ASUS Maximus IV Extreme-Z Motherboard wants to be poked and prodded

by Rafael Hernandez on September 1, 2011 · 0 comments

The ASUS Maximus IV Extreme-Z motherboard is set to become the company’s gold standard when it comes to tweaking and overclocking your PC. Its Intel Z68 based design will gladly accept your LGA1155 CPU but you’re going to want to pair it up with a K series processor in order to get the most out of your purchase. If you have doubts about its tweaking merits then put them aside since the board features easily accessible voltage reading points so you know just how much power your components are receiving and dip switches that allow you to enable or disable specific PCI Express slots, of which there are four X16 sized. They’ve even gone so far as to add a pair of power plugs that should bolster the power your PCIe slots receive so your graphics cards should stay nice and stable regardless of the sort of load they’re under. If you add it all up and take into account their usually extensive overclocking features this will be one tough board to beat.
