Rampage VI Omega

It seems that we have a new Rampage board, the Omega. Gone are a lot of the RGB lights (I'd turn them all off), but IMO, it's a cleaner looking board. Not as nice as the Apex was/is, but close. VRM cooling looks a bit more robust too. My question for Asus is when can we buy one.

The waterblock on this board is just a band aid for poorly designed VRMs. The Rampage Omega will be more than this board will ever be and looks better. I doubt the reviews will be bad as the 2 previous Rampage X299 boards were pretty capable overclockers. The new Omega looks like it has plenty of VRM cooling with the new heat sink and dual fans.

I thought I would bring this up to the top as these boards are hitting the market. I am running mine "stock" right now with my 7900X just to make sure everything is working correctly. So far, so good. I'll be sure to post some OC-ing results as soon as I have the time to sit down and and test some settings. Also would like to hear from anyone who has this m\board and what their results have been.

Did someone use VROC with the Omega?

That has yet to be seen. At X299 launch they all flubbed the VRMs. Id agree the passive heat sink design was for the birds but after putting a water block on I get all the power I need and the VRM temp never goes past 35C. Others did OK with installing fans and no one else is doubling the power phases, at least not that I have seen.

The big fail IMO is the loss of a PCIE slot due to the layout and jacking everything south to accommodate the VRM change. From what Raja said you will need a special took to get the ram out of the board. Don't understand why they didn't go with a CEB board or similar. Everything being so tight at the top doesn't look like the possibility of water cooling that VRM design is even a possibility.

To each is own. I hope this works out for those that dove into it head first and looking forward to some posts from users who went from the R6E to this board but keeping the rest of their system intact and comparing differences if any.

You are using a Rampage VI Extreme MB, hardly the same as the Strix I was using. A waterblock for the Strix boards looks like crap and is nothing more than a band aid. I wanted either a RIVE or the Omega. The Extremes are now extinct I think so I bought the Omega. If I could have found a new Extreme, I would have bought it. The real test will be when I start to push the 7900X.

Yes big difference between an extreme and budget board. If I had to build an X299 build right this second I would certainly choose the Omega over a Strix board. Funny how the name Strix takes on different meanings dependent on what the component is. Mother board signifies the budget minded choice while in GPUs its the flagship.

If the choice was wide open Im thinking I may be looking towards the dark side or even a WS sage simply for the retention of the PCIE slots. If that wasnt part of the equation Id be all in on the Omega. Cost isnt the issue, whats an extra C note?

Either way Im looking forward to see what it will do for the market it appeals to.

I've had the Omega in my Amazon cart for days, can't seem to swallow that insane $749.99 price tag. Maybe if they included a water block set, maybe.
Haven't seen any reviews out anywhere.
The one thing that is nagging at me from this purchase is, I've seen this end of life dance before with Asus Rampage boards X79> Black Edtion then they came out with 2011>2011v3 Edtion 10 etc, etc
Seems every time they come out with a special edition mobo, they change the Chipset a few months later.
This time around, my crystal ball is telling me to vote with my wallet.
You give Asus $749.99 for a mobo, the next gen they'll be asking for $1500.
I think I'll just milk my Rampage V for a while longer.

Im with you there on the price point and many other things. I see no gain to be had by this board other than ASUS bank account. They are blaming the price point on US tarriffs increasing but that doesnt seem to have affected any other board manufacturer. Paying a premium price is one thing, paying more than double that of an EVGA Dark that had a 16 phase power delivery system at launch more than a year ago is just plain lunacy. There are no gains to be had over whats already there. Cant say that 16 power phases is necessary after a year of 8 and impressive over clocks by the same.

Most X299 records are held by ASRock X299 OC Formula.
None of them are held by conventional cooling and the only AUS board up there is the Apex with 4 out of x299 first places where the asrock board has 26 and EVGA dark is sharing the same as Apex at 4 with 16 power phases.

ASUS had to starve the market from the R6E to even be able to sell the Omega. Ive seen more posters saying they were only going this route because of such than anything else. Im sorry I just dont see anything this board has to offer that makes it work twice as much as any of the competitors.

They are already looking for $1500 with the Dominus.

Ive been supporting ASUS products for a very long time paying a premium and justifying it in my mind but seldom on the benchmark leader board. Im afraid that this long run has come to an end, the price spread is just ridiculously huge.
