ASUS and I also want the event to be interactive, so we want your questions.  We'll of course being paying attention to the chat room on our live page but you'll have better luck if you submit your questions about the ASUS Z87 products and Haswell processors before hand, in the comments section below.  You don't have to register to ask and we'll have the ability to read them beforehand!

Greetings JJ!

Just wanted to ask a quick question about the wifi capabilities on the Z87 series (primarily the pro). I was wondering if the wireless dongle/antenna can be used also as some sort of access point or router for other wifi capable devices to access.

1) How likely is it that this Z87 chipset will support Broadwell CPUs in the future?

2) Will 1155/1156 CPU coolers work with the 1150 boards?

Hey JJ so what is the biggest benefit to change over from Ivy? And when is Vivian gonna start allowing Denis and Patti to work more with us modders? :)

CORRECTED .. i don't think u will answer this question ,but y didn't u include a PCIe 2.0 x4 in the VI formula ,thanks jj and rayan

Do the HDMI connectors on the Haswell boards support HDMI 1.4b like the new Asus Nvidia 700 series GPU?

June 4, 2013 | 01:47 PM - Posted by jaju123 (not verified)

Do the new Asus z87 boards have PCI legacy slots? Some highest-end sound cards still use PCI, like the Xonar ST (which I have). That would be necessary for me to upgrade!

Also, the boards which have 8 SATA slots - do they use 3rd Party Controllers with PCIe x1 interface (only 5Gb/s) or better, newer alternatives?

Thanks for this and I hope they're answered!

JJ you are by far one of the only people in the industry that i met that is fully dedicated to knowing ur products. Awesome job as always.

I have one question of ASUS guys. First, they need to know i love them. Great boards, fantastic vision, engineered to exceed expectations. Keep up the good work.

But as i want to live performance and not wait for it...Could we have in the near future some kind of (rookies:) ) button with OC Safe - with setting a bit more high than stock speed just for some increase of performance without any risks?

That's a very good question Jasper. Will be better than amd?

Has all the issues with the Intel USB 3.0 chipset been fixed with this line-up from when the computer wakes up from S3 sleep mode and not responding?

The TUF line of motherboards have been a godsend to those of us who's computers are put through hellish conditions. Has considered making TUF branded Graphics cards?
