    “It's almost the thinking persons choice. It might not be full of flash and flair in the same way a Maximus is, but it's so well rounded it's nearly spherical. It reminds us a great deal of the ASUS Z170-A. It just does everything you could realistically demand in a no-nonsense manner. We like it very much indeed.” more

    MAXIMUS VIII EXTREME

    Gold Award

    ASUS has another beast on their hands with the Maximus VIII Extreme motherboard. Holding the "Flagship" moniker for the ASUS ROG Z170 board line, the board is chock full of features and accessories including the latest edition of their OC Panel device. The Maximus VII Extreme was as pretty to look at as it was over-engineered (which also ups the aesthetic factor for me). ASUS designed the beast with a full 13 dedicated power phases for the CPU alone, meaning that the board was made to put up with anything you could throw at it and engineered for world record performance. With the exception of the CMOS battery placement, the integrated component layout was well thought out and implement with more than adequate space to use the board's numerous features.
