ASUS takes its name from Pegasus, the winged horse in Greek mythology that symbolizes wisdom and knowledge. ASUS embodies the strength, purity, and adventurous spirit of this fantastic creature, and soars to new heights with each new product it creates.
If build bold, crave quiet and demand the coolest of the cool then Maximus VIII Formula is the only motherboard for you. With an all-new dedicated cooling block primed for your favorite liquid-cooling pipes, Maximus VIII Formula is the winning formula.
ROG teamed up with the cooling masters at EK Water Blocks to create CrossChill EK, an extreme-performance cooling block with a copper channel that's hungry for either air or liquid. CrossChill EK is the coolest choice for custom-chilled builds enabling quieter rigs that run great on air — and even better with water. With G1/4in threaded fittings CrossChill EK is a quick fit for your existing setup and, when you chill with liquid, you'll shrink MOSFET temperatures by up to 23C!
Build with Maximus VIII Formula and you'll build… BRIGHT! With a built-in Aura RGB-strip header and easy lighting controls, it's never been easier to light up your rig — and your LAN parties!
We use high-precision laser-engraving technology to carve beautifully intricate patterns across the ROG Armor that enrobes Maximus VIII Formula, allowing the radiant RGB light of 28 integrated LEDs to shine through and illuminate key parts of the board — including the MOSFET heatsink cover, PCIe area and the striking ROG logo on the PCH cover! Forget the faff of external RGB controllers! With ROG's Aura RGB Strip header, it's quick and easy to cast brilliant colors across your rig and room: Just slide standard 12V RGB strips onto the 4-pin Aura RGB-strip header, then weave your lighting any way you like. Customize static, strobing and pulsating effects, or have the colors change in time with music or indicate CPU temperature.
