Product on Review: Z87-A
Manufacturer and Sponsor: ASUS
Street Price: £115 (At time of review)
Whilst ASUS’ Republic of Gamers series has enjoyed lots of attention throughout the Intel 6 and 7 series, their mainstream segment motherboards have been somewhat pushed into the background compared to rival brands and their more affordable options. But with the introduction of Intel’s 8 series motherboards ASUS have redesigned their motherboards in a bid to diversify and today we are turning to their mainstream category to see whether the new wave of Z87 motherboards compare against the popular motherboards we have already reviewed.
The Z87-A is an affordable LGA1150 motherboard with plenty of features to keep even avid enthusiasts entertained. Modelling the new gold theme, this motherboard promises to perform and overclock just as well as other mainstream and even higher-end models – will it have what it takes to impress us?
