ROG has partnered with EK Water Blocks to create an integrated VRM water-cooling solution that keeps the massive power of the latest AMD Ryzen processors under control. Keeping with the water-cooling theme, the ROG Crosshair VIII Formula features on-board lighting that casts a "rainfall" design which pops against the board's mirror finish and is accented by the ROG logo. With its incredible cooling performance and gamer-oriented features, ROG Crosshair VIII Formula is the perfect foundation for your next high-performance gaming rig?.?

CHILLING DESIGN

Effective cooling is extremely important, so the ROG Crosshair VIII Formula provides comprehensive cooling features that enable higher performance at lower temperatures.?

EXPERTLY TOOLED TOTALLY COOLED CROSSCHILL EK III

CrossChill EK III lets you cool with air and water. The redesigned cooling channels provide wider copper, delivering up to 29.3°C-lower MOSFET temperatures on water, and the standard G1/4" threaded fittings mean CrossChill EK III easily fits existing setups — so you can enjoy efficient, quiet cooling with the minimum effort.

COMPREHENSIVE COOLING ZONE

ROG Crosshair VIII Formula features the most comprehensive cooling options ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS.

HEATSINKS

Heatsinks are extremely important for motherboards, as they absorb heat from critical areas to ensure components do not stagger due to overheating. With VRM, PCH and M.2 heatsinks, ROG Crosshair VIII Formula ensures efficient and stable operation even when pushed hard.

CrossChill EK III

Designed and engineered in cooperation with EKWB, the CrossChill EK III hybrid cooling offers air or liquid cooling for up to 29.3°C temperature reduction to keep the motherboard MOSFETs cool for high overclocks.

M.2 Heatsink

ROG Crosshair VIII Formula is equipped with a stylish M.2 heatsink that keeps your SSD cool. By efficiently dissipating heat away from the M.2 area, it minimizes the possibility of the performance-sapping throttling that can happen when drives become too warm.

Active PCH Heatsink

With double the bandwidth via PCIe 4.0, the X570 platform poses greater thermal challenge than its X470 predecessor. The PCH heatsink has a dedicated fan to efficiently combat temperature-induced throttling that can slow performance during sustained transfer.

BOOSTED PERFORMANCE

ROG Crosshair VIII Formula comes equipped with an optimized power-design layout to handle the prodigious power of the latest AMD Ryzen processors without throttling.

POWER DESIGN THAT BUCKS TRENDS 

The monstrous compute power of multi-core processors necessitates a power circuit that rapidly responds to massive current swings. Featuring an array of 16 strategically paired power stages, the Formula's VRM is geared for any workload and all operating conditions.

UNCOMPLICATED SYSTEM TUNING?

ROG gives you powerful tools that make optimizing your system fast and easy. For those who relish fine-grained control, the UEFI BIOS has a wealth of advanced options organized into intuitive categories that provide the ability to tweak every aspect of your system?.

ACCURATE VOLTAGE MONITORING

Conventional motherboards use single-ended sensing tapped from a location that isn't ideal, leading to a large disparity between the actual voltage fed to the CPU and the value reported to software. The Formula features a differential sensing circuit that simplifies overclocking and tuning by allowing you to track voltages more accurately.?

PERFORMANCE LEVEL UP

AI Suite 3's dashboard-style control panel lets you fine-tune almost every aspect of your system. Get the best balance between performance, cooling, stability, and efficiency via one simple and intuitive interface.?

ULTRAFAST CONNECTION

ROG Crosshair VIII Formula offers advanced connectivity to ensure seamless gaming experiences. With the latest ultrafast networking, including Wi-Fi 6 (802.11x) and dual Ethernet with one 5G port, ROG Crosshair VIII Formula removes all bottlenecks for online and LAN play, minimizing lag and providing an overall smoother experience. Additionally, the M.2 supports AMD StoreMI technology to maximize the speed of your SSD for faster load times, and SupremeFX on-board audio provides superb sound, while saving a PCIe slot.?

WIFI 6 (AX200)

ROG Crosshair VIII Formula comes with on-board Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) support, offering ultrafast networking speeds, improved network capacity and better performance in dense Wi-Fi environments for exceptional online gaming experiences with the convenience of a wireless connection.

5GBPS ONBOARD ETHERNET

Designed for the demanding requirements of power users and content creators who push the envelope, onboard 5Gbps Ethernet plugs you into a new era of home networking. With up to 5X the bandwidth of standard gigabit Ethernet, you'll enjoy streaming uncompressed 4K UHD videos, backups and file transfers that are faster than ever before. Formula supports intermediate 2.5Gbps connectivity, allowing you to step up to faster networks for maximum flexibility. Choose the bandwidth that meets your needs and enjoy ultra-low latency at any speed.

INTEL ETHERNET

ROG Crosshair VIII Formula features the latest Intel® Ethernet (I211-AT) ensuring data exchanges with your network and the outside world are fast and smooth. Intel LAN reduces CPU overhead and increases TCP and UDP throughput, keeping more processing power.

SupremeFX

Immerse yourself in sound with SupremeFX audio technology. Utilizing the S1220 codec, SupremeFX is the integrated-audio solution that's engineered to provide a flat frequency response for a neutral, detailed sound signature. And to ensure that pristine signature is perfectly preserved, the front-panel output is driven with dual op amps, delivering sonics with the scale and authority to create virtual worlds via your gaming headset.

UNTHROTTLED TRANSFER SPEED

Dual PCIe 4.0 M.2 Slot support up to 22110 and provide NVMe SSD RAID support for an incredible performance boost. Create a RAID configuration with up to two PCIe 4.0 storage devices to enjoy the fastest data-transfer speeds on the 3rd Generation AMD Ryzen platform.

AMD STOREMI

AMD StoreMI technology is a software utility that accelerates any drive for better system responsiveness with reduced startup and software load times. It combines SSD performance with the affordability and capacity of an HDD by automatically moving frequently accessed data to dedicated SSD storage.?

ASUS NODE CONNECTOR?

ASUS Node is a proprietary bi-directional interface that allow ASUS motherboards to communicate with other system components, opening up a wealth of new options for system builders.?

THE POWER TO PERSONALIZE

ROG provides a range of intuitive software that enables easy control of your advanced gaming hardware and ensures seamless component compatibility. From RGB lighting, networking and audio to storage optimization and more, ROG gives you the power to personalize your system just the way you want.?  

GAMEFIRST V NETWORK CONTROL

GameFirst V is an ROG-exclusive tool that optimizes network traffic and your connection for faster, lag-free online gaming. Select the best Wi-Fi channel for maximum stability and minimum interference, team your gateways and keep tabs on bandwidth-hogging apps, all from an intuitive interface that enables easy, on-the-fly adjustments.

ARMOURY CRATE

Armoury Crate is a new software utility designed to give you centralized control of supported ROG gaming products. From a single intuitive interface, Armoury Crate lets you easily customize RGB lighting and effects for every compatible device in your arsenal and synchronize them with Aura Sync for uni?ed system lighting effects. The software also provides control of settings for a select and growing number of ROG products, including keyboard and mouse preferences as well as laptop overclocking and fan speeds, making it easier to tune the look and feel of your system. Armoury Crate even features dedicated product registration and ROG news areas to help you stay in touch with the ROG gaming community.

RAMCACHE III

RAMCache turns milliseconds into microseconds to boost game-load times. Fully compatible with the latest NVM Express storage options, its uniquely intelligent technology effectively caches an entire storage device so that favorite games and apps launch at breakneck speeds.
