Get some Mini-ITX magic as we dive into the new Maximus VII Impact. Dig the density of its hardware, and build a PC that packs a neat mPCIe Combo card, combining M.2 PCI-E x4 that delivers up to 32Gbps throughput and a bundled 802.11ac Wi-Fi adapter. Together with up to 16GB of DDR3, SupremeFX quality audio and overclocking performance like you’re using a full ATX board, build small, but accept no compromise.
So you’ve bought yourself a Crossblade Ranger and an A10-7850K to go with it: now it’s time to turn up the dials! Here is ROG’s guide with some CrossBlade ranger overclocking tips that covers a basic OC to finding the limits for benchmarking.
Our friends at PC DIY have dissected and detailed the latest 802.11ac routers: RT-AC87U (and related RT-AC87R available in Best Buy, USA). It might look closer to a G-series laptop than your average router, but it seems the design begets performance as these are the worlds first routers with 4-antenna, 4-stream design with beam-forming that can max wireless throughput at a combined (2.4GHz+5GHz) 2334Mbps, and world’s fastest 5GHz at 1743 Mbps.
This best bit is, arguably, applicable to most of our homes or offices that daily connect dozens of wireless devices – everyone’s smartphones, tablets, a few laptops and PCs – to a single wireless access point. Instead of limiting everything to the slowest device, The RT-AC87U can connect at their respective best speeds.

If you’ve already got or just recently bought a Maximus VI or ASUS Z87 motherboard and have bought a new Intel Core i7 4790K or 4670K CPU dubbed ‘Devil’s Canyon’, or even a new Pentium Anniversary Edition G3258 CPU, then it’s likely your PC won’t boot straight out the box! This is because you need to update the BIOS to the latest version to give support for these new CPUs on the older Z87 platform.
Using the USB BIOS Flashback you can update the Z87 BIOS to the latest version, providing support for Devil’s Canyon without first needing an ‘original Haswell’ CPU.
