Born from the Formula, the Maximus IX Code gives gamers the aesthetic appeal of Aura Sync lighting, the convenience of onboard Wi-Fi, and the reliability of long-lasting components. It's christened Code to echo the defining layer of ROG Armor that protects and streamlines the board. Code has roots in codex, a Latin term describing the precursor to modern books that became popular due to its unique and durable cover. The Maximus IX Code seeks to set a new standard in motherboard design by making ROG Armor more accessible to gamers.
