ASUS Rampage IV Extreme
"The Rampage IV Extreme. We've already looked at it in preview form and the board looks the goods. It's also been the main board that's behind our 3960X launch coverage for the simple reason it looks to be one of the best available come launch day. Since everything is already sitting so nicely in the Rampage IV Extreme, it seemed like the perfect motherboard to look at first up."
"This isn't the first time that we've seen this board, as we looked at it in a preview a while back. When we previewed this particular board, we did it in such a way that we showed you the design and layout of the board so that you could get a real feel for it and to see how things differ, not only with it being an X79 based board, but also how it compares to the older generation boards, like the Rampage III Extreme that utilised the X58 chipset."
"ASUS offers a whole line of boards, many of which we will feature here at Bjorn3D, but if you must have the best of the best, and are ready to annihilate the competition with the press of a button then give the Rampage IV Extreme a look."
"It really is difficult to find much to complain about with the Rampage IV Extreme. The main issue that may deter some buyers is price: at close to $500 it may be the most expensive X79 option yet. We also had problems when trying to uninstall graphics cards due to a minimal of space between the primary PCI-E slot and the CPU socket."
"For the gamer, there are the four PCIe 3.0 ready 16x slots that support both NVIDIA's Quad SLI along with AMD's Quad CrossFireX configurations at 16x/8x/8x/8x, to get the most out of the available graphics horsepower that can potentially be installed. Adding a fourth card limits availability of the connectivity at the bottom of the PCB, but there are sacrifices to be made for four video cards."
"The Republic of Gamers series of products has been the star of ASUS’s lineup for a long time, with the Extreme series motherboards highlighting the technological push ASUS represents within the PC industry. Today I’ll be looking at the Rampage IV Extreme, the highest-end motherboard ASUS makes for the new LGA2011 Sandy Bridge-E platform."
