8th & 9th Gen IntelCompatible CPUs
Cooler by Design
COMPREHENSIVE COOLING ZONEROG Maximus XI Code features the most comprehensive cooling controls ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS.
MULTIPLE TEMPERATURE SOURCESEach header can be set to monitor and react to three user-configurable thermal sensors, for workload based cooling. All easily managed by Fan Xpert 4 or UEFI.
Tune it Your Way with AI Overclocking
INTELLIGENT CONTROLASUS AI Overclocking makes automatic tuning faster and smarter than ever before. Available in Windows or directly through the UEFI, it profiles the CPU and cooling to predict the optimal configuration for each individual system. ASUS have created a proprietary algorithm that evaluates the capabilities of your CPU. The onboard intelligence also watches system vitals like temperatures, fan speeds, and power draw to gauge cooling performance.
OVERCLOCKING INTELLIGENCETake care of complex tuning with just one click. ASUS 5-Way Optimization is a system-wide tuning utility that overclocks the processor and tunes fan speeds to ensure the best balance between cooling and acoustics. The automated CPU tuning feature of 5-Way Optimization leverages the same on-board intelligence as AI Overclocking, but goes further by running a Prime95 based stress test to deliver a result that's well-tuned from the beginning.
FLEXIBLE COOLING CONTROLSWith the ROG MAXIMUS Series you have comprehensive control over fans via Fan Xpert 4 or the media-acclaimed UEFI. Whether you are cooling with air or water, Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. Extreme Quiet mode reduces all fan speeds to below the default minimum assuring your system stays whisper-quiet when performing light tasks.
Excellent Memory Capabilities
INTEGRATED OPTIMEM II TECHNOLOGYWhether you're gunning for high memory frequencies or tuning timings for the lowest latency, ROG Maximus XI provides the tools you need to exploit the Coffee Lake architecture's full potential: carefully optimized trace pathways maintain signal integrity, and the acclaimed ROG firmware offers the necessary tweaks to ensure stability while maximizing memory performance. Load up with a high-density memory kit for heavy multitasking, or run a focused setup that delivers the bandwidth your favorite games and applications need. Any way you stack it, the Code has you covered. OptiMem II tech carefully maps memory signal pathways across different PCB layers to reduce vias and also adds shielding zones that significantly reduce crosstalk
Intel Gigabit Ethernet with Wi-Fi
ASUS LANGUARDROG MAXIMUS Gaming motherboards feature Intel Ethernet (I219-V), ensuring data exchanges with your network and the outside world are fast and smooth. Intel LAN reduces CPU overhead and increases TCP and UDP throughput, keeping more processing power. Featuring advanced signal-coupling technology and high-tolerance components, LANGuard provides consistent Ethernet performance and greater protection against static electricity and power surges.
Shielded Audio, Superior Sound
SONIC STUDIO III PROVIDES CRYSTAL QUALITY SOUNDSImmerse yourself in sound with SupremeFX audio technology. Utilizing the S1220A codec, SupremeFX is the integrated-audio solution that's engineered to provide a flat frequency response for a neutral, detailed sound signature. And to ensure that pristine signature is perfectly preserved, the front-panel output is driven with dual op amps, delivering sonics with the scale and authority to create virtual worlds via your gaming headset. Sonic Studio supports HRTF-based (head-related transfer function*) virtual surround for VR headsets, casting an immersive aural landscape that draws you deeper into the action. The intuitive Sonic Studio interface also offers a range of EQ options and one-click presets, allowing you to tailor acoustics to suit personal preferences or the characteristics of your headset.
ASUS Aura Sync RGB Lighting
EFFORTLESS SYNCHRONIZATION WITH ALL YOUR COMPONENTSThe ASUS Aura ecosystem is in the ascendancy, with an extensive and growing list of ASUS products now offering Aura Sync compatibility — along with loads of compatible accessories and kits available through partners. ROG MAXIMUS Series motherboards deliver sterling performance and superior aesthetics to Outshine the Competition. ASUS Aura offers full RGB lighting control with a variety of functional presets for the built-in RGB LEDs as well as strips connected to the onboard RGB header — and it can all be synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-capable ASUS hardware.
Enhanced UEFI BIOS
EASILY FIND YOUR WAY WITH EZ AND ADVANCED MODESThe UEFI BIOS is an early waypoint on any PC-building journey, and ROG MAXIMUS Series has one of the best in the business. The EZ mode presents all the vital settings and stats on a single page making it incredible easy to overclock a CPU to improve performance or even configure a RAID array for faster data retrieval and backups. Whether you're a PC novice or a seasoned overclocker, EZ and Advanced modes will help you quickly find your way, quickly and easily.
EZ MODEThe wizard in EZ mode makes short work of settings basics like the time and date, as well as more intricate settings like fan parameters and SATA port identification.
ADVANCED MODE WITH SEARCH FUNCTIONWhen you're ready for a deeper dive, Advanced mode enables full control over every aspect of the motherboard — with a built-in Search function to find the setting you need in the blink of an eye.
