Best motherboard I've ever owned!!

I just built my new PC with this motherboard and this CPU "Intel Core i5-4690K 3.50GHz" just a few days ago and all I can say is wow! It's truly amazing! The motherboard has every type of connection you could possibly ever need, it lights up red with red LED's. Its very nice to look at and the BIOS is amazing too, very simple and clear and has all the options you'd want to make overclocking easy. Great built quality, just perfect in every way, I'm glad I spent more money and got something that will last me a long time.

I would definitely recommend this motherboard.


one hell of an update

I brought this for my girlfriend after the constant complaints about her old system.... my word it's one hell of abit of kit i paired it up with a i5 4690 and coming from an old asrock amd board she is over the moon. Now for the nitty gritty price to performance is great and the bios features took a while to get use to but it is very intuitive. haven't tried out the tools like sonic radar and such but look forward to trying them out in battle. i might just steal this pc come to think of it....


Brilliant !!!

Received this week.

I've been building my own computers for over 10 years now and I have to say I am very impressed with this board. The BIOS options and layout are the best I've seen yet. As for the actual board, it's very well laid out, the onboard sound is fantastic. I love the lighting effect on the board. The secure erase feature is a nice touch for wiping your SSD in the BIOS. Great new features in general, love it.

Installed and booted with no problems at all.

For the price you really cannot beat it and it's of course a ROG board. Nice added bits in the box.

Touch of class, great for any overclockers. CUSTOMPC (Bit-Tech) Premium award.

Now I just need that Devils Canyon CPU :)


This wasnt my first choice but...

I have found it hard to make a choice on what I wanted. My I7 930 died on me recently and found myself thinking about an fx 9370, I was heavily put off by one thing, the annoying pins on the processor and the . I do realise the pins are just on the motherboard but installation is not so scary. Moving on to the actual review... I ended up going for i7 4790. I really wanted the z97 sabertooth version 2, however I read some good things about this board as the sabertooth was out of stock. I received this today after ordering on sunday night (before bank holiday monday) really impressed with postage service from these guys. So far so good was really easy to install not one problem what so ever. The uefi bios took a little getting used too but so much nicer to use that the bios on the x58a ud3r rev 2.0. so much more pleasing aesthetically. runs really well, pretty pleased to be honest. Ill add to this, when I have run "her" in a bit. One thing I will say about this board is that !
it does not seem as buggy as my previous board and that was part of a bundle i bought from here. I will add that I had read somewhere that someone had a problem with loading their windows install. In my experience I think it comes down to compatability, but I did not have to install any updates for bios or nor was i forced to reinstall windows as like I said that worked from my previous install and as I said, I chose to reinstall just to give a clean install and start from scratch. I have probably babbled on a bit about nothing but I hope this helps.
