Continuing ROG’s legendary overclocking reputation, ASUS is glad to launch the first X79-based ROG motherboard - the RAMPAGE IV EXTREME. It aims to fulfill PC enthusiasts’ needs towards greater performance. The R4E motherboard supports the latest LGA 2011 socket for 2nd Gen Intel® Core i7 and Extreme Edition Processors, and it newly launches some revolutionary overclocking features. With record breaking excellence, it’s time to rock the overclocking world again!
RAMPAGE IV EXTREME is presented with a bunch of hardware upgrades baring the latest utilities designed to unleash the full OC potential and push systems to their limit. The R4E features Extreme Engine Digi+ II offering optimum power efficiency with premium components and intelligent digital design. Built-in finest Japan-made Black Metallic Capacitors offer +20% low temperature endurance and 5X longer lifetime usage.
Most notable is the supplied OC Key which provides an on-screen graphical overlay without the need for extra software on your monitor, allowing you to tweak and monitor your system’s settings in real-time. The Subzero Sense even offers as precise subzero degree measurement as costly thermometers, saving users money while enjoying the same benefits. For PC enthusiasts, there is one thing they don’t wanna miss - the accurate and effortless VGA overvolting way. No need to solder and blindly tweak the tiny resistors, the VGA Hotwire makes VGA overvolting quick and easy via interface such as OC Key, TurboV EVO, and UEFI BIOS. Last but not the least, don’t rush to junk your expensive LGA1366 cooler. With X-Socket, switch out the LGA2011 pad for a 1366 one and you can get more life out of your previous CPU cooler!
With a gorgeous design, great performance and revolutionary features, overclockers will no doubt lust after the RAMPAGE IV EXTREME.
