EXPERTLY TOOLED TOTALLY COOLED CROSSCHILL EK II
CrossChill EK II lets you cool with air or water, no fan required! Redesigned cooling fins deliver up to 35°C-lower MOSFET temperatures on water, and the standard G1/4" threaded fittings mean CrossChill EK II easily fits existing setups - so you you'll benefit from efficient, quiet cooling with the minimum of effort!
ROG Maximus X Formula 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 temperatures in real time.
Maximus X Formula is equipped with LiveDash, a built-in 1.3" 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 panel shows a choice of CPU frequency, device temperatures, fan speeds or information from the Water Cooling Zone. You're even able to customize the default LiveDash GIF, so that it'll display your own image or animation.
ASUS Aura offers full RGB lighting control with a variety of functional presets for the built-in RGB LEDs as well as strips connected to the onboard RGB headers. And it can all be synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-capable ASUS hardware.
RGB LIGHTING PERFECTED
Maximus X Formula features a pair of onboard 5050 RGB headers and a pair of addressable headers that can be connected to compatible lighting strips, fans, coolers, and PC cases, creating a new world of illumination possibilities.
