  1. Same as topic. Wondering if the Hero was worth the extra 50 bucks or so in terms of reliability, features, etc. Reliability is a big factor for me so if you think Hero is a bit more stable for the extra 50$ then please let me know. Thank you!

    P.s. In case you were wondering I am building a gaming/video editing pc for around 1500 bucks

    The Maximus VI Hero is no more stable than the Z87-A. The Maximus is more gamer oriented due to its overclocking features (which the Z87-A has, but not to that extent). If you can get a Z87 Sabertooth, that is probably the best in terms of reliability because it protects the components from dust.

    If you don't have a dedicated audio card then go for the Hero. Otherwise the Z87-A is a very good value motherboard with SLI and CF support.
