Once again the time had come for me to build a new PC. In the past I've looked at many boards but always ended up with an Asus Deluxe motherboard for each new build. I like the higher quality components and prefer to have additional flexibility when overclocking. My oldest system currently running is based on the P5WDH Deluxe and has been running steadily for seven years now.

However, the Deluxe boards usually include new gadgets and many extra features that I usually end up not using. After my last build I realized that all the extras that Asus threw on my Deluxe board I had disabled: the non-Windows-based mini OS on a flash stick for quick email and web surfing, the SAS controller, the built-in Wi-fi, dual LAN ports etc.

I found myself thinking, "If only Asus would make a simpler board with high quality components, and easy overclocking. Just what I need, and no extras driving the cost over $300." Enter the Maximus VI Hero.

[The GOOD]
I use my PC for photography, music, and gaming. When it comes to features, this board has everything I need and none of what I don't. The features I like:
- High quality black capacitors (rated for 10 years), BlackWing chokes, and efficient MOSFETs
- Up to 8 USB2 and 6 USB3 ports
- Support for 2-way SLI, no unnecessary PLX chip for me
- PCIe slot layout easily accommodates 2-way SLI and I can use the other slots for my other cards without interference
- Intel LAN
- 8 SATA 6Gbps ports (6 native, 2 from the ASMedia controller)
- Super fast boot time, I'm logging into Windows 8 about 10 seconds after hitting the power button.

The board has a sharp looking color scheme. I like the look of the black PCB coupled with red and white highlights.

Bought this MB for a gaming rig build. The entire build was the most expensive build I have ever done. I used only excellent quality components and refrained from too many compromises on price vs. performance.

I do TONS and TONS of research before I buy something and this is no exception. Asus has an excellent rep with rock solid boards and great quality control.

This is no exception. This board booted up and worked exactly as advertised...I can't complain at all about that. The merits of the board are easily seen both in the recommendations here and buy doing a few google searches.

Where I struggle some is real value of this board vs. ASRock or MSI. My previous board was an MSI. Zero problems 5 years later.

I think if you are going for extreme over clocking this has some nice things that other boards may not, but no blue tooth or wifi support and the fact I see nothing to recommend for the casual over clocker over a board at 1/2 the cost... I do not think I can recommend this board to anyone.

That is not to say this board is not rock solid and does exactly what they say it will...it is just for $100 dollars less you can get more functionality unless you are truely into hard core over clocking.

Pros:
- Excellent build quality, board design, and layout.
- Excellent BIOS, nothing too fancy or annoying, it does its job.
- Great stability and voltage delivery (no crashes due to the board yet)
- Aesthetically it's very pleasing. (Opinion)
- Great on-board sound! (First real thing I noticed, no need for a sound card unless you truly need one)
- Quick BIOS Post! (Unlike my previous board, Asus Maximus III Formula)

Cons:
- Tech support could've been better

Other Thoughts: My issue with tech support and the software is that I pay a premium for an ASUS board and they didn't deliver on their promise. My AI Suite III will not install for some unknown reason(It's not my fault I've tried countless different things). I called tech support and they gave me a run around that ended in a path to no where. However, Asus has henceforth fixed this issue with their software and drivers.

My Build:
Asus Maximus VI Hero
Intel Core i7 4770K @ 4.0 Ghz (25C-30C Idle, 60C 100% Load -> 1hr of Aida64)
Prolimatech Megahalems CPU Cooler
Asus GTX 770
G-Skill 8GB DDR3 @ 1600Mhz
Samsung 840 Series 250GB SSD
Corsair HX850W PSU
Cooler Master HAF-XB Case

Edit 1: Asus has fixed the issue with their Software and Drivers not installing properly. I can now give this motherboard a 5/5 stars. Excellent job fixing this problem in a relatively quick time!

Verified Purchase
I love the features of this board. I'm a first time PC builder and I selected this board for its easy overclocking abilities, design and availble features. Install went great, no issues except when I was installing the supplied drivers. At first, I used the ASUS instALL feature which was nice. I could select all the drivers and additional software that ASUS offers with their product and weed out the unwanted bloatware too. After the installation and reboot, my system took 5-10 minutes to boot back up. That is that once windows 8.1 had loaded up to desktop mode, all programs seemed to be frozen for the next 5-10 minutes. The PC wasn't frozen, I could still refresh the computer and move the mouse just fine, but anything program related went extremely slow. Until that time frame passed, I couldn't do anything. Once the time frame passed, everything was normal, going fast like it should. So after doing some research and not finding anything that could help me, I decided to do a System Refresh, which solved the issue. I then began to install the drivers one by one to see which one(s) was causing the problem. So after a little bit of installing and rebooting, It came down to two programs that would cause the extreme slow boot process. It was the Real Tek Audio drivers and the Asus Management Engine Interface driver. Just uninstalling doesnt work either, atleast for the ASUS MEI driver. The Real tek could be uninstalled and performance would return. But the ASUS MEI driver doesnt matter if you uninstall it or not. Your stuck with the slowness. I'm sure there is a way to fix it without having to refresh the PC, but I don't know how.
But other than the drivers issues, its a awesome board.
PROs- Plenty of USB slots, Plenty of SATA connectors.
