Infinite Lighting Possibilities
ASUS Aura SDK allows developers to take full advantage of the vast ecosystem of Aura Sync-capable PC gear. From in-system illumination to peripherals and beyond, the SDK provides an evolving toolkit of options to enhance games and software with RGB lighting. Game effects, alerts, and audio can all be conveyed via Aura-compatible hardware, creating subtle or dazzling visual cues to augment the action. There's also scope to map system parameters to lighting, such as internal temperatures, handing you versatile new ways to monitor vital information.

AURA SYNC X PHILIPS HUE
ROG Crosshair VII Hero takes ASUS Aura into the home — and now it also lets you synchronize effects with Philips® Hue personal wireless lighting. Easily control your Hue light bulbs, strips and lamps from the simple Aura app , and create immersive illumination that extends beyond your rig to make the whole room part of your gaming experience.
ASUS PRO CLOCK TECHNOLOGY
By default, all of Ryzen's major bus frequencies are derived from the same reference clock, limiting the control and flexibility needed to harness the full overclocking potential of the platform. ROG Crosshair VII Hero features a dedicated onboard clock generator that supplies dynamic reference clocks to the CPU cores and major subdomains, giving you the freedom to coax every MHz of headroom from the system.
DDR4 OVERCLOCKING STRENGTH IN NUMBERS
Whether you're gunning for high memory frequencies or tuning timings for the lowest latency, ROG Crosshair VII Hero provides the tools you need to exploit Ryzen's latent potential: carefully optimized trace pathways maintain signal integrity, and the acclaimed ROG firmware offers the necessary tweaks to ensure stability while maximizing memory performance. Load up with a high-density memory kit for heavy multitasking, or run a focused setup that delivers the bandwidth your favorite games and applications need. Any way you stack it, the Hero has you covered.
SPEED YOUR GAME LOADS
ROG's uniquely intelligent technology effectively caches an entire storage device so that favorite games and apps launch at breakneck speeds, getting to work the moment it's activated. RAMCache turns milliseconds into microseconds to boost game-load times to stratospheric levels!
ONE-CLICK OVERCLOCKING AND COOLING
Take care of complex tuning with just one click. ASUS 5-Way Optimization makes your PC smart by dynamically optimizing essential aspects of your 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 during everyday computing, and deliver optimal airflow when the system is crunching through CPU- or GPU-intensive tasks.
・ An all-new stress test allows users to optimize and overclock for CPU- or memory-centric workloads.
Media-acclaimed UEFI BIOS
The renowned ROG UEFI (BIOS) provides everything you need to configure, tweak, and tune your Ryzen-based rig. It offers intelligently simplified options for newcomers to PC DIY, as well as comprehensive features for seasoned veterans.
Cooler By Design
ROG Crosshair VII Hero features the most comprehensive cooling controls ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS.
Each header can be set to monitor and react to three user-configurable thermal sensors, for workload-based cooling. And all settings can be easily managed by Fan Xpert 4 or UEFI.
