Asus’ Extreme Engine Digi+ is composed of NexFET MOSFETs, MicroFine alloy chokes, Digi+ PWM controller, and 10K black metallic capacitors.

Plus, there are a total of 12 fan connectors on this motherboard placed for use with water cooling components such as fans and water pumps. There are also headers on the motherboard for additional flow rate and temperature sensors for end users who want to run a secondary water cooling loop.

The motherboard is now out in North America for MSRP of $629
