  • Asus ROG Dark Hero Review - 14900k Performance - Undervolting Benchmarks & Gaming

  • I do like the fact that the motherboard still comes with at least a single display connector so we have a HDMI connector built on top that's probably not going to be useful for gaming because if you're buying a motherboard like this you can have a dedicated graphics card but it's very useful for doing troubleshooting when you have a graphics card issue

  • ASUS's motherboard is a very high-end product, but also a solution for the few, which has, like the other high-end models, the task of introducing cutting-edge technologies that, in the future, may become cheaper and also be adopted in price ranges more affordable by 'ordinary mortals'.

  • The casing is particularly elaborate, with a metal body and several aluminium elements dedicated to the cooling of the M.2 SSDs on one side, and the unique Polymo Lighting on the other. [...] We also have a metal back plate that plays a dual role. It reinforces the rigidity of the PCB while providing an additional heat dissipation surface to aid cooling.

  • The ASUS ROG Maximus Z790 Dark Hero has very high-end features, making it one of the best motherboards to pair with Intel's new top-of-the-line. There is no shortage of internal connectors, and ASUS ROG has also paid special attention to custom liquid cooling by including three connectors dedicated to pump, water I/O, and flow, respectively.

  • We tested the ASUS ROG Z790 Dark Hero Wi-Fi 7, an absurd motherboard in terms of capabilities and functions. It has an understated yet imposing, massive look. Rich in detail, different material workings, an inordinate amount of finishing touches, and of course functions that are always at the top of the class. Furthermore, this ASUS ROG Z790 Dark Hero is a missile when it comes to performance. The note of merit for this ASUS ROG Z790 Dark Hero motherboard goes to its overclocking capabilities.
