1 out of 5 eggsAlways loved Asus!

Pros: (This is an old review, MB has major documented longevity issues, stay away)
Everything. Just built a new system with this as my MB, and there is absolutely everything to love about it.

Cons: (This is an old review, MB has major documented longevity issues, stay away)
Nothing. If you know what you're doing you won't have any cons either 99% of the time. EDIT: Until it just breaks like hundreds of the same models...

Other Thoughts: UPDATE - What a disappointment! Two years later, like hundreds of online reviews the Z87 won't post, dreaded red light problems plaguing these motherboards -- takes 30 minutes of powerbutton presses until it boots then you don't want to shut it dow.

I called Asus and their service was terrible, the guy was very annoyed/rude and his only "solution" was me waiting 3 weeks after I send it to them to "fix it". Being my work PC this is unacceptable as I need to use it every day - I've been forced to buy another motherboard. Besides, I'd never trust "this" motherboard in any other builds based on all the overwhelming evidence of failures by these boards.

I replaced this board with an ASROCK Z97 Extreme 6, and as expected it's flawless.

I've built systems with every major MB manufacturer over the 20 years since I started building them. Always was an Asus supporter, no more.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Mobo

Pros: -Great customer service
-supported dual 8x pcie
-many fan headers
-easy to navigate BIOS

Cons: -gimmicky software suite
-built in overclocker often overestimated the capability of my chip causing many crashes
-ugly colors

Other Thoughts: Great motherboard, have had it for almost 3 years now and its working great! I even smashed a 4pin fan header and it still works fine so this thing can take a beating. Sorry to everyone who's had a bad experience with this board I cant really say anything objectively bad about it.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible Motherboard

Pros: Worked fine while it lasted

Cons: As others have stated, motherboard does not boot reliably after two years of use. Boot device led indicator remains on 90% of boot ups. I would stay away from this product as well as any other ASUS products based on their customer service and build quality. I use to purchase ASUS products but now will consider other higher end brands.

Stay away unless you want to replace a year or two down the line.

2 out of 5 eggs2 year ASUS Z87-A

Pros: Very easy to set up - has mouse support in BIOS, many OC pre-sets.
Power button on the MoBo (no need to connect to chassis power button while testing)
Nice organizer for front panel connections.

Cons: Lasted only 2 years.
Almost exactly 2 years after purchase, stopped booting up reliably after a full shutdown. On startup it now finds random problems: sometimes BOOT_DEVICE_LED stays on, sometimes POST tells me that the KB is not detected, etc.
Thankfully, it goes to sleep and wakes up, and restarts with no problems.

Other Thoughts: Was nice while it lasted.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Anatoly,

I am sorry that your motherboard stopped working after 2 years. Fortunately, if you did not know, ASUS offers 3 year warranty on our motherboards. You can submit an RMA and have it replaced at

1 out of 5 eggsMotherboard fried after less than 2 years

Pros: Works fine until it breaks

Cons: Nearly lit my computer on fire.

Other Thoughts: A lot of people are clearly having issues 1 to 2 years after purchase. Today my computer started smoking. Clearly an issue with my motherboard as my PSU was fine. Don't get this product if you want a motherboard that will last.

1 out of 5 eggsDidn't make it even 2 yrs

Pros: good price

Cons: Always had sleep issues and issues with it coming back online after a full power down. It finally stopped posting today. 1.5 yrs later.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Benjamin,

I am extremely sorry that your motherboard died on you. Can you please elaborate when you mean it stopped POSTing? Are the fans still powered? Can you try taking the motherboard out of your case and test it on a non-conductive anti-static test bench, and see if the problem still persists? You can submit an RMA and have it replaced at if you are convinced that your motherboard is no longer working. ASUS has a 3 year warranty on motherboards.

4 out of 5 eggsGood motherboard, but unintuitive building with it

Pros: Does its job great after setup

Cons: Setting up with this motherboard was a pain. Buyer beware, you cannot boot with the graphics card installed first, as you will not get a signal output from either integrated graphics or the card itself. After about an hour of troubleshooting, we only were able to get the BIOS menu when we were using integrated graphics only with no card plugged in. If you do not get a signal to your monitor(s) on the first boot, don't assume a faulty motherboard; use the integrated graphics to get to BIOS, then force the motherboard to boot only with integrated graphics in order to plug the video card in to get your drivers. Then, install your drivers and go back into BIOS and force the motherboard to boot automatically to either graphics option and you should be good to go. The motherboard
You also need to download a Realtek driver to get audio to work off of the rear I/O port.

Other Thoughts: After setup, motherboard does its job great and I haven't had any issues yet.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat motherboard at a great price.

Pros: -Really nice looking and intuitive BIOS
-everything functions properly
-installation was easy and smooth
-memOK! feature very useful for debugging
-would definitely buy again.

Cons: none to speak of.

Other Thoughts: -uses 6 mounting points, so it doesn't seem like a full ATX motherboard, but it doesn't really matter.
-only has 4 connectors for powering fans +1 for cpu. Not a con for most people, but I like lots of fans.
