ASUS ROG Z390 Maximus XI Formula Review

3D Mark

We're always saying about how 3D Mark is far more GPU limited than anything else and a more sturdy motherboard wont get you over the hump. However, the Z390 is a perfect platform on which to build your eye candy efforts.

Honestly, since the mockups suggest WAY more lighting between the PCI-Slots, I'm kinda disappointed with the looks. Is that because of the camera handling the lighting or is all that silver area really not illuminated although that's suggested by the first pictures?Quote

Couldn't find any answer in the review itself, but does anyone know if this board is compatible with both i9 9900K and i7 8700K?... And/or does it require a BIOS in order to use the latter?.

As from my understand based on reviews, it works with either CPU, without an BIOS update.Quote

All Z390's are backward compatible with 8 series cpu and all new Z390 chipset features are supported.

I remember coming here a long time ago looking at reviews and getting some pretty good info on overclocking modding etc but nowadays all TTL seems intrested in is modding his cars... The depth of the reviews are going downhill....Quote

Ahh cool, thanks for the info. Much appreciated!

So just to be clear; No BIOS needed? Ie, if you’ve got an 8700K and then decides to get an 9900K down the line. I assume it’s just dropping it into the motherboard and ofd you go? It will work just fine?...Quote

Why do you ask such easy questions you already know the answer to on how to find out?

Just go to the Asus website, check cpu support list. took me 10 seconds to find.

The CPUs are supported since the Sept 29/2018 BIOS update. It's impossible to know which board you will get. it may or may not have at least that version of the BIOS. You should already be updating the BIOS as soon as you buy any motherboard anyway. It's a critical step in any motherboard change. With ASUS boards you don't need a CPU in to update the BIOS last I checked. So even if it is an older BIOS then you will still be able to update it. If not then borrow someone's older CPU.Quote
