HWM (Malaysia) - - TEST -

At the end of the day, it was the ASUS ROG Max­imus VIII Ex­treme that im­pressed us the most. It topped the ma­jor­ity of our test bench­marks, and was al­ways among the top two per­form­ers for the tests it didn’t win. Fur­ther­more, its blend of gam­ing- and en­thu­si­ast-ori­ented fea­tures is quite com­pelling, as it man­ages to ap­peal quite suc­cess­fully to both crowds, set­ting it apart from the other boards that of­ten look like they are sac­ri­fic­ing one for the other.

In ad­di­tion to be­ing the best board for over­clock­ing, it also of­fers a range of hard­ware but­tons – the ReTry but­ton, for in­stance – that speak to ASUS’ ef­forts to make the over­clock­ing process as smooth as pos­si­ble. It is this at­ten­tion to de­tail and user ex­pe­ri­ence, com­bined with its stel­lar per­for­mance and at­trac­tive de­sign, that lead us to un­re­servedly de­clare it the win­ner. It will also cost you a pretty penny at RM2,375, but what you get is an ex­ceed­ingly fea­ture-rich board that per­forms great and looks the part as well.
