Asus Maximus IX Hero review – great performer

I’ve started Asus Z270 reviews with Strix Z270G and Maximus IX Formula, so I decided to continue with the middle man in this hierarchy: Maximus IX Hero. However, stay tuned for other launched Asus Z270 boards reviews. They are already on my desk.

It is part of the ROG family and features the capabilities that Asus implemented in the series.
