Packaging & Unboxing
If you’ve seen one flagship ASUS ROG product box in the last few years, you’ve seen a red box with black accents. The Maximus XI Hero Wi-Fi flips the table and is mostly black with some red accents with lots of subtle details.
The rear of the box has a picture of the board in the center, all lit up, with specs and features surrounding it.
The ends of the box have the model in the color shifting font and the ROG and ASUS logos.
Opening the box up, We are greeted with a large red ROG eye and the message ‘Welcome to the Republic’.
The Maximus XI Hero Wi-Fi is fully visible under the clear protective cover in its own tray.
Under the motherboard tray, the famous sheet of ROG stickers.
Under this is the three compartments hide all of the included extras and accessories under embossed flaps.
Like most ROG boards, the pile of accessories is pretty immense. You get the user manual, a coaster, and a 20% coupon to CableMod.com good for a slick set of cables or extensions customized to your particular power supply and tastes. The typical SATA cables are here, but you also get all the little bits like M.2 screws, ASUS’s Q-connector, and some RGB extension cables, The Wi-Fi antenna, an HB SLI Bridge, and a ROG case badge inside the drive disk sleeve.
