Nice board

Got this Motherboard from OCUK as a replacement for a similar purchase with another retailer which went badly wrong as the previous board had a fault.

Th OCUK supplied board has been absolutely perfect out of the box however and I am very happy with it. The board comfortably supports my SLI setup and my sound card as unlike previous Asus boards I have had it doesn't disable any of the PCI slots as a consequence of having additional GPU's inserted. It seems to support a very stable mild overclock on my Intel i7 4770K and my RAM. The BIOS settings are pretty comprehensive and easy to get the hang of.

My few criticisms of it are that it is a bit short on internal USB 2.0 headers. I have my H100i CPU heat sink plugged into the one and only USB 2.0 header on the motherboard so I can't connect my USB 2.0 slots on the front of my case. However it has support for 2X USB 3.0 slots on the case so I don't really miss the USB 2.0 ports very much. Also there are only 6 USB ports on the back of the motherboard which I filled up with my various devices. It could do with either a couple of USB 2.0 ports to bulk out the numbers of perhaps a few more USB 3.0 ports.

It has a lot of SATA 6GB connections but only 4 are supported by the Z97 chipset the rest are Asmedia supported, also if you use the SATA express sockets it disables some of the other SATA sockets. I would have preferred maybe 6 Z97 supported SATA sockets so I could get all my hard drives in them rather than needing to use the Asmedia sockets but its not a deal breaker.

In all I would say this is an excellent motherboard would solid support for multiple devices and built to the usual high standard of Asus products. I can recommend it.


Really great board

I love this motherboard! I like the shrouded, black look. It was easy to install, it supports my pair of GTX980 graphics cards and the water cooling of the VRMs works well with no leaks and good comfortable temperatures. Overclocking is a really simple process. I love all the extras, like the wi-fi and Bluetooth connections. They make this board with the price premium.
