Harness the power of Intel 11th Gen processors with the ROG MAXIMUS XIII HERO ATX LGA 1200 Gaming Motherboard from ASUS. This user-friendly board works seamlessly with Intel Core 11th Gen processors, giving you the capabilities to utilize PCIe 4.0 functionality for expansion slots as well as M.2 storage interfaces. Increased speeds, enhanced thermal solutions, and the signature ASUS ROG motif makes this motherboard ideal for anyone looking for performance and pizzazz.

The MAXIMUS XIII HERO uses the Z590 chipset to lay the foundation for your components. The LGA 1200 socket allows you to install various Intel processors, with 11th Gen CPUs unlocking the enhanced functionality of PCIe 4.0 protocols. Three PCIe x16 slots and one PCIe x1 slot allow you to equip your rig with various graphics and utility cards. Install an array of storage drives with six SATA III connectors and four M.2 slots, enhancing your system performance and reducing loading times. Equip various memory modules up to 5333 MHz with four dual-channel DDR4 RAM slots for efficient multitasking. Additionally, you can experience enhanced external data transfer speeds with Thunderbolt 4 technology.

Intel 11th Gen Processors

Compatible with Intel's Core 11th Gen CPUs, the MAXIMUS XIII HERO allows you to harness the power of PCIe 4.0 speeds for your expansion and M.2 storage inputs. This gives you enhanced speeds ideal for gaming and resource-demanding applications. The LGA 1200 socket is compatible with Intel Core 10th Gen, Pentium Gold, and Celeron processors, giving you basic functionality needed to perform everyday tasks.

Massive Connectivity

The MAXIMUS XIII HERO features massive connectivity options, giving you six USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A ports for enhanced data transfer speeds. Dual Thunderbolt 4 ports allow you to expand your connectivity, giving you up to 40 Gb/s speeds and daisy-chain capabilities for external devices. Two USB 2.0 ports are available for peripherals such as keyboards and mice. USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 front-panel headers give you easy access to data transfer speeds up to 20 Gb/s, suitable for a variety of external devices and fast charging mobile devices. Connect to your network wirelessly with on-board Wi-Fi 6E (802.11ax) or use the dual 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet ports to increase network speeds and use teaming functionality.

Thermal Solutions

Whether you prefer liquid AIO or fan-based coolers, the MAXIMUS XIII HERO has you covered with a variety of thermal solutions suitable for your high-end components. Large VRM, chipset, and M.2 heatsinks dissipate heat efficiently away from the on-board components, while 2 oz copper layers and L-shaped heatpipes draw heat away from critical components. High-conductivity thermal pads and M.2 backplates ensure peak performance for your components while reducing heat build-up. Multiple temperature sources are located around the board for easy monitoring. Additional fan and pump headers are located around the board, allowing you to utilize various air and liquid coolers.

DIY Friendly

Whether you are a new or seasoned builder, the MAXIMUS XIII HERO gives you an array of useful features that makes installation and troubleshooting easier. ESD Guards provide greater electrostatic protection for USB, audio, and LAN ports. Truevolt USB maintains power to the USB ports, minimizing power fluctuations for minimal data loss. Dual PCIe SafeSlots enable you to install heavier graphics and utility cards by reinforcing the PCIe slot, keeping it from bending and offering greater shearing resistance. FlexKey allows you to redefine the role of the chassis reset button to control lighting and boot settings. ASUS HYDRANODE circuit utilizes powerline communication protocol to control up to three daisy chained fans for enhanced cooling capabilities. Four Q-DIMM RAM slots make installation and securing RAM modules easier. Q-Connector organizes the front-panel connectors, providing a neater setup. A Q-Code LED readout displays error codes to assist with troubleshooting your rig.

Total Gaming Immersion

The MAXIMUS XIII HERO is equipped with a variety of addons that allow you to customize your rig with an array of lighting effects and colors. Integrated Aura lighting is built into the I/O and chipset heatsinks, while multiple RGB headers can utilize Gen 2 Addressable lighting strips for added style. The Armoury Crate and AURA Sync software allow you to easily unify your peripherals for a unique personal style that stands out.

Gaming Audio

With Sonic Studio III and DTS Sound Unbound, you can immerse yourself in a wide range of games with realistic virtual 3D audio, putting you right in the middle of the action. Set app-specific profiles that adjust when you swap from listening to media to playing games. The Sonic Studio virtual mixer allows you to adjust sound settings with ease and even balance microphone input streams.
