This review is from: Intel BOXDZ87KLT75K LGA 1150 Intel Z87 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: It works. Layout is pretty decent without things getting in the way of one another. For example, SATA connections face to the "front" rather than "up", and are located on the edge of the board.
Cons: Minus half an egg for not liking my Lenovo USB keyboard. Has worked fine for getting into the BIOS on every other computer, but not this one.
Minus another half an egg for the BIOS having form dictate function. It's a real mess to navigate and nothing is where you expect it to be. Looks pretty though.
Other Thoughts: I'm disappointed this is supposedly to be intel's last retail desktop motherboard. I bought it over better performers specifically as a protest against the childish naming conventions on hardware these days.
I guess I'll have no choice the next time I upgrade but to buy an OVERCLOCK XTREME AWESOME FACEMELTER 5000 WITH ULTIMATE SUPER BLAH WHATEVER, ENDORSED BY SOME GAMER.
Pros: Works as advertised in my z87 board. No complaints.
Cons: NoneREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Small footprint, quiet operation.
Cons: Raid is intel ICH10R software raid, so no good for vmware.
After a bit over two years of operation, the system has failed. Both power supplies sit there clicking. Occasionally the fans come on and it looks like it's booting, then just shuts down again.
No telling if it's the power supplies, motherboard or what.
It's out of warranty, so it's getting taken out back and shot.
Will not buy supermicro again.
