EXPERTLY TOOLED. TOTALLY COOLED
CROSSCHILL EK II
CrossChill EK II cools with air or water! Reengineered larger cooling fins maximize heat dissipation, and lower flow-resistance means faster streams for up to 23˚C-lower MOSFET temperatures with water versus air. New, thinner fins offer 4˚C-cooling improvement over the previous design ─ so you’ll benefit from efficient, quiet cooling!
FULLY DOMINATE YOUR WATER-COOLING SYSTEM
ROG WATER COOLING ZONE
ROG’s innovative Water-Cooling Zone lets you monitor your cooling system like never before. ROG Water-Cooling Zone’s dual water-temperature headers and flow-rate header feed 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!
AURA LIGHTING CONTROL
Customize your own favorite LED effects with Aura, the intuitive lighting-control software, to cast a stunning multi-color glow across your build via the ROG Maximus IX Formula’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.
