Power Delivery Enhancements

POWER DELIVERY ENHANCEMENTS

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.

1. 8-PIN PROCOOL II POWER CONNECTORS

Two ProCool II Power Connectors ensure a snug and reliable connection to the EPS 12V Power Lines.

2. 14+2
POWER STAGE

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

3.MICROFINE
ALLOY CHOKE
S

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

4. 10K BLACK
METALLIC CAPACITORS

Input and output filtering is provided by solid-polymer capacitors rated to last thousands of hours at high operating temperatures.

Cooler by Design

COMPREHENSIVE COOLING ZONE

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.


Thermometer sensors

MULTIPLE TEMPERATURE SOURCES

Each header can be set to monitor and react to three user-configurable thermal sensors for workload-based cooling, and all settings can be easily managed by Fan Xpert 4 or UEFI.

Unprecedented Thermal Dominance

Heatsinks

1. VRM
HEATSINK

A VRM heatsink is placed on the MOSFETs and chokes, and the embedded heatpipe connects to the integrated aluminium I/O cover.

2. M.2
HEATSINKS

Quad dedicated heatsinks keep up to four m.2 drives at their optimum operating temperature for consistent performance and reliability.​

3. L-SHAPED HEATPIPES

An L-Shaped heatpipe allows for rapid and even heat transfer from the VRMs.

4.HIGH-CONDUCTIVITY
THERMAL PAD

The high-quality thermal pad improves overall heat transfer from the system by bridging the heat generated by the power stages to the heatsink.

5. M.2
BACKPLATES

All M.2 slots feature backplate blocks that ensure high performance drives deliver peak performance even when the airflow is restricted.

6. CHIPSET
HEATSINK

A dedicated chipset heatsink draws heat away to maintain optimum operating temperatures.​

Support for up to Quad PCIe NVMe M.2

M.2 Support

PCIE 4.0 READY

The ROG Maximus XIII is equipped with four onboard m.2 slots, with two offering the latest PCIe 4.0 support for the latest GPUs and High-Speed SSDs.

The Future of Home-Networking

Networking

INTEL® WI-FI 6E (GIG+)

Onboard WiFi 6E technology takes advantage of the newly available radio spectrum in the 6 GHz band, providing up to three times the bandwidth of the 5 GHz band and up to seven 160 MHz bands to deliver ultrafast wireless networking speeds along with improved capacity and better performance in dense wireless environments.

DUAL INTEL 2.5 GB ETHERNET

Onboard Intel® 2.5 Gb Ethernet gives your wired connection a boost, with speeds that are 2.5 times faster than standard Ethernet connections for speedy file transfers, smooth lag-free gaming and high-res video streaming.

5-Way Optimization

OVERCLOCKING INTELLIGENCE

Take 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.

Fan Xpert 4

FLEXIBLE COOLING CONTROLS

With 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.

World Renowned UEFI BIOS

NOT JUST FOR VETERANS

The renowned ASUS UEFI BIOS provides everything you need to configure, tweak and tune your system. It offers intelligently simplified options for PC DIY beginners, as well as comprehensive features for seasoned veterans.

Advanced Mode

ADVANCED MODE

An intuitive Advanced mode offered via the UEFI lets you take complete control. A built-in search feature makes it easy to find options, and various Advanced functions let you intelligently make nuanced adjustments so you can dial in performance just the way you want.

Boost your Game with Ramcache III

asus RAMCACHE 3

LAUNCH YOUR APPS AT NECK BREAKING SPEEDS

RAMCache turns milliseconds into microseconds to boost game-load times. Fully compatible with the latest NVM Express storage options, its uniquely intelligent technology effectively caches an entire storage device so that favorite games and apps launch at breakneck speeds. Smart mode automatically caches all your storage devices to maximize your system's resources using an intuitive interface which displays real time drive information. RamCache III also allows you to efficiently check the health status of assigned memory.
