I'm just disappointed that there is no word on the mPCIe Combo card that we find on the Formula and on the Z87 version. And I can't even find it stand-alone to buy.

I would need wifi...

Would appreciate any advice.

Cheers

Aside from the sound how much different is it from the vi gene? The z87 to z97 jump seems very small

Tom, how could it have
Supports NVIDIA® Quad-GPU SLI™ Technology
Supports AMD Quad-GPU CrossFireX™ Technology
if there are only two PCI-E lanes?

M.2 implementation is rather shitty on those new ASUS.

It's x2 PCI express 2.0 and no space for Μ.2 2280. Put it head to head with the latest e.g. AsRock on a M.2 fast ssd pc mark - and you too shall see...

Lovely board - apart from that ^ and lovely review.

Tom do ever MM the vcore on those? ASUS are generally running pretty close to cpuz indicated, so that's a plus on the o/c side of the board...
