Built to Take the Strain
POWER DELIVERY ENHANCEMENTS ROG Maximus XIII Apex makes overclocking accessible to both beginners and seasoned enthusiasts alike. Its intelligent power solution caters to the demands of the latest Intel processors, while comprehensive controls give you the tools you need to ramp up performance.
1. 8-pin ProCool II power connectors Two ProCool II Power Connectors ensure a snug and reliable connection to the EPS 12V Power Lines.
Power Stages The VRM features 18 power stages, each rated to handle 90 amps.
Alloy ChokesEach Power stage is accompanied by a high-permeability alloy-core choke rated to handle 45 amps.
4. 10K Black
Metallic Capacitors Input and output filtering is provided by solid-polymer capacitors rated to last thousands of hours at high operating temperatures.
Cooler by Design
COMPREHENSIVE COOLING ZONEA high-end battle station needs robust cooling to deliver peak performance. ROG Maximus XIII Hero employs an enlarged cooling array for the VRM and chipset, plus four M.2 sinks teamed with backplate blocks to wick heat away from critical components. That rugged foundation is backed by complimentary headers for fans, AIOs and liquid loops, paired with flexible control options that allow you to keep thermals in check at all times.
Multiple temperature sources Each header can be set to monitor and react to three user-configurable thermal sensors for workload-based cooling, and all settings can be easily managed by Fan Xpert 4 or UEFI.
4-pin PWM/DC Fan Every onboard header auto-detects any PWM or DC fan, with three chassis fan headers offering ASUS HYDRANODE support.
AIO Pump A dedicated PWM/DC header for self-contained water-cooling setups.
Full Speed Fan Two full speed fan headers allow for targeted airflow during extreme overclocking.
Water pump+ A dedicated header can supply over 3 amps to a high-performance PWM or DC water pumps.
Water in/out A dedicated header enables monitoring of temperatures at the input/output points of any component.
Water flow A dedicated header enables constant monitoring of flow rate throughout the entire loop.
Unprecedented Thermal Dominance
1. VRM and Aluminium I/O Heatsink A VRM heatsink on the MOSFETs and chokes is connected to the aluminium I/O cover via an embedded heatpipe to increase mass and surface area for dissipation.
2. Extended VRM
& M.2 Heatsinks The extended heatsink helps further cool the VRM and an M.2 drive mounted in the primary onboard slot.
M.2 HeatsinkAn aluminium heatsink cover efficiently cools an M.2 drive mounted in the second onboard slot.
4. U-Shaped Heatpipe The heatpipe efficiently distributes the thermal load across the entire array.
5. High-Conductivity Thermal Pad High-quality thermal pads improve thermal transfer from the power stages to the heatsink.
6. M.2 Backplates The two onboard M.2 slots feature backplate blocks to help cool high-performance drives, even when airflow is restricted.
7. Chipset Heatsink A dedicated heatsink draws heat away from the chipset to maintain optimum operating temperatures.
Support for up to Quad PCIe NVMe M.2
PCIe 4.0 ReadyThe ROG Maximus XIII is equipped with four onboard m.2 slots, with two offering the latest PCIe 4.0 support for the latest GPUs and High-Speed SSDs.
PCIe 4.0-Ready ROG Maximus XIII Apex is equipped with four onboard M.2 slots, with two offering PCIe 4.0 support for the latest GPUs and high-speed SSDs. To cope with the heat generated by high-performance M.2 SSDs, each drive is protected by a dedicated M.2 heatsink and an embedded backplate.
ROG DIMM.2 The ROG DIMM.2 module is an innovative expansion card that allows two M.2 drives to be connected via a DDR4 interface. You can then add metal heatsinks, helping to control thermals for maximum performance while elevating the aesthetics.
The Future of Home-Networking
Intel® Wi-Fi 6E (Gig+) Onboard WiFi 6E technology takes advantage of the newly available radio spectrum in the 6 GHz band, providing up to three times the bandwidth of the 5 GHz band and up to seven 160 MHz bands to deliver ultrafast wireless networking speeds along with improved capacity and better performance in dense wireless environments.
Intel® 2.5 Gb Ethernet Onboard 2.5 Gb Ethernet gives your wired connection a boost, with up to a 2.5X improvement over standard Ethernet connections for faster file transfers, smoother lag-free gaming and high-res video streaming.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
