Most underrated mobo. Works well and has the sexiest lights on it.

The most affordable Z97 Motherboard on the market at the time, and it runs perfectly! Also has this cool orange LED outline, which I didn't expect so that was pretty cool to see!

Really nice mobo. Does the job for a lower price than most Z97 boards, and has enough features to satisfy regular users (enthusiasts look elsewhere). While I would have liked right angle connectors on the ATX power and front panel USB 3.0, I really can't complain for the price I paid.

from completed build Horny for an Upgrade

Got a z97 so I won't need to upgrade my motherboard for a long, long time and I can get an i7 in the future with the option to overclock. I'm new at this but this is a awesome MB I think. It has a nice bios interface for a noob like me. Nothing wrong with it so far. Got it for only 73$ after rebate through newegg

Great board, has the features I need, but only 2 SATA cables? Really?

Great mobo. Worked out of the box. Has plenty of USB ports and all the features I will need for my endeavors. Had a random orange LED strip I didn't know about, so that's cool if that's your color scheme.

So far so good. The LED lighting was an unexpected "bonus," but it doesn't match with the red of the RAM or the water cooler LED.

Different ATX size than normal, yet it is a full fledged Z97 motherboard! Even has a cool toggle for an orange LED track, tracing the Audio on the PCB.

Since I can't think of any other explanation, I'm giving the credit to the better overclock to the mobo.

Very solid durable motherboard and has never caused me a problem.
