Unleash your inner power
The long wait for the ultimate small form factor motherboard is over. Built on the Intel Z390 platform, Maximus XI Gene delivers revolutionary performance that rivals high-end ATX systems with support for extreme overclocking, double-capacity DIMMs and next-generation storage. Maximus XI Gene is crafted to be a natural fit for showcase PC builds for gaming and style-conscious enthusiasts — where pure adrenaline meets pure style through the best performance.

THRILLING PERFORMANCE
With industry-first support for double-capacity DDR4 memory, comprehensive cooling and four M.2 slots for unthrottled SSD RAID storage, Maximus XI Gene lets you maximize the power of your SFF rig to achieve the performance of high-end ATX systems in a much more compact package.

POWER PERFORMANCE

DDR4 4400MHZ+
Whether you're gunning for high memory frequencies or tuning timings for the lowest latency, ROG Maximus XI Gene provides the tools you need to exploit the Coffee Lake architecture's full potential: carefully optimized trace pathways maintain signal integrity, and the acclaimed ROG firmware offers the necessary tweaks to ensure stability while maximizing memory performance. Load up with a high-density memory kit for heavy multitasking, or run a focused setup that delivers the bandwidth your favorite games and applications need. Any way you stack it, the Gene has you covered.

DOUBLE-CAPACITY DIMM SUPPORT
Maximus XI Gene features a unique memory-trace design that supports up to 32GB per channel for a total memory capacity of 64GB. With double-capacity UDIMM modules, Maximus XI Gene delivers four-DIMM memory bandwidth in a compact, dual-DIMM design.

BUILT FOR OVERCLOCKING
By default, all of Coffee Lake's major bus frequencies are derived from the same reference clock, limiting the control and flexibility needed to harness the full overclocking potential of the platform. ROG Maximus XI Gene features a dedicated onboard clock generator that supplies dynamic reference clocks to the CPU cores and major subdomains, giving you the freedom to coax every MHz of headroom from the system.

OVERCLOCKER'S TOOLKIT
HARDWARE-LEVEL CONTROLS

Maximus XI Gene comes equipped with four M.2 slots to let you take full advantage of Intel IRST and NVMe RAID for ultimate SSD storage speeds. Two M.2 slots on the ROG DIMM.2 module, an innovative expansion card that allows connections via a DDR4 interface, while the other two M.2 slots under the M.2 heatsink connect via PCIe 3.0.
