To those bashing the hero, I agree with you that the rog line up has been way overpriced and I hate Asus for it.

However, the hero is a great board, I love mine and the only thing I would change it for would be a gigabyte z87 OC board tongue.gif

Also with boards coming out like this, at this price, and Asus still hasn't dropped the price on the rog lineup? Asus pls.

5.0 GHz with an Ivy Bridge, thus Z77/s1155 not Z87/s1150, like what this thread is about?! Good job thumb.gif
