ASUS’s mainstream line of Z87 motherboards can be quite overwhelming as there are a number of different boards in the lineup. While ASUS has motherboard lines for specific segments like gamers and overclockers the mainstream line are boards that are made for pretty much everyone. Today we are talking a look at a pretty interesting motherboard in the mainstream line, the Z87-Expert. It has two very unique features, the first is the addition of 802.11n WiFi and the other is Intel Thunderbolt. If you happen to need these two features on a motherboard this could be the perfect one for you. Other features of this board include, ASUS’s DIGI+ Power Control, 8 SATA 6GB/s ports, USB 3.0 support, and ASUS’s Ai Suite III software. Let’s take a look…
The Z87-Expert comes in ASUS’s typical packaging. While the front is rather plain the back goes into detail on many of the features of the motherboard and gives you a full overview.
Opening the box up inside we find the motherboard along with a full compliment of accessories. These include 2 bags of SATA cables, WiFi antenna, I/O shield, SLI bridge, driver and software CD and user’s guide.
