ASUS Z87M-PLUS LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 uATX Intel Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great, reliable motherboard 04/12/2014

This review is from: ASUS Z87M-PLUS LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 uATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Once I figured out the BIOS everything went together incredibly easily. I purchased this motherboard for use in my electrophysiology laboratory. I chose it because it seemed like it should be reliable. I dropped am i7-4770K in it and 16GB of G-Skill 1600 RAM. I've overclocked the system to 4.7GHz on Corsair H100i and even with CPU going full throttle with PassMark CPU test, the Chip never went over 72degC even after an hour. I've since throttled it back to 4.4GHz (no particular reason, but I don't to risk stability issues in the middle of an experiment). The system has been up and running for over 3 months now and I have yet to encounter any issues. I've got an Asus GTX780TI-DC2OC-3GD5 graphics card and two 24" Asus monitors for video.

Cons: The user manual could use a bit of work

Other Thoughts: In off time, I use the box for multimedia production. I have Adobe CS6 Production Premium and do a lot of Premiere Editing. I also have a substantial subset of my Pro audio tools loaded, and I have an EMu 2020 system as well as a Universal Audio UAD-2 quad card plugged in for audio support.

Pros: I just wrote a 5,000 word+ review that got timed out. Nice job newegg!

I bought this for my wife for Christmas, it arrived yesterday and I spent a good portion of the night setting it up for her. None of the problems reported elsewhere in these reviews were evident with the machine as it arrived. The BIOS and pre-installed Win 8.1 have worked flawlessly. The touch pad did not have problems and I experienced no glitches, whatsoever.

Cons: none, except those associated generically with Windows 8

Other Thoughts: It takes time to write a well thought out review. There is no reason the newegg connection should be reset because of time considerations when people are working on a review. I had a lot of useful information in the review that I would have liked to see, I'm not going to re-write it.

Thermaltake WATER2.0 Pro Closed-Loop All In One Liquid CPU Cooler Dual 120mm PWM Fans 120x49mm Radiator CLW0216
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Easy install, excellent performance.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: These things (I've installed 6 closed loop coolers) work much better if room air is pushed/pulled over the radiator into the case. There will never be a condition when the air inside the case is cooler than the ambient room air. All other fans in the case should push the air out. The Thermaltake instructions have the air going the wrong way!
