Infused with the essential gaming spirit that is ROG, Strix X299-E Gaming is hungry for high-performance Intel® Core™ X Series processors — and ready to satisfy your desire for X299.
OUTSHINE THE COMPETITION
ASUS Aura Sync takes RGB lighting beyond the checkbox, combining and controlling the LEDs across all of your Aura-enabled products from a single application to achieve perfect, synchronized harmony. From motherboards and RGB strips to graphics cards and beyond, Aura Sync enables a veritable symphony of light for ultimate personalization.
AURA ADDRESSABLE HEADER
RGB LIGHTING PERFECTED
Strix X299-E Gaming motherboard now includes a dedicated addressable RGB header* that connects to compatible lighting strips, fans, coolers, and compatible PC cases, creating a new world of illumination possibilities. Our Aura software contains an array of effects for addressable gear, and the Aura SDK takes things to the next level — allowing developers to control each LED individually, unleashing infinite lighting possibilities! Strix X299-E Gaming motherboard includes a convenient 80cm extension cable, making it easy to fit an addressable RGB strip wherever you want, and we've worked with strip, fan, and chassis vendors to ensure an ever-growing choice of compatible addressable gear.
*Addressable RGB header supports strips with a maximum power rating of 3A (5V). For maximum brightness, strips should contain no more than 120 LEDs.
INFINITE LIGHTING POSSIBILITIES
ASUS Aura SDK allows developers to take full advantage of the vast eco-system 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 portrayed via Aura-compatible hardware, creating subtle or dazzling visual cues to augment the action. There's also scope to map system parameters such as temperatures to lighting, giving enthusiasts new ways to monitor vital information.
PERFECTED COOLING FOR UNLEASHING PERFORMANCE
Strix X299-E 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.
M.2 FAN HOLDER
The ASUS 3D-printed M.2 fan holder keeps temperatures low for improved performance and longevity.
EXCLUSIVE 3D MOUNT FOR EASY INSTALLATION
Dedicated 3D Mounts on the motherboard makes fitting 3D-printed parts easy. Using the same screws as M.2 drives and standard motherboard mounting holes, you can easily add an M.2 fan holder. *Products with the 3D Printing Friendly logo feature the specialized 3D Mount and are also bundled with an extra 3D mount kit.
STRENGTH IN NUMBERS
With support for DDR4 memory, Strix X299-E Gaming lets you drive memory frequencies to 4133MHz — and even beyond when overclocked! ASUS-exclusive T-Topology circuit design plus OC Socket provides superb memory-overclocking capability to unleash the full power of DDR4 by minimizing coupling noise and signal reflection. With innovative equidistant memory channels, T-Topology delivers balanced control and powerful overclocking compatibility.
ASUS PRO CLOCK II TECHNOLOGY
A dedicated base-clock (BCLK) generator designed for Intel Core X series processors allows overclocked base-clock frequencies up to or beyond 400MHz*. This custom solution works in tandem with the ASUS TurboV Processing Unit (TPU) to enhance voltage and base-clock overclocking control, providing an exciting new way to boost performance to extreme heights.
