Asus Rampage III Extreme Motherboard
5 March 2011
Summary: We know several overclockers that swear by Asus products and turn their noses up at even considering a different motherboard brand. After having used the Rampage III Extreme for what it was intended we can see where this comes from. On the surface the R3E looks like any other gaming motherboard but some of the subtle features help to distinguish this board from being a simple gaming platform.
Pros: Red and Black Color Scheme, PCI Express Disable Switches, Excellent BIOS Support, 4-Way Multi GPU Support, 3-Way SLI Support, Lots of Aftermarket Parts
Cons: Motherboard heatsink could have been designed better, Lots of stuff around the CPU socket (difficult to insulate), Bluetooth connect not available on PC, ROG Connect won't adjust multipliers
Conclusion: The Rampage III Extreme was worthy enough to make it into our main system for everyday use. We’ve seen several new innovations on this motherboard that we have not seen in the past, like BIOS flashing through a USB flash drive without any hardware present, the introduction of all 4-pin PWM fan connectors for better fan control through software and hardware and RPM reading, the LN2 mode to allow users to bypass the CPU Freeze problems when their system becomes unusable...
[Review] ASUS Rampage III Extreme – Long Live The King
8 October 2010
Conclusion: After testing the Rampage III Extreme, we can easily say this is the best X58 motherboard at the time of writing this review. It was very easy to overclock for the beginner and had all of the features and options the extreme overclockers would want. It is a leap ahead of the competition with all of the accessories, features, and performance. Two thumbs up to ASUS for providing such a great feature set and quality at a good price.
Excerpt: At first glance, you might think the Asus Rampage III Extreme board has just four PCI-E slots, which would be simply wimpy next to the whopping six slots in MSI’s Big Bang-XPower. But don’t be fooled by the optical illusion. The Rampage III actually has five PCI-E slots capable of fitting full x16 PCI-E cards, and one oddly empty space.
Pros: Damned-cool Bluetooth remote control; flexible PCI-E slots.
Cons: Only one USB header; terrible optional north bridge cooler; pricey.
Summary: It would be easy to write tens of thousands of words about the features of the Rampage III Extreme, so keeping this review within our usual concise word limit was tricky to say the least. There is a huge array of interesting new features that Asus has managed to cram into this board, some of which really do change the way you'll use your PC when overclocking.
Summary: Well then my fellow hardware gurus, there's no doubt that ASUS has released a brilliant motherboard with the Rampage III Extreme. It's is diverse, it is flexible and when it comes to overclocking it is supreme. Huge plusses are the added USB 3.0 and SATA 6G controllers which both deliver extremely good performance as they have been properly implemented and get the bandwidth to work with that they deserve.
Excerpt: In accordance with ASUS philosophy of presenting new devices in short periods of time, not long after the first Fonepad, new models, Fonepad Note 6 and Fonepad 7, have been announced.

Just remember the older computers with mas...
