ASUS ROG Rampage III Formula (Intel X58 Express) Motherboard

We would like to thank the following companies for supplying and supporting us with our test system hardware and equipment Intel, ASUS, corsair and Sceptre.


As with the overclocking, the setup of the Rampage III Formula was a snap. After the installation of Windows 7 x64 we simply dropped the installer DVD into the drive (after turning off User Account Controls). This presented us with the typical ASUS driver DVD ROM options. From there you can choose to install the drivers one by one or use the InstallALL utility.




You can also do the same thing for the Utilities page (although I do wish there was one installALL for the lot). Here you have the new AISuite II as well as the Sound Blaster X-Fi MB2 software to add the X-Fi touch to the VIA Audio. The X-Fi software can give you "better" audio when gaming or when listening to other audio, if the game or player you are using supports it. So it is kind of a hit or miss offering.




There is even a page with videos if you want to watch someone else overclocking a motherboard…




ASUS really does have an easy to use board here from the layout right down to the installation of drivers and utilities.
