    Hey Jesse, any idea when these will hit retail / Newegg?

    Looking forward to use one of these in my new PC build.

    I'd expect to see them very soon. Haswell launches on June 3, so watch for the boards around that time too.
  5. Nooooooo !

    I loved the blue ones!!

    Are these boards being released with the fixed Haswell chipsets? Or are we going to have to look for specific steppings or revisions?

    All of the first batches will have the issue I think, no matter what brand.

    I really like the gold scheme on the Deluxe. I really want to see the basic ASUS P8Z87V. The new Sabertooth is a nice improvement. I feel like the minor revisions with Haswell allowed motherboard manufacturers to focus on aesthetics more than new features.

    "Windows 8 Ready!" on the PCB.

    ^Was that really necessary, ASUS?

    Looks like the recent competition from Asrock, MSI and Gigabyte has got Asus on the ball again, new configurations and color schemes, better audio, etc. The fight for market share guarantees that there will be many interesting product launches in the next few weeks.

    I wish Asus had RoG boards in blue and black.

    Yeah, I have only used ASUS throughout they years but I am willing to try a Gigabyte or Asrock. As for the blue color schemes, I bet the lower end boards (non-deluxe) will have that.
  14. Years ago have a WS series board - incredible quality of build
    is the Sabertooth some kind of replacement of WS series?
  15. ...oooohhh.... (excited)

    Loving the gold colorway, was just thinking of making my case mesh gold for Cosmos 2 and going this black/gold color scheme, let see how it goes.

    Best part is that 99% of these motherboards won't be seen enough to make them look cool :p

    I had to buy a new motherboard a few months back but after reading of the very high failure rates on the ASUS boards, I went with Gigabyte instead. The boards above look very nice but I'd still be wary of going with ASUS until the boards have been out for a while and the quality confirmed.

    No they still make WS boards, the TUF series boards (AKA Sabertooth) are made for longevity and anal retentive temp monitoring.

    So secsi. I'll look at prices when they're out, but I think I'm totally gunning for that Hero. That Delux looks stunning, but I'm guessing it's going to cost a small fortune.
