Well well well....aren't you the little powerhouse
27 February 2015
Summary: Bought this after my Intel mobo crashed, which was a couple years ago, this little guy has been running non-stop with no glitches at all... Fastforward some years ahead, upgrade the Bios and it is running even better for me...
Summary: This motherboard is awesome. Don't be fooled by its size. Has everything that you will need. The quality is fantastic. For the price, is one of the best options for an i7 LGA1366. I have my Core i7 920 easily overclocked to 3.5GHz and the system is stable even under the highest loads. This motherboard is as easy to setup as you can imagine. Plenty of options to setup and overclock. Excellent memory and device compatibility.
Summary: Exceptionally clean layout, fantastic performance, micro-ATX size. Hard to improve on this board, given that it handles 6+ GB memory, 7 SATA ports (1 e-sata), fast i7 processor, on-board 7.1 sound, 12 USB, 2 Firewire, 2 PCI-e 2.0, etc. Solid, fast, small, well-constructed, with good over-clocking tools and potential. I say this having built systems based on Asus Maximus Formula SE and Intel DX58SO Smackover, and this mATX is just as fast.
Summary: i bought the asus rampage motherboard and the i7 processor my dream was to build my own gaming system and i have been using this system for a week or so running my system almost 24hrs a day so far the system is so cool and its extremely cool and the games run perfectly on it.i would rate the board a 5 star.cheers
Summary: I've had the Asus Maximus & Asus P5Q Deluxe and I have to say that Rampage Gene ii is the miles ahead of these two when it comes to overclocking and rock solid performance. I've been using now for a 1 month with OCZ Tri-Channel 1840MHz ram-- not once has my system crashed and I leave it on all day and night. It's great. I've been OC'ing my I7 chip at 3GHz and ram at 1600MHz 7-7-7-20 non stop. Not one hic-up. Plus you get more room in your case. I love it!!!
Excerpt: ____________________________________ heute möchte ich über mein Mainboard berichten. Es handelt sich um das Rampage 2 Gene Mainboard von Asus mit dem X58 Chipsatz von Intel Es handelt sich um ein Micro-ATX ( µATX = 24.4 cm x 24.4 cm) ) Board. Das wäre nun eigentlich nichts ausergewöhnliches, allerdings besitzt dieses den Sockel 1366. Es ist eines von insgesamt nur 4 mATX Boards die diesen Sockel unterstützen. Der Preis steht momentan bei ca. 175 Euro.
Pros: lief auf Anhieb stabil, kleiner Formfaktor, sehr umfangreiche Ausstattung
Cons: Northbridgekühlung könnte besser sein, Kabel des LCD Posters zu kurz
