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.

A few suggestions, on the rog strix z690-I.

1. Better heatsink/thermal pads for the chipset as others have mentioned throughout this thread.
2. Smaller wifi antenna. Perhaps something a bit more sleek looking, just overall smaller in size. Not a huge deal though to be honest.
3. Better location on future z series mini-itx motherboards for the cmos battery. I don't like having to remove/replace parts on a motherboard to be able to reach the cmos battery. This would be a big quality of life improvement on future mini-itx motherboards if it is possible to do.

Level 9
Consider offering more premium boards with realtek network products.

I know Intel made it look more premium, but all their network products are problematic and trash level.

Wifi trash.

BT trash.

Ethernet no need to tell.

Hi All, My idea (I hope it wasn't suggested yet) is a protection against badUSB:

It could be turn on from the BIOS security menu. Every motherboard could have a unique, factory generated PIN code (the default could practically printed somewhere on the board), and if this feature has turned on and you're connecting a keyboard, you must need to enter this PIN first from the connected keyboard.

More concise XMP overclocking profiles. Also support for GSkill DDR5 7800 and 8000.

I have:
GSkill Trident Z5 F5-7800J3646H16GX2-Tz5RK
DDR5 7800 16GBx2
CL36-46-46-125 1.45v


1) Can you elaborate on this? What do you feel constitutes as “concise”?

2) 7800-8000 for which board? Only the Apex is validated for 8000MT

13900KS / 8000 CAS36 / ROG APEX Z790 / ROG TUF RTX 4090

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!
