I don't think anyone need such an high end motherboard, until and unless you are gaming at multi-monitor setting with uber high resolution and OCing like crazy.

It's not even needed for any kind of gaming. This one's purely for those chasing numbers in benching and f@h.

Long list for a big bad ass board. Getting back to the board now. Like all of you already know, this is the top of the line ROG board and it runs with the Red and Black ROG colors:



The board is one awesome monster. It comes in as an EATX form factor and the number of features on the board seem to justify the size of the board.

The board has a total of 5 PCIE 3.0 x 16 lanes as well as a single PCIE 2.0 x4 and a Mini PCIE slot to boot. The main VRM areas as well as the SB are covered by good quality aluminium heatsinks and this time Asus has done a good job with the contact between the VRM area and the base of the heatsinks. Unlike the Formula version, the Extreme does not come with built in water cooling support. I know that this is a board meant for LN2 clocking, but adding that one small feature here would not have hurt much. The heatsinks themselves are broken up into 2 pairs, with nickle plated copper heatpipes connecting each pair.



Moving on to the rear f the board, we can see the use of proper metal screws with plastic washers for the heatsinks. There is also an additional aluminium plate to disperse heat from the VRM's at the rear of the board. Overall a good and clean finish. Now lets take a quick look at individual parts of the board and what each of these parts work towars on the bigger scheme of things.



Lets start with the rear I/O port area. The Maximus Extreme comes with:

Of special interest in this list is the Thunderbolt port, the ROG connect Port as well as the ROG on/off switch and the Clear CMOS button. I have always found this setup of the Clear CMOS to be the most useful, specially when overclocking. The Rear area also holds the MPCIE combo area, which supports Wifi (supplied) and an MSATA SSD (not supplied and not easliy available in India.




Looking over the area around the MPCIE slot, we can find a 8+4 Pin EPS on the left side, and 2 fan channels, 1 audio plug, 1 OC Key plug and an 8 Pin PCIE connector, to provide extra power when you want to use more than 2 cards on the board and overclock the hell out of them.

Moving on, this photo gives you a good idea of the bottom part of the same area.



Here you get a small look at the Realtek chip, which is in charge of the sound options on this board. It is not as flashy as the ones on the lower end ROG boards, but then again, this board is for overclocking on LN2, so such things can be done away with.



he bottom of the board, as per the norm has the whole list of internal headers.



This includes your USB 2 .0 and 3.0, as well as a couple of 4 pin fan channels, sound, Esata and front panel connectors. It also has the simple little Bios switch, which helps you cnage over to a back up bios in case of a bios crash. This feature along with a bios flash back should be extremly useful during long sessions of hardcore benching. Just below the large heatsink, you can see a chip with the ROG logo on it. This chip is in charge of the majority of the ROG reporting features, a lot of which can be seen once you install the Asus AI software.



There is also the temperature sensor as well as the ASmedia chip, which controls your USB and Sata implementation, over and above what the Intel chipset will do.
