Maximus Vi Extreme Is the Ultimate Power Platform
Designed with insight and advice from worldwide overclocking legends and built using industry-leading ROG R&D expertise, it packs the revolutionary monitoring and tweaking of OC Panel and tons of overclocking features that take performance to the next level.
For total stability, new-gen Extreme Engine Digi+ III is integrated, supporting the most extreme tuning. You get 4-way SLI™/CrossFireX™ and massive connectivity with the latest standards, including mPCIe Combo II, which offers 802.11ac Wi-Fi and M.2 (NGFF) SSD support. There’s also an upgraded UEFI BIOS, helping Maximus VI Extreme stand out: it’s already scored 7GHz+ CPU speeds and RAM frequencies close to 4GHz!
Get your hands on real-time system monitoring and tweaking in two modes. Normal Mode has OC Panel inside the case, while in Extreme Mode it works as an external console. For both, its clear 2.6” display keeps you fully informed and in control of maximum available power. Click the upper right tab to learn more!
Extreme Engine Digi+ III
Completely digital architecture attains total control over the Fully Integrated Voltage Regulators (FIVR) of Intel® processors to supply the highest stability and precision for the CPU and memory. The design features dynamic speed adjustments alongside intricate manual controls that allow you to push processors and RAM beyond their limits.
Power components are also upgraded. NexFET MOSFETs handle up to 90% efficiency in high current delivery under normal operation and better durability in half the size of standard MOSFETs. Exclusive BlackWing chokes remain cool even when sizzling with as much as 60 amps of power with 3-5°C lower temps and minimal-loss power delivery. Japan-made 10K Black Metallic capacitors last five times longer and deliver 20% greater extreme temperature endurance than generic solid state capacitors, easily standing up to hardcore demands.
mPCIe Combo II
The next evolution of the mPCIe Combo card gives you even better expandability with the latest standards in connectivity and easy install. You get mini PCI Express 2.0 plus USB 2.0 with an included dual-band 2.4GHz/5GHz Wi-Fi 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.0 module, powered by ASUS-exclusive Wi-Fi GO! Remote and Wi-Fi Engine, which maximize performance for better experiences. It’s an instant upgrade to the fastest wireless right on your desktop. All without having to sacrifice a PCI Express slot!
The compact but versatile mPCIe Combo II further future-proofs your build with Next Generation Form Factor (NGFF) connectivity for SSDs. NGFF is a fast and power-efficient standard that aims to replace mPCIe and mSATA, designed to optimize SSD performance. mPCIe Combo II works with your high speed NGFF SSDs and makes the most of their potential, helping you reduce load times to run your OS and games even faster.
SSD Secure Erase
SSD performance degrades with time due to overwrite action. ROG is the world’s first motherboard brand to integrate SSD Secure Erase into UEFI BIOS for better compatibility and easier use, offering the best removal method to completely delete all data on an SSD to recover lost performance and restore factory speeds.
