Overclocking Capability

This X370 motherboard features an integrated a 12 phase digital power delivery system, providing enough voltage to overclock your CPU to its limits and overclocking with this board is pretty efficient.

I was able to push the Ryzen 7 1700 up to 4.0GHz-4.1GHz with the kit’s Noctua NH-U12S and after a couple of runs with Cinebench R15, I can definitely say that this motherboard is capable of extreme overclocking.

Conclusion

Priced at around Php16,850 (DynaQuest PC price), the Asus ROG Crosshair VI Hero is going to be one of the best investments for a high-end enthusiast AMD Ryzen system. You definitely get what you pay for: with the 12 phase digital power delivery system, you can achieve extreme overclocks, and along with that, you will not lose out with aesthetics with ASUS’ own RGB Aura which goes well with the motherboard’s own gunmetal finish to fit any color theme you might have in mind.
