Yes / No Overview Designed for hardcore custom water cooling and featuring intelligent overclocking on 9th generation Intel® Core™ processors, the ROG Maximus XI Formula takes high-end gaming to the next level. Connect liquid loops to the CrossChill EK III VRM block for optimal cooling. Customizable AURA Sync lighting and integrated LiveDash OLED display elevates the styling. Designed for 9th and 8th generation Intel® Core™ processors to maximize connectivity and speed with dual M.2, USB 3.1 Gen 2, onboard 802.11ac Wi-Fi and ASUS OptiMem II for better DRAM overclocking stability Revamped 5-Way Optimization overclocks intelligently based on smart prediction and thermal telemetry while FanXpert 4 delivers dynamic system cooling Dedicated water cooling headers and built-in CrossChill EK III water block allow monitoring of water temperature and flow without a standalone controller Aura Sync RGB lighting with addressable headers features a nearly endless spectrum of colors with the ability to synchronize effects across an ever-expanding ecosystem of Aura Sync enabled products Pre-mounted I/O shield ensures streamlined installation and represents ROG’s attention to detail and quality Videos Features 5-Way Optimization Fast, intuitive control is vital for effective command of your rig, so weve loaded the ROG Maximus XI Formula with simple, flexible tools that let you tweak almost every system aspect. Enjoy intelligent automated tuning with 5-Way Optimization technology, or dive deep into the revered ROG UEFI BIOS to take full manual control. Formula also makes short work of fine-tuning everything from sonics to storage, so its easy to get every part of your system up to speed. Optimem II Our OptiMem II tech carefully maps memory signal pathways across different PCB layers to reduce vias and also adds shielding zones that significantly reduce crosstalk. And to further enhance overclocking headroom for fully stacked memory configurations, weve employed a highly customized T-Topology layout that delivers time-aligned signaling. Built for overclocking By default, all of Coffee Lakes major bus frequencies are derived from the same reference clock, limiting the control and flexibility needed to harness the full overclocking potential of the platform. The Maximus XI Formula features a dedicated onboard clock generator that supplies dynamic reference clocks to the CPU cores and major subdomains, giving you the freedom to coax every MHz of headroom from the system. Expertly tooled. Totally Cooled. ROG Maximus XI Formula features the most comprehensive cooling controls ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS. Each header can be set to monitor and react to four user-configurable thermal sensors, for workload based cooling. All easily managed by Fan Xpert 4 or UEFI. Personalized for you With Aura Sync to unleash synchronized illumination effects that extend from motherboard to a vast ecosystem of compatible components, and the LiveDash OLED panel to display system stats and custom visuals, the ROG Maximus XI Formula is primed for endless personalization.
