27 August 2014
Summary: Had this mobo for a few years now. Everything was fine until I needed to overclock the components in order to overcome some CPU usage problems I started to face while gaming. Using the profiles included with the board, I was able to OC memory and CPU, but later I decided to underclock my RAM to achieve more stability, after that the mobo died. I spent hours trying to resolve the issue with no results, the Dram qled is on and the mobo will not boot.
Summary: I thought this would be the end all for gaming and video streaming. I was wrong. Asus did not support a good software upgrade for a long time. The SATA 3 still doesn't work. It just wasn't worth the price.
Solidly Detailed and Truly Professional Review for the Rampage III Extreme!
25 September 2013
Summary: I will try to make this review as exhaustive as possible to highlight the benefits and the downfalls of using it,the good and the bad features at the same time. My personal advice for a potential buyer:Only the Extreme need to apply,you will also need serious knowledge about CPU overclocking and Asus Bioses in particular! It is definitely not for the general PC user with average skills at handling computers!
The best motherboard for outdated socket 1366 cpus
1 September 2013
Summary: This motherboard is one of the best for Intel socket 1366 cpus. It overclocks very well. Since socket 1366 cpus themselves are already somewhat dated, the value of this board depends on what you want from your computer. The board has two USB version 3.0. Therefore you can entertain a high speed connection with your USB devices. However, the PCI-E lanes are version 2.0. You can run two video cards in SLI/CF at 16x PCI-E (ver 2.0) speed.
