Product OverviewEnvision Your Dream Machine
Maximus XI Extreme unleashes the power of the latest Intel Z390 platform for the best gaming experiences. With optimised overclocking, high-speed memory support and comprehensive water and fan cooling controls, Maximus XI Extreme delivers ultimate performance combined with efficient, reliable operation. A blacked-out aesthetic and Aura Sync RGB lighting provide striking, customisable styling for a gaming system with the looks to match its formidable power.
We've rethought and refined every aspect of Maximus XI Extreme to provide the foundation for extreme gaming systems that deliver the highest performance with efficient cooling. Featuring premium components, multiple fan headers, four M.2 slots, high speed memory support and onboard 5G Ethernet, Maximus Extreme is ready to take your gaming experience to new heights.
Built For Overclocking
By default, all of Coffee Lake's major bus frequencies are derived from the same reference clock, limiting the control and flexibility needed to harness the full overclocking potential of the platform. ROG Maximus XI Extreme features a dedicated onboard clock generator that supplies dynamic reference clocks to the CPU cores and major subdomains, giving you the freedom to coax every MHz of headroom from the system.
Whether you're gunning for high memory frequencies or tuning timings for the lowest latency, ROG Maximus XI Extreme provides the tools you need to exploit the Coffee Lake architecture's full potential: carefully optimised trace pathways maintain signal integrity, and the acclaimed ROG firmware offers the necessary tweaks to ensure stability while maximising memory performance. Load up with a high-density memory kit for heavy multitasking, or run a focused setup that delivers the bandwidth your favourite games and applications need. Any way you stack it, the Extreme has you covered.
To provide Intel's latest CPUs unfettered access to memory bandwidth, we've reimagined motherboard trace routing from the ground up. Our OptiMem II tech carefully maps memory signal pathways across different PCB layers to reduce vias and also adds shielding zones that significantly reduce crosstalk. And to further enhance overclocking headroom for fully stacked memory configurations, we've employed a highly customised T-Topology layout that delivers time-aligned signalling.
Comprehensive Cooling Zone
ROG Maximus XI Extreme features the most comprehensive cooling controls ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS.
Design for Unthrottled Transfer Speed
Maximus XI Extreme comes equipped with four M.2 slots to let you take full advantage of Intel IRST and NVMe RAID for ultimate SSD storage speeds. Two M.2 slots on the ROG DIMM.2 module, an innovative expansion card that allows connections via a DDR4 interface, while the other two M.2 slots under the PCH heatsink connect via PCIe 3.0.
ROG DIMM.2 module is an innovative expansion card that allows two M.2 drives to be connected via a DDR4 interface. You can then add a metal heatsink, helping to control thermals for maximum performance while elevating the aesthetics.
Onboard 5G Ethernet
Designed for the demanding requirements of power users and content creators who push the envelope, onboard 5Gbps Ethernet plugs you into a new era of home networking. With up to 5X the bandwidth of standard gigabit Ethernet, you'll enjoy streaming uncompressed 4K UHD videos and backups and file transfers that are faster than ever before. And there's also support for intermediate 2.5Gbps connectivity, allowing you to step up to faster networks for maximum flexibility. Choose the bandwidth that meets your needs and enjoy ultra-low latency at any speed.
Lower CPU Workload, High TCP & UDP Throughput
ROG Maximus XI Extreme features the very latest Intel® Ethernet (I219-V) for faster, smoother gaming. Intel Ethernet controllers have a natural synergy with their processors and chipsets, reducing CPU overhead and offering exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput, so there's more power for games and other tasks.
Control Your Rig
Maximus XI Extreme is packed with intuitive and flexible tools that let you customize every aspect of your system to deliver the performance and features you want. Take advantage of 5-Way Optimization for intelligent, automatic overclocking or enjoy full manual control via comprehensive BIOS settings. Together with customizable audio profiles and tools to optimize storage and networking performance, Maximus XI Extreme gives you the ability to create an expertly tuned machine with minimal effort.
ASUS AI Overclocking makes automatic tuning faster and smarter than ever before. Available in Windows or directly through the UEFI, it profiles the CPU and cooling to predict the optimal configuration for each individual system.
Immerse yourself in sound with SupremeFX audio technology. Utilizing the S1220 codec, SupremeFX is the integrated-audio solution that's engineered to provide a flat frequency response for a neutral, detailed sound signature. And to ensure that pristine signature is perfectly preserved, the front-panel output is driven with dual op amps, delivering sonics with the scale and authority to create virtual worlds via your gaming headset.
GameFirst V is the ROG-exclusive tool that optimizes network traffic for faster, lag-free online gaming. Team your gateways, keeps tabs on bandwidth-hogging apps and make adjustments on the fly.
The brand-new Armoury Crate portal keeps you updated with the latest drivers and BIOS releases. Its easy-to-use UI can be configured to show a variety of information, including security updates, bug patches, the latest ROG news, gaming events and special offers.
Personalized For You
In addition to extraordinary performance, Maximus XI Extreme provides extensive styling and customization options to let you build a system that truly stands apart. With a LiveDash OLED panel for displaying system stats and custom graphics and AURA RGB lighting that synchronizes with a vast ecosystem of compatible products, Maximus XI Extreme is primed for endless personalization.
Grow Your Gaming World
Gear up with ROG components, from graphics and monitors, to mice and keyboards, and up your game with complementary aesthetics, control and compatibility. The ROG ecosystem is more extensive than any competing brand, so enjoy greater choice as your system expands.
Maximus XI Extreme motherboards are equipped with LiveDash — a built-in OLED panel that displays useful information and customizable graphics. During the power-on, self-test (POST) phase, LiveDash shows key progress stats, in simple language and via traditional POST codes. Then, during normal operation, the vibrant panel shows a choice of CPU frequency, device temperatures, fan speeds or information from the Water Cooling Zone. You're also able to customize the default LiveDash GIF, so it'll display your own image or animation.
