  • ASUS has made two nice innovations here, including screwless, flip M.2 mounting and a GPU latch release button that you can press when you can't reach the lock to remove the graphics card.

  • The most beautiful plus in terms of design is the Polymo Lighting screen used in the new series. This screen, where mini patterns are created with various colors, highlights the design on its own.

  • I think there is a wonderful thing called Q Release on the motherboard, when you press it, it unlocks the first PCI Express slot.

  • Especially the colored screens called "Polymo Lighting" on the mosfet and chipset coolers reveal a really stylish image.

  • Congratulations to ASUS, after Q latch, they added PCI Express latch (Q Release), they are improving more and more every day.

  • TUF Gaming B660-Plus WiFi meets the needs of the new generation. The motherboard did not forget to add PCIe 5.0 support, which comes with 12th generation Intel processors.

  • This motherboard is a beast!

  • One of the best motherboards for the new Intel 12 Gen plataform.

  • Very good performance

  • In the role of the motherboard - a magnificent ASUS ROG Maximus Z690 Hero, with the wildest cool power system, support for PCIe 5.0, three M.2 drives and a huge heatsink, and even with RGB backlight on top!

  • The new motherboards are supported by DDR4 and DDR5 - I have both options. But we will leave the comparison of motherboards for separate videos.

  • In my opinion, this is a gaming PC for 2022 with top parameters, top hardware, which demonstrates simply phenomenal results.

  • Here is a complete "stuffing" - top components, PCI-Ex 5.0 and support for DDR5​

  • I was very impressed by ASUS’s thinking about the comfortability of users and their innovation of PCIe Q-Release button and the ASUS m.2 Q-Latch

  • Best in class for new generation!

  • Best board for i9 12900k with DDR5 and PCIe Gen 5!

  • Video review from the channel konsumer

  • To make the test even better, I added an even more powerful ASUS ROG MAXIMUS Z690 HERO motherboard and of course the same Kingston DDR5 RAM, as well as the Kingston KC3000 SSD.

  • Finally Intel 12th Gen Core Series CPUs and matching Z690 Motherboards are available and I can't imagine a much better 1st time experience with the platform than on the ROG MAXIMUS Z690 HERO (Well, maybe I can, on the ROG MAXIMUS Z690 APEX :) )

Media Reviews

  • The ASUS ROG Maximus Z690 Hero is poised to do so much more than running the new Intel 12th Generation processors at stock settings. It has effectively kept its VRM temperature cool even in our burn-in tests, which means that it could bring even more power to the CPU when needed in overclocked scenarios

  • PCIe 插槽 Q-Release,是在主機板當中加入一顆按鈕,按下後會釋放 PCIe 插槽的卡扣;這問題主要是解決,安裝大型空冷散熱器、顯卡背板太厚、或者主機板中間 M.2 散熱片過高,導致要拆下顯卡時按不到卡扣不好拆卡的狀況。

  • We like its very unusual RGB design. We find strong overclocking capabilities dedicated to CPU and memory. On this point, Asus offer a large variety of personalization, very rich to the point of getting lost in this BIOS full of options.

  • The review embargo is finally over and we can finally show some data from our early findings with the latest Intel Core i9-12900K. For this test, we’ve compared it against the previous-gen Intel Core i9-11900K, as well as the highest-end offer from AMD, the Ryzen 9 5950X so we can get some basic idea on what kind of performance improvement to expect from the 12th Gen Intel Core i9-12900K.

  • ROG Maximus Z690 HERO, a board loaded with all the latest and that has not left any detail to chance so that the new generation of Intel processors work in an outstanding way and without any complication for the user.


    SPAIN 11/04/2021
  • Maximus Z690 Hero 很貼心的提供 LGA 115x / LGA 1200 散熱器扣具孔,但由於 LGA 1700 插槽連同 CPU 的整體厚度縮減了 1mm,所以若要使用舊版扣具,請務必確認散熱器的結構有辦法讓接觸面與 CPU 上蓋密合。

  • 做為新一代頂級主機板代表,各種上等的用料和規格對各家板廠來說都只是最基本的功課,而ROG Maximus Z690 Hero最難能可貴的地方就在於它在堆料的過程中,還注意到了「體驗」上的需要,為產品加入多種貼心小功能,包含從上一代導入的Q-Latch免螺絲SSD固定工具,以及本次新增的Q-Release按鍵、Flex Key+Retry按鈕組合等,都能在組裝電腦的時候增添更多的便利,就好像是這塊主機板是為自己量身打造一般顯得格外親切,讓我們不自覺的就被這徹底被這樣的的細心與用心征服,成為貢獻信仰之力的一員~

  • ROG Maximus Z690 HERO 不論從第一眼外觀或拆解後看,都能感受到華碩在用料上毫不手軟的霸氣。20 +1 + 2 相供電設計,預期也能滿足想使用 AI 控制,或是手動進階超頻的使用者。還有便利的 ROG Hyper M.2 SSD 介面卡、與 Q-Release 按鈕,給使用者帶來更多的便利。

  • ROG Maximus Z690 Hero 主機板這次針對經常安裝顯示卡的第一組 PCIE x16 插槽還有一個特殊設計,在過去插拔顯示卡的時候,都需要按下 PCIE x16 插槽釋放卡榫,才能順利拔出顯示卡,但是在第一組 M.2 SSD 插槽上方散熱片越來越高的狀況下,在 SSD 散熱片與顯示卡兩者『峽谷』間的卡榫往往很難按。ROG Maximus Z690 Hero 主機板這次做了一個相當貼心的設計,在 USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 Type-C 前面版連接埠旁有一個按鈕開關設計,透過鋼索連動 PCIE x16 插槽釋放卡榫,只要按下按鈕,就能用鋼索拉動 PCIE x16 插槽釋放卡榫,直接將卡榫拉至釋放狀態,方便的取下顯示卡。


    TAIWAN 10/28/2021
  • USB-C 連接埠的 Thunderbolt 4 已經成為 ASUS ROG 系列主機板的一個標的,但 Apex 主機板上就沒有導入,可能意外,但也不意外,畢竟 Apex 的屬性與 Hero 等 ROG 主機板不相同;其他可以見到的 I/O 配置有 Intel 2.5Gb 乙太網、Intel Wi-Fi 6E 以及 HDMI 端子等,感覺有點不夠奢華,但這只是 ROG Maximus 系列中的 Hero 主機板。
