5 out of 5 eggsExcellent board

Pros: ASUS has always been my favorite. Ease of BIOS configuration, good documentation. What I thought was going to be a simple PC for web-surfing, it is much more than that.

Cons: Not really a problem with the board, BIOS update utility states all is current. It was 3 behind the current.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat board with a few quirks

Pros: + typical high quality Asus construction (uh, except for one thing, see below), no coil whine, great component placement

+ great UEFI BIOS interface

+ built-in overclocking utility in the UEFI - this is so, so great. I haven't really overclocked a processor since the Northwood P4 / Palomino Athlon XP days and wasn't really sure where to start. Having a one-click option to get me started was a big help

+ design aesthetics - some may not even care, but I dig the color choices for the components of this board, very understated

+ m.2 slot supports the full size 2280 spec cards, both SATA and PCIe modes of operation, so it'll work with anything

Cons: - the one thing that wasn't typical of Asus' usual quality: the plastic "retention clip" thing at the end of the PCIe slot snapped off with very little pressure; doesn't have any effect on the board's performance and capabilities, but I thought it was odd that other users had the same experience

- m.2 slot location on the underside of the board, fine for initial system install, but if you're working in a mini ITX case, the only way you might be able to replace the drive is to remove the motherboard entirely

- odd that the wifi antenna leads have to be connected to the backplate the way they do; could make uninstall a little more complex (if, for example, you need to remove the board to replace the m.2 SSD)

Other Thoughts: - Azurewave wifi-ac, a note for Ubuntu users (of which I am one): I expected an Atheros chipset and instead discovered a Broadcom one. Thankfully, Ubuntu 14.04 had support in the LiveCD environment (or after an install) by installing "additional drivers"

- tall heatsink along the edge of the board with the 8pin AUX power connector may interfere with some wider low profile heatsinks; on the one I am using I had to bend a heatpipe slightly to make sure it would fit properly; different heatsink designs may not have this problem and I may try one or two others in the future to see if one fits better

- not a fault of the board, but something to consider with component choice: I bought low profile DIMMs for this system, but not "very low profile" and I found this meant I needed to orient the heatsink with the heatpipes coming out of the base parallel to the DIMMs, which is when I noticed the above about having to bend a heatpipe slightly to make everything fit

4 out of 5 eggsVery happy

Pros: -Overall very impressive quality.
-Great layout with enough room for a big CPU air cooler (although I went for an H90).
-The UEFI bios are great and I was able to get a 4790K stable at 4.7Ghz at 1.300v in a mini-ITX case.
-Tons of USB 3.0 ports
-Also a very high quality I/O shield.

Cons: The little PCIe slot notch broke off without much force applied to it. It's not worth an RMA. Luckily My case (Node 304) has a mechanism to lock the GPU securely in place anyway.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat board

Pros: Love the board. Easy to install, good layout, was able to fit the tower cooler (Noctua NH U9B) with no issues. I love the Q-connector, makes it so much easier to install

Cons: The latch on the PCIe broke, it almost feels like the plastic was aged. But i can live with this...

Other Thoughts: It isn't too easy to plug the Wi-Fi cables to the module with fat fingers (my case), but managed to do so.

2 out of 5 eggsAsus Z97I Plus Mobo

Pros: - Very well laid out motherboard
- Good IO shield
- Multiple thermistors for monitoring temperature is nice
- Memory compatibility check feature is nice

Cons: - Having to screw the wireless adapter connections to the back of the IO plate is a little odd (makes for a not so tight connection).
- I had to install the updated bios from the website in order to get it to boot properly (had high system instability before update)
- USB 3.0 ports failed after driver install
- Some downloaded drivers from ASUS website were corrupted
- CPU retention bracket interfered with 3rd party cooling backplate

Other Thoughts: It was a little upsetting that I had such difficulty getting the motherboard and hardware working in tandem in Windows. I've built several computers over the last 15 years and this was one of the bad installs. I originally thought the motherboard was dead (or at least flaky). It runs normally after much headache. It was pretty disappointing.

(Case installed to is Corsair Obsidian 250D)

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: The specs look good. The reviews are highly complementary however the board has a defective memory slot which I have been increasingly running into with ASIS products. I had a similar problem with the ROG V! Board and the P7 Z88. Time to change vendors

Cons: See above regarding memory problems

Other Thoughts: I discovered at exactly the 30 day mark that the memory was 4096 instead of 8 GB so no return to Newegg possible.

5 out of 5 eggsPowerful mITX board

Pros: Incredible performance, bios layout and features. The IO plate foam coating makes it hard to allign the motherboard over the standoffs completely.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsbenchmark for mITX

Pros: -Crams in everything you need for a SFF build
-Above average organization
-Asus
-Quality I/O shield

Cons: -Would prefer if the front panel audio was closer to the USB 2.0.
-Something like 1mm between my RAM and CPU heatsink.

Other Thoughts: Will be interesting to see how early mobos with m.2 adapt to future generations of SSDs.

5 out of 5 eggsNice little board

Pros: Everything works well. Nice feature set. Decent layout and usability considering the small form factor.

Cons: None really. Cable connectors fit very tightly on the WiFi Module.

Other Thoughts: Still in the testing stage, but I'm optimistic.
