This review is from: ASUS SABERTOOTH Z87 LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
This motherboard is still rock solid. Not a single shudder in over 6 months of use. Looks great and runs better. Still clocking my 4770k to 4.6 stable, de-lidded and on water. Pull the armor off and spray painted it to match my green theme. Did the same on my GPU back plates. Looks SICK! I also own the Sabertooths little brother, the Griphon, which is a awesome board also.
I've seen a lot of reviews lately bringing this board down. Let me say that I've been in the computer industry for 29 years now. I'm an old school traditionalist and still do things the old way. I wear a static band anytime I handle components, I keep all my extras stored in anti static bags. I take my time and always work off a check list so that the job is done right the first time and there's no unnecessary tear downs to fix mistakes. I never force parts to fit. I've been doing business with Newegg for years and I've NEVER had to RMA a single product...NEVER. Things happen, I get it, maybe I've been lucky, but statistics show me that some people leave bad reviews for mistakes they made and never post updated ones admitting what they did wrong and how they fixed them. I've owned countless ASUS products and they have all performed as advertised. It's been in my experience that Newegg will work their hardest to help resolve your issues to the best of their ability but understand that some things take a few days to rectify.
