While the Maximus VIII Hero is an excellent overclocking motherboard, it also has some other noteworthy features. ASUS did a really good job with the audio, and the aesthetics of the motherboard are sure to turn heads. The Maximus VIII Hero should also be priced competitively. At around $230, it should be a very popular board because of its feature set and ROG extras. Overall, the Maximus VIII Hero impressed me with its looks, features, and performance, but on top of all that, it is a solid overclocking motherboard.
