Description

ASUS ROG Maximus IX Hero LGA1151 DDR4 DP HDMI M.2 USB 3.1 ATX Motherboard

  • Designed for 7th generation Intel® Core™ processors to maximize connectivity and speed with Dual M.2, front panel USB 3.1 and Intel® Optane™ Memory compatibility
  • 5-Way Optimization with Auto-Tuning and FanXpert 4 automatically tailors overclocking profiles to your unique build for maximum OC performance and dynamic system cooling
  • Unmatched personalization with ASUS exclusive AURA Sync RGB lighting and a 3D-printing friendly mount
  • Two Patent-pending SafeSlots feature an injection molding process that integrates metal framing for a stronger, firmly anchored PCIe slot built for heavyweight GPUs
  • Industry-leading 8-channel HD audio with the ROG exclusive SupremeFX S1220 driven by Japanese capacitors
  • Hollow heat-sink with red-hot style

    The heat-sink is finely engineered with an innovative perforated design for maximum heat dissipation. On its top are expertly angled facets that allow light from the platform controller hub to penetrate through - so your builds stand out unlike any other!
  • ROG water cooling zone

    ROG's innovative water-cooling zone lets you monitor your cooling system like never before. ROG water-cooling zone's dual water-temperature headers and flow-rate header feed information straight into ROG's intuitive Fan Xpert 4 utility - so you can stay on top of the heat and stay cool in every game!
  • Aura lighting control

    Customize your own favorite LED effects with Aura, the intuitive lighting-control software, to cast a stunning multi-color glow across your build via the ROG Maximus IX Hero's brilliant built-in RGB LEDs or attached RGB strips via the two onboard 4-pin headers - all lights will perform in perfect synchronization! Fire up Aura and enjoy the creative freedom of nine different lighting schemes.
  • Outshine the competition aura-sync

    ASUS Aura Sync technology makes ROG Maximus IX Hero the control hub for your illumination ambitions - so it's easy to synchronize incredible lighting effects between compatible components, including RGB LED strips, graphics cards, keyboards and even mice! Change all LEDs in unison or employ dynamic modes to flow the illumination effects smoothly across all synchronized devices.
  • The SupremeFX codec

    ROG's awesome SupremeFX audio technology has leveled up, delivering an exceptional 113 dB signal-to-noise ratio on the line-in connection - and that means the 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 up to audio that envelops you as never before.
  • Sonic Studio III

    ROG's Sonic Studio III audio effects station has been updated with an all-new routing feature to port streams to different outputs as well as app-level preferences for instant audio profiles and improved noise filtering for conversations with total clarity!
