ASUS ROG MAXIMUS VIII HERO LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Gaming Motherboard

2 out of 5 eggs Purchase on 9/9/2015, installed on 04/15/2016 11/02/2016

This review is from: ASUS ROG MAXIMUS VIII HERO LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Gaming Motherboard

Pros: -Worked great for a limited time while it was installed into my system.
-UEFI was super easy to use at all levels
-It looked pretty in my case

Cons: -Board had trouble fitting exactly in my NZXT Phantom full tower Case
-Sata Ports had a tendency to become 'lost' and would require booting from UEFI after jiggling the ports
-This board did not like a certain set of sticks of HYPER X ram (Model HX430C15SBK2/16)
-Finally this board died on 11/1/2016 (a total of 6 months and 17 days) and would not even boot up to UEFI.

Other Thoughts: Going to start the RMA process today for this board, I will be replacing it with another manufacturer. I would not recommend this board after running it for 6 months.

Intel Core i5-6600K 6M Skylake Quad-Core 3.5 GHz LGA 1151 91W BX80662I56600K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 530

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Overclocks to 4.4 with limted effort.
Price is very afforable for what you get.
Was almost a 100% improvement from the last processor I had in the box.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: As a long time AMD consumer, I felt a little guilty purchasing this product. Until I was able to run Arma 3 at full settings and 60fps.
This socket is a bit tricky to get the retention bracket for my water cooling unit installed. May be worthwhile to take your time while installing this guy.

5 out of 5 eggs Make sure to Configure Ram to rated Speed 02/18/2016

This review is from: HyperX Savage 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3000 (PC4 24000) Desktop Memory Model HX430C15SBK2/16

Pros: Very fast, easy to setup up.

Cons: The price was a bit high, but to have some sweet DDR4 ram early on, it may or may not be worth it to some.

Other Thoughts: Out of the box my motherboard defaulted the speed to 2133, a small tweak to the bios (UEFI) and its running at 3000 speed. Running it at 2133 also seemed to create errors in certain games (arma 3) in regard to memory. After running the ram at the rated speed, the problem disappeared.
