Asus ROG MAXIMUS XII FORMULA Intel Z490 ATX DDR4 AURA Motherboard - LGA 1200

ROG Maximus XII series motherboards are designed to explore the upper echelons of gaming and overclocking. The Formula is plumbed for custom liquid cooling and includes other enhancements to punctuate premium systems. The CrossChill EK III VRM block, co-developed with EK Water Blocks, help cope with higher VRM loads associated with Intel Comet Lake CPUs. Aesthetically, Maximus XII Formula has a stealthy black finish with intricate patterns cut into its reflective armor. The latest-generation Formula is all set to make your showcase rig shine.

Performance
The Intel Comet Lake processor features 10 cores and a peak single-core Turbo speed that exceeds 5.3 GHz right out of the box. To cope with this increased demand on the system, Maximus XII Formula takes advantage of its intelligent VRM design and uses quality components to ensure the best gaming and daily productive computing experience.

Cooling
The focus on maximising performance would be futile without similar dedication to improving the cooling that allows systems to sustain faster speeds. The CrossChill EK III VRM block enables Maximus XII Formula to cope with the high VRM loads of ten core CPUs. The hybrid cooling system sits atop of a heatpipe that's directly linked to the extended VRM heatsink, giving it cooling capabilities that surpass the requirements of this current generation.

CrossChill EK III
CrossChill EK III lets you cool with air and water. The redesigned copper cooling channel is wider to provide up to 37.2°C-lower MOSFET temperatures on water, while the standard G1/4" threaded fittings allow it to fit existing setups for efficient, quiet cooling with minimum effort.

WiFi 6 (AX201)
Onboard WiFi 6 (802.11ax) supports ultrafast wireless-networking speeds, improved capacity and better performance in dense WiFi environments, providing exceptional online gaming experiences.
Pair your motherboard with ASUS WiFi 6 routers to fully experience the networking potential of WiFi 6.

10 Gbps onboard Ethernet
Designed to meet the demanding requirements of power users and content creators, 10 Gbps onboard Ethernet provides a new level of home networking. With up to 10X the bandwidth of standard gigabit Ethernet, you'll enjoy streaming uncompressed 4K UHD videos, and backups and file transfers that are faster than ever before.
