Product Description

Asus Z87-Plus Socket 1150 HDMI DVI Mini DisplayPort 8-Channel HD Audio ATX Motherboard

The Asus Z87 Plus motherboard features one click optimisation with automatic overclocking.  This easy to fit motherboard will release the potential of your computer allowing it to take gaming and multimedia applications to the extreme.

Just One Click

The unique Asus 4-way optimisation technology allows four processors to be controlled with a single click.  The performance of the TPU (TurboV Processing Unit) is maximised with auto-tuning to deliver a CPU boost; the EPU ramps up the energy efficiency; Fan Xpert 2 optimises fan control and delivers maximum cooling with the minimum of noise; And Digi+ ensures maximum power delivery.

In short.  Overclocking is done for you and efficiency is increased - automatically.

Remote GO!  

Wirelessly link your PC to your smartphone, TV and other devices to create a whole new world of possibilities.  You can remotely access your PC from your phone or watch a movie playing on your PC on a big screen HD TV.  Content can also be transferred between your PC and tablet quickly and seamlessly with just one click.

More Great Features

As you would expect from an Asus motherboard the Z87 Plus is packed with great features and functionality.  The graphic BIOS is easily controlled with a mouse and its intuitive functionality makes it easy to access and change settings.

Fast Transfer

With plenty of USB 3.0 ports fast transfer speed is built in.  But Asus have added USB 3.0 boost that makes it even faster - up to 170% more than standard USB 3.0.  

The Engine Room

At the heart of the motherboard is of course the Intel Z87 Express Chipset.  The Z87 supports socket LGA1150 4th Generation Core i7/i5/i3 processors.
