Innovative Features Allow you to Excel
TRX40-E GAMING HAS THE MUSCLE TO CONTROL THE LATEST THREADRIPPER CPUSProCool II sockets are built to tight specifications to ensure flush contact with the PSU power lines and have a metal armor for improved heat dissipation. The Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) is one of the finest in the industry, ensuring ultra-smooth and clean power delivery to the CPU. ROG Strix TRX40-E Gaming has a CPU VRM with 16 power stages, delivering the power and efficiency that the latest AMD processors demand. Superior chokes and durable capacitors are engineered to resist extreme temperatures and provide better performance than the industry standard.
ACTIVE VRM HEATSINKAn active VRM heatsink provides a large contact area for the MOSFETs and chokes, enabling more efficient cooling of the MOS heatsink for better performance and wattage resistance.
DUAL M.2 HEATSINKThe M.2 heatsink keeps the Dual M.2 SSD at the optimum operating temperature for consistent performance and reliability.
ACTIVE CHIPSET HEATSINKPCIe 4.0 provides twice the bandwidth which creates more heat than the previous generation. ROG Strix TRX40-E Gaming features an actively cooled heatsink to prevent throttling.
BACKPLATEA backplate on the rear of the board helps balance MOSFET temperatures while providing structural reinforcement.
THERMAL PADA high-quality thermal pad helps transfer heat from the inductor and phase array to the heatsink.
STACKED-FIN HEATSINKMulti-layered fins maximise the surface area to speed heat dissipation from the controller, improving cooling.
Plenty of Comprehensive Cooling Options
COOLER BY DESIGNROG Strix TRX40-E Gaming series features the most comprehensive cooling options ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS. A specially-designed air duct helps the fan generate static pressure and concentrates air flow over the fins. The custom low-noise fan features a high-durability bearing with a 60,000-hour lifespan. ROG Strix TRX40-E gaming features an SoC VRM heatsink positioned in the pathway of the chipset fan's airflow to enable the SoC VRM to stay cool during memory overclocking.
CPU FAN HEADER | AIO PUMP FAN HEADER | WATER PUMP + HEADERA dedicated PWM/DC fan header for CPU coolers and another one for self-contained water-cooling setups. There is also a Water pump header that can supply over 3A to high-performance PWM or DC water pumps.
Proprietary Memory Design
DDR4 OC 4666MHZ+The TRX40 platform delivers ample bandwidth on multiple fronts. Its quad-channel memory controller supports up to 256 GB of DDR4 memory across eight slots and an optimised trace layout enables DDR4 memory overclocking with maxed-out speeds for your build. Get ready for eye watering speed!
Triple M.2 Drives Utilising PCIe 4.0
READY FOR THE NEW GENERATIONROG Strix TRX40-E Gaming features triple M.2 slots. The M.2_3 slot supports both SATA and PCIe 4.0 x4 modes, and the other slots support PCIe 4.0 x4 for NVMe. Together, they give you the fastest and most-flexible M.2 interface available.
