Teamed Power Architecture

Crafted For PerformanceToday's CPU architectures place incredible demands on motherboard power design by transitioning from deep power-saving modes, going from lower-power mode to full load in an instant. The latest ROG VRM architecture rises to the challenge by utilizing teamed power stages to rapidly swing current, while maintaining exemplary thermal performance.

20+1 Power StagesThe VRM features 20+1 power stages, each rated to handle a massive 90A.

8+8 PIN ProCool II Power ConnectorsDual ProCool connectors ensure a snug and reliable connection to the EPS 12V Power line.

Robust Power solution

10K Black Metallic CapacitorsInput and output filtering is provided by solid-polymer capacitors rated to last thousands of hours at high operating temperatures.

Microfine Alloy ChokesEach power stage is accompanied with a high-permeability alloy-core choke rated to handle 45 amps.

Push It To The Limit

DDR5 memory support

DDR5 DominationROG has a long legacy of flexing the fastest memory performance, and DDR5 is no outlier. Thanks to improved signal routing, now enthusiast-grade kits have been driven far beyond the 7 GT/s mark on the Maximus Z790 HERO, and who knows how far future DIMMs can go? Seasoned veterans can test their mettle by tinkering with the extensive array of tuning options in the UEFI.

Keep Your Components Cool

1. VRM and Aluminium I/O heatsinkA VRM heatsink on the MOSFETs and chokes is connected to the aluminum I/O cover via an embedded heatpipe to increase mass and surface area for dissipation.

2. M.2 heatsink and backplatesLarge aluminium heatsinks provide extensive surface area to cool mounted M.2 drives, and each of the three onboard slots has a dedicated backplate for additional heat dissipation.

Maximum Cooling

3. High-conductivity thermal padsEach thermal pad improves overall heat transfer from the system by bridging the heat generated by the power stages to the heatsink. For future maintenance, a replacement thermal pad can also be found in the package.

4. Chipset heatsinkA dedicated heatsink draws heat away from the chipset to maintain optimum operating temperature.

Superb Thermal Management

Thermal Headers

Multiple temperature sourcesEach 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 fan headersIn addition to the pair of CPU fan headers, the Maximus Z790 HERO features four chassis headers, and each supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.

AIO pump headerAn additional PWM/DC fan header offers dedicated control of self-contained water-cooling setups.

Ready for Lightning Speeds?

PCIe 5.0 ReadyFully embracing the new standard, the ROG Maximus Z790 HERO offers abundant Gen 5 support to give unfettered bandwidth to the fastest SSDs and graphics cards available.

Onboard m.2

Three Onboard M.2 SlotsThe ROG Maximus Z790 HERO features three onboard M.2 slots, all of which can deliver impressive read and write speeds of up to 8 GB/s.

HYPER M.2 Card

ROG Hyper M.2 Card Two additional slots ride on the ROG Hyper M.2 Card, providing the option to deploy both a PCIe 5.0 and 4.0 drive under a large heatsink that ensures optimal temperatures.

Expansion Slots

Expansion SlotsBoth of the x16 expansion slots have the PCIe 5.0 treatment to offer incredible speeds up to 64 GB/s for compatible devices. To bear the brunt of massive graphics cards, they are also protected with SafeSlot retention brackets, and the top slot can be released easily thanks to the Q-Release button.

Embrace Ultra-Fast Connectivity

WIFI 6E connectivity

WIFI 6EOnboard WiFi 6E technology takes advantage of newly available spectrum in the 6 GHz band to provide up to seven 160 MHz channels for ultrafast throughput and better performance in dense wireless environments.

2.5G ETHERNET Low-latency gaming, speedy file transfers, and high-resolution video streaming are among the many perks of onboard Intel® 2.5 Gbps Ethernet.

Breathtaking Personalisation Options

Aura SyncUp your game with complementary Aura Sync enhanced aesthetics, featuring preset lighting effects that can be easily synchronised across compatible ROG graphics cards, monitors, keyboards, and mice to give your setup a unified look.

SONIC STUDIO IIISonic Studio supports HRTF-based (head-related transfer function*) virtual surround for 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.

Superb Personalisation

ARMOURY CRATEArmoury Crate is a software utility designed to give you centralised control of supported gaming products, making it easy to tune the look and feel of your system. From a single intuitive interface, Armoury Crate helps you customise RGB lighting and effects for compatible devices and synchronise them with Aura Sync to create a unified lighting scheme across your system. In addition, Armoury Crate’s Fan Xpert4 tool provides comprehensive control over fans, water pumps, and all-in-one (AIO) coolers.
