3 out of 5 eggsBluetooth is completely unusable

Pros: -BIOS Layout/Features
-Slot Support/Performance

Cons: BIOS Flashing (within Windows)
Bluetooth

Other Thoughts: I would've rated this 4-5 stars. I had a slight problem flashing BIOS from boot drive within Windows and got stuck in BIOS asking to reflash with same BIOS file and getting "reading failed!" message. Don't use the flasher utility within Windows, flash BIOS only from the BIOS utility (USB). My main annoyance has been with Bluetooth. I have been at the PC for hours installing and reinstalling drivers to get my devices recognized in Windows. The device shows in Device Manager but as it turns out the range for the bluetooth module on this machine is incredibly poor. I stood with my phone next to the PC case and finally got it to recognize and pair but as soon as I get more than say a few inches from the machine it will be too far to communicate and initiate any kind of connection. It seems to me this could easily be solved with a driver update. The range is pathetic, unusable.

5 out of 5 eggsCamaro Computer Build

Pros: Asus Z97I-Plus Mini ITX is a great board. I have been using Asus motherboards & overclocking for over 20 years.
You need to use compatible memory and have a good power supply for these boards to function properly under load. My currant system is the Camaro Car build- Asus Z97I-Plus, 16G GSKILL 2400 MEM, Plex 256G PCIE SSD drive, Intel 4790k proc @ 4.5G, 2TB 2.5 HD, Laptop Panasonic Blu-ray burner, 500w PICO power supply XBOX USB game controller, wireless headset, wireless Camaro mouse, LG 24inch LED screen. All in a 10th scale Car Model. Asus is an excellent product.

Cons: Not much I was able to customize the motherboard to my projects without any problems. The size is perfect 6.7x6.7 for Bot building.

Other Thoughts: Over the last 5 years I have built STARWARS ATAT computer, LOSTINSPACE computer and now Camaro computer. The mini ITX is the best for these builds. Using high power 300w to 500w PICO power supplies. You can see my STARWARS ATAT - Techpowerup.com (Case Modding. I have used Asus motherboards for all my builds for reliability and gaming power for over 20 years.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Mobo

Pros: Rock solid performance, not a single hicup yet. Withstood a lot.

Cons: Doesn't overclock too well, but I have and 4790k and I don't think I will have to worry about that but for those that want to overclock I would suggest a slightly higher quality board.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat board, but...

Pros: Great, solid board
Overclockable
Great, easy to use BIOS
Looks good
mITX

Cons: One of the Wifi antenna connectors was bent when I got it. I can only connect one of the wifi connections to the board. The antenna still works, but it isn't optimal.

Other Thoughts: All in all a great board if you're looking to build a mITX system.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Cannot tell..... board didn't post or boot.

Cons: This Asus Z97I-plus came to me DOA. This was going into a new built system with new PSU, CPU, and Memory. No Post beeps and no boot. LED system power on motherboard is on. Turn on power and case fans spins half second then off no spin from CPU fan. Purchase a MSI board and it work first time.

4 out of 5 eggsGood mobo

Pros: It works.

Good selection of video ports (if you want to go with integrated graphics).

Come with WIFI and M.2 port.

Cons: Only 4 SATA ports.

Only 16MB of memory.

The M.2 port is under the motherboard! <facepalm>

Other Thoughts: There are obviously some limitations one has to live with when going for a mini ATX mobo. But the M.2 port under the mobo is just plain stupid. I’m deducting an egg for that.

The clearance between the CPU cooler and memory could be a problem, pick your components carefully. I’m using the Noctua NH-U14S cooler and Mushkin Enhanced Blackline memory. The clearance is just a few millimeters. Memory with extravagant cooling fins would not work in my case.

I'm deducting an egg for the M.2 port under the mobo. Otherwise, I'm satisfied.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Patka,

1 out of 5 eggsBiggest disappointment

Pros: Wouldn't know

Cons: Decided to take the leap and go for a M.2 SSD Mini ITX gaming box.

Pity the supplied screw won't work. Best of luck finding one that size or getting a hold of ASUS support during the holidays.

Never had ASUS disappoint me so massively.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent board

Pros: A lot of stuff in an ITX form factor

Cons: The small form factor can require some patience when installing everything

Other Thoughts: A few of the connectors were tricky for me, mostly because it's been several years since my last system build. Install as many of the connections as possible before installing your cooler, power supply, graphics card, and hard drive. I forgot to connect the WiFi antenna until everything else was in the case, so that ended up being kind of a pain.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat motherboard with excellent WiFi

Pros: The Z97I-PLUS has a great layout the allowed me to fit a giant CPU cooler even with tall RAM. The bios (UEFI) is pretty straight forward and allowed for the XMP overclocking profile for my RAM with one click. Any changes that you make are detailed before you save and exit, so that is a big plus to verify you didn’t accidentally change something while you were in there. The built-in WiFi is also very fast, has excellent range, and a great antenna that can be magnetically attached to your case (It’s on the top of my case in the photos).

Cons: I do have a few minor cons for the board. The wifi connections to the board when you install it are a bit of a pain to snap down and you have to punch out two holes to screw the antenna connectors (did it with a small pair of pliers). The IO shield is also padded, which you think would be a plus but is a pain because the board would not fit completely flush with the case. I managed to get it to fit and the connections are solid but they should have not padded the shield. Last con is that it did not come with motherboard mounting screws (luckily my friend who helped me build it had some in his toolkit).

Other Thoughts: My system:
CPU: i7 4790K
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D14
Motherboard: ASUS Z97I-PLUS mini-ITX
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8 GB (2x4GB) DDR3 2400
GPU: EVGA GTX 750Ti SC
Storage: Intel 730 SSD 480 GB and Intel 520 SSD 120 GB
Case: BitFenix Colossus mini-ITX
Power Supply: Corsair CS450M
OS: Windows 7 Pro (64 bit)
Monitor: Asus VS239H-P 23.0"
Case Fan: Noctua NF-F12
Keyboard: Logitech G710
Mouse: Logitech G502
Speakers: Creative Labs T20
Optical: ASUS external slim DVD writer

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: Great little motherboard. Handles my mid/high-end ITX gaming rig with ease. Good color scheme. My PCI-E lever didn't break :P

Cons: Awkward placement for internal connector for front panel audio ports. Fortunately my rig is built in such a way so that you cannot notice the cable stretched out across the middle of the motherboard.

Other Thoughts: Graphics Card - Gigabyte GTX 970 4GB VRAM
Processor - Intel Core i5-4690K Devil’s Canyon Quad-Core 3.5GHz
Memory - 16GB DDR3 Patriot Viper 3 Low Profile
SSD - 512GB Crucial MX100
Motherboard - ASUS Z97I-PLUS LGA 1150 ITX
PSU - EVGA Supernova 750 G2 Fully Modular
Heatsink - Enermax Black Twister
Case - Rosewill Legacy U2-B-Window
Case Fans - Aero Cool DS 120mm Black
