In an effort to maintain the lowest possible noise levels or to minimize the number of moving parts on the motherboard, passive cooling has become the preferred choice by DIY PC builders. ROG Crosshair Dark Hero is the first ASUS X570 board to fully implement a passive cooling design. It also employs an upgraded power design to efficiently deliver large amounts of clean power to the high-end, next-gen AMD CPUs for Socket AM4. As its name suggests, Crosshair VIII Dark Hero has a subtle aesthetic, and it boasts a range of enthusiast-friendly features for overclockers who look to push chips to the limit.
