Drawing from a heritage that spans more than a decade, the latest incarnation of the Maximus series augments Intel's Z370 chipset with all the enhancements that enthusiasts crave. Each model sports a unique blend of features to cater to a distinct audience, yet the core ROG DNA ripples through the entire lineup. From overclocking and cooling options to satiate die-hard fanatics, to clean, refined aesthetics that are tastefully accented by RGB lighting, Maximus X-series motherboards bring the octane to your build.

LEADING CUSTOMISATION

AURA SYNC

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 headers. And it can all be synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-capable ASUS hardware.

RGB LIGHTING PERFECTED

Maximus X Code features a pair of onboard 5050 RGB headers and a pair of addressable headers that can be connected to compatible lighting strips, fans, coolers, and PC cases, creating a new world of illumination possibilities.

*The addressable RGB header supports WS2812B addressable RGB LED strips (5V/Data/Ground), with a max power rating of 3A (5V) and a max of 60 LEDs.
*The Aura RGB-strip header supports 5050 RGB LED strips with a max power rating of 3A (12V). For maximum brightness, strip length should not exceed 3m.
*RGB and addressable RGB LED extension cables are included. LED strips and Aura Sync-compatible devices are sold separately.

INFINITE LIGHTING POSSIBILITIES 

ASUS Aura SDK allows developers to take full advantage of the vast eco-system of Aura Sync-capable PC gear. From in-system illumination to peripherals and beyond, the SDK provides an evolving toolkit of options to enhance games and software with RGB lighting. Game effects, alerts, and audio can all be portrayed via Aura-compatible hardware, creating subtle or dazzling visual cues to augment the action. There's also scope to map system parameters such as temperatures to lighting, giving enthusiasts new ways to monitor vital information.

OPTIMAL COOLING

M.2 HEATSINK

ROG Maximus X Code is equipped with a stylish, angular M.2 heatsink that keeps your SSD cool. By efficiently dissipating heat away from the M.2 area, ROG Maximus X Code minimises the possibility of the performance-sapping throttling that can happen when drives become too warm. The heatsink's angular design adds an eye-catching touch to any build, while the T-sensor detects temperatures in the vital M.2 area for instant monitoring.

ALL THE CONNECTIVITY YOU NEED

2X2 802.11 AC WIFI WITH MU-MIMO

ROG Maximus X Code is engineered with 2x2 dual-band 2.4/5GHz antennas for up to 867Mbps* transfer speeds — and the very latest Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) technology** to ensure that every connected user experiences the best wireless and online speeds!

* Actual speed varies, and Wi-Fi hotspot feature operates at 802.11a/b/g/n Windows 10 does not currently support Wi-Fi hotspot functionality.
** Requires MU-MIMO-ready client.

INTEL ETHERNET

Featuring the latest Intel® Ethernet(I219-V) for faster, smoother gaming. Intel Ethernet controllers have a natural synergy with their CPUs and chipstes, reducing processor overhead and offering exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput, so there's more power for games and other tasks.

PUMPED-UP THROUGHPUT. BEST SURGE PROTECTION

LANGUARD

LANGuard means safer, more reliable connections for your battles! Advanced signal-coupling technology and premium surface-mounting processes join forces to protect your ROG Maximus X Code motherboard's Ethernet connection, plus ESD Guards — our electrostatically guarded and surge-protected components that have 1.9X-greater tolerance to static electricity and 2.5X-greater protection (up to 15kV) against surges!

TEAM UP TO BANISH LAG

GAMEFIRST IV

GameFirst IV optimises network traffic for faster, lag-free online gaming — and now we've added Multi-Gate Teaming to team up to four networks for maximum bandwidth and smooth gameplay. You'll also enjoy all-new Intelligent mode, which automatically compiles a database by parsing new app data to ensure that every game is optimised for the best performance.

DUAL PCIE GEN3 M.2

ROG Maximus X Code supports two M.2 drives, delivering lightning-fast transfer speeds of up to 32Gbps. The first slot sits neatly below the PCH heatsink, and accommodates M.2 drives of up to 110mm in length (type 22110). The second slot is placed at the lower edge of the board and is oriented for vertical mounting, taking advantage of chassis airflow to help keep your high-performance M.2 drive cool.

BEST GAMING PERFORMANCE

DDR4 OVERCLOCKING STRENGTH IN NUMBERS

ASUS OptiMem preserves memory signal integrity by routing memory traces and vias to the optimal PCB layer, and our T-Topology layout ensures time-aligned signaling by balancing trace lengths between memory slots. These enhancements lead to more headroom for overclocking and improved stability, allowing memory speeds of DDR4-4133 and beyond with all slots populated.

PRO CLOCK

A dedicated base-clock (BCLK) generator that extends CPU and memory overclocking margins. This custom solution works in tandem with the TPU to enhance voltage and base-clock overclocking control, providing the flexibility to extract every ounce of performance from 8th Generation Intel® processors.

5-WAY OPTIMISATION

ONE-CLICK OVERCLOCK AND COOLING, DONE!

One click is all you need to take care of all that complex tuning. ASUS 5-Way Optimisation makes your PC smart. It dynamically optimises essential aspects of the system, providing overclocking and cooling profiles that are tailored for your rig.

  • An automated tuning utility that optimises overclocking and cooling profiles for your unique system configuration.
  • Fans stay whisper-quiet for everyday computing, and deliver optimal airflow when the system is crunching through CPU or GPU-intensive tasks.
  • All-new stress test that allows users to optimise and overclock for CPU or memory-centric workloads.

FLEXIBLE COOLING CONTROLS FOR AIR OR LIQUID

With Maximus X Code you have comprehensive control over fans, water pumps and even all-in-one (AIO) coolers, via either Fan Expert 4 or our award-winning UEFI. Whether you're cooling with air or water, Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. There's also an Extreme Quiet mode, which reduces all fan speeds to below the default minimum — keeping your system whisper-quiet when performing light tasks.

MEDIA-ACCLAIMED UEFI BIOS

The smoothest, slickest mouse-controlled graphical BIOS has been improved to make it even more gorgeous. Whether you're a PC novice or a seasoned overclocker, the EZ and Advanced Modes help you find your way, quickly and easily.

BEST GAMING AUDIO

SupremeFX

ROG's awesome SupremeFX audio technology has levelled up, delivering an exceptional 113dB signal-to-noise ratio on the line-in connection — and that means our best-ever recording quality. We've also added a low-dropout regulator for cleaner power delivery to the SupremeFX S1220 codec, an ESS® Sabre Hi-Fi ES9023P digital-to-analogue converter for superior front-panel output, and a Texas Instruments® RC4580 op-amp for high gain with low distortion — which all adds up to audio that envelops you as never before.

SONIC STUDIO III

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, allowing you to tailor acoustics to suit personal preferences or the characteristics of your headset.

SCAN AND DETECT TO DOMINATE!

SONIC RADAR III

Sonic Radar III features an evolved audio engine that processes sounds more accurately than ever, ensuring you're always aware of what's going on around you. A new on-screen arrow has also been added to help you pinpoint the enemy position instantly!

DIY FRIENDLY DESIGN

ROG ARMOR

STRONG ABS TOP COVER

A tough, thermoplastic top-plate helps to keep your build neat and tidy , and adds style that's both unique and understated.

PRE-MOUNTED I/O SHIELD

ROG's patent-pending pre-mounted I/O shield offers increased protection against electrostatic discharge of up to 12kV and is pre-fitted to make it even easier to install the motherboard. Its sleek new design that makes it look as good as it performs.
