ASUS ROG Rampage III Formula (Intel X58 Express) Motherboard - Final Thoughts

We take a look at the "mid" level ASUS ROG X58 offering in the Rampage III Formula to see if it has what it takes to keep that name.

Final Thoughts

 

The Rampage series of motherboards is a very solid line. We have taken a look at all of them now. From the Extreme to the Gene; they are all great products. The Rampage III Formula is no exception. We found it easy to use and quite agile when it came to performance.

 

On the overclocking side of things we had some odd results. For some reason we had incorrect readings from two different tests that gave an impression that when overclocked the RIIIF lost both memory and HDD performance. Fortunately for us we do not rely on synthetic tests alone and quickly found out that the RIIIF is more than capable of performing when overclocked. Our 4.41GHz clock is one of the best ones that we have gotten on our Core i7 980X.

 

But the RIIIF is not just about overclocking; ASUS has made sure to throw in features for the gamers out there. These are items like the SoundBlaster X-Fi audio software as well as the Game First QoS management tool. When you add these with the remote overclocking tools and excellent component choices, it really does add up to the $299.99 price tag from NewEgg.com.
