Asus Maximus Extreme

The Asus Maximus Extreme is an LGA 775 socket motherboard using Intel’s X38 northbridge chipset. Billed as the Ultimate Gaming and Overclocking Platform, the Maximus Extreme offers many performance enhancing features. These include CrossFire and Crosslinx technologies for graphics; Extreme Tweaker and COP EX for overclocking; and the Fusion Block System and Stack Cool 2 thermal solutions.

Graphics

The Maximus Extreme features ATI’s CrossFire technology to give the user improved image quality and faster rendering speed. This is complemented by the Catalyst Control Center, which gives the user 3D rendered previews when changing settings. The Crosslinx technology uses a dedicated controller which optimizes PCIe bandwidth allocation when using dual GPUs.

Overclocking

The Extreme Tweaker system gives the user one-stop access to overvolting, frequency adjustments, memory timing settings and many more options for maximizing performance. COP EX, meanwhile, will monitor chipset voltages and watch out for overheating. Also helping to keep the system stable are the Loadline Calibration and Voltiminder LED features. The former ensures that the CPU is fed stable and optimal power while the latter gives the user an easy way to monitor the CPU, chipsets and memory voltage status,

Cooling

The Asus Maximus Extreme features the advanced Fusion Block System as well as the Stack Cool 2 fanless solution. The Fusion Block System is a hybrid thermal design mixes the Republic of Gamers’ heatpipe system with the ability to hook up to a water cooling system. The fanless Stack Cool 2 design offers efficient heat dissipation as well as zero noise output.
