Intel BOXDZ87KLT75K LGA 1150 Intel Z87 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Intel Z87
  • 4th-generation Core i5, i7 (LGA1150)
  • DDR3 2400+(OC)/1600/1333

Pros:

- More bells and whistles than you can shake a stick at
- Support for the highest-tier hardware
- Great head spreader design looks awesome
- Comes with a free mousepad

Cons:

- Misleading RAM speed support
- Lots of bugs in early BIOS revisions

Other Thoughts:

Unless you've been hiding under a rock for the past year or so, it shouldn't come as news that Intel is getting out of the motherboard business - this is likely the last SkullTrail motherboard. But, they're going out with a bang - this mobo has everything you could ever ask for, plus some. It's like the engineering team got to have a party, and everyone was invited - GUI BIOS, 7-seg display POST diagnostics, power state indicator lights, firmware RAID, push-button BIOS reset, quick-boot support, full virtualization support, UEFI console, dynamic overclocking, you name it, it supports it. Sadly, quite a few of the aforementioned capabilities had issues with the unit I received, requiring many BIOS resets for what should have been a routine change (I should not have to reset to defaults after disabling PXE), and though my RAM was DDR3 2400, the board required me to set it manually (it defaults to 1600 - apparently, it considered that overclocking). Happily, almost every issue I had went away with a BIOS update (I was originally on the release firmware), and it's been ticking along happily ever since. I do a lot of hardware virtualization with Xen, and while VT-d is usually a crapshoot with motherboard support, this one came right up and supported everything right out of the box. Post-BIOS-update, I couldn't be happier with this board.
