We want to thank ASUS for providing us a full retail motherboard to use for this launch. We are using an ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XII EXTREME Z490 motherboard. You can read a little more about this motherboard here. We will be performing a full review on this motherboard in the future, so stay tuned.
The ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XII EXTREME Z490 naturally supports the new LGA 1200 socket. As you can see in the pictures the actual mounting holes for coolers are the same as LGA 1151. We were easily able to install our Corsair H115i LGA 1151 mounting bracket on the board on the backside and the holes lined up perfectly. We were able to attach the threads to it with no issues. This allows us to mount our Corsair H115i using the included Intel bracket which fits on and screwed down perfectly.
You can see what the Intel Core i5-10600K looks like above, it is similar to any other Intel CPU. There are just more contacts on the backside.
The CPU easily secured in the socket and installing cooling was simple and just worked.
Here are some CPUz, HWiNFO and Aida64 CPU spec information screenshots for your viewing pleasure to learn all the details of this CPU.
