ASUS Z87-A LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

1 out of 5 eggs Common serious issues with BIOS 02/11/2014

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

Pros: Its got every possible option known to mankind.

Cons: Having same BIOS overclock error that tons of other people are having with this board. There's pages and pages of people on tech forums talking about same issue... system powers, gets through POST and stalls, then tries to power up again. Called double posting or double booting, I would imagine the repeated start stop start with power isn't the best thing for your parts lol. Sometimes it might get started. But most of the time you just get an overclock error message with option to enter BIOS. Me and many others online have changed memory brand/speed/XMP profile settings several times, changed power supplies multiple times, changed processors, changed every other setting possible, jumpered the board ... nothing helps. Someone mentioned online that they manually changed the voltage and timings for the memory in BIOS and got the board to work fine for a month before running into the issue again... that's just unacceptable.

Other Thoughts: I thought I had the problem fixed, because I had it running all day fine and even did several power down and reboots. However if you leave system off for more then 10 minutes you may never get it running correct again.

Asus VK278Q Black 27
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Price, Excellent webcam

Cons: Speakers are inside the back panel so it sounds like its in a cave. They also point towards ceiling so you have to turn them all the way up to hear and then the sound is awful. My speakers stopped working completely after trying the headphone jack... which also didn't work.

Other Thoughts: Just buy a nice monitor, then speakers and webcam separate
