Power Delivery Enhancements

POWER DELIVERY ENHANCEMENTS Modern CPU architectures up the ante for motherboard power design by transitioning from deep power saving modes to full load almost instantaneously. Our latest VRM architecture rises to the challenge by utilizing teamed power stages to rapidly swing current, while maintaining exemplary thermal performance.

1. 8-pin ProCool II power connector Ensures a snug and reliable connection to the EPS 12V power lines.

2. 70A
Power Stage
The VRM has 16 power stages, each rated to handle 70 amps

3.MicroFine
Alloy Chokes
Each Power stage is accompanied by a high-permeability alloy-core choke rated to handle 45 amps.

4. 10K Black
Metallic Capacitors
Input and output filtering is provided by solid-polymer capacitors rated to last thousands of hours at high operating temperatures.

Cooler by Design

COMPREHENSIVE COOLING ZONEEnjoy comprehensive control over fans and water pumps, via either Fan Expert 4 or our UEFI. Whether you're cooling with air or water, Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. There's also an Extreme Quiet mode, which reduces all fan speeds to below the default minimum — keeping your system whisper-quiet when performing light tasks.

Thermometer sensors

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.

Fan detectors and headers

4-pin PWM/DC Fan Every onboard header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.

 bundled extension card

AIO Pump A dedicated PWM/DC header for self-contained water-cooling setups.

Unprecedented Thermal Dominance

Heatsinks

1. VRM
Heatsink
A VRM heatsink is placed on the MOSFETs and chokes, and the embedded heatpipe connects to the aluminum I/O cover.

2. Large Diameter Heatpipe The U-shaped design provides rapid and even heat transfer from the VRM to the extended VRM heatsink.?

3. M.2 HeatsinkThe M.2 heatsink keeps the M.2 SSD at the optimum operating temperature for consistent performance and reliability.

4.High-conductivity
thermal pad
The high-quality thermal pad improves overall heat transfer from the system by bridging the heat generated by the power stages to the heatsink.

5. Extended
VRM heatsink
The extended heatsink at the end of heatpipe increases thermal mass to offset the additional heat generated by high power consumption.

6. Chipset
heatsink
A dedicated chipset heatsink draws heat away to maintain optimum operating temperatures.?

Push your Memory to Higher Frequencies

Optimem 3

OPTIMEM IIIBoasting proprietary memory trace layout tweaks that improve signal integrity and mitigate noise, ASUS OptiMem III is more compatible with 3600 MHz+ memory kits, allowing them to run at higher frequencies. You can opt to optimize memory for high frequency settings, or low latency settings. With higher capacity memory kits, OptiMem III enables you to run at maximum frequency, whereas other motherboards will trade off frequency for capacity. Stack Maximus XII Hero with your favorite modules and maximize throughput of the new 10th Generation Intel® Core™ Comet Lake-S processor for applications that demand massive bandwidth.

Support for up to Three M.2 Drives

M.2 Support

Maximus compatibilityMaximus XI Hero comes equipped with three M.2 slots to let you take full advantage of Intel IRST and NVMe RAID for ultimate SSD storage speeds. The drives can be found under the aluminum heatsink covers. Integrated PCIe support ensures compatibility with the latest NVMe SSDs to enable ultrafast transfer speeds.

The Future of Home-Networking

Networking

1. Wi-Fi 6 (AX201) Onboard Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) supports ultrafast network speeds, improved capacity and better performance in dense Wi-Fi environments, providing exceptional online gaming experiences.

2. Marvell® 5Gbps Ethernet Designed to meet the demanding requirements of power users and content creators, 10 Gbps onboard Ethernet provides a new level of home networking. With up to 10X the bandwidth of standard gigabit Ethernet, you'll enjoy streaming uncompressed 4K UHD videos, and backups and file transfers that are faster than ever before.

3. Intel® 1Gbps Ethernet The Hero features Intel® Gigabit Ethernet for faster, smoother gaming. Intel Ethernet controllers have a natural synergy with their processors and chipsets, reducing CPU overhead and offering exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput, so there's more power for games and other tasks..

5-Way Optimization

Overclocking Intelligence Take care of complex tuning with just one click. ASUS 5-Way Optimization is a system-wide tuning utility that overclocks the processor and tunes fan speeds to ensure the best balance between cooling and acoustics. The automated CPU tuning feature of 5-Way Optimization leverages the same on-board intelligence as AI Overclocking, but goes further by running a Prime95 based stress test to deliver a result that's well-tuned from the beginning.

Fan Xpert 4

Flexible Cooling Controls With the ROG MAXIMUS 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.

TPU Insight

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.

EPU Guidance

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.

Turbo App

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.

DIGI+POWER CONTROL

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.

This is Advanced Audio
