The P55 based one

The guys from NordicHardware.com managed to score some pictures of yet another Asus Republic of Gamers motherboard, the Maximus III Extreme. This one is based on Intel's P55 chipset and bunch of goodies that can be found exclusively on ROG labled motherboards.

The motherboard features support for LGA 1156 processors and has a 11-phase digital PWM. The rest of the features include five PCI-Express x16 slots, provided probably by few PCI-Express bridge chips located below the heatsink, four DDR3 slots, two SATA 6.0Gbps and seven SATA 3.0Gbps ports, two USB 3.0 ports, single eSATA port, Gigabit Ethernet and integrated audio, which surprised us as Asus usually uses dedicated card on its high-end motherboards.

The one feature that caught our eye, and which should certainly be welcomed by overclockers is the LN2 Mode jumper which enhances performance when this motherboard is paired up with LN2 for cooling. It also has on board Power, Reset and Clear CMOS buttons as well as the support for Bluetooth overclocking via mobile phone, something that we have yet to see.

The exact price and the availability date haven't been disclosed but we guess that you can expect a high price tag, as after all, this is a Republic of Gamers motherboard. You can check out more here.
