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 eggsI downgraded to x79 from the awful x99 launch.

Pros: I originally was upgrading from the z87 chipset to the x99 platform. looking to quadfire my 295x2... pci lanes were a must.

I tried 4 different motherboards from 4 different brands. issues with bios, memory voltage issues, overclocking or horrible stability. x99 is a joke..

I decided to switch to x79... I know it works and runs effectively. This is the best X79 you can buy. it has every feature you'd want and runs seemless. booted into the windows loader first hit of the switch. fantastic board.

you will not be disappointed....

Cons: Only 2x sata 3 connections

4 out of 5 eggsReally cool

Pros: - Ridiculously easy to set up. Everything is labeled and the manual is extremely detailed.
- Looks fantastic in a windowed case. Dark PCB and LED lights, a ROG logo, and a boot readout.
- UEFI works well, and aside from a brief issue getting my mouse and keyboard to work on boot, has given me no issues.
- SPACE! The whole reason I decided to build my own system again was my extraterrestrial brand desktop would not let me fit SLI graphics and a soundcard at the same time. (Which is %$#^ for a gaming desktop.)
- RAM - wow, you can fit so many RAM sticks on here.

Cons: - So expensive, and there aren't a lot of LGA 2011 boards left to choose from if you want a decent feature set.
- Stuff you probably don't need stuffed in to make it more expensive. An overclocking remote/LCD screen. What do I do with this? Expensive on-board audio - already have a soundcard I love.

Other Thoughts: I've had it running 2 weeks + with no issues. (Well, except you have to plug the mouse and keyboard into the right USB slots or they won;t work at boot, which is annoying.) I have 2 super expensive Klevv RAM sticks running alongside my OEM extraterrestrial ram - which has entirely different specs - and it works fine. (A testament to the board and the Klevv RAM)

I would have picked up a newer board with a more modern socket, but my Intel i7-45930K from my extraterrestrial brand PC still kicks &^%$, so I didn't see any need to spend money on a processor that wasn't any better just to get a newer board. I've always had good luck with Asus, so I felt like sticking with them. (2 gaming laptops, Android tablets, a phone, and a ton of video cards, not to mention prior motherboards.)

1 out of 5 eggsDOA TWICE

Pros: None

Cons: Do not go with asus on motherboards ever they have terrible customer service they send you one dead board then required to get a second one they hold onto your money until you send back yours but then when you get the second one back and it's also dead on arrival they start blaming you saying I put the board in wrong and damaged it, they won't even give me a new one cause i already used one RMA, don't ever use asus for motherboards ever

4 out of 5 eggsgood board, never got my rebate

Pros: Great board for gamers. Awesome for OC.

Cons: Rebate is bull, I did everything got it approved still no rebate been more then 6 weeks. Not a con just anoid with asus cheap a$s! Lol one con is that that the board won't boot in rare moments with an external hdd connected to it.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent MB

Pros: Had a problem with MB when I first purchased it, called ASUS, no problem RMA it, about 3 weeks got back perfect ever since. Overclocked to 5.1 with I7-4930K water-cooled but stopped there, usually run at 4.5. To many great things with the board to mention.

Cons: Board started but then stopped, ASUS support great, fixed no problem. Can not find anything bad to say about board or ASUS support.

Other Thoughts: My experience with ASUS support has been great, RMA the board, yes paid for shipping there but they paid back for 2 day delivery. Their support has been great, when first called they wanted me to check out everything but I told them I didn't have any way to check out everything because I only have the one computer I was building except for laptop, no problem, got RMA number asap. Great support, just play nice.

5 out of 5 eggsExpensive.

Pros: Accomplished my goal of 6 Vertex 3 SSD's in Raid 5.

Took a I7 3930 CPU without too much trouble.

Running 4 MSI GTX 680 video cards.

Running Gskill Trident 8 modules of 8 gigs for 64 gigabyte in total.

Has the nifty little doodad that I stuck in the drive bay to determine CPU temperatures, so far it is holding at 32C to 34C for internetting.

The back plate with the foamy silver insulation is a nice touch.

Cons: Now for the bad.

I don't think I will ever spend 500 dollars for a board like this again. I got it on sale at 425 with two day shipping paid. But I felt very badly for the price.

It seemed to be the last good DDR3 RAM x79 Board for sale on socket 2011. I realize that the Retail world is forcing everyone into DDR4, X99 and beynd.

Reboots too much over the smallest stuff. Makes me wonder if I actually had issues over the RAM (And did until I discovered how they go in.

There is no room on bottom of the DIMM Clips above the video card whatsoever for a Cruicial Ballistix RAM Cooler. I will tinger with them and see if I can put them on anyway, without the lower brackets. (This should be interesting)

The video cards, are way too close together.

The clips that hold the video cards are very bad words and thoughts, I already destroyed one in the top PCI three slot, but have enough screws to hold the card that I should not really care.

The bottom card will cover the wiring so be sure you got all of that taken care of before you install it.

Reboots too much, makes you wonder what the hell it has to do in order to be stable. See other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: I can get my 3930 CPU to 4.7 in this thing. But am going to have to fight for it. It reboots too much.

Memory refuses to be stable at 2400. I see that my ram is on the approved list. So I will see about overclocking them to 2800 or beyond. We will see what we can get out of that. They remind me of the Thomas the Train, trouble some trucks, always raising trouble.

When I buy boards again in the future it is going to be the bigger boards You think the cheapstakes in ASUS could at least make this board an inch bigger into the Extended ATX and give the video cards breathing room.

I have a MSI Z77 M Power burn up on me a month ago, and I had a DOA MSI Big Bang 2 that I ordered to replace it, that was a total bust.

So, here I am back with ASUS again after a ten year break.

5 out of 5 eggsBest X-79 mobo. PERIOD

Pros: Familiar layout if your're coming from the regular Rampage IV. Support for 3 way and even 4 way SLI configs. Robust overclocking features. Has an effective voltage fluctuation protection feature. Black motif blends well with any color combination. Lots of fan headers.. UEFI BIOS is very easy to navigate. Arrived well packaged with tons of cables and nifty stuffs. I'm able to OC my Intel Core i7 3930K to a stable 4.8ghz 24/7 with 1.415V. No hiccups or issues. All my 3 Titans are heavily OC'd under water and this board manages well.

Cons: No support for M.2 standard for modern SSDs (I know I know, M.2 came out recently but so did this board, 4th quarter of 2013). The built in backplate for the CPU cooler is OK if you're using custom liquid cooler and air coolers. BUT if you're using AIO coolers like the H100i, and other pre-filled systems, you'll have to disassemble the backplate which increases risk of damage to the board. On board soundcard sounds the same as the regular Rampage 4. (Supposedly upgraded!)

Other Thoughts: X-79 may have been superceeded by the newer X99 but for gaming and multi GPU platform, X-79 is still very much competitive. Plus, for a triple SLI card set up like mine, I'm able to run my Titans @ X16, X8, X16 PCI-e speeds. Versus the X99's X16, X8, X8 config. So for triple SLIer's out there, stay with X79. Just get the newer Titan X.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: None

Cons: The motherboard powered on, however i could not start the motherboard. I've read the manual from front to back just in case i missed something, but it still could not start. I thought it could be some kind of surge protection, then i unplug everything except the 24 pin that was connected to the board itself.

Other Thoughts: I like asus products, but this is the first time that i went through this kind of situation from a motherboard that i though it was the best. I've tried to call support but it seems that they don't even know the problem is.

3 out of 5 eggsgreat product worthless warranty

Pros: asus makes quality products

Cons: warranty is worthless

Other Thoughts: first board showed up with a "wiggly" pci-e slot.. took it to best buy for a readout so i would have documentation.. i purchased a replacement right away because it was for a client.. i was in the process of moving and knew it had a 3 year warranty so getting a refund/replacement wasnt a top priority.. i store a lot of computer parts and often buy extra parts when the options are available and frequently build a computer from these parts and sell it online.. when i contacted asus customer support i was told the documentation isnt sufficent evidence and my warranty wont cover the motherboard because i didnt take action within 14 days and i would have to pay a fee of $120 to repair the "wiggly" pci-e slot.. guess it is my fault for not reading the fine print located in the users manual that i never even took out of the box and for thinking a 3 year warranty actually meant 3 year warranty.. the board was never installed in a case.. none of the other components were even unwrapped.. i noticed the slot when unpacking it and put it right back in the box and took it straight to best buy(only licensed tech in the area.. with any claim they would require a licensed tech) for a readout on the slot in question.. the report came back as non functional and non repairable by them and it was suggested to rma the board as a defect.. i have built hundreds of computers over the years and have never came across a "wiggly" pci slot.. there is no physical evidence that would indicate it was damaged in any way so the only thought that comes to mind is the machine ran out of solder? regardless i would classify this as a "manufacturer defect" and not a "physical defect" which is what they are calling it and thus not covered by the warranty.. i asked what the warranty does cover and was told manufacturer defects.. when i asked them what manufacturer defects are i was told "capacitors and chips".. so the moral of the story is read the fine print on the warranty because even great companies like Asus will try to weasel out of a repair bill.. and if you find a problem with a product handle it immediately because it could cost you $500 like it did me
