Asus Z97-AR Review

Now that Intel, the world's leading chipmaker, has released its latest platform, BIOS has advanced significantly, and many users have jumped on the Z97 motherboard series. The ASUS Z97-A ups the ante when it comes to getting a good product for a reasonable price, with many of the features we all look for from ASUS, such as a great software package and a wide-open BIOS ready for tweaking. It also offers some fantastic memory support and that curious little SATA Express implementation that many other boards have chosen not to support. I was fortunate enough to receive an early SATA Express drive sample to utilize in my testing, so there's something to look forward to with the ASUS Z97-A, which has a lot of capacity for future upgrades thanks to its SATA Express connector.

Asus Z97-AR Price: Asus Z97-AR's current price is $139.99 according to Amazon

System Optimization

Overclocking power, energy conservation, digital power, customized fan management, and customized networking and audio settings are all available.
5 way to optimize Asus Z97-AR Motherboard

With a single click, you can make all of the difficult adjustments. ASUS 5-Way Optimization makes your PC smart. It optimizes important aspects of your system in real-time, resulting in exceptional CPU performance, everyday energy savings, ultra-stable digital power, cool and quiet fans, and now even networking and audio settings that are suited to the apps you're using. In a sentence, 5-Way Optimization makes your PC ideal for gaming, entertainment, productivity, and just about anything else!
  • Games run quickly and smoothly because to high speed, premium bandwidth, and realistic sound.
  • Fans are whisper quiet when used for normal computing, yet they provide excellent cooling when gaming.
  • You will save money by reducing energy waste.

Fan Xpert 3 Cooling System

Asus Z97-AR Motherboard Xpert Fan Cooling System
For maximum cooling and quietness, advanced fan controls are used. The 4-pin/3-pin CPU and case fan controls are combined in Fan Xpert 3. Based on the dedicated area temperatures recorded by hardware thermal sensors, it evaluates the characteristics of each fan and provides specific settings for each one. Ensure that each fan provides the best possible combination of cooling performance and quiet operation. Fan Xpert 3 supports hardware-level PWM/DC combo mode for both CPU and case fans. It can also drop the CPU fan RPM down below the default minimum during light loads for extra-quiet and power-saving operation.

Overclocking memory in a unique way

Memory can now be run at speeds of up to 3200 MHz (OC)! Our innovative T-Topology architecture allows for optimal memory overclocking under full load by decreasing connection noise and signal reflection. The memory channels are evenly spaced from the CPU, allowing for the most balanced handling of several memory modules and overall increased memory compatibility.

SATA Express allows you to increase the speed of your storage

SATA Express employs two PCI-E 2.0 lanes to provide data transfer speeds of up to 10Gbit/s, addressing future bandwidth demands. Current SSDs can transfer up to 550MB/s, which is close to the saturation point of the SATA 6Gbit/s connection. SATA Express is a next-generation connectivity standard that ensures you and your system do not fall behind the times. It can be used with up to two SATA SSDs.

M.2 will help your computer run faster

M.2 supports data transfer rates of up to 10Gbit/s thanks to two native PCI Express 2.0 bandwidths. It's a good choice for an operating system disk because it boosts the overall performance of your computer. It features Intel® Rapid Storage Technology for even faster data access, automated application refresh, and instant wake-up!

Upgrade to super-fast Thunderbolt speed

The ASUS ThunderboltEX II series is the first Intel®-certified ThunderboltTM 2 add-on card, allowing you to upgrade your existing build to Thunderbolt technology at any time. Bidirectional transfer speeds of up to 10Gbit/s are available, which is four times (4X) quicker than USB 3.0! While using bandwidth-hungry storage devices, enjoy video in stunning detail on the latest 4K/UHD (ultra-high-definition) monitors.

Intel CPU & chipset features

Intel® LGA1150 4th and 5th Generation Core i7/Core i5/Core i3/Pentium®/Celeron® Processors are now available

This motherboard supports Intel® CoreTM i7/i5/i3/Pentium®/Celeron® CPUs in the LGA1150 package, with integrated iGPU, memory, and PCI Express controllers for onboard graphics output, 2-channel (4 DIMM) DDR3 memory, and 16 PCI Express 3.0/2.0 lanes. As a result, the graphics performance is great.

Chipset Intel® Z97 Express

The Intel® Z97 Express Chipset, which is a single-chipset design, supports Intel® LGA1150 4th, New 4th, and 5th Generation CoreTM i7/CoreTM i5/CoreTM i3/Pentium®/Celeron® CPUs. It boosts performance by utilizing serial point-to-point communications, which offer increased bandwidth and reliability. The Z97 has a maximum of 6 USB 3.0 ports, 6 SATA 6Gb/s ports, and 1GB/s M.2 compatibility for faster data retrieval. The Intel® Z97 Express Chipset also supports iGPU capabilities, allowing consumers to take advantage of the latest Intel integrated graphics performance.

Intel® Smart Response Technology of SSD speed with HDD capacity 

An installed fast SSD (minimum 18.6GB accessible capacity required) is employed as a cache for frequently accessed data. Two key advantages include reduced load and wait times, as well as lower power consumption due to the elimination of unnecessary hard disk spin. This technology combines SSD performance with hard drive capacity, resulting in a system that is up to 6 times faster than a system with just a hard drive.

 Intel® Smart Connect Technology 

Even in sleep mode, your computer can get web updates with new content for selected programs. This means you'll spend less time waiting for apps to update and sync with the cloud, allowing you to get more work done.

Intel® Rapid Start Technology

Allows you to quickly wake up your computer from a low-power hibernation state. It saves your system memory to the specified SSD, which gives your computer a faster wake-up response time while consuming less energy.
