Description

Upgraded power delivery, passive chipset cooling, and stealthy aesthetics allow the Crosshair VIII Dark Hero to strike from the shadows and form a menacing duo with AMD Zen 3.

  • Comprehensive thermal design: passive chipset heatsink, M.2 aluminum heatsinks and ROG Water Cooling Zone
  • Robust power delivery: designed power solution 14+2 TI power stages rated for 90A, ProCool II power connectors, microfine alloy chokes and 10K Japanese-made metallic capacitors
  • 5-way optimization: automated system-wide tuning, providing overclocking and cooling profiles that are tailor made for your rig
  • DIY friendly design: pre-mounted I/O shield, ASUS SafeSlot, BIOS flashback and premium components for maximum endurance
  • Unmatched personalization: ASUS-exclusive Aura Sync RGB lighting, including RGB headers and addressable Gen 2 RGB headers

  • ASUS Optimem III
    Infused with proprietary memory trace layout tweaks that improve signal integrity and mitigate noise, Optimem III allows memory kits to run at lower latencies, reduced voltages, and operate at higher frequencies. Stack the Dark Hero with your favorite modules and maximize Zen 3 processors throughput for applications that demand massive bandwidth, or balance infinity fabric and memory performance for a diverse range of workloads.
  • Cooling
    Maintaining system stability is paramount under high load, so Crosshair VIII Dark Hero employs passive chipset cooling with large VRM and chipset heatsinks that strike the right balance between surface area and mass.
  • VRM heatsink
    The two VRM heatsinks are placed above the MOSFETs and chokes, and are connected by a heat pipe to further increase surface area for heat dissipation.
  • M.2 heatsink
    Two dedicated heatsinks keep the dual M.2 SSDs at the optimum operating temperature for consistent performance and reliability.
  • High-conductivity thermal pad
    A high-quality thermal pad improves overall heat transfer from the system by bridging the heat generated by the power stages to the heatsink.
  • Passive chipset heatsink
    A dedicated chipset heatsink draws heat away to maintain optimum operating temperatures.
  • Optimization
    ROG Crosshair VIII Dark Hero is packed with intuitive and flexible tools to allow customization across all system parameters to deliver the performance you want.
  • Accurate voltage monitoring
    Conventional motherboards use single-ended sensing tapped from a location that isn't ideal, leading to a large disparity between the actual voltage fed to the CPU and the value reported to software. ROG Crosshair VIII Dark Hero features a differential-sensing circuit and delicate IC that simplify overclocking and tuning by allowing you to track voltages more accurately.
  • Personalize
    In addition to extraordinary performance, ROG Crosshair VIII Dark Hero provides extensive styling and customization options to let you build a system that truly stands apart.
