3 out of 5 eggsCame with my I7 4790k

Pros: - its a nice board
- takes OC ram up to 3000
- it's a long board with 2 PCI-E slots for SLI ready GPUs
- can overclock the board for performance (Don't really need to)

Cons: - Came with this weird thing that I don't even use
- Has a problem on start up if you're overclocking your ram and your board. I have to fully power off the PSU with the backswitch and then turn it on again to get the motherboard to read my CPU/SSD/HDD. Sometimes I'll have to drop my ram to 1600mhz because it has a problem overclocking sometimes

Other Thoughts: I'm using it because it was better than my m5a97 board I used with FX 6300. I never had any problems with my previous board like this one but it's not like I'm gonna cry and ditch my comp for it. I'll use it until I get a better board that is capable of DDR4 Ram

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for sharing your review on your ASUS Product. I'm sorry to hear about your start up problems and please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this experience has caused. Is your memory and power supply verified on our ASUS Qualified Vendor's List? Make sure to reseat your components and double check all your power cords to check for any loose wiring in your rig. For the most recent microcode for your CPU, download and install the UEFI build version 2005 for optimal system compatibility. Before using the new Intel 4th Gen Core processors, we suggest that you first download the BIOS updater for new Intel 4th Gen Core Processors and then update the BIOS using this tool. BIOS updater for New 4th Gen Intel Core Processors can be located on our Online ASUS Help Desk at: https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/Z87A_NFC_EXPRESS_EDITION/HelpDesk_Download/. If you have any further questions, you can contact me at cl-nestor@asus.com.

Thank you for choosing ASUS,

3 out of 5 eggsNever got to use it

Pros: Has all the connections that i was looking for.

Cons: FYI to all who is looking at this mobo... it is compatible with the 4th gen i series processors after the bios has been updated. There is no USB flash available on this so you have to have another processor that it can used to get the system installed and update the bios once you have windows installed. After that you can install your 4th gen i series processor.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for taking the time to inform us on your ASUS experience. I'm sorry to hear about the issues you've experienced with installing your 4th Gen Processor. Before using the new Intel 4th Gen Core processors, we suggest that you first download the BIOS updater for new Intel 4th Gen Core Processors and then update the BIOS using this tool.http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/LGA1150/Z87-C/BIOS_updater_for_4th_Gen_Intel_Core_CPU.zip?_ga=1.93589141.904184548.1458578930. Once you have downloaded the BIOS updater tool, then proceed with downloading and installing UEFI build Version (2005). Let your system update the firmware as needed. Do not power down even if your system sits with a blank screen for 10 minutes or so. When updating your UEFI please make sure to wait for the firmware to update after the board restarts following the flash. This can take a couple of minutes after the board restarts. The board should be left alone during this process. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me at cl-nestor@asus.com

4 out of 5 eggsGood product, easy to configure the UEFI firmware.

Pros: I like the layout of this board, it has PCI, and PCIE slots if you have still PCI devices.
The ability to login with the supplied NFC interface is neat.

Cons: I had lots of trouble downloading software to an industrial touch panel. I keep getting software failed to download, on investigating the cause, it turns out the I/O shield don't provide proper grounding for the USB ports. I never had that problem with the board it replaced, P5Q-E.

Other Thoughts: Don't get me wrong, I love the board, as long as you are not using it with devices sensitive to grounding noise you'll be OK.
One thing I would change is the I/O shield.

5 out of 5 eggsPleasantly surprised

Pros: - BIOS came already updated for Devil's Canyon CPU's (see below).
- No bent pins
- Worked SOOB.

Cons: - RAM slots are a little close to the mount, especially when using an aftermarket cooler. I slapped a 510 Evo in this and was glad I had the foresight to put the memory in before I attached the fan.
- Can't make a proper jambalaya.
- The NFC Express... ehrm... thing isn't well-supported, especially outside of Windows.

Other Thoughts: I bought this as a combo deal with an Intel i5 4690K Devil's Canyon. After I went for that deal, I quickly realized that this was a Z87 board, not a Z97, and started to worry. What if I brick it while flashing? What am I losing by not having a more up-to-date motherboard? Turns out my worries were completely unfounded. The BIOS recognized the CPU immediately.

I still wish the BIOS would recognize a Logitech wireless keyboard...

2 out of 5 eggsSomewhere between Meh and junk.

Pros: It works just fine, but it is far from special in any way.
Cheap.I got this board basically for free as a combo with a 4790k.

Cons: Gets super hot.
Does not overclock well at all.
Horrible yellowish baby poop color.
NFC reader that came with it is completely and utterly useless. It works, sometimes, and when it does it takes several tries to get it to read. It is slower than using a password, so i pretty much just dumped it.
iOS app is total garbage.

Other Thoughts: If I didn't get this board for basically nothing I would never buy it or recommend it.

4 out of 5 eggsNFCless would have been okay too

Pros: Looks really nice,

Runs super cool because of quality vrm,

SLI/Crossfire support,

Amazing price,

The bios is super easy to use,

I saw this board featured on Linus tech tips and am super proud of owning it just for that reason

Cons: *the nfc adapter is worthless. Not because it doesn't work, it does, but the software with it is absolutely unusable. Not a single function works. They connect, but can't interact. At least it adds 2 USB 3.0 ports to my IO that i can easily reach.

*there are some capicitors in weird places around the CPU socket that may inhibit your ability to mount certain coolers, i bought a zalman cps9900max-b and couldn't use it because i just couldn't fit the plate on for the screws as stuff was in the way. I knew it was compatible, and could even see the holes line up, but there was nothing i could do because of those components in the way.

Other Thoughts: If its still on sale, buy this thing right away. you won't regret it.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: The Q-connector makes connecting the buttons and LEDs a lot easier.

BIOS setup allows you to use the mouse as well as the keyboard.

Plenty of SATA connectors.

Cons: More rear-panel USB ports would have been nice, but there are plenty of connectors if your case can use them.

The board is a little on the small side, and some of the connectors may be a little hard to reach if you put your cards in first, especially something like a huge video card.

Other Thoughts: I bought my first ASUS board six years ago, and that's all I buy now.

1 out of 5 eggsNot what I expected from Asus

Pros: Cheap, Intel chipset

Cons: Strange incompatibility with Haswell processors preventing a system reboot. Restarting can only be accomplished with a manual power off\power on operation. If you are running Windows, this is a major issue. Updating to latest BIOS does not fix the problem. I have been building PCs for 20+ years and never encountered anything like this. Furthermore, there are many people having the same issue with this board. Do your homework before buying this MB.

Other Thoughts: This MB/CPU was sold by Newegg as a bundle deal.
