ROG Maximus Z790 Hero EVA-02 Edition

ASUS ROG Maximus Z790 Hero EVA-02 Edition Intel Z790 LGA 1700 ATX motherboard, 20 + 1 power stages, DDR5, five M.2 slots, PCIe 5.0, Thunderbolt 4 USB Type-C port, Wi-Fi 6E, AI Overclocking, and Aura Sync RGB


This is a new collaboration centered around EVA-02 and Asuka of the long-celebrated Evangelion anime series. After catching your eye with EVA-02’s signature red-and-orange theme and traces of green, the artistic flourishes keep coming: an AT Field design surrounds the CPU socket, and Polymo lighting on the I/O cover switches between Asuka and regular EVA-02. The backplate design showcases EVA-02 “The Beast” mode and Evangelion patterns, adding to the motherboard's visual appeal.

1. 20 + 1 POWER STAGES

2. INTEL SOCKET LGA 1700 For 13th Gen Intel Core Processors, and 12th Gen Intel Core, Pentium Gold, and Celeron Processors

3. DDR5, 4 X DIMM: Dual Channel

4. EXPANSION SLOTS: 2 x PCIe 5.0 x16 Safeslots (x16, x8/x8)​, 1 x PCIe 4.0 x16 Slot (x4, x4/x4 via ROG Hyper M.2 Card)

5. 3 X M.2 SLOTS: 1 x M.2 22110 (PCIe 4.0 x4), 1 x M.2 2280 (PCIe 4.0 x4), 1 x M.2 2280 (PCIe 4.0 x4 & SATA) ROG HYPER M.2 CARD: 1 x M.2 22110 (PCIe 5.0 x4 / PCIe 4.0 x4), 1 x M.2 22110 (PCIe 4.0 x4)


Illuminating the I/O shroud of the ROG Maximus Z790 Hero EVA-02 Edition is a colorful microstructural array called Polymo Lighting. Two stylish patterns are available for builders to tinker with in Armoury Crate and sync up with the rest of their system for a brilliant display of individuality.


Intelligent software solutions help ensure that your system performs at its best. The latest ASUS AI-powered enhancements span four pillars of performance, including overclocking, cooling, networking and onboard audio, making advanced tweaks and optimization accessible to new recruits and savvy PC DIY veterans alike.


A vapor chamber featuring milled pathways lets the heatpipes sink in w/o being pressed flat, allowing heat to be carried more efficiently to the fin stack. In comparison to conventional vapor chambers & heatpipe combos, this potent pairing reduces GPU temperature by up to 5°C when subjected to a 500W thermal load.

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

2. M.2 heatsinks & backplates: Large aluminum heatsinks provide extensive surface area to cool mounted M.2 drives & each of the 3 onboard slots has a dedicated backplate for additional heat dissipation.

3. Chipset heatsink: A dedicated heatsink draws heat away from the chipset to maintain optimum operating temperature.

1. Metal backplate: A metal plate spans the underside of the ROG Maximus Z790 Hero EVA-02 Edition, establishing a reinforced platform for smoother DIY PC building.
