ASUS’s Republic of Gamers (ROG) “Maximus” motherboards are always a top choice for overclocking and enthusiasts. They are pretty much the cream of the crop when it comes to high-end motherboards and have every feature you could think of whether you are a gamer, overclocker, or just a normal PC enthusiast. Today we have the ASUS ROG Maximus XII Hero (Wi-Fi) motherboard on the test bench. The “Hero” boards are great as they give you quite a lot of value, but aren’t as expensive as the “Extreme” boards. The ROG Maximus XII Hero (Wi-Fi) features a 14+2 power phase design, memory support up to 4800 MHz, 5g Ethernet, USB 3.2 gen 2, 802.11ax WiFi, SupremeFX audio, three M.2 slots, and of course that ASUS style and RGB lighting! Let’s see what this board is all about!
The ROG Maximus XII Hero comes in ASUS’s ROG motherboard box, which is one of my favorites. On the front it lets us know we do have the ROG Maximus XII Hero and many of the features are listed in the bottom right corner.
Flipping over to the back we have a full overview of the board and details on all of the different connections and features.
