Features & Specifications
Building on over a decade of ROG engineering and refinement, Formula is the motherboard that lets you push the boundaries while keeping the thermals in check and under careful control.
EXPERTLY TOOLED, TOTALLY COOLED - CROSSCHILL EK III
CrossChill EK III lets you cool with air and water. The redesigned cooling channels provide wider copper, delivering up to 37.2°C-lower MOSFET temperatures on water, and the standard G1/4" threaded fittings mean CrossChill EK III easily fits existing setups — so you can enjoy efficient, quiet cooling with the minimum effort.
COOLER BY DESIGN - COMPREHENSIVE COOLING ZONE
ROG Maximus XI Formula features the most comprehensive cooling controls ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS.
CONTROL YOUR RIG
Fast, intuitive control is vital for effective command of your rig, so we've loaded ROG Maximus XI Formula with simple, flexible tools that let you tweak almost every system aspect. Enjoy intelligent automated tuning with 5-Way Optimization technology, or dive deep into the revered ROG UEFI BIOS to take full manual control. The formula also makes short work of fine-tuning everything from sonics to storage, so it's easy to get every part of your system up to speed.
ASUS AI Overclocking makes automatic tuning faster and smarter than ever before. Available in Windows or directly through the UEFI, it profiles the CPU and cooling to predict the optimal configuration for each individual system.
ROG's SupremeFX audio technology has leveled up, delivering an exceptional 113dB signal-to-noise ratio on the line-in connection to provide best-ever recording quality. We've also added a low-dropout regulator for cleaner power delivery to the SupremeFX S1220 codec, an ESS® ES9023P digital-to-analog converter for superior front-panel output, and a Texas Instruments® RC4580 op-amp for high gain with low distortion — all to deliver audio that envelops you as never before.
The brand-new Armoury Crate portal keeps you updated with the latest drivers and BIOS releases. Its easy-to-use UI can be configured to show a variety of information, including security updates, bug patches, the latest ROG news, gaming events, and special offers.
PERSONALIZED FOR YOU
With Aura Sync to unleash synchronized illumination effects that extend from motherboard to a vast ecosystem of compatible components, and the LiveDash OLED panel to display system stats and custom visuals, ROG Maximus XI Formula is primed for endless personalization.
Maximus XI Formula is equipped with LiveDash, a built-in 2" OLED panel that displays useful information and customizable graphics. During the power-on, self-test (POST) phase, LiveDash shows key progress stats in simple language and via traditional POST codes. Then, during normal operation, the panel shows a choice of CPU frequency, device temperatures, fan speeds or information from the Water Cooling Zone. You're even able to customize the default LiveDash GIF so that it'll display your own image or animation.
