Z97-PRO(Wi-Fi ac)

All-Round Energy Efficiency

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!


Z97-PRO(Wi-Fi ac)

Advanced Fan Controls for Ultimate Cooling and Quietness

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.

Z97-PRO(Wi-Fi ac) 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.

Up to 2X Faster UDP Game-Data Performance

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!

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Full Feature Board

Pros: Bios is very detailed and allows either auto features or detailed adjustments.
Extra features are almost too much but allow customization
Auto overclocking works with my 4770K easily at 4.4 with water cooling
Lots of extra cables of very good quality.
Onboard video great for anything except gaming. I expected this. Thunderbolt looks as if it will be amazing.
Software is useful - Bios update in windows is easy .
Quality constrtruction.
I LOVE the lighted power and reset buttons on the board!!!
VERY handy when you are adding and rebooting during the build. Switches for auto overclock and other functions make this a good choice for novice over clockers.
Temperature and fan control is excellent. runs very cool
Wireless is very fast and very useful as is Bluetooth.

Cons: NO real cons to deduct eggs.

Newegg shipping to Canada is glacial. 11 days. should dock an egg but this is not a Asus con. It is not Purolater but seeyoulater.

Other Thoughts: Has only 6 fan headers. I would have liked a couple more but not a con. I have a P6T Pro that has been perfect for years so I hope this will be as well.
For large cases you will need fan cable extenders.
The features that are pros also make it complex.
You will need to do some studying to get the best out of this board.
