ASUS ROG MAXIMUS IX CODE: memory and graphics card

Memory DDR4 DIMM sockets four to provide up to 64GB capacity and can be expanded up to a frequency of 2,133 MHz officially up to 4,266 MHz through overclocking or from memory to support XMP. In addition to the built-in memory controller on the CPU additional VRM module viscosity so that one can take advantage of a more stable overclocking memory by assigning one of the main features of the ASUS ROG MAXIMUS IX CODE.

PCI-Express 3.0 slot configuration takes a configuration similar to the existing high-end motherboard. 2 x16 slots on the top(gray)makes it so as not to interfere with the cooling closer spacing distance between the graphics card is optimized for multi-GPU configurations, such as NVIDIA SLI and AMD CFX.

The first x16 slot, only need to use the whole advantage of the 16x and second x16 slot is divided into use with 8x respectively. It’s also noticeable that users who upgrade graphic card have durability around the metal frame to prevent damage to the PCI-Express slot. There is a black x16 slot at the bottom, but the actual operation is only supported up to 4x speed and shares bandwidth with the third x1 slot, so it basically works at 2x speed.

ASUS ROG MAXIMUS IX CODE: Storage and Network & audio

port for storage devices and six SATA3 ports M.2 socket that can be called standard (M key)are provided two. SATA3 port is disposed toward the side of the connectors to avoid interference with the graphic card, some ports(1, 5/6)will often share the bandwidth and M.2 socket.

M.2 socket mounting method is somewhat unusual. M.2 socket supporting 4x PCIe mode and SATA mode is in the removable cover of ROG RGB ARMOR, and 4x PCIe exclusive M.2 socket is inserted vertically. Way. In addition, SATA3_1 port is disabled when M.2 socket is used in simultaneous support SATA mode, and SATA3_5 / 6 port is disabled when 4x PCIe dedicated M.2 socket is used.
