Cooler by Design

COMPREHENSIVE COOLING ZONEROG Maximus XI Hero features the most comprehensive cooling controls ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS.

Multiple temperature sources Each header can be set to monitor and react to three user-configurable thermal sensors, for workload based cooling. All easily managed by Fan Xpert 4 or UEFI.

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

4-pin PWM/DC fan Every onboard header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.
*W_PUMP+ and AIO PUMP are also PWM/DC controllable.

Fan Extension Header Allows expansion of three additional DC or PWM fan headers, plus three thermal-probe headers.

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

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

Water flow Allows for constant monitoring of the flow rate of entire loop.

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

Tune it Your Way with AI Overclocking

AI Overclocking

Intelligent Control ASUS AI Overclocking makes automatic tuning faster and smarter than ever before. Available in Windows or directly through the UEFI, it profiles the CPU and cooling to predict the optimal configuration for each individual system. ASUS have created a proprietary algorithm that evaluates the capabilities of your CPU. The onboard intelligence also watches system vitals like temperatures, fan speeds, and power draw to gauge cooling performance.

5-Way Optimization

Overclocking Intelligence Take care of complex tuning with just one click. ASUS 5-Way Optimization is a system-wide tuning utility that overclocks the processor and tunes fan speeds to ensure the best balance between cooling and acoustics. The automated CPU tuning feature of 5-Way Optimization leverages the same on-board intelligence as AI Overclocking, but goes further by running a Prime95 based stress test to deliver a result that's well-tuned from the beginning.

Fan Xpert 4

Flexible Cooling Controls With the ROG MAXIMUS Series you have comprehensive control over fans via Fan Xpert 4 or the media-acclaimed UEFI. Whether you are cooling with air or water, Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. Extreme Quiet mode reduces all fan speeds to below the default minimum assuring your system stays whisper-quiet when performing light tasks.

TPU Insight

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.

EPU Guidance

All-round Energy Efficiency The Energy Processing Unit (EPU) automatically amplifies power consumption and maximises savings with Away mode. The smart setting that produces an extreme energy-saving setup by shutting down unused I/O controllers, with the EPU you will appreciate system-wide power reserves.

Turbo App

Optimization for gamers and professionals Whether you're a professional designer or hardcore gamer, you'll feel the benefit of the ASUS-exclusive Turbo App every day. This intuitive tool allows you to define CPU overclocking, apply fan profiles, prioritize network data and optimize audio settings at app level, meaning your ROG system is perfectly optimized for what you're doing.

DIGI+POWER CONTROL

Digital Power Controls The Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) 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.

Excellent Memory Capabilities

ASUS maximus z390 memory connectivity

Integrated OptiMem II technology Whether you're gunning for high memory frequencies or tuning timings for the lowest latency, ROG Maximus XI Hero provides the tools you need to exploit the Coffee Lake architecture's full potential: carefully optimized trace pathways maintain signal integrity, and the acclaimed ROG firmware offers the necessary tweaks to ensure stability while maximizing memory performance. Load up with a high-density memory kit for heavy multitasking, or run a focused setup that delivers the bandwidth your favorite games and applications need. Any way you stack it, the Hero has you covered. OptiMem II tech carefully maps memory signal pathways across different PCB layers to reduce vias and also adds shielding zones that significantly reduce crosstalk

Intel Gigabit Ethernet

z390 gigabit intel ethernet

ASUS LANGuard ROG MAXIMUS Gaming motherboards feature Intel Ethernet (I219-V), ensuring data exchanges with your network and the outside world are fast and smooth. Intel LAN reduces CPU overhead and increases TCP and UDP throughput, keeping more processing power. Featuring advanced signal-coupling technology and high-tolerance components, LANGuard provides consistent Ethernet performance and greater protection against static electricity and power surges.

Shielded Audio, Superior Sound

ROG Sonic Studio 3 Audio

Sonic Studio III provides crystal quality sounds Immerse yourself in sound with SupremeFX audio technology. Utilizing the S1220A codec, SupremeFX is the integrated-audio solution that's engineered to provide a flat frequency response for a neutral, detailed sound signature. And to ensure that pristine signature is perfectly preserved, the front-panel output is driven with dual op amps, delivering sonics with the scale and authority to create virtual worlds via your gaming headset. Sonic Studio supports HRTF-based (head-related transfer function*) virtual surround for VR headsets, casting an immersive aural landscape that draws you deeper into the action. The intuitive Sonic Studio interface also offers a range of EQ options and one-click presets, allowing you to tailor acoustics to suit personal preferences or the characteristics of your headset.

ASUS Aura Sync RGB Lighting

Z390 Aura RGB

Effortless Synchronization with all your Components The ASUS Aura ecosystem is in the ascendancy, with an extensive and growing list of ASUS products now offering Aura Sync compatibility — along with loads of compatible accessories and kits available through partners. ROG MAXIMUS Series motherboards deliver sterling performance and superior aesthetics to Outshine the Competition.
