    ASUS ROG Zenith Extreme DDR4 AMD X399 E-ATX Gaming Motherboard

    M.2 U.2 X399 E-ATX HEDT Motherboard with onboard WiGig 802.11AD WiFi, USB 3.1, and AURA Sync RGB Lighting


    More than a decade ago, ROG started with the original Crosshair motherboard for Athlon 64 FX CPUs. Our history began on AMD's high-end desktop platform, and now with its X399 chipset & Ryzen Threadripper CPU, we have ROG Zenith Extreme. Named after the highest point in the celestial body, the new Extreme brings advanced overclocking, cooling and lighting together to push the limits of dream builds. ROG Zenith Extreme is locked, loaded and ready to rip.


    Customize your own favorite LED effects with Aura, the intuitive lighting-control software, to cast a stunning multi-color glow across your build via the ROG Zenith Extreme's brilliant built-in RGB LEDs or attached RGB strips via the two onboard 4-pin headers ─ all lights will perform in perfect synchronization. Fire up Aura and enjoy the creative freedom of nine different lighting schemes! 


    ROG Zenith Extreme includes a dedicated addressable RGB header* that connects to compatible lighting strips, fans, coolers, and compatible PC cases — all to create a new world of illumination possibilities. Aura software offers an array of effects for addressable gear, and the Aura SDK takes things to the next level — allowing developers to control each LED individually, unleashing infinite lighting possibilities!


    ROG Zenith Extreme comes equipped with all-new LiveDash — a built-in OLED panel that displays useful information and customizable graphics. During the power-on, self-test (POST) phase, LiveDash shows key progress stats, in simple language and via traditional POST codes. Then, during normal operation, the vibrant panel shows a choice of CPU frequency, device temperatures, fan speeds or information from the Water Cooling Zone, You're also able to customize the default LiveDash GIF, so it'll display your own image or animation.


    ROG Zenith Extreme's DIMM.2 module is a bundled expansion card that allows two M.2 drives to be connected via a DDR4 interface. You can then add a memory fan to direct cool air to the M.2 drives to prevent throttling, ensuring maximum performance.



    ROG Zenith Extreme is equipped with an M.2 heatsink integrated into the PCH heatsink. With a huge cooling surface, the heatsink perfectly chills an inserted M.2 SSD — for maximum performance and reliability. Featuring a stylish angular design replete with an awesome glowing ROG eye logo, the heatsink adds a beautiful touch to the build, while the T-sensor allows you to connect a thermal probe and monitor M.2 drive temps in real-time.


    ROG Zenith Extreme comes with ROG Areion, the high-performance expansion card that plugs you into the new era of 10Gbps networking! Made especially for the demanding requirements of power users, content creators, and others who push the envelope, Areion is named after the mythological horse with legendary speed. The large heatsink keeps the card cool while transferring massive files like 4K videos, and support for intermediate 2.5G and 5G connectivity lets you step up to faster networks for maximum flexibility. Choose the bandwidth that meets your needs and enjoy ultra-low latency at any speed. 


    The ASUS Fan Extension Card makes it easy to add three additional fans and a complimentary array of thermal probes to your setup. And each header can be comprehensively controlled fan via the UEFI BIOS or our Fan Xpert 4 software. It's ideal for high-performance air or water-cooled PCs — providing maximum cooling for marathon gaming sessions. 


    ASUS ROG 5-Way Optimization sorts all the complex settings with a click, for instant, highly controllable performance boosts. This exclusive ROG technology dynamically optimizes essential aspects of your system, based on real-time use — so you get superb CPU performance, everyday energy savings, ultra-stable digital power, cool and quiet fans and networking settings that are tailored for the apps that you are using. In short, 5-Way Optimization ensures that your PC is perfect for gaming, entertainment, and productivity.

    • Games run swiftly and smoothly with high-performance and prioritized bandwidth.
    • Fans stay whisper-quiet for everyday computing, and ensure extreme cooling efficiency when gaming.
    • Stutter is eliminated for smooth-running apps, even under heavy loads.
    • Energy waste is reduced so you'll save money and the earth.


    ROG has elevated onboard audio once again on the flagship Zenith Extreme.  The front panel headphone output features a SABRE9018Q2C integrated DAC/AMP capable of reaching -115dB THD+N to provide playback that conveys all the subtlety and nuances of the audio track.  The improved resolution derived from the ESS Hyperstreamâ„¢ DAC architecture expands the soundstage to give a better sense of positioning. Beyond resolution, the 121dB DNR provides an extremely low noise-floor, further accentuating dynamics and punch.  And, when you want to shift priority to musicality, our Sonic Studio software provides an array of EQ options, allowing the sound signature to be tweaked to suit your cans.



    Sonic Studio now 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.


    ROG Zenith Extreme's, and the fact that it's pre-fitted makes it even easier to install the motherboard into a chassis. It also has a sleek new design that makes it look as good as it performs.


    ROG Zenith Extreme is ingeniously engineered with two distinct backplates, providing both form and function. The small, strong backplate prevents the motherboard from bending and bowing, ensuring that the voltage-regulator module's MOSFETs stay in direct contact for uninterrupted cooling and stable temperatures. The second, larger backplate is all about aesthetics: a style statement that's as bold as ROG Zenith Extreme is powerful.
