Pros: Building a new water cooled gaming computer using an Intel i7-4770K CPU. Bought this motherboard for all the great features and copper water cooled chip set block preinstalled. Board has a ton load of features and ports available. I love the built in Creative EAX Sound port, no need to buy a sound card. Tested motherboard with a stock CPU heatsink and works great out of the box with my new G.Skills Trident X DDR3 2666 memory. Nicely lighted motherboard unfortunately it will be covered up by my 3 EVGA SLI nVidia Hydro cooled graphics cards. Great price with the $100 rebate card from Gigabyte.
Cons: None yet! Still need to purchase need parts for water cooling build.
Other Thoughts: Not very fond of the green color scheme otherwise the board looks great. Motherboard appears to be very durable and built with high quality construction and manufacturing standards.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Love this board. I bought it at a great price and has lots of features and ports available. The board is very durable and solid construction. Works great out of the box. Comes with the new UEFI BIOS setup. Plan on using this motherboard with a Linux OS installed.
Cons: Wish it had a Fire Wire 1394 port for my camera.
Other Thoughts: I have not received a DOA motherboard from Gigabyte and had good support service. Keep up the great quality service.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS Z87-PRO LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Nice set of features including built in WIFI port. Not to sure of the new gold look, unable to get other computer parts to color coordinate well and look good. Not much else can be said since board came DOA.
Cons: Motherboard will not boot keeps giving error " USB over current condition detected. Will shutdown in 15 seconds."
Unable to get any service support from ASUS Support. Their online support keeps saying they are out of the office for strange excuses even during their normal business hours. When I sent an email request for service, I will get no response.
Other Thoughts: Was looking forward to giving this Asus Z87-Pro motherboard a better review. But I wasted to much money on shipping this board in for replacement and counting the lost rebate due to requirement that packaging not be damaged.
Now ASUS does not want to stand behind their product and charge over half the cost for this brand new DOA motherboard just to fix the issue. What happened to the 3 year warranty especially since it came DOA. For now it makes a a nice wall conversion piece for poor customer service and manufacture quality assurance program.
