- 5-Way Optimization: One-click system-wide overclocking.
- Best gaming networking: Intel Gigabit Ethernet, 2x2 802.11ac MU-MIMO Wi-Fi, LANGuard and GameFirst technologies.
- Best gaming protection: pre-mounted I/O shield, Safeslot, SafeDIMM, and copper-plated PCB edges for EMI protection and maximum durability.
- Best gaming connectivity: Front-panel USB 3.1, onboard Thunderbolt 3. and dual M.2
- Cool to the extreme
ROG teamed up with geniuses at Bitspower to develop an integrated water-cooling solution for Maximus IX Extreme - one that elevates simplicity and efficiency to extraordinary levels. Designed from the ground up, and ready to work right out of the box, Maximus IX Extreme's built-in monoblock has flow-rate, water-leak and temperature sensors all seamlessly integrated - plus Aura Sync RGB lighting, for instant curb appeal.
- Aura lighting control
Customize LED effects with intuitive ASUS Aura Sync lighting-control software. Aura allows you to cast a stunning multi-color glow across your build via the ROG Maximus IX Extreme's brilliant built-in RGB LEDs or attached RGB strips via the two onboard 4-pin headers. Fire up ASUS Aura and enjoy the creative freedom of nine lighting schemes ─ and watch all of the lights on your rig glow in perfect synchronization.
- Outshine the competition
ASUS Aura Sync technology makes Maximus IX Extreme the control hub for your illumination ambitions - so it's easy to synchronize incredible lighting effects between compatible components, including RGB LED strips, graphics cards, keyboards and even mice! Change all LEDs in unison or employ dynamic modes to flow the illumination effects smoothly across all synchronized devices.
- Exquisite audio, inside and out
ROG's awesome SupremeFX audio technology has leveled up, delivering an exceptional 113dB signal-to-noise ratio on the line-in connection and 120dB on line-out one - and that means great recording quality! There is also a low-dropout regulator for cleaner power delivery to the SupremeFX S1220 codec, an ESS Sabre Hi-Fi ES9023P digital-to-analog converter for superior front-panel output, and a Texas Instruments RC4580 operational amplifier for high gain with low distortion creating audio that envelops you.
- Scan and detect to dominate
Sonic Radar III with an evolved audio engine that processes sounds more accurately ensures you're always aware of what's going on around you. An on-screen arrow has also been added to help you pinpoint the enemy position instantly.
- ASUS Pro Clock technology
A dedicated base-clock generator allows to base clock frequencies up to or beyond 425MHz. This custom solution works in tandem with the ASUS TurboV Processing Unit (TPU) to enhance voltage and base-clock overclocking control - providing an exciting way to boost performance to extreme heights.
- DDR4 overclocking
With support for DDR4 memory you're able to drive memory frequencies to 4133MHz - and even beyond! ASUS-exclusive T-Topology circuit design plus OC Socket provides superb memory-overclocking potential, minimizing coupling noise and signal reflection to enable you to unleash the full power of DDR4. With sophisticated equidistant memory channels, the design delivers the most balanced control and incredibly powerful overclocking capability.
- Cooler by design
Play quieter and cooler with advanced fan and water-pump controls for the ultimate in undisturbed gaming. With onboard thermal sensors and hardware-level 4-pin/3-pin PWM/DC mode detection, Fan Xpert 4 makes sure every fan achieves the best balance of cooling performance and low noise. Enjoy all the performance you demand with none of the racket.
- Fine power, digitally controlled
ROG's revered digital power controller delivers even-finer power, with Texas Instruments NexFET MOSFETs, MicroFine alloy chokes, Digi+ PWM controller and 10K black metallic capacitors - ensuring Extreme Engine Digi+ always delivers the smoothest core voltages.
