Maximus X Extreme?

Simple question, will we see a Maximus X Extreme?
About to pull the trigger on a whole new setup, 1080Ti Poseidon, 8700K etc etc and I would love to have a motherboard like the Extreme for the Z270 with a sweet monoblock

Well I finally pulled the trigger and got my X370 build underway

Maximus X Formula
Binned 8700k and delidded by 8pack
8pack team group ram 16gb 3600
960 pro m.2 512gb
Xres and ek rad.
Bitspower compression fittings.
Primochill advanced lrt 13 19 tubing
Enthoo Luxe tg.

I had to cut the enthoo luxe up a bit with the dremmel to allow me to reposition the side panel which mounts the ssds. This allowed me to fit the Xres at the front without it being hidden.

The compression fittings were hard to fit. That advanced lrt tubing is proper hard to get on. Trick is to use a hair dryer to soften them up a bit before doing them up

It's not finished yet still waiting on a few bits

Was gonna get a block on the 1080ti but going to add that in later on.

It's going to be nice not having the noise of the chiller when I use it now!����

Hey alyraver!

Nice looking build! Very neat and tidy.
:cool:

I tried to RAID 0 two 32GB modules with my R5E10 X99 with the onboard M.2 slot and a separate riser card in PCIe slot 4 and the bios would only recognize one of the Optane modules. Maybe there is a workaround I'm unaware of.


This is an either or choice on RVE10 either M2 or fourth slot not both at the same time.

Cheers Arne 😄

It's been a while since I've done any real overclocking. Looking forward to seeing what this new platform can do compared to my old x79 rig!

I'm willing to bet ASUS didn't release a Maximus X Extreme yet because they're saving it for the Z390 chipset, which might come sooner than everyone thinks due to Ryzen 2.

Fingers crossed you've a good CPU in there...though if it's an 8Pack binned CPU it should be good for warp speed! X79 was pretty darn good but I'm guessing things have moved on..

Let us know how you go.
