  • Excerpt: To run Asus’s $400 Rampage II Extreme board you’d have to be either extreme or the world’s biggest poseur. How extreme would you have to be? You’d have to be the type of person who boils liquid helium atop his CPU to keep it cool. And because you can’t waste time overclocking from within the OS, you’d want to reach your hands into the guts of your case and use the board’s PCB-mounted controls that let you check and change voltage, fan speeds, and temps on a tiny one-line...
  • Pros: If you like adjusting BIOS settings such as CPU Differential Amplitude, the Extreme is for you.

  • Cons: - Kein Wasserkühler für Chipsatz, - Stromaufnahme im Standby, -, -

Asus Rampage II Extreme

15 December 2008
  • Summary: Con ASUS Rampage II Extreme ci troviamo di fronte ad uno degli attuali punti di riferimento per la costruzione di piattaforme basate su Core i7. La qualità costruttiva e la cura dei dettagli è davvero maniacale e non bada a compromessi. Il bundle fornito è all'altezza dell'hardware che lo accompagna. Il layout è molto curato ed ergonomico, nonostante il grande quantitativo di periferiche e dispositivi integrati.
