Phanteks Dominate The ROG Dominus Xtreme
Peter Donnell / 4 years ago
Remember that stupidly extreme ultra-high-end ROG DOMINUS EXTREME motherboard from ASUS? It’s an absolute monster of a motherboard. It comes with support for the equally extreme LGA3647 socket CPUs from Intel. With that comes some serious heat too. The VRM span the entire top row of the board, and to get the most out of the CPU, you’ll want to keep them cool.
This new complete solution from Phanteks coolers the entire VRM on the board. Obviously, that’s superb. However, you can also get their new waterblock and distribution/pump block which mounts on the rear of the radiator (see below). It’s all aRGB lit too, not that it needs to be, but it’s nice to have options, right?
The weight of the motherboard is vast, plus the weight of this VRM block makes it by far the heaviest mobo/block combo on the market today. Be sure to install in a chassis with a strong backplate, or it’ll crumple like a crisp packet.
The CPU block is pretty heavy duty too, but given the size of the CPU, that’s no surprise. Prices? A lot, release date? Soon, mass market appeal? Minimal, Awesome? Absolutely.
