The ASUS Rampage range of motherboard have been extremely popular among enthusiasts thanks to the fantastic looks of the mainboards. The Rampage range of motherboards were one of the first motherboard ranges to implement a colour scheme which has evolved over the years from red white and blue to the red and black theme we see today. This colour scheme is immidiatley identifiable as being part of the ROG (Republic Of Gamers) which incorporates not only motherboards but graphics cards, notebooks and a peripheral range. Beauty of course is only skin deep and only when you get past the skin and bones of the rampage range do you come to realise just what is meant by the analogy 'choice of champions' because the Rampage range not only look the business but they have overclocking prowess to match.



The Rampage range of motherboards, specifically the 'Extreme' variants have proven very popular with overclocking gurus breaking world record after world record thanks to the user friendly yet very expansive BIOS the ASUS boards use. It should also go without saying that being a 'Gamers' motherboard, the Rampage motherboards also offer compatabality for multiple graphics cards configurations regardless of whether your preference is AMD or NVIDIA.

So then, great looking, extremely configurable and technologically advanced all wrapped up in a class leading package. It should certainly be a contender for the top spot among our X79 motherboard range we have reviewed thus far. As is always the case though, if you want the best then you usually have to pay the price and at just short of 400, the ASUS Rampage IV Extreme is anything but a budget motherboard. You do however get quite a lot for the money as we will see over the next few pages. Whether that will be enough to tempt you damage the bank balance only you can decide so sit back and have a read through the next few pages before making that decision as we take you through what is one of the finest motherboards to grace the halls of Vortez...
