ASUS Z97-DELUXE(NFC & WLC) LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Nice look, nice features (even though some only seem to work with win8)
No issues during install.
paired with a 4770K
16 gigs corair veng. series 1600mhz - from older system
2 - 7950's crossfired (8x 8x) confirmed, with USB3 working,
8 SATA connections at the moment.
ssd - intel 730, no issues.
Bios updated to latest, no issue - put file on thumb, boot to bios, hit update.
No driver conflicts, other than windows will not see some devices till you install the included drivers. - keep cd in during restarts, some installs will need cd directly after reboot.
Teaming LAN 2 Gigbit - connected to my supported switch for media streaming. overkill but, why not
wifi access point or client, bluetooth - good range
no issue installing corsair h100i cooler.
great power saving features.
CLEAN ONboard audio.

Cons: Auto installed NORTON SECURITY,
No! No! No! it burns.
Quick charger iis great if you have a induction charging device or cover.
NFC.....Oh I See. Keyfob would be nice, but i can never find my keys.

Other Thoughts: I have not installed thunderbolt, as it might disable some sata ports, from what i read, but I will give it a go soon. Wanted to enjoy the upgrade.
My old system was a i7 860 2.8ghz, Gigabyte GA-p55a-ud6 motherboard.
the old board could not run 8x 8x crossfire, or usb3 without disabling a different device. Microstudder on vid cards. SATA2 tops.
This thing is so much faster, more stable, and use less wattage.

Intel Core i7-4770K Haswell Quad-Core 3.5GHz LGA 1150 84W Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics BX80646I74770K
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fast, low wattage usage, paired with a ASUS z97-deluxe, Intel 730 SSD 490GB. Corsair h100i. AMD 7950s Crossfire 8x 8x config. Running at 35c-47c(stress test all night)
I really see no need to overclock, but I'm sure I will take it to 3.8ghz.
It is 3.5 ghz stock but steps up to 4.3ghz when needed.

Cons: 16 lanes of pcie, whatever, I'll live.

Other Thoughts: This was a upgrade from a i7 860 2.8ghz - overclocked to 3.6ghz with a gigabyte GA-p55a-ud6 motherboard. This processor is rougly 64% faster than the 860 and it shows. Stability and speed, and the low power usage. 35w vs a first gen at 95w. I could have gone with the 4790k but this processor was matched with the mobo. Like I said, was looking for a stable build.

Intel 730 Series SSDSC2BP480G4R5 2.5

  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fast, plug and play. Reliable from my research. First SSD so, anything faster than 30MB/s is fast for me.

Cons: ups does not count Saturday as a business day.
