ASUS MAXIMUS VI FORMULA LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX gaming board with double-sided ROG Armor, 23C-degrees cooler CrossChill and 120dB SNR, 600ohm audio
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Incredible motherboard with 0 issues as far as detecting ram, OC'd speeds, and the processor OC'ing.

Cons: The on-board sound with this MOBO is garbage, I hate to say it but since I got this motherboard I have had issues with it. It doesn't die or go out or anything, but the sound will go completely over the top and get extremely loud, as well as distorting and start crackling.. Sounds like a few fireworks going off at the same time..

Other Thoughts: Still an incredible motherboard with a flawless visual appeal, the only con is the sound card, not worth knocking eggs off because you can get USB sound, or an aftermarket sound card.. Or just deal with it, the sound quality is crystal clear on my Razer Tiamat 7.1 and it only happens once or twice, but that is after about 4 hours of gaming.. All in all, the good outweighs the bad.

Pros: This motherboard looks incredible, and the motherboard temps normally hover around 23c which is great for air cooling. When paired with the rest of my specs it makes for a pretty aesthetically appealing look, and a very monstrous rig.

Cons: The only con I can think of is maybe for some the fan connectors are a little difficult to reach, depends how fat your fingers are, ha!
