Now, it’s time for competitors to be warned and for gamers and enthusiasts to push the limits: The packed and pumped ROG Crosshair VI Hero Series motherboard is ready to defeat all challengers.

CROSSHAIR VI HERO

HOLLOW HEAT-SINK WITH RED-HOT STYLE

Our new heat-sink is finely engineered with an innovative perforated design for maximum heat dissipation. On its top are expertly angled facets that allow light from the platform controller hub to penetrate through — so your builds stand out unlike any other!

FULLY DOMINATE YOUR WATER – COOLING SYSTEM

ROG WATER COOLING ZONE

ROG’s innovative Water-Cooling Zone lets you monitor your cooling system like never before. ROG Water-Cooling Zone’s dual water-temperature headers and flow-rate header feed information straight into ROG’s intuitive Fan Xpert 4 utility ─ so you can stay on top of the heat and stay cool in every game!

EXTENDED COMPATIBILITY

READY FOR ANY AM4 OR AM3 COOLER

ROG Crosshair VI Hero has special mounting holes that are compatible with any AM4 or AM3 cooler/LN2 pot. Upgrade to a new AM4 cooler, or extend the life of your existing AM3 kit — the choice is yours!

MINGLIGHTING

AURA LIGHTING CONTROL

Customize your own favorite LED effects with Aura, the intuitive lighting-control software, to cast a stunning multi-color glow across your build via the ROG Crosshair VI Hero’s brilliant built-in RGB LEDs or attached RGB strips via the two onboard 4-pin headers ─ all lights will perform in perfect synchronization! Fire up Aura and enjoy the creative freedom of nine different lighting schemes.

OUTSHINE THE COMPETITION

ASUS Aura Sync technology makes ROG Crosshair VI Hero the control hub for your illumination ambitions — so it’s easy to synchronize incredible lighting effects between compatible components, including RGB LED strips, graphics cards, keyboards and even mice! Change all LEDs in unison or employ dynamic modes to flow the illumination effects smoothly across all synchronized devices.

BEST GAMING AUDIO

EXQUISITE AUDIO, INSIDE AND OUT

NEW SUPREMEFX CODEC

ROG’s awesome SupremeFX audio technology has levelled up, delivering an exceptional 113dB signal-to-noise ratio on the line-in connection and 120dB on line-out — and that means our best-ever recording quality! We’ve also added a low-dropout regulator for cleaner power delivery to the SupremeFX S1220 codec, an ESS® Sabre Hi-Fi ES9023P digital-to-analog converter for superior front-panel output, and a Texas Instruments® RC4580 op-amp for high gain with low distortion — which all adds up to audio that envelops you as never before.

INTUITIVE AUDIO-TUNING SUITE

SONIC STUDIO III

ROG’s Sonic Studio III audio effects station has been updated with an all-new routing feature to port streams to different outputs as well as app-level preferences for instant audio profiles and improved noise filtering for conversations with total clarity!

APP-SPECIFIC PROFILES

Apply customized audio settings to different applications, so everything you do is perfectly tuned to the way you want to listen.

NOISE FILTER

Automatically detects and eliminates unwanted background noises, ensuring that communications are loud and clear.

  • IMPROVED AUDIO ALGORITHM

    The new Sonic Radar III audio algorithm is now even more accurate, allowing enemies to be located with pinpoint precision regardless of the surrounding noise and chaos.

    Sonic Radar III is built around its all-new head-up display with an in-game three-dimensional arrow for a more intuitive experience.

  • AUDIO BOOST

    The new Audio Boost feature now allows enhanced audio to be heard directly.

  • AUDIO RADAR

    Redesigned radar based on adjustable sectors (4-16) makes the enemies’ position clearer and more direct

3D PRINTING

MAKE IT YOUR OWN

ASUS is the first motherboard manufacturer to support 3D printing, making it easy to customize your motherboard’s appearance and improve system performance with a range of printable parts.

EXCLUSIVE 3D MOUNT FOR EASY INSTALLATION

Dedicated 3D Mounts on the motherboard makes fitting 3D-printed parts easy. Using the same screws as M.2 drives and standard motherboard mounting holes, you can easily add nameplates, cable covers, or an M.2 fan holder.

*Products with the 3D Printing Friendly logo feature the specialized 3D Mount and are also bundled with an extra 3D Mount kit.

Performance

OC DESIGN

ASUS PRO CLOCK TECHNOLOGY

A dedicated base-clock generator designed for AM4 processors allows overclocked base clock frequencies up to or beyond 158MHz*. 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 extreme heights.

    • Base-clock overclocking range will vary according to CPU capabilities, cooling, motherboard support and tuning options. Ranges up to 650MHz are possible under some conditions.

DDR4 OVERCLOCKING STRENGTH IN NUMBERS

THIRD-GENERATION ASUS T-TOPOLOGY

With support for DDR4 memory you’re able to drive memory frequencies up to 3200MHz (and beyond when overclocked)! ASUS-exclusive T-Topology circuit design plus OC Socket provides superb memory-overclocking capability to unleash the full power of DDR4 by minimizing coupling noise and signal reflection. With innovative equidistant memory channels, it delivers the most balanced control and powerful overclocking compatibility. ASUS works with almost every DDR4 memory vendor to ensure the best compatibility.

ONE-CLICK OVERCLOCKING AND COOLING, DONE!

PERFORMANCE, EFFICIENCY, DIGITAL POWER, FAN CONTROL AND NETWORKING ─ TAILORED TO THE WAY YOU PLAY
