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

Pros: Looks great. Good manual. Newegg offered to replace the board. I had just got it running for about 2 weeks without a fault and opted to keep the board. I probably should have accepted their generous offer.

Cons: I have now owned this board for almost 60 days, and there is a recurring problem with the board failing to keep the correct time. The CMOS reset process is simple enough to complete but apparently ASUS has no answer for a permanent fix. They have failed to reply to my inquiries other than to recommend the CMOS reset.

Other Thoughts: I think I would look for another board in this price range if I was to build a new system. Features and software touted are generally available on other boards and can easily be downloaded for free as try/buy packages.

Cooler Master HAF X - High Air Flow Full Tower Computer Case with Windowed Side Panel and USB 3.0 Ports
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great construction, and attention to detail. Easy to follow instruction manual, and very nicely engineered to facilitate a quick/efficient build and dust control/cleaning. This rig is astonishingly quiet for an air-cooled system. It should accommodate available water cooing for the overclocker.

Cons: A case this great will command a great motherboard and graphics card. In turn you want great cooling. My motherboard ASUS Maximus Hero vi has connectors for 4 controllable fans managed by included software. Came equipped with 2 pin fans. I am replacing the fans with Bit Fenix 4 pin fans. Translate- $100, to get exactly what I want.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this case to anyone wanting a well built case that is well built, has both great looks and performance.

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: This is a very good looking Motherboard. The Manual and information seems very good and the computer worked well from initial power up forward. It was delivered in excellent protective packaging with several programs in addition to the normal Bios/drivers were included. Everything that I needed from software to hardware was included.

Cons: I have only two things that I have not figured out yet.

First the system clock is not working correctly. It resets to an incorrect time each time I reset the time.

I have not yet determined how to hook up the front panel audio connections.

My lack of experience most likely explains both comments listed above.

Other Thoughts: I changed my mind a couple of times as I developed my list of parts for the computer. Newegg customer relations personnel were knowledgeable , helpful, and kind as I worked through this computer build. Many thanks to the ladies that helped me. The return RMA was handled in a timely and professional manner.
