ASUS MAXIMUS VI HERO ATX Intel Motherboard Reviews

It was the right board for me, and I am not even a gamer :-)

Pros: Ports galore, good components, easy overclock for Me being a lazy overclocker , Improved onboard sound

Cons: Ai suite in .Net , I really wish drivers fit on a floppy still :-) Really Toolbars on a drivers disk ;-( I still want to PS2s (mr. old school)

I have had many Asus motherboards, I understand them, they understand me, we get along well together. I had it fired up and overclocked on a temporary bench a few hours after i got all the components. I dont feel abandoned after the sale, the ROG forum has some active participation from the company, i like that. I Am running RAID0 on the intel ICH , I understand it, it understands me, we get along well together :-) I only ever intended to run 1 video card of really good speed with only 1 GPU in it, so i would not have any complexities, so this fits well into doing that. I will be adding in one more raid card, so there is the right amount of stuff for doing that also. Lots of Sata...

Pros: Vast array of features, great overclocking capabilities, easy bios, high quality components, looks great, cheap price

Cons: only two way sli, no included wifi

Pros - Where to begin... okay, first off the price of this board compared to some other z87 boards is just down right great and competitive for the features you get. All high quality components, as all the maximus boards from asus are manufactured with. Great overclock capabilities, i have my 4770k at 4.8 ghz with 1.25 volts, have pushed 5.2ghz with 1.31 volts, but the 4770k runs pretty hot so i bumped it back down until i delid. The bios are very easy to use, no more confusion and forum posts of "how do i overclock with X board" this board pretty much spoon feeds you every detail you need on how to achieve great overclocks. Great onboard audio, but of course a dedicated sound card...
