Product Overview

The most powerful X79 motherboard has arrived! The Rampage IV Extreme Intel X79-based motherboard features tons of revolutionary overclocking features for enthusiasts to set new world records. This E-ATX motherboard supports the latest Socket LGA2011 2nd Generation Intel Core i7 Processors with ASUS’s new Extreme Engine Digi+ II, allowing you to achieve ultimate performance with adjustable CPU and memory power management frequencies. Support for up to 4-channel, 64GB of system memory with an 8-DIMM design maximizes the memory bandwidth to match the amazing CPU processing capability. 4-way SLI and CrossFireX support in combination with the PCIe 3.0 capabilities boosts the graphics performance to a new level.

OC Key is an ROG-designed device that connects to the DVI port of any graphics card to display performance and overclocking info on the screen independent of system resources. While overclocking in LN2 mode, Subzero Sense detects cooling system temperatures as low as -193?C so you can find out how cold your board is. ROG Extreme Engine Digi+ II and specially sourced high-grade capacitors ensure long lasting and high-endurance power delivery demanded by gamers and competitive overclockers. Plus, X-Socket saves more life out of your LGA1366 CPU coolers. ROG users also appreciate the exclusive features well-suited to overclocking such as VGA Hotwire, ROG Connect, GPU.DIMM Post, ROG iDirect, and more.

PCIe 3.0 Ready
The latest PCI Express bus standard delivers imporved encoding for twice the performance of current PCIe 2.0. Total bandwidth for a x16 link reaches a maximum of 32GB/s, double the 16GB/s of PCIe 2.0 (in x16 mode). PCIe 3.0 provides users unprecedented data speeds combined with the convenience and seamless transition offered by complete backward compatibility with PCIe1.0 and PCIe 2.0 devices. It is a must-have feature PC users aiming to improve and optimize graphics performance, as well as have the latest, most future-proof technology.

Extreme Engine Digi+ II
The Extreme Engine Digi+ II has been upgraded and equipped with the finest Japan-made 10K Black metallic capacitors, while the digital VRM design allows you to achieve ultimate performance with adjustable CPU and memory power management frequencies. Precise adjustments create greater efficiency, stability, five times longer lifespan than solid capacitors* and performance for total system control. (*At operating temperature of 105°C).

Monitor the status of your system in real-time with OSD Monitor while tweak the parameters with OSD TweakIt, both come with a convenient graphical overlay displayed right on screen. OSD Monitor allows you to view POST codes in real-time, complete hardware status and even the readout from VGA Hotwire and Subzero Sense, all at a pure hardware level. And, OSD TweakIt provides you with a set of critical and hardware-driven functions so you can tweak your system on-the-fly.

VGA Hotwire
Love to overvolt but got mad trimming the tiny variable resistors? With the VGA Hotwire feature, plug the two-wire cable onboard and solder two wires on the VGA's voltage regulator and accurately adjust the voltage, taking your system to the next level while avoiding some risks.

Subzero Sense
Love overclocking in LN2 mode, but have trouble finding out just how cold your board is? Worry no more, with Subzero Sense you can read the system’s temperature even in its coldest subzero degrees temperature.

Don't junk that expensive LGA1366 heatsink! With X-Socket, switch out the LGA2011 pad for a 1366 one and get more life out of your previous CPU cooler.
