EXTREME POWER & PERFORMANCE
All the headers and controls needed for complex fan setups and custom loops, and large heatsinks to keep high-speed drives and power components at optimum temperatures. Deploy your choice in CPU and GPU cooling and rock menacing horsepower with minimal noise.
Take system bandwidth to the extreme with future-ready ports for graphics, storage, and peripherals, and light up network connections with ultraspeed WIFI and Ethernet. Plug in to your heart’s content and then get deeper into the game with high-fidelity onboard audio.
Uniquely you. Customizable lighting and onboard displays allow you to subtly accent system components or boldly cast a unified theme through your build.
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.
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 utilizing teamed power stages to rapidly swing current, while maintaining exemplary thermal performance.
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.
ASUS ROG Strix Maximus Z790 Extreme
Every PCIe lane and I/O port made available for your choice in cutting-edge hardware. Heavyweight heatsinks and cooling options to tame the thermals of any and all configurations. And the overclocking chops to easily take Intel 13th Gen processors well beyond 6GHz.
Intel Z790 performance gloriously raised to the absolute Maximus.
