    ASUS announced that the Intel Z87-based Republic of Gamers Maximus VI Extreme motherboard has achieved a decisive 91% success rate at a Computex Taipei 2013 overclocking summit sponsored by Intel and Corsair. Additionally, the board tallied eight world performance records at a separate gathering that took place at ASUS headquarters, all mere days after its official launch.

    Ten out of eleven wins at the Intel and Corsair Computex OC Main Event

    Eight world records accomplished
    As further demonstration of ASUS and Republic of Gamers (ROG) dedication to delivering the most overclock-friendly boards on the market, Maximus VI Extreme has already played host to the fastest 4th generation Intel Core i7 processor, running at close to 7.1GHz, done by overclocker Mad222. The board has also recorded four DDR3 DIMMs clocked at an impressive 3957MHz, the fastest four-DIMM DDR3 on any Z87-based motherboard at the time.

    An additional six new world records were attained, including PiFast, SuperPi 32M, 3DMark01, 3DMark05, 3DMark06, and AquaMark3. Celebrity overclockers invited to ASUS headquarters worked with renowned overclockers and ROG team members Andre Yang, Shamino, and TL on establishing these new records. Guests included Christian Ney, Fredyama, Hazzan, Slamms, Smoke, Sofos1990, and Youngpro. The event took place 10-13 June, following the conclusion of Computex Taipei 2013.

    when are they going to fix the cpu default title to match the overclock you have, it should say i7-4770K 3.5GHz not @ 3.5GHz since it clearly isn't... or atleast show it as @ 7.0 GHz

    I can confirm that the board is capable. It is simply that retail CPUs that go into the board are not. Or so the story goes...I know there are real differences between ES and retail, but what that is I don't care to discuss. Those with ES chips or Intel themselves need to disclose that, not me. I don't have an ES chip(but I did;)).

    This bloody Haswell larky. Oh well I suppose there is no point crying over spilt milk or over something we can do nothing about. Maybe the 4771k or what ever it is going to be called will be better when it's released next year. It's good to hear the board is good. Maybe I will delid my chip and get a good EK system to make the most of it. Or maybe I'll just be sensible and get some better ram to take advantage of the boards performance in that area.

    Prolly your best bet TBH ;) I wasn't trying to say that the board was/is incapable, just pointing out that there are always other options for those so inclined... Might even save a few $$$ in the process. The Asus team is just doing their thing, trying to sell boards ;)

    Pretty sure Dave can confirm that clocking Haswell is quite similar across all MFGs

    Indeed I agree. :toast:

    This is four-DIMM, that was single channel.

    that text is read off the cpu or mobo or wherever it's read from, it's the same text seen in the system properties of windows

    'this model is X ghz' that's all it is

    The main reason I went with Gigabyte Z87-OC Force over this was the voltage read points. I have no idea why Asus stopped using the plugin-style points that let you use multiple multimeters hands-free.

    I really like the OC force but I don't think it will fit in my case.
