QUICK QUESTION!! ASUS MOBOs, Maximus 8 Ranger vs Mamimus 8 Hero

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So i was gonna get hero but the ranger is bundled with the ram I want and the mobo is similar. So with an air cooler, D-15, what differences are there between the two boards? I mainly game but want to stream sometimes and overclock. Should I just grab the combo?

I've read a bunch of threads on Tom's but want to check here to make sure since you guys have helped me a lot in the past, thx.


Edit: One thing I notice is audio is dif, supposedly Hero is better, and there are more special features on it and a higher ram OC but I don't care that much about turbo charging ram atm, and audio isn't extremely important.

I am about to just get the ranger......

I've got the Ranger and it's a great board. The Hero is probably a little better at overclocking, but I'd just get the Ranger and save the money especially considering your edit in the OP.

For air/water they should OC the same, heck even a 170-A will do. The hero has better power phases and some other features that I like more.
