Nordic Hardware has the scoop on the ASUS Maximus III Extreme, a new enthusiast motherboard that will be unveiled at DreamHack in Sweden on November 26th. One of the unique features of this LGA1156 motherboard is overclocking via Bluetooth, this enables you to overclock your rig via Bluetooth-enabled phones. A bit more helpful perhaps is the LN2 Mode Header jumper, this feature promises to optimize the board to perform under extreme LN2 cooling and reduced CPU coldbug issues.
Other features include five PCI Express x16 slots, USB 3.0, SATA 6Gbps and 10-channel HD audio.
ASUS has designed a whole new power supply for the board, no less than 11 digital PWM phases. According to the manufacturer, this solution combines the best from both worlds, the digital and the analog. ASUS has taken ROG Connect to the next level by enabling overclocking via Bluetooth, which means now all you need to overclock is a Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone. Perhaps all that userfriendly, but still pretty damn cool.
The motherboard also has a unique function with its LN2 Mode Header jumper that, when activated, optimize the performance of the board when cooled by liquid nitrogen. The jumper is said to trick the internal temperature diode of the CPU and reduce coldbug issues.
