Love the bios, features and construction of this board.
I keep going through CPU's. I just run with a default XMP profile nothing extreme and keep frying cpu's. First CPU lasted 6 months the second 2 months. I'm on my 3rd 4770k and this time I'm trying another New Sabertooth Z87 and Power supply we'll see if the next one has this issue.
Running a Noctua NH-D14 so heat isn't an issue. Also I'm using an enterprise level UPS for clean power but still you power down the pc at night and in the morning the system wont post and the CPU led is lit. Swap out the cpu and everything is fine again.
This is an expensive waste of my time I've either received 2 bad 4770k's in a row or this motherboard is frying them. If it happens one more time and I'm never buying Asus again. I shouldn't have to keep a spare cpu handy.
