ASUS SABERTOOTH Z87 LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Had to fix 4 bent CPU pins very easy 05/13/2015

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

Pros: High Quality capacitors, good quality board. Like the bios flash back option you can update bios without CPU or ram.

Cons: Had to remove the plastic thermal armor in order to get my ASUS GTX 670 4gb to fit snug. Had to bend 4 CPU pins on motherboard to get it to work correctly . I used a scope to make sure i got the pins bent correctly.

Other Thoughts: This Computer Build

ASUS MAXIMUS VI HERO LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I like ASUS motherboards they last. You get what you pay for. look for the best capacitors on a motherboard, this motherboard has it, most other parts never fail from my experience . I have been fixing computers for 15 years, and see very few problems with ASUS, MSI, and Gigabit motherboards. You want one that will last. I even like the new Bios on this board.

Cons: NONE

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-1866C9Q-32GXM
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I did a lot of research before buying this DDR3 ram, G.Skill has a good reputation from many overclockers for lasting a long time. This ram is very stable, grate heat-sinks, and just looks sexy. ASUS has this ram on the Qualified Vender List for maximum compatibility with my board, you can never go wrong if ASUS says its stable, and puts it on their QVL. Super easy to install, Just go into Bios, and select XMP, and that setting will automatically set all the timings for the DDR3 1866 ram automatically, or you can also set them manually if you please, how easy is that. I needed the 32gigs kit, if you are using 3DS MAX, MAYA, or BLENDER for computer animation, or video editing with CS6 MASTER COLLECTION, or SONY VEGUS PRO, the extra gigs will definitely help on those big projects. RAM DISK is another grate option to use with this ram. Comes with LIFE TIME WARRANTY, wow!!!!!! and Works with AMD and INTEL platforms. RAPJAWS X rock.

Cons: NONE
