This motherboard supports the latest Intel Lynnfield processors in LGA1156 package, which as memory and PCI Express controller integrated to support 2-channel (4 DIMMs) DDR3 memory and 16 PCI Express 2.0 lanes, providing great graphics performance. Intel Lynnfield processor is one of the most powerful and energy efficient CPU in the world.

  • Chipset Features
    The Intel P55 Express Chipset is the latest one-chipset design to support the latest 1156 socket Intel Lynnfield processors. Intel P55 provides improved performance by utilizing serial point-to-point links, allowing increased bandwidth and stability.

  • PCIe 2.0
    Double Speed; Double Bandwidth; This motherboard supports the latest PCIe 2.0 devices for double speed and bandwidth which enhances system performance.

  • Multi-GPU Technology
    SLI/CrossFireX On-Demand. Why choose when you can have both?SLI or CrossFireX? Fret no longer because with the ROG Maximus III GENE, you'll be able to run both multi-GPU setups. The board features SLI/CrossFireX on Demand technology, supporting SLI or CrossFireX configuration. Whichever path you take, you can be assured of jaw-dropping graphics at a level previously unseen.

  • Memory Feature
    Dual-Channel, DDR3 2133(O.C.) MHz Support. The motherboard supports DDR3 memory that features data transfer rates of 2133(O.C.)/2000(O.C.)/1800(O.C.)/1600/1333/1066 MHz to meet the higher bandwidth requirements of the latest operation system, 3D graphics, multimedia, and Internet applications. The dual-channel DDR3 architecture double the bandwidth of your system memory to boost system performance.

  • ROG Connect
    Plug and Overclock - Tweak it the hardcore way! Monitor the status of your desktop PC and tweak its parameters in real-time via a notebookójust like a race car engineerówith ROG Connect. ROG Connect links your main system to a notebook through a USB cable, allowing you to view real-time POST code and hardware status readouts on your notebook, as well as make on-the-fly parameter adjustments at a purely hardware level.

  • MemPerfect
    Optimize your memory without lifting a finger! Why risk crippling your system with poorly tuned memory? Now, with ROG's exclusive MemPerfect optimizing your memory performance is a simple matter of selecting the frequency you desire, and letting MemPerfect do the rest! MemPerfect quickly checks your memory settings for errors and automatically fixes themóensuring system stability and maximum efficiency.

  • iROG
    Intelligent multiple control at hand. The iROG is a special IC which enables several ROG highlitghted functions that gives users full disposal of the motherboard at any stage! This design allows advanced user control and management to be processed purely at a hardware level. iROG greatly increases fun during overclocking for PC enthusiasts and it offers system maintainence and management with more control and efficiency.

  • MemOK!
    Any memory is A-OK! Memory compatibility is among the top concerns when it comes to computer upgrades. Worry no more, MemOK! is the fastest memory booting solution today. This remarkable memory rescue tool requires nothing but a push of a button to patch memory issues and get your system up and running in no time. The technology is able to determine failsafe settings that can dramatically improve system booting success.

  • ProbeIt
    Get all hands-on with hardware-based overclocking. ProbeIt takes the guesswork out of locating the motherboard's measurement points, identifying them clearly in the form of 5 sets of detection points so you'll know exactly where to get quick yet accurate readings using a multitester.

  • COP EX
    Maximum OC with confidence with burn proof protection to chipsets and CPU! The COP EX allows overclockers to increase chipset voltages without the worries of overheating. It can also be used to monitor and save an overheating CPU. The COP EX allows more freedom and less constraint for maximum performance achievement.

  • GameFirst
    The speed you need to pwn. Low Internet latency allows you to frag more, and get fragged less. That's why ROG has introduced GameFirst, a feature that manages the flow of traffic according to your needs so that you can still listen to online music, download and upload files, and engage in Internet chats without sacrificing the low ping times you need to pwn your opponents.

  • CPU Level Up
    A Simple click for instant upgrade. Ever wish that you could have a more expansive CPU? Upgrade your CPU at no additional cost with ROG's CPU Level Up! Simply pick the processor you wanted to OC to, and the motherboard will do the rest!.

    See the new CPU speed and enjoy that performance instantly. Overclocking is never as easy as this.

  • Extreme Tweaker
    One stop performance tuning shop. Extreme Tweakers is the one stop shop to fine-tune your system to optimal performance. No matter if you're looking for frequency adjustment, over-voltage options, or memory timing settings, they're all here!.

  • Voltiminder LED
    Friendly reminder on Voltage Settings. In the pursuit of extreme performance, overvoltage adjustment is critical but risky. Acting as the "red zone" of a tachometer, the Voltiminder LED displays the voltage status for CPU, PCH, and Memory in a intuitive colour-coded fashion. The voltiminder LED allows quick voltage monitoring for overclockers.

  • Loadline Calibration
    Optimal power boost for extreme CPU overclocking! Maintaining ample voltage support for the CPU is critical during overclocking. The Loadline Calibration ensures stable and optimal CPU voltage under heavy loading. It helps overclockers enjoy the motherboard's ultimate OC capabilities and benchmark scores.
