The Crosshair VIII Hero

Featuring support for 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen CPUs, on-board Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax), Realtek 2.5 Gbps LAN and PCIe 4.0, coupled with an overhauled metallic design and loaded with renowned ROG features, it's the perfect foundation for your AMD Ryzen rig.

OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE

BOOSTED PERFORMANCE, NO BOTTLENECKS

ROG Crosshair VIII Hero comes equipped 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.

POWER DESIGN SOLUTION

POWER DESIGN THAT BUCKS TRENDS

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

MEMORY

OPTIMEM III

DDR4 4800+ MHZ (O.C.)

Infused with proprietary memory trace layout tweaks that improve signal integrity and mitigate noise, Optimem III allows memory kits to run at lower latencies, reduced voltages, and operate at higher frequencies. Stack the Hero with your favorite modules and maximize Matisse throughput for applications that demand massive bandwidth, or balance infinity fabric and memory performance for a diverse range of workloads.

COOLER BY DESIGN

COMPREHENSIVE COOLING ZONE

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

HEATSINKS

HEATSINKS

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

ACTIVE CHIPSET HEATSINK

ACTIVE CHIPSET HEATSINK DESIGN

PCle 4.0 provides twice the bandwidth for data flowing through the chipset, which creates more heat than the previous generation.
The Hero features an actively cooled heatsink to prevent throttling during sustained transfers.
