ASUS ROG Crosshair VI Hero AM4 Motherboard Review
     Thu, May 11 2017 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Crosshair VI Hero is one of the high-end boards for the AM4 platform we have very much enjoyed thanks to the multitude of available interfaces, good quality components, beefy VRM but also a fully-featured and easy to use UEFI interface. This board does impress by having a ton of USB ports on the I.O so you can plug a ton of devices in the back, you can connect your own RGB strips to the dual Aura-lighting headers, monitor your cooling system via dedicated water temperature and flow-rate headers but also install your trusty AM3 compatible water pump/cooler due to the unique compatible mounting system."

Prime Z270-A motherboard
     Wed, May 10 2017 | 6:22P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"ASUS continues to tread the fine line between value and performance with its latest revision of its base channel board in the Prime Z270-A motherboard. With the release of this new board, ASUS subtly changed the aesthetics with this board, giving it a more futuristic and tech-savvy vibe while still sticking with the based black and white coloration. Further, they added support for dual M.2 devices while not sacrificing the number of SATA devices supported by the board. And the board performs as well as its more expensive siblings. Its overclocking performance was another feather in the board's cap, easily matching that of its more pricey siblings with one caveat - its inability to boot with memory over 3866MHz. However, that issue is most likely fixable via a BIOS update. All in all, a good board with a solid feature set."

Strix Z270E Gaming motherboard
     Tue, May 09 2017 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS continues to differentiate its product lines, expanding their Strix gaming product line with the Strix Z270E Gaming motherboard. The board combines a killer aesthetic with a rich feature set to make for a compelling product. Take into account its performance, and you have a solid product. One of the nicer additions was the support for dual external RGB LED strips, something not many boards has currently. The board performed very well across the board at stock speeds. Its overclocking performance was very good as well with a single caveat - its inability to boot with memory over 3866MHz. However, that issue is most likely fixable via a BIOS update. All in all, a good board with a solid feature set."
