Packaging & Unboxing
The Maximus XI Formula comes in the typical ROG black packaging with the model across the front in the metallic color-changing font with the ROG eye logo in the top right corner.
The rear of the box is in full color and shows the motherboard right in the center with some quick specs flanking it and a few of the main features along the top.
The two sides of the box have the model name in the same iridescent font as the front. The top is bright red with the ROG eye only.
Opening the box up we are greeted with the ROG eye and ‘welcome to the republic’ like most of the other ROG boards.
Inside, the Formula board sits under a clear cover in its own tray.
Under the motherboard tray, there is a sticker sheet laying on top of the tray cover with lots of ROG swag.
Under the top tray and the sticker sheet all of the inclusions and goodies in 3 compartments.
Like most ROG boards, the inclusion list is quite substantial. The usual driver disk, manual and SATA cables are here including some nice sleeved ones, as well as an SLI HB Bridge and a coaster. There are a few RGB cables, a USB 3.0 to 2.0 header adapter, ASUS’s Q-connector for your front cables, and the WiFi antenna. ASUS has also partnered with CableMod to offer a 20% coupon good for a slick set of cables or extensions customized to your particular power supply and tastes.
