Product information - Maximus XI HERO Wi-Fi, Intel Z390 Motherboard, RoG - Socket 1151

The Z390 chipset on the ASUS Maximus XI HERO Wi-Fi replaces Intel's Z370 chipset for their range of high-end 8th generation processors. Assitionally Z390 motherboards support Intel's new ninth gen Core series processors (Coffee Lake-S refresh). Also introduced are features like chip-side WiFi support - although a WiFi module must still be present - as well as native USB 3.1 support, meaning that these abilities no longer need to be provided by additional chips.

The Features of the ASUS Maximus XI HERO Wi-Fi Motherboard at a Glance:

  • 3x PCIe (3.0) x16 (x16/x8/x4) & 3x PCIe x1
  • 5x USB 3.1 (4x Type A & 1x Type C)
  • Total of 4x USB 3.0 and 6x USB 2.0 (internal & external)
  • 2x M.2 (2x PCIe 3.0 x4) / 6x SATA 6G
  • Supports max. 64 GB DDR4-RAM at 4.400 MHz
  • Integrated LED lighting with RGB-LED header
  • Integrated WiFi- and Bluetooth modules

The ASUS Maximus XI HERO Wi-Fi in Detail

The ASUS Maximus XI HERO Wi-Fi motherboard (ATX) includes a total of three PCIe x16 slots, one of which is connected to the chipset via a full 16 lanes, while the others use four/eight lanes. For additional upgrades and expansion cards, the motherboard offers three PCIe x1 slots. Additionally multiple graphics cards may be installed on the motherboard simultaneously via AMD CrossFire or NVIDIA's SLI technologies.

The four DIMM slots support up to 64 GB DDR4-RAM in Dual-Channel Mode. The Z390 chipset natively supports frequencies up to 2.666 MHz, and with overclocking, the ASUS Maximus XI HERO Wi-Fi is capable of driving RAM kits up to 4.400 MHz. For hard drives and SSDs, the board offers six SATA 6G connectors and two M.2 slots. Both M.2 slots are connected to the chipset with four PCIe lanes and support the NVMe protocol which enables data transfer rates of nearly 4 GB/s. This makes M.2 PCIe SSDs up to eight times faster than SATA 6G SSDs!

The I/O panel of the ASUS Maximus XI HERO Wi-Fi provides one USB 3.1 Type C connector. This new kind of USB Type C port is particularly slim and connectors can be plugged in either way. USB 3.1 or USB 3.1 Gen 2 can achieve speeds of up to 10 Gbit/s per port and USB ports with this standard generally support the fast charging function on smartphones and tablets. Furthermore, the I/O panel offers three further USB 3.1 Type A ports, two USB 3.0- and two USB 2.0 ports as well as an HDMI- and a DisplayPort connector. Internally the motherboard provides a generous selection of connectors and headers.

In terms of the special features of the ASUS Maximus XI HERO Wi-Fi , it has a striking cooler design and integrated digital RGB-LED lighting. Furthermore the motherboard includes a WiFi module compatible with the 802.11ac standard as well as Bluetooth 5.0 and premium audio quality thanks to the ESS ES9023P chipset. Antennae for the WiFi as well as an SLI Bridge are included with the motherboard.

Only compatible with 8th and 9th generation Intel CPUs!

    DD World - ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XI HERO (WI-FI) - Top board with everything?

    ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XI HERO (WI-FI) is exactly what you expect it to be. Simply an excellent motherboard for demanding home users in every respect. So, while the Core i5-9600K / i7-9700K and i9-9900K processors are definitely not, and leaving aside their incredible selling price, the Z390 board does not bring anything new, they are definitely better. Must be.

  • Guru3D - ASUS ROG Maximus XI Hero Wi-Fi

    ASUS is spot on with the new Maximus XI HERO. it is a very enjoyable motherboard with a refined BIOS. We like new VRM design and heatsinks that go along with it. A bit of a miss is that ASUS stuck towards 1 Gbps Ethernet. Realtek now has 2.5 Gbps available and Aquantia 10 Gbps Ethernet. The Z390 Maximus XI Hero certainly is a nice looking product, the board kicks in nicely with exactly the right amount of RGB LEDs, and once activated it's just a completely different board to look at. The LEDs give the product really nice looks.

  • TechTesters - Asus ROG Maximus XI Hero

    The Maximus XI Hero topped the list to be discussed for a few reasons. Not only is it a beautiful board, with a good power supply that will also meet a new i9 (more about that soon) and enough connections for practically everything that falls within the reasonable range. That plus a beautiful, not extremely exaggerated appearance will quickly lead to the conclusion that you want it (at least, if you share my opinion that this is wonderful).

    But actually the Hero is of course also a kind of icon. That name has been flagship for some time for the normal man, plates like the water-cooled Formula or the x-OC Gene are a niche, and for me it is the successor of my own Hero as well as the successor of what our recent go-to board has been for most of the component tests: the Maximus X Hero. An honor that a board only future if he can handle everything and also performs consistently regardless of what we connect to it, signs that are top without exaggerating.
