Product Overview Zenith Extreme: 1st ROG HEDT AMD Motherboard
More than a decade ago, ROG started with the original Crosshair motherboard for Athlon 64 FX CPUs. Our history began on AMD's high-end desktop platform, and now with its X399 chipset and Ryzen Threadripper CPU, we have ROG Zenith Extreme.

Named after the highest point in the celestial body, the new Extreme brings advanced overclocking, cooling and lighting together to push the limits of dream builds.

ROG Zenith Extreme is locked, loaded and ready to rip.

WB Sensor: One Step Further
The waterblock sensor (WB_SENSOR) is an ROG proprietary connector that integrates two thermal sensors, a flow rate sensor, and a leakage detection sensor in to a single 9 pin header.

ROG will open up the connector specifications for water block vendors to develop blocks similar to the one bundled with Maximus IX Extreme.

Watercooling Zone: Monitor Your Water Cooling Loops
With the new watercooling zone, temperatures and flow rates can be read directly into DIP5—allowing peace of mind to know that everything is functioning properly, while saving the hassle of installing third party hardware.

ROG Fan Extension Card: Flexible Cooling & Control
The ASUS Fan Extension Card makes it easy to add three additional 12W fans to your setup. It’s ideal for high-performance air or water-cooled PCs – providing maximum cooling for marathon gaming sessions. It even allows for customised control of each individual fan via the UEFI BIOS or Fan Xpert software.

5 Speed 10G LAN Card Bundled: Integrated with PHY
AQUANTIA AQC-107 LAN Chip incorporates Aquantia’s AQrate PHY technology which delivers 10GbE network connectivity speed through 100 meters of CAT6a cabling enabling higher data rates with zero change to legacy cabling.

• Compatible with a Vast Range of Networks: ROG AREION 10G runs at 5 different speeds: 10Gbps, 5Gbps, 2.5Gbps, 1Gbps, 100Mbps.
• Upgrade with No Extra Cost: ROG AREION 10G runs at up to 5Gbps on existing CAT5e cables – no need to spend money on buying new ones.
• Support WOL (Wake-On-LAN): ROG AREION 10G supports S0-S5 Wake-on-LAN and PXE boot functions.

802.11 AD Wi-Fi: Fastest On-Board Wi-Fi
ROG ZENITH EXTREME is engineered with the very latest 802.11ad (WiGig) Wi-Fi for ultrafast, lag–free wireless connections of up to 4.6Gbps, delivering smooth streaming of 4K UHD video and faster, slicker VR experiences!

2x2 802.11 AC Wi-Fi MU-MIMO Support:
• Up to 867 Mbps throughput.
• Up to 46m Range.

802.11 AD Wi-Gig:

PC Cases Are Ready
ASUS has teamed up with well-known case makers Lian-Li and In-win to provide true front panel USB 3.1 connectors.

ROG Pre-Mounted I/O Shield: Not Just About Looks
Due to the unique latching mechanism of the integrated I/O shield, the new design allows for significantly greater contact between the I/O shield and the on-board connectors.

The result is an overall ESD discharge protection that is 2 times better than the industry standard.

M.2 Cooling Solution: For Unleashed Performance
To keep M.2 SSD driver cool and maintain stable performance, user can utilize M.2 heatsink, that efficiently lowers M.2 SSD temperature by 15°C, reduces the possibility of throttling in real-world scenarios, and increases drive reliability.
