    Default Maximus III Extreme Club

    ASUS Maximus III Extreme owners, this is the place to discuss, ask questions, and show all things MIIIE, an outstanding P55 LGA1156 motherboard. A Republic of Gamer board dedicated to those who want to extract the most out of their system, this board is a monster in terms of features and ability.

    Share your experiences, overclocking results, tips and tricks, and so forth. At this point in time, the board is now just released, so things will progress and improve, such as BIOS, performance results, and such.

    For now, I'll get the party started.........

    Here is our full review on the MIIIE:
    http://www.pureoverclock.com/review.php?id=942


    The following is a synopsis that covers the highlights of the major features of signficance:


    -Q Button. To the left of the CPU area is the "Q Button" button that is designed to help recover/reboot during liquid nitrogen overclocking session and extremely cold temperatures should you run into boot problems with a cold bug.



    -CPU Molex. Located just adjacent to this is a Molex connector that provides additional power to the CPU during extreme overclocking situations when voltages are very high and temperatures are very low. You really only need to use this when you're working with sub-ambient extreme cooling such as liquid nitrogen/helium, and perhaps dry ice or phase change.

    -ProbeIt. An enthusiast-oriented feature that allows you to measure critical real-time voltage readings for CPU PLL, PCH, DRAM, IMC, and CPU with a multimeter while overclocking.

    -Go Button. Handy if you're having boot problems, from a failed overclock or otherwise. If you press it while powered down, it will reset your memory to a stable state. However, the Go Button also works if you press it while in the Windows environment, it will instead overclock your system according to a profile that you can preset in the BIOS.

    -Five PCI-E Slots. Supports CrossfireX and SLI configurations with five PCI-E x16 arranged either in a single x16, dual at x16, triple at x16/x16/x8, quad x8, or 5 at x8. Monster Folding@Home rig anyone?

    -GPU Molex. There is a Molex connector located at the bottom of the expansion slots, which ASUS calls an EZ Plug, to provide supplementary power if you heavily load the slots in an extreme setup

    -PLX Chip. A PLX PEX8608 PCI Express chip is installed which essentially boosts the bandwidth and prevents a performance drop when operating more than one graphics card, SATA III 6Gb/s, and USB 3.0 devices simultaneously.

    -BIOS VID vs Offset. An option to set the voltage as VID or Offset. The Offset option allows you to apply a percentage offset of the voltage, which will dynamically move up and down according to the Speed Stepping and CState. This allows for more efficient power usage in addition to lower temperatures. This Offset method is recommended for stock speeds and moderate overclocks. The VID Option is an absolute voltage setting, static and unchanging; what you set is what you get. This VID method (in conjunction with VDroop) is recommended for aggressive overclocking.



    -RC Bluetooth. Essentially a Pocket PC application for motherboard BIOS controls. Yes, you can wirelessly control your settings now through your smartphone's bluetooth connection. Further, system monitoring is also offered, along with post code readout and power on/off/reset functions. Bluetooth is currently supported in Android 2.0 and Windows Mobile 6.1 or 6.5. Support for further ones has been promised.

    -ROG Connect. Allows you to externally connect a separate computer to the Extreme system and then tweak and monitor settings on-the-fly. RC TweakIt is the interface to do this.



    -BIOS Flashback. The MIIIE is currently the only motherboard on the market to allow for USB-based flash drive BIOS flashing even without the CPU, VGA, or memory present. That means you can essentially flash an empty board. All you need is standby power, then plug the USB flash drive into the ROG Connect port on the rear of the board, press and hold the ROG Connect button for 3 seconds, and Flashback does its thing. Very nice.


    Overclocking is fun. If you're a novice, check these forums for advice and help. If you're a veteran, the MIIIE is your new best LGA1156 friend. I dropped the MIIIE on DICE and an i7 870 and posted a Top 3 and Top 5 worldwide 3DMark result for the 870 CPU class. Not too shabby. This board is killer for sub-zero benching.





    Bottom line: this board isn't cheap, but it is probably the best LGA1156 board you'll ever own.
