Buffed and ready with more power, robust cooling, and flexible I/O to scale up your rig at will. The ROG Maximus Z790 Hero puts it all at your disposal together with an arsenal of features and utilities to truly express the PC builder, overclocker, and gaming hero in you.
ROG OVERCLOCKING TECHNOLOGIES
Psyche up and engage the Hero overclocker in you, with onboard intelligence to scan, predict, and adapt CPU performance parameters, and tools to command and track system vitals.
Tuning is now faster and smarter than ever before. ASUS AI Overclocking profiles the CPU and cooling to predict the optimal configuration and push the system to its limits. Predicted values can be engaged automatically or used as a launching ground for further experimentation.
Conventional motherboards use single-ended sensing tapped from a location that isn't ideal, leading to a large disparity between the actual voltage fed to the CPU and the value reported to software. The ROG Maximus Z790 Hero features a differential-sensing circuit and delicate IC that simplify overclocking and tuning by allowing you to track voltages more accurately.
Stacked with titanic heatsink arrays and surging with controls for liquid- and air-cooled setups, the Hero is fully armed to combat the fiery heat of the latest processors and high-speed drives.
Next-gen connectivity for graphics, storage, peripherals, and networking, plus high-definition audio for all types of setups - it all combines to create a Hero that’s connected with now and the future.
Flexible utilities and firmware provide everything needed to optimize the performance of your system loadout.
Illuminating the I/O shroud of the ROG Maximus Z790 Hero 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.
