Featuring a stylish angular design replete with an awesome glowing ROG eye logo, the M.2 heatsink adds a beautiful touch to the build, while the T-sensor detects temperatures in the vital M.2 area for instant monitoring.
FULLY DOMINATE YOUR WATER-COOLING SYSTEM
WATER COOLING ZONE
ROG's innovative Water Cooling Zone lets you monitor your cooling system like never before. The dual water-temperature headers and flow-rate header of the ROG Water Cooling Zone feeds information straight into ROG's intuitive Fan Xpert 4 utility ─ so you can stay on top of the heat and stay cool in every game!
AURA LIGHTING CONTROL
Customize your own favorite LED effects with intuitive, ASUS-exclusive lighting-control software. Aura RGB technology makes it possible to cast a stunning multicolor glow across your entire build, via the ROG Crosshair VI Extreme's brilliant built-in RGB LEDs or attached RGB strips via the two onboard 4-pin headers ─ all lights will perform in perfect synchronization! Fire up Aura and enjoy the creative freedom of nine different lighting schemes!
RGB LIGHTING PERFECTED
ROG Crosshair VI Extreme includes a dedicated addressable RGB header that connects to compatible lighting strips, fans, coolers, and compatible PC cases — all to create a new world of illumination possibilities. Aura software offers an array of effects for addressable gear, and the Aura SDK takes things to the next level — allowing developers to control each LED individually, unleashing infinite lighting possibilities!
EXQUISITE AUDIO, INSIDE AND OUT
NEW SUPREMEFX CODEC
ROG SupremeFX audio technology has levelled up with ROG Crosshair VI Extreme, delivering an exceptional 113dB signal-to-noise ratio on the line-in connection for best-ever recording quality — and 120dB on line-out for crystal-clear sound. We've also added a low-dropout regulator for cleaner power delivery to the SupremeFX S1220 codec, plus Texas Instruments RC4580 and OPA1688 op-amps for high gain with low distortion. It all adds up to audio that envelops you as never before!
INTUITIVE AUDIO-TUNING SUITE
SONIC STUDIO III
Sonic Studio III now supports HRTF-based (head-related transfer function) virtual surround for VR headsets, casting an immersive aural landscape that draws you deeper into the action. The Sonic Studio GUI also offers a range of EQ options, allowing you to tailor acoustics to suit personal preferences or the characteristics of your headset.
UNLEASH 32GBPS SSD SPEEDS
ROG Crosshair VI Extreme offers dual PCIe 3.0 x4 M.2 slots that provide NVMe SSD RAID support for an incredible performance boost. Create a RAID configuration with up to two PCIe 3.0 storage devices via the dual M.2 slots to enjoy the fastest data-transfer speeds on the AMD Ryzen processors platform!
MORE THROUGHPUT AND LESS PROCESSING EQUALS FASTER ONLINE PLAY
ROG Crosshair VI Extreme features the very latest Intel I211-AT Ethernet controller for faster, smoother gaming. Intel's LAN has the serious double advantage of reducing CPU overhead and offering exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput, so there's more power for your game and your gameplay.
PUMPED-UP THROUGHPUT, BEST SURGE PROTECTION
LANGuard means safer, more reliable connections for your battles! Advanced signal-coupling technology and premium surface-mounting processes join forces to protect your ROG Crosshair VI Extreme connection, plus electrostatically guarded and surge-protected components (ESD Guards) provide 1.9X-greater tolerance to static electricity and 2.5X-greater protection against surges — up to 15kV!
OC DESIGN (BASE-CLOCK GENERATOR)
ASUS PRO CLOCK TECHNOLOGY
A dedicated base-clock generator designed for Ryzen® processors allows overclocked base-clock frequencies up to or beyond 150MHz. This custom solution works in tandem with the ASUS TurboV Processing Unit (TPU) to enhance voltage and base-clock overclocking control — providing an exciting new way to boost performance to extreme heights.
DDR4 OVERCLOCKING STRENGTH IN NUMBERS
DDR4 OC 3200MHZ+
With support for DDR4 memory you're able to drive memory frequencies to 3200MHz — or beyond!
