    For almost a decade, Republic of Gamers (ROG) has delivered exemplary design and performance to thrill the world's best gamers and PC enthusiasts. But our work has only just begun. With our pimped, pumped and packed Maximus VIII Hero Alpha motherboard, competitors be warned, gamers get set and enthusiasts prepare to push your limits — ROG is ready to accept all challenges!

    LIGHT UP AS EASY AS RGB

    AURA 4-PIN RGB-STRIP HEADERS & LIGHTING CONTROL

    Forget the faff of external RGB controllers! With ROG's Aura RGB Strip header, it's quick and easy to cast brilliant colors across your rig and room: Just slide standard 12V RGB strips onto the 4-pin Aura RGB-strip headers, then weave your lighting any way you like. Customize static, strobing and pulsating effects, or have the colors change in time with music or indicate CPU temperature.

    *The Aura RGB-strip header supports standard 5050 RGB LED strips with a maximum power rating of 2A (12V). For maximum brightness, strip length should not exceed 2m.
    *Two extension cables are included. RGB LED strips need to be purchased separately.
