ASUS Z270 Maximus IX Extreme Preview



We've already seen how good the Maximus IX range has been so far, but what does the Extreme bring to the party?

Nice looking MB but the waterblock looks like an old cassette tape

lol Intel & AMD fan boys/girls will never ever get on so that bit make me laugh.

To anyone moaning about the pricing there's a reason why this cost more than a normal motherboard.....lol

After the show they did on the 1st im really not impressed by asus right now, they shouted about future products and they only stated intel and nvidia stuff. The fact they arnt doing this board for am4 is shocking.

I dont understand this mindset where companys think people who support amd are cheapskates. I would happily throw £500 at this mb for my ryzen build if not more. And the limited scope of the asus line up when you compare it to others is a bit lack luster.

Yes we can say the components are bulletproof, but the lack of more then 1 m.2 connector, the fact the crossy doesnt even come with the wifi connected onto it out of the box, the fact they are having the worst problems right now just via ram screams they simply dont care.

To me what they are doing right now is tokenism and for the first time in over a decade im actually thinking of not going asus. And its a shame because this extreme motherboard is a thing of beauty and for anyone who is thinking of watercooling this is the go to board.

Shame.

A £600 AM4 board wouldnt sell.

£250 is high enough in the grand scheme of things.

Im sure youll get something else AM4 wise but there is a limit and you have to think they know a bit more than you may, especially as I doubt youd buy a £600 Ryzen board even if they did make one...

I dont understand that, why would a £600 board for intel sell but one for amd wouldnt. And in essence your paying £250 for the mb and around £250 for the waterblock.

And people are willing to pay £300 for an am4 board right now without a waterblock and all the extras for watercooling. And if people are willing to pay over £600 for a gpu that gets swapped out every new iteration then why different for a top top TOP end motherboard.

If you were in a position where you are going out and out ryzen be it these 7's or the 5's if they turn out to overclock more or even the raven ridges and were going to watercool wouldnt you spend that much for a solid base.

And please i know your into watercooling, show me anywhere that you can get a monoblock of that quality with those features anywhere outside of this motherboard.

I couldn't agree with that more. People do not pay Intel prices for AMD gear.

AMD had a hard enough time trying to sell the Fury/Fury X for the prices they needed to charge. That's why there's still a whole heap of them floating around retailers/Amazon.

Your right they dont, because they do not have the option, and fury is a wierd cat as it is, its got hbm true but its kneecapped by the limited ammount. If its simply a fact that we have impossed a class system into hardware then be honest and just say it.

I mean damn i seriously should not have paid £500 for an amd cpu, what was i thinking, im just a poor boy.

You've only just realised that?

Ever since AMD and Cyrix made CPUs it's been a class system. Nvidia made it all about boasting/bragging and it's only gotten worse since. Intel were taken down a peg or two during the P4/Tbird days but at the end of the day they survived it well, even though their CPUs were poo. As soon as they released the P4 "extreme" edition it was all over. Welcome to a world where my epeen is bigger than yours.
