    THRILLING PERFORMANCE

    We've rethought and refined every aspect of Maximus XI Extreme to provide the foundation for extreme gaming systems that deliver the highest performance with efficient cooling. Featuring premium components, multiple fan headers, four M.2 slots, high speed memory support and onboard 5G Ethernet, Maximus XI Extreme is ready to take your gaming experience to new heights.

    Built for overclocking

    By default, all of Coffee Lake's major bus frequencies are derived from the same reference clock, limiting the control and flexibility needed to harness the full overclocking potential of the platform. ROG Maximus XI Extreme features a dedicated onboard clock generator that supplies dynamic reference clocks to the CPU cores and major subdomains, giving you the freedom to coax every MHz of headroom from the system.

    DDR4 4400Mhz+

    Whether you're gunning for high memory frequencies or tuning timings for the lowest latency, ROG Maximus XI Extreme provides the tools you need to exploit the Coffee Lake architecture's full potential: carefully optimized trace pathways maintain signal integrity, and the acclaimed ROG firmware offers the necessary tweaks to ensure stability while maximizing memory performance. Load up with a high-density memory kit for heavy multitasking, or run a focused setup that delivers the bandwidth your favorite games and applications need. Any way you stack it, the Extreme has you covered.

    Optimem  II

    To provide Intel's latest CPUs unfettered access to memory bandwidth, we've reimagined motherboard trace routing from the ground up. Our OptiMem II tech carefully maps memory signal pathways across different PCB layers to reduce vias and also adds shielding zones that significantly reduce crosstalk. And to further enhance overclocking headroom for fully stacked memory configurations, we've employed a highly customized T-Topology layout that delivers time-aligned signaling.
