Would fit in case

Pros: None

Cons: Couldn't install the board. The integrated IO shield is too big to fit in the hole for the IO ports. I seems like they missed a manufacturing step to bend the IO shield's edges back. RMAing. Hopefully the next one will work.

An OK board but USB-C issues right out of the gate

Pros: Looks good.
Did not have any issues with the m.2 heatsinks. Used and installed both.

Cons: Poor placement of the SATA ports. It's right under where most people put their primary video cards. So have to take out the vid card to move that around.
Biggest con for me is that when I use the USB 3 C connector on the motherboard, with ANY connector I have tried, I get an error that it's pulling too much voltage. Doesn't matter the connector, it still does it. This seems like a HUGE issue to me, as this was one of the reasons I got this board.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't recommend this board to anyone. I would get a different one. I should have.

Dear Brett W,

Thank you for your review and I certainly understand the inconvenience this may have caused, and please accept our apologies. All ASUS products are manufactured with materials that comply with industry's quality standard and each one undergoes intensive quality control testing and inspections, this is a random problem. Have you tried swapping your USB cable to debug for defective unit? If possible, give me a detailed description to any specifics in regards to your situation so we can collaborate towards a resolution. ​You can reach me at cl-adrian@asus.com.

Thank you for choosing ASUS!

Best Regards,

Disappointing Purchase

Pros: I haven't been able to determine any pros for the Maximus Hero Z390 because I've had to RMA two motherboards because I could not remove the M.2 heat sink plates.

Cons: I've had to RMA two motherboards because I could not remove all the M.2 heat sink plate screws. The screws were over tightened and, as a result, I was not able to install my two M.2 SSDs.

Other Thoughts: Asus, as a first time customer with you, I'm disappointed with my buying experience. I am disappointed in the quality control for the Maximus XI Hero motherboard. A premium is being charged for this motherboard but the quality of the motherboard is not proportional to the price you pay. My disappointment extends beyond the motherboard because the computer I'm building revolves solely around Asus' ecosystem. If I can't obtain a defect free Asus motherboard then I've wasted a lot of money in components. To potential customers, I cannot recommend the ROG Maximus XI Hero Z390 until the issue with over tightening the M.2 heat plate screws is corrected. Asus, in the spirit of continuous improvement, one way to correct the issue would be to reduce the torque specs of the M.2 screws in the manufacturing process. This is a quick and easy solution to implement and the solution would eliminate the root cause of many complaints.

RMA process is terrible

Pros: When it works it's fine, but watch out for the bloatware they try to get you to install

Cons: -High Priced with terrible RMA support

Other Thoughts: Took several calls to support to get them to send an email on how to return it. They wasted a ton of my time. Then as soon as they finally get me the email they call me the next day to see if I sent it yet! Well problem is I was already away on business by the time they sent the email to me. I wanted to do an advance RMA but that's not an option! If I'm paying for a top end motherboard they should be able to do advance RMA. 100% dissatisfied with their support process.

Dear Ingyu H,

We appreciate your feedback on this matter and please accept our apologies for any inconvenience. The Maximus boards were designed specifically with 9th gen CPUs in mind. Phase doublers were removed because we found that they can have a negative impact on the CPU’s transient voltage performance. At the same time we’ve upgraded the power stages and added a heatpipe to the heatsink to improve thermal performance. What issues are you having with your motherboard? I would like to gather more information to better assist you. ​You can reach me at cl-adrian@asus.com.

Thank you for choosing ASUS!
