Check out these quotes from Asus Sabertooth Z87 reviews & previews
"The value proposition for this board isn’t clear-cut. For $259.99 (Amazon|Newegg), the ASUS Z87 SABERTOOTH is an expensive ATX motherboard, and for the same or a lower price you can get other Z87 ATX motherboards that have more (obvious) features, such as onboard WiFi/Bluetooth or POST code displays. The benefits of the TUF lineup are not those that can be easily discerned in a review like this; rather, it’s a statement of durability and reliability that you pretty much have to take on faith. So it boils down to function over flash, and you’ll have to decide how important either is for yourself."
"The ASUS Z87 Sabertooth is a wonderful piece of engineering that brings a breath of fresh air to the motherboard market – it is great to see a motherboard vendor take an innovative approach to motherboard design that focuses on something other than performance (not to say that this doesn’t have performance because it has loads of it!). If you’re looking for a durable, reliable and well built piece of quality computer kit that is going to last you ages then the ASUS Sabertooth Z87 motherboard should be right up your street. The Sabertooth Z87 motherboard is the Swiss Army Knife of the motherboard market."
"My experience with the Sabertooth Z87 was extremely pleasing. I had no problems with it at all. I did have one issue that gave me slight concern. As you have noticed we have switched all our testing criteria to be done while the system is overclocked to 4.5GHz with a 1866MHz RAM clock with 16GB of memory installed. We now do two stages of stability testing on the open air bench; first we test 24 hours using Prime95, then we test again with no airflow on the motherboard. One thing we have learned is that some systems can pull off the 48 hours of testing at full load at 4.5GHz (1.28v vCore) without issue and some simply cannot. The Sabertooth Z87 could not do more than 12 hours under full load even though our temperatures shown by the Thermal Radar 2 were between "normal" and "good" ratings. Now that we have had time with a number of Z87 motherboards, I can say that this is not the only high end motherboard to act this way, but it is the first ASUS motherboard that we have seen this behavior from. Dropping the clock back to 4.4GHz/1866MHz would allow us to run the 48 hours of stress testing. It is hard to ding the motherboard for this when we back up and think about it not being marketed at all as an enthusiast overclocking solution. Outside of encoding for days at a time, I do not see this as being a strike against this motherboard."
"This board will prove popular with the ASUS audience. The BIOS hasn’t been changed too much, and will feel immediately intuitive to an ASUS veteran. Plenty of overclocking settings, including class leading voltage regulation options. Superb motherboard."
"When it comes down to it if you want an extremely reliable motherboard with quality components that you know is going to last a long time the ASUS Z87 Motherboard is the definite choice."
