The Best Board out there.

Posted

Pros: Features, Features, Features, Overclocking, USB ports, options, OC KEY, Bios

Cons: None really

I bought this bored because it is the best, I think there may only be one similar board which the difference is the fact that it can do x16 PCIE on four slots,(AS rock X79 Extreme11) as opposed to this that can do x16 on only two or x16,x16,x8 or x16,x8,x8,x8 However this board is better overall, Over all though this is the BEST Mobo you can get, Oc key is awesome, allows you to have on screen display of hardware overclocking live hardware level OC'ing. only downside is that the OCkey only supports less than 2560x1440 so maybe like 1080p BUT you can use a second cheap monitor for that and have your main stuff on a nice 2560x1440 If you are serious and want the top of the line...

Cream of the Crop

Pros: Tons of BIOS settings, excellent overclocks

Cons: Pricey, E-ATX

My first foray into the Rampage series has been a positive one. The red and black theme goes great with the board and everything feels high quality. This is an awesome board, there are a ton of BIOS settings regarding timings, voltages, etc. These help fine-tune your overclock. I was able to get i7 3820 to 5.0Ghz without even breaking a sweat on the board. You can also use the OC profiles which get you to a respectable speed. There's also the OC key to help you change your settings in Windows and the ROG connect allows you to do so on a different computer. You can also the AI Suite to monitor and change you settings in Windows. The Start and Reset buttons on the board are very useful...

THE MoBo to beat atm

Posted

Pros: awesome overclockability, lots of features, Quad SLI/XFire, easy to OC, gorgeous black&red theme, OC key

Cons: bit pricey, and PCH fan is loud

This is the best MoBo I've ever had, actually. I've previously owned about 5 other MoBos, but none of them let me overclock as much as this. Hell, with my Foxconn Flaming Blade MoBo I coudln't even overclock anything! This is a board MEANT for Overclockers. Well, overclockers and people like me who want it all, who aren't happy with anything BUT the best. It's even got native support for L2N and the MoBo even allows you to put sensors on your MoBo that allow you to measure temps BELOW zero. Lots of USB ports, both USB2.0 as well as USB3.0 and both internally as externally. Lots of SATA connections too, which I find good and useful. The more, the merrier. It's an E-ATX MoBo, but it...

Asus Rampage IV Extreme

Posted

Pros: The design is great, easy to overclock

Cons: The Ez-Plug are located a little bit far ( it was hard to find a con)

Republic of Gamers is a quality product, you can't go wrong with a Rampage. It's my second Rampage, I had the Rampage III extreme and it works so flawlesly. The Rampage IV extreme is about the same quality but I found it much easier to overclock. I was able to reach 4.8Ghz easily under 70'C on the CPU under a day. There are more Sata 3 Ports. I use two SSD sata3. I have a triple Crossfire setup and I didnt encounter any issue. I had to think around 5-10 minutes to find a con because this board is more than amazing. I recommend it because it's my best system so far. For a better review done by a professionnal, here is one from March 5th...
