Best board ever owned 07/15/2013
This review is from: ASUS Z87-PRO LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
I tested this board's limits right after installing my OS. This board has been my favorite. It's fast, the Z87 chipset is a plus, USB 3.0 and SATA 6, even down to the wireless antenna (doubles as a hotspot) and the use of bluetooth too! I have an i5 4670k installed in this thing, and the board runs around 22 C with the stock i5 running around 25-28 C range. Overclocked, the board still runs around 28 C.
You can say color is a con, but I like the gold, and it sits in my case anyway, so why bother putting it down as a con?
I don't have any cons against this motherboard
I looked at a lot of boards when the Z87 chipset came out. I mostly looked at this one and the MSI equivalent one to it. I took the ASUS for what it can do. The MSI could do the same thing, and at a lower cost, but I wanted something that I felt would last me a few years without trouble.
