ASUS Maximus VI HERO motherboard review

The Guru of 3D
27 August 2013
  • Summary: The Z87 Maximus VI Hero is a pretty interesting motherboard for many reasons. It is what I consider to be a high-end grade and class product, though priced in the upper range of mainstream. The Hero will fill the gap between the Formula and the Gene series, giving standard form factor users the ROG experience and quality without the price of the Formula and Extreme.

ASUS Maximus VI Hero LGA 1150 Motherboard Review

21 August 2013
  • Summary: The ASUS Republic of Gamers brand represents the best ASUS has to offer. Unfortunately the best usually comes with a high price tag placing such boards out of reach for many. Never fear for the ASUS Maximus VI Hero is here! OK with a name like that I couldn’t resist. The Hero offers the core enthusiast features found in all ROG boards with less fluff.

  • Summary: When I heard what ASUS was calling their new SKU, I almost choked. I really thought ASUS might be taking a big risk here with the MAXIMUS VI HERO, and I even added some Tina Tuner to my music playlist as I began my testing. Everything worked pretty well, but when I tested the power consumption numbers, I was not surprised to find some far higher than expected. I even started singing along with Tina, images of Mad Max floating through my head.
  • Pros: New ROG SKU for those looking to get ROG features in ATX format with ROG mATX pricing, Packed with high-end features to keep your system stable, Excellent stock and good overclocked performance, PCIe x4 slot connected to Z87 PCH for memory overclocking, Decent accessories package, Wide-open BIOS ready for tweaking to the limit, All fans independently controllable, Superb memory overclocking, Fully functional AMI UEFI BIOS that includes mouse support and support for 3 ...
  • Cons: Mixed overclocking performance (will be improved with newer BIOSes now in testing), Power consumption a bit high, No Intel Thunderbolt, Color scheme used may not appeal to all

Expert Review

Tweak Town
11 July 2013
  • Excerpt: At the launch of the new Intel Haswell platform, the motherboard we used to test the new Core i7 4770K CPU was also the first motherboard we reviewed. The ASUS Z87-Expert impressed us and did a good job of setting a benchmark for boards to follow. Like we mentioned in that initial review, when it comes to the first board or two of a new platform, it doesn't always have the opportunity to shine in the best light.

ASUS Z87 Maximus VI Hero Review

  • Conclusion: With such a vast selection of Z87 motherboards already available, the ASUS Maximus VI Hero finds itself in a fight for relevance against some well-equipped competitors. However, this board is approaches its audience from a different perspective. Like its Republic of Gamers predecessors, the Hero targets enthusiasts and gamers but there’s a no-frills approach here that’s quite enticing for anyone that doesn’t need a ton of secondary features but still wants legendary...

Test: ASUS Maximus VI Hero (0)

11 December 2013
  • Summary: Maximus VI Hero är ett bra moderkort för sitt pris. Köparen får bra komponenter, ROG-funktioner och ett moderkort som lämpar sig för överklockning. Den använda Haswell-processorn gick att överklocka relativt bra med den 8-fasiga strömförsörjningen, som är identisk med Maximus VI Extreme. Även om moderkortet kommer med användbara funktioner som start- och omstartknapp, debug LED, directkey och MemOK!
  • Pros: Mycket hög prestanda med bra strömförsörjning till processorn och utmärkta överklockningsfunktioner, Välutrustad, vilket bland annat inkluderar sex USB 3.0- och åtta SATA 6G-anslutningar, Två PCI Express 3.0 PEG-portar, Mycket bra stabilitet och bra effektivitet, Relativt billig för ett ATX ROG-moderkort
  • Cons: Inga märkbara

Тест и обзор: ASUS Maximus VI Hero - бюджетная...

27 November 2013
  • Summary: Сможет ли покупатель Maximus VI Hero стать "героем" на виртуальном поле боя? Если не обращать внимания на цену, то в пользу материнской платы говорит очень многое. Всё же вы получите модель из знаменитого семейства ROG в формате ATX с большим количеством эксклюзивных функций ROG - собственно, по этой причине тайваньский производитель просит свою цену.
  • Pros: Мощная подсистема питания CPU с расширенными функциями разгона, Хорошее оснащение, в том числе шесть портов USB 3.0 и восемь портов SATA 6G, Поддержка PCI Express 3.0 на двух слотах PEG, Очень хорошая производительность, очень хорошая стабильность и хорошая эффективность, Сравнительно недорогая для материнских плат Full ATX ROG
  • Cons: Нет
