"Reaching over 20 million people, no other survey comes close to capturing the collective wisdom of the people when it comes to the deciding the ‘Best of the Best’ in the technology sector."
"With a crisp design, solid performance and only minor memory niggles, it's well equipped, performs solidly and has even managed some world record overclocks under LN2."
“If you’re looking for a high-end gaming motherboard for your new Ryzen CPU, with a robust range of features and great performance, the ASUS RoG Crosshair VI Hero is one of the best X370 motherboards on the market today!”
“There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that the CROSSHAIR VI HERO is a top performing X370 motherboard and possibly one of the best, if not the best currently on AM4’s new chipset.”
“A strong high-end AM4 offering with a good balance of features and solid overclocking support.”
"With audio and next-gen storage performance on par with Intel-based rivals plus all the usual Asus ROG features, the stage is set for a battle between Intel and AMD, and the Crosshair VI Hero is a great example of a board that will be able to take the fight to Intel. There are some niggles you'll need to be aware of such as RAM speed compatibility and if you're gunning for a maximum overclock then you may get familiar with the CMOS clear button, but for now, this is one of the best-featured AM4 boards out there from Ryzen CPUs."
“With fantastic looks, outstanding overclocking performance and all the latest bells and whistles that we've come to expect from a high end motherboard plus endless amounts of things to tweak, tune and mess about with the ASUS Crosshair VI Hero is thoroughly deserving of our OC3D Enthusiast Award.”
"Upgrading to Ryzen? This is the perfect board that offers tons of features, and sleek visuals. A solid UEFI, great software and a fair price...Go for it!"
“I think I am going to go for a Gold Award as well. It’s a really impressive motherboard…It’s a great board for overclocking, especially if you are more in the advanced category for that.”
