When you first set your eyes on the MAXIMUS VII HERO , you notice how good this board actually looks. Like most of the ROG products, this board has a red and black scheme with a matte black PCB and red highlights dotted around the heat sinks and expansion slots. However, there are also some bright red sections on the PCB, as well as some red LEDs on the chipset heat sink, which makes this board really stand out from the competition. Your not just paying for some LEDs though, this bad boy comes loaded with great features. The board comes with the ROG SupremeFX 8-Channel High Definition Audio, which supplied the board with much better audio than expected, giving you great audio for gaming. Asus has also included Intel Ethernet, LANGuard, GameFirst III, claiming that this is taking game networking to the next level. The HERO supports Intel LGA1150 4th, new 4th & 5th-Generation Core i7/Core, i5/Core, i3 /Pentium/ Celeron processors. Now let’s take a look at specs which are listed below.
