ASUS Rampage IV Extreme (Intel X79) Motherboard Preview - Final Thoughts

ASUS unleash the fury and get into a Rampage with the soon to come X79 chipset. Let's preview the Rampage IV Extreme!

| Socket LGA 2011 in Motherboards | Posted: Oct 25, 2011 3:56 pm
Manufacturer: ASUS

Final Thoughts

 

The ASUS Rampage IV Extreme looks to be an absolute beast of a board and one of the absolute best ROG boards we've seen to date from the company. While it's got so many features that concentrate on the most extreme cooling solutions, the effort that goes into making the board so strong in this area tends to also carry over into our less extreme cooling solutions, be it water or high end air.

 

Top to bottom, though, the Rampage IV Extreme just yells performance. If you listen carefully you can hear another voice yelling "expensive" too. You just have to look at the feature set on the board to know that it's going to carry a premium; the inclusion of new extras like the OC Key are also going to help push up the price.

 

We haven't seen a lot of boards in person, but it's probably fairly safe to assume that this is going to be one of the most hardcore options on the market and any true ROG fan is going to absolutely love what ASUS has brought to the table.

 

As soon as the NDA lifts, the Rampage IV Extreme will be one of the first boards we look at, and that's for two reasons. I want to know how hard it goes and we know that you all want to know as well.

 

Speaking of yelling, I can hear four Sapphire HD 6970s in the background just gagging to be installed. All in time!
