ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XI HERO motherboard LGA 1151 (Socket H4) ATX Intel Z390:

Intel Z390 ATX Gaming motherboard with M.2 heatsink, Aura Sync RGB LED, DDR4 4400MHz, dual M.2, SATA 6Gb/s, and USB 3.1 Gen 2

THE HERO
ROG Maximus XI Hero is the perfect introduction to the Republic of Gamers. It's a Z390 gaming motherboard that packs substantial power, smart cooling and faster memory support under a stealthy skin. Loaded with renowned ROG features, from one-click overclocking and cooling to attention-grabbing Aura Sync illumination, Maximus XI Hero is ready to perform and crafted for customization.

THRILLING PERFORMANCE
With a dedicated onboard clock generator, support for the latest high-performance memory, and cooling options to keep thermals under tight control, Hero provides a potent foundation for your next gaming build.

POWER PERFORMANCE

BUILT FOR OVERCLOCKING
By default, all of Coffee Lake's major bus frequencies are derived from the same reference clock, limiting the control and flexibility needed to harness the full overclocking potential of the platform. ROG Maximus XI Hero features a dedicated onboard clock generator that supplies dynamic reference clocks to the CPU cores and major subdomains, giving you the freedom to coax every MHz of headroom from the system.

DDR4 4400MHZ+
Whether you're gunning for high memory frequencies or tuning timings for the lowest latency, ROG Maximus XI Hero provides the tools you need to exploit the Coffee Lake architecture's full potential: carefully optimized trace pathways maintain signal integrity, and the acclaimed ROG firmware offers the necessary tweaks to ensure stability while maximizing memory performance. Load up with a high-density memory kit for heavy multitasking, or run a focused setup that delivers the bandwidth your favorite games and applications need. Any way you stack it, the Hero has you covered.

OPTIMEM II
To provide Intel's latest CPUs unfettered access to memory bandwidth, we've reimagined motherboard trace routing from the ground up. Our OptiMem II tech carefully maps memory signal pathways across different PCB layers to reduce vias and also adds shielding zones that significantly reduce crosstalk. And to further enhance overclocking headroom for fully stacked memory configurations, we've employed a highly customized T-Topology layout that delivers time-aligned signaling.

COOLING DESIGN

COOLER BY DESIGN
COMPREHENSIVE COOLING ZONE

ROG Maximus XI Hero features the most comprehensive cooling controls ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS.

Multiple temperature sources
Each header can be set to monitor and react to three user-configurable thermal sensors, for workload based cooling. All easily managed by Fan Xpert 4 or UEFI.

Water pump+
A dedicated header that can supply over 3A to high-performance PWM or DC water pumps.

4-pin PWM/DC fan
Every onboard header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.

*W_PUMP+ and AIO PUMP are also PWM/DC controllable.

Fan Extension Header
Allows expansion of three additional DC or PWM fan headers, plus three thermal-probe headers.

Smart protection
A dedicated integrated circuit that protects each fan header from over-temperature and over-current.

Water in/out
Allows for monitoring of temperature at the input/out of any component.

Water flow
Allows for constant monitoring of the flow rate of entire loop

AIO pump
An All-In-One header that supports auto-detection of PWM, DC fans and water pumps.

CONTROL YOUR RIG
Fast, intuitive control is vital for effective command of your rig, so we've loaded ROG Maximus XI Hero with simple, flexible tools that let you tweak almost every system aspect. Enjoy intelligent automated tuning with 5-Way Optimization technology, or dive deep into the revered ROG UEFI BIOS to take full manual control. Hero also makes short work of fine-tuning everything from audio to storage, so it's easy to get every park of your system up to speed.

INTELLIGENT CONTROL

AI OVERCLOCKING
ASUS 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.

CPU POTENTIAL
We created a proprietary algorithm that evaluates the capabilities of your CPU.

COOLING CAPABILITY
The onboard intelligence also watches system vitals like temperatures, fan speeds, and power draw to gauge cooling performance.

AI OVERCLOCKING
Utilizes onboard intelligence to perform automated clocking and provides target frequency and voltage estimations for savvy veterans that prefer manual tuning.

5-WAY OPTIMIZATION
Take care of complex tuning with just one click. ASUS 5-Way Optimization is a system-wide tuning utility that overclocks the processor and tunes fan speeds to ensure the best balance between cooling and acoustics. The automated CPU tuning feature of 5-Way Optimization leverages the same onboard intelligence as AI Overclocking,but goes further by running a Prime95 based stress test to deliver a result that's well-tuned from the get-go.

TPU INSIGHT
The TurboV Processing Unit (TPU) Insight provides AI Suite 3 with the intelligence needed to automatically fine-tune voltages, monitor system stats, and adjust overclocking.

EPU Guidance
The Energy Processing Unit (EPU) Guidance enables system-wide power efficiency, automatically optimizing consumption to maximize savings.

Fan Xpert 4
Enjoy comprehensive control over fans, water pumps and all-in-one (AIO) coolers, via either Fan Expert 4 or our award-winning UEFI.

Digital Power Controls
The Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) delivers real-time control over voltage droop, switching frequency and power-efficiency settings, allowing you to fine-tune CPU voltage regulation for ultimate stability and performance.

Game Faster, Rank Higher
Intel's processors feature per-core tuning, and the ASUS Turbo app makes use of this feature by letting you assign applications to specific processor cores, prioritizing computing power where it's needed most.

UEFI BIOS
The renowned ROG UEFI (BIOS) provides everything you need to configure, tweak, and tune your rig. It offers intelligently simplified options for newcomers to PC DIY, as well as comprehensive features for seasoned veterans.

When you're ready for a deeper dive into the configuration of your system, delve into the UEFI's Advanced mode and take complete control. Each section is intuitively organized, and a built-in search feature makes it easy to find the options you need. Advanced functions are coded with the intelligence to adapt to your settings, and when you're ready to take charge, parameters have the granularity to dial in performance just the way you want.
