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

Pros: Grate Bios and chipset, good board layout, high end board for such a cheap price. very solid, and good cooling on NB and capacitors. good IO plate and set up, grate on board sound, really pleased with the extra programs that come with the mobo, drivers are easy to update.

Cons: this is were i docked a egg, extremely disappointed my first dimm slot was dead. im only running a single dual channel set of memory though, BUT i remember when ASUS was a must buy in my book but for something as simple as this to pass there quality checks amazes me. i was extremely pleased with the performance and price point of this board and after reading reviews i was extremely iffy about buying it, i opted not to RMA it due purely to how bad ASUS has gotten on there customer support. overall im happy with the performance of the product, just wish the manufacturer would step up to the plate and be the asus i once loved and trusted.

Other Thoughts: i was actually really impressed with the on board sound.

Intel Core i7-4770K Haswell Quad-Core 3.5 GHz LGA 1150 84W BX80646I74770K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Easy to OC, very fast, grate at running multiple applications, handles everything i throw at it.

Cons: the one thing im a bit disappointed about is its heat dissipation, i have mine OCd to 4.4 ghz with a corsair H80i liquid cooler on it, and is you run any test that maxes out the cores you run into heat problems fast. you just cant pull the heat out of the chip fast enough with the way its built.

Other Thoughts: over all a good chip and not much of a need to go beyond 4 ghz unless you doing it purely for the fun of it.

Pros: Easy to install, EXTREMELY solid heatsinks, completely surprised by how solid they are. Easy to set timings in bios, runs at stated frequency. stays cool.

Cons: none that i can think of.
