Intel DZ87KLT-75K LGA1150 Desktop Motherboard Review

Intel Z87 UEFI

Intel’s “Visual BIOS” makes another appearance with the DZ87KLT-75K motherboard. As with many other UEFI interfaces, there are dozens of screens, far more than I have space to cover! It’s very pretty, in the sense of good layouts and lots of animations and transitions as you mouse/keyboard through the various pages and panels. However, I find the dark blue text on a somewhat darker blue background rather hard to read. The BIOS has several customization features: for example, you can choose the page you’d like it to display initially.


Click the “Devices” tab on the main page takes you to this screen, where you can examine both onboard devices like the USB and LAN ports, as well as what’s plugged into them.


Very fine-grained fan control is supported on the Cooling page. You can set both temperature and RPM thresholds as well as minimum and maximum duty cycles for each fan on the system. Any fan can be slaved to any temperature input: processor, PCH, SIO (the Nuvoton chip), memory, or the CPU voltage regulators.


The Boot Configuration panel lets you set the boot device priority, boot display, and how UEFI booting is handled.


Let’s run this board through my testing gauntlet in the next section.

    Hello David,

    I am commenting on this page in the hopes that you will sell me this beautiful piece of hardware that I have been unable to find anywhere else. I am kindof hoping that you don’t like it and arent using it, but I fell in love with it a while back but couldn’t afford it then. now that I revisit my pcpartpicker build I found out that it is not available anymore. Please, please let me know if you are willing to part with it.

    Best regards,
