Top-tier VRM design, Thunderbolt, 10G LAN, and even a massive monoblock—the ASUS ROG Maximus XIII Extreme Glacial leaves nothing in reserve. ASUS also includes everything but the kitchen sink in the box. This motherboard is the pinnacle of ASUS motherboard design, so let's see just how far it can go!

you still just smack a silly 8 Core in it that pulls 350W in Cinebench when overclocked.

exactly what i was going to say lol, you read my mind
this would be an amazing AM4 option that's worthy of something like a 5950X

I'm guessing that nobody in Taiwan bothered to look up the English definitions for the word "Glacial". I'm sure a large percentage of my fellow native English speakers also think "slow" when someone says "Glacial".

One already exists, but it was LE ###/999

that's an ASRock board and i know it exists i was talking about a similar one from Asus for AM4
or in other words an AM4 Glacier like this one would be an amazing pair for a 5950X on some super high end water cooled system.
