Showcase - ASUS ROG Crosshair X670E Hero

We had the opportunity to examine the ROG Crosshair X670E Hero from ASUS. The Crosshair X670E Hero motherboard from ASUS is a powerful product. There are five M.2 slots on this new motherboard, two of which are PCIe 5.0 compliant and three PCIe 4.0 compatible. This motherboard includes two PCIe 5.0 16x slots and a single PCIe x1 slot.


ASUS has added Polymo Lighting, a huge number of Addressable RGB headers, and the company's newest SUPREMEFX ALC4082 CODEC audio technology to their X670E Hero motherboard to offer an extra wow factor. 


The X670E Hero's rear I/O has two USB4 ports, nine USB 3.2 Gen 2 connectors, a single USB 3.2 Gen2x2 port, HDMI output, a 2.5Gb ethernet port, and WiFi 6E antennae. There are normal audio connectors, a BIOS flashback button, and a clean CMOS button along with these inputs and outputs.



With PCIe 5.0 connectivity, you can use a wide range of high-speed ports right now, and you'll be able to use the fastest SSDs and GPUs when they come out. With link speeds that are twice as fast as PCIe 4.0, the new standard gives us enough space to add USB 3.2 Gen 22 ports to these boards and two USB4® ports to the ROG Crosshair X670E Hero. Since a lot of gamers use their PC's USB ports on the front panel to connect fast external storage, these motherboards have a USB 3.2 Gen 22 connector on the front panel. Need to charge other devices with those ports, too quickly? Combine the X670E Hero board with a case with a USB Type-C port on the front so that you can use Quick Charge 4+ to charge at 60W.


This hardware should be sufficient for most people to handle any use case you can throw at it, providing that ultra-advanced capabilities such as 10Gb Ethernet are not required. This motherboard's 18+2 teamed power stages, each rated for 110A, make it easy to give your CPU a lot of stable power. The circuitry is kept cool by large heatsinks built in, and a wide range of headers lets you set up your ideal cooling system.
