Asus OC Socket utilizes extra pins to connect a proprietary circuit, to contacts found on Haswell-E's land grid array (LGA). Combined with the customized UEFI, this feature enables higher DDR4 memory frequencies, lower latencies and enhanced stability while overclocking, extending all the way to extreme overclocking conditions, such as Liquid Nitrogen (LN2). OC Socket is 100% compatible with new Haswell-E LGA 2011-v3 CPUs, ensuring the ideal combination of overclocking performance and compatibility.
Cache Bus Voltage Adjustment
Cache bus links areas such as CPU cores, DDR4 memory controllers, system agent, and the shared L3 cache. It interconnects the whole CPU sub-system. Higher cache bus frequency directly gives faster total sub-system performance. The Asus OC Socket provides an adjustable cache bus voltage to reach high cache bus frequencies.
It supports DDR4 memory, and it is capable of overclocking memory up to DDR4 3300+ MHz with all eight DIMMs. ASUS T-Topology circuit design plus patent-pending OC Socket releases the full potential of DDR4 by minimizing crosstalk and signal reflections. Signal timing issues are reduced, resulting in improved stability and overall performance.

If your system hangs during the power-on self-test (POST) boot process; just hit the motherboard's hardware-level ReTry button to force a reboot immediately.

Extreme Engine Digi+ IV

This platform has control over the power with voltage-regulator module (VRM). MicroFine alloy chokes lower overall core loss for lower temperatures, while the VRM has been upgraded with PowIRstage IR3555. This chip integrates the driver, high-side, and low-side MOSFETs and features the RDS On current-sensing technology. Extreme Engine Digi+ IV's high-frequency pulse-width modulation (PWM) implementation scales to 1MHz allowing the DRAM VRM to achieve a 40% increase in stability.

Cooling Environment

DirectCU Thermal Design
This technology puts optimal conductive copper heat-pipes in direct contact with Rampage V Extreme's Extreme Engine Digi+ IV VRM zone to provide heat dissipation. Rampage V Extreme with DirectCU goes up to 7℃ cooler. The heat coming from the chokes and VRM zone is absorbed by the copper heatpipe and then dissipated through two large aluminum heat-sinks for optimal cooling.
X-Socket II
Rampage V Extreme's three-piece X-Socket II makes user-friendly work of mounting your existing liquid-nitrogen (LN2) or dry-ice evaporator pots to the LGA2011-3 socket. Use the supplied star screwdriver to replace the LGA2011-3 backplate with X-Socket II to cool the system.
Thermal Sensor and Fan Connectors
This motherboard has eight 4/3-pin (PWM/DC) combo fan connectors, FanXpert 3, seven thermal sensors, four onboard sensors, three additional 2-pin headers, and a selection of three thermal cables to help you monitor the temperatures of up to seven key components in real time. These features allow it to adjust the CPU and case coolers automatically for dissipating heat or manually make the adjustments yourself.


SupremeFX 2014
Isolation technologies minimize Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) and the components deliver optimal audio. SupremeFX 2014 has been refined for Rampage V Extreme that means finer components and software innovations for gaming and multimedia experiences are enhanced.
Sonic SenseAmp
Sonic SenseAmp is an ROG invention that detects headphone impedance (below 65/65-150/150 or higher ohms) and adjusts the built-in amp automatically, for suitable pitch listening.
