    1.48v for 5ghz?!?
    Should have shot way higher with that amount of juice.

    That's the requested VID before load-line is applied etc. Anyhow I just needed to get the power consumption up to verify there's no 200W limit.

    Gamersnexus is preparing a teardown/board analysys of the Maximus XI hero board, by the way I purchased the XI hero anyway, I have been using Asus for 15 years and in the end could not really change my favorite brand I appreciate everyone here that explained the 4/8 phases of the hero. I'm still unhappy about it but at least is not as bad as it initially looked like. I will wait for the Teardown, Asus really needs to explain these phases properly it partly looks as if they were being deceptive on purpose, not nice.

    Do not replace this big and beautiful brand, my life is Asus, I never and never give up for anything.

    Sorry for being a bit late to the party here, but I've just ordered the Maximus XI Formula to go with my 9900k, shortly after I've discovered that it seems to have the same VRM layout as the Hero. If I read correctly, earlier in this thread it was stated that the power stages are 50A units, but looking at the Z370 tier list so were the previous Maximus X boards: https://external-preview.redd.it/5UN...=webp&a234c36a

    I bought the Z390 Formula as I wanted to upgrade from my Maximus X Code to something with better overclocking potential for the 9900k, but if they have the same number of 50A power stages and the same number of phases, then the only real difference is the model numbers of some of the components and the extra 4-pin EPS connector.. Does that really make it an upgrade from the Maximus X lineup?

    I saw Steve from HU released another video today testing the Z390 Hero against other boards and it had one of the hotter VRMs, he also said the CPU required more voltage on that board than the other 3 he tested... This goes against what I was always led to believe, in that the ROG boards were generally some of the best for overclocking..



    I am a bit concerned now, I absolutely love the looks and feature sets on the ROG boards and the BIOS is fantastic. But it almost looks like the power delivery wasn't upgraded at all from Z370.. For $719 AUD I would've expected a really good power delivery setup. Have I misunderstood something here? I hope I have :/

    Hardware unboxed conclusion the hero is a 4 power phases board, also performs the worst of the bunch, can someone from Asus clarify to their consumer base what is going on here PLEASE:

    The conclusion (brutal actually).

    I would also like to know what is going on... very very fishy

    Has Asus ROG lost their will to produce high end products in favor of higher profit margins?

    I am just about returning my Maximus XI Hero, still in the 30 day return phase...

    This is bad. I'm not happy now. On top of this the board is locking up randomly, not detecting IDE drives at boot randomly and generally behaving like a low quality component.

    Sorry for my Off-Topic. My Z370-A throttles because of VRM heat with mild overclocks already when tools report 150Watt for the 8700k while a cheaper ASRock z370 has no problem to deliver 200Watt.
    Seems like Asus found a way to maximize profit with a cheap trick.

    I’ve got a Max X Hero and Prime Z370-A both with 8086Ks (9900K hasn’t arrived yet).
    There is a massive difference in those 2 motherboards. With no AVX offsets, the Hero does 5.0 @ 3.6v, the Prime does 4.8 @ 3.6v. The Prime boards are awful.
