Owner's Club Signature Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Please feel free to add this code to your signature and help spread the knowledge/existence of the club. Many thanks to SortOfGrim for sorting out the signature.
Code:
[CENTER] [FONT="Franklin Gothic Medium"][URL="https://www.overclock.net/t/1413905/official-asus-maximus-vi-hero-owners-and-overclocking-club"][SIZE=4][B]The Asus Maximus VI Hero Club[/B][/SIZE][/URL][/FONT][/CENTER]

Requirements for being added to the overclocking achievements list Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
In order to be added to the overclocking list, the following information must be clearly stated in your post:
  1. The CPU model used.
  2. The overclocked speed.
  3. The CPU voltage used to ensure the overclock is stable.
  4. The type (e.g. air/liquid/LN2) cooling used.
  5. The model of the CPU block/heatsink used.
  6. Screenshots of the bechmarking tests.

The following benchmarking tests must be used in order to ensure the overclock is stable:
  1. Prime 95 - small FFT test - 6 hours min.
  2. Prime 95 - large FFT test - 6 hours min.
  3. Prime 95 - blend test - 6 hours min.
  4. Intel Burn Test (IBT) - 10 cycles min.

Without verification tests and screenshots, your overclocking achievement cannot be added to the list. If you require help to run the tests, please feel free to post in this thread where one of our many members will be happy to help.

Please feel free to suggest improvements/additions to the club.

I will be updating the thread over the next couple of days, but in the meantime please feel free to add posts.

Thanks guys.

Known Hardware Niggles Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
CPU Heatsink Issues
  1. BeQuiet! Dark Rock 2
    Symptom: boot up error states that PWM fan has very low RPM.
    Reason: the Dark Rock 2 is a large tower heatsink that has a very low RMP when the CPU is idle.
    Fix: enter the Asus UEFI Bios and change the lowest recorded RPM to 300 RPM for the heatsink fan.

Known Software Niggles Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
ROG GameFirst II Issues
  1. Symptom: lower than expected download and upload speeds
    Reason: the ROG GameFirst II software is supposed to optimize download and upload speeds. Sometimes a piece of software does not perform as intended.
    Fix: uninstall the ROG GameFirst II software.

I think the the next model up (Maximus Extreme) is the most popular version of the board as it is specifically built for overclocking. The Hero VI is supposed to be a mid-range board: fairly cheap yet has most of the necessary features.

The Hero VI is great. The reviews prove that but it's just that it's not very popular because of its bigger brother (in my opinion).

Couldn't figure out why my computer was lagging slower than my laptop.... uninstalling their GameFirst software fixed it tongue.gif Went from 10Mb/s down, 1Mb/s up to 50+ Mb/s down, 10+ Mb/s up.

Edit: narrowed it down to Gamefirst and not the entire Asus suite
