The unique Combo attaches to the motherboard near the rear I/O , and comes with one mSATA port supporting Intel Smart Response Technology hybrid storage acceleration with compatible mSATA SSDs, and a dual band 2.4/5 GHz Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n and Bluetooth v4.0 card bundled into its mini PCI Express 2.0/USB 2.0 combo port on the opposite side. This way, you can connect extra devices without taking up valuable space on the motherboard, and get the best of both worlds: for better connectivity and expandability without sacrificing essential features. The exclusive ROG Fusion Thermo Solution offers the world's first air and water cooling-ready thermal design, available on ROG Maximus V Formula motherboards. Alongside a premium heatsink, it integrates a heatpipe and an all-copper water channel with electroplated barbs on both ends, making it the most flexible choice for power users who wish to have more freedom when selecting cooling setups. Whether by air or water, it brings better heat removal from critical power delivery components for improved stability. It also makes liquid cooling installs simpler and quicker for an undisputed overclocking advantage.
