Featuring
a CPU socket powered by an 11-phase digital PWM circuit (using SuperML
capacitor) and four DDR3 DIMM slots powered by a 3-phase circuit, the
board also has an extra 6-pin connector on-board.

Apart from the myriad
of overclocking features seen on ROG series of motherboards, the
Maximus III Extreme also incorporates ROG Connect, a function which
allows users to control overclocking using Bluetooth-enabled mobile
phones. Another new feature is its “LN2 Mode Header jumper
that, when activated, optimize the performance of the board when cooled
by liquid nitrogen. The jumper is said to trick the internal
temperature diode of the CPU and reduce coldbug issues”.

Bells and
whistles aside, the Maximus III Extreme has five PCI Express x16 slots,
SATA 6Gb/s, USB 3.0, firewire, gigabit ethernet and 10 channel HD audio
processor. Price and availability has not been announced yet so stay
