Z87 ASUS Maximus VI Hero OR ASUS Sabertooth - Page 2

post #11 of 16
The Sabertooth's cost is a lot higher than the Hero, definately not worth the aesthetics for me.

I'm going for the Hero for my new 4770k. seems like a nice board smile.gif

Hope it wil fix the bottleneck on my 1440p monitor i had with my 2500k and 2x 7870XT. In BF my CPU load just went trough the roof.

Came here to say, big warranty with the Sabertooth, very focused on longevity of components,
the hero is aimed at overclockers who want more oc features, and has more software included if you want to do oc from the desktop.

also from what I understand, the main issue with the heat in Haswell, is that the transistor density has hit a level where the die struggles to feed the heat to the heatsink, so even delidding will have less of an effect than it did on the outgoing Ivy bridge.

I do hope they bring back cartridge CPU's so we can cool the little buggers from front and back ! smile.gif

Ya, cartridges!

Also, don't make your decision based on ASUS' warranty. Depending on the representative you are assigned during RMA, you may be screwed. http://www.overclock.net/t/1397643/asus-p8z77-v-failure-and-asus-response

With that being said, I would go with the maximus, but that is simply personal preference. I'm not much help, sorry.

Hi sbdblyss

Yes I read a lot about the asus issues, however they seem to be centered around a specific support individual in the US, UK support is a different department, and I have had good responses from them in the past.

5 years a pretty long time for a motherboard. 3 years seems reasonable.
