Reviews
Asus ROG Maximus VIII Ranger, Intel Z170, S 1151, DDR4, SATAe, M.2 (PCIe/SATA), 2-Way SLi/3-Way CrossFire,USB3.1A+C, ATX is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product I love Asus motherboards and have done for a while. The only negative aspect on this board is the amount of USB slots. Other than that, perfect! Cheap, while still allowing OC options. Fantastic gaming board.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install, good manual, few more SATA ports would be nice Used this with a intel i7, had no problems fitting a large passive heatsink. Error codes leave a little to be desired, had to do a lot of googling/thinking until I found my monitor has died. Would recommend over the cheaper Asus Z170-A I used in my other system, it seems a bit more robust.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Supports SLI, if you want that kind of thing I have to say I bought this graphics card thinking a bit in getting a second gtx 970 in one or two years time. Rookie mistake, everyone knows that won't happen, because in 2-3 years I'll probably just get rid of my gtx 970 and get whatever's new in Nvidia world. The motherboard is great, but I'm sure I would have achieved the same by spending £50 less.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No complaints Very good board, but the software is very 'ROG', but that is what I bought and not a complaint. That said, the onboard sound is OK but most definitely not as good as a dedicated sound card.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Motherboard After studying Intel boards, I went for this one as it will last way into the future. Has many SATA/USB3 slots on it, DDR4 memory and has great reviews on the web. I previously had an ASUS p5KC baord that lasted 8 years and is still fine, so upgrading to another ASUS was a must, Great product and great value from Scan

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent motherboard Not had chance to utilise all the ROG features but handles 2 x SSD, 1 x HDD, 16GB DDR4, i7 4ghz skylake, GTX 960 4GB, water cooler, pcie wireless card, usb 3 and 2 without breaking a sweat. System is running so fast compared to old one that I've had no need to overclock anything, but if I did the bios has all the settings you'd need. Bought matching red components and case illumination to compliment the striking looking board.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Motherboard from ASUS Excellent motherboard, has all the features I need. I see no reason to buy a more expensive mobo than this. Overclocked the CPU to 4.8GHz with air cooling with very little manual tweaking.

Questions & Answers

Supported RAM

Is DDR3 supported by this motherboard, or will I also need to add DDR4 sticks to my wishlist?
Asked by: zGold
Hello, This motherboard only supports DDR4, not DDR3. Regards,

What current are the fan headers rated to?

E.g. could the linked fans (Noctua AF14 iPPC 3000RPM PWM) be powered to full speed on any/all of the headers?
