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.

Thank you for the followup and clarification. In my particular case (pun intended), which is a SFFPC NR200P, the placement of a 240mm AIO on top of the case (best heat flow routing from bottom to top) is partly obstructed by maybe 2mm by the CPU socket being in the  way. The corner of the AIO (which I don't dare hammer in lest it leaks) touches the plug which, if the socket were placed just few mm closer to the corner, would present no obstacle. Asus is a wealthy enough corporation to afford buying top 10-15 most popular SFFPC cases and trying to assemble with the ROG MicroATX or MiniITX boards - just to see if all fits - and what gets in the way. Most commonly used in SFF is an air cooler, yet modern fastest CPUs from both camps (intel or AMD) commonly require powerful coolers, which with AIO result in notably less noise (because AIO uses multiple fans) and (somewhat) lower T.

This pre-fitting approach would gain much appreciation from enthusiasts - and generate pictures for marketing.


Also thank you for touching on the subject of connectors / power cables' length. CPU power cable will still fit if the socket is 3 mm to 3 cm farther away from PSU. However, ASUS places cables with their SFX or SFX-L PSUs that are a gargantuan (by SFFPC scale) 80 cm long. Why not also place just the 24 pin and 8 pin CPU cables which are short - as in 15 cm (you/Asus will know the exact best length when you/Asus try to build in these cases- and while at it orient the PSU in all four directions (eight actually as some place PSU upside-down so 4 orientations times 2 directions fan up and fan down). In my build, there are literally bundles upon bundles of extra long cables strapped to the outside of the PSU - the side with no fan. Makes for a comparatively unsightly SFF build, but I rather would not use afermarket "custom short" cables.

I was told to clear CMOS by removing the battery. My suggestion is putting it someplace that doesn't require to remove your videcard and the sexy plate... somewhere accessable.

read through several pages but may have missed this one. 

Personally I prefer the Hero and Dark Hero styling. I actually have both. My wife has the Z790 Hero and I have the Dark Hero, with a spare Hero in the box just in case. 

With that said I consider myself an enthusiast but prefer the look and styling of the Hero line vs the Apex line. 

I would prefer the features and functionality with OCing RAM of the APEX but on the Hero line. 

Why not combine lines, and add the functionality to disable DIMM slots on board to give you the best of both worlds for those wanting to dabble in OCing RAM. 

I would even pay a little more for this feature.

My 2 cents 



Z790 Apex Encore, 14900KS, Corsair 7000D, Crucial T705 2TB, Corsair Titanium DDR5 48GB 8200, Asus RTX 4090 OC STRIX, MSI MEG 1300w PSU, Corsair ICUE LINK 420mm 14 QX Fans, Acer Predator X38 S 177hz | Z790 Apex Encore, 14900KS, Corsair Titanium DDR5 48GB 8200, Crucial T700 2TB, Corsair HX1000 PSU, Corsair 5000D, Corsair ICUE LINK 360mm, Asus RTX 4090 TUF, Alienware 38" Curved 144hz

Hi Rodine,

The memory topology of the board matters. Simply disabling DIMM slots doesn’t make a board perform like a 1 DIMM per channel motherboard as we can’t change the trace layout which is key for reducing signalling problems such as jitter, crosstalk etc. Having fewer slots helps improve these things and maintain a cleaner signal by using a more optimal layout. This a large part as to why the APEX is able to provide higher DRAM OC than other SKU. 👍

Hi. In my opinion there should be variant completely without RGB features. I am one who loves minimalism and purpose. That's why I find RGB elements to be a waste. I would be happy if among the most powerful gaming motherboards there was a choice of a completely RGB-free variant. For example "ASUS ROG MAXIMUS Z790 HERO" and to it there could be a variant "ASUS ROG MAXIMUS Z790 HERO No-RGB"

Just checking you're familiar with Stealth Mode from within the UEFI?

Yes, I am. Just mind the each RGB fetature, OLED displays in mainboard, oled displays in AIO coolers, e.t.c... It makes the price up to 100 USD higher. And I don't want to pay for something that I will not use.

you do have side cutters? 🙂

I'd love to have options in Armoury Crate to access NVMe, Storage data on the OLED for my Crosshair VIII Extreme Motherboard.

Not sure how big of a request that is, But I feel the more options for sensor Data there are, to display, the more functional the display is.

I love the idea of having screens that display data, but the options for data to display are a bit anemic.

How about a option, that ill pay for BETTER BIOS AND SOFTWARE. ill pay Asus a monthly small fee, like $2.00 to $5.00 to hire more people to get stuff fixed! but only ROG or WS. and you have to go Back to X99 AND Z 490.  i don't care for subscriptions, but waiting or wanting things can take a long time, or it never happens. Example, i would like newer Thunderbolt cards, to be able to work on X299 or X99 , you would sell more product, if you made a Bios Fix and Software update. i work hard and would like for my stuff to be just flawless. Well have a Great Day!
