Awards of the EVGA Z87 Classified (152-HW-E878-KR)

Not only does it have the higher end features, it looks the part too. Again, you all know me by now and I love understated styling in my old age. Black is the new black on this board. Only a couple of red highlights ‘de-cloak’ this board from the stealthy all black look, so it should go well aesthetically with a lot of themes.
The overclocking process is made simple by the new UEFI interface that is not only easy to navigate but has the common controls positioned near the top of each list.
