4 out of 5 eggs Great board. Could be better 01/14/2014

This review is from: ASUS MAXIMUS VI HERO LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros:

- Great features.
- Great value.
- Decent support from Asus.
- Easy to setup and use.
- Cool color scheme and LEDs
- UEFI is amazing.
- Quick to Post and get in windows

Cons:

Bios freezes and hangs from time to time *Probably not a hardware issue.*

Doesn't have a clear CMOs button and opps for the cr@ppy jumper method instead.

Doesn't have switches to kill PCI-e ports or RAM Dimm slots.

Bios update changelogs are too vague.

What the heck does "Improved Overall System Stability." really mean?!?

Onboard Audio drivers need a TON of work... *Pops and hisses galore! And a bug that sets the volume at 100% every boot... This was all noted using Optical Audio. and a Z5500 5.1 system.*

No onboard WiFi.

Other Thoughts:

Overall I really like and enjoy the value and feature of the Hero Sku. wouldn't mind spending another $20-30 for a bit more though...

They need to add some things for their next go at it but I'm satisfied overall.
