Optimal Cooling

PERFECTED COOLING FOR UNLEASHING PERFORMANCE

PCH M.2 HEATSINK

ROG Crosshair VI Extreme is equipped with an M.2 heatsink integrated into the PCH heatsink. With its huge cooling surface, the M.2 heatsink perfectly chills an inserted M.2 SSD — providing maximum performance and reliability. 
Featuring a stylish angular design replete with an awesome glowing ROG eye logo, the M.2 heatsink adds a beautiful touch to the build, while the T-sensor detects temperatures in the vital M.2 area for instant monitoring.

FULLY DOMINATE YOUR WATER-COOLING SYSTEM

WATER COOLING ZONE

ROG's innovative Water Cooling Zone lets you monitor your cooling system like never before. The dual water-temperature headers and flow-rate header of the ROG Water Cooling Zone feeds information straight into ROG's intuitive Fan Xpert 4 utility - so you can stay on top of the heat and stay cool in every game!

EXTENDED COMPATIBILITY

READY FOR ANY AM4 OR AM3 COOLER

ROG Crosshair VI Extreme has special mounting holes that are compatible with any AM4 or AM3 cooler/LN2 pot. Upgrade to a new AM4 cooler, or extend the life of your existing AM3 kit — the choice is yours!

Best Gaming Lighting

AURA LIGHTING CONTROL

Customize your own favorite LED effects with intuitive, ASUS-exclusive lighting-control software. Aura RGB technology makes it possible to cast a stunning multicolor glow across your entire build, via the ROG Crosshair VI Extreme's brilliant built-in RGB LEDs or attached RGB strips via the two onboard 4-pin headers - all lights will perform in perfect synchronization! Fire up Aura and enjoy the creative freedom of nine different lighting schemes!

* The Aura RGB-strip header supports standard 5050 RGB LED strips with a maximum power rating of 3A (12V). For maximum brightness, strip length should not exceed 2m. 
* One extension cable is included; RGB LED strips sold separately.

RGB LIGHTING PERFECTED

ROG Crosshair VI Extreme includes a dedicated addressable RGB header* that connects to compatible lighting strips, fans, coolers, and compatible PC cases — all to create a new world of illumination possibilities. Aura software offers an array of effects for addressable gear, and the Aura SDK takes things to the next level — allowing developers to control each LED individually, unleashing infinite lighting possibilities!

* Addressable RGB header supports strips with a maximum power rating of 3A (5V). For maximum brightness, strips should contain no more than 120 LEDs.

AURA SDK

INFINITE LIGHTING POSSIBILITIES

Aura SDK* is an evolving developer toolkit that ASUS has made available in order to advance the capabilities and benefits of our Aura illumination technology. Aura SDK enables enthusiasts and developers by providing a platform for discussing, exploring and exploiting the vast eco-system of ASUS Aura Sync-capable gear. Developers can share ideas for customizing the display of various system stats and alerts via RGB illumination, and also explore ways to brilliantly portray in-game action with real-time synchronized lighting.

OUTSHINE THE COMPETITION

ASUS Aura Sync technology makes ROG Crosshair VI Extreme the control hub for your illumination ambitions — so it's easy to synchronize incredible lighting effects between compatible components, including RGB LED strips, graphics cards, keyboards and even mice! Change all LEDs in unison or employ dynamic modes to flow illumination effects smoothly across all synchronized devices.

Best Gaming Audio

EXQUISITE AUDIO, INSIDE AND OUT

NEW SUPREMEFX CODEC

ROG SupremeFX audio technology has levelled up with ROG Crosshair VI Extreme, delivering an exceptional 113dB signal-to-noise ratio on the line-in connection for best-ever recording quality — and 120dB on line-out for crystal-clear sound. We've also added a low-dropout regulator for cleaner power delivery to the SupremeFX S1220 codec, plus Texas Instruments® RC4580 and OPA1688 op-amps for high gain with low distortion. It all adds up to audio that envelops you as never before!

INTUITIVE AUDIO-TUNING SUITE

SONIC STUDIO III

Sonic Studio III now supports HRTF-based (head-related transfer function*) virtual surround for VR headsets, casting an immersive aural landscape that draws you deeper into the action. The Sonic Studio GUI also offers a range of EQ options, allowing you to tailor acoustics to suit personal preferences or the characteristics of your headset.

* A head-related transfer function is an audio algorithm derived from sound data recorded through a dummy head. Test tones are played from a spherical grid around the dummy head to obtain subtle changes in sounds that arrive from different directions. The results are combined into an algorithm that allows Sonic Studio's virtual surround to process sound true to life.
** Please note HRTF function is available only in version 3.6 and later.

Best Gaming Connectivity

UNLEASH 32GBPS SSD SPEEDS

DUAL M.2

ROG Crosshair VI Extreme offers dual PCIe 3.0 x4 M.2 slots that provide NVMe SSD RAID support for an incredible performance boost.
