Based on Intel’s X79 Express chipset with support for Intel’s LGA 2011 Core i7 Ivy Bridge-E CPUs, the new Rampage IV Black Edition is based on an E-ATX form factor and features all of the best ROG technologies and innovations for unrivaled gaming and overclocking performance. Born to push limits and break records, it includes the OC Panel, a real-time system-monitoring and tuning console that is great for gamers and a huge advantage for overclockers. It can be mounted in a 5.25? bay for everyday monitoring of temperatures, base clock and fan speeds while also offering one-click CPU Level Up for an instant speed boost. Externally, it can sit on the desktop and be used to monitor and control multiple parameters in real-time via onboard buttons. Extreme overclocking has never been easier!
As far as the specification go, the new ASUS ROG Rampage IV Black Edition features four PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slots with support for both 4-way NVIDIA SLI and AMD CrossFireX, two PCI-Express 2.0 x1 slot, eight DIMM memory slots will support for up to 64GB of DDR3 DRAM and will comes with included free copy of Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag game.
Although it was not yet widely available, ASUS ROG Rampage IV Black Edition have already been in the hands of world-class overclockers and currently holds top scores in multiple benchmarks as well as other world records on the X79 platform.
In order to make a perfect and premium X79-based motherboard, ROG engineers combined thoughtful design with superior quality components providing it with Extreme Engine DIGI+ III voltage-regulator module (VRM) for highly precise and stable power delivery by employing NexFET MOSFETs, 60A (amp) chokes and high-endurance Japanese-made 10K black metallic capacitors. With black-themed heatsink that is integrated with the MOSFET area and extends to the input/output cover, the new Rampage IV Black Edition provides not only better cooling and stability but also a piece of bragging right in any open-window case.
The new Rampage IV Black Edition also comes with built-in SupremeFX Black technology provides sound quality that is on par with high-end dedicated sound cards. Premium components such as ELNA audio capacitors and German-made WIMA film capacitors deliver impeccable clarity, while high-fidelity op-amps (operational amplifiers) and a Cirrus Logic CS4398 DAC (digital/analog converter) deliver lossless audio and a brilliant 120dB SNR (signal-to-noise ratio).
It just would not be a Republic of Gamers product without the Sonic Radar, an on-screen overlay that provides fans of first-person shooter (FPS) games with an ear to the ground, as it displays the precise direction and origin of in-game sounds such as gunshots, footsteps and call-outs ? giving ROG gamers a leg-up when trying to pinpoint the enemy. It also features ultra-fast Intel Gigabit Ethernet with ROG’s GameFirst II utility which optimizes network traffic to keep latency at a minimum and reduce all-important ping times as well as the ROG RAMDisk utility which allows up to 80% of a computer’s available RAM to be used as a high-speed virtual drive ? lending a strong performance boost to many modern games that regularly read or write data during gameplay.

Rampage IV Black Edition has eight DIMM sockets for up to 64GB of DRAM (DDR3 2800MHz+, overclocked), supports up to 4-way graphics card (multi-GPU) setups, includes Extreme Engine DIGI+ III voltage-regulator module (VRM) for ultra-stable power delivery and benefits from SupremeFX Black, for audio that’s as great as a high-end dedicated sound card. Bundled with a free copy of Assassin's Creed® IV: Black Flag, it is a truly formmidable package.
ROG assembled the best to break the limits
Rampage IV Black Edition has been modeled to delight overclockers. The motherboard is bundled with OC Panel, a real-time system-monitoring and tuning console that’s great for gamers and a huge advantage for overclockers. It can be mounted internally for everyday monitoring of temperatures, base clock and fan speeds with one-click CPU Level Up for an instant speed boost, or used externally for hardcore tweaking to monitor and control multiple parameters via on-machine buttons in real-time. Extreme overclocking has never been easier.
Rampage IV Black Edition has plenty of room for multi-GPU setups, with support for both 4-way NVIDIA® SLI™ and AMD CrossFireX so gamers can also unleash th the full power of the latest graphics technologies.
To break the limits, ROG engineers combined thoughtful design with superior quality components. Rampage IV Black Edition’s Extreme Engine DIGI+ III voltage-regulator module (VRM) provides highly precise and stable power delivery by employing NexFET MOSFETs, 60A (amp) chokes and high-endurance Japanese-made 10K black metallic capacitors. As well, the motherboard’s awesome black-themed heat-sink is exclusively cleverly integrated with the MOSFET area and extends to the input/output (I/O) cover for even better cooling and stability.
With such masterful design, it is no surprise that Rampage IV Black Edition has already broken many world records. It currently holds world-beating scores in 3DMark11 Entry (E39244), 3DMark11 Performance (P41531), 3DMark11 Extreme (X22531), 3DMark Fire Strike (34246) and 3DMark Vantage (P96500). As well as setting new top scores in these exacting benchmark tests, Rampage IV Black Edition has also claimed numerous other world records on X79 platform, overclocking an i7-4820k processor to 6943MHz and G.Skill quad-channel DDR3 kit to 4072MHz. It has also generated the highest base clock (BCLK) yet for the X79 platform an astonishing 197.16MHz and pushed the Intel Extreme Tuning Utility all the way up to 1924 marks.
Built for the most demanding games and gamers
Rampage IV Black Edition is packed with features that will delight the hardest of hardcore gamers. Built-in SupremeFX Black technology provides sound quality that’s on a par with high-end dedicated sound cards. Premium components such as ELNA® audio capacitors and German-made WIMA® film capacitors deliver impeccable performance, while high-fidelity op-amps (operational amplifiers) and a Cirrus Logic® CS4398 DAC (digital/analog converter) deliver lossless audio and a brilliant 120dB SNR (signal-to-noise ratio). A Hi-Fi-quality Texas Instruments® TPA6120A2 600ohm headphone amplifier boosts every sound detail for personal listening, too. Exclusive EMI (electromagnetic interference) isolation technology and a newly-upgraded NEC/TOKIN UC2 audio relay protects electrical circuits from overload and reduces ‘pops’ enabling Rampage IV Black Edition to deliver warm, clear and natural audio.
ROG’s Sonic Radar on-screen overlay provides fans of first-person shooter (FPS) games with an ear to the ground, as it displays the precise direction and origin of in-game sounds such as gunshots, footsteps and call-outs giving ROG gamers a foot-up when trying to pinpoint the enemy.
Ultra-fast Intel Gigabit Ethernet with ROG’s GameFirst II utility optimizes network traffic to keep latency to minimum and reduce all-important ‘ping’ times, while the ROG RAMDisk utility allows up to 80% of a computer’s available RAM to be dedicated as a high-speed virtual drive lending a strong performance boost to thee many modern games that regularly read or write data during play.
Stunning style to the core
Rampage IV Black Edition is undoubtedly stunning to behold and the sensational black styling runs ddeeper than surface beauty. The new motherboard includes a UEFI BIOS that displays a friendly graphical interface styled with the gorgeous new black theme.
As well as looking fantastic, Rampage IV Black Edition’s new UEFI BIOS is brilliantly easy to use with tons of powerful tuning options and the ability to set up overclocking profiles. Built in to the UEFI BIOS is Secure Erase, a feature that lets users quickly restore SSDs to a factory-fresh condition for the best possible performance.
