Experience DDR5 Overclocking Strength

PUSH FREQUENCY AND TIMINGS TO THE MAX

Comprehensive memory tuning options are the cornerstone of ROG motherboards. For DDR5, the Maximus Z690 lineup breaks performance limits by providing a stacked suite of overclocking parameters for not only high-speed kits, but even entry-level memory modules that have a locked power management IC (PMIC).

features

A DEDICATED CIRCUIT FOR DDR5

Ordinarily, a restricted PMIC that has been unlocked requires the system to be fully power-cycled each time memory voltage is adjusted. ROG motherboards leverage onboard hardware and firmware to cleverly work around this irksome limitation, enabling voltage adjustments to be applied through the same soft system-reset process employed for previous generations of DDR memory.

features

HIGH-QUALITY COMPONENTS

1. 10K Black metallic capacitors

2. MicroFine alloy chokes

3. The VRM features 20 1 power stages

4. 8 8-pin PROCOOL II power connectors

The latest ROG VRM architecture rises to the challenge by utilizing teamed power stages to rapidly swing current, while maintaining exemplary thermal performance.

AI Overclocking at a Glance

INTELLIGENT MOTHERBOARD

ROG engineers developed and extensively-tested intelligent software solutions to ensure your system stays in optimal condition. Tuning is now faster and smarter than ever before. ASUS AI Overclocking profiles the CPU and cooling to predict the optimal configuration and push each system to its limits.

features

DESIGNED BY EXPERTS

For each new motherboard platform, ROG in-house experts painstakingly profile thousands of processors and system configurations to hone the highly advanced algorithm of AI Overclocking.

features

PREDICTIVE EDGE

The algorithm analyses your CPU and system cooling, and then defines optimal voltage and frequency settings. Predicted values can be applied manually or engaged automatically to save time.

features

REAL-TIME ADJUSTMENTS

Once activated, the AI Overclocking utility continually tracks vital system stats, making profile adjustments to account for changes in system usage or ambient temperature.

Top-level PC Performance Demands Exceptional Cooling

cooling

COOLER BY DESIGN

The ROG Maximus Z690 Hero is armed with robust VRM and chipset heatsinks that provide the perfect balance of mass and surface area for heat dissipation. Load up with an AIO or custom cooling loop paired with your choice of fans to keep thermals under complete control. Three dedicated heatsinks keep up to three M.2 drives in the optimum operating temperature range for consistent performance and reliability.

1. VRM and aluminium I/O heatsink

2. Three dedicated M.2 heatsinks

3. L-shaped heatpipe

4. High-conductivity thermal pad

5. Dual M.2 slots feature M.2 backplates

6. Dedicated chipset heatsink

PERSONALIZE AND GEAR UP WITH ROG COMPONENTS

In addition to elite performance, ROG Maximus Z690 Hero introduces the new Polymo Lighting display, gracing the I/O cover with an eye-catching microstructural array of light and color. This intricate design features two RGB patterns, empowering builders to show off a luminous RGB style that they won’t see anywhere else. From graphics card and monitors to mice and keyboards. And up your game with complementary aesthetics, control and compatibility. The ROG ecosystem is more extensive than any competing brand, so you’ll enjoy greater choice as your system expands.

Expert Thermal Management

Multiple Temperature Sources

ROG Water-Cooling Zone

cooling

THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE COOLING OPTIONS EVER

Each header can be set to monitor and react to three user-configurable thermal sensors for workload-based cooling, and all settings can be easily managed by Fan Xpert 4 or UEFI. Every onboard header auto-detects any PWM or DC fan, with three chassis fan headers offering ASUS HYDRANODE support. Includes a dedicated PWM/DC header for self-contained water-cooling setups.

COOLING SOLUTION

Dual water-temperature headers and a flow-rate header feed information straight into the AI Suite utility, allowing you to track coolant temperatures and the flow rate of the entire loop. ROG Maximus Z690 Hero features the most comprehensive cooling options ever.
