Exclamation Asus ROG Crosshair VI Hero - Flagship AM4 Ryzen X370 Motherboard

A Photographic And Pictorial Introduction

Official Asus webpage
"AMD X370 ATX Gaming motherboard with Aura Sync RGB LEDs, DDR4 3200MHz, M.2, USB 3.1 front-panel connector and type-A/C"

  • Aura Sync RGB LED: Stunning synchronized effects and two Aura 4-pin RGB-strip headers
  • SupremeFX: Exclusive new codec plus intuitive Sonic Studio III and Sonic Radar III
  • Compatible with both AM3/AM4 coolers
  • ROG Water Cooling Zone : Dominate your cooling system
  • 5-Way Optimization: One-click system-wide overclocking.
  • Best gaming networking: Intel® Gigabit Ethernet, LANGuard and GameFirst technologies
  • Best gaming connectivity: M.2, USB 3.1 front-panel connector and both USB 3.1 Type-A/C
  • Best gaming durability: Safeslot and premium components for maximum durability




Overview




AM3 Mounting Support
Obviously a very big selling point especially during these early Ryzen launch days
  • AM2/3/3+ had a very long run with countless pre-existing cooling options - from air to water to LN2 pots
  • AM4 mounting brackets are virtually non-existent at Ryzen launch

This board is the most interesting board among the rest. So many io support, Am3 mounting holes, usb 3.1 type c front header.

I actually wonder why they came out with crosshair but not their sabertooth series.

Not confident enough. Unless the ryzen sells, you won't see a sabertooth version.

Packaging
Classic Red & Black ROG colours.






Unboxing



AM4 Bracket & Backplate
Unlike earlier iterations, this comes with a sticky textured backplate so a little more effort is needed to gently pry it off if you are not going to use it.

I was eyeing this board too. sadly it didn't have the 2x m2 slots that i wanted.

Have they solve the bricking issue with this board yet? Apparently the earlier sets have bricking issues.

And yet they are confident enough in AM3+?

I read that there's an empty M.2 2230 WiFi slot hidden under the BIOS flashback button area?
