Excellent

Got this motherboard a while back (Summer 2013) and what can I say? Just brilliant for everything - overclocking, watercooling, SLI/XFire graphics cards etc. It has some really nice features like the OC panel which I now have in "normal mode" inside my case giving me instant CPU level up options and quick CPU temperature references.

Also it has switches for the PCI-E slots which could be useful for diagnosing problems with graphics cards if they arise, it has plenty of SATA III ports, USB3.0, PS/2 KB etc. If you are using wi-fi then the mPCI-E combo with 802.11ac is excellent too.

I currently have an i7-4770K @ 4.20GHz, 16GB TGroup Elite RAM and 2x EVGA GTX-780s in this motherboard and everything runs smoothly, I am struggling to actually find a con of this motherboard!

OcUK service was excellent as always, so I recommend that you buy it from here :)

Awesome!

Just what I was looking for, the best Z87 motherboard out there: Overclocking, Watercooling, and everything else is a breeze. Look no further.
