my particular CPU (remember, no two CPUs are really the same) was able to be overclocked from Intel's stock 3.4 GHz to a nice 4.5 GHz. I ran Prime95 for a few hours and it was a very solid overclock.

The ONLY issue I encountered was back when I originally set this board up in January 2014. I had a fresh install of Windows 8.1 on a Samsung 840 EVO SSD, and I tried to use the included driver disc that was labeled as including Windows 8.1 drivers to set up the system. I installed the included Intel chipset drivers, and not only did I receive a Blue Screen of Death in the middle of install, every time I tried to reboot the system I'd get a Blue Screen of Death. I have no clue if ASUS mislabeled the disc or if Intel shipped incorrect/faulty drivers. I reinstalled Windows 8.1, downloaded driver's from support.asus.com, installed via a USB drive and all is well. You shouldn't use the included driver disc anyways (unless you have to!), so I was probably asking for that issue.

Overall, it's a very solid board. I'm thinking about building a Broadwell system this year. Regardless of if I build that Broadwell system or use this one for another three or so years, I will more than likely use an ASUS board again. Logan from Tek Syndicate showed me this board and he has nothing but positive things to say about ASUS boards. The videos he did with JJ from ASUS demonstrating AI Suite 3 and the other features were pretty much what sold me on it. ASUS makes excellent hardware at an affordable price point, and as such, I do not regret my decision buying their Z87-PRO board. It's excellent value for money.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Motherboard!

Pros: 1. Very easy to navigate BIOS.
2. Easy to update.
3. Packaged well.
4. Great customer support

Cons: 1 Did not come with updated BIOS (as expected, but would have been sweet)
2. Back USB ports don't seem to work for me? Could be that I'm running on Linux, but ASUS customer support has been very helpful.

Other Thoughts: Great motherboard to pick up, especially for a newbie! BIOS can be difficult to understand at first, but ASUS motherboard's BIOS has always been the most user friendly to me. I'll always recommend ASUS boards!

2 out of 5 eggsThis board blew up my peripherals

Pros: The board has a ton of USB slots, PCI slots, 5 fan connections, and PS/2 support that I really wish I didn't have to use. The bios has a ton of configurable options that I don't know how to use, but was really easy to flash.

My favorite feature is the power-on button that's directly on the board. It also has a similar button that will check your memory.

Cons: Getting the USB ports to work was an eXtreme headache. I couldn't find any conclusive support for the issue and I have no idea how I fixed it.

By the end of the day, it blew up my logitech headset and my USB flash drive. Yeah, the important one. I'll be calling their support soon, but money can't replace data.

Other Thoughts: The I/O cover also looks nice.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Looks good.

Cons: First one DOA, got a 2nd one but 2 of the memory slots didn't work, sent it back to ASUS due to the 30day newegg warranty. Hope the 3rd time is the charm. Never had problems with ASUS, first time.

Other Thoughts: Customer support at ASUS and newegg were pretty cool.

5 out of 5 eggsreview

Pros: all the bells and whistles I was looking for and a good price.

Cons: doesn't have the gamer priority like the newer version does but I knew that before buying and from what I've seen of that feature it doesn't make all that noticeable of a difference.

Other Thoughts: color scheme coulda been better

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Board with a little help

Pros: Extremely fast and solid.

Cons: As stated by Eric S. the motherboard USB 3 slots don't overly care for Keyboard and Mice, I simply grabbed a USB2 Backplate from an earlier board plugged it into the connectors at the bottom of the board.

I have not had an issue with the board since.

Other Thoughts: I would have liked some notification by Asus or Newegg that a new generation was going to be releases 60 days after the x87 were released.
