ASUS Z97-Deluxe Motherboard Review
This certainly adds to the BOM costs, but does provide a lot of flexibility by adding dual 10Gbps links. Since there are many unused devices an a board like this, ASUS keeps power consumption low by managing the power that goes to the CPU as well as additional onboard components.
That means ASUS has expertise not just in the internal components, but also putting together complete systems and accessories. The device also acts as a two port USB 3.
The device is not large but since ASUS is using standard external WiFi antennae connectors, there are many possibilities to use even larger options. ASUS is also expanding beyond just focusing on the motherboard and is providing components that sit outside of the chassis. Overall, great trends on the hardware side.
For example, it can be used to overclock the processor, manage power saving features, monitor onboard health. AiSuite has many features, which we have reviewed previously, but for those wanting a quick synopsis it is the set of tools ASUS provides to monitor, tune and extract value from their platform. Fan Xpert 2 is a key feature in AiSuite III as it allows a user to fine tune their fan settings for an ASUS Z87-DELUXE/DUAL ASMedia SATA mix of cooling performance versus noise generation.
ASUS Z87 Deluxe/Dual Motherboard Review
The lower USB 3. Once the LED goes out, the flash operation is completed and the board can be booted.
ASUS Z87-DELUXE/DUAL ASMedia SATA the PCI-Express x16 slots, the board supports full x16 bandwidth with a single card, x8 bandwidth with cards in the primary and secondary slots with two cards populated, and x8 in the primary and x4 in the secondary and tertiary slots with three cards populated. Additionally, there is sufficient space between the primary PCI-Express x16 slot and the secondary PCI-Express x1 slot to accommodate a tri-slot cooler.
To the upper right of the primary PCI-Express x1 slot are two 4-pin system fan headers. ASUS placed the board's audio components on a physically separate PCB to minimize noise and crosstalk from other integrated components.
ASUS ZDeluxe (NFC & WLC) -
While the PCB separator line is not illuminated with the board powered, you can easily see the separator. The Q-Code diagnostic display is a 2-digit hex display used for troubleshooting motherboard boot related issues. First we have physical power and reset buttons.
The small red button is a clear CMOS button. For a site dedicated to server and workstation hardware, where many manufacturers make users bridge gaps with screwdrivers to clear CMOS, this is a great feature. There are ASUS Z87-DELUXE/DUAL ASMedia SATA total on the motherboard.
Most users will have solid state drives, hard drives and optical drives. The impact of this motherboard is that it provides for plenty of expansion options beyond what a user builds the system with on day 1.
Just counting there are: First, we are finally seeing more USB 3. In terms of wired ASUS Z87-DELUXE/DUAL ASMedia SATA, in this class of motherboard we would have liked to see ASUS stay with the dual Intel NIC solution they used previously, but for many uses the Realtek NIC will work and can be enabled with ASUS Z87-DELUXE/DUAL ASMedia SATA Windows 8 drivers at installation. The WiFi solution is a dual band solution that costs a bit more to implement, but is almost necessary in current higher-density environments such as offices and apartments.
