Rampage IV Black Edition

Following in the legacy forged by the Rampage 111 Black Edition, the R4BE - as it is known by ROG fans - is the perfect marriage of gaming and overlocking. Sacrificing nothing to appease both crowds, the Rampage IV Black Edition delivers the ultimate X79 experience.

The Gamer


SupremeFX Black

Pioneered on ROG, SupremeFX has been the standard by which all other audio solutions are compared. Adding an op-amp, DAC, and headphone amp to an already powerful combination of hardware, lets SupremeFX Shielding and ELNA premium audio capacitors take audio performance beyond the limits of the ALC 1150 codec. Meanwhile, a Cirrus Logic CS4398 DAC joins a TPA6120A2 headphone amp to deliver 120dB SNR and 600 load impedance to ensure powerful, immersive sound when gaming on headphones. Lastly, ROG Sonic Radar software helps FPS gamers localize sounds via on-screen radar.



Game faster from start to finish by combining ROG hardware and software. ROG RAMDisk software makes the most of the DIMM design on the Rampage IV Black Edition by creating lightning-fast virtual drives for temporary storage. RAMDisk can also be used for partial caching to automatically store large, slow-loading files like maps into memory.


Intel Gb LAN with GameFirst

The latest Intel 1217 Gb LAN minimizes CPU overhead under high bandwidth utilization, which combined with ROG GameFirst ensures the lowest ping times. For wireless scenarios, the included mPCle Combo combines 802.11ac Wi-Fi/Bluetooth 4.0 and M.2/NGFF slot in one.

The Overclocker


Premium Overclocking Components, Including OC Panel

BlackWing Choke, 90% efficient NexFET MOSFETs and 10K Black Metallic Capacitors lay the groundwork for Extreme Engine Digi+ to provide the highest, most stable overclocking. The bundled OC Panel lets you make the most of these superior components, with two different modes. In Normal Mode, OC Panel installs into an available 5 ¼in. drive bay and displays CPU temperature, ratios, BCLK and fan RPM. Switching to Extreme Mode and utilizing the OC Panel as a handheld device unlocks its enthusiast overclocking functionality. Connectors for Subzero Sense, VGA SMB and VGA hotwire are available directly on the OC Panel, as well as remote power and reset buttons.


New UEFI with SSD Secure Erase

The new black-themed Rampage IV Black Edition UEFI provides significant upgrades to both EZ and Advanced modes, as well as SSD Secure Erase to completely wipe repurposed drives and restore factory write speeds. For faster setup, EZ mode now includes date/time, fan profiles and XMP memory profiles. In Advanced Mode, both individual settings as well as submenus can now quickly be accessed by placing them into the My Favorites tab or the Shortcuts menu. Lastly, changes to the UEFI can easily be tracked by looking in the Last Modified Log or by leaving notes using the new Quick Note function.

5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful work of art!

Pros: As long as you know what you're doing this motherboard is a beautiful work of art, i love it and i thank asus for making it.

Cons: It's complicated so if you're just going for a cool computer and don't really know what you're doing and don't want to put in the time to figure it out, you probably won't have a great experience.

1 out of 5 eggsASUS has gone downhill

Pros: nothing

Cons: For over 10 years i have counted on ASUS in all my desktop builds/laptops. The last 2 Asus motherboards i've purchased have resulted very problematic, this one is no different. Swapped out every piece of hardware with new and working replacements besides the motherboard by grabbing from other builds (2xPSU,2xCPU, 2xRAM, 2xSSDs 4x different GPUS!! various keyboards and mouse) and reformatted over 3 times. The keyboard randomly loses power, at this point computer cant even log into windows for over 5 minutes. Files randomly become corrupt. this has been a complete nightmare. ive lost about 4 months of work deciphering (running every single test in the book) which component was faulty in all this and i have no doubt in my mind that the motherboard is indeed the culprit.

Other Thoughts: I dont even know if I should RMA this motherboard after reading all the negative experiences with Asus support. My previous Asus RMA experiences were pretty bad too. For a laptop return I wrote a long plea to consider the fact that I have long trusted in this company for personal and business builds had me pay to ship my stuff and did nothing to fix faulty hardware. If my credentials in computer knowledge come into question for any reason, I work at worldwide television network as a head technology correspondent. The lack of consideration this company has shown to its longtime customers is clearly evident through these reviews here.

1 out of 5 eggsJust bec you spend $$$ you still get treated like poop from ASUS

Pros: Let me start that I am giving this one star because of Asus's HORRIBLE RMA department.

Newegg shipment was awesome as per the usual

Cons: The board I got lasted about 4 months before I started to notice problems with the RAM and CPU talking to each other. Asus support told me I need to confirm it was the board by testing a known good CPU, RAM, and GPU's before they would admit that the problem was with the board. I personally am a Network Engineer and have been building high-end systems for the past 12 years as a hobby so I am no dummy I have a very advanced understanding of troubleshooting and before I was a Network Engineer I started as a Repair Technician. It is absurd that I had to go through physically replacing every other part in my system to confirm that the board was the problem. Apparently testing the CPU, GPU’s and RAM in my buddy’s computer is not good enough….

Well after going through hell and tying up $490 bucks on my credit card and waiting two weeks to get notice they had a replacement in stock. Asus shipped my RMA replacement. Which I had to pay for faster shipping... Oh and I had to pay for shipping back to Asus’s Depo.
So now the fun begins………
I don’t know why I was surprised that I got a “refurbished” board wrapped in hand torn getto wrapped bubble wrap. But low and behold the board wouldn’t even POST on the 1st BIOS chip.... then once I got it to POST on the 2nd BIOS I find out that the Intel X79 Chipset SATA controller is broken and would constantly throw S.M.A.R.T errors.... then after 1 day is outright died.... Windows even showed an “This device cannot start. (Code 10) An I/O adapter hardware error has occurred” and would no longer write to any disk in any mode; IDE, ACHI, or RAID.
The problems don’t stop there. The ASmedia USB 3.0 was completely broken. It would constantly connect and disconnect any device connected to it every 1 second.
After that you would think there would be no more problems but you would be wrong.
After 2 days trying to get the computer to load windows on Default settings and not crash within 5 min of being in Windows I find out that the Voltage regulation on the board is broken.... I had to down-clock the CPU and manually assign a voltage of exactly 1.3 VCORE to get the computer to stay stable at 1.5GHZ.
Oh and don’t think the problems end there. After calling Asus support 2 days in a row both rep's said that there supervisors where either in a meeting or on another call and that I would receive a call back within 2 hours. Needless to say I never received a call back either day. After calling the 3rd time I got a supervisor after an hour on hold (spent 2 hours on hold the other 2 calls) the supervisor says there are no notes attached to my RMA and so he cannot escalate because there is no proof I called........ Then he says they cannot advance replacement another board to me until I take the board completely out of my system and take pictures of it…… Mind you I am writing this review with the board in question. So then he explains he cannot guarantee me a new board would be sent but that he could take a list of what conf

Other Thoughts: Any who this will be the LAST Asus product I will ever buy or recommend to any colleagues or friends.
For a top of the line highest priced Mobo product ASUS sells I could not believe how horrible I was treated and the lack of support. Especially after having the board not even a year.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat Mobo

Pros: Great Board with lots of features, flexibility and more.

Cons: Poor Customer Service. I tried to register the Mobo but kept getting prompted that the Mobo has already been registered. Bought this board brand new in a box.

Still waiting on a reply from ASUS

Pros: Looks great

Cons: I received the board and it would not let me keep my 2 ASUS GTX 770s in pcie 3.0 I also have a asrock x79 extreme 11. So I used that to test my chip, video cards, and ram. Every thing checked out fine so, Newegg was cool about it and sent out a new board. I put the components together and tan a few test nothing would go above stock speed totally disappointed. I take the chip put 4 bent pins I was in shock lol I did everything correct so I called Newegg no love on bent pins, I just not the bill from asus 130 dollars to repair a 500 dollar board for 4 pins they just lost a customer for life. I had a bent pin issue with ASROCK 50 dollar flat any repair pins are covered by the warranty so buyer beware asides warrant is horrible and the board doesn't touch my ASROCK in any wha so ever do looking forward at the X99 platform I know what company I won't buy from, and I hope you don't either. Asus motherboards, warranty, and lack of respect for a dedicated customer is truly disheartening.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfection

Pros: Arrived perfect, installed perfect, runs perfect.

This thing is perfect. And it better be for the money I spent on it.

So many options with this thing, it's crazy.
Also, the built-in OC options work amazingly. Without any manual changes, OC'd my 4770K from 3.6GHz to 4.5GHz. Could probably get more out of it, but why?

Cons: None. At. All.
