Powered exclusively by Intel Core X-Series processors, the Prime X299-Deluxe II LGA 2066 ATX Motherboard from ASUS has been engineered for professional content creators and power users who work and play hard. It puts a friendly face on advanced enthusiast controls, enabling you to maximize performance, cooling, and personalization with ease. Maximize connectivity and speed with three M.2 slots, front panel USB 3.1 Gen 2, integrated Wi-Fi and 5G LAN, Intel VROC, and Intel Optane compatibility. 5-Way Optimization with Auto-Tuning and FanXpert 4 automatically tailors overclocking profiles for improved performance and cooling, while ASUS' SafeSlot integrates metal framing for a stronger PCIe slot that can support heavyweight GPUs. This motherboard is designed to fit in ATX sized cases, supports the LGA 2066 socket, the Intel X299 chipset, and is compatible with Windows 10 (64-bit).
The ATX form factor of the Prime X299-Deluxe II can support up to 128GB of DDR4 RAM over eight quad-channel slots, or 16GB per slot at speeds of 4266 (OC), 4200 (OC), 4133 (OC), 4000 (OC), 3600 (OC), 2666, 2400, and 2133 MHz non-ECC unbuffered memory. For storage, there are eight SATA III 6 Gb/s ports and three M.2 Socket 3, with M key, all of which support 2242, 2260, 2280, and 22110 form factors. Two of the slots only support PCIe 3.0 x4, while the other supports both SATA and PCIe 3.0 x4. Also supported is RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10, plus Intel Optane Memory.
There are also a total of two Thunderbolt 3 ports (back panel), four USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports (back panel), two USB 3.1 Gen 1 connectors (mid-board) that support four additional USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports, two USB 2.0 Type-A ports (back panel), and one USB 2.0 connector (mid-board) that supports an additional two USB 2.0 ports. For those looking to expand their system using PCIe, 44-lane CPUs support three PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (x16, x16/x16, x16/x16/x8) slots and two PCIe 3.0/2.0 x1 slots, while 28-lane CPUs support two PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (x16, x16/x8) slots, one PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 slot running in x2 mode, and two PCIe 3.0/2.0 x1 slots.
For delivering sharp, clear graphics, this motherboard supports integrated graphics with two DisplayPort inputs. The Thunderbolt 3 ports support DisplayPort and Thunderbolt video outputs, and the DisplayPort 1.4 standard supports a maximum resolution of 7680 x 3840 at 60 Hz. The Thunderbolt 3 ports can also be used to daisy-chain up to 12 Thunderbolt devices and provide up to 5V / 3A of charging power. Furthermore, users can take advantage of multi-GPU support with NVIDIA Quad-GPU, 3-Way, and 2-Way SLI technology, or AMD Quad-CPU or 3-Way CrossFireX technology.
Using the Realtek S1220A 8-channel HD audio codec, the Prime X299-Deluxe II can support audio with higher fidelity than standard controllers. Audio can be output using the three integrated 3.5mm audio outputs or optical S/PDIF output. ASUS' Prime X299-Deluxe II LGA 2066 ATX Motherboard is equipped with features such as UEFI BIOS, PRO Clock II, Digi+ Power Control, LANGuard, Turbo LAN, Fan Extension Card II, Aura Sync, RGB LED strip headers, and more
Cool to the Core
Power Delivery Enhancements and Dual ProCool Connectors
Cooler by Design
Multiple Temperature Sources
Each header can dynamically reference three thermal sensors, and via FanXpert 4 you can even map the temperature of supported ASUS graphics cards to optimize cooling for GPU- and CPU-intensive tasks.
A dedicated header that can supply over 3A to high-performance PWM or DC water pumps.
A dedicated PWM/DC header for self-contained water-cooling setups.
4-Pin PWM/DC Fan
Every onboard header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.
Bundled Fan Extension Card II
Includes six additional DC or PWM fan headers, plus three thermal-probe headers.
