1 out of 5 eggsASUS RMA Process

This review is from: ASUS MAXIMUS VII HERO LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Great product. Works very well when it works

Cons: I would not recommend ASUS products on the sheer RMA process alone! 2 weeks for an advanced replacement is unacceptable. The other option is mail your hardware in and wait 3 weeks for the return. Either option the problem is usually not fixed. I am on my 3rd Maximum VII board and the problem is still not fixed. All memory slots on 1st board were dead after 1 yr. 2 memory slots were dead 2nd board. Still waiting on 3rd board but cant create the RMA until the other one is sent back and fully inspected. 2 more weeks. The whole process now has taken over 4 weeks and im still dead. I finally ordered another MB from another manufacturer and cut my losses with ASUS products.

5 out of 5 eggsawesome

This review is from: ASUS MAXIMUS VII HERO LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: everything

Cons: nothing except see other thoughts

Other Thoughts: make sure when hooking up power supply you not only hook up the 20+4 pin power but also the 8 pin ( 2 x 4 pin) power on the other end of the motherboard or it wont boot. i personally have never seen this on any motherboard that i have replaced before but then again they were all stock pc's.

4 out of 5 eggsSo many options

This review is from: ASUS MAXIMUS VII HERO LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: This motherboard has a wide variety of options. There are so many that some of the settings I've never heard of. The fan speed and temperature management is very easy to work with and monitor. The board is backlit in red which looks great in a open concept case with a glass door. Plenty of I/O ports to work with and easy to install

Cons: It takes a high level of knowledge/experience to get the full usage out of this motherboard.

4 out of 5 eggspossibly used board

This review is from: ASUS MAXIMUS VII HERO LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: I have no time unfortunately to RMA and request a replacement. My brother has the same board and as his it works and looks great. I got this board because there is no z97 Extreme version and I really looked forward to the TrueVolt feature and M.2 port. along with Dual SLI (but other Asus boards have this). I really like Asus products and I try to get them every time, but the scratches and chip offs were a big disappointment. I've taken pictures and do plan to email them to both Newegg and Asus.

Cons: The board booted up fine. I had to take off an egg cause the heat sinks on it have bits chipped off. The "Republic of Gamers" logo that that seems to be made of glass or plastic, the one that light up, had scratching on it. As I suspected it is not noticeable once installed and lit, but when assembling the rig it was evident someone was very careless with it.

Aside from that I did feel the board to be somewhat flimsy compared to others I've handled, but nothing worthy of an egg or half. When I first booted with my SSD it took a long time to boot. Maybe about 3 to 4 minutes. It did this consistently until I disabled fast boot and this made no sense to me but I just left it this way and upgraded to latest BIOS.

5 out of 5 eggsmy hero

This review is from: ASUS MAXIMUS VII HERO LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Have had this running for months now. Sometimes for days straight without a hitch. Idk why so many ppl are having troubles honestly. I love the look of the board.

Cons: Only con is that the start and reset buttons on the board itself are VERY bright. Keep in mind if your pc is in your bedroom.

4 out of 5 eggsWarning about this motherboard.

This review is from: ASUS MAXIMUS VII HERO LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: No problems yet except...

Cons: The 24 pin main power connector, at least on my model is made funny. It was super difficult to insert the 24 pin cable from the psu into the motherboard. I could only get it 3/4ths of the way in until I had to stop for fear of breaking the board.

A few months passed and I started having random shutdowns into automatic reboots. When the computer rebooted the bios said that ''Asus Anti-surge was activated due to a power surge''. I checked some forums and people generally said this was just an asus software quirk.

Then one day the ''power surges'' and subsequent shutdowns/reboots became so frequent that the pc would shutdown as soon as I pressed the power button. So then I assumed that it had to be the loose 24 pin connector.

So throwing caution to the wind, (while the motherboard was still in the case) I put one finger underneath the motherboard and pressed as hard as I possibly could onto the connector from above, and lo and behold! It snapped right in.

Immediately after that I had no more random shutdown issues from asus anti-surge due to ''power surges''. Great product, just they could've done a better job with this one connector,... the *main* connector on the board..

1 out of 5 eggsLaziest Board I've ever used.

This review is from: ASUS MAXIMUS VII HERO LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Supports SLI and i5-i7 processors

Cons: Came with no IO backplate, several pins were bent, meaning I had to fix them manually, can't use the LAN internet port, they forgot to add drivers (or at least one's that work) with this board in general, not even downloading one from online worked.

Not sure who to blame here, but my harddrive randomly failed when launching, like, seriously, just stopped, it was missing specific files, and I left it in the safest possible place where it never moved. Worked fine before hand.

Other Thoughts: This, honestly, is probably the cheapest board I've ever seen. Do not buy it, ASUS is not longer a quality company, they cut corners amazingly hard, and then blame you for problems such as bent pins, of which, they bent before being sent. I will never buy something from ASUS ever again. This is unacceptable. You're only gonna be paying for the name at this rate.

3 out of 5 eggsHERO Device shortfall

This review is from: ASUS MAXIMUS VII HERO LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Overall the board is nice. A lot of nice features that warrant the price tag. The BIOS has a lot of things that you can do to customize it for your particular uses.

Cons: Unfortunatly, the SSD category for this board is a little short of Excellent. After several back and forth emails to the techs at ASUS they kept feeding me the corporate line. One tech however came out and said that the SAMSUNG EVO 850 M.2 is not compatible with this board and recommend reading the ROG Device Documents on their support page. No bios updates for Devices since 2013.

Other Thoughts: If I had to do it over again, I might have started with the add ons and then found a motherboard that supports everything I want. Kind of disappointed with the outcome, but learned a bunch from trying to figure out why something doesn't work as advertised.
