    Asus Prime X299 Edition 30 LGA 2066 ATX Motherboard

    The new, special Prime X299 Edition 30 celebrates three decades of ASUS motherboard development. This high-end desktop combines cutting-edge performance with our signature features, including a powerful VRM tailored for overclocking, intuitive cooling control, next-gen connectivity, and extensive customization. It also has a brand-new Smart Control Console with an external OLED.

    Get the most out of all your cores

    Intel®'s high-end desktop platform raises the stakes with updated Intel Core™ X-Series Processors that boast cores, cache, and bandwidth. The Prime X299 Edition 30 is ready for the additional processing power that plows through CPU-intensive tasks, and the extra bandwidth allows you to add more GPUs and NVMe SSDs to accelerate a wide range of work..

    Robust Power Design

    The LGA 2066 socket is compatible with the latest Intel Core X-Series Processors with up to 18 cores, over 44 PCI Express® lanes, and 165-watt thermal design power (TDP). Those specs require serious power, especially if you're overclocking, so the Prime X299 Edition 30 is equipped with a premium power solution that includes 16 power stages that line up neatly along the top edge of the PCB. The power stages are cooled well enough to sustain a staggering up to 544 W output, which is more than enough to overclock 18-core CPUs into truly extreme territory.

    Multi-GPU support

    Fully loaded takes on a new meaning when you have over 44 PCI Express lanes stemming from the CPU. Those lanes can be split in an x16/x16/x8 configuration spanning the board's trio of PCIe x16 slots, allowing you to load up on GPUs to accelerate an increasingly diverse array of work.


    Achieve speed with onboard M.2

    Professional applications require fast solid-state storage, which is why the Prime X299 Edition 30 is equipped with three M.2 slots that are compatible with the latest NVMe SSDs. All slots support longer 110 mm drives, and they can be configured into bootable RAID arrays connected directly to the CPU via Intel VROC technology.

    Thunderbolt 3

    Type-C ports

    Experience blistering speeds and any-way-up connectivity

    High-speed external storage is required for many workstations, so Prime X299 Edition 30 integrates Thunderboltâ„¢ 3 with up to 40Gbps of aggregate interface bandwidth. The rear I/O panel has dual Thunderbolt 3 Type-C ports that support data in addition to DisplayPort 1.4 output. Up to six devices can be daisy-chained from one Thunderbolt 3 port, with the provision of up to 15W of power for fast-charging devices connected in this way.

    USB 3.2 Gen 2 front-panel connector

    Future-proof connectivity

    Plenty of USB ports are provided to support high-end rigs loaded with peripherals, including a front-panel header with faster USB 3.2 Gen 2 connectivity for compatible cases.

    Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200

    Integrated Wi-Fi up to 2.4Gbps and large coverage

    The Prime X299 Edition 30 comes with the latest Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200, which is compatible with 802.11ax. Otherwise known as Wi-Fi 6, the new networking protocol pushes theoretical peak bandwidth up to an incredible 2.4 Gbps. Perhaps more importantly for power users, it's optimized for more efficient operation on crowded networks with a lot of competing traffic.

    Aquantia AQC-111C 5G Ethernet

    Accelerated, built-in networking

    Prime X299 Edition 30 has 5Gbps Ethernet onboard to deliver up to 5X the bandwidth of standard gigabit Ethernet. You'll enjoy streaming uncompressed 4K UHD videos without stutter, and backups and file transfers that are faster than ever before. There's also support for intermediate connections, so it's easy to choose your ideal bandwidth and benefit from ultra-low latency at any speed up to 5Gbps.

    Intel Ethernet

    More throughput, less CPU usage and great gaming experiences

    The latest Intel I219-V Ethernet has the advantage of reducing CPU overhead and offering exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput for faster, smoother data transfer.

    Cool to the core

    Effective cooling is extremely important, even at stock speeds. That is why the Prime X299 Edition 30 allows consolidated cooling control of the entire system, even for the most hardcore rigs. It comes equipped with onboard heatsinks, an array of fan headers, the Fan Extension Card II, options for water pump and AIO headers.

    Actively Cooled Heatsink

    Since mass and airflow are critically important, our VRM heatsink is manufactured with skived, high aspect ratio thin fins. The hidden 40 mm fan turns on after 60°C. This combination offers optimal cooling for CPU-intensive tasks.

    M.2 Heatsinks

    Two M.2 slots are covered by heatsinks to combat temperature-induced throttling that can affect performance during heavy, sustained storage loads.

    Stack Cool 3+

    2oz-copper layers shift heat away from critical components, reducing the temperature by up to 20°C.


    A reinforced backplate improves the stability of the board, and the included thermal pad efficiently directs heat away from the VRM and other components.

    Tune it your way

    Comprehensive controls form the foundation of the ASUS Prime series. The Prime X299 Edition 30 packs flexible tools to tune every aspect of your system to deliver the performance that you desire.

    AI Overclocking

    ASUS AI Overclocking makes automatic tuning faster and smarter than ever before. Available in Windows or directly through the UEFI, it profiles the CPU and cooling to predict the optimal configuration for each individual system.

    Little things make a big difference

    We pay careful attention to all the little details that improve your overall experience, from integrating a flashing utility directly into the UEFI to simplifying firmware updates or displaying your system vital signs. Prime X299 Edition 30 provides the tools you need to personalize your build and stay on top of things.

    Pre-mounted I/O Shield

    Set up without slip-ups

    Form meets function in the pre-mounted I/O shield that we pioneered with the ROG series. Now available on Prime X299 Edition 30, this feature streamlines the installation process for budding builders and savvy enthusiasts alike.


    A multi-purpose button

    The FlexKey maps the rarely used Reset button to a different function. Instead of leaving the button set to a dated function, you can reassign it to change performance profiles, boot directly into the UEFI, toggle Aura Sync lighting, and much more.

    BIOS FlashBackâ„¢

    Update your BIOS without CPU and DRAM

    The Prime X299 Edition 30 supports USB BIOS FlashBackâ„¢, which can perform low-level firmware updates using only a power supply and a USB stick with the required file.

    ASUS Node

    A header to keep ahead

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

    Intel Optane memory ready

    Intel Optaneâ„¢ is a revolutionary non-volatile memory technology supported by Prime X299 Edition 30. Intel Optane memory modules accelerate attached storage to reduce boot and load times, so everything feels faster and more responsive.

    Intel X299 chipset

    The Intel X299 chipset supports LGA 2066-socket Intel Core X-Series Processors. It provides improved performance by utilizing serial point-to-point links, allowing increased bandwidth and stability. Additionally, X299 provides a maximum 10 USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports, 8 SATA 6 Gbps ports and up to 32 Gbps M.2 support for faster data retrieval.
