ASUS unleashes their Crosshair VI Extreme AM4 motherboard

 
Up until now ASUS' Crosshair VI Hero has been one of the world's top tier AM4 (X370) series motherboards, achieving several overclocking records and delivering a highly robust design which has received frequent BIOS enhancements over time. 
 
ASUS has now created something even grander to sit on top as their new AM4 flagship, the Crosshair VI Extreme, which comes with a larger overall mainboard design and offers several additional features like built-in WiFi and offers full compatibility with a custom designed Bitspower monoblock to offer full loop integration with temperature and flow rate monitoring as well as advanced leak detection features. 

This monoblock will be available separately after purchase, offering a unique water cooling experience. 
 
 

Performance and overclocking are inextricably tied to cooling, so we’re constantly looking for ways to improve thermal management. For a high-end board like the Extreme, that means supplying everything needed for sophisticated liquid loops, starting with a special header for monitoring monoblock temperatures, flow rates, and leak detection circuits. We’ve already partnered with the experts at Bitspower to produce a monoblock made specifically for the Extreme that will be sold separately from the motherboard.

Like the Crosshair VI Hero, this motherboard will come with support for ASUS Aura Sync as well as ASUS' latest SupremeFX integrated Audio. 

This motherboard will release for $349 in the US in early August, it is expected that this motherboard will release in Europe within a similar timeframe.

Sooo ... a board where the huge ATX cable mounts side on. That's something I hope filters down to lower models too.Quote

I agree completely. Hopefully the same eventually happens for all motherboards and also the 6/8 pin connection on the top left of most motherboards too.

Would make it looks so much neater and not need to worry about leaving enough slack in the cable to not break the cables themselves inside the sleeving because of the bend.Quote

Yup, completely making every one who said it was not possible look rather daft.

There is no reason not to do it like that apart from money. It really is as simple as that.Quote

I actually disagree. In my building experience a right-angled jack can cause issues with stiff braided cables. If the grommet doesn't like up perfectly with the 24-pin jack then it can be a nightmare.Quote

This.

I remember many years ago, when they used to be the way that this has it. It didn't matter then, because none really cared much about tidying cables anyway. But now it means that you have to pay very close attention to where those grommets are in your case. Prior to purchase.

Or mod a new hole in.Quote
