Review Intel Core i9 13900k, the world's most powerful CPU of 2022 with the ROG motherboard for gamers.

Review of intel gen 13 with ROG Z790 board paired with with a powerful 4090.

The ROG SWIFT PG259QN 360HZ is a top-of-the-line monitor with excellent performance. In fact, what is excellent is not only the image quality but the monitor also passed the color texture test.

It is an excellent product that on first impression appears to be complete and has excellent performance. As usual, we appreciated Asus' thoughtful design and look forward to putting it to the test

My setup is all ASUS ROG and includes a build enclosed in the ROG Hyperion GR701 case, the ROG Strix Scope II 96 Wireless keyboard, the fantastic ROG Moonstone Ace L glass mat, the lightweight ROG Harpe Ace Aim Lab Edition mouse, the ROG Falchion ace mini keyboard and the Rog Gladius III mouse.

The ASUS ROG Hyperion is a beautiful case.

Used for Diablo pc assembly

Like the Maximus models, the latest Z790 Hero allows us to easily overclock our Core i9-13900K processor and get even higher performance.

The RAM support for ROG Z790 Maximus Hero should be evaluated separately. Because the new Hero pushes the limits in this regard.
