Reviews
Asus ROG MAXIMUS VIII HERO ALPHA, Intel Z170, S 1151, DDR4, SATA3, U.2, M.2, 2-Way SLi/3-Way CrossFire, USB3.1 A+C, ATX is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well featured gaming mobo Hwere to start with this mother board. The quality is very good. Layout has been well thought out with the exception of the on board led lighting which is completely obscured qhen the graphics card is seated. I went for a bling phanteks glass case and made full use of the rgb lighting on bith the case and the mobo and the result is stunning. The built in wifi and bluetooth are very useful fast too. Only concerns !; not enough usb 2 header support would have liked at least 1 more for compatability with other products. Not enough on board usb 3s either. Although theres plenty of bundled software with this board the price is a little too high. If you can find it on sale go for it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not work straight out of the box Did not work straight out of the box. The motherboard itself is badly designed with too many unnecessary plastic bits close to where the holes are for screwing into the chassis. Ergonomic-wise it is a nightmare of bad design choices. The plastic may look cool to the easily pleased but they add hassle to the build process. All that is irrelevant though since the board itself did not work from the moment I received it and has gone back to Asus.
