ROG Maximus XII Extreme 10th Generation Intel E-ATX Motherboard from ASUS
Power and Performance Redefined Introducing the ASUS Maximus XII Extreme, This outstanding motherboard has been carefully crafted and tuned by skilled ROG engineers to bring you unprecedented performance. Designed to be as extreme as it's name suggests the Maximus XII Extreme is perfect for max performance water-cooling enthusiasts. Combining hardware and software, to achieve optimized overclocking, high-speed memory support and comprehensive water and fan cooling controls, Maximus XII Extreme delivers ultimate performance combined with efficient, reliable operation.
Built to Take the Strain
POWER DELIVERY ENHANCEMENTS Modern CPU architectures up the ante for motherboard power design by transitioning from deep power saving modes to full load almost instantaneously. Our latest VRM architecture rises to the challenge by utilizing teamed power stages to rapidly swing current, while maintaining exemplary thermal performance.
1. 16-Pin ProCool II Power connector Ensures a snug and reliable connection to the EPS 12V power lines.
Power StagerThe VRM features 16 infineon TDA21490 power stages, each rated to handle 90 amps.
Alloy ChokesEach Power stage is accompanied by a high-permeability alloy-core choke rated to handle 45 amps.
4. 10K Black
Metallic Capacitors Input and output filtering is provided by solid-polymer capacitors rated to last thousands of hours at high operating temperatures.
Cooler by Design
COMPREHENSIVE COOLING ZONEEnjoy comprehensive control over fans and water pumps, via either Fan Expert 4 or our UEFI. Whether you're cooling with air or water, Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. There's also an Extreme Quiet mode, which reduces all fan speeds to below the default minimum — keeping your system whisper-quiet when performing light tasks.
Multiple temperature sources Each header can be set to monitor and react to three user-configurable thermal sensors for workload-based cooling. And all settings can be easily managed by Fan Xpert 4 or UEFI.
4-pin PWM/DC Fan Every onboard header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.
Bundled Fan Extension Card II Bundled card includes six additional DC or PWM fan headers, plus three thermal-probe headers.
Unprecedented Thermal Dominance
Extreme Cooling for an Extreme Motherboard Maximus XII Extreme delivers exceptional overclocking performance without requiring a fan for cooling. This is possible thanks to 16 teamed power stages running 90A MOSFETs on it VRM layout. To further improve heat dissipation, the I/O cover act as a large heatsink and there is also a heat pipe bridging the VRM heatsinks, increasing surface area and improving heat dissipation.
HeatsinkA VRM heatsink is placed on the MOSFETs and chokes, and the embedded heatpipe connects to the aluminum I/O cover.
I/O CoverThe aluminum I/O cover is connected to the primary heatsink via an embedded heatpipe, increasing mass and surface area for dissipation.
3. Extended VRM HeatsinkHelps cool vital motherboard power delivery areas to enhance the overclocking potential of future processors.
4. Aluminum heatsink coverThe heatsink cover is crafted from pure aluminum to efficiently cool the two onboard M.2 drives.
thermal pad The high-quality thermal pad improves overall heat transfer from the system by bridging the heat generated by the power stages to the heatsink
6. Solid steel
backplate A steel, cold-rolled coil construction backplate strengthens the motherboard to prevent bending, and adds additional mass to siphon heat from the VRM.
heatsinkA chipset heatsink blends seamlessly with the aluminum heatsink cover and prominently features the ROG logo.
Push your Memory to Higher Frequencies
OPTIMEM IIIBoasting proprietary memory trace layout tweaks that improve signal integrity and mitigate noise, ASUS OptiMem III is more compatible with 3600 MHz+ memory kits, allowing them to run at higher frequencies. You can opt to optimise your memory for high frequency settings, or low latency settings and with higher capacity memory kits, OptiMem III enables you to run at maximum frequency, whereas other motherboards will trade off frequency for capacity. Stack Maximus XII Extreme with your favorite modules and maximize throughput of the new 10th Generation Intel® Core™ Comet Lake-S processor for applications that demand massive bandwidth.
Support for up to four M.2 Drives
Maximus compatibilityMaximus XII Extreme supports up to four onboard M.2 drives to maximize storage. Two can be found on the ROG DIMM.2 module, next to the memory slots, and supports drives as long as 110 mm. The other two can be found under the aluminum heatsink cover. PCIe support ensures compatibility with the very latest NVMe SSDs for ultrafast transfer speeds.
Take your Connectivity to the Next Level
1. USB 3.2 Gen 2
front-panel connectors Two front-panel USB 3.2 connectors area ready to accommodate a wide variety of devices
2. Bundled Thunderbolt™ 3 Expansion Card At a breathtaking 40Gbps you'll experience faster transfers, with four times (4X) the data speeds of any other cable and twice (2X) the video bandwidth.
3. USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 Reversible USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 Type-C™ ports provide ultimate flexibility and blazing data-transfer speeds.
The Future of Home-Networking
1. Wi-Fi 6 (AX201) Onboard Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) supports ultrafast network speeds, improved capacity and better performance in dense Wi-Fi environments, providing exceptional online gaming experiences.
2. 10 Gbps onboard Ethernet 10 Gbps onboard Ethernet provides a new level of home networking. With up to 10X the bandwidth of standard gigabit Ethernet, you'll enjoy streaming uncompressed 4K UHD videos, and backups and file transfers that are faster than ever before.
3. Intel 2.5G Ethernet Onboard Intel 2.5G Ethernet gives your wired connection a boost, with up to a 2.5X improvement over standard Ethernet connections for faster file transfers, smoother lag-free gaming and high-res video streaming.
Overclocking Intelligence Take care of complex tuning with just one click. ASUS 5-Way Optimization is a system-wide tuning utility that overclocks the processor and tunes fan speeds to ensure the best balance between cooling and acoustics. The automated CPU tuning feature of 5-Way Optimization leverages the same on-board intelligence as AI Overclocking, but goes further by running a Prime95 based stress test to deliver a result that's well-tuned from the beginning.
Flexible Cooling Controls With the ROG MAXIMUS Series you have comprehensive control over fans via Fan Xpert 4 or the media-acclaimed UEFI. Whether you are cooling with air or water, Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. Extreme Quiet mode reduces all fan speeds to below the default minimum assuring your system stays whisper-quiet when performing light tasks.
CPU Performance Boost Unleash your PC’s full performance with the ASUS AI Suite 3 utility. The TurboV Processing Unit (TPU) is the intelligence behind our automated system-tuning utility, offering the ability to fine-tune voltages, monitor system stats, and adjust overclock parameters for optimal performance.
