Features:

Crosshair VIII IMPACT
The ROG Crosshair VIII series heralds the arrival of Impact, the compact motherboard with colossal potential. Primped and primed for latest 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen CPUs, Crosshair VIII Impact's Mini-DTX frame packs loads of ATX-grade features, including advanced power delivery and cooling, dual M.2, next-gen Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) and onboard SupremeFX audio. It's the perfect choice for a small-form-factor gaming rig ready to rival full-size builds.

COMPACT DESIGN
Impact's unusual Mini-DTX form factor is a deliberate choice. Many Mini-ITX cases ship with enough space for a dual-slot graphics card, meaning there's typically unused space below the bottom PCIe® slot – space that could be utilized to mount more components or enable additional features. Being marginally taller than mini-ITX allows Impact to exploit this unused space, allowing ROG engineers to squeeze in features while still fitting a large proportion of mini-ITX PC cases. ROG Crosshair VIII Impact stacks up storage, audio and control features onto innovative vertical daughter boards, leaving us spare room onboard to add more connectivity and engineer features normally found on ATX boards into a small-form-factor (SFF) footprint.

ROG patented pre-mounted I/O shield
A convenient fit for all cases.

Impact control IV
Onboard control card adds BIOS FlashBack™, Clr CMOS, Q-Code and FlexKey* functionality, simplifying firmware access, updates, and debugging.

ADDRESSABLE RGB HEADERS
Allows connection to a vast portfolio of Aura Sync-capable PC gear.

Water Flow/ Water In &out headers
Enables constant monitoring of coolant temperatures and the flow rate of the entire loop to ensure the best cooling performance.

90 degree connector
Onboard connectors are deliberately perpendicular to the board, aiding cable-management and a tidy build.

Heatsinks
We've fully exploited the extra space afforded by Impact's Mini-DTX form factor to dedicate more space to the board's VRM and chipset cooling design.

Dual Custom Delta Superflo Fans : The custom low-noise fans feature a high-durability bearing with a 60,000-hour L10* lifespan.
Dual-Intake Fan Bracket : A unique brace design recesses the fans to enable reliable ventilation in tight spaces.
Finned Heatsink : The heatsink fin density is optimized to maximize surface area while maintaining a low-resistance exhaust path.
OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE
ROG Crosshair VIII Impact is equipped with an optimized power design and comprehensive cooling to exploit prodigious might of the latest AMD Ryzen processors without performance-zapping thermal throttling. It also packs innovations to double up on memory and push frequencies to the max.

POWER DESIGN
The monstrous compute power of multi-core processors necessitates a power circuit that rapidly responds to massive current swings. Featuring an array of 10 strategically paired power stages, the Impact's VRM is geared for any workload and all operating conditions.

8-PIN PROCOOL II POWER CONNECTORS
The latest ProCool II power connector offers higher endurance and longer lifespan by lowering impedance to prevent hotspots and connector failure. The new design includes upgrades to metal amour and solid pins for better dissipation.

OPTIMEM III DDR4 4800+ MHZ (O.C.)
Infused with proprietary memory trace layout tweaks that improve signal integrity and mitigate noise, Optimem III allows memory kits to run at lower latencies, reduced voltages, and operate at higher frequencies. Stack the Impact with your favorite modules and maximize Ryzen 3000 throughput for applications that demand massive bandwidth, or balance infinity fabric and memory performance for a diverse range of workloads.

DOUBLE-CAPACITY DIMM SUPPORT
Crosshair VIII Impact features a unique memory-trace design that supports up to 32GB per slot for a total memory capacity of 64GB. With double-capacity UDIMM modules, the Impact delivers four-DIMM memory capacity in a compact, dual-DIMM design.

COOLER BY DESIGN
ROG Crosshair VIII Impact features the most comprehensive cooling options ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS.

Multiple temperature sources
Each header can be set to monitor and react to three user-configurable thermal sensors for workload-based cooling. And all settings can be easily managed by Fan Xpert 4 or UEFI.

Water pump+
A dedicated header that can supply over 3A to high-performance PWM or DC water pumps.

4-pin PWM/DC fan
Every onboard header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.

ROG Water-Cooling Zone
Water In/Out and water-flow headers feed status information straight into the AI Suite utility, so you can keep track of coolant temperatures and the flow rate of the entire loop to ensure the best cooling performance.
