    ASUS Crosshair VIII Hero / Formula

    I want to show motherboards to enthusiasts who not read news everyday and plan to upgrade on new AMD processors.
    I mean it's very hard from my perspective impossible to real enthusiast now invest in Intel platform when PCI-E 3.0 become obsolete and every new high end device will be PCI-E 4.0.

    PCI-E 3.0 price will drop and SSD will be sold for gaming and storage devices for significant less prices.
    Gen 3.0 Interface for sure is not reason why someone need instantly to jump from almost same powerfull platform, but if we talk about people who plan upgrade longer time and need better performance even 30-40% lower price is not enough for investing in Intel.

    AMD litterary saved Intel with prices of motherboard, They always deal about such things no matter on competition.
    Imagine if Crossshair VI Hero cost 300-350$ and you build platform almost for price of i9-9900K PCI-E 3.0.
    AMD helped them and instantly delay upgrade for 30-40% of customers with motherboard prices.
    And delay is best Intel can get from customers, why they sent stories about PCI-E 5.0, probably to customers ask self What if Intel launch Gen 5.0 and I upgraded before few months. Enough to get on time before they launch processors and motherboards with PCI-E 4.0 support.

    But if someone don't want to wait and want best of now this is motherboard for him.
    With Wi-fI 6 802.11ax Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0
    New PCH X570 Gen 4.0 Support 40 PCI-E lanes.
    Bottom slots with black locker are probably depend from PCH.
    Great motherboard, active cooling for chipset and M.2 slots completely covered.
    This is motherboard profile we used to see before only with Intel chipsets.
    Much better look when customer remove plastic part around processor and install watercooling.

    Nicest Crosshair ASUS ever launched.
    Only I would be so happy to see same 24pin as GIGABYTE, metal, angled really look newer and innovative and replace this old looking type of connectors.

    Formula have uncover SupremeFX and shield on him look amazing.
    I like to see him exposed even if I use dedicate sound card.
    Off course watercooling is recommended for this kind of platform and motherboards. AIO or custom liquid cooling.

    I like little more how shield on Formula is more complete, from edge to edge on bottom parts.
    Silver-Black, unbeatable color scheme for PC hardware, domination of black with good ammount of silver details.
