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 eggsGreat motherboard

Pros: Great motherboard. It's been stable from the first boot. Lots of great features. Good layout although it would be nice if usb 3.0 was at a right angle for better cable management. Easy to use bios. Audio sounds much better compared to my old on board solution. Like the pcb moat area not sure if it really helps eliminate interference but looks pretty cool.

Cons: Only issue I have had was with the game first 2 software. Speeds were terrible avg 50kbps. Fiddled with that program for days before saying to hell with it. Removed it from pc completely and speeds went back to normal about15mbps. Cool idea but just doesn't seem to work well for me. Won't dock an egg since it's optional software

Other Thoughts: Finally decided to upgrade from my old evga 780i mobo running a q6600@3.2 with 4gb of ram. To this mobo paired with 16gb of g.skill ripjaws z and a 4820k@4.5. The change was night and day. Runs like a champ and looks good doing it! Got a pretty good deal too seeing as it was $500 a few days before I ordered. But with deals and a gift card I had got it for $300. Woot! Last build held up well fir being 8yrs old. Hopefully this one will do the same.

1 out of 5 eggsAwful wireless connection

Pros: Other than the wireless issues the board works fine.

Cons: Spent a week trying to configure the wireless connection after I installed this mobo. When I installed the board I could not get a wireless signal from my wireless router. I had no wireless issues with my old mobo and tested my wireless router on other computers and it was fine. I called Asus and was told to connect the wi-fi antenna that was provided with the Asus mobo. It seems this was the only way to get a wireless signal so I had to ditch my reliable wireless router and use the one provided by Asus. I then connected my tablet and phone to the network. The signal was strong however it would take 5 minutes to download webpages to my tablet and phone. When I turn off the computer the wireless connection gets lost, so it only works when the computer is on and when I restart the computer I have to reestablish the connection to all the devices (tablet, tv, phone, etc.). This worked for two days then the connection was just lost so now I have no wireless. I tried everything but nothing works (downloaded Asus suite, updated drivers, switched routers, etc.). My 5 year old router and mobo was great at connecting wirelessly with no trouble and stayed on after the computer was turned off yet this fancy Asus board cant even provide a fast wireless connection and turns off when computer is off so if you want to read your tablet upstairs the computer has to be on downstairs and that’s if its working. And now the wireless signal just stopped working so now I have no wireless signal. Stay away from this board if you want a fast reliable continuous wireless connection or want to use another wireless router.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Motherboard Build

Pros: I couldn't ask for anything more out of this motherboard. It's automated system just blows me away. Don't want it automated? Great! It's got dozens and dozens of options to customize this motherboard the way you want it.

Cons: None.

3 out of 5 eggsdisappointed, not worth it

Pros: easy to overclocking

Cons: Expensive
Bios software is confusing.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for $499 at after I've had the Asus X79 delux over 6 months only , hoping this board will impress me but so far the only thing that really impressed me is how much it cost.
I've used the 4 way opitimization to try to OC but after that, the board is unstable and I had to go back to default setting.
the MB is not even working right when I put it to sleep. After sleep time, the computer can't even boot up right and I have to cold boot it, to turn it on , then it goes back to the state where I put it to sleep ( ???)
the OC panel is almost useless.
Anyway, very disappointed with this board.
P/S: just so upset to find out that newegg is selling this board for $ 389 now. I should have waited .
Well, lesson learned.

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
