4 out of 5 eggsGood...bit overboard

Pros: Runs great, compatible, lots of ports and slots available, extra software, easily upgraded for BIOS, RAM, etc

Cons: Has a lot of bloatware that can pop up and is hard to get rid of

Other Thoughts: This is a great Motherboard. Asus always does good work in my opinion. I have some issues with how much extra software is involved, and had some initial driver issues, but the board works great now and I haven't had any true issues. The software is great if you really want to monitor every aspect of your computer, but I never got the EZ Update to work and I ended up uninstalling as much of it as possible. I really liked the fan and temperature monitoring software though.

As a motherboard, this is a great one if you are getting a new Haswell chip and you want everything without paying too much.

2 out of 5 eggsOnly 6 Usable SATA Ports

Pros: Overclocks well. Seems to be running stable with an overclock. Tons of features available in the BIOS.

Cons: I had two boards die on me within 30 days. The third one seems to be playing nicely with me, but I discovered a major con a little too late. When the ASMedia ASM1061 storage controller is enabled, my system suffers from a major lag/stutter issue -- to the point where my computer becomes unusable; the ASMedia storage controller is enabled by default. I've update the BIOS twice since I've owned this motherboard (bios revision 1802, 2003 and 2005), and the issue remains. The only way around the problem is to disable the ASMedia storage controller, but of course it leaves you with only 6 SATA ports (versus the 8 you would normally get by updating to a Z87 motherboard). I've unplugged all PCI-E devices, except for my 280X, hoping it might just be a PCI-E lane issue, but no change. I've emailed ASUS on the issue, and hopefully it might get resolved before the Z87 chipset gets ignored and becomes a thing of the past.

Other Thoughts: Aside from the two duds I received, I like ASUS. I'd be willing to give them another try on a future upgrade, given they actually provide BIOS updates for their previous boards.

5 out of 5 eggsSurprisingly good

Pros: Stable, lay out is intuitive and easy to use. Manual is barebones but functional. Also surprisingly durable considering the mistakes I made in relearning how to build haha.

What I am surprised the most by is all the normal junk programs that comes with most mobos in this case is actually very useful. The Asus AI Suite is easy to use and helpful especially with the Fan Xpert option. You can overclock your rig in real time without going into your Bios.

Speaking of BIOs, the UEFI BIOs is a great idea and is also very user friendly.

Cons: I got this board on a great deal and sale but again I'd have to say its price. Compared to its competitors Asus always tends to be a little pricier and despite all the cool extra features this board has, most motherboards in the same class tend to perform the same (check out the benchmarks). I am perfectly content with this but other people might have tighter budgets.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Mobo

Pros: I love the WiFi antenna that comes with it. Saved me from running an ethernet cable across my room.

The BIOS is very straight forward and very "EZ" :)

Cons: I like the gold, but I wish they had a blue version. It would've matched my case and ram better. But I'm not too picky about that, as long as it runs well - which it does.

5 out of 5 eggsCPU cooling fan connectors

Pros: The z87Pro is a typical ASUS MB, well built and very pretty.

Cons: The CPU OPT cooling connector for a liquid cooler is not installed even though the MB has provisions and is labeled for the connector.

Other Thoughts: I am anxious to see the next ASUS MB, z97?

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome board

Pros: Great overclocking board right out of the box, no issues. Wifi is cool but I prefer Ethernet for my main desktop. The Dual Intelligent Processors 4 for Four Way Optimization program that overclocks the entire system is very very very cool!! I wanted an overclocked system but didn't want to spend hours doing it like the old days, this did the trick and probably better than I would have.
Plenty of fan headers (x4 cases fans + CPU fan header) to allow the Fan Expert2 program integrated with Dual Intelligent Processors to tweak your OC to the best settings based on your equipment.
Lots of Sata connectors and USB connectors.
Asus put a lot of thought and planning into these Z87 boards, well done Asus!!!

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Board

Pros: Wifi is a great option, OC capabilities are there and work great. Everything works great, Bios is ez mode.......

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I won't make this a con because its really not an issue, BUUUUT not a fan of the new gold, i get the whole gold standard thing but they should make the platinum standard wink wink, just a thought

4 out of 5 eggsUpdated Review

Pros: Easy setup, flashing the BIOS is simple, looks nice and fits nice, tons of features for the price.

Cons: Doesn't detect memory speed properly, SATA connectors can be very difficult to get to if your case has the P/S at the bottom.

Other Thoughts: I originally rated this mobo with 1 Egg due to the fact that the initial board that was shipped to me came DOA. I have since received the replacement board from Newegg via the RMA process. The replacement board worked flawlessly out of the box. What keeps this board from getting top marks is the fact that it didn't detect my memory correctly (not the first time I've had this issue on an ASUS board, but it is easily overcome) and the fact that the SATA connectors are bunched up at the bottom of the board and tough to get to in my case. Having the connectors a couple of millimeters above the board, oriented the same way, would have solved this problem. Other than that, this board has performed wonderfully and the built in wi-fi is top notch.
