Test Setup

ASUS X99 RoG Rampage V Extreme
Intel Core i7-5960X
nVidia GTX780Ti
Corsair LPX 2800 DDR4
Gskill RipJaws 4 3000 DDR4
Corsair AX760i
Sandisk Extreme Pro SSD
Corsair H105
Custom Corsair 540 Air
Windows 7 x64    

Overclocking

Similarly to the Intel i7-5960X test we've got three batches of results for you today. Firstly we have the Corsair LPX running at 2800MHz, as seen in the left hand CPUz. Then the G.Skill at a massive 3000MHz, albeit the XMP costs us 60MHz of CPU performance.

Retaining the G.Skill memory and pushing it, along with the Intel Core i7-5960X, as far as they will go is an absolute breeze on the ASUS Rampage V Extreme. Even if we went a little too far the Safe Boot button saved our arse, and we ended up with a barely believable 4.5GHz on the i7-5960X with 3133MHz DDR4. If that doesn't shake your bacon then we don't know what will.

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
