The ASUS Z790 motherboard series has many features and designs, ensuring that you may choose an overclocking-ready board that meets your demands and budget. The ROG Maximus Z790 Extreme and the ROG Maximus Z790 Hero are intended for those individuals who like unorthodox aesthetics and features.
The look of the ROG Maximus Z790 Hero is a study in contrasts. Its sweeping black surfaces form a captivating landscape of shadows and angles. The illumination in the PMMA nameplate shows out against this backdrop. Exclusive lighting effects make use of the dual-layered lighting design, which allows two distinct patterns to be presented at the same time.
A slew of enthusiast-grade features nicely complements the ROG Maximus Z790 Hero's forceful appearance. Dual Thunderbolt 4 connectors on the back panel are ready to support next-generation peripherals at full speed, and next-generation Realtek audio paired with an ESS ES9218 Quad-DAC for front-panel connections delivers crisp, clear gaming audio regardless of the headset or speakers you plug into your PC.
Three Gen 2 addressable RGB LED headers and one classic four-pin lighting header flawlessly synchronise your build's illumination using Aura Sync.
