ASUS ROG STRIX MAXIMUS Z790 HERO WiFi LGA1700 ATX Motherboard (DDR5)

The ASUS ROG Maximus Z790 HERO is so packed with features we couldn’t possibly mention them all here. The ones we have space to mention are dual Thunderbolt 4 ports, WIFI 6E, BT 5.3, 2x PCIe 5.0 slot, DDR5 support and up to 5x M.2 ports.

Features

  1. Socket LGA1700 ATX motherboard with Intel Z790 chipset
  2. Supports Intel LGA1700 CPUs only
  3. Integrated Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth v5.3
  4. 4x DDR5 DIMM sockets (max. 128 GB)
  5. HDMI 2.1 outputs and 2x Thunderbolt 4 ports
  6. 3x PCIe x16 slots (2x PCIe 5.0), 2.5Gb Ethernet
  7. 6x SATA 6Gb/s, 3x PCIe M.2, ROG Hyper M.2 Card and RAID support
  8. 1x USB3.2 (gen2x2, Type-C), 3x USB3.2 (gen2, one Type-C), 4x USB3.2 (gen1)

Returning to the forefront of performance, the maximus flagship series races to pole position, buffed and ready with more power, the Z790 MAXIMUS HERO boasts a powerful and robust 20+1 teamed power solution, DDR5 memory support, PCIe 5.0 technology, massive storage capabilities with 3x onboard M.2 slots and bundled Hyper M.2 PCIe 5.0 ready expansion card, a heavily optimised thermal solution, WIFI 6E and dual Thunderbolt 4 connectivity and plenty of personalisation options ranging from Polymo lighting through to the exclusive ASUS armory crate technology. 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.

CRAFTED FOR PERFORMANCE

Today’s CPU architectures place incredible demands on motherboard power design by transitioning from deep power-saving modes, going from lower-power mode to full load in an instant. The latest ROG VRM architecture rises to the challenge by utilising teamed power stages to rapidly swing current, while maintaining exemplary thermal performance.

DDR5 DOMINATION

ROG has a long legacy of flexing the fastest memory performance, and DDR5 is no outlier. Thanks to improved signal routing, now enthusiast-grade kits have been driven far beyond the 7 GT/s mark on the Maximus Z790 HERO, and who knows how far future DIMMs can go? Seasoned veterans can test their mettle by tinkering with the extensive array of tuning options in the UEFI.

PCIE 5.0 READY

Fully embracing the new standard, the ROG Maximus Z790 HERO offers abundant Gen 5 support to give unfettered bandwidth to the fastest SSDs and graphics cards available.

VRM AND ALUMINIUM I/O HEATSINK

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

HEATSINK AND BACKPLATES

Large aluminium heatsinks provide extensive surface area to cool mounted M.2 drives, and each of the three onboard slots has a dedicated backplate for additional heat dissipation.

ABUNDANT CONNECTIVITY

The ASUS ROG Z790 MAXIMUS HERO provides dual Thunderbolt 4 USB Type-C ports, USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 Type-C front-panel connector with Quick Charge 4+ up to 60W, six additional USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports, two PCIe 5.0 x16 SafeSlots and a HDMI 2.1 port.

EXPANSION SLOTS

Both of the x16 expansion slots have the PCIe 5.0 treatment to offer incredible speeds up to 64 GB/s for compatible devices. To bear the brunt of massive graphics cards, they are also protected with SafeSlot retention brackets, and the top slot can be released easily thanks to the Q-Release button.

THREE ONBOARD M.2 SLOTS

The ROG Maximus Z790 HERO features three onboard M.2 slots, all of which can deliver impressive read and write speeds of up to 8 GB/s.

ROG HYPER M.2 CARD

Two additional M.2 slots can be found on the ROG Hyper M.2 Card, providing the option to deploy both a PCIe 5.0 and 4.0 drive under a large heatsink that ensures optimal temperatures. See specifications table for more information.
