Digital power control and an array of power stages ensures ROG Strix TRX40-E Gaming has the muscle to control the latest Threadripper CPUs.
ProCool II Power Connectors
ProCool II sockets are built to tight specifications to ensure flush contact with the PSU power lines and have a metal armor for improved heat dissipation. The connector's lower impedance helps prevent hotspots and improves reliability.
ACTIVE CHIPSET HEATSINK
ROG Strix TRX40-E Gaming series features the most comprehensive cooling options ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS
Custom Delta Superflo Fan
The custom low-noise fan features a high-durability bearing with a 60,000-hour L10* lifespan.
* L10 bearing life is a standard metric that specifies the number of hours that 90% of the bearing are expected to continue successfully operating, as a minimum.
A specially-designed air duct helps the fan generate static pressure and concentrates air flow over the fins.
ROG Strix TRX40-E gaming features an SoC VRM heatsink positioned in the pathway of the chipset fan's airflow to enable the SoC VRM to stay cool during memory overclocking.
The heatsink fin density is optimized to maximize surface area while maintaining a low-resistance exhaust path.
ROG Strix TRX40-E Gaming is engineered with the latest connectivity for the best gaming experiences. Transfer files faster and banish lag as you secure more victories.
DDR4 OC 4666MHz+
The TRX40 platform delivers ample bandwidth on multiple fronts. Its quad-channel memory controller supports up to 256 GB of DDR4 memory across eight slots and an optimized trace layout enables DDR4 memory overclocking with maxed-out speeds for your build.

DESIGN & CUSTOMIZATION
A host of design touches, including a unique cyber-text pattern, plus customization options, comprehensive validation lists, and the most diverse ecosystem of components in the industry make building and personalizing a gaming rig with ROG Strix TRX40-E Gaming wonderfully easy.
STRIKING NEW DESIGN
ROG Strix TRX40-E Gaming strikes an arresting pose, with or without RGB. A unique RGB rainfall pattern on the VRM heatsink provides a colorful accent to this critical component. The I/O shroud sports a laser-engraved ROG logo topped with an acrylic plate imprinted with ROG's signature cybertext patterns, so switching on the lights illuminates a whole new aesthetic dimension — unique style with a cyberpunk edge.
OUTSHINE THE COMPETITION
ROG Strix motherboards deliver sterling performance, accented by aesthetics to Outshine the Competition. 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 header — and it can all be synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-capable ASUS hardware.
ROG Strix TRX40-E Gaming is equipped with LiveDash, a built-in 1.3“ OLED panel that displays useful information and customizable graphics. During the power-on, self-test (POST) phase, LiveDash shows key progress stats in simple language and via traditional POST codes. Then, during normal operation, the panel shows a choice of CPU frequency, device temperatures, fan speeds or information from the Water Cooling Zone. You're even able to customize the default LiveDash GIF, so that it'll display your own image or animation.
Having the freedom to pick and choose the parts that go into your machine is at the heart of PC DIY. That's why ROG Strix undergoes an extensive certification program focused on providing the very best compatibility with the widest range of components and devices. Our extensive list of guaranteed-compatible components is an invaluable aid to building a ROG Strix gaming rig. It specifies thousands of compatible parts, and it includes a dedicated Qualified Vendor List (QVL) for memory — so you can build fuss-free.
