Default ASUS Rampage Extreme motherboard review

The overall layout and design of the Rampage Extreme does indeed basically match most other Republic of Gamers parts, which makes for what is overall a pretty clean and well thought-out layout with no obvious complaints about bad component placement that I can think of. By default, the northbridge ships with ASUS' 'Fusion' cooling system which allows for water cooling of the chipset, but this can be switched to a more traditional chipset cooler, as we'll see later. The southbridge cooler also includes a spot where you can autograph your motherboard, so if you fancy yourself as the next world renowned overclocker then your scribble could be immortalised forever more as you become a God amongst men. Or something.

This particular motherboard also sports some top-notch power regulation capabilities, courtesy of a sixteen phase power supply which utilises three phases for its northbridge and two phases for memory while claiming power efficiency as high as 96% to make for a stable system that shouldn't generate too much excess heat. id=27
