Not a bad little board 01/22/2014
This review is from: Intel BOXDZ87KLT75K LGA 1150 Intel Z87 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
It works. Layout is pretty decent without things getting in the way of one another. For example, SATA connections face to the "front" rather than "up", and are located on the edge of the board.
Minus half an egg for not liking my Lenovo USB keyboard. Has worked fine for getting into the BIOS on every other computer, but not this one.
Minus another half an egg for the BIOS having form dictate function. It's a real mess to navigate and nothing is where you expect it to be. Looks pretty though.
I'm disappointed this is supposedly to be intel's last retail desktop motherboard. I bought it over better performers specifically as a protest against the childish naming conventions on hardware these days.
I guess I'll have no choice the next time I upgrade but to buy an OVERCLOCK XTREME AWESOME FACEMELTER 5000 WITH ULTIMATE SUPER BLAH WHATEVER, ENDORSED BY SOME GAMER.
