    This review is from: ASUS PCIe 3.0 4-Way SLI/CrossFireX Support Intel X79 ATX DDR3 2400 LGA 2011 Motherboards Rampage IV Formula (Personal Computers)

    This is the 4th PC I’ve built from scratch. My previous one was built 1st quarter of 2007. It was an Intel Core Duo, or Duo Core, whatever. So with this machine, I bought the best of the best. And it is one of the fastest machines out there today.

    So let me start off by saying, this motherboard has everything you could ever want, except firewire. It has plenty of USB ports on the back, and it has plenty of USB headers on the motherboard itself. I was able to connect up my USB 3 and USB 2 ports on the front of my CoolerMaster HAF X case. I was also able to add a front mounted memory card reader with an extra USB port using one of the motherboard headers, and I even had an un-used USB 3 header on the MB, so I bought a back bracket from ASUS themselves. So I think in total, I have maybe 15 USB ports on my machine, that are directly connected to the motherboard itself. No Hubs used here. LOVE IT!

    I opted for the Corsair liquid cooled H80 system. So far, so good. No problems with over heating. Seems to stay a nice 25c under normal load. I haven’t checked to see what it runs while in BF3 yet.

    Since this thing has 8 DIMM slots, I bought 32GB of ram. Overkill for most of what I use the machine for, but will come in handy when I work on big After Effects Projects. I’ve always been bottle necked in the past by memory. My files get so detailed, that I can only preview a couple seconds at a time. So I an anxious to get a new After Effects project to see how this really handles.

    I’ve run the Windows 7 64bit performance test, and everything runs at 7.9, except for the processor. It runs at 7.8. Kinda disappointing. But still faster than my 5.2 system previously.

    Which brings me to the biggest gripe. I should have bought a lesser motherboard and saved a little money. Because this board is truly for the die hard overclockers. I think I counted the word ‘overclock’ about 50 times on the first page alone of the manual. For me, overclocking isn’t that big of deal. I would rather keep a stable machine, than try to pump out as much power as possible.

    ASUS has truly given you full access to everything you could possibly do for overclocking. There’s even a spot on the motherboard where they say you can “hotwire” your video cards without the risk of damaging them. At first, I thought it was just at term they used loosely to mean some settings you can tweak to “hotwire” more power out of your video cards. No, they actually mean, you can solder a wire from the motherboard to the video card. How does that eliminate the risk of damaging the cards?

    See, I really am not the target person for this board. There are probably some of you that are rolling over probably thinking I’m not worthy for such a board. And I’ll agree with you.

    There’s even a sensor called the Subzero sense. Its to be able to sense temperatures below zero. Again, even if I were to have built this machine in my freezer, I still would not be taking full advantage of that feature.

    So if you are a true nerd, I mean overclocker, that must get every bit of power from this board, this motherboard is perfect for you. If you’re a, I want to build the best machine to play Battlefield 3, most likely you’d be able to save some money and go with a cheaper board.

    I’d recommend going to the ASUS website first and finding a digital copy of the manual before buying this. The manual actually does a great job explaining about all the features of this board. The descriptions you see here on Amazon, and other sites, including ASUS’s own product page, are very vague. The manual covers it all in pretty good detail. Although I’m still unsure where I need to solder the wire to on the actual video card.

    But, really, I’m pretty happy with this board. I ran into zero issues with recognition of hardware. Except the memory speed was auto selected as a notch slower than it should have been. But was easy enough to change in the BIOS. (oh, and this thing has two removable BIOS chips. How cool is that? Fry one, use the other, and replace it with a $15 chip from ASUS) And really, with the amount of money I spent on my total machine, the extra cost of this motherboard was nothing really. Plus, it still provides enough room to expand when some newer technology comes out. Like PCI Express 3.

    This review is from: ASUS PCIe 3.0 4-Way SLI/CrossFireX Support Intel X79 ATX DDR3 2400 LGA 2011 Motherboards Rampage IV Formula (Personal Computers)

    This is my first custom build that I’ve picked out myself. I’m very proud of it. The case it comes with makes a good pillow. If you need help, I discovered that the ROG forums are full of friendly and helpful people. The included disc is packed with goodies to get you started.

    I named my computer Zeus. Here’s the build:
    64 Bit Windows 7 Ultimate, Rampage IV Extreme motherboard, G. Skill Ripjaws Z series 19200 PC3 RAM (that’s 2400MHz by the way), Western Digital 2TB 6GB/s HDD, Intel I7 Extreme 3930K Step C2 Processor (from the UK), Noctua NH-D14 Cooling unit, Silverstone Strider 1500W PSU, and the AMD Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 Graphics Card… not the oc edition.

    No problems at all with the motherboard, but I’d recommend a different graphics card. Nothing but trouble with the one I got…

    When I got the motherboard, I opened the box and it was packed pretty well, could have been a little better though. Anyway, I popped it into the tower, hooked up everything perfectly, until it didnt turn on.. This irriitated me right away since ASUS is known for its “instant start up” quality. Well this didnt happen; I spend an hour figuring it out until i accidently hit the 24 pin connecting wires. The motherboard booted on. I figured maybe it was loose, I touched the wire again to secure it, and it turned off. Long story short, the 24 pin socket was messed up, something wasnt catching in there causing a loose connection. I called up amazon, they sent me an RMA slip and I shipped it back. I ordered a new one and hopefully this one doesnt have any problems!

    Otherwise, I ve been working with ASUS motherboards for quite some time and I love the product, the formula and extreme editions are great boards for gaming and overclocking the hell out of your cpu and gpu!
