Product Information

PLUMBED TO PERFECTION

Introducing the ROG Maximus XII Formula, This sublime motherboard has been designed to explore the upper echelons of gaming and overclocking. The Formula is plumbed for custom liquid cooling and includes other enhancements to punctuate premium systems. The CrossChill EK III VRM block, co-developed with EK Water Blocks, help cope with higher VRM loads associated with Intel Comet Lake CPUs. Aesthetically, Maximus XII Formula has a stealthy black finish with intricate patterns cut into its reflective armor. The latest-generation Formula is all set to make your showcase rig shine.

POWER DELIVERY ENHANCEMENTS

Modern CPU architectures up the ante for motherboard power design by transitioning from deep power saving modes to full load almost instantaneously. Our latest VRM architecture rises to the challenge by utilizing teamed power stages to rapidly swing current, while maintaining exemplary thermal performance.

8-PIN PROCOOL II POWER CONNECTOR

Ensures a snug and reliable connection to the EPS 12V power lines.

70A
POWER STAGE

The VRM has 16 power stages, each rated to handle 70 amps

MICROFINE
ALLOY CHOKES

Each Power stage is accompanied by a high-permeability alloy-core choke rated to handle 45 amps.

10K BLACK
METALLIC CAPACITORS

Input and output filtering is provided by solid-polymer capacitors rated to last thousands of hours at high operating temperatures.

COMPREHENSIVE COOLING ZONE

Enjoy comprehensive control over fans and water pumps, via either Fan Expert 4 or our UEFI. Whether you’re cooling with air or water, Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. There’s also an Extreme Quiet mode, which reduces all fan speeds to below the default minimum — keeping your system whisper-quiet when performing light tasks.

MULTIPLE TEMPERATURE SOURCES

Each header can be set to monitor and react to three user-configurable thermal sensors for workload-based cooling. And all settings can be easily managed by Fan Xpert 4 or UEFI.

UPGRADED VRM WATERBLOCK

CrossChill EK III lets you cool with air and water. The redesigned copper cooling channel is wider to provide up to 37.2°C-lower MOSFET temperatures on water, while the standard G1/4″ threaded fittings allow it to fit existing setups for efficient, quiet cooling with minimum effort.

PERFECT FOR WATER-COOLING ENTHUSIASTS

The focus on maximizing performance would be futile without similar dedication to improving the cooling that allows systems to sustain faster speeds. The CrossChill EK III VRM block enables Maximus XII Formula to cope with the high VRM loads of ten core CPUs. The hybrid cooling system sits atop of a heatpipe that’s directly linked to the extended VRM heatsink, giving it cooling capabilities that surpass the requirements of this current generation.

OPTIMEM III

Boasting proprietary memory trace layout tweaks that improve signal integrity and mitigate noise, ASUS OptiMem III is more compatible with 3600 MHz+ memory kits, allowing them to run at higher frequencies. You can opt to optimise memory for high frequency settings, or low latency settings. With higher capacity memory kits, OptiMem III enables you to run at maximum frequency, whereas other motherboards will trade off frequency for capacity. Stack Maximus XII Formula with your favorite modules and maximize throughput of the new 10th Generation Intel® Core™ Comet Lake-S processor for applications that demand massive bandwidth.

MAXIMUS COMPATIBILITY

Three M.2 slots are wired directly to the PCH. One slot supports both SATA and PCIe 3.0 x4 modes, while the other two supports PCIe 3.0 x4 for NVMe. Additional Intel® Optane™ memory recognizes, remembers, and speeds up access to most frequently used files, applications, and games for faster, more responsive performance.
