Asus’s ROG Maximus XII Hero, while being the cheapest of this segment, more than earns its stripes as a flagship ROG product. Overclocking is super easy, and the VRM heatsink didn’t get much above room temperature, which is great considering we are testing on an open bench with zero airflow over it. We were easily able to get out particular i9-10900K to 5.3Ghz on all cores which were count get stable on a previous test platform. Honestly, Asus has so many overclock settings exposed in the BIOS, and even in software from within Windows, you’ll easily be able to fine-tune your particular chip quite easily and eke out every last MegaHertz if you are so inclined. If you want to just push a button and get a decent boost, you can do that as well.
