ASUS Maximus V FORMULA LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard
The new ASUS ROG Maximus V Formula motherboard mixes air and water cooling with superior graphics power. The Fusion Thermo heatsink integrates a 100% copper heatpipe and a water cooling channel with electroplated barb fittings to prepare you for air and water cooling. LucidLogix Virtu MVP delivers up to 60% Discrete Graphics Boost and 3X Faster Video Conversion. Moreover, the Maximus V Formula supports Quad-GPU SLI or Quad-GPU CrossFireX configuration for jaw-dropping graphics at a leve previously unseen.
SupremeFX IV builds on its predecessors, with a carefully tested set of audio capacitors that provide a warmer sound, and a new 300 ohm headphone amplifier built-in, it gives both greater grunt and better gaming audio than ever before. Combined with existing SupremeFX innovations such as the 'Red Line' physical PCB separation, and EMI shield, SupremeFX IV sets an unparalleled audio standard for PC gamers.
Intel Gb LAN and GameFirst II
The LAN solution from Intel has been long known to have a better throughput, lower CPU utilization as well as better stability. With the Intel Gigabit LAN solutions onboard, the ultimate network experience can therefore be delivered to its users like never before. Offering powerful, yet easy-to-use network control, ROG GameFirst II with cFos Traffic Shaping technology is revamped with a more intuitive ROG user interface. Featuring both an exclusive EZ Mode for beginners to setup and Advanced Mode for professional users to tweak, it means whatever your PC does in the background; your fragging will always come first!
mPCIe Combo + Dual-band Wi-Fi/Bluetooth 4.0
Hook up immediate extra connectivity to the ROG motherboard and say so 1long to physical limitations. The unique Combo attaches to the motherboard near the rear I/O, and comes with one mSATA port supporting Intel Smart Response Technology hybrid storage acceleration with compatible mSATA SSDs, and a dual band 2.4/5 GHz Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n and Bluetooth v4.0 card bundled into its mini PCI Express 2.0/USB 2.0 combo port on the opposite side. This way, you can connect extra devices without taking up valuable space on the motherboard, and get the best of both worlds: for better connectivity and expandability without sacrificing essential features.
With its sharp ROG style, the ROG Fusion Thermo is more than just a VRM cooler: it combines a 100% copper watercooling channel with electroplated nickel barbs and an integrated heatpipe, all wrapped in air-cooling fins. With the choice of both water-cooling or air-cooling, Fusion Thermo delivers the ultimate add-on to achieve that OC advantage.
