ASUS RoG Maximus III Extreme Preview Comment Thread
 
ASUS has long been known for their Republic of Gamers series of motherboards and while they have products already in place for both of Intel’s P55 and X58 platforms, they felt it was time to take things to the next level. The Maximus III Extreme follows closely in the footsteps of the original Maximus III Formula but adds a bevy of new features that are sure to make enthusiasts go weak in the knees.

Also, stay tuned to our forums as over the next few weeks we will be allowing the Hardware Canucks community to participate in a “community overclocking project” centered on the MIIIE.
Really now?

With Digi+ ASUS is able to offer selectable frequencies ranging from a mere 250Hz all the way up to 1Mhz within the BIOS.
They actually allow you to manually select the MOSFET driving frequency? Interesting. I would think that you'd want to keep it as high as possible to minimize impedance from the capacitors, but I wonder if there are actually different frequency ranges that are better for overclocking with this particular board.

How the hell does "community overclocking" work?

Love the Bluetooth feature tho :)

Removed. Sorry, just got word from ASUS that the second board we were supposed to get can't be shipped but rather has to go towards retail stock. :sad:

The original idea was to post a forum thread which would be updated on a daily basis where the community could give tips for pushing the board to its air-cooling limits. The thread would then turn into an interesting little "how to" guide for people looking to overclock P55 boards.

Yeah, they do. 250Hz increments.

Up to 40 Amperes available for the CPU... Wow.

Sure is a handsome bugger.
