ASUS may have already announced a slew of ROG branded Intel Kaby Lake motherboards, however the company isn’t done yet as it has finally announced the availability of its top of the line Kaby Lake motherboard, and it has made things a little special by partnering with local popular PC modders here. Starting from 4th-18th March 2017, the ROG Maximus IX Extreme motherboard can be preordered at a special price of RM3,319 (originally at RM3,419) from Emarque, LucroPC, and Mod N Go Design, this motherboard has the performance and features that PC modders and overclockers will ever need.
The ROG Maximus IX Extreme is based on Intel’s Z270 chipset and supports DDR4-4133MHz memory, it also comes with the SupremeFX S1220 codec with a 113dB signal-to-noise ratio for great audio performance. The motherboard is a rather solidly built one and it offers comprehensive protection with a pre-mounted I/O shield, reinforced SafeSlot and SafeDIMM, and copper-plate motherboard edge. For PC modders, the motherboard will offers a comprehensive solution over your water cooling setup with the combined effort from ASUS and Bitpower, which you can cool your system with the integrated ROG monoblock, liquid-conduction-cooled M.2 heatsink and eight radiator-fan headers.
Otherwise, the ROG Maximus IX Extreme offers a lot of connectivity features onboard, which includes 2×2 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Thunderbolt 3, front panel USB 3.1, a fast Intel I219-V LAN, and three PCI-E x16 slots that will support both NVIDIA SLI and AMD CrossFireX.
