No chance of this board being under $400. Think more like $450- 500.



I'm not sure I like where they went with the heatsink designs. I'm sure they have a purpose but they are not nearly as good looking as the MIVE or the RIIIE.

After owning the MIVE, R3E, and the WS p67 I have to say I'm disappointed in the pcie layout of the MIVE and I'm glad the R4E will be similar to its predecessor. I'm hoping it will be under $400, if not, I'm don't mind waiting for a bit and get a preowned one. Plus, I would need a new case that supports xl-atx.

I hear ya man. I was about to pick up a AsRock board for my SB build but got this board brand new for $280.

I love the ROG boards but their prices are a bit ludicrous. I guess performance comes at a cost. :/

Beautiful motherboard once it has been fully leaked and shown to be in it's almost naked glory. However this is the Rampage II Extreme of the X79 world and you can expect the same prices as the Rampage II Extreme during 2008. At that time when I purchased the Rampage II Extreme it's retail was close to $500+ CAD. I'm expecting similar pricing in the 450-500+ range in terms of USD.

The Original poster also needs to update the first post to include the source of the XS Rampage IV Extreme pictures reveal/leak.

Just noticed that there is PCI Express 3.0 Ports. In addition to USB3.0 and Sata 6/III that seems to be a great deal of future proofing on a single motherboard. However the question that should be asked is how long this remains Flagship until a Rampage V Extreme replaces it. With the Rampage II Extreme it required roughly 1-2 Years perhaps we will see a similar precedent.

Hmm. Just dawned on me that it's e-atx. Test bench is only ATX >.> this'll be interesting.

I think after market cooling is going to have to come up with a new shape to work with these new socket 2011 boards, unless you water cool.

Personally I'm hoping for a Tri Sli Sabertooth 2011 board.

Other than that it's perfect. 3-way SLI or Crossfire, and can have my sound card, 8 Dimm slots, and when Ivy-Bridge Rolls around through slap the biggest core CPU I can find in there.
Go with the ud7 lol

Where's my Rampage Gene IV ?!?!?!
post #80 of 81
i see on the box it says you save $486 by buying the board compared to buying 2 thermocouples and a meter that goes down to -200, for me i bought new at $100 for my meter and it came with 2 probes. From sper scientific on amazon, (search for j-type probe)

Also -200C? dude ima buy the board and test that out, because most 99% of k-type probes bunk out from -175 to -185, and don't go down to -196C which is Ln2 boiling point. you stick you probe in LN2 and it reads -175, and you are like damn this LN2 sucks LOL.

The only issue i see at this point, is that SB-E isn't a subzero platform, at least not one that is subzero friendly, CB from what i hear is worse than SB.


Very nice board tho, i definitively see the move towards making it more subzero friendly, i really like it!
