Extreme Power & Performance
The Intel Comet Lake processor features 10 cores and a peak single-core Turbo speed that exceeds 5.3 GHz right out of the box. To cope with this increased demand on the system, Maximus XII Formula takes advantage of its intelligent VRM design and uses quality components to ensure the best gaming and daily productive computing experience.
- Power solution
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.
