ROG Maximus Z690 EXTREME GLACIAL 12th Gen Intel ATX Motherboard

ASUS Extreme Glacial

The Z690 Flagship ROG Maximus Z690 Extreme Glacial is the pinnacle of liquid-cooled engineering. It features an eye-catching monolithic cooling system known simply as the EK UltraBlock, which can effortlessly chill the entire motherboard with a carefully engineered labyrinth of water channels, sensors, and heatsinks. The Z690 Extreme Glacial also builds upon knowledge gained from engineering the previous generation to ambitiously expand an already ample landscape of heatsinks and coolant circulation. Two additional M.2 slots now benefit from UltraBlock magic, and VRM cooling has been boosted even further to support the power stages that 12th Gen Intel Core processors can take advantage of.

A Breathtaking Thermal Solution

ROG X EK Ultrablock The Z690 Extreme Glacial UltraBlock is far more than a heatsink with water channels. This product of a close collaboration with industry leader EK Water Blocks is a complete solution for custom-loop motherboard cooling, covering the CPU, VRMs, onboard M.2 slots, PCH, and even the integrated LAN. EK Active Contact Cooling can keep M.2 drives at optimal temperatures, while 57 microfins swiftly channel water over the central processor. The ROG Water-Cooling Zone offers a sensor array that continually monitors coolant flow, temperatures, and seal integrity, and the PCH cooling block features a fin stack to enhance heat dissipation. Meanwhile, the UltraBlock has an aesthetic to match its performance, thanks to the industry-first AniMe Matrix display and a 2-inch OLED LiveDash that can display live system stats.

WIFI 6EOnboard WiFi 6E technology takes advantage of the newly available radio spectrum in the 6 GHz band, providing up to three times the bandwidth of the 5 GHz band and up to seven 160 MHz bands to deliver ultrafast wireless networking speeds along with improved capacity and better performance in dense wireless environments.

MARVELL® AQTION 10 GBPS ETHERNETDesigned to meet the demanding requirements of power users and content creators, 10 Gbps onboard Ethernet provides a new level of home networking. With up to 10 times the bandwidth of standard gigabit Ethernet, you'll enjoy streaming uncompressed 4K UHD videos and system backups and file transfers that are faster than ever before.

INTEL® 2.5 GB ETHERNETOnboard 2.5 Gb Ethernet gives your wired connection a boost, with up to a 2.5X improvement over standard Ethernet connections for faster file transfers, smoother lag-free gaming and high-res video streaming.

Maximise Your Storage Capabilities


PCIe 5.0 ReadyROG Maximus Z690 Extreme Glacial is equipped with a PCIe 5.0 slot ideal for video cards and two PCIe 5.0 slots designed for M.2 drives, putting it on the cutting edge of GPU and storage device technology.


ROG DIMM.2The 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 aesthetics.

Aesthetics to Take Your Breath Away

Aura SyncUp your game with complementary Aura Sync enhanced aesthetics, featuring preset lighting effects that can be easily synchronised across compatible ROG graphics cards, monitors, mice and keyboards to give your setup a unified look.

Anime Matrix LEDThis innovative display features an RGB grid of mini LEDs that can be programmed to show off style with custom lighting designs, unique animations and live audio visualizations. Plus, distinctive soundwave lighting effects can even flash to the sound of a person’s voice.

LIVEDASH OLEDThe ROG Maximus Z690 Extreme Glacial includes LiveDash, a built-in 2-inch OLED panel that shows useful information and features customizable graphics. During the power-on, self-test (POST) phase, the OLED shows key stats in simple language using traditional POST codes. In normal operation, the panel can be programmed to show CPU frequency, device temperatures, fan speeds or water-cooling information. You can also personalise the default OLED GIF with a preferred image or animation.
