EK Water Blocks, known all around the world for providing premium quality cooling gear, has recently made an introduction of its EK-SB ASUS M6G. The Ljubljana based manufacturer has rolled out its new water block which will assist the water cooling for the Intel Z87 Express PCH which is the Periphery Hub Controller and are going to be featured on the ASUS Maximus VI Gene and Hero 4th generation Intel Core series motherboards.
For quite a while now ASUS’s Republic of Gamers (ROG) motherboards have been the top of the line motherboards which offer very high-end and unique hardware and software features. For this reason they are a top choice of many enthusiasts and gamers. The one thing that keeps these boards out of the hands of many people is the price tag. The top of the line Maximus VI Extreme is currently selling for $399.99, which is quite a lot to just pay for a motherboard. ASUS knows that and wanted to give people the chance to get their hands on a Republic of Gamers board. That is where the Maximus VI Hero comes in, at just $229.99 it will still give you many of the same ROG features without some of the more “Extreme” ones that you may not use. This motherboard is designed for Intel’s latest 4th generation Haswell Core processors using the LGA1150 socket. Read on as we take this motherboard for a spin and see what all it has to offer.
