This review is from: ASUS GRYPHON Z87 LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 uATX Intel Motherboard

Pros:

Very solid and well built board, I'm quite happy with it. The BIOS took a little getting used too, but it's pretty easy to use as well. Setup consisted of pretty much just plugging things in and turning it on. Also, the color of the heatsinks matches the color of the ring on my Corsair H105 pump, which is awesome. Port placement seems to be pretty good, and there are a lot of fan connectors.

Stability, so far, seems excellent.

There appears to be a large array of OC options, but I haven't really played with them yet.

Cons:

Didn't recognize my Samsung 840 EVO at first, had to dig into the BIOS to enable it as a bootable option.

It's got 2 PWM ports for the CPU, one labled 'CPU' and one labeled 'CPU Opt'. Both are monitored separately, but their PWM speed control is unified. Only a mild annoyance, though.

Price is a little higher than it's competitors.

The TUF armor has to be purchased separately and cannot be installed with the board in the computer. That said, I didn't want it, so I'm fine with that.

Other Thoughts:

Hey, it's an Asus board, you end up paying for that. That said, even though it's a bit more than other boards with similar features, I don't regret the purchase. Asus boards tend to be consistently stable, and I'll pay extra to know my system is going to run for years.
