Asus ROG Maximus XIII Hero Intel Z590 LGA 1200 ATX Gaming Motherboard
ROG Maximus XIII Hero continues to build on the legacy of its predecessors by packing upgraded power, smart cooling and lightspeed connectivity under a stealthy exterior. Bristling with renowned ROG features such as AI-enhanced controls and customizable Aura Sync illumination, the latest Hero is ready to take the helm of your high-end gaming build.
Intelligent software solutions help ensure that your system performs at its best. The latest ASUS AI-powered enhancements span four pillars of performance, including overclocking, cooling, networking and onboard audio, making advanced tweaks and optimization accessible to new recruits and savvy PC DIY veterans alike.
Tuning is now faster and smarter than ever before. ASUS AI Overclocking profiles the CPU and cooling to predict the optimal configuration and push each system to its limits.
Balance the thermals and acoustics of any build with a single click. A proprietary ASUS algorithm reduces unnecessary system noise by monitoring CPU temperatures and dynamically adjusting fans to optimal speeds.
GameFirst VI optimizes networking performance by allocating bandwidth in real time based on application usage scenarios and corresponding learning algorithms.
Two-Way AI Noise Cancelation
This utility leverages a massive deep-learning database to reduce over 500 million types of background noise from incoming or outgoing audio, helping ensure crystal-clear communication in games or calls.
With tailored power delivery and support for the latest high-performance memory, ROG Maximus XIII Hero easily handles the increased demands of Intel Rocket Lake processors. It features an intelligent VRM design that’s rated for 90 amps, plus quality components and memory layout optimizations to cater to enthusiasts looking to create a battle-ready rig with balanced performance.
A high-end battle station needs robust cooling to deliver peak performance. ROG Maximus XIII Hero employs an enlarged cooling array for the VRM and chipset, plus four M.2 sinks teamed with backplate blocks to wick heat away from critical components. That rugged foundation is backed by complimentary headers for fans, AIOs and liquid loops, paired with flexible control options that allow you to keep thermals in check at all times.
