Comprehensive controls form the foundation of the ASUS X299 motherboards. The Pro WS X299 Sage II 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.
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.
Cool to the Core
Effective cooling is extremely important, even at stock speeds. That is why the Pro WS X299 Sage II 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, options for water pump and AIO headers.
Multiple Ultra-efficient heatsinks
Pro WS X299 Sage II features a thoughtful thermal design to ensure maximum performance with no CPU throttling. Its ultra-efficient VRM heatsink with a metal fin array maximizes surface area for heat dissipation, and its heatsinks and a connecting heat-pipe that's situated in the direct path of airflow combine to ensure optimal cooling performance – even under the most demanding workloads.
Cooler by design
