Maximus VII Impact - Mini-ITX. Max Spec


 At OC3D we love the M-ITX form factor, the ability to build powerhouse PCs with such a tiny footprint is simply amazing, and allows many or our readers to build beautiful mini PCs.

Now ASUS is soon to release their most powerful M-ITX board yet with the Maximus VII Impact, their second generation mini-ROG motherboard. We look forward to seeing what people can do with these. I even remember the last version having a full cover water block!

2nd Generation No Compromise Design


  • mPCIe Combo III card with 802.11ac and M.2 (up to PCIe 4x M.2 SSDs supported);
  • Intel GigE+LANGuard+GameFirst III;
  • SupremeFX Impact II (Sonic SenseAMP, Sonic SoundStage, Sonic Studio and Sonic Radar II);
  • Impact Control Card: KeyBot + SoundStage buttons
  • Impact CoolHub Card: 2x 4pin fan headers + LN2 mode switch
  • ROG UEFI BIOS Enhancements, including Secure Erase.
  • Maximus VII Impact - Mini-ITX. Max Spec


Five Exclusive Daughterboards


In order to maximize features, there are five exclusively designed vertical ‘daughterboards’ that provide power, sound, fan control, WiFi/SSD, ROG IO buttons. Their ultra-minimal design does not impede on component install.

Gaming or Overclocking: Built for Devil’s Canyon


Optimized for upcoming Devil’s Canyon, the new Impact overclocks like an ATX-class motherboard. The only mini-ITX Z97 with LN2 mode support.

Available: Q3 2014

Release of these boards should be sooner than I first anticipated, with this picture showing up online, showing an absolute tonne of these boards sitting ready to be shipped. Hopefully our very own TTL will be getting a sample to show us all soon!

It can support cards like the 295x2 and the TitanZ as long as you have a case that is big enough for the cardsQuote

Nice little monster I think they made it to be able to handtle the full cover waterblock made for VI Impact, but im not sure 100%. Quote

They need to send a sample to TTL. We didn't get to see the VI Impact, but who cares now that this thing is out! I've personally been itching for a Mini-ITX mb recently, and trying to find the right board is particularly challenging at the moment, (I'm just not as technically savvy as you guys ).Quote

So I want to be clear about this. If I buy a samsung SM951 M.2 and say an 880 gtx is the gpu going to be limited to 8x pci 3.0? and if so is that going to matter? and if it does matter would it matter at 1080p or only 4k?Quote
