Our Intel Core i9-11900K struggles with stability once we exceed 5GHz on all cores, but Hero wasn’t able to achieve 5GHz across all cores – instead, we had to settle for 4.9GHz with substantial CPU voltage of 1.39v.

ROG motherboards are never on the cheap side, so as expected, Hero sits at GBP £459 | USD $500 | AUD $800. This marks Hero as one of the more expensive models available. Is it worth it? From a performance standpoint, no. But, if you require the advanced features/ports and favour the design, then it is something to consider.
