5 out of 5 eggsexcellent motherboard and nice feature.

Pros: I own it over a year + for main gaming. My first batch motherboard current C0 step when it came out. I dunno but have no problem so far. I didn't see if anything strange about it even I am aware about C0 step have some sort bug. I already upgrade 4790k from 4670k due poor overclock because terrible TIM CPU of 4670k.

Cons: none at the moment I see any bug with C0 step. If you plan to get 4790k cpu then do not ! flash BIOS through USB BIOS and BIOS menus will not able boot 4790k. It only way to work with 4790k by use old cpu like 4770k or lower (old haswell) then update BIOS through Asus BIOS program inside Windows OS before able use 4790k cpu.

Other Thoughts: not much and almost RMA new intel 4790k cpu but decide wait and google around about problem fail boot 4790k. It only work by through Asus BIOS programs inside Windows OS with old cpu if intend to use 4790k cpu.

For now, just go with z97 motherboard if you want 4790k cpu plus will work with any haswell cpu.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Mobo

Pros: Incredible motherboard for a good price. Bios are well thought out. Utilities that come with the board work well. I have the AI Suite 3 installed which allows you to custom control fan speeds, overclocks, etc. through the software. Mobo. looks great in the case, the red led "circuit lighting" around the sound card module add extra spice.

Cons: This is the z87 chipset, so there is a possibility that this board wont support the new Broadwell intel chips when they are released. Also, I had to install my thermalright ib-e extreme fans in a pull pull config to leave room for the memory. Not worth pulling an egg since that cooler is way over-sized.

Other Thoughts: I was able to post with the i5-4690k installed. But, you do need to update your bios to the latest once windows is installed. Also, be sure to enable XMP in the bios to get the best performance out of your memory modules.

1 out of 5 eggsStinks

Pros: Looks good.

Cons: I have never had more boot hang ups on any motherboard ( I have had lots) than this one. I paid top dollar for bottom product.

2 out of 5 eggsASUS customer service page

Pros: The motherboard is aesthetically pleasing. Has all the features I was looking for and plenty of Sata ports.

Cons: I am having some issues with the boot but I cannot send a support email to ASUS because there customer service support tickets are broken. It kind of ridiculious, you fill out a 20 question page about your system and it just keeps saying must fill in blank. They are all filled in....

Other Thoughts: I hope I can find away to fix this problem but it will be difficult to do without any support. I am slighlty worried this board is DOA. Never seen anything quite like this. I have seen a lot of people with similar problems through Toms hardware.

1 out of 5 eggsThe worst customer service ever

Pros: Wouldn't really know. Most others seem to like it.

Cons: 1) See below for details.
2) Basically, it arrived DOA.
3) Newegg no longer accepts the product back; instead, customer is forced to deal directly with ASUS (see below for details).
4) ASUS actually requires a copy of your driver's license (front and back), as well as a copy of your credit card (front and back) before they will agree to fix it. I seriously thought that I was being scammed by a hacker when I got that demand.

Other Thoughts: So here is what happened:
1) Arrived DOA. But no obvious physical defects in the MBO.
2) Swapped out power units, graphics cards, other cards, etc. No luck.
3) I tried really hard to put everything back in the box nicely, but (and I freely acknowledge the following) it is likely that I bent some pins in the process.
4) ASUS insisted that the MBO was beyond repair, and the reason it didn't work was the bent pins. Of course, since they weren't bent when I got it, that couldn't be true.
5) They offered to replace it (new unit) for about 2/3 of what I paid for it. I agreed.
6) That's when they sent (by email) requests for all of "proof" that my credit card was valid.
7) I provided them the proof, but heard nothing back from them for 1 month.
8) Then I got an email saying they were returning the worthless board because they had not heard from me!
9) While it is true that I never called them on the phone, I did take the time to fill out an email customer satisfaction survey that they sent me. Needless to say, it was not a favorable survey. Nobody at ASUS followed up on my complaints.
10) Previously, dating back almost 10 years, I have been a big fan of ASUS products. No more. While this is the first time I have had an issue, the whole experience has soured me on the company. Even if the chance of a problem is 10%, it really isn't worth taking the chance.
11) I am serious when I say that the customer service that I experienced from ASUS is the absolute worst of any company in any field, even notoriously bad cable companies. If you are skeptical, see a somewhat similar review of another ASUS MBO on this same website.
12) I tried to post an earlier review, albeit written after consuming several alcoholic beverages, but it was rejected. I hope that this one goes through.
13) I seriously doubt that other companies would tolerate these issues.
