We've rethought and refined every aspect of Rampage VI Extreme Omega to provide the solid foundation needed to create an extreme gaming system that delivers the highest performance.
Power Design That Bucks The Trends
The monstrous compute power of high core count (HCC) processors necessitates a power circuit that rapidly responds to massive current swings. And those demands increase exponentially when the CPU is overclocked. Featuring an array of 16 strategically paired power stages, the Omega's VRM is geared for any workload and all operating conditions.
- Dual 8-Pin Procool Power Connectors -Two ProCool connectors ensure a snug and reliable connection to the EPS 12V power lines.
- Powerstage® Mosfets - The Omega VRM is comprised of 16 IR3555 PowIRstages, each rated to handle 60 amps
- Microfine Alloy Chokes - Each PowIRstage is accompanied by a high-permeability alloy-core choke rated to handle 45 amps.
- 10K Japanese Made Black Mettalic Capacitors - Input and output filtering is provided by solid-polymer capacitors rated to last thousands of hours at high operating temperatures
Overclocked multi-core processors place incredible loads on the VRM when transitioning between load states. However, conventional motherboard design practices place primary focus on component specs without implementing circuit topologies that provide optimal transient response. The Omega bucks industry trends by utilising teamed PowIRstages to double the burst current of each phase and rapidly respond to load changes.
HCC processors crunching multi-threaded compute workloads can demand colossal memory space and bandwidth. The Omega features choice Optimem II enhancements to maximize signal integrity and drive high-density memory configurations to speeds previously reserved for low-capacity setups.
Effective cooling is extremely important for up to 18-core processing beasts, even at stock speeds. That's why ROG Rampage VI Extreme Omega is fully armed to provide the best foundation for extreme PC systems, enabling higher performance at lower temperatures.
- Active Heatsink - Fans located within the heatsink kick on after 60°C and allow the Rampage VI Extreme Omega to handle sustained power draw of over 500W.
- Aluminium I/O Cover - The aluminum I/O cover is connected to the primary heatsink via an embedded heatpipe, increasing mass and surface area.
- Aluminium Heatsink Cover - The cover is crafted from pure aluminum to efficiently cool the two onboard M.2 drives.
- Dimm.2 Heatsinks -The ROG DIMM.2 module now passively cools M.2 drives with metal heatsinks that also keeps your build looking clean.
- Dual Backplates - Dual backplates add rigidity and additional functionality to the oversized board. One adds additional mass to siphon heat from the VRM, while the other adds additional RGB lighting effects.
- PCH Heatsink - The PCH heatsink blends seamlessly with the Aluminum Heatsink cover and prominently features the ROG logo.
Cooler By Design
Rampage VI Extreme Omega features the most comprehensive cooling options ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS.
- Multiple temperature sources - Each header can be set to monitor and react to three user-configurable thermal sensors for workload-based cooling. And all settings can be easily managed by Fan Xpert 4 or UEFI.
- 4-pin PWM/DC fan - Every onboard header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.
- Heatsink Fan - A dedicated header for onboard heatsink fan.
- Bundled Fan Extension Card II - Includes six additional DC or PWM fan headers, plus three thermal-probe headers.
- Water pump+ - A dedicated header that can supply over 3A to high-performance PWM or DC water pumps.
- Water in/out - Enables monitoring of temperatures at the input/output of any component.
- Water flow - Enables constant monitoring of flow rate of the entire loop.
- Water-block header - A special connector that lets water blocks designed for the ROG Rampage VI Extreme Omega provide flow, temperature and leakage data.
ROG Water Cooling Zone
ROG Water-Cooling Zone's dual water-temperature headers and flow-rate header feed information straight into the AI Suite utility, so you can keep track of coolant temperatures, and the flow rate of the entire loop.
- W_Flow Tachometer - Enables constant monitoring of flow rate of the entire loop.
- W_In/Out Sensor - Enables monitoring of temperatures at the input/output of any component.
Fan Extension Card II
ROG Rampage VI Extreme Omega includes our new Fan Extension Card II, which adds six headers that are controllable via FanXpert 4. The card has three temperature-sensor headers to complement the one available onboard and, more importantly, it comes with three thermistors that you can affix to different components. In addition to supplying extra headers for cooling, it has three primed for RGB LED strips.
Rampage VI Extreme Omega is packed with intuitive and flexible tools that let you customize every aspect of your system to deliver the performance and features you want. Take advantage of 5-Way Optimization for intelligent, automatic overclocking or enjoy full manual control via comprehensive UEFI BIOS settings.
Performance Level Up
AI Suite 3's dashboard-style control panel lets you fine-tune almost every aspect of your Rampage VI Extreme Omega system. Get the best balance between performance, cooling, stability, and efficiency via one simple and intuitive interface.
The TurboV Processing Unit (TPU) is an intelligent onboard micro-controller that provides an array of system-tuning features, including the ability to fine-tune voltages, monitor system stats and adjust overclocking parameters.
All-around energy efficiency
With the Energy Processing Unit (EPU) you'll enjoy system-wide power savings. The EPU automatically optimizes power consumption and maximizes savings with Away mode — a smart setting that creates an extreme energy-saving scenario by shutting down unused I/O controllers.
Flexible cooling controls for air or liquid
Enjoy comprehensive control over fans, water pumps and all-in-one (AIO) coolers, via either Fan Expert 4 or our award-winning UEFI. Whether you're cooling with air or water, Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. There's also an Extreme Quiet mode, which reduces all fan speeds to below the default minimum — keeping your system whisper-quiet when performing light tasks.
Precise digital power control
The Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) delivers real-time control over voltage droop, switching frequency and power-efficiency settings, allowing you to fine-tune CPU voltage regulation for ultimate stability and performance.
Turbo Core App
Intel's processors feature per-core tuning, and the ASUS Turbo app makes use of this feature by letting you assign applications to specific processor cores, prioritizing computing power where it's needed most.
Every aspect of Omega is designed to enhance your gaming and creative experience. The Intel 10Gbps Ethernet controller opens the door to massive files transfers and ultralow latency, while four M.2 slots offer fast load times and flexible storage expansion.
