Pros: I previously had 2x sticks of these for the past year, and decided to go with a full 16gb build after installing my 4790k.

Cons: -Only picked these up due to a deal, was close to going with faster ram but couldn't pass up going 16gb for the cost.

This review is from: ASUS Z97-A LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Stable motherboard, that fit my cost-budget when building and upgrading. Performs perfectly fine without all the somewhat useless bells & whistles of the high end mobos. The bronze and silver aesthetics go a long way too, looks sleek in my case. Highly adjustable bios settings (as the norm today), and a good onboard sound.
Cons: Slight issue when screwing into my Haf XB evo case, not sure why but may be a defect in my own cases screw holes. The installation disk tries to install a bunch of useless applications apart from the drivers, but apart from that no.. nothing really negative can be said!
Other Thoughts: Loving this motherboard so far, Asus are well known for their quality work and you can definitely feel it for sure once everything is installed and drivers are downloaded. Running stable and easily a good motherboard, I was glad to purchase this for the price I paid. Love Asus products and stand behind them anytime!READ FULL REVIEW
