ROG ZENITH EXTREME
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 & 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.
AURA LIGHTING CONTROL
Customise your own favorite LED effects with Aura, the intuitive lighting-control software, to cast a stunning multi-color glow across your build via the ROG Zenith Extreme's brilliant built-in RGB LEDs or attached RGB strips via the two onboard 4-pin headers „Ÿ all lights will perform in perfect synchronisation. Fire up Aura and enjoy the creative freedom of nine different lighting schemes!
DIMM.2 WITH FAN HOLDER
ROG Zenith Extreme's DIMM.2 module is a bundled expansion card that allows two M.2 drives to be connected via a DDR4 interface. You can then add a memory fan to direct cool air to the M.2 drives to prevent throttling, ensuring maximum performance.
PERFECTED COOLING FOR UNLEASHING PERFORMANCE / PCH M.2 HEATSINK
ROG Zenith Extreme is equipped with an M.2 heatsink integrated into the PCH heatsink. With a huge cooling surface, the heatsink perfectly chills an inserted M.2 SSD — for maximum performance and reliability. Featuring a stylish angular design replete with an awesome glowing ROG eye logo, the heatsink adds a beautiful touch to the build, while the T-sensor allows you to connect a thermal probe and monitor M.2 drive temps in real-time.
FLEXIBLE COOLING AND CONTROL
The ASUS Fan Extension Card makes it easy to add three additional fans and a complimentary array of thermal probes to your setup. And each header can be comprehensively controlled fan via the UEFI BIOS or our Fan Xpert 4 software. It's ideal for high-performance air or water-cooled PCs — providing maximum cooling for marathon gaming sessions.
ROG has elevated onboard audio once again on the flagship Zenith Extreme. The front panel headphone output features a SABRE9018Q2C integrated DAC/AMP capable of reaching -115dB THD+N to provide playback that conveys all the subtlety and nuances of the audio track. The improved resolution derived from the ESS Hyperstream™ DAC architecture expands the soundstage to give a better sense of positioning. Beyond resolution, the 121dB DNR provides an extremely low noise-floor, further accentuating dynamics and punch. And, when you want to shift priority to musicality, our Sonic Studio software provides an array of EQ options, allowing the sound signature to be tweaked to suit your cans.
ROG Zenith Extreme is ingeniously engineered with two distinct backplates, providing both form and function. The small, strong backplate prevents the motherboard from bending and bowing, ensuring that the voltage-regulator module's MOSFETs stay in direct contact for uninterrupted cooling and stable temperatures. The second, larger backplate is all about aesthetics: a style statement that's as bold as ROG Zenith Extreme is powerful.
