ASUS ROG MAXIMUS X HERO overview

  • 1Description

The Republic of Gamers Maximus X Hero LGA 1151 Z370 ATX Motherboard from Asus is built on the Intel Z370 chipset and supports 8th generation Intel Core processors. Four DDR4 RAM slots support up to 64GB at speeds of up to 4133 MHz when overclocked. For storage, this motherboard has six SATA III ports and two M.2 slots for a variety of drive configurations. After installing an Intel CPU with integrated graphics, it can deliver 4K visuals through its HDMI and DisplayPort outputs. For more graphical processing power, there are three PCIe 3.0 x16 and three PCIe 3.0 x1 slots to handle GPUs and other PCIe cards. Connect to the Internet via the Gigabit Ethernet jack and plug your peripherals into its multiple USB ports, one of which features the reversible USB Type-C interface. Hardware aside, this motherboard is packed with plenty of software additions to help you monitor, manage, and customize your build's performance and aesthetics.

Intel Z370 Chipset
The Intel Z370 is a single-chipset design that supports 8th-generation Intel Core LGA1151 processors. It provides improved performance by utilizing serial point-to-point links, allowing increased bandwidth and stability. Additionally, the Z370 provides a maximum of ten USB 3.0 ports, six SATA 6 Gb/s ports, and 32 Gb/s M.2 and PCIe 3.0 lane speed support, for faster data retrieval. Intel Z370 also supports integrated-graphics.
LGA1151 Core Processors
This motherboard supports 8th Generation Intel Core processors in the LGA1151 package. With integrated graphics, memory, and PCI Express controllers, it supports onboard graphics output with dedicated chipsets, dual-channel (4-DIMM) DDR4 memory, and 16 PCI Express 3.0/2.0 lanes.
Aura Sync
ASUS Aura Sync offers full RGB control with a variety of functional presets for the built-in RGB LEDs as well as the LED strips connected to onboard RGB headers. It provides Static, Breathing, Strobing, Rainbow, Color Cycle, Comet, Flash & Dash, Wave, Glowing Yo-Yo, Starry Night, Music, and CPU temperature effects. ROG Maximus X Hero features a pair of onboard 5050 RGB headers and an addressable header to support lighting strips, fans, coolers, and cases.
Additional RGB Lighting
Located at the bottom of the Maximus X Hero are a pair on 5050 RGB headers and a pair of addressable headers that can be used to connect compatible lighting strips, fans, cooler, and more.
3D Mount
The Maximus X Hero supports 3D accessories so you can install things like a cable cover or a M.2 fan holder.
M.2 Support
The Maximus X Hero features a stylish, angular M.2 heatsink to keep your SSD cool and prevent throttling. Moreover, built-in sensors keep track of temperatures for instant monitoring. With two PCIe Gen3 M.2 slots, you'll be able to transfer files at up to 32 Gb/s.
Cooler by Design
  • Multiple temperature sensors
  • Dedicated water pump header that can supply over 3A
  • 4-pin PWM/DC fan headers
  • Fan extension header
  • Dedicated integrated over-temperature and over-current protection
  • Water in/out temperature monitoring
  • Water flow monitoring
  • Dedicated PWM/DC header for AIO units
DDR4 Overclocking
ASUS OptiMem preserves memory signal integrity by routing memory traces to an optimal PCB layer, and a T-Topology layout ensures time-aligned signals by balancing trace lengths between memory slots. These enhancements offer more overclocking headroom and stability, allowing memory speeds of DDR4-4133 and higher with all slots populated.
5-Way Optimization
With one click, ASUS 5-Way Optimization dynamically optimizes essential aspects of the system, providing overclocking and cooling profiles that are tailored for performance.

  • TurboV Processing Unit (TPU) offers the ability to fine-tune voltages, monitor system stats, and adjust overclock parameters for optimal performance
  • EPU automatically optimizes power consumption and maximizes savings with Away mode
  • Fan Xpert 4 grants comprehensive control over fans and all-in-one (AIO) liquid coolers
  • Digi+ delivers real-time control over voltage droop, switching frequency, and power -efficiency settings, allowing you to fine-tune CPU voltage regulation
  • Turbo App allows you to define CPU overclocking, apply fan profiles, prioritize network data and optimize audio settings
SupremeFX
ROG's SupremeFX audio technology delivers a 113dB signal-to-noise ratio on the line-in connection. There's also a low-dropout regulator for clean power delivery to the SupremeFX S1220 codec. Additionally, an ESS Sabre Hi-Fi ES9023P digital-to-analog converter and OPA1688 op-amp are on board.
Software Features
  • GameFirst IV optimizes network traffic for fast, lag-free online gaming
  • Overwolf lets you browse the Internet, email, IM, and stream or record gameplay
  • ROG Clone Drive is a cloning solution that quickly and efficiently replicates hard drives or SSDs
  • RAMCache II caches an entire storage device so that favorite games and apps launch quickly
  • Keybot II lets you record macros directly from the keyboard, quickly switch profiles, enable special functions, and enhance S5 mode
