great motherboard, great price

William P., Newegg
17 May 2015
  • Summary: high end motherboard available for budget board prices? buying this board was a no-brainer.
  • Pros: Got this on sale for $129, can't beat that price, especially with all of the features on this board. I guess people are buying the z97 boards now, silly of them, this board works with DC as well; with bios flashback there is no real risk of incompatibilities, and Asus does a solid job of updating...

User Review

Charles W., Newegg

  • Summary: I chose this mobo over the newer Gene VII due to the fact that the mPCIe combo II card is included with this board and NOT with the newer Gene VII. Asus sells this seperately for an additional $50.
  • Pros: -Countless Features -Amazing build quality -mPCIe combo card II included! -UEFI bios is very fluid
  • Cons: Not really a con, but do be aware that the newer Gene VII is now available. More info as to why i chose this one instead is below in "Other Thoughts"

  • Summary: ASUS makes great motherboards--but I won't buy motherboards from anybody except Amazon. The motherboard was easy to install, the instruction manual is clear and the final build was spectacular!

Asus did it again

Darrell I., Newegg
20 March 2014
  • Summary: As good as bacon
  • Pros: This board rocks! So many cool options! This is a fantastic board. From the bios to all the cool stuff on the board. I like all the features. It lights up red too which is totally awesome. I feel bad that I put an i5 in it. There is a lot of potential with this board. I haven't started yet but I ...

Best Micro ATX board out there!

Travis E., Newegg
9 March 2014
  • Summary: I am not sure why there are people complaining that ASUS did not shrinkwrap the box. IF the board was used it would be very clear since it is almost impossible to remove from the cardboard packaging. You could not get it back into the tray unnoticed. The board comes really securely packaged.
  • Pros: Ordered this board for a new LGA 1150 build after endless reviews of MATX boards. This board by far was the most recommended out there. Full of features, well thought out and a blazing fast board! If you are building a MATX system this IS the board you are looking for! Check out the review over o...
  • Cons: The board itself - none. I have read many reviews of Asus's customer service though is on the decline. I hope this is not the case.

Good Value

Michael T., Newegg
10 February 2014
  • Summary: Coming from a Crosshair IV formula, there is a LOT more to do in the BIOS of this beast (UEFI) than previous BIOSes, which can be a con or a pro depending on your expertise.
  • Pros: This board is the best value for the money that I could find for Intel builds and comes feature-packed and comes with at least 90% of the hardware features as the up-to double price other Maximus VI's. All the same software is included with the standard Maximus drivers disk, so there's no loss th...
  • Cons: Board is pretty unclear about chip position and installing 3rd-party cooling systems is slightly harder than AMD systems. Price, although I can't really blame ASUS because this is, of course, an Intel board, and Intel platforms just cost more just because of the Intel name, so you kind of have to...
