Great when it worked

Justin C., Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: Kinda sad to deal with this a 3rd time and install it a 4th time. I buy several ASUS branded items for my builds. Starting to look at other brands to replace this board. I don't feel like being without a computer for a week or more again.
  • Pros: Great features
  • Cons: First 1 died after a year and a half. Sent it in but was not told what they fixed or if they replaced it. 2nd one came back greasy. Sata ports were not working correctly. Still was not told if they fixed or replaced it. 3rd takes forever to boot up with brand new SSD. Ethernet port doesn't work a...

  • Pros: I have had this board just over two years and never had a problem and it has run great.

Component burnt up

Amanda P., Newegg
27 November 2015
  • Summary: My recommendation is do not do business with this company they will do anything possible to avoid covering the warranty.
  • Pros: Board worked fine for a year and a half, and then one day one of the buses burnt up. Power supply is fine, the board was simply faulty and ASUS will not cover it under their warranty.
  • Cons: I will never do business again with ASUS after this encounter, their customer support is extremely sketchy. They will do anything in there power to keep you from speaking to a manager. The phone number that I received with my email regarding the RMA has been continually unreachable. I cannot expr...

ASUS Maximus VI Hero

Jesse R., Newegg
2 November 2015
  • Summary: Wish my board looked like the new iteration of this one.
  • Pros: I love the way this board looks, and I like the piece of mind it gives me knowing its made with quality parts. I haven't had any issues so far that weren't fixable - ill expand on that in the cons. So far this has been performing well and I don't have any complaints.
  • Cons: The only issue I had, which was why I took one egg, was with sound. There was some sort of glitch where the sound would randomly spaz out and get really loud, until I muted it. Then it would go back to normal. This seemed to have been fixed a little while back with an updated driver, but It was a...

Steal at full price, godly on discount

Anonymous, Newegg
27 October 2015
  • Pros: Great bios, sli ready, decent number of USB 3.0 ports and on board fan control plugs. Also, it is a lit motherboard if you like that, and you can turn the lighting off if it isn't your thing.
  • Cons: the warranty was so short due to it being open box.

not happy with ASUS

Jeff H., Newegg
21 October 2015
  • Summary: the motherboard stopped working correctly. i've sent it back to ASUS twice now and they haven't told me what is wrong with it nor have they told me what they fixed both times i sent it to them... my guess is they did nothing to it and just sent it back to me. it's still not working.
  • Pros: N/A
  • Cons: poor quality product poor customer service

Asus trials...

John K., Newegg
1 September 2015
  • Summary: I can only hope that the next board lasts!
  • Pros: High end feature sets on both the Z87 Expert and the Maximus Hero VI... BUT!!!
  • Cons: I have gone through 6 Z87 Expert boards and was fed up with all the downtime and the expense of shipping all those boards back. Asus was good enough to replace the Z87 board with a new Maximus Hero VI. It lasted 4 months and now will not post! Note well! I tested each and every board with new PSU...

Update

Lionel G., Amazon
25 August 2015
  • Summary: Sorry, I missed the small print indicating this was a used motherboard. My mistake. The fact remains that the "Used board" received was bad. Initially one of the USB connectors did not work. After 2 days the power switch stopped working. And then the reset switch stopped working.

Good Board, Minor issues

Anonymous, Newegg
21 July 2015
  • Pros: the board looks fantastic, went with my build color scheme great, and got it at a fair price (160). This was a first build with ASUS and it was very easy to set up.
  • Cons: The USB 3.0 ports is buggy, I'll be playing games and suddenly the keyboard and mouse shut off and turn on 5 or 6 times for about 3 seconds. this doesn't happen often, but it shouldn't happen at all...
