Packaging & First Look

In typical ROG fashion the Maximus IV Extreme is presented in a red box. This box opens out to reveal more details and technical specifications for those who want to absorb the full feature-set of this motherboard. Opening the box up, there are an abundance of accessories to take advantage of within the bundle. Inside we get the following items:

- Instructions manual
- Software CD
- Multi-GPU bridges (CrossfireX SLI and 3-Way SLI
- SATA 3 certified cable
- Stickers
- Thermal probes
- Bluetooth 2.1+EDR module
- Voltage reader
- I/O shield
- USB2.0 front panel bracket
- iROG cable

The box with typical ROG styling

Lots of items within the bundle

Inside the box there is another box holding the motherboard. This has a clear protective plastic cover to ensure the motherboard is kept in good condition throughout transit. The Maximus IV Extreme is certainly a good looking motherboard, there is no mistaking that this board is from the ROG family. Red and back features are present throughout, the heatsinks compared to previous ROG motherboards are perhaps a little less aggressive and oversized, suggesting that the chipset doesn’t demand them.
