5 out of 5 eggsDon't hesitate to buy it

Pros: Good quality, good packaging
WiFi works great for me
The placement of items on this board I feel is superior to a lot of the other z97 ITX cases.
Updating the BIOS was completely painless.
The options in the BIOS for overclocking and other things are endless.

Cons: This applies for all ASUS boards. The AI Software suite will give you c̶a̶n̶c̶e̶r̶ 2 minute boot times. I recommend only installing parts of it if anything at all. Most of the things the software suite does can be done better with other software or through the BIOS.

Other Thoughts: My build:

i7 4790k, EVGA GTX 980 Reference, 16gb Corsair Vengeance 2400mhz, 2x Crucial BX100 in Raid 0, Seasonic 750w gold, Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ITX.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect.

Pros: front usb 3, WiFi, M.2 Basically every feature that a high end z97 ATX mobo has in an itx platform. This board was perfect for my RVZ01 build.

Cons: None as of yet. I have only had the board a few days and I have had zero issues. As far as people complaining about the Bluetooth not working correctly, mine works flawlessly. As far as reliability I can only expect the best. I have RMAd a 990fx saber tooth

3 out of 5 eggsGreat motherboard, defect one though

Pros: Very nice UEFI software. The Easy Mode is really easy to understand and it lays out all the most common config in one single page (without scrolling)
Performance is great, installation is easy. Didn't run into any issue with cable management.

Cons: Make slight but audible buzz sound when move mouse, even in BIOS!! Definitely seem like a defect, had to remove everything from motherboard to diagnose the source.

Other Thoughts: returned the item

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.

Manufacturer Response:

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,
