    This is more an overview than a review

    Why would you think that? There are 18 benchmark results in the table section, plus overclocking results for the CPU.

    Thanks for covering the cooling options Tarinder. The sort of thing that's really important but is often overlooked.

    I recently built a system based on a ASUS Z97-K and the automatic cooling profiling stunned me. You can do it in their ASUS Probe software too, so in Windows in 2 clicks you can switch from normal to full speed or completely silent, or anywhere in between. It entirely does away with the need for a fan-controller.

    I've never been gobsmacked by motherboard manufacturer's software, but ASUS has torn up the rule-book recently.

    Re: Asus X99-Deluxe

    Reviews like this just end up tempting me to buy into features that I will only use a few times when I set up the PC but once I've played with them I end up disabling or ignoring, like overclocking features, I overclocked my current CPU to 4.7ghz when I first got my rig running but now run it at stock. I have to learn to make buying decisions that aren't based on features that I won't need but instead concentrate on components that give me benefits I do need.

    Still a great and thorough review, thanks.

    This is gorgeous. I think I'd be tempted to frame it without it ever being used
