Asus Maximus XI Code Help

Hey,


I am currently in the process of getting info to complete my build. Currently looking to pair the Maximus XI Code with a i9 9900K that will not be overclocked. I am kinda on the fence with the Maximus XI Code and want some help.

Does Asus make reliable well built motherboards?

With this controversy of only being 4 phases doubled to 8 or whatever will it be fine with a 9900K?


I also heard the Maximus XI line up had dim RGB lighting especially on the IO cover is this true?


Overall how is Asus Maximus XI lineup

Well, yes Asus does generally make good motherboards. I've certainly had no problems with mine. I've overclocked up to 5 GHz and VRMs never became an issue (cooling the chip, that's another story). I don't think I've seen my VRMs go much beyond 60C even during severe stress testing. I'm not sure what the LEDs look like, they're almost entirely covered by GPU and CPU cooler in my build. I think they are pretty dim.

Out the Maximus XI line the only good boards are the Gene and Apex or if you want to throw money away the extreme.

As for the RGB I hate that crap and turn it all off first chance I get.

Get the Gene or the Apex otherwise get a Gigabyte board instead.

RGB on the XI Code/Formula/Hero is complete garbage. You can barely see the LED's at all.
