Psyche up and engage the Hero overclocker in you, with onboard intelligence to scan, predict, and adapt CPU performance parameters, and tools to command and track system vitals.


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.


Conventional motherboards use single-ended sensing tapped from a location that isn't ideal, leading to a large disparity between the actual voltage fed to the CPU and the value reported to software. The ROG Maximus Z790 Hero features a differential-sensing circuit and delicate IC that simplify overclocking and tuning by allowing you to track voltages more accurately.

Stacked with titanic heatsink arrays and surging with controls for liquid- and air-cooled setups, the Hero is fully armed to combat the fiery heat of the latest processors and high-speed drives.

1 - VRM and aluminium I/O heatsink
A VRM heatsink on the MOSFETs and chokes is connected to the aluminium I/O cover via an embedded heatpipe to increase mass and surface area for dissipation.

2 - M.2 heatsink and backplates
Large aluminium heatsinks provide extensive surface area to cool mounted M.2 drives, and each of the three onboard slots has a dedicated backplate for additional heat dissipation.

3 - High-conductivity thermal pads
Each thermal pad improves overall heat transfer from the system by bridging the heat generated by the power stages to the heatsink. For future maintenance, a replacement thermal pad can also be found in the package.

4 - Solid steel backplate
A plate of electro-galvanised steel strengthens the spine of the ROG Maximus Z790 Hero to prevent bending.
5 - Chipset heatsink
A dedicated heatsink draws heat away from the chipset to maintain optimum operating temperature.

Next-gen connectivity for graphics, storage, peripherals, and networking, plus high-definition audio for all types of setups - it all combines to create a Hero that’s connected with now and the future.

PCIE 5.0
Fully embracing the new standard, the ROG Maximus Z790 Hero offers abundant Gen 5 support to give unfettered bandwidth to the fastest SSDs and graphics cards available.

Each port delivers up to 40 Gbps of bidirectional bandwidth for the latest super-speed devices and drives. Both ports can be employed for up to two external 4K displays, and PCIe bandwidth extends to up to 32 Gbps.

Onboard WiFi 6E technology takes advantage of newly available spectrum in the 6 GHz band to provide up to seven 160 MHz channels for ultrafast throughput and better performance in dense wireless environments.

Low-latency gaming, speedy file transfers, and high-resolution video streaming are among the many perks of onboard Intel 2.5 Gbps Ethernet.

Flexible utilities and firmware provide everything needed to optimise the performance of your system loadout.

AI Cooling II
Balance the thermals and acoustics of any build with a single click. A proprietary ASUS algorithm slashes unnecessary noise while running a quick stress test, and then monitors CPU temperatures to dynamically adjust fans to optimal speeds.

This utility leverages a massive deep-learning database to reduce over 5 million types of background noise from incoming or outgoing audio, helping ensure crystal-clear communication in games or calls.

GameFirst VI optimises networking performance by allocating bandwidth in real time based on application usage scenarios and corresponding learning algorithms. The latest update includes dedicated support for GeForce NOW to ensure the lowest latency possible during intense game streaming sessions.

Illuminating the I/O shroud of the ROG Maximus Z790 Hero is a colourful microstructural array called Polymo Lighting. Two stylish patterns are available for builders to tinker with in Armoury Crate and sync up with the rest of their system for a brilliant display of individuality.

Up your game with complementary Aura Sync enhanced aesthetics, featuring preset lighting effects that can be easily synchronised across compatible ROG graphics cards, monitors, keyboards, and mice to give your setup a unified look.
