Asus CROSSHAIR VII HERO WI-FI X470 AMD Ryzen 2 ATX Motherboard - Socket AM4

ROG Crosshair VII Hero Series strikes the perfect balance for gamers and enthusiasts.
The dark and enigmatic aesthetics of the new Hero draws design cues from stealthy ninjas and allows you to strike from the shadows.
Those aesthetics are augmented by two pairs of Aura RGB and Addressable headers, plus onboard Aura LEDs, giving users the freedom to design and customize their rig in style.

Functionality-oriented upgrades include a pre-mounted I/O, and an onboard M.2 heatsink ensuring the DIY experience and consistent performance that gamers and enthusiasts demand. Don't be just any gaming motherboard - be a Hero.

2x2 802.11AC Wi-Fi MU-MIMO
The ROG Crosshair VII Hero Wi-Fi features 802.11ac Wi-Fi with 2x2 dual-band 2.4/5GHz antennas for up to 867Mbit/s* transfer speeds — and the very latest Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) technology to ensure that every connected user** experiences the best wireless and online speeds.

Maximize Potential via the External Clock
The Crosshair VII Hero motherboards feature an external clock generator capable of generating two adjustable clock signals to the system. This allows the motherboard to individually control the base clock of the CPU to squeeze out every last drop of performance.

DDR4 OC Strength in Numbers
The exclusive ASUS D.O.C.P. (DRAM OC Profiles) feature enables higher DDR4 memory frequencies, lower latencies and enhanced stability while overclocking, extending all the way to extreme overclocking conditions.

USB 3.1 Front Panel Connector
Thanks to the USB 3.1 Gen 2 front panel connector, you can now achieve the highest data transfer speed on the ROG Crosshair VII Hero series motherboards. USB-C is the future-proof reversible connector best utilized on the front panel for quick and easy access.

Dual PCIe Gen3 m.2 + NVMe RAID Ready
ROG Crosshair VII Hero Series motherboards are equipped with dual PCIe Gen 3 x4 M.2 slots, offering NVMe SSD RAID support and a great performance boost.

Watercooling Zone
With the new watercooling zone, temperatures and flow rates can be read directly into DIP5—allowing peace of mind to know that everything is functioning properly, while saving the hassle of installing third-party hardware.

Fan Control - Fan Xpert 4
Individual fans can now be linked to multiple sensors, including the GPU diode on compatible graphics cards. This allows system cooling to respond to varied workloads, like gaming sessions that disproportionately heat up the GPU and rendering tasks that hammer the CPU.

GameFirst IV
GameFirst IV optimizes network traffic for faster, lag-free online gaming — and now we've added Multi- Gate Teaming to team all your networks for maximum bandwidth and the smoothest-ever gameplay.
