Posted by at 7:56 am on March 14, 2017

Asus has debuted the ASUS- the ROG Maximus IX Extreme, complete with integrated water cooler, Aura Sync illumination, exceptional audio and more.

The key standout for the Maximus IX Extreme is the integrated ROG monoblock, which provides water cooling for the CPU alongside a liquid-conduction cooled M.2 heatsink. This monoblock is designed to cool both the CPU and VRM and comes with an embedded flow meter which monitors the water pump in real time. Obviously, you will also need a radiator for a custom water loop, so this motherboard has eight radiator fan headers.

The Maximus IX Extreme has support for Intel’s latest Kaby Lake processors but it also supports DDR4 RAM speeds of up to 4133MHz. On the connectivity side, the Maximus IX features the latest Intel Ethernet port, along with dual PCIe 3.0 x4 M.2 slots for NVMe SSD RAID. There is support for USB Type-C and USB 3.1 as well as Thunderbolt 3 with transfers of up to 40Gbps.

On the audio side,  this board uses the ROG-exclusive SupremeFX S1220 codec with support for Sonic Studio III and Sonic Radar III. This onboard solution delivers a 113dB signal to noise ratio on the line-in connection and can record up to 120dB on the line-out. This codec is paired with an ESS Sabre HiFi ES9023P DAC for the front panel.

The ROG Maximum IX Extreme X270 will be available first in the UE and at  620 British pounds ($755).
