Reviews say it is. I don't have one so I can't say whether or not it is. If I were in the market for a motherboard, I would consider it for a build. Also, you never said what you had for a CPU cooler. Don't use the stock Intel cooler, they are just garbage.

Especially if you're considering any overclocking, Haswells do run hot. Possibly a closed loop liquid cooler is in order, I'm considering one. http://www.newegg.com/Water-Liquid-C...ategory/ID-575

If you're watercooling I'd go for the Corsair h100i. I know a few people who have those and have heard nothing but good things about them, it's what I'll go for when I eventually overclock. As for your motherboard just go for the Sabertooth Z87, fantastic board.
