Teamed Power Architecture
Crafted For PerformanceToday’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 utilising teamed power stages to rapidly swing current, while maintaining exemplary thermal performance.
24+0 Power StagesThe VRM features 24 + 0 power stages, each rated to handle 105 amps.
8+8 PIN ProCool II Power ConnectorsDual ProCool connectors ensure a snug and reliable connection to the EPS 12V Power line.
Robust Power solution
MICROFINE ALLOY CHOKESEach power stage is accompanied by a high-permeability alloy-core choke rated to handle 45 amps.
SMD CAPACITORSInput and output filtering is provided by solid-polymer capacitors rated to last thousands of hours at high operating temperatures.
Push It To The Limit
DDR5 memory support
DDR5 DominationROG has a long legacy of flexing the fastest memory performance, and DDR5 is no outlier. Thanks to improved signal routing, now enthusiast-grade kits have been driven as far as 8 GT/s on the Maximus Z790 Apex, and who knows how far future DIMMs can go? Seasoned veterans can test their mettle by tinkering with the extensive array of tuning options in the UEFI.
Keep Your Components Cool
1. VRM HEATSINK ARRAYVRM heatsinks on the MOSFETs and chokes are connected by an embedded heatpipe to increase mass and surface area for dissipation.
2. M.2 heatsink and backplatesBoth onboard M.2 slots are thoroughly cooled with heatsinks and backplates for maximum cooling performance.
3. PCIE 5.0 M.2 CARD HEATSINKThe bundled PCIe 5.0 M.2 card wraps its slot in a massive heatsink to ensure adequate cooling for the most performant drives.
4. EXTENDED VRM AND M.2 HEATSINKAn extended heatsink helps further cool the VRM along with an M.2 drive.
5. ROG DIMM.2 CARD HEATSINKTwo additional M.2 slots are kept cool with the DIMM.2 card’s hefty heatsinks.
Superb Thermal Management
Multiple temperature sourcesEach 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.
4-pin fan headersIn addition to the pair of CPU fan headers, the Maximus Z790 Extreme features two chassis and two radiator headers, and each supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.
AIO Pump HeaderA dedicated PWM/DC header for self-contained water-cooling setups.
Water Pump+A dedicated header can supply over 3 amps to a high-performance PWM or DC water pumps.
Water in/outA dedicated header enables monitoring of temperatures at the input/output points of any component.
Water FlowA dedicated header enables constant monitoring of flow rate throughout the entire loop.
Ready for Lightning Speeds?
PCIe 5.0 ReadyFully embracing the new standard, the ROG Maximus Z790 Extreme offers abundant Gen 5 support to give unfettered bandwidth to the fastest SSDs and graphics cards available.
Two Onboard M.2 SlotsThe ROG Maximus Z790 APEX features two onboard PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots with heatsinks to keep your high-performance storage cool.
ROG DIMM.2The ROG DIMM.2 module allows you to easily mount two M.2 drives next to the memory slots, where its large heatsinks convect directly into the path of chassis airflow for optimal temperatures.
PCIe 5.0 m.2 card
PCIe 5.0 M.2 CardThe bundled ROG PCIe 5.0 M.2 Card offers access to a Gen 5-ready slot and robust heatsink coverage.
Expansion SlotsBoth of the x16 expansion slots have the PCIe 5.0 treatment to offer incredible speeds up to 64 GB/s for compatible devices. To bear the brunt of massive graphics cards, they are also protected with SafeSlot retention brackets, and the top slot can be released easily thanks to the Q-Release button.
Embrace Ultra-Fast Connectivity
WIFI 6E connectivity
WIFI 6EOnboard 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.
2.5G ETHERNETLow-latency gaming, speedy file transfers, and high-resolution video streaming are among the many perks of onboard Intel® 2.5 Gbps Ethernet.
Breathtaking Personalisation Options
ARMOURY CRATEArmoury 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.
SONIC STUDIO IIISonic Studio supports HRTF-based (head-related transfer function*) virtual surround for 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 and one-click presets, allowing you to tailor acoustics to suit personal preferences or the characteristics of your headset.
