    I am a bit surprised that there aren't more E-ATX motherboards out there geared towards gamers and enthusiasts.*It is nice to see an E-ATX motherboard come out that I would actually want if it wasn't for the many issues plaguing the Asus Crosshair VI line. The Crosshair VI Hero has more than enough issues to make me bitter enough from the lack of progress in stabilizing the board to even consider another Asus product. The extra fan headers are a good example. There are issues with the Hero where the CPU and AIO headers shut down for no reason. Why add more on basically an identical board when Asus can't even ensure the ones on the smaller board all work consistently?! With the extra room, the layout could have been improved more. The M.2 slot hidden under the heatsink seems silly, especially when the chipset gets quite hot. The 24 pin power connector turned 90 degrees is a nice touch but why not do the same with the 8 and 4 pin connectors on the top left area of the motherboard? Where are the other premium features to justify in the increased price? A 5 gigabit ethernet port would have been nice. I am not even going to get started on what is wrong with the sound and the lack of DTS and Dolby. Asus could have and should have done better but they didn't!

    Performance should be identical to the Crosshair VI Hero and Crosshair VI Hero (WiFi AC). It is essentially the same board with more fan headers, a slightly updated version of the audio (which still lacks Dolby and DTS), 90 degree 24 pin power connector, a second M.2 slot under the chipset heatsink, the IO panel is attached to the board, and the board is physically about an inch or so wider.

    Power section look same, first I notice is M.2 Heatsink and Dual M.2.
    RGB Aura on primary PCI-E slots. Angled 24pin and USB 3. ROG Backplate and Port Shield they call him Pre Mounted I/O Shield.
    I first saw that on Rampage V Edition 10 and look amazing. I like how they install fan headers in top right corner. There is more differences
    Enough for push-pull configuration on 280mm AIO.

    Price is 349$... Somehow I like that price.
    That's real price for premium motherboard.
    I understand if board with Intel chipset cost 50-60$ more, but they shouldn't be more expensive.
    Anyway AMD fans should be satisfied with price, look and features of Extreme.


    I would not resist to Extreme version for Ryzen 7.
    AMD will sold more processors in 2018 than in 2017, that's for sure.

    I always liked these ASUS buttons for Power and Reset and silver SupremeFX shiled.
    Last few years cables on my PC case are removed completely and no one except me can't enable PC.
    Only to open case and turn on PC on motherboard button. Case have lockers and it's not problem to remove side panel, anways I disable once in 3 months PC.
    I removed 1.5kg not necessary cables from case.
    24 angled and USB angled are really welcomed and improve cable management.

    performance is NOT identical to the Hero. The Extreme is much more powerful, and overclocks much better. It has several advantages over the Hero. Two m.2 slots, two usb 3.0 headers on the board, more fan control headers, better placement of the Qcode readout/start/reset/retry buttons, a molex at the bottom of the board better wifi and bluetooth built in and yes, even better rgb. It also has an attached faceplate on the rear I/O, and rgb audio ports. Reviewers are getting their highest clock speeds on this board of any am4 mobo's available. And I absolutely love the 90 degree 24 pin and 3.0 headers. So yes, there are major differences.

    What reviewers get and what the general public get when buying are usually two different things. The Crosshair VI Hero was known for being the best overclocker before the Extreme. The difference between the two is still very little, including in overclocking.
