ASUS Z370 Gaming Motherboard - MAXIMUS-X HERO - Intel 8th Gen

Maximus X

ATX Gaming Motherboard - 300 Series

Drawing from a heritage that spans more than a decade, the latest incarnation of the Maximus series augments Intel's Z370 chipset with all the enhancements that enthusiasts crave. Each model sports a unique blend of features to cater to a distinct audience, yet the core ROG DNA ripples through the entire line-up. From overclocking and cooling options to satiate die-hard fanatics, to clean, refined aesthetics that are tastefully accented by RGB lighting, Maximus X-series motherboards bring the octane to your build.

Please note: Z370 Motherboards are ONLY compatible with Intel 8th Gen 'Coffee Lake' CPUs. Although these Intel Z370 Motherboards share the same socket as Intel's 200 & 100 Series Motherboards, they are electrically incompatible & will not work with 7th & 6th Gen Intel CPUs.

Outshine the Competition

A well-tuned enthusiast system deserves a matching aesthetic. 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 the onboard RGB headers.* And it can all be synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-capable ASUS hardware.

Cooler by Design

ROG Maximus X Hero features the most comprehensive cooling controls ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS. Click on the icons below for more.


Multiple Temperature Sources

Each header can be set to monitor and react to three user-configurable thermal sensors, for workload based cooling.

Water Pump+

Water pump+

A dedicated header that can supply over 3A to high-performance PWM or DC water pumps.

Cooling Fans

4-Pin PWM/DC Fan

Every onboard header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.

Extension Card

Bundled fan extension card

Includes three additional DC or PWM fan headers, plus three thermal-probe headers.

Smart Protect

Smart Protection

A dedicated integrated circuit that protects each fan header from over-temperature and over-current.

Water In / Out

Water in/out

Allows for monitoring of temperature at the input/out of any component.

Water Flow

Water Flow

Allows for constant monitoring of the flow rate of entire loop

AIO Pump

AIO Pump

An All-In-One header that supports auto-detection of PWM, DC fans and water pumps.

Overclocking DDR4 RAM

DDR4 Memory

DDR4 OC 4133MHz+

ASUS OptiMem preserves memory signal integrity by routing memory traces and vias to the optimal PCB layer, and our T-Topology layout ensures time-aligned signaling by balancing trace lengths between memory slots. These enhancements lead to more headroom for overclocking and improved stability, allowing memory speeds of DDR4-4133 and beyond with all slots populated.

ASUS Pro Clock II Technology

Pro Clock 2 Technology

OC Design Technology

A dedicated base-clock (BCLK) generator that extends CPU and memory overclocking margins. This custom solution works in tandem with the TPU to enhance voltage and base-clock overclocking control, providing the flexibility to extract every ounce of performance from 8th Generation Intel processors.

5-Way Optimisation

One-click overclock and cooling

ASUS 5-Way Optimisation makes your PC smart. One click takes care of complex tuning, dynamically optimising essential aspects of the system to provide overclocking and cooling profiles that are tailored for your rig. An automated tuning utility that optimises overclocking and cooling profiles for your unique system configuration. Fans stay whisper-quiet with everyday computing, and deliver optimal airflow when the system is crunching through CPU or GPU-intensive tasks. Stress test function helps optimise and overclock for CPU- or memory-centric workloads.

CPU Boost

CPU Performance Boost

Unleash your PC's full performance with the ASUS AI Suite 3 utility. The TurboV Processing Unit (TPU) is the intelligence behind our automated system-tuning utility, offering the ability to fine-tune voltages, monitor system stats, and adjust overclock parameters for optimal performance.

Energy Efficient

All-round Energy Efficiency

With the Energy Processing Unit (EPU) you'll enjoy system-wide power savings. The EPU automatically optimises power consumption and maximises savings with Away mode — a smart setting that creates an extreme energy-saving scenario by shutting down unused I/O controllers.

Flexible Cooling

Flexible Cooling Controls

With Prime Z370-A you have comprehensive control over fans, water pumps, and even all-in-one (AIO) coolers ― all via Fan Xpert 4 or our media-acclaimed UEFI. Whether you're cooling with air or water, Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. There's also Extreme Quiet mode, which reduces all fan speeds to below the default minimum — keeping your system whisper-quiet when performing light tasks.

Power Control

Precise Digital Power Control

Digi+ delivers real-time control over voltage droop, switching frequency and power-efficiency settings, allowing you to fine-tune CPU voltage regulation for ultimate stability and performance.


App specific Optimisation

Whether you're a professional designer or hardcore gamer, you'll feel the benefit of the ASUS-exclusive Turbo App. This intuitive tool allows you to define CPU overclocking, apply fan profiles, prioritise network data and optimise audio settings at app level ― so your Prime Z370-A system is perfectly optimised for whatever you're doing.

Ultrafast M.2 Connectivity

m.2 SSD

Speed up with onboard M.2 up to 32Gbps

Dual PCIe 3.0 x4 M.2 slots provide NVMe SSD RAID support for an incredible performance boost. Create a RAID configuration with up to three PCIe 3.0 storage devices via two M.2 slots and a PCIe x16 slot to enjoy the world's fastest data-transfer speeds. 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 minimises 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.

Intel® Optane™ Memory

Intel Optane Ready

Advanced performance with the Optane Cache Memory

Intel Optane™ is a revolutionary non-volatile memory technology supported by Prime Z370-A. Intel Optane memory modules accelerate attached storage to reduce boot and load times, so everything feels faster and more responsive.
