Outshine the Competition
A well-tuned enthusiast system deserves a matching aesthetic. ASUS Aura offers full RGB lighting control with a variety of functional presets for the built-in RGB LEDs as well as strips connected to the onboard RGB headers. And it can all be synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-capable ASUS hardware.
ROG Strix X299-XE Gaming features a duo of onboard 5050 RGB headers and an addressable header that can be connected to compatible lighting strips, fans, coolers, and PC cases, creating a new world of illumination possibilities. It also comes with a ROG addressable strip.
The latest high-core-count Intel Core i7 and i9 CPUs consume serious amounts of power – so ROG Strix X299-XE Gaming is equipped with serious VRM cooling. Featuring a high-mass, finned heatsink, the expansive surface area dissipates heat efficiently. And, to push the platform as far as you desire, we've even included a bracket that allows you to mount a bundled fan to accelerate the airflow.
Perfected Cooling for Unleashing Performance
ROG Strix X299-XE Gaming motherboards are equipped with an M.2 heatsink integrated into the PCH heatsink. With a huge cooling surface, the M.2 heatsink perfectly chills an inserted M.2 SSD – for consistent performance and reliability. Featuring a stylish angular design, the M.2 heatsink adds a beautiful touch to the build, while the T-sensor detects temperatures in the vital M.2 area for instant monitoring.
One-Click Overclock and Cooling, Done!
One click takes care of all that complex tuning. ASUS 5-Way Optimization makes your PC smart. It dynamically optimizes essential aspects of the system, providing overclocking and cooling profiles that are tailored for your rig.
- An automated tuning utility that optimizes overclocking and cooling profiles for your unique system configuration.
- Fans stay whisper-quiet for everyday computing, and deliver optimal airflow when the system is crunching through CPU or GPU-intensive tasks.
- All-new stress test that allows users to optimize and overclock for CPU or memory-centric workloads.
Flexible Cooling Controls for Air or Liquid
With ROG Strix X299-XE Gaming you have comprehensive control over fans, water pumps and even all-in-one (AIO) coolers, via either Fan Expert 4 or our award-winning UEFI. Whether you're cooling with air or water, Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. There's also an Extreme Quiet mode, which reduces all fan speeds to below the default minimum – keeping your system whisper-quiet when performing light tasks.
Cooler by Design
ROG Strix X299-XE Gaming features the most comprehensive cooling controls ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS:
- Multiple temperature sources
- Water pump+
- 4-pin PWM/DC fan
- ASUS FAN Extension card support
- Smart protection
DDR4 Overclocking Strength in Numbers
With optimized trace paths for time-aligned signaling and minimal crosstalk, Third-generation ASUS T-Topology offers enhanced memory stability and compatibility, allowing support for memory speeds of DDR4 4133 MHz and beyond.
OC Design- Asus Pro Clock II Technology
A dedicated base-clock generator that extends CPU and memory overclocking margins. This custom solution works in tandem with the TPU to enhance voltage and base-clock overclocking control, providing the flexibility to extract every ounce of performance from Intel® Core™ X-series processors.
Immerse yourself in sound with ROG Strix's SupremeFX audio technology. Utilizing the S1220A codec, ROG Strix's SupremeFX audio solution is engineered to provide a flat frequency response and offer a neutral, detailed sound signature. The addition of two op-amps on the front panel headphone output ensures adequate voltage and current to drive headphones to their full potential. And our Sonic Studio software grants you full control over every aspect of audio, including noise reduction algorithms for communications, plus EQ adjustments to get the most from your headset or speakers.
