MAXIMUS XIII HERO
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 Motherboard
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.

AI Overclocking
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.

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.

PERFORMANCE
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.

Teamed Power Architecture
Today's CPU architectures place incredible demands on motherboard power design by transitioning from deep power-saving modes, going from lower-power mode to full load in an instant. The latest ROG VRM architecture rises to the challenge by utilizing teamed power stages to rapidly swing current, while maintaining exemplary thermal performance.

ASUS became the first manufacturer to implement phase-doublers with the A8N32-SLI Deluxe motherboard, back in 2005. The board's VRM was lauded for elegantly overcoming the power handling capabilities of components that were available at the time while also reducing voltage ripple. Those benefits led to phase-doublers becoming universally accepted in the industry, and they are still used for similar purposes today.

However, today’s CPUs now pack more cores than their predecessors, and the latest instruction sets allow them to crunch computationally dense workloads at an incredible pace. In addition, they consume less power at idle and can transition between load states much more quickly. These improvements necessitate a re-evaluation of power-design priorities because phase-doublers add a propagation delay that hampers transient response.

Fortunately, the latest integrated power components can handle higher currents than the devices of yesteryear, making it possible to implement a simple circuit topology that isn't hamstrung by the processing lag of phase-doublers. That's why ROG Maximus XIII Hero utilizes teamed power stages to deliver higher burst current per phase, while maintaining the thermal performance of phase-doubled designs.

Each VRM component serves a specific purpose. PWM controllers and phase-doublers control the circuit, and the power stages do the heavy lifting from an electrical and thermal standpoint. That's why ROG Maximus XIII Hero utilizes 16 power stages. The power stage sits at the top of Infineon's lineup and features a low RDSON to reduce switching and conduction losses, helping to improve overall thermal headroom.

8-pin ProCool II power connectors
Two ProCool connectors ensure a snug and reliable connection to the EPS 12V power lines.

14+2 power stages
The VRM is comprised of 14 (90 amp) power stages for Vcore and 2 (70 amp) power stages for the secondary voltage rails.

MicroFine alloy chokes
Each Power stage is accompanied by a high-permeability alloy-core choke rated to handle 45 amps.

10K Japanese-made black metallic capacitors
Input and output filtering is provided by solid-polymer capacitors rated to last thousands of hours at high operating temperatures.

ASUS OptiMem III
With proprietary memory trace layout tweaks that improve signal integrity and mitigate noise, OptiMem III allows memory kits to run at lower latencies, reduced voltages, and operate at higher frequencies. Stack ROG Maximus XIII Hero with your favorite modules and maximize the throughput of the 11th Gen Intel Core Rocket Lake processor for applications that demand massive bandwidth.

COOLING
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.
