CUSTOMIZATION 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
*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.
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 minimizes 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.
COOLER BY DESIGN
ROG Maximus X Code features the most comprehensive cooling controls ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
ONE-CLICK OVERCLOCK AND COOLING, DONE!
One click is all you need to take care of all that complex
tuning. ASUS 5-Way Optimization makes your PC smart. It dynamically optimizes
essential aspects of the system, providing overclocking and cooling profiles
that are tailored for your rig.
・ An automated tuning utility that optimizes 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 optimize 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.
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-analog 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.
Overwolf is a clever, unobtrusive overlay that keeps you in the game and allows you to browse the Web, email, IM, stream or record while you play. The overlay features color-matched ROG skins that show you're part of an elite pack. Grab it now from the Overwolf Appstore!
