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.

- 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)

- 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!

Update: 6/25/2014
The 5th motherboard just crapped out. Code 55. Memory controller won't run memory at any speed beyond 800mhz. Another common problem with this mobo. I contacted Amazon and it's now heading back to their stockpile. I now give up on this piece of junk.

Update: 4/30/2014
After receiving my 4th, yes, 4th motherboard, I found that it too is defective. The raid controller is failing (unable to recognize the array until rebooting again) and sometimes when I save settings in the BIOS and exit, it reboots and re-enters the BIOS even though I didn't hit the Delete key. The onboard sound is randomly making a popping noise (of course I have the latest drivers!),..additionally, I tested using windows generic sound drivers. Turns out, the sound popping issue is common with this board. I also noticed that on this specific board I can't reach the 4500mhz that I could so easily achieve on the previous 3 boards. I have already set up a RMA and I am now ordering a 5th board. I am absolutely convinced that ASUS is playing the numbers game by pushing anything out the door and accepting the cost of increased returns. I have bought boards from ASUS since their formation and over time have noticed a steady decline in quality control. Fortunately, Amazon is eating the cost to ship these boards back and forth and ASUS is going to be hit with these costs once Amazon passes the charges on to them (which you can be sure they will). On an up note...their bios 1402 allows you to now disable HPET which greatly reduces latency in some games.

Update: 4/24/2014
I decided to keep trying to get a motherboard that didn't have the BIOS clock problem. Well, I'm on my 3rd motherboard and guess what.., the clock froze up.

I am sorry that the motherboard did not meet your expectations. Apart of the troubleshooting steps you tried, did you replace the CMOS battery? If not, I would recommend replacing the battery. It should be a simple fix, as batteries do sometimes expire. Should you have any questions regarding this, please don't hesitate to let me know through email. 3563483.

Kind regards,
