5 out of 5 eggs Great Boards with lots of features 07/25/2013

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

Pros: AC wireless
Dual thunderbolt ports
Easy to navigate BIOS
Easy to overclock
Lots of SATA 6 Gbps ports

Cons: Could use a 1394 header (I know rare on today's boards)
Could use a few more usb 2.0 and maybe 3.0 headers
AI Suite/possibly just wifi-GO caused computer to start up itself

Other Thoughts: So for my first build I was going to go with the Maximus extreme VI board but after hearing some not so great things about it I decided on this board. I've only owned this for a little over a week so far but so far I'm really liking it. It has more features than you can shake a stick at even for the olympic stick shakers. I love the built in ac wireless as well as the bluetooth, it has plenty of connectivity with usb 2.0 and 3.0, dual gigabit Ethernet, as well as the two built in thunderbolt ports.

My only complaints for connectivity go to the internal connectors. While it has 10 sata connectors, there are only 2 usb 2.0 headers, one usb 3.0 header and zero 1394 headers. This may work fine for you but I had used up both usb 2 headers for the case usb and had to use in internal usb hub for my corsair link modules. I only needed the 1394 header for my case but I don't know I like to have everything working on my case. All in all its my fault in the first place for not realizing it.

The bios on this board is relatively easy to navigate and through it I have overclocked my 4770k to 4.3ghz stable just running some auto/adaptive settings while also running 2400mhz corsair dominator platinums after enabling X.M.P.

The only problem I had besides the ports was I had my computer randomly just turning itself on and awaking from sleep. I narrowed it down to the AI Suite III software and potentially wifi-GO software within AI Suite. Once I uninstalled AI Suite I no longer have any of these problems and the board is running great. I have yet to use the NFC device for anything besides a usb hub but that was more of a bonus anyway, I bought this over the deluxe for the thunderbolt ports. Would I buy this board again? Yes definitely
