This review is from: ASUS Z97-A LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Lets just get to the cons.
Cons: The asus auto voltage control sets the voltage way too high and using custom voltage does not seem to work anymore.
Here is why:
I had this running a 4.6 overclock running cinebench...
Both cpu and cpu cache (uncore) offset and additional voltage were set to
and the computer still ran and booted, still ran cinebench and the voltage was only affected by turning down the offset voltage but not even by much.
The firmware is bugged and has been bugged.
With the latest firmware i cant even get to a 4.7 ghz overclock, i used to be able to get to 4.9 ghz.
Other Thoughts: Every firmware update makes this board worse.READ FULL REVIEW
