Make Future Motherboard Feature Suggestions Here!

Hi all,

ASUS ROG is requesting our best suggestions for ROG product improvements. As a moderator I won’t have the ability to implement your suggestions but I will be picking some of the best to highlight for the ROG team so they know what matters to us, the community.

Some guidelines for this thread:
1) Keep it positive and constructive. In most of the forum I try to allow you all to express your thoughts freely (within reason). This thread has the express purpose of generating constructive suggestions so I will be moderating this thread and deleting posts that do not contribute to that goal.
2) Keep it concise and on topic. Some minor discussion regarding a specific suggestion is welcome but if you would like to have a longer conversation I ask you start an additional thread and link it in your post here. You can also request a moderator move your posts if you have need.
3) Try for realistic ideas that appeal broadly to gamers. A small improvement on an existing ROG product is much more likely to get chosen than an entirely new product that only matters to a small number of people.
4) Support your favorites! You don’t have to come up with a suggestion to help. If you see something you like, quote it and say so! More support for an idea improves its chances.

I’ve updated the titles for these feedback threads to reflect that this is primarily for *future* products. Sorry for the lack of clarity. While there is a chance some ideas could be implemented via software updates it’s most likely any suggestions would be rolled into new products.
Also, these threads are not for issue reporting and such posts won’t reach the right people. Please post issues in the ROG Care > Hardware & Software Support section. Or contact ASUS support via phone or email for immediate assistance.

ASUS Maximus z790 Hero

1) ASUS support says 7800 is supported by Team Group. I was also reading that the Hero uses memory only in even numbers.

My memory is not supported 😒


When will ASUS add Gskill 7800 to list? I didn’t go with Team Group from reading they had a lot of issues with the memory. Even tho both use SK Hynix chips. Since running Gskill it is faster more stable and the only issue I have had was when Win 11 sets it to sleep, when trying to wake it. Failure. We have been back and forth testing in another thread. I even spent all day doing a another MemTest86 Hammer Test, no errors.

The QVL after Initial launch can sometimes be slow to update, but you can check the memory vendors QVL also. 

7800MT can be tough on 4 DIMM boards hence why this is the highest validated frequency. Platform limitations are what they are, but I would agree that user awareness is an area for improvement 🙂

I realize RAM support is mentioned, but I'd like to be even more specific.

Please publish the exact BIOS parameters for the items on the QVL list and instructions on how to set them.

For example, I bought the CORSAIR CMH192GX5M4B5200C38 4x 48GB kit based on its presence on the QVL list. But I immediately found out that (1) the BIOS version mattered but was stated nowhere; (2) the XMP profile mattered but was stated nowhere; and (3) the timing, frequency, and voltage parameters mattered but were stated incorrectly on the QVL list according to Asus Support.

Point in case: the QVL states 38-38-38-84 for timing, 5200M/t for frequency, and 1.25V. Asus Support suggests (!) 40-40-40-77, 4400M/t, and 1.25V. I use the word "suggests" because the engineers don't say "do this and it will work" but rather say "try this and see if it works."

I find it very disturbing that Asus releases motherboards and BIOS versions that need to be substantially parameterized to work but can't tell us what exact parameters are needed and how to set them. I would like to see that addressed immediately for existing motherboards and be available as a routine feature of all new ones.

ASUS ROG Z790 Maximus Hero / Intel 13900K / NVIDIA RTX 4090 FE / CORSAIR CMH192GX5M4B5200C38 4x 48GB

My specs:
ASUS Maximus z790 Hero
GSkill Trident Z5 F5-7800J3646H16GX2-Tz5RK
DDR5 7800 16GBx2
CL36-46-46-125 1.45v

Better XMP profiles would be great if they support Gskill 7800 and 8000 memory. They work great on default and XMP 1, 2 and Tweaked. The only issue is Windows Power Management after it goes to sleep, upon wake up it gives QCode 54 mostly, on reboot it also gave these 55, 62, 31.

Thank you!

Latest Bios and Firmware on all….

Recommend to offer MoKiChU's Intel ME and Realtek drivers on your driver download pages, you've failed to provide any reasonable support in this area.  Nothing frustrates me more than to see 5 audio ports and only be able to achieve stereo audio with no room correction, a complete waste of the Realtek chip.  Also, why offer DTS features at all?  No matter how it is positioned, there are only two speakers in a headset.  I can say from a long time ASUS supporter, one of the reasons I continue to choose ASUS is your motherboards just keep running so don't fail us in that department either.  In a nutshell, consider paying MoKiChU top dollar for their efforts without any demands and keep the physical component quality high and improve your software support so I don't have to fumble around for 7.1 audio with room correction.

Fully support that suggestion. If it wasn't for MoKiChu, we would be way behind in driver versions. Asus should pay him for what he does and if he wants to, let him manage the drivers officially. I've never had a problem with any driver he supplies. His information is detailed, helpful and accurate. Good job MoKiChU 😁

I'll add that my Asus experience has been greatly enhanced by MoKiChU. I've seen a small number of errors and omissions  on the official support pages for my board (failure to mention that BIOSs are locked, error with the BIOS naming requirements recently and drivers being 12 months out of date on one occasion) but I've never known MoKiChU to make a mistake. The guy is a superstar. He also provides a lot of advice for questions that might go unanswered otherwise. At least send him an upgrade - maybe a new motherboard. He deserves some recognition for his efforts. 

Z690 Hero, BIOS 3401, MEI 2406.5.5.0, ME Firmware, 7000X Case, RM1000x PSU, i9 12900K, ASUS TUF OC 3090TI, 2 x 16GB Corsair RAM @ 5200MHz, Windows 11 Pro 23H2, Corsair H150i Elite AIO, 4x Corsair RGB fans, 3x M.2 NVME drives, 2x SATA SSDs, 2x SATA HDs.

I'd also like to add, I choose ASUS over others because many of your boards actually have multiple analog output channels on almost all but the micro form factors.  Consider reaching out to Audyssey as a software add-on, A/V receivers license their software technology and I'm very happy with it.  I can only hope but a micro with 11 channels and DTS:x/Atmos analog output and control via Audyssey would be ideal in my world.


lol, had to add an edit.  Could call it the MoKiChU ROG Audyssey Extreme.

My idea is Not a Mainboard Feature perse more like a BIOS Feature, how about for Boards with 2 bios, mostly everyone manly uses one and never Switches to the second bios so a copy function would be interesting

So for example my z690 apex hat 2 bios, the first one ist always used and up to date and works greate, the second bios is realy old maybe even the first one and cant even register the installed CPU, so while you are with in bios one just copy everthing to the second bios, Yes you Could use flashback without a CPU and so one but seeing it Happen with in the BIOS feels Bretter than the flashing lights on the back


One other Thing, the latest z790 itx Board wasnt that good for me, i didnt bought it because the removal of the Audio ports on the back and moving them externaly and even there was Not much to connect to for soundsystems 5.1 or 7.1, spidf out is no replacement for seperat plugs for using 5.1 or even 7.1 Sound

1)   Faster boot times when Fast boot enabled.

2)   Better quality sound chips
