The ASUS Maximus VI Hero retail packaging is pretty traditional of the Republic of Gamers motherboards and dons the red package with white lettering on the front with minimal marketing text.
Opening up the front cover of the Maximus VI Hero packaging gives us our first glance at the Hero Intel Z87 motherboard.
The front cover spares no expense on the marketing text. Here we can find information on the SupremeFX audio, GameFirst II, Intel Ethernet, RAMDisk, and the Extreme Engine Digi +III.
The back of the retail packaging features the layout of the rear I/O panel as well as the specifications of the Maximus VI Hero motherboard.
Once we begin to peel back the cardboard packaging we can see that the ASUS Maximus VI Hero is securely packed within. This should help protect the board during the hazards of shipping.
The bundle for the ASUS Maximus VI Hero may not be as extensive as some of the other ROG motherboards we have looked at in the past, but it will get the job done. Up top we can see that we have six SATA III cables. In the lower compartment there is an NVIDIA SLI Bridge, ASUS Q-Connect adapters, SATA Cable labels, Manual, Driver disc, I/O Shield, and hidden from view there is a ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign for your door knob.
