A well-tuned enthusiast system deserves a matching aesthetic. ASUS Aura offers full RGB lighting control with a variety of functional presets for the built-in RGB LEDs as well as strips connected to the onboard RGB headers.
RGB lighting perfected
ROG Maximus X Hero features a duo of onboard 5050 RGB headers and an addressable header that can be connected to compatible lighting strips, fans, coolers, and PC cases, creating a great world of illumination possibilities
Exclusive 3D Mount for easy installation
Dedicated 3D Mount on the motherboard makes fitting 3D-printed parts easy. Using the same screws as M.2 drives and standard motherboard mounting holes, you can easily add nameplates, cable covers, or an M.2 fan holder in a matter of moments.
ROG Maximus X Hero is equipped with a stylish, angular M.2 heatsink that keeps your SSD cool. By efficiently dissipating heat away from the M.2 area, ROG Maximus X Hero minimizes the possibility of the performance-sapping throttling that can happen when drives become too warm. The heatsink's angular design adds an eye-catching touch to any build, while the T-sensor detects temperatures in the vital M.2 area for instant monitoring.
Featuring the advanced Intel Ethernet for faster, smoother gaming. Intel Ethernet controllers have a natural synergy with their CPUs and chipsets, reducing processor overhead and offering exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput, so there's more power for games and other tasks.
Let your SSD scream at top speed
With x4 PCI Express 3.0/2.0 bandwidth, M.2 supports up to 32 Gbit/s data-transfer speeds. It is the perfect choice for an operating system or application drive, making your whole PC or professional apps work as fast as possible.
One click takes care of all that complex tuning. ASUS 5-Way Optimization makes your PC smart. It dynamically optimizes essential aspects of the system, providing overclocking and cooling profiles that are tailored for your rig.
ROG's awesome SupremeFX audio technology has leveled up, delivering an exceptional 113 dB signal-to-noise ratio on the line-in connection! The low-dropout regulator for cleaner power delivery was added to the SupremeFX S1220 codec, an ESS Sabre Hi-Fi ES9023P digital-to-analog converter for superior front-panel output, and a Texas Instruments RC4850 op-amp for high gain with low distortion - which all adds up to audio that envelops you as never before.
Overwolf is a clever, unobtrusive overlay that keeps you in the game and allows you to browse the web, email, IM, stream or record while you play. The overlay features color-matched ROG skins that show you're part of an elite pack.
