ROG Crosshair VIII Hero comes prepared with an optimized power-design layout and all the cooling headers you need to handle the prodigious power of the latest AMD Ryzen processors without performance-zapping thermal throttling.​



The monstrous compute power of multi-core processors necessitates a power circuit that quickly responds to massive current swings. Offering an array of 16 strategically paired power stages, the Hero's VRM is geared for any workload and all operating conditions.

Robust power delivery begins at the component level. All aspect of the ROG Crosshair VIII Hero's VRM is generously over-specified for the task.


ProCool II connectors makes sure of a snug and reliable connection to the EPS 12V power lines.


The VRM is comprised of 16 IR3555 PowIRstages, each rated to handle 60 amps.


All PowIRstage is accompanied by a high-permeability alloy-core choke rated to handle 45 amps.


Input and output filtering is offered by solid-polymer capacitors rated to last thousands of hours at high operating temperatures.



ROG Crosshair VIII Hero offers the most comprehensive cooling options ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS.

Each header can be set to monitor and react to three user-configurable thermal sensors for workload-based cooling. And all settings can be simply managed by Fan Xpert 4 or UEFI.​



Heatsinks are extremely essential for motherboards, as they absorb heat from critical areas to ensure components do not stagger due to overheating. With VRM, PCH and M.2 heatsinks, ROG Crosshair VIII Hero ensures effective and stable operation even when pushed hard.


Links to the IO heatsink via an embedded heat-pipe, increasing mass and surface area.


ROG Crosshair VIII Hero is prepared with a stylish M.2 heatsink that keeps your SSD cool. By efficiently dissipating heat away from the M.2 area, it reduces the possibility of the performance-sapping throttling that can happen when drives become too warm.


With twice the bandwidth via PCIe 4.0, the X570 platform poses greater thermal challenge than its X470 predecessor. The PCH heatsink has a dedicated fan to effectively combat temperature-induced throttling that can slow performance during sustained transfer.

The Crosshair VIII Formula


ROG offers you powerful tools that make optimizing your system fast and easy. For those who relish fine-grained control, the UEFI BIOS has a wealth of advanced options organized into intuitive categories that offer the ability to tweak every aspect of your system​.



Conventional motherboards use single-ended sensing tapped from a location that isn't perfect, leading to a large disparity between the actual voltage fed to the CPU and the value reported to software. The Hero offers a differential sensing circuit that simplifies overclocking and tuning by allowing you to track voltages more accurately.​

The Crosshair VIII Formula


AI Suite 3's dashboard-style control panel allows you to fine-tune almost every aspect of your system. Get the ultimate balance between performance, cooling, stability, and efficiency via one simple and intuitive interface.​


The TurboV Processing Unit (TPU) is an intelligent onboard micro-controller that offers an array of system-tuning features, including the ability to fine-tune voltages, monitor system stats and adjust overclocking parameters.



ROG Crosshair VIII Hero provides advanced connectivity to ensure seamless gaming experiences. With the latest ultrafast networking, including dual Ethernet with one 2.5G port, ROG Crosshair VIII Hero elimates all bottlenecks for online and LAN play, minimizing lag and providing an overall smoother experience. Additionally, the M.2 supports AMD StoreMI technology to maximize the speed of your SSD for quicker load times, and SupremeFX on-board audio provides superb sound, while saving a PCIe slot.​



ROG Crosshair VIII Hero offers the latest Intel® 2.5G Ethernet that offers a huge speed boost for local networking, such as transferring files between PCs or network-attached storage (NAS) devices. This Intel controller has a natural synergy with Intel processors and chipsets, minimizing CPU overhead and offering exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput – so there's more power for games and other tasks.


ROG Crosshair VIII Hero offers the latest Intel® Ethernet (I211-AT) ensuring data exchanges with your network and the outside world are fast and smooth. Intel LAN minimizes CPU overhead and increases TCP and UDP throughput, keeping more processing power.​​



Immerse yourself in sound with SupremeFX audio technology. Utilizing the S1220 codec, SupremeFX is the integrated-audio solution that's engineered to offer a flat frequency response for a neutral, detailed sound signature. And to ensure that pristine signature is perfectly preserved, the front-panel output is driven with dual op amps, providing sonics with the scale and authority to create virtual worlds via your gaming headset.



Dual PCIe 4.0 M.2 Slot support up to 22110 and offer NVMe SSD RAID support for an incredible performance boost. Create a RAID configuration with up to two PCIe 4.0 storage devices to enjoy the quickest data-transfer speeds on the 3rd Generation AMD Ryzen platform.


AMD StoreMI technology is a software utility that accelerates any drive for greater system responsiveness with reduced startup and software load times. It merges SSD performance with the affordability and capacity of an HDD by automatically moving frequently accessed data to dedicated SSD storage.​



ASUS Node is a proprietary bi-directional interface that enable ASUS motherboards to communicate with other system components, opening up a wealth of new options for system builders.​

The Crosshair VIII Formula



ROG offers a range of intuitive software that enables easy control of your advanced gaming hardware and ensures seamless component compatibility. From RGB lighting, networking and audio to storage optimization and more, ROG provides you the power to personalize your system just the way you want.​  



GameFirst V is an ROG-exclusive tool that optimizes network traffic and your connection for quicker, lag-free online gaming.
