    Cool to the core

    Effective cooling is extremely important, even at stock speeds. That is why the Prime X299 Edition 30 allows consolidated cooling control of the entire system, even for the most hardcore rigs. It comes equipped with onboard heatsinks, an array of fan headers, the Fan Extension Card II, options for water pump and AIO headers.

    Actively Cooled Heatsink

    Since mass and airflow are critically important, our VRM heatsink is manufactured with skived, high aspect ratio thin fins. The hidden 40 mm fan turns on after 60°C. This combination offers optimal cooling for CPU-intensive tasks.

    M.2 Heatsinks

    Two M.2 slots are covered by heatsinks to combat temperature-induced throttling that can affect performance during heavy, sustained storage loads.

    Anti-drop screws minimize the risk of falling parts during heatsink removal.

    Stack Cool 3+

    2oz-copper layers shift heat away from critical components, reducing the temperature by up to 20°C.

    Backplate

    A reinforced backplate improves the stability of the board, and the included thermal pad efficiently directs heat away from the VRM and other components.

    Back to Cool to the core

    Cooler by design

    Prime X299 Edition 30 features the most comprehensive cooling controls ever, configurable via FanXpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS.

    • Multiple temperature sources
    • Dual pump headers
    • Smart protection
    • 4-pin PWM/DC fan
    • Each header can dynamically reference three thermal sensors, and via Fan Xpert 4 you can even map the temperature of supported ASUS graphics cards to optimize cooling for GPU- and CPU-intensive tasks.

    • A dedicated header that supplies over 3A for high-performance PWM or DC water pumps, plus a second dedicated header for AIOs.

    • A dedicated integrated circuit that protects each fan header from overheating and overcurrent.

    • Each onboard header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.

    Back to Cool to the core

    Fan Extension Card II

    Prime X299 Edition 30 bundles Fan Extension Card II, which adds six headers that are controllable via FanXpert 4. The card has three temperature-sensor headers to complement the one available onboard. More importantly, it comes with three thermistors that you can affix to different components. In addition to supplying extra headers for cooling, it has three primed for RGB LED strips.
