PERFORMANCE

Maximus XII Extreme is the ideal foundation for your dream gaming build. An intelligent voltage-regulator module (VRM) design and high-quality components ensure that you’ll get the most out of demanding latest-generation Intel processors. More firepower and an overclocking edge are yours with Maximus XII Extreme.

Teamed Power Architecture

Today’s CPU architectures place incredible demands on motherboard power design by transitioning from deep power saving modes , going from lower-power mode to full load in an instant. Our latest VRM architecture rises to the challenge by utilizing teamed power stages to rapidly swing current, while maintaining exemplary thermal performance.    

A brief history

We became the first manufacturer to implement phase-doublers when we shipped our A8N32-SLI Deluxe motherboard, back in 2005. The board's VRM was lauded for elegantly overcoming the power handling capabilities of components that were available at the time and also reducing voltage ripple. Those benefits led to phase-doublers becoming universally accepted in the industry, and they are still used for similar purposes today.    

A shift in CPU demands

While doublers help extend the number of effective phases, they do so at the cost of a processing delay.

However, today’s CPUs now pack more cores than their predecessors, and the latest instruction sets allow them to crunch computationally dense workloads at an incredible pace. In addition, they consume less power at idle and can transition between load states much more quickly. These improvements necessitate a re-evaluation of power-design priorities because phase-doublers add a propagation delay that hampers transient response.

While doublers help extend the number of effective phases, they do so at the cost of a processing delay.    

Bucking the trend

The teamed architecture allows two power stages to work in tandem to provide more power to the CPU.

Fortunately, the latest integrated power components can handle higher currents than the devices of yesteryear, making it possible to implement a simple circuit topology that isn't hamstrung by the processing lag of phase-doublers. That's why ROG Maximus XII Extreme utilizes teamed power stages to deliver higher burst current per phase, while maintaining the thermal performance of phase-doubled designs.    

Thermal performance 

Each VRM component serves a specific purpose. PWM controllers and phase-doublers control the circuit, and the power stages do the heavy lifting from an electrical and thermal standpoint. That's why ROG Maximus XII Hero utilizes 16 power stages. The power stage sits at the top of Infineon's lineup and features a low RDSON to reduce switching and conduction losses, helping to improve overall thermal headroom.    

High quality components

Dual 8-pin ProCool II power connector

Two ProCool connectors ensure a snug and reliable connection to the EPS 12V power lines.

Infineon TDA21490 power stage

The VRM features 16 infineon TDA21490 power stages, each rated to handle 90 amps.

MicroFine alloy chokes

Each Power stage is accompanied by a high-permeability alloy-core choke rated to handle 45 amps.

10K Japanese-made black metallic capacitors

Input and output filtering is provided by solid-polymer capacitors rated to last thousands of hours at high operating temperatures.    

ASUS OptiMem III

Boasting proprietary memory trace layout tweaks that improve signal integrity and mitigate noise, ASUS OptiMem III is more compatible with 4000 MHz+ memory kits, allowing them to run at higher frequencies. You can opt to optimize memory for high frequency settings, or low latency settings. 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.

COOLING

Featuring premium components, multiple fan headers and a bundled fan extension card, Maximus XII Extreme is fully equipped to enable higher performance at lower temperatures. To ensure system stability under heavy CPU loads, Maximus XII Extreme employs large VRM and chipset heatsinks that strike the right balance between surface area and mass. The extra-large heatsinks also cover multiple M.2 slots.

Cooling Heatsinks

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.

VRM heatsink

A VRM heatsink is placed on the MOSFETs and chokes, and the embedded heatpipe connects to the aluminum I/O cover.

Aluminum I/O cover

An aluminum I/O cover is connected to the primary heatsink via an embedded heatpipe, increasing mass and surface area for dissipation.

High-conductivity 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.

Extended VRM heatsink

Helps cool vital motherboard power delivery areas to enhance the overclocking potential of future processors. 

Aluminum heatsink cover

The heatsink cover is crafted from pure aluminum to efficiently cool the two onboard M.2 drives.

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.

Chipset heatsink

A chipset heatsink blends seamlessly with the aluminum heatsink cover and prominently features the ROG logo.    

Cooler by design

ROG Maximus XII Extreme features the most comprehensive cooling options ever.

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 cand includes six additional DC or PWM fan headers, plus three thermal-probe headers.

ROG Water-Cooling Zone

Dual water-temperature headers and a flow-rate header feed information straight into the AI Suite utility, allowing you to track coolant temperatures and the flow rate of the entire loop.

Water pump+

A dedicated header can supply over 3 amps to high-performance PWM or DC water pumps.

Water in/out

A dedicated header enables monitoring of temperatures at the input/output points of any component.

Water flow

A dedicated header enables constant monitoring of flow rate throughout the entire loop.    

Fan Extension Card II

ROG Maximus XII Extreme includes the new Fan Extension Card II, which adds six headers that area controllable via FanXpert 4. The card features three temperature-sensor headers to complement the one available onboard, and also comes with three thermistors that can be affixed to different components. In addition to supplying extra headers for cooling, it provides three RGB headers to provide illuminated effects for your RGB fan.

OPTIMISATION

ROG provides the tools needed to optimize your system quickly and easily. For those who relish complete control, the UEFI BIOS offers advanced customization options so you can tweak every aspect of your system.
