Power Delivery Enhancements

POWER DELIVERY ENHANCEMENTS Modern CPU architectures up the ante for motherboard power design by transitioning from deep power saving modes to full load almost instantaneously. Our latest VRM architecture rises to the challenge by utilizing teamed power stages to rapidly swing current, while maintaining exemplary thermal performance.

1. 8-pin ProCool II power connector Ensures a snug and reliable connection to the EPS 12V power lines.

2. 70A
Power Stage
The VRM has 16 power stages, each rated to handle 70 amps

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

4. 10K Black
Metallic Capacitors
Input and output filtering is provided by solid-polymer capacitors rated to last thousands of hours at high operating temperatures.

Cooler by Design

COMPREHENSIVE COOLING ZONEEnjoy comprehensive control over fans and water pumps, via either Fan Expert 4 or our UEFI. Whether you're cooling with air or water, Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. There's also an Extreme Quiet mode, which reduces all fan speeds to below the default minimum — keeping your system whisper-quiet when performing light tasks.

Thermometer sensors

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.

Fan detectors and headers

4-pin PWM/DC Fan Every onboard header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.

CrossChill hybrid thermal design

Optimem 3

Upgraded VRM WaterblockCrossChill 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.

Unprecedented Thermal Dominance

Heatsinks

Perfect for Water-Cooling Enthusiasts The focus on maximizing 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.

1. CrossChill
Hybrid Thermal Design
Engineered with a copper cooling channel that's incredibly effective at removing heat.

2. Large Diameter Heatpipe The U-shaped design provides rapid and even heat transfer from the VRM to the extended VRM heatsink.​

3. M.2 HeatsinkThe M.2 heatsink keeps the M.2 SSD at the optimum operating temperature for consistent performance and reliability.

4.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.

5. Extended
VRM heatsink
The extended heatsink at the end of heatpipe increases thermal mass to offset the additional heat generated by high power consumption.

6. Chipset
heatsink
A dedicated chipset heatsink draws heat away to maintain optimum operating temperatures.​

7. Solid steel
backplate
An electro-galvanized, cold-rolled coil construction backplate resists bending, and helps draw heat away from the VRM.

Push your Memory to Higher Frequencies

Optimem 3

OPTIMEM IIIBoasting proprietary memory trace layout tweaks that improve signal integrity and mitigate noise, ASUS OptiMem III is more compatible with 3600 MHz+ memory kits, allowing them to run at higher frequencies. You can opt to optimise 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 Formula with your favorite modules and maximize throughput of the new 10th Generation Intel® Core™ Comet Lake-S processor for applications that demand massive bandwidth.

Support for up to Three M.2 Drives

M.2 Support

Maximus compatibilityThree M.2 slots are wired directly to the PCH. One slot supports both SATA and PCIe 3.0 x4 modes, while the other two supports PCIe 3.0 x4 for NVMe. Additional Intel® Optane™ memory recognizes, remembers, and speeds up access to most frequently used files, applications, and games for faster, more responsive performance.
