Do you guys think this would work fine out of the box with my onboard audio? I have a ASUS ROG MAXIMUS VII HERO motherboard. I already know that it would be better if I'm getting an AMP/DAC, so I'm planning to get it when I get a better price, but prices are killing me here in Norway. Just wondering if it should be alright out of the box for the moment.

You will be fine with the ASUS ROG series. I use it and it drives these very well, unlike the HD600's, which it struggles to feed.

Before I had a dedicated amp and DAC I used the onboard audio from my ASUS ROG MAXIMUS FORMULA VI and I used 6xx through that it was fine, if you can, I'd recommend connecting directly to the mother board (rear connections), whenever I connected to the front audio ports there was just something about the sound that was different. I'm guessing the cable that was run through the case for the front audio was picking up interference from inside the case but your mileage may vary so just test it out for yourself

That's a very plausible assumption. Some front audio cables aren't properly shielded so they do tend to pick up electrical signals which can add unwanted sounds and what not to your audio. Of course, some rear io ports aren't properly shielded or designed causing signals and noise to leak through, but that's less likely depending on the company.
