3 out of 5 eggs Questionable Advertising? 03/06/2014

This review is from: ASUS Z87-A LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Board does everything it says.... Only. . .

Cons: I really hate getting got by advertising. . . clever but i'm wise to it now. One can see very obviously that this board advertises full support for 4th gen Intel products. What it fails to mention anywhere, but on a single obscure line of the specs page, is that it only supports the 4th gen CPU's with "dual channel memory lanes NOT QUAD" as I obviously assumed due to all the 4th gen support fluff... My fault for the assumption but seriously guys that should be a headliner for these boards and any other pulling this dual memory "B.S." for 4th gen Intel. . . Had i not already built the machine etc. . . we would be playing mail man. Quad channel is half if not more than half of the reason for purchasing a 4th gen Intel CPU. I'm sure I am enlightening the advertising department to this fallacy surely they didn't realize what they were doing. . . Rite?

Other Thoughts: Pay attention to channels supported with 4th gen processor combos they won't all support quad channel. . .

Why try to trick the buyer? I would've spent more to get what I wanted had it been clear. . .
