Designed for gaming enthusiasts looking to take their experience to the next level, the robust ASUS ROG MAXIMUS Z790 HERO ATX LGA 1700 Motherboard drives performance with an enhanced electrical layout, PCIe 5.0 technology, and vast connectivity options for gaming peripherals.

At the heart of the ROG MAXIMUS Z790 HERO is an LGA 1700 socket and Z790 chipset, allowing you to leverage a wide range of 12th and 13th Gen Intel processors. Four DDR5 Dual-Channel RAM slots allow you to install up to 128GB of memory with speeds up to 7200 MHz when overclocked, providing you with increased multitasking and rendering capabilities. Three M.2 PCIe and six SATA III storage interfaces allow you to combine an array of storage drives to build a massive gaming library. Two additional M.2 slots can be installed using the ROG Hyper expansion card for even greater storage for games and digital assets. Two PCIe 5.0 x16 slots are available for resource-demanding graphics cards while a PCIe 4.0 x16 (in x4 mode) slot supports a wide range of utility cards. Between the back panel and internal headers, you get access to several USB 3.2 Gen 1, Gen 2, and Gen 2x2 ports and interfaces, offering plenty of support for peripherals such as mice, keyboards, and controllers as well as resource-demanding devices like external drives. Wireless devices can utilize Bluetooth 5.2 technology for a reliable cable-free experience. Connect to your wireless network with Wi-Fi 6E (802.11ax) or use the integrated 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet port if you prefer a wired connection. Immerse yourself deeper into your favorite games with integrated SupremeFX 7.1-channel audio backed by an ESS ES9218 QUAD DAC, giving you realistic sounding audio.

AI Equipped
Leveraging Artificial Intelligence, the ROG MAXIMUS Z790 HERO can boost performance with automatic AI overclocking and cooling, enhancing your games and productivity without compromising thermal capabilities. AI noise cancellation is an audio-focused utility used to reduce background sound, ensuring others can hear you clearer when engaging in team-focused titles or delivering presentations remotely. GameFirst VI is an AI networking tool that prioritizes and optimizes your network connection for smoother online gameplay, essential for competitive online titles.
Enhanced Power Solution
Equipped with 20+1 90A power stages with ProCool II connectors, alloy chokes, and durable capacitors, the ROG MAXIMUS Z790 HERO delivers stable power throughout the entire motherboard, maintaining electrical volume whether you are performing simple tasks or operating at full power during resource-demanding processes.
Comprehensive Cooling
To ensure your system remains cool under heavy loads, the ROG MAXIMUS Z790 HERO motherboard incorporates a large VRM heatsink for capacitors and chokes as well as integrated double-sided M.2 heatsinks and a unique PCH fanless heatsink, delivering better thermal performance while preventing throttling. Hybrid fan headers and Fan Xpert 4 software control fans and liquid pump elements for enhanced cooling that can be modified to your preference.
Connectivity
Between the backplate and the internal headers, the ROG MAXIMUS Z790 HERO offers robust connectivity suitable for your peripherals. USB-A and USB-C 3.2 Gen 1 and Gen 2 ports deliver up to 5 and 10 Gb/s data transfer speeds, respectively, suitable for webcams, mics, and external storage drives. Two Thunderbolt 4 ports give you up to 40 Gb/s data transfer speed for resource-demanding devices such as storage arrays and audio interfaces along with support for Power Delivery technologies.
7.1-Channel Audio
Immerse yourself in your favorite games with high-fidelity audio backed by the ROG SupremeFX 7.1-channel ALC4080 codec and ESS ES9218 QUAD DAC amplifier, working together to drive clear and crisp audio. Gold-plated audio jacks and premium capacitors optimize audio conductivity for a reliable signal, preventing static and other interference.
Additional Enhancements
Several on-board enhancements help with the installation process while also providing additional support for the long-term with SafeDIMM RAM seating, PCIe 5.0 Safeslot, Q-LED, Q-Code, M.2 Q-Latch, CPU socket lever protector, and a pre-mounted I/O shield. Additionally, BIOS FlashBack, Clear CMOS, and FlexKey offers support on a software level by allowing you to easily update the BIOS without assembling your entire system, reset the CMOS, and assign different applications to your PC case's reset button, respectively.
