ASUS MAXIMUS VI HERO LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great board with nice options

Cons: The only con to this board is that it does not keep time... there are numerous complaints in the ASUS ROG forums with ASUS providing no permanent fix to this problem. Recommendations for a fix from ASUS seem to last weeks at most then the clock freezes again. Other than this very annoying issue this is a good board. (deducted 1 egg for not keeping time and 1 egg for continually having to deal with the annoyance of resetting it). I would rate this a 5 egg board if they fix this issue.

Other Thoughts: Windows Pro 8.1 x 64bit

ASUS MAXIMUS VI HERO LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great board for most users... nice specs and options available

Cons: HD Audio i found to be lacking... very flat tones even after adjusting EQ and sound modes. I ended up purchasing a dedicated sound card instead.
Replaced my old ASUS Rampage Extreme II which had the ROG X-Fi Supreme FX small PCIE card... that one was MUCH better than the onboard audio on the Hero
