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

Pros: It is amazingly upgradable. The Bluetooth/WiFi is an awesome bit. You can use it as a hotspot that you can share data between devices over. I find myself actually using it from time to time. Not only that but the m.2 capability is pretty cool but I have a samsung EVO ssd that is plenty fast. Tons of Raid options, video card options and ram options. Top of the line parts for when it was made. No issues overclocking to the extreme. The OC panel is rad and have it in my build constantly. The temps don't read as accurately as I would like but I like seeing my clock and multiplier. I freaking love the ability to have the case open and have everything I need to restart quickly after an overclock failure.

Cons: I wish you could run 2 cards x16,x16 but by the time that really matters the boards will be able to do it probably. The WS board can do it so I would have liked to see it here but again not a big deal since only a few boards can even handle 4 way sli so its cool. The nice sound chip would have been nice but I am not a super audiophile so I have had zero issues with my surround sound even though I am only using a sub and 4 speakers 2 to each stereo channel so it's not real surround. Still.. on this kind of board do it standard even if you plan on them getting a good sound card. It is close enough to good that some may not want to spend hundreds on that solution, aka me. I want to see a 90 degree atx power but at the least a 90 degree usb 3 header. The atx doesnt bother me with my bad-a cables but the usb 3 is never good looking. That would be a nice addition for broadwell (which I plan on getting so please listen up ASUS haha ). The OC panel is awesome but it reads my fan speeds wrong and the temperatures are not that great. That would be a nice fix. Plus I want to be able to get my temperature probe readings on my Mobo on the OC panel without running the wire all the way up or being in extreme mode. I have a water temp sensor I wish I could display next to CPU temp. But anyway... fan temp constantly revs from full to 0 which I watch is completely wrong from what bios says... thats confusing and annoying.

Other Thoughts: Sure it doesn't have everything but it is close to it and I think the next version will be freaking RAD. I have gotten my ram up to 2.0 Volts AND my CPU up to 1.54 Volts at the same time with my CPU @ 4.61 GHz and my ram at 2.6Ghz CL10-11-27-11-1 and a memtweakit score of over 117,000. Freaking insane overclock ability. That is all in a custom loop of a triple rad and a double rad cooling a bare die 4770k and 2 evga 770 superclocked 4GB cards. I am in love with this board. As someone whose first step into big overclocking is with this board and I managed not to break it or burn it with dangerous overclocks... the people with dead boards really messed up or got the runts of the litter which is just a manufacturing inevitability. Its frustrating but still... come on. Can't inspect every dang one. I am currently running a constant overclock of 4.3 GHz @ 1.26 V 24/7 and 24GB of ram 2.4GHz CL10. This board is expensive but freaking epic. Don't hesitate.

Pros: Where to begin... alright so I got this kit initially because I got it as a matching pair for a kit that came with my mobo I got online.. returned the mobo and the ram with it sadly but kept the kit from newegg. THANKFULLY I didn't return it. I know the 2400 MHz kit can overclock to 2600 MHz at the same timings basically so if you want a deal go for that one but if you want raw performance.. this kit or the 2800 MHz kit is what you want. I got this running with my Hawell (@4.626 GHz @ 1.534 V) at 2666MHz CL10-11-12-26-1T with a refresh of 180! ... it took a pounding at 1.95V but shoot was it amazing. Mem Tweakit score of 108,880 which is 2nd place on the scoreboard for Haswell dual channel ram scores. It can literally do whatever you want it to do.Buy it and don't look back.

Cons: I couldnt get it stable above 2800MHz but I'll be honest.. I didn't try hard since I didn't want to sacrifice CPU frequency. I might look back and wish I got the 16GB 2400 MHz kit instead since I usually run it at 2400 MHz anyway but... C'est la vie. I had a heck of a time overclocking it and got the kit for 20 bucks off so whatever.

Other Thoughts: Want a killer, fair priced ram kit get the 2x8 GB 2400MHz kit. Balls to the walls? Get this one. Most games and programs never even touch 8GB. If I run BF3, autocad and photoshop then I guess I'd be pushing it but I could just load some of the texture processing to my GPUs and boom I need 3 people on my keyboard to work everything open. Did I mention they are sexy? I have a ram cooler over them which sucks but without it.. pure awesomeness on my M6E. And if you think I am made of cash.. no. I am 22, a student and am just smart with money. It isn't impossible to afford
