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.

4 out of 5 eggsm.2 update

Pros: Stable, easy one-click overclocking. Latest bios supports Devil's Canyon as well. I always though built-in WiFi and Bluetooth was silly but it's come in handy. Asus AI suite in Windows is pretty slick, but I can't figure out why it doesn't synchronize its settings with the bios settings.

Cons: I still can't get to recognize my samsung xp941 ssd, but I got a plextor m6e to work just fine and it even boots thanks to its built-in bios rom. Asus bios still says m.2 port is Empty. *shrug*

I'm hoping a bios update will fix that and I've also read that you have to go the UEFI route to get it to boot.

Other Thoughts: To the person who was worried about accessing the m.2 port under the motherboard:

Any case worth anything should have a big enough opening on the motherboard tray to mount coolers and should also be large enough to access the m.2 port without having to remove the motherboard. However, I I think the bigger problem is lack of airflow over the ssd to keep it cool. Fortunately my case is vented in that area, but I'm sure many others are not.

Also, I wish Intel x79 m.2 was pcie x4 instead of x2. I know other boards have workarounds, but I wanted Asus.

5 out of 5 eggsAnother mini-itx powerhouse

Pros: Slick new BIOS user interface. They pack a ton of features into a small board. The voltage regulator module is even smaller this time around. It's an Asus board - need I say more?

Cons: I also own an Asus Z87I-Deluxe. The Z97I-Plus comes with a reduction in the number of SATA ports (from 6 to 4) and fan connectors (from 3 to 2). Would have preferred that those connector options not change.

Other Thoughts: I was using the board with Corsair 1866Mhz DDR3 memory. Initially the system would lock up if I I clocked the memory above 1333Mhz. This was fixed quickly with a BIOS update. Asus is awesome!

4 out of 5 eggswas excited for m.2

Pros: So far so good, everything seems to be working well, plus decent overclocks on a 4770k and 2400mhz ram.

Cons: The m.2 port appears to not be working, or I have a DOA Samsung XP941, or there's some kind of compatibility issue. The bios just says the m.2 port is empty. Not sure what to do as I don't have any other m.2 ports or pcie adapter... yet.

5 out of 5 eggsSmall but feature-packed

Pros: -Has most of the connections you could want including M.2 for new SSD's.
-AC WiFi
-Awesome BIOS and applications
-Stable so far
-Feels sturdy/well built
-8. Count them, 8, USB ports! And 4 are 3.0!

Cons: -M.2 plug is actually on the underside of the motherboard, so if you're planning on upgrading to that you'll need to completely remove it from the case.
-The WiFi antennae headers interfere with the front panel audio out, making it difficult to plug both in.
-Thankfully they include a front panel I/O organizer, because good luck getting those plugged in with everything else going on in there.

Other Thoughts: Put this in a BitFenix Phenom case for a mini-ITX gaming rig. Managed to cram 3 HDD's and an SSD into it along with an R9 270. I'm just waiting for it to overheat...

-Only has 3 fan headers (all 4-pin though), one more wouldn't hurt.
-My case has room for many more drives than the 4 SATA connectors allow for. 6 Would have been nice... but there isn't any more room. In any case, putting two on either side of the RAM slots was a strange decision for cable routing.

For all my nit-picky complaints, this board does have a lot going for it, but with some minor layout issues you have to wonder if it would have been better with fewer features... but then you come to your senses and realize its actually quite good.
