Drawing from a heritage that spans more than a decade, the latest incarnation of the Maximus series augments Intel’s Z370 chipset with all the enhancements that enthusiasts crave. Each model sports a unique blend of features to cater to a distinct audience, yet the core ROG DNA ripples through the entire lineup. From overclocking and cooling options to satiate die-hard fanatics, to clean, refined aesthetics that are tastefully accented by RGB lighting, Maximus X-series motherboards bring the octane to your build.

COOL TO THE MAX

The latest incarnation of the Maximus series leverages generations of knowledge to push the Z370 platform to the limit. Extensive overclocking options for novices and advanced users pair with cooling controls for AIOs and liquid loops to keep your high-performance rig perfectly chilled.

cool to the max
  • AIO PUMP

    A dedicated PWM/DC header for self-contained water-cooling setups.

  • 4-Pin PWM/DC fan

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

  • WATER Flow

    Allows for constant monitoring of the flow rate of entire loop.

  • WATER In/Out

    Allows for monitoring of temperature at the input/out of any component.

  • Water PUMP

    A dedicated header that can supply over 3A to high-performance PWM or DC water pumps.

leadingCUSTOMIZATION

LiveDash OLED

A built-in 1.3" OLED panel that displays useful information and customizable graphics. During the power-on, self-test (POST) phase, LiveDash shows key progress stats in simple language and via traditional POST codes. Then, during normal operation, the panel shows a choice of CPU frequency, device temperatures, fan speeds or information from the Water Cooling Zone. You're even able to customize the default LiveDash GIF, so that it'll display your own image or animation.

Infinite Lighting Possibilities

ASUS Aura offers full RGB lighting control with a variety of functional presets for the built-in RGB LEDs as well as strips connected to the onboard RGB headers. And it can all be synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-capable ASUS hardware.

ASUS AURA SYNC

RGB HEADERS

Onboard 5050 RGB headers and an addressable header that can be connected to compatible lighting strips, fans, coolers, and PC cases, creating a new world of illumination possibilities.

*Please note, number of headers varies by model.
*The addressable RGB header supports WS2812B addressable RGB LED strips (5V/Data/Ground), with a max power rating of 3A (5V) and a max of 60 LEDs.
*The Aura RGB-strip header supports 5050 RGB LED strips with a max power rating of 3A (12V). For maximum brightness, strip length should not exceed 3m.
*RGB and addressable RGB LED extension cables are included. LED strips and Aura Sync-compatible devices are sold separately.

OC DESIGN- ASUS PRO CLOCK II TECHNOLOGY

A dedicated base-clock (BCLK) generator that extends CPU and memory overclocking margins. This custom solution works in tandem with the TPU to enhance voltage and base-clock overclocking control, providing the flexibility to extract every ounce of performance from 8th Generation Intel® processors.

DDR4 OVERCLOCKING STRENGTH IN NUMBERS

ASUS OptiMem preserves memory signal integrity by routing memory traces and vias to the optimal PCB layer, and our T-Topology layout ensures time-aligned signaling by balancing trace lengths between memory slots. These enhancements lead to more headroom for overclocking and improved stability, allowing memory speeds of DDR4-4133 and beyond with all slots populated.

ONE CLICK OVERCLOCK AND COOLING, DONE!

PERFORMANCE, EFFICIENCY, DIGITAL POWER, FAN CONTROL AND EVEN NETWORKING – ALL TAILORED TO THE WAY YOU PLAY WITH 1-CLICK

Supreme FX

ROG's awesome SupremeFX audio technology has levelled up, delivering an exceptional 113dB signal-to-noise ratio on the line-in connection — and that means our best-ever recording quality. We've also added a low-dropout regulator for cleaner power delivery to the SupremeFX S1220 codec, an ESS® Sabre Hi-Fi ES9023P digital-to-analog converter for superior front-panel output, and a Texas Instruments® RC4580 op-amp for high gain with low distortion — which all adds up to audio that envelops you as never before.

SONIC STUDIO III

Sonic Studio III has an intelligent routing feature made for streaming, porting streams to different outputs to give you full control over who hears what — so you’re free to share your exciting in-game moments without worrying about frivolous DCMA takedown requests. Sonic Studio III also comes with app-level preferences for instant audio profiles, and improved noise filtering for conversations with total clarity.

SONIC RADAR III

Sonic Radar III is features an evolved audio engine that processes sounds more accurately than ever, ensuring you're always aware of what's going on around you. A new on-screen arrow has also been added to help you pinpoint the enemy position instantly.
