Teamed Power Architecture

Modern CPU architectures up the ante for motherboard power design by transitioning from deep power saving modes to full load almost instantaneously. Our latest VRM architecture rises to the challenge by utilizing teamed power stages to rapidly swing current, while maintaining exemplary thermal performance.

Cooling Heatsinks

  • 1

    Active cooling VRM heatsink
    Custom Delta Superflo fans located within the heatsink kick on after 60° C and allow the Rampage VI Extreme Encore to handle sustained power draw of over 500 watts.

  • 2

    Aluminum I/O cover
    An aluminum I/O cover is connected to the primary heatsink via an embedded heatpipe, increasing mass and surface area.

  • 3

    Aluminum heatsink cover
    The heatsink cover is crafted from pure aluminum to efficiently cool the two onboard M.2 drives.

  • 4

    DIMM.2 heatsinks
    The ROG DIMM.2 module now passively cools M.2 drives with metal heatsinks that also keep your build looking clean.

  • 5

    Solid steel backplate
    A steel, electro-galvanized, cold-rolled coil construction backplate strengthens the motherboard to prevent bending, and adds additional mass to siphon heat from the VRM.

  • 6

    PCH heatsink
    A PCH heatsink blends seamlessly with the aluminum heatsink cover and prominently features the ROG logo.

AI Overclocking

ASUS AI Overclocking makes automatic tuning faster and smarter than ever before. Available in Windows or directly through the UEFI, it profiles the CPU and cooler to predict the optimal configuration for each individual system.

Storage

Four M.2 slots let you fully utilize the Intel VROC and NVMe RAID to achieve ultimate SSD storage speeds.

VROC

The exclusive ROG DIMM.2 module allow you to take advantage of the Intel Virtual RAID on CPU (VROC) feature* by connecting two M.2 drives in RAID configuration. With VROC, your RAID arrays are easily configured to be bootable, and traditional DMI bottlenecks are eliminated.
*Additional purchase of Intel VROC hardware key required for RAID 1, 5 or 10

PCH RAID

Wired directly to the X299 PCH, the two onboard M.2 slots can be used in chipset-based RAID configurations to improve storage performance or provide a layer of redundancy.
