2 out of 5 eggsDissapointed

Pros: ASUS brand, solid design

Cons: Firmware and software support are severely lacking. performance

Other Thoughts: I have had many ASUS motherboards and always thought they were the best till I got mad at ASUS for not having a better means to update software and drivers. Also I don't thinks the bios updates a tested very well. The latest bios would not perform when activating boost options...

1 out of 5 eggsNo linux support

Pros: Nice board, but poor linux support (Ubuntu 14.04.1).

Cons: There is no support in lm-sensors for this board. You will not get any fan speed or control.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy this board if you are running linux.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Gaming Board

Pros: * Dual Gigabit NICs
* Built in Wi-Fi
* Bluetooth
* AI suite 3 - Some have complained about this software being buggy but once you take the time to learn how it works it really is great software
* Z97 Chipset - Will be compatible with new Broadwell CPU
* Incredible BIOS - Tailor to specific needs
* Asus Quality

Cons: * The Power Control in AI Suite 3 Conflicts with Windows Power Control -This is where most bugs appear - Disabling Windows Power Control (Like sleep mode and such) and Allowing AI Suite 3 to Handle will save you some lock-ups - Over all Not worth losing an Egg since its a simple setting fix.

Other Thoughts: Overall an awesome board would buy again if I had the need to build another system.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat but complex setup

Pros: Has almost every feature I could need for a gaming system. Tons of SATA options, M.2 on the board, wifi built in is great and the 5-way optimization does better than I could do by hand.

Cons: I bought a Plexor G512m6e for the board and it is lightning. But the board can't see if you set to boot only with UEFI. It can boot and install Legacy, but not UEFI. Contacted Asus, they said it should work. Contacted Plexor and they said it should work. But even with the latest bios (1304) on the motherboard and latest firmware (1.04) on the m6e, it just cannot see the drive if I force it to UEFI. Installs and works perfectly in Legacy.

I also bought Corsair 2400 that was listed as compatible with the motherboard but the BIOS only sees it as 1333. Running the 5-way optimizer ramped it up to 2448 though.

The biggest complaint... you have to create a spreadsheet to figure out which ports will be active. Turning on the m.2 port disables one of the PCIe Sata groups. Enabling some USBs disables some SATA ports. It would have been nice if ASUS had provided the same matrix I had to create by hand from the documentation and experimentation.

Other Thoughts: I'm not an overclocker but I really wanted more SATA ports so that I could dump the LSI card I was using for a drive array. I am an admitted data hoarder and crazy paranoid about drive failures so I run everything as RAID with only the boot drive being non-RAID. I was disappointed in the loss of SATA ports when enabling the m.2 but that m.2 is so fast. The system boots from off to Windows fully ready in 8 seconds without fastboot.

I bought it because my old system (5 years old) just didn't have the hoarse power for the newer multi-threaded games. Civilization V would take 15 minutes per turn once I got satellites and could see the world and all civilizations. That was unbearable. This machine cut that down to less than 4 minutes.

I find it annoying that it doesn't detect the DRAM even though I bought exactly what was listed on the system hardware compatibility for Corsair. It see the model number but not the speed. And it is annoying that the m.2 can't boot with UEFI. I don't see a big advantage for UEFI so living with Legacy MBR is fine. Just an annoyance to spend so much on the m6e instead of a cheaper SATA version not to get the UEFI.

4 out of 5 eggsContempt prior to investigation

Pros: I can't say enough about this mobo. It does have some quirks, but if Google becomes your friend and you do some investigating prior to writing it off as DOA, they do work themselves out. I wanted a board that had a little bit of everything and this one has it. M.2, SATA Express, plenty of SATA III connections, on board WiFi (not that I'll ever use it on a regular basis), 2 onboard LAN connections, obviously the list can go on and on, but you can read the specs. One thing that stood out was the ease of setting up RAID through the fantastic BIOS. The manual even says that you can only set up 4 drives, but if you pay attention to how you connect the drives to the SATA connectors making sure your drives you want in RAID are all connected to the Intel chipset, I believe that 6 drives can actually be done. I currently am running 5 WD Black 4tb drives in RAID 0 for a total of 18.1tb after Windows is done with their formatting. Just make sure you install the RAID driver as you get ready to install Windows and the Asus BIOS will take you right through the rest without ever having to hit <ctrl> <l> at POST to set up the RAID. XMP works great. BIOS flashback is a Godsend. Bottom line, this board is fantastic!

Cons: I'm not sure if it's truly a con, because this technology is still pretty new. I paired this board with an i7-4790k and this not being my first build expected there to be some hurdles. As for the Q Code 55, I got the same thing when I initally booted everything up. After some research, and some of my own trial and error testing, I was able to narrow down the issue. The 55 code points to a "memory not installed" error. I had all 4 slots filled with 8gb of G.Skill Ares RAM that I knew worked because I had just taken it out of my Sabertooth 990FX R2.0. First, I checked the vendors list and the RAM is not listed, but is Intel XMP ready so in theory the RAM should still work, even if it's not at the rated speed. Long story short, I narrowed it down to DIMM A1 and A2 causing the issue. If I installed RAM in either one of these slots I got the 55 error. If I installed RAM only in DIMM B1 or B2 the computer would work fine. More searching led to a couple of others that had the same type of issue. Not always the same DIMMs, but the same issue none the less. 2 DIMMs worked fine while 2 DIMMs caused the error. Apparently this CPU socket is very finicky when it comes to seating the CPU and the amount of pressure added by tightening down whatever your using to cool the CPU. I took everything back apart, cleaned everything up, made sure the CPU was seated properly, applied new thermal paste, snugged down the water pump on top being careful to not over tighten it, and yes EVERYTHING WORKED. All 32gb of RAM, not on the QVL I will also add, read in perfectly using the XMP switch on the motherboard.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA and RMA Rejected, Stuck with dead product

Pros: Could not use the product , was DOA

Cons: The mother board did not POST , QR code of '00' failed all troubleshooting steps and RMA-ed it to New Egg. However new egg rejected my RMA as 'physical damage'. I have not caused any physical damage. I contacted New Egg for an explanation. They offered to send me a picture which was never sent. Contacting new egg is painful as you face very long wait time and the customer service person has no further information to tell you. I ask for a supervisor , after very long hold time, I was told no supervisor available. Basically I am stuck with a dead product and no where to go. I am now disputing the charge through my credit card company.

Other Thoughts: I bought several things from new egg before . Often the price is slightly cheaper than the biggest ecommerce vendor ( I could not use the name because new egg review does not let use the name but you can guess). But when things go wrong is when you realize the true price you paid for. I am 100% sure I would have been quickly exchange damaged product through other online vendor and their customer service is excellent. the money i lost on this motherboard is now more than I saved in previous purchases compared to AZN. Think carefully when you shop here again

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Binu,

I am verry sorry to hear you had issues with RMA'ing your motherboard sir. I would be happy to take a look at it and assist you. At your earliest convenience, please contact me through email, including your reference number within the subject line, and we can discuss your case further. In addition, please provide me with what troubleshooting steps you had tried when the board did not post, as well as the rest of the systems hardware configuration. Thank you. Cs#

Regards,

Lou

5 out of 5 eggsGreat motherboard

Pros: Great board with a lot of features!!

The on board wifi and bluetooth is great!!
Normally I don't install the realtek audio drivers and software it is fairly convenient when switching from optical out and the regular analog outputs. I can't say much about USB 3.0 since I don't have any devices that support it. I would like to acquire an M.2 drive to take advantage of the new interface and speed increases over ssd using SATA 3.

It is a great board with a lot of features I don't use all of them but it is nice to have the ability to in the future.

Cons: I had some difficulty with installing windows. Mainly because of my ignorance. I didn't know you have to use a GPT partition disk instead of an MBR I had boot errors and whatnot. It's fixed now. But just keep in mind that this board uses UEFI BIOS.

Also if you use a key board that has a PS/2 connector get rid of it. This motherboard doesn't have a PS/2 connector.

Other Thoughts: ASUS Z97 Deluxe
Intel 4970k
EVGA GTX 770
EVGA 750W Supernova
EVGA 120mm ACX CPU cooler
CORSAIR SPEC 03 case
1TB Western Digital Black drive
120 GB Corsair SSD (Can't remember the model)

5 out of 5 eggsPay for the quality

Pros: I did a lot of research and was thinking to get the Asus z97 wifi AC. But I saw the discount and bought z97 Deluxe instead. This board may not be the priority in terms of OC but all features come in handy. Wifi works well, solid signal, fine range, and it has magnet will allow you to stick it on your case. The extra LAN port I don't use it but if you don't have a Wifi printer, you will probably appreciate it has two.

Cons: Price is very subjective but I really think spending a little bit extra is worth it. However, gamers who don't go crazy OC just want the board solid and stable. MSI Gaming 7,5 or Asus z97-a, pro ,and wifi will serve you well. There's no need to pay more features that you will never use. However, since you will never know whether there will be circumstance that you move your desktop to somewhere has no LAN port but wifi available, just buy this board to save you some time.

Other Thoughts: Over all a good board, delivery what it should, but extra features are not necessary to most people. It's pricey for gamers but not good enough for OC focus. Kind of stuck in the middle. I am the few that almost utilize all features on this board and love it. If it's discounted like $20 off, buy it no doubt. Costs are gonna be higher if you were to buy parts to add on regular boards that don't come with these built-in features.
