The ASUS Z87I-DELUXE motherboard proves mini-ITX doesn't mean compromised performance, as it's packed to the hilt with features that put it on par with ATX boards. 12+2 DIGI+ VRM (digital power) can create the smallest build with a full-size performance potential, while also including new functions in its UEFI BIOS enhance the tuning experience. Six SATA ports provide an extensive storage array far beyond its size and integrated Intel HD graphics allow you to play streamed content, casual gaming and more. It also works great as the core of a portable gaming PC for LAN parties, with Intel LAN and the space to add your own graphics card.

Here is the link for BIOS for 8.1, don't think it matters as this was a new build.
Here are 2 links with the instructions.
Don't mind step 2 in the link below. Your file name will probably be different. You will be using the renamer tool from the bios utility section of the download page to change the name of your file.
Make sure you use the included driver and software disc as it has important software for controlling the fan speeds. If you do not use it your fans will spin much faster than you would like. One of my fans refused to spin at less than max regardless of what I told it to in the BIOS.
The ASUS AI Suite also handles overclocking. I am not a seasoned overclocker. I was able to get my i5-4690k up to 4.1 GHz through the system BIOS. After removing my overclocking and using the simple overclocking tool ASUS provides it also gave me 4.1GHz. The main differences however is that the ASUS tool was faster to overclocking and it controls the fan speeds more consistently.
I was lucky in that my RAM has a gold heatsink so it matches nicely with the board but the color of the board does not blend in well with other systems IMO.
It comes with a handy front header adapter so you can plug all of the front header plugs into a single plug to make installation easier.
I am using this with a Scythe Big Shuriken 2 Rev. B. CPU cooler. It fits nicely so if you are looking for a SFF build there is mostly no interference. The only thing to look out for is that it will cover the fan headers so make sure you plug those in before you put the cooler on. It isn’t impossible to plug in the fans with the cooler in place but it will make your life easier.
It now refuses to connect to wifi completely, with an access point 10 ft away with a -40 dBM signal. At least 10 other devices are connecting with no problem and high speeds.
Bad driver? Bad antenna? Bad card? Who knows? It's up to Asus to make sure all of those things work properly.
4 fan headers and 6 SATA III ports is more than enough for any SFF build. I placed this motherboard in an SG05 case, and I'm only using two headers and three ports. The "EMI" shield on the back of the I/O does bow a good bit and makes installing the motherboard on the build-in standoffs a little time-consuming. You have to line up the holes with the standoffs and press it up against the I/O shield as you screw down to hold it in place. It take a little time, but it's secure. The back does look like it is bulgy, though (at least that's in the SG05 case).
At first I tried the Noctua LH-L9i with my i5-4670k and the Noctua TIM. I got idle temperatures around 35degC, but running Prime95 for 40min ended up with temperatures around 85degC. I had seen some builds with the same motherboard and Noctua low-profile cooler, but mine ended up being way too hot for my taste. The exhaust air ends up hitting the VRM module and graphics card and can't ventilate properly. I ended up returning the cooler to Amazon and using my old Corsair H50 which still hasn't quit after 2 years. With the Corsair H50, I get idle temps around 25degC and load temps around 60degC. Much happier! The hoses of the H50 don't flex well, so I'd advise getting a liquid cooler with flexible hoses.
I tested out the Wifi and USB 3.0, and they work as advertised. I probably won't use the Wifi or bluetooth, but there you go. The antenna is super nice, and it can attach to the back of the SG05. I put two DIMMs of 8GB Kingston Black 1600MHz RAM for a total of 16GB. The motherboard handles it just fine with the XMP profile going up to 1600MHz. I've never had a UEFI BIOS before, but I have to say I won't go back to the old keyboard-click-around ones. My motherboard shipped with the BIOS that was two releases behind, but updating the BIOS through the USB on the back was super easy. All it took was downloading the .CAD file from Asus' website and following the simple directions in the manual.
I knocked one star off this review. The reason why is because I believe I was mislead by Asus about this board. I had watched videos of their Z87 motherboards (the gold and black ones) doing their automatic overclocking with the "4-way optimization." I learned how to do it by the videos, but whenever I got the board and loaded the AI Suite 3, there was not the option to do the 4-way optimization. They have the EPU, Fan Xpert 2, and VRM stuff, but no 4-way optimization. I even saw the review where the Asus guy said you can flip the TPU switch on it for some automatic over-clocking, but I can't find it. I wasn't happy to find that I couldn't do the 4-way optimization, so maybe this board doesn't have all the capabilities of their other Z87 motherboards. Had I known this, I may have considered Gigabyte's Z87 more...
I'll still keep this motherboard and maybe figure out overclocking by myself. The 4670K works great without it, anyway. Yes, I know I could have paid more for the Asus ROG Impact, but I don't need the extra sound card and extra stuff. I actually really like the look of the black and yellow, and all my parts go with it.
I set the system to automatic overclocking because we just play Sims, DOTA2, and Mass Effect Andromeda. Please also note that your case needs adequate ventilation because the power riser card where VRMs are gets toasty.
