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.


ADDRESSABLE GEN 2 RGB HEADER

The Impact's Addressable Gen 2 headers are now capable of detecting the number of LEDs on second-gen addressable RGB devices, allowing the software to automatically tailor lighting effects to specific devices. The new headers also offer backward-compatibility with existing Aura RGB gear.


Impact control IV

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

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.


POWER STAGE MOSFETS

The VRM is comprised of 8+2 TDA21472 power stages, each rated to handle 70 amps.


MICROFINE ALLOY CHOKES

Each power stage is accompanied by a high-permeability alloy-core choke rated to handle 45 amps.


10K JAPANESE-MADE BLACK METALLIC CAPACITORS

Metallic capacitors Input and output filtering is provided by solid-polymer capacitors rated to last thousands of hours at high operating temperatures.


WIFI 6 (AX200)

ROG Crosshair VIII Impact comes with onboard Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) support, offering ultrafast networking speeds, improved network capacity and better performance in dense Wi-Fi environments for exceptional online gaming experiences with the convenience of a wireless connection.


INTEL ETHERNET

ROG Crosshair VIII Impact features the latest Intel® Ethernet (I211-AT) ensuring data exchanges with your network and the outside world are fast and smooth. Intel LAN reduces CPU overhead and increases TCP and UDP throughput, keeping more processing power.​​


ACCURATE VOLTAGE MONITORING

Conventional motherboards ues single-ended sensing tapped from a location that isn't ideal, leading to a large disparity between the actual voltage fed to the CPU and the value reported to software. The Impact features a differential sensing circuit that simplifies overclocking and tuning by allowing you to track voltages more accurately.

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.


DUAL PCIE 4.0 M.2

Dual PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots support up to 2280 and provide NVMe SSD RAID support for an incredible performance boost. Create a RAID configuration with two PCIe 4.0 storage devices to enjoy the fastest data-transfer speeds on the 3rd Generation AMD Ryzen platform.


ROG SO-DIMM.2

ROG SO-DIMM.2 is an innovative expansion card that allows two PCIe® 4.0 M.2 drives to be connected via Impact's SO-DIMM interface. You can then add metal heatsinks, helping to control thermals for maximum performance while elevating the aesthetics.

THE IMPACT

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.


ACTIVE VRM AND CHIPSET COMBO HEATSINK

  • 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.


COOLER BY DESIGN

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

  • 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.​
  • Every onboard header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.
  • 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.


90 DEGREE CONNECTOR

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


UEFI BIOS

The renowned ROG UEFI (BIOS) provides everything you need to configure, tweak, and tune your rig. It offers intelligently simplified options for newcomers to PC DIY, as well as comprehensive features for seasoned veterans.
