No PCI slots. That would mean losing my Auzentech X-Meridian 2G. No buy.

Cant say im a lover of the gold and yellow color scheme, and while the new CPU fan header is nice wouldn't most people just splash the 10-15 on a 4 pin fan ?

I do like the sound of the history and notes feature in the UEFI BIOS though, as it will save having to make notes on what settings you changed last OC attempt when the stress test fails five hours later.

But personally im going to skip Haswell and wait for Skylake.

If you're going for premium fans such as Scythe GT or SilverStone Air Penetrator then very few of these have 4-pin PWM connectors (not the same as 4-pin molex you understand - that's different!). This way you could even hook up a 3-way 3-pin fan adaptor and hook several fans up too.

You can't expect them to hold to PCI for ever and can always use a PCI-Express to PCI riser riser card.


Anyway, I am really looking forward to the 'Hero'... Seems to have all the benefits and expansion slots of higher end boards and hopefully will cost the same as the Gene m-ATX. Sounds like a win, win to me.

It's great to see the motherboard industry has come down to fan controllers to differentiate themselves. We really need some better ones. I was fed up with Gigabyte Z68's fan controller so decided to buy a dedicated piece of hardware.

But a simple toggle in the EFI will do the job, the fancy fan socket just gold plated excessive engineering.

I like the look of the maximus vi hero and the sabertooth gryphon, but the rest look ugly.

Depends what you call premium are you going for low noise, high air flow or good static pressure. Sure some fans don't come in PWM flavors but its not like you cant find one to match what characteristic your looking for.

So the ROG Hero is effectively the Z87's ROG Gene or do you reckon there will be a Gene as well?

I am going to be looking for a ROG m-ATX board for my new build.

TrevDX, you're reading that wrong. They're saying that the Hero (which is clearly ATX sized) will cost about the same as the Gene does today, not replacing the Gene. I would definitely expect a VI Gene for this chipset, due to the popularity of the series.

Yep we can confirm there will be a Gene. Everything else is under wraps!

That's the issue with trying to read quickly whilst at work Also the picture seemed a bit deceptive, still all good now.
