    Maximus X Extreme?

    Simple question, will we see a Maximus X Extreme?
    About to pull the trigger on a whole new setup, 1080Ti Poseidon, 8700K etc etc and I would love to have a motherboard like the Extreme for the Z270 with a sweet monoblock

    Alsolutely LOVE the Apex 10, although I cannot figure out why the 5G NIC was included and not Bluetooth/Wifi instead.

    Ordered an Asus AC55BT Bluetooth/Wifi riser card with a blue PCB for my Logitech MX Master 2S bluetooth mouse, for about $32, it works so well seems more powerful and responsive than the onboard Bluetooth on my M8E and R5E10.

    I'll put up some cool pics if anyone is interested in the Asus Bluetooth AIC.

    Sorry for getting off track, the M10E may be announced at CES Las Vegas on January 9th - 12th, but I'm gonna wait and pick up a Maximus 11 Extreme Z390.

    Of course, there is always a chance since the two chipsets will be introduced so close together, there may not be an M10E, who knows.

    Seems like all I do is wait for new hardware... my current rig/motherboard (Rampage IV BE) is so broken I can barely do anything so I can't bother to wait for Z390, especially since we don't really have a release date for it? (last time I checked at least)

    Then, Got sick of waiting for an unannounced board, AND AMD is rumored to release RYZEN refresh in March, so Intel may also release Z390 in March, just rumors, so I picked up the M10 Apex and love it so much.

    I've had three extreme boards M5E, M8E, and R5E10, great boards although that X99 chipset was really showing its age, in contrast Z370 is so fast, I'm booting in 6seconds with an Intel 900P Optane SSD, absolutely overwhelmed.


    It's ONLY about 12days until CES 2018, if you can wait that long, the M10E might be announced, if not go for the Apex 10 and save some money.

    ...unless you need lots of DIMM slots...


    I will definitely be purchasing the Maximus 11 Extreme (Z390) whenever it launches, and keep both the M10A, and M11E.

    Replacing my M8E, and R5E10.


    I'll try and wait 12 days then =P
    Thanks

    Since the Extreme has not been announced or rumored at all I would not wait myself, it wouldn't be the first time a generation was skipped
    While the IX Extreme was probably one of the best looking boards of all time I haven't seen ta high volume of people post with the boards, probably because of the extra cost of the included mono block. I skipped it because of that reason myself, and my building skills couldn't do it justice anyway
    The Apex line has turned out to be my favorite boards
