Of the handful of Z370 boards we’ve tested so far, this Maximus X is kind of our Hero, and that’s not just its name. The performance was impressive from start to finish with the Hero taking first place in the majority of our test suites and programs.

Worth Buying

It is within those main areas – customisation, watercooling and overclocking/diagnostics – that the Maximus X Formula cements itself as a premium offering in a demanding but niche market segment.


Expert Reviews

Best Buy

“A fantastic Z370 motherboard with all the essential enthusiast features and decent overclocking abilities, all for a reasonable price”




“The Asus Maximus X Hero has some of that special sauce, from a really useful, good-looking I/O shield, capable M.2 heatsink, cooling opportunities through a raft of fan headers (including one dedicated to heavy-duty watercooling) and handy onboard buttons.”





GERMANY 2017/10/05



“Asus has also created a feature-packed and much more premium-feeling motherboard here too, and ultimately it would be in our top three if we were building a water-cooled rig with a decent budget.”




“Once again ASUS has delivered with their Maximus spec motherboard and whilst it is very similar to its predecessor, it does add some nice, incremental upgrades. The only real let downs here come from the Intel side, mainly the lack of backwards compatibility and the incremental CPU performance increases...”


Tech TeamGB

Worth Money

“It is certainly worth your money if you are looking for a motherboard in this price point.”




“The carefully placed headers, wide selection of expansion and storage options as well as the extremely easy-to-use BIOS mean that the ASUS Z370 Maximus X Hero is yet another in a long line of successful ASUS product launches and wins our OC3D Performance Award.”
