Bought this to replace my dying Z87-A. I've stuck with ASUS products for years now as I've always found their product support to be excellent (drivers, firmware, RMA) as well as the capabilities and uefi/bios to be easy to use and understand as well as their website in finding updates. This one is no different. Installs and looks great. On board buttons and connectors are easy to find and they always provide tones of 4 pin headers for fans etc. The m.2 connector seems to be of a first generation design (2 pcei pipelines vs the standard 4) as well as the ability to access/use SMART controls with the m.2 seem to be non exsistent (My friends new Z170-A chip-set and identical m.2 SSD work just fine with SMART control and has the full 4 lanes). Great upgrade as I don't need to upgrade the system as a whole for a while yet. (Read More)
