Because it's red.

Just below the four DDR3 dual-channel memory slots you can see the board has on-board power and reset buttons. To the left of those you can see four switches that are on the board to enable/disable the four PCIe x16 slots on the M4E. Just below those you'll find eight voltage check points along the edge of the motherboard. These are monitoring CPU, DRAM, PCH voltages among others. The board also has a switch called 'LN2 Mode' and this is for very extreme users who want to use liquid nitrogen cooling. This must also go along with the 'DDR_Crazy' LED light next to the memory. We can only assume that it allows for insane voltage options in the EFI BIOS to be unlocked. Speaking of the BIOS, the Maximus IV Extreme has not one, but two BIOS chips on the board and there is a switch on the board that allows you to change between the BIOS versions.

ASUS went with an NVIDIA NF200 chip on the board to boost the number of PCIe lanes up to 32. This means you can now run dual-GPUs are x16 on each slot or a set of three cards in Triple SLI at x16/x8/x8 for improved performance. This is clearly an enthusiast board and will have an expensive price tag on it when it comes out. The back panel is hard to see from the image ASUS sent us, but they told us that the board has the usual combination PS/2 mouse and keyboard port, a bunch of USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports, 8-channel audio, dual gigabit Ethernet, eSATA, optical audio and of course clear CMOS, reset and power buttons.

I knew it. Had a horrible feeling it would go down like this. Bet they've changed other things too.

Custom coolers are a nice marketing feature but not always better, especially not when it comes to SLI/Tri-SLI. Just look at my Palit fiasco...
Yeah I really like the temps on the ASUS 580GTX, In my case the temps should be better. It looks like I may get the ASUS P8P67 Deluxe instead. This a dumb question but the NF200 is it only used for tri SLI?
