            AMD’s Ryzen motherboards have been introduced as a cost-effective performance motherboard and Asus’s ROG Crosshair VI Hero version is a marvelous example. At the low price of $254.00 (www.Newegg.com), one can have the many benefits of a high-end motherboard without the hefty price tag. Powered by the AMD Ryzen AM4 and 7th generation Athlon processor, this 12.0” x 9.6” motherboard maximizes speed and connectivity with a front panel USB 3.1 and gigabit LAN connections. 5-way optimization using auto-tuning and FaxXpert4 provides the user with automatic overclocking abilities and water-cooling headers.

The board itself looks like it came out of a sci-fi film boasting AURA Sync RGB lighting and 3D-printing friendly mounts. 8-channel HD audio with the exclusive ROG SupremeFX S1220 is also included. A maximum of 64GB of memory is supported and has 4 X 288pin memory slots. An onboard Intel i211AT LAN chipset is featured and has a 10/100/1000Mbps max LAN speed. For the rear panel ports, a single anti-surge RJ45 port is used as well as 2 USB 3.1 ports, 8 USB 3.0 ports, 4 USB 2.0 ports, one optical port and 5 gold-plated audio jacks enabling this board to connect to a wide range of devices.

One of the most significant features of this device is its one-click overclocking and cooling with its 5-way optimization, allowing superb CPU performance, stable power, and quiet and high-flowing fans. This product is built using long-lasting and premium components so the user can experience the benefits of installing this board for a long time. The ability to control the LED effects with Aura (the onboard intuitive lighting control software) makes the appearance of this device customizable and beautiful. This motherboard supports both Nvidia 2-way SLI and AMD CrossFireX technology and includes Extreme Engine Digi+, a MicroFine alloy choke, NexFET MOSFETs, and 10k black metallic capacitors. There are numerous buttons located on this board such as start, reset, safe boot, retry, BIOS flashback, and a clear CMOS.

This product comes with a user guide, support DVD, I/O shield, SLI HB bridge (2-way-M), 2 2-in-1 STA 6Bg/s cables, Q-connector, M.2 screw package, 3D printing mount screws, extension cable, ROG coaster, 10-in-one ROG cable label, and a ROG sticker. While this is a new product, BIOS updates are already rolling out regularly, making this product an excellent choice for any computer builds. While there are multiple models of this type of motherboard with varying performance levels, the Crosshair VI Hero is at the top of the list in its abilities.
