I've been eyeing z97-mobos all night and I think you made best possible choise and I might do very same. Impact would be just a little better, maybe, but way more expensive. Z97I-Plus is very solid and has m.2-slot too.

my only (very) minor complaint with the ASUS is that it's a Megatrends BIOS board, rather than an AWARD BIOS, but I can live with that :-)

The m.2 slot is on the back of the board and is compatible with 60mm and 80mm length drives. The RVZ02 is actually going to be much better for those mobos with the m.2 slot on the back since you don't need to uninstall everything in the box to get at the back of the board like you do in the RVZ01/FTZ01.

M.2-slot is actually a choke for new Samsung 950 pro, with only 1GBps as it is pcie 2x. But in Impact ot drains bandwitch from gpu of is M.2 used so I figured Z97I is better overall. And 100€ cheaper as it is in other features almost identical.

If you live in Europe, you might consider buying the Impact here :

At roughly the same price, it's a no brainer.

Awesome, thanks! I have to check what it costs to ship Finland when I am at home.

E: ~19€ with UPS. Impact is practically mine.

but with NVMe it's still going to be way faster than SATA, no?

Of course, but fast SSDs with raid0 compete there.

@SHwoKing Prepare for IMPACT! wink.gif

I thought the lack of intake fans was an abberration but when you think about it, some of the best cooling solution for the cpu are pratically the same : Cryorig C1 and Raijintek Pallas us their own mounted fan as intake.

But I'm more concerned with the GPU. And I think Silverstone should publish a maximum height tolerance for the GPU as it seems that some GPU higher than two slots will have some trouble fitting.

Overall it seems a well thought product with easier installation as you can open the case on both side and acces the back of the mobo easily. Plus I like the clear windows smile.gif
