ASUS Rolls Out ROG Strix X299-XE Gaming Motherboard

ASUS has just rolled out another X299 motherboard in their Republic of Gamers (ROG) brand. The board is the ROG Strix X299-XE Gaming, which is pretty much identical to the ROG Strix X299-E Gaming, except for the VRM heatsink…yeah that’s it.

ASUS has given this board a heavier CPU VRM heatsink, and has rigorously test the VRM to not run into thermal throttling issues, especially when powering high core-count Core i9 processors.

Many X299 motherboards and the whole Core X socket LGA2066 platform has been criticized by professional overclockers as being “a VRM disaster”. This board is as we said is identical to the ROG Strix X299-E Gaming, except a few grams added to the VRM heatsink. Hopefully ASUS does not charge a premium for just that.
