    Maximus X Hero Wifi USB 3.0 front port and pcie card issue, just a word of caution

    Board is great just a precaution depending on pcie cards in your build
    X Hero Wifi, 8700K@5.0 1.24V (delidded) Corsait H115i AIO), (can boot at 5.2 but stable at 5.0 AVX offset 0 Bios 0505
    32GB 4X8GB 3600CL16@3600CL16 1T
    EVGA 1080 FTW Hybrid,
    Creative SB Ae5,
    Samsung 960 Pro 1TB Win 10 FCU
    Intel 750 1.2TB
    Samsung 850 Evo 2TB
    WD 4TB Black
    Everything is working smooth as a baby's butt

    One little issue was the placement of the USB 3.0 front panel port location at bottom of board, after installing an Intel 750 pcie drive the front panel USB 3.0 cable could not be connected to the port on the motherboard, fortunately I had a slim USB 3.0 cable adapter which let me connect the front panel cable

    If the pcie card's length is shorter than my Intel drive you may be OK, I just happened to have the adapter on hand, just a caution you may need an adapter for your USB 3.0 cable
