Asus Z97 Deluxe Motherboard Review

This is my review of the Asus Z97 Deluxe and my first experience with the new Z97 chipset.
What do you think of Asus’s new design?

02:35 The board
05:29 Close up tour
11:31 Rear IO
11:54 Quick look at the BIOS
14:51 Overclocking
18:16 Quick look at AI Suite/Software
20:57 Conclusion

Pricing & Availability:

Overclocking tests were done over two days with 2 hours of Aida64 being classed as stable.

Test Bench Specs:
Maximus VI Formula or Z97 Deluxe
Intel i7 4770K
Corsair H80i with SP120
16GB 1600MHz Dominator Pro Memory
Corsair AX1200 PSU
Dimastech EasyXL

Other overclocking settings:
The LLC, UnCore, VCCIN/VRIN and vRing were also managed during the manual overclocks. I did not mention these settings in the video as there was not a noticeable difference between the 2 boards worth pointing out, so I used the same settings for both boards.

Overclocking results are not comparable to other reviewers results, as every CPU has different characteristics and will not react the same to voltages/clocks/settings.
