It starts with a robust 20+2 teamed power phase design rated for 110A, with micro-fine alloy chokes, premium 10K black metallic capacitors, and ProCool II power connectors. The general takeaway from all that is it delivers “copious amounts of stable power to your CPU” and should remain stable to facilitate aggressive overclocking.
The flagship board is also big on cooling.
“Today’s processors take advantage of available power and thermal headroom to offer you the best performance at any moment, so cooling isn’t just a matter of comfort—comprehensive cooling makes sure that you get the sustained performance that you demand,” ASUS explains.
“The ROG Crosshair X670E Extreme gives you a full suite of options for setting up your dream cooling solution. Six headers for chassis and radiator fans let you establish and control system airflow. Planning to deploy a custom liquid-cooling solution? A wealth of headers for pumps and flow rates give you total command over the coolant coursing through your build,” ASUS adds.
Familiar features such as the company's Q-Design, including a PCIe Q-Release button and Q-DIMM latching system, are part of the package. ASUS says it also simplified the installation of M.2 drives with an M.2 Q-Latch so you don't have to fuss with a tiny screw.
