One-Click Overclock and Cooling
One click takes care of all that complex tuning. ASUS 5-Way Optimization makes your PC smart. It dynamically optimizes essential aspects of the system, providing overclocking and cooling profiles that are tailored for your rig.
The ROG Maximus X Hero is equipped with a stylish, angular M.2 heatsink that keeps your SSD cool. By efficiently dissipating heat away from the M.2 area, the ROG Maximus X Hero minimizes the possibility of the performance-sapping throttling that can happen when drives become too warm.
ROG’s SupremeFX audio technology delivers an exceptional 113dB signal-to-noise ratio on the line-in connection. We’ve also added a low-dropout regulator for cleaner power delivery, an ESS Sabre Hi-Fi ES9023P digital-to-analog converter for front-panel output, and a Texas Instruments RC4850 op-amp for high gain with low distortion.
