ASUS MAXIMUS VI HERO LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This motherboard simply was plug and play. Posted on the first switch on. Took my old one out and put the new one it. The BIOS although elaborate is great and I easily overclocked my 4770k to 4.2ghz in a few mouse clicks. The Board looks great and goes awesome with my red and black watercooling theme in my system. Love the heatpipe and care in manufacturing. You know this is a solid board.

Cons: the bios might be too complex for a beginner, but they try to simplify that for you.

Other Thoughts: Asus quality. the last 3 motherboards i've owned...a 780i, x58 and z68 have all been built well but their BIOS always suffered. Asus took the time to build an awesome BIOS that does all the hard work for you. No more unstable BSOD. Yay!

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

Pros: coming from an i7 975 Extreme edition processor this thing is pretty darn quick at 4.2ghz
i had my i7 975 at 4.6 ghz at 1.4 volts and it was still slower than this guy is.
it simply chews through anything i throw at it.
i love the z87 features as well as the pci-e bandwidth. very nice.

Cons: it runs hot! super hot! with two 240mm radiators and an awesome 4.6ghz this guy was hitting 80-90 c ...not cool(literally). i would have to delid this badboy if i wanted to get better temps. i'm happy at the 4.2ghz setting i have it at now which has temps under load around 45c. just that .4ghz jump really makes some heat that the chip itself can't dissipate in time to the waterblock. intel should have welded the die to the heatsink instead of this gluing stuff. >.<

Other Thoughts: i7 4770 @ 4.2ghz

Pros: Looks great! No bleed from the background. Isn't too bright or too dark. Never had to mess with the settings to get it just 'right'
i7 975 extreme @ 4.4ghz 1.4volts
evga 780 gtx sli
1300 watt evga psu

Cons: NO HDMI CABLE! had to steal the one hooked up to my led tv to run my computer ;/
1080p? Big woop. one dead pixel. if i look hard enough i think i can find it.
no big deal to me though. i see some absurdly extreme people on here returning their entire monitor just to get a screen without one dead pixel. not me though.

Other Thoughts: this thing is huge! in a good way :)
sometimes size is everything, and this allows me to stay on top of the game. i seriously have about a 2:1 kd on bf4 now because i can see enemies a whole lot better now than on my old 22" hanns g lcd monitor.
