Looks like Batmans Motherboard ^_^

Personally I think this is the best looking motherboard you can currently buy for the Z87 platform, No cheap looking flashy lights apart from the ones that matter.
If your on the lookout for a board to drop your 4770K in and want to overclock the nuts off it then this should be your first choice.
As usual service from OCUK was 1st class.


Workstation Beauty

If you are looking for a high quality, aesthetically pleasing motherboard with loads of extra features and an amazing 5 year warranty, look no further than this Sabertooth Z87. I am a first time builder and currently building a workstation to cope with the high demands of my Architecture degree. This board is perfect. Amazing service by Overclockers and looks great in my Corsair 750d with a black and white theme. Would recommend to anyone who wants a high quality board which also looks amazing thanks to its thermal armour. Not going to lie, there are cheaper boards out there with similar spec but for an overall board this is AWESOME. Have my 4770k installed and looking to overclock as soon as my H100i arrives, will hopefully work like a dream!



I highly recommend this board to anyone wanting extreme power to game. I bought this board with a bit of apprehension as I normally buy the top product in all ranges but was drawn to this by the design and claim of how tuff this board is well it certainly doesn't let you down and the layout is just right all in all I am extremely happy with this product.


Excellent board!

This motherboard is amazing, perfect with the 4770k. Amazing look and feel, very sturdy and excellent features along with a nice 5 year warranty for peace of mind.
I've tried ASRock and Gigabyte, Asus have out done them again.
Congratulations Asus, being on top again!
