    TUF Z270 MARK 1

    Gold

    “Performance of the new Intel Caby Lake CPU and any new Z270 based Motherboard may not be a big deal for us Gamers. But this new Asus TUF Z270 Mark 1 is a very special Motherboard in my opinion and it earns itself a special place in my heart (yes I really do like it that much!). It also earns itself a much deserved Gold award.” more

    ROG MAXIMUS IX HERO

    Gold Award

    “It's clear this is a fully featured, and striking motherboard. Yet given the capabilities offered to anyone picking it up, it's also clear just how good it is across the board. Essentially, Asus has delivered an Z270 Maximus product that's hard to beat. High-quality components and strong specifications match striking design and great performance – if other Maximus products perform to relatively high levels Asus can be proud.”

    “The big question for you, the consumer: should you buy it? i think it all comes down to how much of the availability functionality you use - obviously not everyone can use everything that this board has to offer, but if you can use enough to justify the price tag, then it's certainly worth serious consideration for your next Kabylake custom PC.” more

    ROG MAXIMUS IX CODE

    Performance

    “Speaking of running quickly, wow these things are absolute monsters... In addition to the high CPU overclocking the Maximus IX also managed to run with 4000 MHz memory at the same time, something which pretty much puts them in a class of their own. If you're in the market to bust some overclocking records with the latest i7-7700K then the ASUS ROG offerings are a real good place to start. The quality of the BIOS aids this too. The ASUS ROG team who work on their BIOS have had plenty of experience and it shows, with both the Code and the Formula working perfectly straight out the box.”
