ASUS X99 ROG Rampage V Extreme Review

BIOS

As you would expect from the very latest, finely honed, BIOS it's an absolute joy to use. Everything is exactly where you would expect to find it. Everything is clearly labelled with an obvious function, and there are plenty of parameters to tweak. The great thing is that it can be as simple or as complicated as you wish, yet it is as simple to flick the XMP of your DDR4 Memory as it is to spend the day obtaining the very last micro-percentage of performance out.

The ability to gain full control over all of your fans is one that cannot be overstated. No longer are you limited to buying certain types of fan, or certain speeds. Every page of the BIOS has this level of depth and detail available on it. The days of a garish blue screen are long behind us, and the Rampage V Extreme is as gorgeous at the BIOS level as it is in use.

I wonder what the motherboard heatsink mounting holes are like for this one compared to other asus X99 motherboards. Wouldn't it be nice and convenient if it turns out they are in the same places meaning you could use something like say a motherboard/cpu combo waterblock that is made for the R5E on all asus X99 motherboards.

If only someone could check to confirm and perhaps even make a video on it? Quote

Strange: If you fancy a SLI setup - and would like full bandwith to both your cards (PEIe 3.0 x16) - then you are left with zero PCIe slots.

As I understand it, we are on the verge of seeing lots PCie connected storage as new standards have been finalized (NVMe). These require PCIe 3.0 x4 interfaces and that will not be possible on this board if you run SLI.

I doubt storage on the M2 interface will work for desktop users. Firstly, is was designed for laptops/tables in mind - and it does not seem line more than one connector is available on the boards who does have this interface.

So what we we supposed to use, if the SATA 3.0 max of 600 MB/Sec is not enough. PICe storage - that is what.Quote
