    Extreme Performance!

    Delivering some of our best ever benchmarks, this motherboard is no slouch. If you’re looking to push the most from your new TR4 CPU, it’ll deliver the performance you desire. The overclocking features are extensive for the professional user. However, a single button press will net you a fully optimised and overclocked system in minutes too, making it beginner friendly. Not that I expect a beginner to buy something like this, but they could.

    Peace of mind comes from that huge power delivery system, and the fan built into the rear I/O to ensure the motherboard doesn’t throttle the CP. As well as massive heat sinks on the chipset, and armor on the PCIe slots, and… I think you get the idea, it’s pretty much starting to sound like hyperbole now.
    Gaming, Streaming, and Beyond!

    As one of the more expensive X399 motherboards on the market, justifying this for a standard gaming rig would be bonkers. However, if you’re a content creator that games, streams, and produces content in 4K, it’s perfect for you. The 10 GbE hardware, the fast M.2 storage, and Threadripper give you the chops of a mighty workstation, with the power of a high-end gaming system mixed in. It’s not for everyone, but I’m sure there are enough people out there already typing in their bank details to order one.
    Pros

    RoG M.2
    LiveDash OLED
    Excellent overclocking options
    Active cooled VRM
    10 GbE card included
    Huge amount of storage options
    On board power controls
    Fan hub, M.2 mount, PCIe Bridges and more included
    Incredible performance
    Stylish design
    Full RGB lighting with expansion support
    Durable build quality

    Neutral

    VMR fan on motherboard is a little noisy, but it does help keep important hardware cool
    It’s very expensive, but keep in mind the added value from everything else included in the box

    Cons

    None

    “ASUS RoG decided to go big rather than go home. The Zenith E-ATX X399 motherboard has so many features, they couldn’t fit them onto the motherboard. It may be one of the more expensive, but it justifies the price with excellent performance, amazing extras like a 10GbE card, DIMM.2, and so much more. Enthusiasts and content creators are going to love this motherboard.”

    The conclusion

    In short, I think the X399 ROG Zenith Extreme is totally amazing. But I do not have any basis for comparison from other X399 boards just yet. ASUS went crazy and dropped everything they could on the PCB. And that means the fastest storage solutions in multitudes, crazy network configurations with the absolute fastest Wifi and even 1/5/10 Gbps Ethernet (yay!). And then there is the massive amount of connectivity available on your PCIe slots. Tweaking wise the sky is the limit, well let me rephrase that .. the processor is the limit 🙂 The board can go way higher and will facilitate anything the Threadripper processors can do with up-to 3600 MHz clocked on that quad-channel memory as well. We like the small OLED status LCD and we really like that subtle RGB implementation (AURA SYNC) and on and on and on. The noisy little cover fan needs some tweaking (we do hope that ASUS will fix that noise with a BIOS update). If not, I explained you how you can fix that yourself in a few seconds. Now there is one thing we need to discuss, it will be the biggest conundrum of this motherboard. The price of this luxurious beast is a bit nauseating 499 USD, and here in the EU you may expect it tagged at € 599,- depending on your country. Hey, that 10 Gbps Ethernet card alone is worth 150 bucks not to mention the WIFI AC/AD implementation. But sure, I have a hard time justifying such an amount of money of course, so I’ll just leave the final judgment on that to you guys as you are the ones that decide whether or not you are willing to drop that much cash on a motherboard. And sure, there will be plenty X399 motherboards to choose from in all kinds of ranges and lines. This simply happens to be the most extreme SKU in the most enthusiast segmented levels. Now I can make the conclusion a mile long, but when I am impressed, then I am just that. You’ve seen the options, the aesthetics and you have seen what it can do. The X399 Zenith Extreme is a child of love and belong in the absolute highest rankings of your short-list (if you are going for that X399 / Threadripper platform). I’ll give it our hard to earn Top Pick award, not based on price though. No purely based on the hardware, looks, tweaking experience and tremendous amount of high-end features. It has been a pleasure working on this platform from day one, but we also have to acknowledge that it is completely out of reach for many at this price level.
