ROG Zenith II Extreme Alpha Motherboard for the 3rd Gen Threadripper CPU

ROG Zenith II Extreme Alpha

RAISING THE PERFORMANCE BAR FOR CREATORS, DEVELOPERS AND PC ENTHUSIASTSROG Zenith II Extreme Alpha has many amazing high tech features to unleash the savage computing power of the ground-breaking 64-core AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPUs. The Zenith II Extreme Alpha has with 16 high-current 90A power stages that delivers supreme efficiency and enhanced headroom for overclocking, empowering you to push performance as never before. ASUS have taken advantage of the lane bandwidth which lets you connect up to 33 devices simultaneously, while every single PCIe x16 and M.2 slot is wired with PCIe® 4.0 – so you're free to equip the latest generation graphics cards or NVMe drives without fear of bottlenecks. Massive power, massive bandwidth.

ROG Zenith II Extreme Alpha motherboard supports the latest 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ series processors that boast up to 32 cores. It features quad-channel DDR4 memory, 64 lanes of PCI Express® 4.0, 16 GT/s transfer speed for Gen 4 M.2 SSDs, and built-in native USB 3.2 Gen 2 (10 Gbps) for superior performance.

Innovative Features Allow you to Excel

ROG Zenith II Extreme Alpha Networking

Zenith II Extreme Alpha Gaming has the muscle to control the latest Threadripper CPUsModern CPU architectures up the ante for motherboard power design by transitioning from deep power-saving modes to full load almost instantaneously. Our latest VRM architecture rises to the challenge by utilising teamed power stages to rapidly swing current, while maintaining exemplary thermal performance.

VRM HEATSINK A VRM heatsink is placed on the MOSFETs and chokes, and the embedded heatpipe connects to the aluminium I/O cover.

DUAL M.2 HEATSINKThe ROG DIMM.2 module now passively cools M.2 drives with metal heatsinks that also keep your build looking clean.

Aluminium heatsink coverThe heatsink cover is crafted from pure aluminium to efficiently cool the two onboard M.2 drives.

BACKPLATEA steel, cold-rolled coil construction backplate strengthens the motherboard to prevent bending, and adds additional mass to siphon heat from the VRM.

Chipset heatsinkA chipset heatsink blends seamlessly with the aluminium heatsink cover and prominently features the ROG logo.

Aluminium I/O coverAn aluminium I/O cover is connected to the primary heatsink, increasing mass and surface area.

OPTIMEM III DDR4 4733MHz+ (O.C.)

ROG TRX40 memory

Overclocked memory speeds go through the roofInfused with proprietary memory trace layout tweaks that improve signal integrity and mitigate noise, OptiMem III allows memory kits to run at lower latencies and reduced voltages while operating at higher frequencies. Stack the Zenith II Extreme Alpha with your favourite modules and maximise latest Threadripper CPU throughput for applications that demand massive bandwidth, or balance Infinity Fabric and memory performance for a diverse range of workloads.

Plenty of Comprehensive Cooling Options

Active-cooling chipset & VRM heatsink Great power requires great cooling, so ROG Zenith II Extreme Alpha employs large VRM heatsinks that strike the right balance between surface area and mass. The chipset heatsink integrates an active-cooling solution, helping to keep the underlying silicon stay cool under pressure, and also employs the same airflow to chill the SoC VRM. The extra-large heatsinks also cover multiple M.2 slots, meaning Zenith II Extreme Alpha is fully armed to provide the best foundation for extreme PC systems – enabling higher performance at lower temperatures.

CPU Fan Header

CUSTOM DELTA SUPERFLO FANS The custom low-noise fans features high-durability bearings with a 60,000-hour L10* lifespan.
* L10 bearing lifespan specifies the minimum number of hours that 90% of the bearings are expected to last.

M.2 Drive

FINNED HEATSINK The heatsink fin density is optimised to maximise surface area while maintaining a low-resistance exhaust path.

4-pin PWM/DC Fan Header

AIR DUCT A specially-designed air duct helps the fan generate static pressure and concentrates air flow over the fins.

Triple M.2 Drives Utilising PCIe 4.0

ROG Zenith II Extreme Alpha m.2

ready for the new generation Having the bandwidth to fuel multiple PCIe SSDs and graphics cards is part of the allure of high-end desktop platforms. ROG Zenith II Extreme Alpha fully exploits Threadripper's 64-lane capability, empowering you to connect up to 20 PCIe devices simultaneously. Every single PCIe x16 and M.2 is wired with PCIe 4.0, and the board also accelerates both wired and wireless networking – with both Aquantia 10 Gbps Ethernet and the latest Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) onboard.

Explore your Limits with Multiple Networking Technologies

ROG Zenith II Extreme Alpha Networking

beefed-up bandwidth so you can push throughput to the limitsThe beefed-up bandwidth doesn't stop with the TRX40 platform. We also equipped Zenith II Extreme Alpha with multiple networking technologies, so you can push throughput to the limits.
GameFirst V is an ROG-exclusive tool that lets you use a ROG router to build a ROG-networking ecosystem. Select the best Wi-Fi channel for maximum stability and minimum interference, optimize network traffic and your connection for lag-free online gaming, team your gateways and keep tabs on bandwidth-hogging apps — all from an intuitive interface that enables easy, on-the-fly adjustments. ROG First searches for ROG routers on the network and lets you automatically optimize their adaptive QoS settings for the best gaming performance, so you don't have to log in and configure the router manually.

Wi-Fi 6 (AX200)Onboard Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) supports ultrafast network speeds, improved capacity and better performance in dense Wi-Fi environments, providing exceptional online gaming experiences.
