ASUS has changed its colour scheme for the sixth generation series Republic of Gamers packaging. We have seen the last series come in a grey, black and orange colour scheme box but ASUS has gone for a red background with gold writing on it this time around.


On the front of the box you have the Rampage II Extreme motherboard model prominent in the middle with the support logos for CPU, chipset and graphics technology at the bottom left of the board.

Being a high-end board, ASUS has gone with the front exposure flap which when open allows a view of the board itself through the protective blister that the board comes in. This means ASUS can avoid putting any photos on the back of the box while still giving the potential customer a good view of the board before they buy it.

Thanks to the front open flap design, ASUS doesn't need to put any photos on the back of the board and they have taken full advantage of this by including a huge spec list on the back. This information is a direct copy of what's on the website, so you won't find any other specs on the ASUS site that differ from the back of the box. On the left side ASUS has some marketing info on the board and features that are included.

The board comes with a single user manual that explains the full workings and specifications of the ASUS motherboard. It also covers the driver install and software included as well as the BIOS setup; a very comprehensive manual form ASUS.


The DVD included has drivers and software for both Vista and XP in 32-bit and 64-bit variants. There are no Linux drivers, so alternate OS users are once again left in the dark.
