And the finishing touches are added by exclusive utilities and overclocking controls that allow you to uniquely flex the performance of Ryzen 7000 Series processors. Define your AM5 build with the ROG Crosshair X670E Hero.
The ROG Crosshair X670E Hero delivers extreme performance. The gruelling demands of the mightiest AMD Ryzen™ 7000 Series processors are no match for the eighteen 110A-stage power solution of the ROG Crosshair X670E Hero. Its massive headroom opens up incredible overclocking potential, bolstered by a combo attack of unique ROG technologies and champion-level DDR5 speeds.
ROG Overclocking Technologies
Take Ryzen beyond the already impressive sum of its parts. Dynamic OC Switcher and Ryzen Core Flex create additional frequency waypoints for single and multi-threaded workloads, allowing Ryzen to break boundaries and achieve peak performance in all games and apps.
Ryzen Core Flex
Ryzen Core Flex empowers you to smash limits farther than ever before by letting you control clock, power, and thermals in creative new ways. In its simplest form, you can maximize base clock during lighter loads and set breakpoints to gradually reduce CPU core frequency as temperature or current increases. But the system is extremely adaptable, supporting multiple user-controlled functions that can manipulate power, current, and temperature limits independently so that you can bend CPU performance to your will.
For next-level frequency flexibility, the ROG Crosshair X670E Hero features a built-in clock generator that isolates CPU base clock from memory, PCIe, and the Infinity Fabric speed. Drive CPU performance to its absolute brink while maintaining the stability of related clock domains.
AMD Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO) pushes the CPU current and voltage budget to opportunistically increase performance. By aggressively tuning the PBO parameters, AMD's algorithm can leverage the motherboard's robust power solution to ramp up performance even higher.
Tuning is now faster and smarter than ever before. ASUS AI Overclocking profiles the CPU and cooling to predict the optimal configuration and push the system to its limits. Predicted values can be engaged automatically or used as a launching ground for further experimentation.
Teamed Power Architecture
Today's CPU architectures place incredible demands on motherboard power design by transitioning from deep power-saving modes, going from lower-power mode to full load in an instant. The latest ROG VRM architecture rises to the challenge by utilizing teamed power stages to rapidly swing current, while maintaining exemplary thermal performance.
Comprehensive memory tuning options are the cornerstone of ROG motherboards. With the ROG Crosshair X670E Hero, you can extract all of the potential out of your DDR5 modules, regardless of if they're from an extreme-speed kit or an entry-level set that would otherwise be locked.
For those who want to fly past stock DDR5 speeds, the ROG Crosshair X670E Hero is primed and ready for enthusiast-grade kits courtesy of vast AMD EXtended Profiles for Overclocking (EXPO) support. Seasoned veterans can further tweak performance via the extensive array of settings in the UEFI.
ASUS Enhanced Memory Profile (AEMP) is an exclusive firmware feature for PMIC-restricted memory modules. AEMP automatically detects the memory chips on your kit and then presents optimized frequency, timing and voltage profiles that you can effortlessly apply to unleash performance.
Every layer of the Hero's armour is painstakingly forged to keep it cool under stress. Enormous heatsinks have been strategically hewn to offer massive thermal headroom to the VRM, while both chipsets share a large central plate for widespread dissipation. Filling in the gaps, the M.2 slots have vast heat spreaders to let installed drives plow through intense PCIe 5.0 transfers without breaking a sweat.
The ROG Crosshair X670E Hero bears the same mounting hole alignment as AM4 platforms, so it is backward compatible with existing coolers, including all AIO offerings from ASUS and ROG.
The dual-chipset design of the ROG Crosshair X670E Hero brings a wealth of bandwidth for connected devices so that you can have it all. WiFi 6E, 2.5G LAN, and dual USB4 ports all grace the rear I/O, flanked by plenty of additional ports for all your devices. On-board SupremeFX audio delivers premium, immersive sound, now using an improved ESS quad-DAC amplifier. And under the hood, up to five PCIe 5.0 M.2 drives can be loaded up for blazing fast load times and transfer speeds.

Two USB4® Type-C® Ports
Each USB4® port delivers up to 40 Gbps of bidirectional bandwidth for the latest super-speed devices and drives. External display support reaches up to 8K output if one of the ports is in use, or both can be employed for dual 4K displays.
USB 3.2 Gen 2X2 TYPE-C® Front-Panel Connector with Quick Charge 4+
USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 adds an additional lane that can boost Type-C data transfers with speeds of up to 20 Gbps. The port also features Quick Charge 4+ technology that can quickly charge devices up to 60W.
ROG SupremeFX audio technology delivers an exceptional 113 dB signal-to-noise ratio on the line-in connection to provide exceptional recording quality. There's also a low-dropout regulator for cleaner power delivery to the SupremeFX ALC4082 codec, and an integrated ESS® ES9218 QUAD DAC capable of reaching -115dB THD+N for superior front-panel output. The combined solution allows for end-to-end 32-bit 384 kHz resolution playback that conveys all the subtlety and nuances of each audio track.
ESS® ES9218 QUAD DAC
The ESS® ES9218 integrated QUAD DAC amplifier is capable of providing -114 dB total harmonic distortion (THD+N) for standard audio devices, and can ramp up to 2Vrms on supported audiophile hardware. In addition, the 121 dB dynamic range (DNR) provides an extremely low noise-floor, further accentuating dynamics and punch.
Instead of the conventional high definition audio (HDA) interface, the ALC4082 codec uses a USB interface to deliver studio-level sound reaching up to 32-bit 384 kHz audio resolution.
Unique design allows the codec's impedance-sensing function to be ported with either the front or rear headphone outputs.
Fine-quality components that produce a warmer, natural sound with exceptional clarity and fidelity.
