ROG SILKSCREEN LABELS

ROG Crosshair VII Hero wears an informative silkscreen that makes it easy to identify native ports for your drives and peripherals, and also which PCI Express and memory slots to populate for best system performance.

 

 

AURA SYNC

ASUS Aura offers full RGB lighting control with a variety of functional presets for built-in RGB LEDs and for lighting strips connected to the onboard RGB headers. And it can all be synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-capable ASUS hardware.

* 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 extension cables are included. LED strips and Aura Sync-compatible devices are sold separately.

 

 

AURA SYNC X PHILIPS HUE

ROG Crosshair VII Hero takes ASUS Aura into the home - and now it also lets you synchronize effects with Philips® Hue personal wireless lighting. Easily control your Hue light bulbs, strips and lamps from the simple Aura app , and create immersive illumination that extends beyond your rig to make the whole room part of your gaming experience.

 

 

OC DESIGN ASUS PRO CLOCK TECHNOLOGY

By default, all of Ryzen's major bus frequencies are derived from the same reference clock, limiting the control and flexibility needed to harness the full overclocking potential of the platform. ROG Crosshair VII Hero features a dedicated onboard clock generator that supplies dynamic reference clocks to the CPU cores and major subdomains, giving you the freedom to coax every MHz of headroom from the system.

 

 

DDR4 OVERCLOCKING STRENGTH IN NUMBERS

Whether you're gunning for high memory frequencies or tuning timings for the lowest latency, ROG Crosshair VII Hero provides the tools you need to exploit Ryzen's latent potential: carefully optimized trace pathways maintain signal integrity, and the acclaimed ROG firmware offers the necessary tweaks to ensure stability while maximizing memory performance. Load up with a high-density memory kit for heavy multitasking, or run a focused setup that delivers the bandwidth your favorite games and applications need. Any way you stack it, the Hero has you covered.

 

 

MEDIA-ACCLAIMED UEFI BIOS

The renowned ROG UEFI (BIOS) provides everything you need to configure, tweak, and tune your Ryzen-based rig. It offers intelligently simplified options for newcomers to PC DIY, as well as comprehensive features for seasoned veterans.

 

Designed for easy setup, the EZ Mode presents all the vital settings and stats on a single page. With guided wizards, drag and drop capability that takes the hassle out of complex tasks, and one-click convenience to apply important settings, your rig will be up and running in no time.

 

When you're ready for a deeper dive into the configuration of your system, delve into the UEFI's Advanced mode and take complete control. Each section is intuitively organized, and a built-in search feature makes it easy to find the options you need. Advanced functions are coded with the intelligence to adapt to your settings, and when you're ready to take charge, parameters have the granularity to dial in performance just the way you want.

 

 

COOLER BY DESIGN

ROG Crosshair VII Hero features the most comprehensive cooling controls ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS.

 

 

SUPREMEFX

ROG's SupremeFX audio technology has levelled up, delivering an exceptional 113dB signal-to-noise ratio on the line-in connection to provide 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 - all to deliver audio that envelops you as never before.

 

GAMEFIRST IV

GameFirst IV optimizes network traffic for faster, lag-free online gaming. New Multi-Gate Teaming brings together all your networks to create gargantuan bandwidth and smoothest -ever gameplay. parsing new app you'll also enjoy all-new Intelligent mode, which automatically compiles a database by data to ensure that every game is optimized for best performance.
