Dear Valued Customer,

I'm sorry to hear that you are unsatisfied with the features of this motherboard. This is certainly not the kind of experience that we want any of our customers to have. I will forward your feedback to the Product team for review. Are you having any specific issues with the board itself that would reflect a 3-Egg review? If you have any general or technical questions, please email me at cl-lane@asus.com and include case #N2007103736 for reference.

Thank you for choosing ASUS!

Best regards,
Lane

5 eggs, would not let me correct my egg count 7/27/2020 1:34:44 PM

Pros: well conceived board, proves that even with 1/2 a brain u can swap motherboards.
excellent manual and docs, took me longer to lose all my MSI software then to install the board.
runs my i9-10900k, out of box at 4.8-5.3ghz and i can set RGBs to turn red if it heats over the limit i set (hasnt happened YET). matching it with a rog STRIX rtx-2080ti o11g doesnt hurt either. sound system is great, recommend AC/DC at 92db 7.1 surround sound.

Cons: may not be an actual "con", but i cant seem to hold this thing back. its a thorough-bred, and just wants to flat out race, even when i told it in bios to use intel defaults. but since it passes stresses and gaming on all accounts, runs my cpu cool (even tho im temporarily using my old i5-6600k corsair 140mm aio!) so just let her rip.

Overall Review: matched with a monster GPU, it can get expensive, but if the kids are fed, and the wife doesnt see that bill, screw the mortgage payment and upgrade the PC. if u wanna get similar gaming performance for a little less, look at the maximus xii hero and an i9-9900k. the wife will still freak tho.
5 EGGS (sorry for the 1 egg, couldnt change it)

Monster Board and Platform 6/9/2020 3:23:59 AM

Pros: 10900k is running at 5.4ghz @ 1.315V with XMP enabled 4133mhz ram 32GB.

Cons: RGB could be a tad brighter, initial launch bios had issues with XMP on my memory kit.

Overall Review: Overall, its pricey but well worth it if you want the best in terms of features and hardware.

Fantastic Motherboard 5/26/2020 2:59:08 PM

Pros: Worked out of the box like a champ. Has all the ports and headers you need. Beefy VRM and nice ready to go custom water cooling set up which may be more necessary with the power draw of 10 series CPUs. I found over the years that the less expensive Hero is always 1-2 features short for me (not enough usb, sata, headers, etc) while the extreme has way too much stuff that I never end up using. The Formula seems to get the right "Formula" down :-)

Cons: Only cons I notice is that the silly rgb lights on the board are very dim. Honestly once the board is covered in parts you probably wouldn't notice even if they were bright so no big loss here. Only other con I noticed is that Ai Suite software still has a few oddities (why does Ai Cooling go bonkers and set fans to 100% if I set more than one source?)but is immensely better and more useful then in years past.

Overall Review: The design is beautiful and the feature set is perfect for that advanced builder that's looking to overclock with custom cooling and a variety of fans, drives, and accessories. If you're looking to build a monster with 30 fans 6 monitors, and 10 drives the Extreme would probably be a better fit in that case. If you're just using an AIO or beefy heatsink fan cooler with a few drives then the Hero is probably the better fit.

Out of the all the motherboards I've owned over the years, this is easily my favorite.
