4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Motherboard works well and is easy to setup.

Cons: This may be related to the motherboard or to the SSD. There is a hardware conflict between Kingston 64GB SSD V series and the motherboard. With two of them installed they will both be recognized on the first boot. Then when rebooting one or both may not show in BIOS. Using two Samsung SSD's and their is no problem. Changing the Kingston SSD's to different ports makes no difference in their behavior.

Other Thoughts: If you are having problems with HD's or SSD's being recognized it may be worthwhile trying a different brand before sending the motherboard back.

4 out of 5 eggsA powerful board with the future in mind

Pros: ASUS' fan control UEFI configuration is brilliant. This really allows my system to stay cool and quiet.

The board is handsome, and the quantity of USB ports is great.

More configuration options than most people would know what to do with. There's not really anything left locked or untouchable, which is perhaps dangerous for those who don't know what they're doing. Hell, some of these options require you to be an electrician for proper configuration.

I love the M.2 port, which I use for my SSD boot volume. This saves on cable clutter and power consumption. Based on my positive experiences with the interface itself, I can imagine this is the future of SSD storage. I'm glad ASUS thought to include it--it was the deciding factor in choosing this board over others.

Cons: The M.2 port I mentioned previously is a huge plus, but, unfortunately, its placement on the rear of the board means that I have to remove absolutely everything from my ITX enclosure just to get to the M.2 SSD. Also, the screw thing that would hold the M.2 SSD in place is so tightly attached to the board that upon attempting to unscrew it, the top of the screw instantly wore smooth and shredded. Now I can't get it out to move into the proper place for my SSD, which means my SSD is not properly installed, sitting on top of the screw mount rather than securely in it. Thankfully, the backplate of my case keeps the M.2 SSD in place. I'd love to hear back from ASUS on a solution for this. Very frustrating, and a star lost.

Is a bit slow to load the UEFI... I don't remember it being that way on the first few initializations. I set everything back to factory spec at one point, but that didn't fix the issue. It's not a huge deal, but expect to stare at a completely blank screen for five or more seconds after hitting F2 or DEL. If you're not loading to UEFI but instead booting the OS, you won't have this issue.

For a board over a hundred dollars, a colored/black backplate would've been nice. This is the same CRAРРY ugly one from ASUS' $50 line of AMD boards. Not worth losing a star over, of course.

Other Thoughts: As mentioned in the "pros," this board is tremendously configurable. I can't imagine what the Z97 variant has that this doesn't. If my chip were unlockable, I could overclock it despite this being an H97.

5 out of 5 eggsSuch a nice board

Pros: Where to start, 8 usb, 3 fan headers, UEFI, Intel Gigabit lan, quality components.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Never owned an Asus board before now I see why people like them so much, very well designed and laid out. The UEFI is very nice, easy to work with and navigate through.

The 3 fan headers alone makes it worth it for me. I have 2 case fans and my cpu cooler, this keeps me from having to add the molex power cable to my psu just for 1 case fan. The less cables the better in a mitx case.

Also the cpu placement on the board is close to the middle, this allowed me to mount a tower cpu cooler vertically, like it should be. My Asrock had the socket higher on the board and the cooler would have hit the psu, many boards have the socket too low and the video card is in the way.

Very nice job Asus. very pleased with my purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsASUS H97I-PLUS

Pros: Incredibly easy to work with BIOS; 8 USB ports; Intel NIC helps break stupid windows limit for single file download: before I had to use Internet Download Manager for file-hosting websites like Rapidshare or Uploded, because each file wouldn't go faster than 430Kbps (never had this issue with linux); now, each file utilizes full bandwidth. I'm pretty sure I need to thank Intel network driver for that. USB speeds are -finally- as advertised: transferred 6.5GB movie file to external USB3 hard disk in 47 seconds, and copied it back to computer in 11 seconds! Even USB2 speeds are above 30MBps, which is the fastest I've ever seen for USB2.

Cons: Built-in sound is still worse than my 10 year old sound card.

Other Thoughts: At first, I installed chipset drivers from the supplied DVD. Then went to ASUS website and updated to whatever they had as their latest. However, once updating finished and I rebooted my computer - USB devices stopped working (including mouse and keyboard). I could still go to BIOS and stuff, but once it reached log-on screen - keyboard and mouse would stop working. I reinstalled windows, but this time used only drivers from the provided DVD.

Regarding built-in sound, don't expect it to be even remotely similar to a discreet sound card, not to mention an external sound card. So, if you care about sound quality, forget about on-board audio.

Very satisfied with the board. Finally upgraded from my old Pentium 4 2.8GHz (Northwood). I know, I know... Will be using this computer mostly for basic computing and movie watching. Might even play with virtualization at some point.
