Further, the combination of an integrated liquid cooling system, hardware, and software features enables the end-user to get maximum performance from Intel’s next-gen 11th generation core processor.

Active cooling facility to the VRM ensures ultimate stability during sustained heavy multi-threaded workloads when overclocking.

Is liquid cooling technology, one of the first in industry from Asus?

Well, there can be a debate on this. Even if it’s not the first in the industry, but the very first from Asus while partnered with EKWB. The monoblock-designed motherboard is an engineered EK cooling system that provides cooling to the power delivery system, CPU, and chipset of course. It derives the liquid cooling solution from its elder sibling the ROG Maximus Extreme Glacial.

The integrated water block helps stabilize the performance and maintains the heat as well temperature across the motherboard components and help function properly. The embedded water block can also be filled manually by the end-users, you don’t need to take it to a service center, that’s the beauty and ease you get with ROG Maximus     Glacial.
The cooling system in ROG Maximus     has leak detection sensors on the connection ports and an inbuilt OLED screen to display the key factors and parameters. It also offers an integrated temperature sensor and a sensor for highlighting real-time data and key measurements of coolant flow.
