ASUS ROG MAXIMUS VIII HERO ALPHA - motherboard - ATX - LGA1151 Socket - Z170

With 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.



Product Features
  • 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.
  • Champion-level audio from SupremeFX 2015
    Maximus VIII Hero Alpha's onboard audio isn't just good - it's as good as you can get! You benefit from the best gaming-audio inputs and outputs, with special shielded designs, and a collection of carefully selected professional-grade audio components, including an ESS ES9023P digital-to-analog converter (DAC) with Hyperstream technology, ultra-low-jitter clock, Nichicon capacitors, 2VRMS headphone amp, and Sonic SenseAmp that automatically detects and optimizes any headset for purest sound quality. SupremeFX 2015 also features intuitive Sonic Studio II, so you'll apply and enjoy different audio effects for perfect entertainment - plus Perfect Voice noise-cancellation technology for team conversations with total clarity!
  • Get performance, efficiently, digital power, Fan Control and even networking and audio tuning tailored for you - and the way you play
    You don't need to be an expert to max out gaming performance on your Maximus VIII Hero Alpha build's gaming performance - because 5-way optimization sorts all the complex settings with a click, for instant, highly-controllable performance boosts! The exclusive technology dynamically optimizes essential aspects of your system based on real-time use, so you get superb CPU performance, everyday energy savings, ultra-stable digital power, cool and quiet fans and even networking and audio settings that are tailored for the apps that you are using. In short, 5-way optimization ensures that your PC is perfect for gaming, entertainment, productivity or just about anything else.
  • Cooler by design
    Play quieter and cooler with advanced fan and water-pump controls for the ultimate in undisturbed gaming. With onboard thermal sensors and hardware-level 4-pin/3-pin PWM/DC mode detection, Fan Xpert 3 makes sure every fan achieves the best balance of high cooling performance and low noise, so you enjoy all the performance you demand with none of the racket.
  • ASUS Pro Clock technology
    Thought you'd taken overclocking as far as it could go? Meet ASUS Pro Clock, a dedicated base-clock (BCLK) generator. This custom solution works in tandem with the ASUS TurboV Processing Unit (TPU) to enhance voltage and base-clock overclocking control - providing an exciting new way to boost performance to extremes.
  • DDR4 overclocking strength in numbers
    ASUS T-Topology pushes DDR4 memory overclocking to over 3800MHz with all memory slots populated - and that means the best-ever gaming performance from your Maximus VIII Hero Alpha rig! Featuring a customized trace layout for reduced crosstalk and coupling noise, second-generation T-Topology ensures time-aligned signal transfer for improved memory stability and compatibility.
  • Media-acclaimed UEFI BIOS
    The smoothest, slickest mouse-controlled graphical BIOS has been improved to make it even more gorgeous. Whether you're a PC novice or a seasoned overclocker, the EZ and Advanced Modes help you find your way, quickly and easily.
  • Speed your game loads
    ROG's uniquely-intelligent technology effectively caches an entire storage device so that favorite games and apps launch at breakneck speeds, getting to work the moment it's activated. RAMCache turns milliseconds into microseconds to boost game-load times to stratospheric levels, and minimizes risk of data loss!
  • More throughput, less processing, faster online play
    ROG features the Intel Ethernet for faster, smoother gaming - always. Intel's LAN has the serious double advantage of reducing CPU overhead and offering exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput, so there's more power for your game and your gameplay.
