Best Motherboard I've Ever Owned! 09/11/2013
This review is from: ASUS SABERTOOTH Z87 LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
- VERY solid construction (heavy mobo, feels very solid)
- Easy-to-use bios
- Overclocked my 4770k to 4.8GHz with a single button press.
- Aesthetically pleasing
-1 egg because the optional assist fans are a bit loud on anything other than the "silent" setting. I had the Asus AI Suite auto adjusting the fans, and when the system was idle, the assist fans would constantly rev between 3k (silent) and 7k (very loud) RPM's.
Instead of having it automated, I set them to the "Silent" setting. They run at around 3k RPM's and you can't hardly hear them.
This is the BEST motherboard I've ever owned. I just switched from a Maximus IV Extreme, and I don't see myself ever going back to that line of motherboards. I'm sticking with Sabertooth FOREVER! Basically the same bios and it feels much more solidly built.
