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

>RAMPAGE IV

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.

 
>RAMPAGE IV

ROG RAMDisk

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.

>RAMPAGE IV

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

>RAMPAGE IV >RAMPAGE IV

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.

 
>RAMPAGE IV

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 eggsGreat Motherboard

Pros: Has everything you need to be a pro over-clocker. The game (Assassins Creed IV Black Flag) supposedly expired already, however, my promo card has an expiration date of March 1, 2015 and I just redeemed the game today 8/8/14. So many things to do and learn from this mother.

The black calculator looking device can be installed into the slot bay of your computer, the LCD screen is adjustable to face horizontally giving you a LCD looking display.

So many configuration, I gave up and just left it at the peripheral limit.

Cons: Too technical, you may feel overwhelm. I had an i7 4930K CPU with this motherboard however something happened and the CPU is no longer dependable because it constantly lock up my computer. Did a reinstall of everything, to my amazement I couldn't get pass the Windows 8 2nd phase of the installation where the software is gathering the necessary files to install Windows. I put in a new i7 3820K and lo' and behold, it installed everything flawlessly. Just RMA my i7 today, first time I've encounter a bad CPU.

Lots of plugs, adapters that the book is pretty vague about. Example is the EATX12V_1 and EATX12V_2, the first one is 4 pin and the second one is 8 pin. The power supply I have is the Corsair 850W PSU and it did not come with with a 4 pin. I did my research online and most people were saying to plug both of them in for the CPU power. However there are no plug I have available that will fit in the 4 pin. And trying to plug an 8 pin into it will be kind of hard considering how there are a few things in the way of it, unless you cut the 8 pin and made it 4 pin. Anyway, I just plugged in the 8 pin and left the 4 pin unplugged and my computer works flawlessly.

Other Thoughts: i7 4930K CPU

5 out of 5 eggsAWESOME

Pros: This thing is just awesome and takes performance to the top level!

Cons: Expensive!! This is a high priced board for people who have the money to throw at it.

Other Thoughts: This is not for the average person or the beginner! Look at the ASUS Sabertooth Z series if you are new of a beginner.

1 out of 5 eggsFinally RMAing this Motherboard

Pros: So far all I can say is that it's pretty to look at.
RMA procedure was fairly painless. Waiting for Cross ship instructions...

Cons: I did a one egg review after this motherboard started disabling system components, USB ports, NIC, and audio. Every time I attempted ANY overclocking at all system components stopped working. So I would do the research, troubleshoot, etc. no joy to be had from this motherboard. So I parked it till I had some time to deal with a complete bench test with various compatible parts. Once I took it apart the BIOS failed to recognize the SSDs or bootable USB stick. With a constant QCode of 34 after a full day of trying as many configurations of parts as possible this pretty thing is set to be RMAed. We will see how that goes.

5 out of 5 eggsRampage iv Black Edition

Pros: A trully high end motherboard, tons of features for diagnostic and premium components heck even the packaging is great. It is expensive but you get what you paid for, I've been a user of ASRock motherboards and I did owned yhe 990Fx extreme 9 with a AMD cpu and it was starting to give me some troubles which I choose to change and go for a intel mobo. Alas I wasn't dissapointed the Rampage iv Black Edition is excelent even if Im running it with a i7 4820K cpu, I do a lot of gaming and video rendering plus few more things and everything runs fast and smooth, the OC pannel is nice to have even in "normal" mode looks great in front of the case and it shows that you care for top of the line hardware.

Cons: The only cons I can think of is that first the block on top of the I/O connectors has some weight to it (but it looks aeesome) the OC pannel has a short cable if you have a big case, if you use the OC pannel you will loose one 2.0 usb on board connector(no big deal)

2 out of 5 eggsMixed review

Pros: When it runs, it runs great. Currently having random restart issues since I built this system around this motherboard.

So I am not quite sold.

Cons: The wires for power/reset/hd led and such are too close to the last pci-e slot, so close that a video card will ride right over the top of them.

Other Thoughts: Warranty service seems good, I called and explained how I have replaced every component and what I have done and they are giving me advanced warranty service for minimal downtime.

Pros: Fast. Easy to install. Runs cool

Not overclocking (saving that for when technology leaves me in the dust, again)

Cons: The last two adjustable fan sockets need temperature sensors that are not available and on idscription of what to use (thermocouple, thermistor, etc)

Other Thoughts: ASUS Rampage IV AC4; ASUS GeForce GTX760

1 out of 5 eggsASUS Rampage IV (Black Edition)

Pros: I've heard great things about this motherboard (ASUS Rampage IV Extreme (Black Edition), but I have yet to have the luxury of trying this motherboard because the "Brand New" one that I received from Newegg was damaged on arrival -- CPU Socket damage (bent CPU pins | non-repairable).

I sent the item back explaining that the item was damaged / not working and Newegg completely ignored my claim -- I know, ridiculous! You would think if the item that I received was damaged -- Newegg would gladly replace it for their customers ... I guess not?

So I am having to go through ASUS directly and I'm having the MOST difficult time. I paid nearly $500 for this motherboard -- received a damaged product and now I'm having to send multiple email(s) and call multiple time(s) just to get this issue resolved! Terrible customer service on both Newegg & ASUS's part.

Note: I have yet to receive a replacement / refund or a resolution to this issue (06/22/2014) -- one (1) month post purchase!

Cons: I have not had the luxury of using my "Brand New" motherboard yet...

5 out of 5 eggsYou want it.

Pros: So DOPE! You know you want it, buy one.

If you're here looking at $500 mobo's you've already made up your mind.

5 eggs is the final answer, so put this thing in your shopping cart now.

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: Plenty of reviews and forums out there to go spend a few days absorbing all the awesome this board is. no way to convey in short new egg reviews.

2 out of 5 eggsAsus no more

Pros: Is there any Pro if they don't work right?

Cons: Software bad, so therefore you don't get the full benefit of the board. Parts fall off. Support and service is bad

Other Thoughts: I was an avid fan of this company, I have bought five of their boards in the last two years, only one still works right. I buy top of the line from this company and they fail, service is bad, I have been building computers since the late 90s. I requested an RMA on them and never got a response. So now I'm going to another company and I have ordered the $600 motherboard, maybe it will be a good one

1 out of 5 eggsLow level of service and integrity!

Pros: Great board with great features.

Cons: After speaking with ASUS I returned the board for a replacement and was astonished to find out that the replacement board was the same exact one I sent in. I called Newegg and they claimed it was damaged. I opened the package to find that the socket pins were bent to hell. Fortunately I took pictures of the board before I sent it in and the rep I spoke to gave me his email to send the proof. The email he gave me was wrong and none of my emails were delivered. The rep offered to "help me by covering return shipment to manufacturer but I have to pay for repairs!.

Other Thoughts: I bought the board because of it's built in features like Bluetooth and wireless but the one I received was defective per ASUS, some components were not functioning. I was advised to return the board so I did. The RMA was approved and the turnaround time was a couple of weeks due to memorial weekend which is expected.

The problem is I sent the board in one condition and it was sent back to me damaged and Newegg is not doing anything about it, and are claiming it was sent that way. If this is not resolved I will most certainly not recommend Newegg to anyone I know, and advise any Newegg customer to make sure you take pictures before you send any RMA, because you don't know when a Newegg employee "inspects" the item, damages it and pins it on you!

I will repost an update later this week.
