ROG CROSSHAIR VIII HERO (Wi-Fi) Review

So far so good with the formula and 3900X. The 0702 BIOS version is stable and boost clocks seem to be working correctly (based on HWINFO64). I've had luck running B-Die at tight timings with lower voltage (3400CL14 1.375V) or higher frequencies (up to 3600/CL16 so far). Far more stable of a first day than the C6H was.

The chipset fan is inaudible, though I do wish they had found a way to tie it into the VRM water loop. The integrated M.2 heatsink is a nice touch.

There is no utility for the Livedash yet but the default functionality is useful - POST codes at boot and CPU temp after boot. There is also no mention of it in the manual.

It took some trial and error to identify which USB ports were functional at POST.

I wish there were a few more extras in the box for such a premium price point. The antenna is not magnetic like older Asus boards. The included documentation, stickers, etc were all warped like they were in a high moisture environment and the protective plastic seemed dirty.

I played with the automatic overclocking in the Asus utility and it didn't really seem to work. It picked 4.15GHz for all cores as well as 1 core. I don't think the single core modes are functional yet (the manual interface didn't give any control either).

I'm looking forward to it. It'll be nice when the thread picks up and owners have a place to share overclocks, thoughts, and ideas.

I appreciate your input. It'll be nice to see what you can get out of it. Are you watercooling? How are the VRM temps under full load?

Please a picture when the system is running :)

Currently I'm on a benchtop setup with the stock cooler and an old video card (GTX780) just to try out the platform. I wanted to make sure it was stable before I rip apart my main rig and tie in the water loop. Given these cooling limitations I can't really provide useful comments on VRM temps.

I have some fresh tubing, fittings, and a new AM4 waterblock ready to go once I'm ready to install into my main rig which I probably won't get to for a couple more days.

I was able to secure a Non-Wifi Hero from Amazon before they went out of stock. Ready for Round 3!

Are you able to adjust the chipset fan speed in the bios or any of the utilities? What RPM is it running at?

It would be nice to see some pictures after it's all set up. Sounds like a total beast.

Welcome! It'll be good to hear your input once you get it all set up and running.
