You'd never win with your eyes closed, so open your ears up to the best audio for the battlefield! ROG's awesome audio expertise is the result of extensive R&D, and SupremeFX 2015 is the crystal-clear result - onboard sound as superior as your gaming rep. Greater performance means smoother gameplay - and that means more chance to win. With the best overclocking (OC) design, UEFI BIOS and intuitive OC gadget and utility, you'll enjoy unmatched performance - coupled with an exclusive cooling design ensures your system never breaks a sweat. Get your hands on OC Panel II, an intuitive system monitoring and tweaking in two modes. For both, a clear 2.6-inch display keeps you informed and in full control - so you can maximize the available power. OC Panel II also comes with the illuminated LED on the stunning ROG logo. OC Panel II can also be used as external overclocking console, giving easy access to multiple ROG-exclusive features including Subzero Sense, VGA Hotwire, Slow Mode and Pause Switch. You also have direct access to two PWM and two full-speed fan headers, as well as remote power and reset buttons. Thought you'd taken overclocking as far as it could go? Meet ASUS Pro Clock, a dedicated base-clock (BCLK) generator designed for 6th-generation Intel processors that ramps BCLK frequencies up to 400MHz or even beyond . This custom solution works in tandem with the ASUS TurboV Processing Unit (TPU) to enhance voltage and base-clock overclocking control - providing an exciting another way to boost performance to extremes.

Second-generation ASUS T-Topology pushes DDR4 memory overclocking to over 3866MHz with all memory slots populated - and that means the best-ever gaming performance from your Maximus VIII Extreme rig! Featuring a customized trace layout for reduced crosstalk and coupling noise, second-generation T-Topology ensures time-aligned signal transfer for improved memory stability and compatibility. The smoothest, slickest mouse-controlled graphical BIOS has been improved to make it even more gorgeous. Whether you're a PC novice or a seasoned overclocker, the EZ and Advanced Modes help you find your way, quickly and easily. ROG's uniquely-intelligent technology effectively caches an entire storage device so that favorite games and apps launch at breakneck speeds, getting to work the moment it's activated. RAMCache turns milliseconds into microseconds to boost game-load times to stratospheric levels, and minimizes risk of data loss! As a gamer you demand stability and durability, so ROG integrates long-lasting, premium components, plus exclusive smart DIY designs across the board - ensuring the best gaming experiences.
