4 out of 5 eggsWorks Great!

Pros: -Very easy to overclock
-Good interface
-Plenty of ports

Cons: -There are options with the board that are not well explained in the manual. Had trouble at first learning how to use the OC controller

Other Thoughts: Have not tried many of the options available with this board so far, but it runs great and fit nicely in the Thermaltake Chaser MK-1 case. Would have been nice to have more information on the options for the board in the manual

5 out of 5 eggsStep Above IV

Pros: The firmware on this thing is really nice. Definitely an improvement. Also wireless AC on the motherboard is a huge plus. Lastly, can handle high-speed memory. Dropped in 32GB or 2666 MHz memory, and it didn't even bat an eye. Shocking, considering how freakin' picky the Maximus IV Extreme-Z was with memory. Overall, I like it a lot.

Cons: Really meant for quad-SLI, which I don't recommend as a lot of games don't have SLI profiles (LIKE TITANFALL) and the performance boost just really isn't worth the money. Now that I'm looking at it, I probably could have gone with a vastly cheaper board.

Other Thoughts: Think about if you really need the Extreme board or not. Having the slots is nice, but when was the last time you've used 6 slots for anything beyond graphics cards? When have you hooked up 10 internal hard drives to a computer? Unless you're a content creator, you probably should get a cheaper ROG board.

5 out of 5 eggsAsus Maximus VI Extreme

Pros: It is amazingly upgradable. The Bluetooth/WiFi is an awesome bit. You can use it as a hotspot that you can share data between devices over. I find myself actually using it from time to time. Not only that but the m.2 capability is pretty cool but I have a samsung EVO ssd that is plenty fast. Tons of Raid options, video card options and ram options. Top of the line parts for when it was made. No issues overclocking to the extreme. The OC panel is rad and have it in my build constantly. The temps don't read as accurately as I would like but I like seeing my clock and multiplier. I freaking love the ability to have the case open and have everything I need to restart quickly after an overclock failure.

Cons: I wish you could run 2 cards x16,x16 but by the time that really matters the boards will be able to do it probably. The WS board can do it so I would have liked to see it here but again not a big deal since only a few boards can even handle 4 way sli so its cool. The nice sound chip would have been nice but I am not a super audiophile so I have had zero issues with my surround sound even though I am only using a sub and 4 speakers 2 to each stereo channel so it's not real surround. Still.. on this kind of board do it standard even if you plan on them getting a good sound card. It is close enough to good that some may not want to spend hundreds on that solution, aka me. I want to see a 90 degree atx power but at the least a 90 degree usb 3 header. The atx doesnt bother me with my bad-a cables but the usb 3 is never good looking. That would be a nice addition for broadwell (which I plan on getting so please listen up ASUS haha ). The OC panel is awesome but it reads my fan speeds wrong and the temperatures are not that great. That would be a nice fix. Plus I want to be able to get my temperature probe readings on my Mobo on the OC panel without running the wire all the way up or being in extreme mode. I have a water temp sensor I wish I could display next to CPU temp. But anyway... fan temp constantly revs from full to 0 which I watch is completely wrong from what bios says... thats confusing and annoying.

Other Thoughts: Sure it doesn't have everything but it is close to it and I think the next version will be freaking RAD. I have gotten my ram up to 2.0 Volts AND my CPU up to 1.54 Volts at the same time with my CPU @ 4.61 GHz and my ram at 2.6Ghz CL10-11-27-11-1 and a memtweakit score of over 117,000. Freaking insane overclock ability. That is all in a custom loop of a triple rad and a double rad cooling a bare die 4770k and 2 evga 770 superclocked 4GB cards. I am in love with this board. As someone whose first step into big overclocking is with this board and I managed not to break it or burn it with dangerous overclocks... the people with dead boards really messed up or got the runts of the litter which is just a manufacturing inevitability. Its frustrating but still... come on. Can't inspect every dang one. I am currently running a constant overclock of 4.3 GHz @ 1.26 V 24/7 and 24GB of ram 2.4GHz CL10. This board is expensive but freaking epic. Don't hesitate.

4 out of 5 eggsWOW

Pros: LOTS of ports available. The options are ENDLESS. Lots of expansion. Love the ROG port (bay that allows viewing)

Cons: Poor documentation. There is ZERO in the book for how to address certain things. Fan connections and headers are ion POOR locations. Documentation that clarifys would help WONDERS

3 out of 5 eggsAsus Maximus VI Extreme

Pros: This is one of the best Z87 motherboards. Very powerful and will effortlessly overclock your 4770K.

Cons: Questionable dependability. It was the single best piece of electronics I have used for the "THREE WEEKS" it functioned.

Other Thoughts: I am absolutely convinced that Newegg is running a sham concerning this motherboard. From the customer reviews it has a lot of RMA's. Newegg has responded by deeming all boards RMA'd by customers as negligence due to "bent pins". Then they will tell you ... you're own your own". Spare yourself the headache and purchase the one year extended warranty, with "ACCIDENTAL DAMAGE" ($39.00). This is the only way to protect yourself if you are one of the unlucky 1/3 who will ultimately get a bad board.

Manufacturer Response:

Greetings,

I was unsure based off of your review, but did you try to set up a RMA already? When you have time, please let me know through email, and we can discuss this case further. 3647084.

1 out of 5 eggsMaximus VI

Pros: Not many. When it has worked it was great. Failed after a short period. Hours not days.

Cons: I stupidly have had 3 all three are almost impossible to get to work. Each time I have spoken to tech support they tell me its the board. They sent a new one and the same problem. Push the power button it starts for about 2 seconds and shuts down..They have all done the same thing. Very bad. do not buy!! I have paid for 2 and they have given me one. They all do exactly the same. VERY frustrating!! I expected much better for the cost.

Other Thoughts: Very poor tech support. no help at all. I see why its replacement only no money back.
This has cost me a lot.

Manufacturer Response:

Greetings,

If you had multiple motherboards with the same problem, chances are that something else is causing the problem. When you have the time, please send your complete computer part list, along with any troubleshooting steps tried so far, and I will do my best to help. I can be reached by email. 3638155.

3 out of 5 eggsKeep looking

Pros: Supports 4 way SLI

Cons: Price
Price
Price
It's an E-ATX bored crammed into an ATX form factor
Lot's of "bells and whistles" that I feel are completely made up.
For a premium motherboard to have a sub premium audio card is a downer.
Why would you take such a good combination of contrast among colors and ruin it with off white releases for the PCI-E slots and RAM sticks. It's an aesthetic sore.

Other Thoughts: I honestly feel like this board is a downgrade from the Formula. The only thing this board has on the formula is greater SLI/Crossfire support.
It has no premium sound car. They actually expect you to buy a $400 board and spend another $100-$200 on a dedicated audio card. He says in an offhanded way "If you're gonna waste $400 on this board, you've probably wasted $200 on a better audio card" So I pay $100 premium on this board over a formula and the only extra feature I get is greater GPU support. The OC tool/panel that you're actually paying for is INSANE. You have to be on the next level of overclocking to be able to utilize any of the "extra tools and features" this bore offers.... which is extremely hard to find anything. Which raises the question, "where my $100 go?" and the answer is down the drain. You get a VERY comparable board with the formula, a cool looking cover for the MOBO, the ability to tie in a custom water loop, a significantly better integrated audio card. A motherboard that gives itself room to breathe rather than jamming your ram down your GPU's throat. LITERALLY a waste of your money for this board. Either A. you're a professional overclocker or B. want E-Pen points. Save yourself the time and the utter feeling you got ripped off and just go with the formula.

All of that aside, The board performed just as you would a motherboard. 3/5 eggs because it works but is far from impressing me. Would have bought the formula but they were out of stock and needed a nice board ASAP.

5 out of 5 eggsAnother great product

Pros: I love the massive amount of sata ports!!! I also like the option of fan options on the board. I don't use them all but the options are great for fans in any area. This is my first personal build and my wife is very jealous of my gaming rig!

Cons: none after a month of usage.

Other Thoughts: Running on Windows 7

5 out of 5 eggsEffectively cuts the competition

Pros: This motherboard is fantastic. So many options and uses for building the rig you want to build. Bios are very nicely developed. Operation is great, and layout.

Cons: Only downside is the processor socket. Still a bit pricey for a socket that will soon leave the market. But, if you've already got a 1150s socket, this is the best out there.

Other Thoughts: Just a tad pricey from the processor compatibility/age. Extremely useful, and perfect for a high quality gaming rig.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Excellent motherboard, feature rich, nice accessory package. I would recommend.

Cons: My only complaint is the ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) gear & community can be highly addictive. Buy one item, and you will become consumed with getting more and pushing all components to their max capability. ROG is like having a Ferrari with a full tank of gas on a long, abandoned highway...Things are gonna happen !!!
