Comprehensive Cooling Controls

EXPERTLY TOOLED TOTALLY COOLEDROG Maximus XI Formula features the most comprehensive cooling controls ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS. CrossChill EK III lets you cool with air and water. The redesigned cooling channels provide wider copper, delivering up to 37.2°C-lower MOSFET temperatures on water, and the standard G1/4" threaded fittings mean CrossChill EK III easily fits existing setups — so you can enjoy efficient, quiet cooling with the minimum effort.

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

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.

5-Way Optimization

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 onboard intelligence as AI Overclocking,but goes further by running a Prime95 based stress test to deliver a result that's well-tuned from the get-go.

Fan Xpert 4

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

ASUS maximus z390 memory connectivity

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 Formula 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

Onboard 5G Ethernet with Wi-Fi

z390 gigabit intel ethernet

ASUS LANGUARDDesigned for the demanding requirements of power users and content creators who push the envelope, onboard 5Gbps Ethernet plugs you into a new era of home networking. With up to 5X the bandwidth of standard gigabit Ethernet, you'll enjoy streaming uncompressed 4K UHD videos and backups and file transfers that are faster than ever before. And there's also support for intermediate 2.5Gbps connectivity, allowing you to step up to faster networks for maximum flexibility. Choose the bandwidth that meets your needs and enjoy ultra-low latency at any speed.

Shielded Audio, Superior Sound

ROG Sonic Studio 3 Audio

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
