Summary: The ASUS ROG Maximus XI Hero (Wi-Fi) motherboard is capable of supporting the HighPoint SSD7103 NVMe RAID controller. The motherboard is based on Intel’s Z390 C612 chipset, which is known to be compatible with SSD7000 series controllers. The motherboard BIOS provides UEFI modes that can support bootable or data RAID configurations.
However, customers should be aware that the motherboard can only support a single PCIe 3.0 device at full speed (x16 electrical lanes), and does not have integrated video support.

1. PCIe Host Interface: The ASUS ROG Maximus XI Hero (Wi-Fi) supports PCIe Gen3 (PCIe 3.0). However, only a single PCIe 3.0 x16 (x16 electrical) connection is available.
The motherboard can only support a single PCIe device at x16 lanes, 2 devices @ x8 or 1device @ x8 plus 2 devices @ x4. The PCIe slot controlled by the Z390 chipset is limited to x4 max (electrical). Please consult pages 1-7 and 1-8 of the User Manual for more information.
2. Boot RAID Support (NVMe arrays used to boot a system): The motherboard BIOS supports UEFI modes, and provides option ROM settings for UEFI devices.
3. Data RAID Support (NVMe arrays used for data storage): There are no apparent restrictions for data-only storage configurations
