The new, special Prime X299 Edition 30 celebrates three decades of ASUS motherboard development. This high-end desktop combines cutting-edge performance with our signature features, including a powerful VRM tailored for overclocking, intuitive cooling control, next-gen connectivity, and extensive customization. It also has a brand-new Smart Control Console with an external OLED.

Get the most out of all your cores
Intel's high-end desktop platform raises the stakes with updated Intel Core X-Series Processors that boast cores, cache, and bandwidth. The Prime X299 Edition 30 is ready for the additional processing power that plows through CPU-intensive tasks, and the extra bandwidth allows you to add more GPUs and NVMe SSDs to accelerate a wide range of work.

Robust Power Design
The LGA 2066 socket is compatible with the latest Intel Core X-Series Processors with up to 18 cores, over 44 PCI Express lanes, and 165-watt thermal design power (TDP). Those specs require serious power, especially if you're overclocking, so the Prime X299 Edition 30 is equipped with a premium power solution that includes 16 power stages that line up neatly along the top edge of the PCB. The power stages are cooled well enough to sustain a staggering up to 544 W output, which is more than enough to overclock 18-core CPUs into truly extreme territory.

ProCool II connector
ProCool II connectors ensure a snug and reliable connection to the EPS 12V power lines. The second-generation features upgrades of metal amour and solid pins for better heat dissipation, as well as a warning LED-display with a BIOS POST message to indicate an improper connection.

PowIRstage MOSFETS
Prime X299 Edition 30 VRM is comprised of 16 IR3555 PowIRstages, each rated to handle 60 amps

Microfine Alloy choke
Each PowIRstage is accompanied by a high-permeability alloy-core choke rated to handle 45 amps.

10K Japanese-made metallic capacitors
Input and output filtering is provided by solid-polymer capacitors rated to last thousands of hours at high operating temperatures.

Cool to the core
Effective cooling is extremely important, even at stock speeds. That is why the Prime X299 Edition 30 allows consolidated cooling control of the entire system, even for the most hardcore rigs. It comes equipped with onboard heatsinks, an array of fan headers, the Fan Extension Card II, options for water pump and AIO headers.

Actively Cooled Heatsink
Since mass and airflow are critically important, our VRM heatsink is manufactured with skived, high aspect ratio thin fins. The hidden 40 mm fan turns on after 60°C. This combination offers optimal cooling for CPU-intensive tasks

M.2 Heatsinks
Two M.2 slots are covered by heatsinks to combat temperature-induced throttling that can affect performance during heavy, sustained storage loads.

Stack Cool 3+
2oz-copper layers shift heat away from critical components, reducing the temperature by up to 20°C.

Backplate
A reinforced backplate improves the stability of the board, and the included thermal pad efficiently directs heat away from the VRM and other components.

Tune it your way
Comprehensive controls form the foundation of the ASUS Prime series. The Prime X299 Edition 30 packs flexible tools to tune every aspect of your system to deliver the performance that you desire.

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.

5-way Optimization
One click takes care of all that complex tuning. ASUS 5-Way Optimization makes your PC smart. It dynamically optimizes essential aspects of the system, providing overclocking and cooling profiles that are tailored for your rig.

An automated tuning utility that optimizes overclocking and cooling profiles for your unique system configuration.
Fans stay quiet as a whisper for everyday computing, and deliver optimal airflow when the system is crunching through CPU or GPU-intensive tasks.
All-new stress test that allows users to optimize and overclock for CPU or memory-centric workloads.

CPU performance boost
The TurboV Processing Unit (TPU) provides AI Suite 3 with the intelligence needed to automatically fine-tune voltages, monitor system stats, and adjust overclocking settings. We have upgraded this tool to provide AI Overclocking prediction values for users who want more insight when experimenting with different settings.

All-round energy efficiency
The Energy Processing Unit (EPU) enables system-wide power efficiency to automatically optimize power consumption to maximize energy savings. This tool now features temperature regulation that adjusts the CPU frequency according to processor temperatures. Users can now set a threshold to balance temperature and performance.

Flexible cooling controls for air or liquid
With Prime X299 Edition 30 you have comprehensive control over fans via Fan Xpert 4 or UEFI. Whether you are cooling with air or water, Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. There's also an Extreme Quiet mode, which reduces all fan speeds to below the default minimum – keeping your system whisper-quiet when performing light tasks.

Precise digital power control
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.

Optimize per-core performance for every app
The Intel latest X-series processors feature per-core tuning, and the ASUS Turbo Core app makes use of this feature by enabling your to assign applications to specific processor cores, allowing you to prioritize compute power where it's needed the most.

UEFI BIOS
The renowned 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.

Advanced tuning for serious tweaker
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.

Prediction
AI Overclocking monitors system vitals such as temperature, fan speed, and power draw to estimate overclocking performance.
