Mid November?!

Where did you read that? I've been looking everywhere for a release date.

Do you know what processors will be available?


Nexus6 10-28-2011 08:51 AM

My next upgrade. Just need to match it with the 3960x.

What are you going to do with your 980X/R3E. I want to go SB-E, but I do not want a 980X and R3E sitting around unused that I paid alot of money for. Not to mention I would also upgrade my GPU so I would have a GTX480 gathering dust also.

OutlawNeedsHelp 10-28-2011 12:30 PM

How much?

You could turn it into a folding rig, or give it away tongue.gif

But I know how you feel, I'd love to upgrade to this but what to do with my sig rig? Might give it to dad.. or a brother...

Mr.Eiht 10-28-2011 12:42 PM

I would get one. It depends on the price and tbh I have no need for all these PCI-e lanes.
I just need the raw CPU power no quad-fire ready board frown.gif
Besides it should be the wickedest board out there, no doubt!

CloudCR 10-28-2011 12:47 PM

Count me in! *Updates sig*

Tweak17emon 10-28-2011 12:49 PM

im in on this. i just hate the 4 pin placement.

btw, is that a standard ATX? doesnt look like it for some reason. looks like a EATX...

CloudCR 10-28-2011 12:54 PM

It is indeed EATX

If Asus was smart they'd release it alongside the SB-E lineup on the 14th. I personally don't plan on waiting and if this so happens to not be available on the 14th or right around it, then I may try something else. I really hope not though, this mobo is much more appealing than any others I've seen...besides the SR-3 but that's a totally different discussion.

See above. Again, they'd be silly not to release it alongside the new chips... >.>

Also for everyone not sure what to do with their old rigs, just throw 'em on CL. Hell I put mine up there for a week at a slightly ridiculous price and it sold. Or is pending sale anyway, the guy said he is 100% serious, he's picking it up and paying me the weekend after I get back from Europe on the 9th. AKA a reason for me to keep it and continue to fold on during the folding forum wars wink.gif

I'm relying on that sale going through for pretty much everything SB-E redface.gif

jblanc03 11-01-2011 03:50 AM

So when is the release date?
and can we preorder somehow?

sockpirate 11-01-2011 03:58 AM

that spacing looks really good on the PCI-E slots, im wondering though would it be able to handle 4 MSI Lightning Extremes? The Maximus IV Extreme barely handles my 3 and i have to use silicon spacers to keep the fans from coming into contact with the subsequent pcb.

I am really looking into going with SB-E in January and if these can handle 4 LEs with easy i would be very happy.

EDIT: Also a quick question will SB-E also be 22nm like Ivy Bridge, or is that the sole purpose of Ivy bridge, the fact that it is actual 22nm?

driftingforlife 11-01-2011 04:04 AM

Must have!!!! Never be able to afford it though, might have to wait till IB-E for a real upgrade.

No, its 32nm like SB.

So i am guessing holding out for IB-E would be where its at, having the same or better processing power/clocks on a 22nm die?

driftingforlife 11-01-2011 04:11 AM

Basicly yes, 22nm and tri-gate transistors.

True, but if trend follows suit, kinda likely.

I'm just hoping quad SLI is feasible with no reference/non waterblocked GPUs. I would love it smile.gif SB-E or IB-E smile.gif

Assuming there is going to be an IB-E, how long far off do you think it would be? 1 or 2 years maybe?

It was just a guess a question. As I understand it, ibe has new gate technology. I heard it was on track, just wasn't sure what the time frame was.

EDIT:
@Don Karnage, I noticed your sig rig. Are you currently running that hardware?

Yea but I bet you the X79 WS doesn't have red lights, can you imagine your life without red lights-of course not.

Can't say I've ever had an issue with any board but I must say I'm somehow addicted to the ROG series boards.

I will be so happy if these can fit 4x Lightning Extremes! It looks like it will be able to! If so i will be setting my Maximus IV and 2600k up for quicksell prices!!!

OverK1LL 11-03-2011 08:12 AM

Is it just me or is this guy absolutely terrible at reviewing?

I did learn a couple new things about the board, but between the terrible camera shots and lack of component knowledge, I wonder how he gets such awesome hardware to review.

According to this guy, the R4E has an LCD poster, a CPU cooling fan on the SB, external USB 3.0 Headers located internally, and a BIOS clear button.

In his defense it was his first look, a lot of his "first looks" are like this, he always corrects himself when he does the actual full reviews. I really enjoy TTL's full reviews.

I do like how Linus from NCIX does his video reviews though, gives you nice presentation and a good amount of info.

sockpirate 11-06-2011 04:42 AM

So ttl responded to my question about 4X msi LE cards fitting on this board, he said something to the effect that if 2x 3 slot cards fit that 4x msi LE should fit? For some reason this doesn't sound right to me....anyone?

Sin0822 11-06-2011 01:13 PM

there is no defense for not knowing jack about hardware if you are going to review it. i think I am getting one of these very soon as a review sample.

if i can see the board i can automatically know every IC on it and what its used for, as well as analyze the ICs and importantly the power delivery system and how it works. After going over so many boards with different ICs and configurations you begin to know what everything does.

it is almost as bad as doing a mobo review and not taking the heatsink off at all.

KShirza1 11-06-2011 01:24 PM

def looking forward to this

you think 4x MSI Lighning Extremes will fit on the board sin? I know 3 barely fit on my M4E.

Khalam 11-06-2011 05:12 PM

since the board is ment for 4 way sli and all cards you would use on it would be 2 slot ones at least then you can safely assume that they will fit;) btw Sockpirate im gone be rocking 4 lightnings on a EVGA 4 way sli Classified in a week or so;) ill let you know how it performs

sweet man!!! Let me know!!! I am really going to consider going with this board and going with SB-E in January since that will be the only time i can afford it haha...So IB-E if it even comes out wont even be feasible for my bank account lol!

Sin0822 11-06-2011 09:17 PM

yea they should fit, but barley id guess since those fans look to be pushing it a bit out of double slot spacing.

JGore 11-06-2011 09:26 PM

releasing this week perhaps...how reliable are the nov 14th predictions?
what price should we be expecting? $450-650 USD?

Sin0822 11-06-2011 10:00 PM

no way its releasing this week. Nov 14 is next week. Nov 14 is NDA lift date.

yeah three barely fit on my m4e, i cant screw them in or the fans touch, i have to leave them unscrewed and i use some silicon squares to keep them from touching, im sure the Rampage will be similar.

Alatar 11-07-2011 12:55 AM

Will hopefully be buying this. Depends on the price actually, I just can't justify over 450€ and even that's pushing it.

Hope to join near xmas smile.gif

wutang61 11-07-2011 01:00 AM

hoping this board is round about $400. cant see (me) paying much more.

a 600 dollor board is kookoo.gif

but count me in. been a long time buyer into ROG. laptops mainly.

RE4 + 3930K = biggrin.gif

Thats the same thing that happened to me today. I was so upset I wanted fight someone at that company, I spoke to the owner about the issue and he was upset that his system caused problems for customers and was very sorry for the issue. He seems to be a nice person who just had a web site error.

Oh well, New Egg has them back in stock and I was able to make my order. I am at peace now :-)

There is two versions a regular version and a BF3 version which comes with a copy of BF3.
The only difference is a $20 markup to $469.99 vs the $449.99 price for the regular.

RussianJ 11-14-2011 07:08 PM

Rampage is 1.5x the price of other boards?

Seriously though, $170 more?

I would look at grabbing one come early next year but that's just insane...

I guess $20 is a good price for BF3, but most game bundles usually come with the hardware without markups. Especially $400+ hardware.

It does have a bit more to offer than other boards right now. I guess you just have to ask if it's worth the extra $170.

Right now, they are in Tri-Fire (since they are 6970 Lightning...) on my Maximus IV Extreme. smile.gif And they are watercooled with universal waterblocks. If you want to fit 4 with good temps, then simply use universal blocks with heatsinks. Working perfectly fine for me, with pretty low temps on cores, VRMs and memory chips.

I bought the Rampage IV to go Quad-Fire since I have 4 Lightnings at home. smile.gif

Here's a crappy shoot I took a while ago of my temporary set-up :

sockpirate 11-15-2011 08:08 AM

would those blocks work on 580 lightning Extremes?

Levesque 11-15-2011 10:28 AM

Yes. "Universal VGA waterblocks" = working on everything...

Here,s 3 Lightnings, AKA "Mammoth tanks". smile.gif

SLK320 11-15-2011 11:53 AM

Managed to get this board on release-day. Now I wait for I7-3930 cpu. In the meantime I have a question:

Should I use onboard raid or my LSI 9260-4i? I'm gonna run 4x120GB RAID0 Vertex 3 Max IOPS.

OverK1LL 11-15-2011 08:54 PM

Any word on waterblocks for this board? If you're getting a board like this, you have to overkill it with some blocks.

 

In my opinion, the heatsink and pipes are about as ugly as the R2Es were. Please tell me it's not just me...

EK waterblock for the Rampage IV should be ready in 2 weeks. That's what EK told me. smile.gif

I already have a nickel-plexi block on pre-order directly from EK.

Did you have to call it in, or is there a pre-order somewhere?

My reseller called them and ask for one in the first batch that will be made. And they did confirm it. smile.gif

OverK1LL 11-16-2011 11:16 AM

May I ask who your reseller is?

Both Rampage IV's are available for order from TigerDirect right now, the one with BF3 is in stock but were only a few left when I called earlier and the regular one is a pre-order.

NewEgg Business states 20+ in inventory for the BF3 Bundle.

 

I've ordered from Amazon, and TigerDirect. They both messed up my orders for the R4E. I'm ready to fire on the BF3 bundle at NewEgg and call it a day.

What kind of issue did you have with TigerDirect? My order for the BF3 bundle shipped out already that I placed earlier this afternoon.

Hellish 11-16-2011 07:47 PM

My order would go through and I'd get an order confirmation, but anytime I'd click on the order number on my account page, it would say the order didn't exsist. I called TD and they had no record of my order. So I tried it again around 6PM EST, and they same thing happened, so I said screw it. Bought one from NewEgg and it shipped in 30 minutes.

 

 

Now if I can just find some Dominator GT 2100/2400 in stock somewhere, I'd have a computer...

I am kind of suprised that ASUS will be releasing a GENE board for this.

http://www.techpowerup.com/155190/ASUS-Ready-with-Rampage-IV-Formula-Rampage-IV-Gene-in-the-Pipeline.html

I know they already have a Formula in the works. I posted it in the news section.

OverK1LL 11-17-2011 12:32 PM

Got mine! Posted my pics in Post 3.

 

Let's get that spreadsheet going!!


OverK1LL 11-18-2011 12:02 PM

I was wondering how a full cover waterblock was going to reach the components to the left (between LGA2011 and I/O stacks).

 

I took a look at the board and noticed, it's not cooling anything. It is just aiding in cooling of other components via the heatpipe...

Then I started looking at the other heatsinks. The one north of the LGA2011 doesn't even cover all the components:

And the heatsink to the south of the LGA2011 barely is cooling any components (not saying the ones they are cooling aren't vital)

 

Photo Nov 18, 1 52 03 PM.jpg

 

I kinda want to pop off the active heatsink and see what's going on under there...


RSHillshooter81 11-18-2011 12:58 PM

I got my stuff the day they came out. the new cpu overclocks like a dream. the motherboard in my opinion is the best one currently out. This however is my first ASUS board.

I run at 5000mhz and hover around 44-45C full load.

Although it doesn't mean much I cannot get my Windows Index Score > 7.8. My CPU scores 7.8 the same as my 990x ***?

Initial benchmarks.

3DMark 2011
PCMARK 7

Incase anyone wanted to see an atto benchmark.

610

Just got my Rampage IV. smile.gif

Long (and fun) week-end ahead. I have like 6L of waters in my loop, 30 feet of tubing, and 7 radiators. Ahhh. The fun of draining and refilling that loop. smile.gif

Jingiko 11-18-2011 04:10 PM

Overkill if you take off the heatsinks you'll notice that some of them dont even have thermal pads on them!

and the X79chip has some kind of foil on it, which is a first for me.

Jingiko 11-18-2011 04:56 PM

Now what would be the best memory to go with in regards to Corsair Dominators?

2sets of 16GB Dominator 1600MHz?
http://www.corsair.com/dominator-with-dhx-pro-connector-1-5v-16gb-dual-channel-ddr3-memory-kit-cmp16gx3m4x1866c9.html

or a single set of 32GB Dominator 1600MHz?

Or something entirely different but with a higher MHz?

Oh, so that explains the trouble I had then. I ordered the regular version of this on Tuesday but did not receive any invoice or notification of a fulfilled order. I e-mailed them this morning asking about it and was told that my order "did not go through and the order does not exist in our order data base". They cancelled my order as there was a temporary authorization pending on my credit card account for a purchase in the amount of $458.46. I was told that should go away within 24-48 hours. I immediately went over to NewEgg and ordered the ASUS Rampage IV Extreme X79 BF3 Edition for a total of $479.47 shipped with 4% cash back (3% FatWallet & 1% Chase Freedom). I will also be getting $300 cash back from my sign-up bonus which was fulfilled after spending $500 on my new Chase Freedom credit card.

Total cost of this build was a bit over $1,700 after using the parts I already owned from my current build. Check out my Sandy Bridge-E (X79) system on the Rigbuilder here. Should be receiving the motherboard by Wednesday if NewEgg doesn't delay in shipping my order. Just in time for the holiday weekend. thumb.gif

I wouldn't even use Corsair. I think a lot of people are using G.Skill Ripjaw Z or whatever it is.

I have an extra 32GB kit if interested.

I'm using two of these Mushkin Enhanced Redline 8GB kits for a total of 16GB DDR3 2133MHz CL9: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226199

I like Mushkin, I have always used Corsair until this build i just read overall quality and speed was better (cheaper) using g skill ripjaws Z
