5 out of 5 eggsGreat intel board

3 out of 5 eggsDisappointed in workmanship

Pros: Ran solid for six months

Cons: Heatsink missing pin, and fell completely off motherboard after 6 months

Other Thoughts: I bought this board because of the HardOCP rating, and it hasn't disappointed, until now. Of course, it being ASUS, I assumed I was getting top quality.

This week, Windows 7 started alerting me to my C:/ drive failing, and needing replacement. Hoping it was a loose cable, I open my case to find a heatsink laying in the bottom. The heatsink over the chips between the CPU socket and I/O ports only had one pin (the bottom one), and the thermal tape had finally given way. I scoured the inside of the case, even removing the graphics card and power supply, to make sure I wasn't missing the second pin, and it's nowhere to be found.

5 out of 5 eggsASUS Z87-A

Pros: 7 months of use with no problems.
I am impressed with the Intel BIOS.
Has everything I need.
ASUS quality is great as usual.

Cons: Could use a few more USB3.0 expansion slots.

Other Thoughts: First Intel board; I've used only AMD up to date. Intel CPUs are easier to install.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Stable and fast. Boot up went fine. With a custom 120mm fan the motherboard thought it was running too slow but adjusted the new bios setting low threshold and worked great. All runs great and cool.

Cons: The two PCI-e 16x slots are directly above the two pci slots. Inevitably you're going to loose one or both of the pci slots as most decent video cards are wide enough to cover the neighbor slot also.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you have the latest BIOS.

5 out of 5 eggsNo complaints here.

Pros: Has everything I need, especially the PCI 3.0, which seemed hard to find when I was considering an AMD build instead of Intel.

Cons: Nothing really other than MAYBE the placement of SATA connectors relative to the PCI slots. The GeForce GTX 760 gfx card leaves it cramped for my SSD/HDD connections.

5 out of 5 eggsGood board for the money

Pros: Worked right out of the box. The only issue I had was with a Samsung 240GB SSD drive installed. The system board would give non bootable device errors when booting up at times and sometimes Win 7 would reboot for no reasons. I updated the BIOS on MB and all drivers and issue was resolved.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this board for the device options the board has and the price.

1 out of 5 eggsNot again

Pros: motherboard maker is a great company with great costumer support

Cons: This product would not go past BIOS. Put it all together would not boot past bios. When I called Manufacture they told me it was a firmware problem and I needed to send it back. Shipped it back to this. This company told me I had damaged the motherboards CPU slots. after it had read my CPU ram and everything else I don't know how that can happen but ok. Any good product buy somewhere else.

Manufacturer Response:

Greetings,

I am sorry that you are having issues in this matter. At your earliest convenience, please contact me through email regarding this case. Within the email, please include both the RMA number and serial number. 3573547.

Regards,

3 out of 5 eggsSome Problems Here And There

Pros: It works fine for me now.

Cons: - When I first started my outer build to make sure all my components were okay, it worked perfectly fine, but when I installed it into my case it took a lot of arranging/removing wires for it to finally start.

- I can't plug in the chassis fans to manage the speeds in to the motherboard without it freaking out and booting at all.

- After unpacking the motherboard, one of the reset pins were bent.

Other Thoughts: Careful of what you buy, always read the reviews first, and make sure you know what you're getting yourself into.

Overall, good motherboard except for the start-up issues. Although I am fearful that if I try to start up my computer one day, it won't boot.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't gamble with this board

Pros: Looks nice?

Cons: DoA with bent pins.

Other Thoughts: Customer Support wasn't helpful at all. Like everyone else, I received this product with bent pins out of the box. Was told the replacement was about $120. Was told the damage was end user's. Newegg nor Asus would help even though bent pins seem to be a common issue with this board.
