If you are checking out motherboards to pair with the latest AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors, well, look no further. ASUS’ ROG Zenith II Extreme and ROG Strix TRX40-E Gaming are now here in Malaysia priced from RM2499.

Both boards feature a 16 powerstages cooled by a rather substantial heatsink with two semi-passive fans that only turn on when temperatures hit above 60°C, allowing silent operation under low load scenarios and well-controlled thermals when you are crunching heavy workloads.

Both motherboards also offer a LiveDash OLED display on the I/O shroud. While the first ROG Zenith Extreme and several other high-end ROG boards has already offered it, this is the first time a ROG Strix board touts the LiveDash OLED panel. Of course, the ROG Zenith II Extreme takes it a step even further with a color display instead of the ROG Strix TRX40-E Gaming’s monochrome one.
