    This is a great motherboard. It has lots of nice features and I like how it looks. I got this as part of a motherboard + CPU combo.

    At the price I paid, very solid. Comes with an OSX compatible WiFi card, two graphics card slots and a CPU temperature LED on the board, M2 and Sata Express slots.

    Got this motherboard on an insane deal (over $100 off), but recommend it for any price really. Wifi has worked great, tons of case fan headers, SATA inputs, clearly marked. Nice clean finish as well.

    Great motherboard. Has wifi and sound built in, making it much easier to install.

    This is the easy button of motherboards! But if you don't care much about built-in Wifi and Bluetooth you can get the regular Asus Z97 Pro for less money.

    Awesome MOBO. Cannot say enough good things. The looks are on-point with an all black PCB, and has features for days. Its looks good, and matches perfectly with the gold scheme I am planing. It is great for overclocking, and comes with the Asus utility to monitor fans, as well as a really slick UEFI BIOS. Works great for a hackintosh without a DSDT. As far as ports go it is pretty loaded. It has 4 USB 3.0, and more 2.0s. It has so many graphics ports, supporting pretty much every type. Also, the main reason I liked it was for the onboard Bluetooth and Wifi AC. Reason being at the time there was no supported wireless AC cards for hackintoshs and I wanted the benefits of AC as I just got a new AC router. Both work great, and work without any drivers in Windows 10. Plenty of SATA, as well as PCI slots. Also has M.2 and SATA Express for faster storage configurations. Has onboard power, and code display. Overall really solid board, with plenty of features, and functionality to support upgrades for some time.

    It's a good board with all the features you need, but there are some hiccups.

    The good: Lots of rear I/O, easy and clean BIOS, advanced features easy to get to, well spaced PCIe slots, great multi-GPU support, great color scheme

    The bad: The motherboard heatsinks are held on poorly, overclocking in the BIOS is more complicated than it should be, too many sub-sub-sub-menus (all the arrows!!), CPU power and 24-pin sockets are annoyingly hard to route due to placement, not enough fan headers to comfortable fill a standard ATX case without using a splitter/hub

    This motherboard was the best at the time, I used Elite Gaming Computers, Pegasus build as a reference for a good motherboard for the i7-4790K. The Wi-Fi capabilities and the bluetooth are fantastic, they stretch super far and when I had a crappy ethernet cable, it really helped me out. Definitely would recommend this to whoever wants to use an LGA 1150 CPU, top of the line, top quality. The only reason I'm giving it four stars is that it had bent CPU pins when I received it, ASUS was super quick to resolve the problem and I got it back in less than 5 days.
