The grueling demands of the mightiest AMD Ryzen™ 7000 Series processors are no match for the eighteen 110A-stage power solution of the ROG Crosshair X670E Hero. Its massive headroom opens up incredible overclocking potential, bolstered by a combo attack of unique ROG technologies and champion-level DDR5 speeds.
ROG OVERCLOCKING TECHNOLOGIES
Take Ryzen beyond the already impressive sum of its parts. Dynamic OC Switcher and Core Flex create additional frequency waypoints for single and multi-threaded workloads, allowing Ryzen to break boundaries and achieve peak performance in all games and apps.
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.
Comprehensive memory tuning options are the cornerstone of ROG motherboards. With the ROG Crosshair X670E Hero, you can extract all of the potential out of your DDR5 modules, regardless of if they're from an extreme-speed kit or an entry-level set that would otherwise be locked.
Every layer of the Hero's armor is painstakingly forged to keep it cool under stress. Enormous heatsinks have been strategically hewn to offer massive thermal headroom to the VRM, while both chipsets share a large central plate for widespread dissipation. Filling in the gaps, the M.2 slots have vast heat spreaders to let installed drives plow through intense PCIe 5.0 transfers without breaking a sweat.
COOLER BY DESIGN
The ROG Crosshair X670E Hero features an upgraded cooling solution.
VRM heatsinks and heatpipe
A VRM heatsink on the MOSFETs and chokes is connected to the aluminum I/O cover via an embedded heatpipe to increase mass and surface area for dissipation.
Three dedicated heatsinks keep up to four M.2 drives in the optimum operating temperature range for consistent performance and reliability.
High-conductivity thermal pads
A high-quality thermal pad is utilized between the power stages and heatsink, helping to improve heat transfer and reduce VRM operating temperatures. For future maintenance, a spare thermal pad is included in the product box.
The topmost M.2 slot features a backplate block to ensure that an installed high-performance drive delivers peak performance, even when airflow is restricted.
A dedicated heatsink draws heat away from both chipsets to maintain optimum operating temperature.
The ROG Crosshair X670E Hero bears the same mounting hole alignment as AM4 platforms, so it is backward compatible with many existing coolers, including all AIO offerings from ASUS and ROG.
The dual-chipset design of the ROG Crosshair X670E Hero brings a wealth of bandwidth for connected devices so that you can have it all. WiFi 6E, 2.5G LAN, and dual USB4 ports all grace the rear I/O, flanked by plenty of additional ports for all your devices. On-board SupremeFX audio delivers premium, immersive sound, now using an improved ESS quad-DAC amplifier. And under the hood, up to five PCIe M.2 drives can be loaded up for blazing fast load times and transfer speeds.
Fully embracing the new standard, the ROG Crosshair X670E Hero offers abundant Gen 5 support to give unfettered bandwidth to the fastest SSDs and graphics cards available.
USB 3.2 GEN 2X2 TYPE-C® FRONT-PANEL CONNECTOR WITH QUICK CHARGE 4+
USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 adds an additional lane that can boost Type-C data transfers with speeds of up to 20 Gbps. The port also features Quick Charge 4+ technology that can quickly charge devices up to 60W*.
* Requires a PCIe power supply cable to be plugged into the nearby 6-pin connector.
TWO USB4® TYPE-C® PORTS
Each USB4® port delivers up to 40 Gbps of bidirectional bandwidth for the latest super-speed devices and drives. External display support reaches up to 8K output if one of the ports is in use, or both can be employed for dual 4K displays.
Onboard WiFi 6E technology takes advantage of newly available spectrum in the 6 GHz band to provide up to seven 160 MHz channels for ultrafast throughput and better performance in dense wireless environments.
INTEL 2.5G ETHERNET
Onboard Intel® 2.5 Gbps Ethernet gives your wired connection a boost, with speeds that are 2.5 times faster than standard Ethernet connections for speedy file transfers, lag-free gaming, and high-resolution video streaming.
ROG SupremeFX audio technology delivers an exceptional 113 dB signal-to-noise ratio on the line-in connection to provide exceptional recording quality. There’s also a low-dropout regulator for cleaner power delivery to the SupremeFX ALC4082 codec, and an integrated ESS® ES9218 quad DAC capable of reaching -115dB THD+N for superior front-panel output. The combined solution allows for end-to-end 32-bit 384 kHz resolution playback that conveys all the subtlety and nuances of each audio track.
The ROG Crosshair X670E Hero provides a myriad of intuitive and flexible tools to optimize every aspect of your system.
AI SUITE 3
The AI Suite 3 dashboard contains a set of intuitive controls that boost CPU performance while maintaining system stability.
The renowned ROG UEFI (BIOS) provides everything you need to configure, tweak, and tune your rig. It offers intelligently simplified options for newcomers to PC DIY, as well as more comprehensive features for seasoned veterans.
ACCURATE VOLTAGE MONITORING
Conventional motherboards use single-ended sensing tapped from a location that isn't ideal, leading to a large disparity between the actual voltage fed to the CPU and the value reported to software. The ROG Crosshair X670E Hero features a differential-sensing circuit and delicate IC that simplify overclocking and tuning by allowing you to track voltages more accurately.
Illuminating the I/O shroud of the ROG Crosshair X670E Hero is a colorful microstructural array called Polymo Lighting. Two stylish patterns are available for builders to tinker with in Armoury Crate and sync up with the rest of their system for a brilliant display of individuality.
GROW YOUR GAMING WORLD WITH AURA SYNC
Up your game with complementary Aura Sync enhanced aesthetics, featuring preset lighting effects that can be easily synchronized across compatible ROG graphics cards, monitors, keyboards, and mice to give your setup a unified look.
Armoury Crate is a software utility designed to give you centralized control of supported gaming products, making it easy to tune the look and feel of your system. From a single intuitive interface, Armoury Crate helps you customize RGB lighting and effects for compatible devices and synchronize them with Aura Sync to create a unified lighting scheme across your system. In addition, Armoury Crate’s Fan Xpert4 tool provides comprehensive control over fans, water pumps and all-in-one (AIO) coolers.
