ASUS Rampage 4 Extreme Review

ASUS Rampage IV Extreme Review


It’s been a while since we’ve had an entirely new Rampage to look at. The last one we saw was the Rampage III Extreme which was an X58 based motherboard, similar to the Rampage II.

Now with the release of the X79 chipset and LGA2011 socket it’s time for a brand new board, and ASUS have certainly taken advantage of this by stuffing the Rampage IV Extreme so full of technologies and overclocking features that this is the longest review we’ve yet written.

We know that we have a lot to get through, and we equally know that you are aware of what we have on our hands, that we don’t want to spend too long telling you vague details when we can be showing you.

So grab a large coffee and settle in.

Technical Specifications

If you’ve read the i7-3960X review, and if you haven’t you’re missing out, then you’ll have a reasonable idea of the obvious new features on the X79 such as Quad channel RAM and a built-in Bluetooth receiver. 

The R4E also has an array of ASUS specific features enabling extreme overclocking which we’ll cover in the following pages.
