Third Party Review

By Writer : Your One and Only, Amazing, Awesome Tech – Hardware Expert and Guru….. Mr. Efrain E. Silva! ( Woot Woot! )

If you want a mother board that is ready to jam out with Windows 11, only the best and latest, then you need to take this model for a spin…. it can be something you like. Now this blog will tell you some things for it, mainly discussing its features. So hang on and get ready to read your heart out!

Now first of all, it also comes with its own free month of Adobe Creative Cloud, which is a huge up – side to things as well…. especially if you like to do other things on the creative end, tech guru that I am sure you are, he he he heh. Just keep that in mind. You will want to also know, then, the fact that it’s also got a M.2 aluminum heat sink of its own, in addition to its very distinct, class A ROG Cooling Zone. Yes, I did say it’s the best of the best, for cooling.

You should also come to find that this item offers 14+2 IR3555 in terms of PowIRstages, meaning only the most potent, robust power you can ever come to get your hands on, for mother boards…. that alone says a whole lot, don’t you agree? Trust in the numbers…..

What else to say? Well, it uses but no less than 5 - Way Optimization, and this simply means that you can get only some of the finest in system – full tuning in addition to a great supply of automation. And not only that, but you can also, on the same note, rest assured…. in knowing that the profiles for both over – clocking and cooling ( as briefly touched upon in that 2nd paragraph, but not to the full extent that I would like to someday cover, he he he heh….. as I am a huge fan of cooling potential in units like these, believing in the need for it altogether ) are no less than properly custom – made. And they are designed for your rig, so keep that in mind. All specifications and modifications in regards to this have been properly looked at before – hand…. what a nice, genious group of designers, all in all, would you not say so yourself? What have they not thought of, at the day’s end? He heh…. they literally think of everything.

If you want great ethernet potential with it, as well, then do not worry or fuss about it…. just know that it has got it, too! And in gigabits as well ( in case you really like that Gigabit Ethernet ) …. and for that, we are looking at nothin less than 2.5 Gbps. Sick.

So why are you not picking up a bad – ass mother board like this one today? Has it not made the top of your Christmas list by now? If not, think about it!
