ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Easy setup, lots of fan plugs, bios very simple to setup and update!

Cons: Non at all!

Other Thoughts: Board developed a serious problem after 3.5 years so I requested an RMA and shipped it out.

The RMA process with Asus was flawless from start to finish! Only took 14 days from the time I shipped it out until it was back in my hands. If I had not purchased a board with a 5 year warranty, it would have been junk!

It also gave me an excuse to upgrade my system to the newer version Sabertooth Z97 Mark 1 which I am completely satisfied with!

ASUS SABERTOOTH Z97 MARK 1/USB 3.1 LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Upgraded to this board from an Asus Sabertooth Z77 which allowed me to utilize my existing DDR3 ram I had on my old board without the need to spend more money!

Lots of major improvements in Bios settings! This board will satisfy both the beginner and the serious over clockers out there! EZ mode for the beginners pretty much holds your hand with simple walkthrough and setup for over clocking. For the more experienced users, the advanced setup mode offers many tweaking options, along with some great tools built into the Bios!

Tons of onboard data connection options, which will allow you to expand your system over time as needed. Ultra-fast 10Gb/s USB 3.1 built in to the board, with the option to keep the ports energized when the computer goes to sleep so that any USB devices plugged in will continue to charge.

Thermal Armor has been upgraded with Flow Valves now built in, allowing you to focus extra air flow where it is needed, either on the CPU heatsink area, or on the heat pipes if using a liquid cooled setup. Dust de-Fan technology spins Thermal Armor's assistant fan in reverse to blow particles out of the case. PCB convection holes are also a great improvement that create better air circulation and ensure effective cooling reaches under the board.

An additional 3 thermistor cables are included with the board for placement where ever you may want to monitor temperatures with your graphics cards or other components on top of the sensors that are already built into the board.

Don’t forget the great 5 Year Warranty as well! This will protect you down the road in case you should ever have a problem as it did in my case with my old Z77 board. More on this under Other Thoughts below!

Be sure to update the Bios! Latest version is 2801 which was released November 16, 2015.

Cons: None that I could see!

Other Thoughts: My old Sabertooth Z77 board developed a serious problem after 3.5 years so I requested an RMA and shipped it out.

The RMA process with Asus was flawless from start to finish! Only took 14 days from the time I shipped it out until it was back in my hands. If I had not purchased a board with a 5 year warranty, it would have been junk!

If your in the market for a new motherboard, this is a great one!
