ASUS X570 ROG Crosshair VIII Hero Motherboard
Equipped to Handle the new AMD Ryzen 3rd Gen CPUSIntroducing the new ASUS X570 ROG Crosshair VIII Hero Motherboard, a motherboard built and designed for the brand new 3rd Generation AMD Ryzen AM4 processors. The board includes integrated RGB lighting effects and with ASUS AURA SYNC you can link all your ASUS devices together and get a unified effect across your whole rig. The Crosshair VIII Hero provides M.2 storage solutions with it's Dual PCIe 4.0 M.2 Slot that supports up to two PCIe 4.0 storage devices to enjoy the fastest data-transfer speeds on the 3rd Generation AMD Ryzen platform. The inclusion of heatsinks helps keep speeds up by cooling the M.2 slots and letting them run at optimal temperature by dissipating heat away from key components.

Light Up your Rig with ASUS AURA SYNC
Control your Effects with one ASUS interfaceGear up with ROG components, from graphics and monitors, to mice and keyboards, and up your game with complementary aesthetics, control and compatibility. The ROG ecosystem is more extensive than any competing brand, so enjoy greater choice as your system expands. From a single intuitive interface, Armoury Crate lets you easily customise RGB lighting and effects for every compatible device in your arsenal and synchronise them with Aura Sync for uni?ed system lighting effects.
Superfast Dual PCIe 4.0 M.2 Storage Support
UNTHROTTLED TRANSFER SPEED Dual PCIe 4.0 M.2 Slot support up to 22110 and provide NVMe SSD RAID support for an incredible performance boost. Create a RAID configuration with up to two PCIe 4.0 storage devices to enjoy the fastest data-transfer speeds on the 3rd generation AMD Ryzen platform.
Incredible Cooling for Maximum Performance
VRM HeatsinkConnects to the IO heatsink via an embedded heat-pipe, increasing mass and surface area. Effectively cooling your motherboard as it takes heat away from the VRMs.
M.2 HeatsinkROG Crosshair VIII Hero is equipped with a stylish M.2 heatsink that keeps your SSD cool. By efficiently dissipating heat away from the M.2 area, it minimises the possibility of the performance-sapping throttling that can happen when drives become too warm.
Active PCH HeatsinkWith double the bandwidth via PCIe 4.0, the X570 platform poses a greater thermal challenge than its X470 predecessor. The PCH heatsink has a dedicated fan to efficiently combat temperature-induced throttling that can slow performance during transfer.

Ultimate Cooling Performance with ASUS ROG
Multiple Temperature Sources Each header can be set to monitor and react to three user-configurable thermal sensors for workload-based cooling. And all settings can be easily managed by Fan Xpert 4 or UEFI.
Water Pump+ A dedicated header that can supply over 3A to high-performance PWM or DC water pumps.
4-Pin PWM/DC Fan Every onboard header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.
Smart Protection A dedicated circuit protects each fan header from over-temperature and over-current.
Rog Water-Cooling Zone Water In/Out and water-flow headers feed status information straight into the AI Suite utility, so you can keep track of coolant temperatures and the flow rate of the entire loop to ensure the best cooling performance.
Control Your Rig With Detailed Tuning Software
Flexible Cooling Controls With the ROG Series you have comprehensive control over fans via Fan Xpert 4 or the media-acclaimed UEFI. Whether you are cooling with air or water, Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. Extreme Quiet mode reduces all fan speeds to below the default minimum assuring your system stays whisper-quiet when performing light tasks.
CPU Performance Boost Unleash your PC’s full performance with the ASUS AI Suite 3 utility. The TurboV Processing Unit (TPU) is the intelligence behind our automated system-tuning utility, offering the ability to fine-tune voltages, monitor system stats, and adjust overclock parameters for optimal performance.
All-round Energy Efficiency The Energy Processing Unit (EPU) automatically amplifies power consumption and maximises savings with Away mode. The smart setting that produces an extreme energy-saving setup by shutting down unused I/O controllers, with the EPU you will appreciate system-wide power reserves.
Optimization for gamers and professionals Whether you're a professional designer or hardcore gamer, you'll feel the benefit of the ASUS-exclusive Turbo App every day. This intuitive tool allows you to define CPU overclocking, apply fan profiles, prioritize network data and optimize audio settings at app level, meaning your ROG system is perfectly optimized for what you're doing.
Digital Power Controls The Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) delivers real-time control over voltage droop, switching frequency and power-efficiency settings, allowing you to fine-tune CPU voltage regulation for ultimate stability and performance.

Comments, Questions & Reviews:
Robust and efficent with only a few downside. by SLaird
I purchased this board during the release period of the ryzen 300 chips to be paired with a 3900x. Overall the board has preformed excellently with the only issues being very minor. I've had the memory on board overclocked and the board has handled it very well, with the easy to use CMOS clear feature being very handy in an emergency though typically the board is quite graceful about entering emergency mode if the bios settings are preventing a stable boot. The options available in the bios is fair expansive though there are a few odd behaviours present such as certain voltages such as the half voltage for memory or soc voltage needing to be within certain voltage steps. Otherwise the bios is a clean experience and robust enough for ample tweaking. As for features on board, it has plenty of SATA ports and 2 m.2 connectors which is ample for my use case and not necessarily something other boards have even at this price point. The only deficiency is the lack of a second 3.0 USB header for front panel connections, though the rear i/o has plenty of USB 3.0 ports. Overall I have had zero issues with the board, and it handles the 3900x like a champ.29 of 50 people rated this review as helpful
Great motherboard by Bigminimus
This motherboard is feature rich and runs great with my 3900x. The chipset fan is mostly silent. Overall great board!30 of 58 people rated this review as helpful
