"As the mid range standard bearer for ASUS ROG line, the Maximus VIII Hero does not disappoint in the least. It does just about everything well. Starting with the performance delivered out of the box, the board delivers top marks in most of the tests thanks to the back end work that ASUS' R&D team put in getting the auto algorithms and settings right. Booting up with four DDR4 2800MHz DIMMs populating all of the Q-Dimm sockets just worked as if it was nothing. Failed overclocks that lock up the board in the boot cycle at worst require a power cycle of the PSU to bring the board back on line after a failed boot. Something that now is an expectation for all boards due to how well ASUS manages boot failure and recovery."
