Asus Maximus VI Hero (Z87) Motherboard Review

Rating: 8.0.

Providing a fresh burst of excitement in Asus’ premium Republic Of Gamers series, the Maximus VI Hero is the first ROG motherboard built specifically for the mid-range gamer. Has Asus’ price-constricting approach paid off?

Sparking attention due to its true gaming-orientated design and a price tag to match, the Maximus VI Hero is Asus’ newest ATX member of its Republic Of Gamers motherboard series. With the Hero, Asus aims to offer all of the gaming-intended features typically found on ROG boards, but with a lower price tag achieved by omitting the enthusiast hardware such as PLX PCI-E switches.

With support for SLI/CrossFire configurations, SupremeFX audio, and gaming enhancements, can the Asus Maximus VI Hero prove that it has what it takes to win over the gaming crowd?



  • SupremeFX – Supremacy through discrete-calibre audio
  • Sonic Radar – Scan and detect to dominate
  • Extreme Engine Digi+ III – Hardcore power delivery with premium components
  • GameFirst II + Intel LAN – Put Your Frags First
