Thermal Armor with Flow Valve
Sabertooth Z87 Total Airflow-Boosting Heat Dissipation

Covers the entire board and features dual fans to direct cool air to critical parts and dissipate heat faster for better stability. Drastically boosts airflow and cooling with dual fans and a smart shunt design that draws hot air away from critical components. Air power is improved with a back I/O fan that pulls in cold air and expels even more heat. The exclusive flow valve design controls heatpipe air contact, better-utilizing liquid cooling setups.
Thermal Radar 2
Complete System Cooling, Customized Fan Tuning

With multiple onboard sensors and bundled thermistor cables, you can monitor temperatures in real-time in areas around key components other than the motherboard itself. Customizable fan control gives you the flexibility of adjusting fan speeds manually and achieving optimal thermal tuning with one click.

4 out of 5 eggsNot what I was expecting

Pros: Just absolutely gorgeous board. This was the last one before the look went sort of cartoonish.

It supports Devil's Canyon.

Cons: Mine came with a backplate from an Asetek closed loop watercooler installed. First time I've seen something like that.

Compared to the ROG heroVII this is a rather plain board in terms of feature set (it's supposed to be, but it could have been more anyway).

5 out of 5 eggsA GREAT BUY!

Pros: Amazing feature set.
$50 savings over purchasing new
Sexy yet tough looking design A+

Cons: Haswell CPU's require a manual bios update in order to even get it to post... How do you update the bios without getting into the bios? I asked the same question. The manual was a little vague so I called tech support for my simple question and was on hold for over an hour. Finally figured it out on my own and the rep picks up 3 seconds after... pfft.

1 out of 5 eggsI wouldn't recommend

Pros: -Looks good
-Lots of airflow under the "armour"

Cons: -Broke within a year, still waiting on what the problem was, what really annoyed me was the customer service which cost me over 75$ to contact and ship my product under warranty, not wanting to assist me with the hefty price in calling them.. I guess you can say i'm not enjoying my broken motherboard and my the service i received.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid so far - some modding for fans suggested

Pros: Backplate great for providing rigidity
solid range of i/o + expansion features

Cons: thermal shield seems 'gimmicky' and makes installation of mobo into case a little tricky. Did not come with onboard fans, see other thoughts

Other Thoughts: The aesthetics of the Sabertooth line is going to be up to individual taste, but most of the physical features provided are nice to have, especially the reinforcing backplate that resists mobo sag. Performance has been solid so far, no complaints about the bios and the usb bios updater and the thermal probe features are nice to have.

The 'thermal armour' seems like a bit of a gimmick though, and the added thickness makes screwing the mobo onto the case standoffs a little bit tricky. Also, getting a refurb did not include the onboard fans - that said, the stock fans are supposedly quite loud and obnoxious and not really worth using anyway. Instead I put a small 40mm Noctua fan behind the i/o panel, bit of a tight fit but it promotes the intended air flow while being very quiet. Alternatively you could try removing the armour entirely - I haven't attempted this so I can't speak to how difficult it is to do.

1 out of 5 eggsAbandon all hope.

Pros: Looks cool.

Cons: Lasted only 16 months under extremely light use.
Horrible customer service.

Other Thoughts: If your idea of customer service are lies and an endless run around then ASUS is for you!

They have missed every promised deadline. (3 so far)
They have issued an advanced RMA for my prematurely defective product and yet despite 5 nights of phone calls totaling 6 hours and returning all of their paperwork, nothing has been shipped.
They seem to keep finding reasons why they just cant ship it. All you have to do is complete just one more thing.....

If these things sound like fun then hit the add to cart button and buckle up!

Seriously though, great looking paperweight.

1 out of 5 eggsSabertooth MB Gamble

Pros: High Reviews of "Sabertooth" MB

Cons: Mine DOA. Not all accessories included, i.e. MB 35mm fans, (moderately important because of thermal shielding design/air-flow path). as well was missing other perhaps non-essential but listed items.

Attempted w/ Intel Core i7-4790K Haswell Quad-Core 4.0GHz LGA 1150 Desktop Processor BX80646I74790K, and GSkill 4G RAM, all of which showed up on either or both MB recommendation and Memory/CPU compatible sites.
Error noted: Red CPU light. No beep on external speaker. CPU tested good when operated in comparable MB.

Other Thoughts: No more refurb's for me. I'll spend the money!

1 out of 5 eggsGreat Board, wish it worked

Pros: Unable to say.

Cons: Item arrived damaged. Two pins on the CPU socket were pressed against the board and the socket cover was out of place. Sad to say, I was extremely excited to give this board a go.

5 out of 5 eggsBest-In-Class

Pros: I got this board figuring that it was one of the best 1550 chip-sets around and I was correct! The direct boot feature is amazing especially when you can't get to the delete key or F2 key quickly, you can press the button and boot directly into the BIOS.

Cons: none yet, probably that the SATA ports are right-to-left, down-to-up instead of left-to-right, up-to-down

Other Thoughts: I would highly recommend this board to anybody, the dust covers for the PCI slots is a great touch especially if you live in a house that collects a LOT of dust
