Features

The Code

Inspired by the rich heritage that has bound the Republic of Gamers to the world of gaming, ROG Maximus XI Code brings together the finest in ROG engineering in understated form that offers all the expansion and personalization opportunities needed to create a distinctive custom rig.

Thrilling Performance

With a dedicated onboard clock generator, support for the latest high-performance memory, and cooling options to keep thermals under tight control, Code provides a potent foundation for your next gaming build.

Control Your Rig

Intelligent Control

Fast, intuitive control is vital for effective command of your rig, so we've loaded ROG Maximus XI Code with simple, flexible tools that let you tweak almost every system aspect. Enjoy intelligent automated tuning with 5-Way Optimization technology, or dive deep into the revered ROG UEFI BIOS to take full manual control. Code also makes short work of fine-tuning everything from audio to storage, so it's easy to get every park of your system up to speed.

AI Overclocking

ASUS AI Overclocking makes automatic tuning faster and smarter than ever before. Available in Windows or directly through the UEFI, it profiles the CPU and cooling to predict the optimal configuration for each individual system.

Utilizes onboard intelligence to perform automated clocking and provides target frequency and voltage estimations for savvy veterans that prefer manual tuning.

OptiMem II

To provide Intel's latest CPU's unfettered access to memory bandwidth, Asus has re-imagined motherboard trace routing from the ground up.

Ground Trace with via stitching - Shielding zones punctuated by vias offer the shortest return paths to ground and reduce lateral interference.

5-Way Optimization

Take care of complex tuning with just one click. ASUS 5-Way Optimization is a system-wide tuning utility that overclocks the processor and tunes fan speeds to ensure the best balance between cooling and acoustics. The automated CPU tuning feature of 5-Way Optimization leverages the same onboard intelligence as AI Overclocking,but goes further by running a Prime95 based stress test to deliver a result that's well-tuned from the get-go.

TPU Insight

The TurboV Processing Unit (TPU) Insight provides AI Suite 3 with the intelligence needed to automatically fine-tune voltages, monitor system stats, and adjust overclocking.

EPU Guidance

The Energy Processing Unit (EPU) Guidance enables system-wide power efficiency, automatically optimizing consumption to maximize savings.

Fan Xpert 4

Enjoy comprehensive control over fans, water pumps and all-in-one (AIO) coolers, via either Fan Expert 4 or our award-winning UEFI.

Digital Power Controls

The Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) delivers real-time control over voltage droop, switching frequency and power-efficiency settings, allowing you to fine-tune CPU voltage regulation for ultimate stability and performance.

Turbo App

Game Faster, Rank Higher. Intel's processors feature per-core tuning, and the ASUS Turbo app makes use of this feature by letting you assign applications to specific processor cores, prioritizing computing power where it's needed most.

UEFI BIOS

The renowned ROG UEFI (BIOS) provides everything you need to configure, tweak, and tune your rig. It offers intelligently simplified options for newcomers to PC DIY, as well as comprehensive features for seasoned veterans.

When you're ready for a deeper dive into the configuration of your system, delve into the UEFI's Advanced mode and take complete control. Each section is intuitively organized, and a built-in search feature makes it easy to find the options you need. Advanced functions are coded with the intelligence to adapt to your settings, and when you're ready to take charge, parameters have the granularity to dial in performance just the way you want.

SupremeFX

Immerse yourself in sound with SupremeFX audio technology. Utilizing the S1220 codec, SupremeFX is the integrated-audio solution that's engineered to provide a flat frequency response for a neutral, detailed sound signature. And to ensure that pristine signature is perfectly preserved, the front-panel output is driven with dual op amps, delivering sonics with the scale and authority to create virtual worlds via your gaming headset.
