[HotHardware] ASUS Z390 Maximus XI Extreme Motherboard Leaks with DC DIMM
ASUS ROG Maximus XI Extreme is an extended ATX (E-ATX) motherboard that looms large over the lineup. We don't have a ton of details about the motherboard, but from looking at the press render, we can see a robust VRM with beefy cooling, two reinforced PCI Express x16 slots (plus one more that is no reinforced, for three total), and at least six SATA 6Gbps ports.
We can also see onboard Start and Reset buttons, both positioned below a diagnostic LED, and a small OLED display situated on top of the fixed I/O shield. This is not the first time that ASUS has plopped an OLED display onto a high-end motherboard. On previous models, users could have the display real-time system information, such as clock speeds, fan speeds, temps, and so forth, or have it show custom messages.
The folks at Videocardz obtained photos suggesting the ROG Maximus XI series will support double-capacity RAM. Apparently G.Skill is readying a TridentZ RGB DC memory kit, and a company called ZADAK is getting in on the action too.
Interested in this board, too early now but is this really a true e-atx board? Going to throw this in a 750D (willing to look at other options), should fit right?
Curious, where is the m.2 slot on this board? I see the 3 screw holes near the bottom for the different lengths. Heatsink cover?
