    Asus maximus VII Ranger replaced by pro gamer?

    Hy guys i have a question, maybe someone knows what is happening, my motherboard is rma'd and they don't have this motherboard anymore and they are giving my money back because they don't have in stock anymore, and i tryed to buy it from somewhere else but it is out of stock everywhere. It doesn't product it anymore or is it replaced by the pro gamer. I noticed that pro gamer has sata express, so my question is to buy that motherboard or better to buy the hero. I need a good motherboard to sustain and in the future to overclock my 4790k procesor.

    Hello Shakecip

    I'd choose the hero if it's available and within your budget. The hero has better power delivery which will help with overclocking and likely have more overclocking features/options.

    The pro gamer is semi - ROG so to say.

    Thanks Nate for your reply. I also think that hero would be the best, if it had the sata express it would be the perfect motherboard.

    I got one question, i received my motherboard asus maximus vii hero and when i placed in my case the screew from the back of my motherboard it scratched i little bit and the paint in the back of the motherboard where is the hole it came down. This would be a problem of functionality? Does that void my waranty? Because i see that in all the holes is a white circle wich i think that it determines the limit but it didn't reach that line. Is is a problem? My motherboard seems to run normal or should i retun it? Sory for my bad language but i think that you understand what i mean.

    The warranty probably won't cover physical damage to the board.

    As long as everything is running as it should, you will probably be fine.
