ASUS ROG Maximus VI Hero Review
     Sat, Jul 06 2013 | 9:25A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overclocking is the bread and butter of a ROG motherboard from ASUS. The Maximus VI Hero has that overclocking DNA built in deep down into the product. You have ASUS` all digital Extreme Engine Digi+III 8+2 phase power circuit that utilizes 60A rated Black Wing Chokes with gold plated coils, 10K Nichicon GT Black Caps, and NexFet PowerBlock to deliver improved voltage regulation, higher efficiency, and a longer lifespan. Voltage regulation was really tight on this board and fell almost spot on to what was set manually. Haswell memory overclocking is much better than on Ivy Bridge, which was no slouch in its own right. ASUS T-Topology 2 technology improves memory overclocking by up to 10% with a single DIMM and up to 5% with two DIMMs installed. The fact that I was able to further overclock my set of G.Skill 2400MHz rated Trident modules up past 2600MHz is the proof of concept I needed."

ASUS Maximus VI Hero Z87 Motherboard Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Fri, Jul 05 2013 | 9:25A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For quite a while now ASUSs Republic of Gamers (ROG) motherboards have been the top of the line motherboards which offer very high-end and unique hardware and software features. For this reason they are a top choice of many enthusiasts and gamers. The one thing that keeps these boards out of the hands of many people is the price tag. The top of the line Maximus VI Extreme is currently selling for $399.99, which is quite a lot to just pay for a motherboard. ASUS knows that and wanted to give people the chance to get their hands on a Republic of Gamers board. That is where the Maximus VI Hero comes in, at just $229.99 it will still give you many of the same ROG features without some of the more Extreme ones that you may not use. This motherboard is designed for Intels latest 4th generation Haswell Core processors using the LGA1150 socket. Read on as we take this motherboard for a spin and see what all it has to offer."

Asus P8Z77-V Mainboard Review
     Thu, Jun 27 2013 | 5:50P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The functionality and features of this mainboard could have been fit for a flagship board of the past, but today it is just enough to place this product in the very mainstream segment, making it the junior model from Asus on Intel Z77 Express chipset. And it is probably the first time that we see wireless support implemented in a far not the top mainboard model like that.
