Conclusion: This board sells for around 300$ which is way more than a normal consumer would put on a motherboard, overclockers on the other hand might easily end up paying it. It got alot of cool overclocking features and were able to boost our processor quite high with simple tweaks and air cooling.
Summary: The ASUS Rampage 2 Extreme is the ultimate enthusiast motherboard with more tweaking options than you can shake a stick at. Providing incredible stability even when pushing the envelope, the R2E is at the top of the heap if you’re looking for the best of the best.
Conclusion: Compared to our experience with the Rampage II Extreme, overclocking the Eclipse was an absolute breeze. Their Cell Menu in the BIOS has plenty of options to choose from--perhaps not as many as ASUS, but it's still quite expansive. The high point was, we really didn't need them to achieve some great results. While leaving voltages on <AUTO>, the board itself boosted the necessary voltages to ensure proper operation, such that all that's really necessary for end users...
Pros: Great overclocking results, Further refinement of an already stellar bundle, ProbeIt/TweakIt will appeal to hardcore users, SoundBlaster X-Fi Audio, Easy overclocking, Fully complemented bundle
Cons: One of the priciest boards out there, Slightly finicky power regulation, BIOS features not documented well, D-LED2 installation needs further work, Higher temps than competition, Slot placement runs risk of covering ports
