ASUS Z97-DELUXE(NFC & WLC) LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: - Packed full of features/options
- NFC/Wireless Charge pad, Wireless-AC Adapter, and Thunderbolt Kit included for a decent price.
- Autoclock software pushed 4790k to 4.6 on air, tweaking from there I was able to get up to 4.97.
- RAID controller and setup

Cons: - A little pricey, but that should be a given when "Deluxe" is in the name
- Have to pick and choose features to use (can't do SLI, Thunderbolt, and m2 all at the same time)
- Too much software included

Other Thoughts: - Not being able to do SLI, Thunderbolt, and m2 is not the fault of the board design but limitations in PCI lanes available, so no egg deduction for that
- Users mention automatic installation of Norton...If you use the disc included and click the "Install All" option it will install Norton. Not all software included should be installed anyway. Builders should already be downloading just the latest drivers from Asus anyway
- I used i7-4790k integrated graphics during initial setup without any problems. Using dedicated card now.

Intel Core i7-4790K Devil’s Canyon Quad-Core 4.0GHz LGA 1150 BX80646I74790K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4600
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Reasonably priced
- Reasonable energy consumption
- Great for overclocking (All Cores @ 4.7GHz on Air)

Cons: - CPU cooler provided is not made for overclocking (should not have been included)

Other Thoughts: Based clock still at 100MHz with a 47 multiplier and 1.35V. I can raise the base clock up to 103MHz but I need to get the voltage up to 1.4V which makes me feel uncomfortable. When I say on air, I mean a lot of air. Using a Noctua NH-U14S cooler, and ~800CFM airflow through the case and an ambient temperature of 72°F.

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C9S-8GXM
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Worked out of the box
-Accurate timings
-Heat spreader

Cons: - None at this point in time (3 months @ 7-9 hours per day)

Other Thoughts: Bought for a budget gaming build.
