ASUS GRYPHON Z87 Motherboard Review

With the launch of Haswell, many motherboard makers have introduced brand-new product lines that were each built after speaking to end users about what they want. One of the biggest things I heard people asking for was a larger selection of smaller "high-end" motherboards, both in mATX and mITX form factors. That said, packing in a lot of features can be a truly complex task with a smaller motherboard as there is less available space to fit stuff into, but over the years, ASUS has proven time and again that moving into smaller form factors with their ROG product line hasn't hampered them one bit, and there are in fact quite a few enthusiasts out there that swear by the memory-overclocking ability of ASUS's ROG Maximus V Gene. However, not everyone likes black and red. ASUS, knowing this, already had several "TUF" series motherboards that were a complete diversion from what the ROG product line offered. This time around, ASUS has, like with its ROG line, updated their "TUF" line-up to include a mATX product, and I've put it to the test. Does the motherboard matter when overclocking Haswell? Does moving to a smaller motherboard affect clocking ability? How about stuffing two high-end VGAs into a smaller board? The ASUS Gryphon is ready to fight THAT battle... techPowerUp
