Asus Maximus IX Extreme review – 5-way Extremization

Among many gaming and overclocking boards, Asus always has time to do something new, something interesting, something original. This time they launched Maximus IX Extreme later than other boards in the series and that was for a good reason. They bundled it with a liquid cooling monoblock that covers the CPU and VRM, offering great new features. And the surprise is… it’s not made by EK. It is made by Bitspower, making the test even more interesting.
