THE HERO EVERYONE WANTS
Drawing from a heritage that spans more than a decade, the latest incarnation of the Maximus series augments Intel's Z370 chipset with all the enhancements that enthusiasts crave. Each model sports a unique blend of features to cater to a distinct audience, yet the core ROG DNA ripples through the entire lineup. From overclocking and cooling options to satiate
die-hard fanatics, to clean, refined aesthetics that are tastefully accented by RGB lighting, Maximus X-series motherboards bring the octane to your build.
AURA LIGHTING CONTROL
A 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 as well as strips connected to the onboard RGB headers. And it can all be synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-capable ASUS hardware
RGB LIGHTING PERFECTED
ROG Maximus X Hero features a duo of onboard 5050 RGB headers and an addressable header that can be connected to compatible lighting strips, fans, coolers, and PC cases, creating a new world of illumination possibilities.
*The addressable RGB header supports WS2812B addressable RGB LED strips (5V/Data/Ground), with a max power
rating of 3A (5V) and a max of 60 LEDs. * The Aura RGB-strip header supports 5050 RGB LED strips with a max power rating of 3A (12V). For maximum
brightness, strip length should not exceed 3m. **RGB and addressable RGB LED extension cables are included. LED strips and Aura Sync-compatible devices are sold separately.
ROG Maximus X Hero is equipped with a stylish, angular M.2 heatsink that keeps your SSD cool. By efficiently
dissipating heat away from the M.2 area, ROG Maximus X Hero minimizes the possibility of the performance-sapping throttling that can happen when drives become too warm. The heatsink's angular design adds an eye-catching touch to any build, while the T-sensor detects temperatures in the vital M.2 area for instant monitoring.
DDR4 OC 4133MHZ+
ASUS OptiMem preserves memory signal integrity by routing memory traces and vias to the optimal PCB layer, and our
T-Topology layout ensures time-aligned signaling by balancing trace lengths between memory slots. These enhancements
lead to more headroom for overclocking and improved stability, allowing memory speeds of DDR4-4133 and beyond with
all slots populated.
ROG's awesome SupremeFX audio technology has levelled up, delivering an exceptional 113dB signal-to-noise ratio
the line-in connection — and that means our best-ever recording quality! We've also added a low-dropout regulator for
cleaner power delivery to the SupremeFX S1220 codec, an ESS® Sabre Hi-Fi ES9023P digital-to-analog converter for
superior front-panel output, and a Texas Instruments® RC4850 op-amp for high gain with low distortion — which all adds

*1 The PCIe x4_3 slot shares bandwidth with PCIex1_3. The PCIe x4_3 runs x2 mode by default.
*2 When the M.2_1 socket is operating in SATA mode, SATA port 1 will be disabled.
*3 When the M.2_2 socket is operating in PCIEX4 mode, SATA port 5. 6 will be disabled.
*4 This function will work depending on the CPU installed.
*5 Due to limitations in HDA bandwidth, 32-Bit/192kHz is not supported for 8-Channel audio.
