Featuring support for 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen™ CPUs, on-board, Realtek® 2.5 Gbps LAN and PCIe 4.0, coupled with an overhauled metallic design and loaded with renowned ROG features, it's the perfect foundation for your AMD Ryzen rig.

OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE

BOOSTED PERFORMANCE, NO BOTTLENECKS?

ROG Crosshair VIII Hero comes equipped with an optimised power-design layout and all the cooling headers you need to handle the prodigious power of the latest AMD Ryzen processors without performance-zapping thermal throttling.?

POWER DESIGN THAT BUCKS TRENDS 

The monstrous compute power of multi-core processors necessitates a power circuit that rapidly responds to massive current swings. Featuring an array of 16 strategically paired power stages, the Hero's VRM is geared for any workload and all operating conditions.

HEATSINKS

Heatsinks are extremely important for motherboards, as they absorb heat from critical areas to ensure components do not stagger due to overheating. With VRM, PCH and M.2 heatsinks, ROG Crosshair VIII Hero ensures efficient and stable operation even when pushed hard.

OPTIMISATION

UNCOMPLICATED SYSTEM TUNING?

ROG gives you powerful tools that make optimising your system fast and easy. For those who relish fine-grained control, the UEFI BIOS has a wealth of advanced options organised into intuitive categories that provide the ability to tweak every aspect of your system?.

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 Hero features a differential sensing circuit that simplifies overclocking and tuning by allowing you to track voltages more accurately.?

Performance Level Up

AI Suite 3's dashboard-style control panel lets you fine-tune almost every aspect of your system. Get the best balance between performance, cooling, stability, and efficiency via one simple and intuitive interface.

CONNECTIVITY

ULTRAFAST CONNECTION

ROG Crosshair VIII Hero offers advanced connectivity to ensure seamless gaming experiences. With the latest ultrafast networking, including dual Ethernet with one 2.5G port, ROG Crosshair VIII Hero removes all bottlenecks for online and LAN play, minimising lag and providing an overall smoother experience. Additionally, the M.2 supports AMD StoreMI technology to maximise the speed of your SSD for faster load times, and SupremeFX on-board audio provides superb sound, while saving a PCIe slot.?

REALTEK 2.5G LAN

ROG Crosshair VIII Hero features the latest Intel® 2.5G Ethernet that offers a huge speed boost for local networking, such as transferring files between PCs or network-attached storage (NAS) devices. This Intel controller has a natural synergy with Intel processors and chipsets, reducing CPU overhead and offering exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput – so there's more power for games and other tasks.

INTEL ETHERNET

ROG Crosshair VIII Hero features the latest Intel® Ethernet (I211-AT) ensuring data exchanges with your network and the outside world are fast and smooth. Intel LAN reduces CPU overhead and increases TCP and UDP throughput, keeping more processing power.

SupremeFX

Immerse yourself in sound with SupremeFX audio technology. Utilising the S1220 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.

UNTHROTTLED TRANSFER SPEED

Dual PCIe 4.0 M.2 Slot support up to 22110 and provide NVMe SSD RAID support for an incredible performance boost. Create a RAID configuration with up to two PCIe 4.0 storage devices to enjoy the fastest data-transfer speeds on the 3rd Generation AMD Ryzen platform.

AMD STOREMI

AMD StoreMI technology is a software utility that accelerates any drive for better system responsiveness with reduced startup and software load times. It combines SSD performance with the affordability and capacity of an HDD by automatically moving frequently accessed data to dedicated SSD storage.

ASUS NODE CONNECTOR?

ASUS Node is a proprietary bi-directional interface that allow ASUS motherboards to communicate with other system components, opening up a wealth of new options for system builders.?

PERSONALISATION

THE POWER TO PERSONALISE

ROG provides a range of intuitive software that enables easy control of your advanced gaming hardware and ensures seamless component compatibility. From RGB lighting, networking and audio to storage optimisation and more, ROG gives you the power to personalise your system just the way you want.? 

GAMEFIRST V NETWORK CONTROL

GameFirst V is an ROG-exclusive tool that optimises network traffic and your connection for faster, lag-free online gaming. Select the best Wi-Fi channel for maximum stability and minimum interference, team your gateways and keep tabs on bandwidth-hogging apps, all from an intuitive interface that enables easy, on-the-fly adjustments.

Armoury Crate

Armoury Crate is a new software utility designed to give you centralised control of supported ROG gaming products. From a single intuitive interface, Armoury Crate lets you easily customise RGB lighting and effects for every compatible device in your arsenal and synchronise them with Aura Sync for uni?ed system lighting effects. The software also provides control of settings for a select and growing number of ROG products, including keyboard and mouse preferences as well as laptop overclocking and fan speeds, making it easier to tune the look and feel of your system. Armoury Crate even features dedicated product registration and ROG news areas to help you stay in touch with the ROG gaming community.

Motherboard came out of the ESD packaging. This was bought from CCL (brand new) clearly not. You'd think for a 350.00 motherboard would include spare screws. Screws are missing from the box and standoffs too. Contacted ASUS support in hopes I get something back.

Not the best value for money but an excellent motherboard nonetheless. It has lots of connectivity on the rear I/O as well as 2 NVME slots and plenty of SATA. It also has a lot of high quality components to allow for overclocking. The pre-fitted I/O shield was a nice touch as well. My only gripe would be that it doesn't have USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type A Front header support.
