About the ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Formula Motherboard
Effective cooling is extremely important, so the ROG Crosshair VIII Formula provides comprehensive cooling features that enable higher performance at lower temperatures.
CrossChill EK III
CrossChill EK III lets you cool with air and water. The redesigned cooling channels provide wider copper, delivering up to 29.3°C lower MOSFET temperatures on water, and the standard G1/4″ threaded fittings mean CrossChill EK III easily fits existing setups — so you can enjoy efficient, quiet cooling with the minimum effort.
ROG Crosshair VIII Formula comes equipped with an optimized power-design layout to handle the prodigious power of the latest AMD Ryzen processors without throttling.
Trend-setting Power Design
The monstrous compute power of multi-core processors necessitates a power circuit that rapidly responds to massive current swings. Featuring an array of 16 strategically paired power stages, the Crosshair VIII Formula’s VRM is geared for any workload and all operating conditions.
Conventional motherboard design practices place primary focus on component specs without implementing circuit topologies that provide optimal transient response. The ROG Crosshair VIII Formula bucks industry trends by utilizing teamed PowIRstages to double the burst current of each phase and rapidly respond to load changes.
ROG Crosshair VIII Formula offers advanced connectivity to ensure seamless gaming experiences.
With the latest ultrafast networking, including Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) and dual Ethernet with one 5G port, ROG Crosshair VIII Formula removes all bottlenecks for online and LAN play, minimising lag and providing an overall smoother experience.
Additionally, the M.2 supports AMD StoreMI technology to maximise the speed of your SSD for faster load times, and SupremeFX onboard audio provides superb sound while saving a PCIe slot.
DDR4 4800+ MHZ (O.C.)
Infused with proprietary memory trace layout tweaks that improve signal integrity and mitigate noise, Optimem III allows memory kits to run at lower latencies, reduced voltages, and at higher frequencies. Stack the ROG Crosshair VII Formula with your favourite modules and maximize Matisse throughput for applications that demand massive bandwidth, or balance infinity fabric and memory performance for a diverse range of workloads.
UNCOMPLICATED SYSTEM TUNING
ROG gives you powerful tools that make optimizing your system fast and easy. For those who relish fine-grained control, the UEFI BIOS has a wealth of advanced options organized into intuitive categories that provide the ability to tweak every aspect of your system.
ASUS Node Connector
ASUS Node is a proprietary bi-directional interface that allows ASUS motherboards to communicate with other system components, opening up a wealth of new options for system builders.
