ASUS launched the ROG MAXIMUS Z690 EXTREME GLACIAL motherboard, which features an integrated EK Ultra Block, developed in collaboration with EK Water Blocks.
Along with the CPU, the integrated water cooling block "EK UltraBlock" allows for cooling of the power supply circuit, chipset, and M.2 SSD. Additionally, by carefully balancing the flow path design, heat sink shape, and different sensors, steady operation is feasible even in difficult situations with prolonged periods of high load. The power supply circuit is a 24 + 1 phase, 105A power stage that utilizes high-quality components such as a "Pro Cool II" power connection, a "Micro Fine alloy choke," and a "premium metal capacitor." DDR5-6400 x 4 (maximum 128GB), M.2 (PCI-Express5.0x4) x 1, M.2 (PCI-Express4.0x4) x 4 (two of which are DIMM.2), and SATA3.0 (6Gbps) x6. The expansion slots are PCI-Express5.0 (x16) x2, PCI-Express3.0 (x1) x1, and the network is 10 Gigabit LAN x1 by Marvell AQtion, 2.5 Gigabit LAN via an Intel chip, Wi-Fi 6E + Bluetooth 5.2. E-ATX is the form factor (305x277mm).
The board is expected to cost 2000 USD.
