ASUS Prime X299 Edition 30 Motherboard
Built For Extreme CPU and GPU Power with AI OverclockingThe ASUS Prime X299 Edition 30 celebrates three decades of ASUS motherboard development. This high-end desktop combines cutting-edge performance for X series CPU’s with signature features from ASUS, including a powerful VRM tailored for overclocking, intuitive cooling control, next-gen connectivity, and extensive customisation. It also has a brand-new Smart Control Console with an external OLED and built-in webcam which has gesture tracking and voice input. Please Note: The Intel X299 chipset supports LGA 2066-socket Intel Core X-series processors. It provides improved performance by utilizing serial point-to-point links, allowing increased bandwidth and stability. Additionally, X299 provides a maximum 10 USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports, 8 SATA 6 Gbps ports and 32 Gbps M.2 support for faster data retrieval.
Prime X299 Robust Power System
Gain the edge from a more efficient Encore Power DesignThe LGA 2066 socket is compatible with the latest Intel Core X-Series Processors with up to 18 cores, over 44 PCI Express® lanes, and 165-watt thermal design power (TDP). Those specs require serious power, especially if you're overclocking, so the Prime X299 Edition 30 is equipped with a premium power solution that includes 16 power stages that line up neatly along the top edge of the PCB. The power stages are cooled well enough to sustain a staggering up to 544 W output, which is more than enough to overclock 18-core CPUs into truly extreme territory.
Tune it your Way with AI Overclocking
onboard intelligence lets you perform automated overclocking in a single clickASUS 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. A proprietary algorithm evaluates the capabilities of your CPU whilst watching system vitals such as temperature, fan speed, and power draw to gauge cooling performance.
Go Further than Before with DDR4 4266MHZ+
load up on GPUs to accelerate an increasingly diverse array of workThe X299 platform delivers ample bandwidth on multiple fronts. Its quad-channel memory controller supports up to 256 GB of DDR4 memory across eight slots. With optimised trace layout, the Prime X299 Edition 30 can hit memory speeds up to DDR4 4266 MHz or beyond. Fully loaded takes on a new meaning when you have over 44 PCI Express lanes stemming from the CPU. Those lanes can be split in an x16/x16/x8 configuration spanning the board's trio of PCIe x16 slots, allowing you to load up on GPUs to accelerate an increasingly diverse array of work.
Actively Cooled M.2 and VRM Heatsink
Effective cooling is extremely importantSince mass and airflow are critically important, our VRM heatsink is manufactured with skived, high aspect ratio thin fins. The hidden 40 mm fan turns on after 60°C. This combination offers optimal cooling for CPU-intensive tasks. Professional applications require fast solid-state storage, which is why the Prime X299 Edition 30 is equipped with three M.2 slots that are compatible with the latest NVMe SSDs. Two M.2 slots are covered by heatsinks to combat temperature-induced throttling that can affect performance during heavy, sustained storage loads. A reinforced backplate improves the stability of the board, and the included thermal pad efficiently directs heat away from the VRM and other components.
Featuring the Most Comprehensive Cooling Options Ever
Multiple Temperature SourcesEach header can dynamically reference three thermal sensors, and via Fan Xpert 4 you can even map the temperature of supported ASUS graphics cards to optimise cooling for GPU- and CPU-intensive tasks.
Dual pump headers A dedicated header that supplies over 3A for high-performance PWM or DC water pumps, plus a second dedicated header for AIOs.
Smart protection A dedicated integrated circuit that protects each fan header from overheating and overcurrent.
4-pin PWM/DC fan Each onboard header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.
Control Your Rig With Detailed Tuning Software
level up your performanceOne click takes care of all that complex tuning. ASUS 5-Way Optimisation makes your PC smart. It dynamically optimises essential aspects of the system, providing overclocking and cooling profiles that are tailored for your rig.
Flexible Cooling Controls for Air or Liquid With Prime X299 Edition 30, you have comprehensive control over fans via FanXpert 4 or UEFI. Whether you are cooling with air or water, Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. There's also an Extreme Quiet mode, which reduces all fan speeds to below the default minimum – keeping your system quiet as a whisper when performing light tasks.
CPU Performance Boost 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 With the Energy Processing Unit (EPU), you'll enjoy system-wide power savings. The EPU automatically optimises power consumption and maximises savings with the Away mode.
Optimization for gamers and professionals The latest X-series processors from Intel feature per-core tuning, and the ASUS Turbo Core app makes use of this feature by enabling you to assign applications to specific processor cores, allowing you to prioritise compute power where it's needed the most.
Precise Digital Power Controls The Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) delivers a real-time control over voltages, switching frequency and power-efficiency settings, allowing you to fine-tune your CPU for ultimate stability and performance.
Intel Integrated Ultra Wi-Fi Support
Aquantia 5G Ethernet for Accelerated built-in networkingThe Prime X299 Edition 30 comes with the latest Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200, which is compatible with 802.11ax. Otherwise known as Wi-Fi 6, the new networking protocol pushes theoretical peak bandwidth up to an incredible 2.4 Gbps. Perhaps more importantly for power users, it's optimised for more efficient operation on crowded networks with a lot of competing traffic. Prime X299 Edition 30 has 5Gbps Ethernet onboard to deliver up to 5X the bandwidth of standard gigabit Ethernet. You'll enjoy streaming uncompressed 4K UHD videos without stutter, and backups and file transfers that are faster than ever before. The rear I/O panel has dual Thunderbolt 3 Type-C ports that support data in addition to DisplayPort 1.4 output.
Upgrade to Unrivalled Audio
Surround Sound with DTS:X ULTRA Prime X299 Edition 30 utilises a unique audio codec designed in close collaboration with Realtek — the Realtek S1220. It also features an unprecedented 120dB signal-to-noise ratio for the stereo line-out and a 113dB SNR for the line-in, providing pristine audio quality. Additionally, a new impedance-sensing circuit automatically adjusts the gain to ensure optimal volume range for your headphones. DTS:X® Ultra adds a spatial audio feature to boost headphones and speakers for enhanced gaming, VR, and extended-reality experiences and supports sound based on channels, scenes, and objects to allow for deeper sonic immersion in enabled content.
Link your RGB styles and effects across all ASUS devices
ASUS' RGB Software with Addressable Gen 2 RGB headerA well-tuned enthusiast system deserves a matching aesthetic. ASUS Aura offers full RGB lighting control with a variety of functional presets for the built-in RGB LEDs and they can all be synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-capable ASUS hardware. The board has dual headers for standard 4-pin RGB strips*, plus two more for the new Addressable Gen 2 RGB strips** and devices.
Your AI Companion
Smart Control ConsoleThe Smart Control Console is an external module that connects via USB. It comes with a stand that allows it to sit neatly on top of the monitor, and its integrated OLED can be controlled separately from the onboard LiveDash. A 720p IR webcam allows the module to support face login via Windows Hello, a biometric authentication feature. It can also track movement, enabling gesture-based controls to command basic functions such as scrolling and dragging. An integrated array mic enhances Cortana and Alexa voice recognition support. You can command your PC to trigger CPU voltages and fan RPMs, using three specific voice commands.
