Cooler by Design

The ROG Maximus Z790 Dark Hero features an upgraded cooling solution.
  1. VRM and aluminum I/O heatsink

    A VRM heatsink on the MOSFETs and chokes is connected to the aluminum I/O cover via an embedded heatpipe to increase mass and surface area for dissipation.

  2. M.2 heatsinks and backplates

    Large aluminum heatsinks provide extensive surface area to cool mounted M.2 drives, and each of the three onboard slots has a dedicated backplate for additional heat dissipation.

  3. High-conductivity thermal pads

    Each thermal pad improves overall heat transfer from the system by bridging the heat generated by the power stages to the heatsink. For future maintenance, a replacement thermal pad can also be found in the package.

  4. Metal backplate

    A metal plate spans the underside of the ROG Maximus Z790 Dark Hero, establishing a reinforced platform for smoother DIY PC building.

  5. Chipset heatsink

    A dedicated heatsink draws heat away from the chipset to maintain optimum operating temperature.

  • WIFI 7

    Next-gen WiFi 7* chipset introduces all-new ultrawide 320 MHz channel bandwidth in the 6 GHz band and 4096 QAM, delivering up to 2.4X ultra-fast WiFi speeds**. The revolutionary Multi-Link Operation (MLO) provides a more stable WiFi connection and lower latency, unlocking the realms of the unknown in gaming, streaming, and industrial IoT.

    Learn more about Multi-link Operation (MLO) and WiFi 7 technology.

    *WiFi 7 features require onboard WiFi chipset, WiFi AP, and WiFi 7-supported operating systems to support the corresponding features. The 320 Mhz in the 6 GHz band may be unavailable in some regions / countries due to regulatory restrictions. Expected support for Multi-Link Operation (MLO) will be available later this year (October 2023). Please visit the ASUS support page for more information.

Asus ROG Dark Hero Review - 14900k Performance - Undervolting Benchmarks & Gaming

I do like the fact that the motherboard still comes with at least a single display connector so we have a HDMI connector built on top that's probably not going to be useful for gaming because if you're buying a motherboard like this you can have a dedicated graphics card but it's very useful for doing troubleshooting when you have a graphics card issue

We're building the ULTIMATE Gaming PC equipped with the latest Intel Core i9 14900K, an ROG RTX 4080 and 32 GB of DDR5 at 8000MHz, all installed in the latest ROG case, the Hyperion!

My new PC GAMER 2024 : AMAZING 🤯🤯🤯

Today I'm going to talk about these six new Z790 motherboards from ASUS.

最終形態みたいな自作PC【ASUS Hyperion】[超猫拳]

The ROG RYUJIN III 360 ARGB is the flagship liquid cooler from ASUS ROG. This is no ordinary liquid heatsink, in fact, it is able to push cooling performance to the max while also winking at the look, which matches well with modern builds.The product was tested on a ROG Maximus Z790 Dark Hero motherboard, ensuring excellent performance.

Motherboard used for cpu testing

The ROG Maximus Z790 Dark Hero was used in the video to explain the differences between the new Z790 Refresh and the 'old' Z790 and Z690.

The latest generation of Intel 14th Raptor Lake (Refresh) processors has arrived on the market and with it the choice of new components. There are several premium motherboards on the market where Asus has some of the most desirable models such as the ROG Maximus Dark Hero (Z790 chipset / LGA 1700 socket). ​

New INTEL is the reason to buy AMD...

Will the Ryujin III 360 cool the new 14th generation Intel? And what boards do we have for it?

The ROG Maximus Z790 Dark Hero board, as the successor of last year's Hero model, brings more than cosmetic novelties. This includes redesigning the lower part of the board and fitting as many as five M.2 slots, new coolers for them and then finally a new WiFi 7 network.
