ASUS PRIME X299-A II MOTHERBOARD
Intel ATX motherboard LGA 2066 for Intel Core X-series processors, with AI Overclocking, 12 IR3555 power stages, DDR4 4266 MHz, Triple M.2, USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C and Aura Sync RGB lighting
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
A proprietary algorithm evaluates the capabilities of your CPU
Onboard intelligence watches system vitals such as temperature, fan speed, and power draw to gauge cooling performance
LITTLE THINGS MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE
We pay careful attention to all the little details that improve your overall experience, from integrating a flashing utility directly into the UEFI to simplifying firmware updates or displaying your system vital signs. Prime X299 Edition 30 provides the tools you need to personalize your build and stay on top of things.
