Product details

Enhance your PC's performance when you install the Asus Z87-A Intel® Z87 ATX Motherboard with 1150 Socket.

Twice as smart

Employing groundbreaking dual intelligent processors – an EPU (Energy Processing Unit) and TPU (TurboV Processing Unit), this new-generation motherboard also comes with DIGI+ VRM.

This gives you accurate Vcore PWM, built-in graphics voltages and frequency module adjustments with negligible power loss via BIOS tuning and a proprietary user interface that raises the board's overclocking range and allows it to achieve its full performance potential.

Digital power and precision

The Asus Z87-A Intel® Z87 ATX Motherboard empowers you with ASUS DIGI+ VRM digital power design that offers superior flexibility and total precision to make sure you enjoy optimized performance, superior system stability and better power efficiency.

The motherboard has been made for users who need frequent BIOS access – enter the BIOS when the PC is on standby at the touch of a button. This convenient feature saves you time during boot-up, doing away with the need to constantly press the DEL key.

BIOS by your side

You'll benefit from the incorporation of media-renowned UEFI BIOS from Asus that gives you incredibly smooth mouse-controlled graphical BIOS and more intuitive functions that swiftly transport you to your favourite BIOS pages and frequently-accessed settings using custom shortcuts.

Write quick notes in-BIOS to refer to later, see an activity log of setting changes and modifications, and rename SATA ports. There's a whole new look to EZ Mode that's been enhanced with user-friendly functions including detailed fan controls, XMP profile settings, SATA information and rapid clock adjustment. Enjoy a perfect BIOS experience.

A better interface

When you use the Asus Z87-A Intel® Z87 Motherboard, you'll get a new user experience with its clearer, more attractive interface that supports larger monitors. This consolidates all the exclusive Asus features into one easy-to-use package, so you can supervise overclocking, energy consumption, fan speeds, voltages and more.

You'll feel the diversity and fluidity of this new interface, an all-in-one app that does away with the need to switch back and forth between different utilities.

More PC protection

5X Protection guards your computer, using quality components such as DIGI+VRM digital power design that supplies accurate CPU power on demand, ESD units tested to exacting standards that overcome electrostatic interference and resettable fuses around DRAM slots that prevent overcurrent and short-circuit damage.

Corrosion-resistant I/O shields are durable and help your computer stay more stable and reliable, and Asus USB 3.0 Boost technology provides support for UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocal) USB 3.0 in Windows 8.

This notably increases transmission speeds for USB devices by up to 170%, contributing more speed to an already-fast USB 3.0 performance. Asus software automatically accelerates data rates for compatible USB 3.0 peripherals without requiring user interaction.

Cooler computer performance

Hardware-level Asus Fan Xpert 2 technology lets you attain more fine-tuned control, featuring Fan Auto Tuning that gives you a tailored fan speed setting for each 4-pin/3-pin CPU and chassis fan with automatic fan speed detection.

Your PC will achieve the ideal balance of cooling performance and low noise, and there's even an RPM Fixed Mode if you need to cut down noise levels to almost 0 dB with a specific fan speed setting.

Remote linkup

You can wirelessly connect PCs, tablets, smartphones and TVs using a LAN cable and router with Remote GO!.

This gives you the facility to stream multimedia content from your PC to your HDTV, access your computer anywhere using smart devices at home, and transfer files to and from your PC easily.

Remote GO! links PCs, tablets, smartphones, and TVs wirelessly through a LAN cable and router. It allows you to stream multimedia content from PC to your HDTV, access your computer anywhere using smart devices at home, and easily transfer files to and from your computer.

The motherboard has also been upgraded with Cloud GO!, which synchronises multiple cloud storage accounts and backs up content to your machine with a single click.
