CPU Performance boost

TPU

Unleash your PC's full performance with a simple two-phase onboard switch or the ASUS AI Suite 3 utility! The Turbo Processor Unit (TPU) offers precise voltage control and advanced monitoring for the CPU and the graphics card, enabling great freedom to adjust CPU frequencies and ratios for optimized performance and to exploit the potential out of your graphics card*.



All-Around Energy Efficiency

TRENDnet

EPU

With the Energy Processing Unit (EPU) you will enjoy from system-wide real-time power savings, controlled via a simple onboard switch or the AI Suite 3 utility. EPU detects and adjusts power consumption according to the PC's needs — automatically. It can also reduce CPU wattage to an indicated level or enjoy even more savings with Away Mode, which creates an extreme energy-saving scenario by shutting down unused extra I/O controllers and reduces the graphics cards' power level while you're away, so the PC consumes only the energy it needs — and not a drop more!



Advanced Fan Controls for Ultimate Cooling and Quietness

TRENDnet

Fan Xpert 3

Fan Xpert 3 puts 4-pin & 3-pin CPU and case fan controls in one place. It scans each fan's characteristics and delivers custom settings for each fan based on the dedicated area temperatures detected by hardware thermal sensors. Make sure every fan achieves the best balance of cooling performance and low noise. Fan Xpert 3 supports hardware-level PWM/DC combo mode for both the CPU and case fans. It even can reduce the CPU fan speed to below the default minimum, for extra-quiet and power saving operation during light loads.

Intel® Gigabit Ethernet — Top Gaming Choice that Goes Faster with Your CPU

Faster, smoother gaming – always. Intel® Gigabit Ethernet has the serious double advantage of communicating directly with CPUs and offering high TCP and UDP throughput. This significantly reduces the processor's workload, so there's more power for your game and your gameplay.

UDP Game-Data Performance Up to Two Times Faster

ASUS engineers used IxChariot, an independent network-assessment test tool, to determine just how much quicker Intel Gigabit Ethernet deals with the smaller (sub-256 byte) UDP data packets that are vital for responsive gaming. The results are in — and with Z97 your game-data packets flow up to two times (2X) faster than competing gaming-LAN technologies!

4 out of 5 eggsMotherboard for everyone

Pros: Fast setup. Easy to config. Easy to setup. Config easy wizard safety settings for limits.
Fan configs.
Overclocking

Cons: If your missing anything don't install it, New egg will won't a return even for simply Sata cables or anything else missing.
Loose motherboard hook ups, for front panel power, LED, reset... Very loose. (Q-Connector kit) I would only use to setup the cables then unplug and plug directly into motherboard.

Other Thoughts: This is a switchable and auto overclocker.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Pleased

Pros: In terms of features vs price, this board fit the bill perfectly for what I wanted. Having SATA Express and M.2 on the same board is fantastic, I want my system to be as future proof as possible, and if one of the emerging standards ends up being more popular in the end, I'll be set either way.

BIOS is full of features, easy on the eyes, good OC capabilities. Spent a lot of time here tweaking OC settings.

An unexpected benefit to this board was the heatsink design - the flat design on top of the heatsinks just barely allowed clearance when installing an H100i in my Fractal R4 case. They're only about as tall as the top of the RAM levers, which are of standard height. Any taller, or rounded tops, and it wouldn't have fit!

Otherwise, The board has no lack of other connections such as SATA, USB 3.0, expansion slots, etc. Z97 chipset is also a big plus, support for next gen CPUs is a good thing, though with a 4790k in my system I seriously doubt I'll upgrade until I put together a whole new build.

Cons: No real complaints to speak of here. The back panel could have squeezed in a couple more USB 3.0 ports, but what's supplied is already plenty.

Other Thoughts: I'm the type that prefers to build one quality system to last for a few years instead of updating often, and this board fit the bill perfectly. Having both emerging storage standards, plenty of features, quality build, was everything I was looking for.

Dropped a i7 4790k with H100i and on this board was able to achieve a nice stable overclock of 4.7ghz on 1.290v. I'm sure I could have pushed the CPU a bit more, but like I said I want my build to last, and this CPU @ 4.7 ghz isn't going to struggle with anything for a long time.

5 out of 5 eggsA Beauty of a Board

Pros: This is the MoBo i wanted for my workstation. I have bought 4 of the ASUS Z97-A boards and those perform just Super. With a i7-4790 Haswell on the other boards i saw no need to get the i7-4790K as this CPU can be overclocked with the proper RAM even if not like the 'K' series. This motherboard has all the features i was looking for and the 6 SATA 6.GB/s ports is one of the more determining factors as i will RAID 2 WD 1TB Red drives and have another SATA for backing up to. The board is esthetically pleasing to the eye and has the functions most would want with many options for Video cards and has excellent RAM Support from 1600 to 3200 - i chose the 2400 because of the timing and stability of the Kingston HyperX Genesis series. 16 gig is just fine for my purposes and the board is perfectly suitable for this RAM.
The BIOS is so easy to adjust different areas i just love the ASUS style and functions it has in place.
Can't beat a Great Board unless you get the Higher End ASUS Z97-WS which is a Monster with the 'K' Series CPU

Cons: None wish i had gotten it sooner

Other Thoughts: Did not come with Reflective Sunglasses and a Soda

4 out of 5 eggsOne Driver To Rule Them All; One Driver To Bind Them...

Pros: First Intel build after 13 years of AMD loyalty; another great piece of Asus engineering; has my 4790K running smoothy; recognized the two sticks of G.Skill Trident PC2400 ram; tons of OC options that I haven't even scratched yet. AI 3 monitoring/OC suite is fabulous.

Cons: Intel SATA driver. Out of the six SATA ports, two of them are 6 GB AsusMedia ports (Marvell? Don't know...), the other 4 are Intel 6 GB SATA ports. Included CD drivers DID NOT install a proper Intel SATA driver... Set up my 500GB Samsung Evo boot drive over the AsusMedia lines, no problem, but it tested out horribly... slow... and the Intel ports wouldn't recognize the SSD properly (Win 8.1 64-bit). Had to download an updated driver from Asus support & MANUALLY install the correct SATA driver to solve the issue. All fine and well in the end, but seems a bit primitive for 2014/ Win 8.1 era....

Other Thoughts: Have to write the next review of how I got the Corsair H50 liquid cooler to fit the mobo... worth the effort, I haven't seen a temp over 36 deg. C yet...

5 out of 5 eggsAlways go Asus

Pros: Another solid asus motherboard, plenty of options for different configurations

Cons: Tried matching the gold color with some corsair memory, if you care I'd recommend getting the silver color or whatever other color cause the gold just doesnt come close. I enjoy customizing

5 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely Awsome

Pros: Very easy to set up. Of course even with reading the manual 3 times cover to cover I still have a lot to experience. 5 Way optimization was supurb. Easily overclocked an i5 3670 haswell 3.4Mhz to 4.4 Mhz.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: I'd like a little more documentation on tpu and ep settings.

1 out of 5 eggsPCI Express failing

Pros: -Worked for a while
- Lots of connections, advanced features.

Cons: - All of a sudden display has gone blank one day. Only onboard video works.
- Replaced the EVA 750Ti with an old Nvidia 7300GS and uninstalled nvidia drivers and replaced with old 307 version driver. Display comes when booting but freezes within minutes after booting. I am pretty much stuck. T Frustrated with this motherboad. Having spent over 200$, expect a quality product. The only thing works is onboard video.

Other Thoughts: - Flimsy SATA ports. Constantly shakes.
- Very difficult to connect SATA cables after mounting the board to the case
-THinking of RMA
- I have ASUS A8N SLI Deluxe Motherboard that is working for last 6 years. Had no problems with ASUS before. Had high hopes for the motherboard. But the black screen seems to be a widespread issue.

Manufacturer Response:

Greetings Vaidya,

I am sorry that you are having issues with the motherboard. I appreciate you contacting me through email. Again, if I can assist you with your RMA, please let me know. Cs#N140707693

Regards,
