MSI had its turn just before with their new Z390 motherboards led by the flagship MEG Z390 GODLIKE motherboard, but now it's time for ASUS to shine in the light with their Z390 motherboards and the flagship Z390 ROG Maximus XI.
The new ASUS Z390 ROG Maximus XI CODE motherboard with an absolutely huge heat sink that spreads from the first to second x16 PCIe port and over the Z390 chipset, edging to the 4 x DDR4 DIMM slots. It looks glorious as well, with some awesome RGB-lit start/reset buttons next the DIMMs. It requires an 8+6-pin power at the top, and is ready for the flagship Core i9-9900K processor.
This motherboard is the new ASUS Z390 ROG Maximus XI, and you can see that there's some EK Water Blocks cooling above the CPU, with the same behemoth of a heat sink on the board. Looks great IMO, even in black and white as a preview image.
This is an interesting motherboard from ASUS: a new Z390 ROG Maximus XI Hero motherboard with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 branding on it. The heat sink on the board features the Black Ops 4 logo, while the M.2 heat sink below that has "Call of Duty: Black Ops 4" written on it. COD fans will snap this board up when they're building new gaming PCs centered around their new favorite game.
