ASUS 5X Protection
Hardware safeguards to ensure long-term durability

ASUS’s be-the-best ethos underscores the choice of every single component that goes into your ASUS motherboard. ASUS focuses relentlessly on quality to ensure long-term system reliability and performance.

General information

Precise digital power control with ASUS DIGI+ VRM

Voltage regulator modules (VRMs) are among the most essential motherboard components. A good VRM intelligently delivers CPU power based on actual needs at any given time. ASUS was first with digital power design featuring faster sensing and response to deliver precise CPU power on demand. This great accuracy reduces energy waste and of course improves system stability thanks to more consistent delivery.

General information

Enhanced DRAM overcurrent protection

Onboard resettable fuses prevent overcurrent and short-circuit damage. This extends beyond I/O ports to DRAM to safeguard the lifespan of both your system and connected device.

General information

5K-hr solid-state capacitors that last 2.5X longer

Solid-state capacitors are able to withstand extreme temperatures of up to 105°C for as long as 5,000 hours — that's two-and-a-half (2.5X) times longer than traditional capacitors. This exceptional durability means superb real-world endurance to more typical PC operating temperatures, ensuring that ASUS motherboards continue working longer.

General information

Stainless-steel back I/O that lasts 3X longer

ASUS motherboard back I/O panels are made from strong and corrosion-resistant stainless steel, which is bonded with a thin layer of chromium oxide to enhance anti-corrosive properties. Passing 72-hour spray salt endurance tests, ASUS stainless steel back I/O panels have a lifespan that's three times (3X) longer compared to ordinary panels.

General information

ESD Guards for protection from electrostatic discharge

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can happen suddenly, and its damaging effects are easily underestimated. ASUS ESD Guards are tested to very high standards, capable of up to +/- 10kV for air discharge and +/-6kV for contact discharge. An active protective circuit design is employed to guard your system against electrostatic interference and damage, providing greater component longevity.

Proven compatibility

General information

Having the freedom to pick and choose the parts that go into your machine is at the heart of PC DIY. ASUS’s extensive certification program focuses on providing the very best compatibility with the widest range of components and devices, giving you the freedom to build and upgrade without frustration. Compatible today and compatible far into the future – that's the ASUS way.

Every 9 Series motherboard is compatible with thousands of devices. ASUS engineers fit and assess both server and consumer CPUs, hundreds of memory modules, dozens of graphics cards, loads of storage devices, power supplies, network devices, displays, optical drives, peripherals and many more. Enjoy complete confidence in ASUS’s products and their superb compatibility.

Top-to-bottom reliability

General information

Each motherboard is subjected to extended reliability testing under heavy load conditions, from the transportation to daily operations, to make sure they are delivered to you in perfect condition. Trials include temperature and humidity, burn-in, power on/off, power consumption, insertion and thermal-shock testing among many others. Every certified-compatible component puts through an up to 24-hour aging test to ensure trouble-free operation every day – no matter what you fit or attach and no matter what you do.

  8. A double win for gaming

    General information

    The difference between defeat and victory can be measured in milliseconds. That's why ASUS motherboards are equipped with state-of-the-art networking technology that puts your frags first.

    General information

    Intel Gigabit Ethernet — top gaming choice that goes faster with your CPU

    Faster, smoother gaming – always. Intel Gigabit Ethernet has the serious double advantage of communicating directly with CPUs and offering high TCP and UDP throughput. This significantly reduces the processor's workload, so there's more power for your game and your gameplay.

    Up to 2X-faster UDP game-data performance

    ASUS engineers used IxChariot, an independent network-assessment test tool, to determine just how much quicker Intel Gigabit Ethernet deals with the smaller (sub-256 byte) UDP data packets that are vital for responsive gaming. The results are in — and with Z97 your game-data packets flow up to two times (2X) faster than competing gaming-LAN technologies.

Works okay for the most part

Pros: - Great support for my Broadwell i7 (5775C)
- Easy to use BIOS so anyone can overclock

Cons: - Very picky about RAM, will not overclock my Corsair Vengeance Pro 2400MHz kit to 2400MHz, highest I can go is 1866MHz.

Overall Review: - Great if you can find it for around $100, wouldn’t pay much more than that considering its “quality”

NIce motherboard for it's price range, and good for overclocking with the right processor.

Pros: A good motherboard in general, with enough connections for all your connection needs

Cons: I didnt find much

Great board - no support

Pros: As long as you do a vanilla build, you will love it.

Cons: ASUS support doesn't exist. Their e-mail web page only returns a "server busy" message and won't take the e-mail submission. Support page links are broken. ASUS doesn't appear to support TPM 2.0 (again no support to provide answers). BIOS update processes lack clear detail (you may have to rename files before attempting flashback, but who knows?)

Overall Review: No. The lack of support makes a good product obsolete faster than it should. Plan to experiment, and risk bricking, to do any updates to the BIOS or capabilities.

Asus Z97-E Doesn't Do Mutli-Monitor Well

Pros: Inexpensive and decent overclocker. No issues with a single monitor.

Cons: If you are using a video card that supports mutli-monitors, don't bother with this motherboard. I brought 2 of these for the kids and purchased a pair of Gigabyte Windforce GTX 960 video cards with these boards. I recently purchased additional monitors to use with those video cards and cannot use them. If you connect more than a single monitor to the PCIE video card, it gives nothing but a black screen. You can use the integrated CPU video with the PCIE video card, but you can't drive two monitors from the single video card. Have tried the video cards in other PC's and they do indeed support more than one monitor. Different video cards, Asus Direct CI II Radeon 290X, Asus GTX 660Ti and an Asus Strix 980i do not support more than the single monitor when installed into this motherboard. Flashing the BIOS to lower versions did not correct the problem. Next step is to contact Asus and hope they have a fix. Bios V 0803, 16GB Ram, 512GB Samsung SSD.

Overall Review: Would not buy this board again. Others have had the same issues. Will update if Asus can fix this.

I love it.

Pros: 6 Sata slots, 5 usb 3.0 slots, the type of PCI Express Slots and the price was below $95.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: My other choice was the MSI SLI Krait but it had to many different problems in the reviews that I read, and that scared me away. I chose this motherboard because it had less bad reviews. My main fear was getting a DOA board or one with bent pins. I have had no problems with this one. It's been 6 months and everything is working perfectly.

Great Motherboard for great price.

Pros: Bought this to replace a z97 PC mate board that had nothing but issues out of the box. Put this thing in and had no issues whatsoever. Bios is a dream (as usual, ASUS has always done this well) and lots of options. The including if USB 3.1 and an m2 port was awesome and a good future proofing to an extent. Once again a very high quality from a great company. Running a 4790k, 16gbs of gskill ddr3 ram and a EVGA 980 ti. Like I said, no problems whatsoever.

Cons: None
