ASUS Rampage III Extreme overview

  • 1Description

The Rampage III Extreme Motherboard from ASUS is an ATX computer motherboard that supports Intel Socket 1366 it CPUs. It supports up to 24GB of DDR3 memory and has two SATA 6Gbps slots, as well as six SATA 3Gbps slots. The motherboard is powered by the Intel X58 / ICH10R chipset. Four PCIe x16 slots support multi-GPU architectures, while eleven USB ports, including two USB 3.0 ports, provide extensive connectivity. Eight-channel audio and S/PDIF connectors round out the I/O options, while extensive overclocking tools and features give you precise control over the motherboard's behavior.

LGA1366 Intel Core i7 Ready
This motherboard supports the latest Intel Core i7 processors in LGA1366 package with integrated memory controller to support 3-channel (6 DIMMs) DDR3 memory. Supports Intel QuickPath Interconnect (QPI) with a system bus of up to 6.4GT/s and a max bandwidth of up to 25.6GB/s.
Intel X58 Chipset
The Intel X58 Express Chipset is one of the most powerful chipset designed to support the Intel Core i7 Processors with LGA1366 package and Intel next generation system interconnect interface, Intel QuickPath Interconnect (QPI), providing improved performance by utilizing serial point-to-point links, allowing increased bandwidth and stability. It also supports up to 36 PCI Express 2.0 lanes providing better graphics performance.
PCIe 2.0
This motherboard supports the PCIe 2.0 devices for double speed and bandwidth which enhances system performance.
SLI/CrossFireX On-Demand
SLI or CrossFireX? Fret no longer because with the ROG Rampage III Extreme, you'll be able to run both multi-GPU setups. The board features SLI/CrossFire on Demand technology, supporting up to four graphics cards in a 3-Way SLI or CrossFireX configuration. Whichever path you take, you can be assured of jaw-dropping graphics at a level previously unseen.
Tri-Channel, DDR3 2200(O.C.) MHz
The motherboard supports DDR3 memory that features data transfer rates of 2200(O.C.) / 2133(O.C.) / 2000(O.C.) / 1800(O.C.) / 1600(O.C.) / 1333 / 1066MHz to meet the higher bandwidth requirements of the latest operation system, 3D graphics, multimedia, and Internet applications. The Triple-channel DDR3 architecture double the bandwidth of your system memory to boost system performance.
USB 3.0 Support
Experience ultra-fast data transfers at 4.8Gbps with USB 3.0. Built to connect easily with next generation components and peripherals, USB 3.0 transfers data 10X faster and is also backward compatible with USB 2.0 components.
True SATA 6Gb/s Support
Supporting next-generation Serial ATA (SATA) storage interface, this motherboard delivers up to 6Gbps data transfer rates. Additionally, get enhanced scalability, faster data retrieval, double the bandwidth of current bus systems.
Extreme Engine Digi+
Extreme Engine Digi+ equipped with high performance digital VRM design can easily achieve the ultimate performance with adjustable CPU PWM frequency. It expedites heat dissipation and achieves better electric conduction keeping critical components reliable. Now you'll be able to push your new Intel CPU to the limit, hitting benchmark scores that others only dream of. Extreme Engine Digi+ balances the need for voltage and the desire for rock solid performance to bring the ultimate user experience.
ROG Connect
Monitor the status of your desktop PC and tweak its parameters in real-time via a notebook-just like a race car engineer-with ROG Connect. ROG Connect links your main system to a notebook through a USB cable, allowing you to view real-time POST code and hardware status readouts on your notebook, as well as make on-the-fly parameter adjustments at a purely hardware level. ROG Connect even allows you to flash your BIOS from the notebook, which means that you can OC your system to the max without any fear of permanently bricking the motherboard due to a corrupted BIOS.
The iROG is a special IC which enables several ROG highlighted functions that gives users full disposal of the motherboard at any stage. This design allows advanced user control and management to be processed purely at a hardware level. iROG greatly increases fun during overclocking for PC enthusiasts and it offers system maintenance and management with more control and efficiency.
BIOS FlashBack
With BIOS Flashback, PC enthusiasts can overclock with even more confidence. BIOS Flashback gives overclockers the ability to save two versions of the BIOS simultaneously. Very much like the "SaveGame" function, one BIOS can be used for the overclocking adventure, while the other BIOS is to be stored with any previous version.
Voltiminder LED
In the pursuit of extreme performance, overvoltage adjustment is critical but risky. Acting as the "red zone" of a tachometer, the Voltiminder LED displays the voltage status for CPU, NB, SB, and Memory in an intuitive color-coded fashion. The voltiminder LED allows quick voltage monitoring for overclockers.
Loadline Calibration
Maintaining ample voltage support for the CPU is critical during overclocking. The Loadline Calibration ensures stable and optimal CPU voltage under heavy loading. It helps overclockers enjoy the motherboard's ultimate OC capabilities and benchmark scores.
USB BIOS Flashback
USB BIOS Flashback allows overclockers to just plug a thumb drive into the ROG Connect port and push the ROG Connect button and the stored BIOS is automatically flashed under standby power.
RC Bluetooth
Use RC Bluetooth to bring your overclocking to the next level. Monitor the desktop PC system status & tweak its parameters in real-time. When users want to use ordinary Bluetooth functions, just simply push the button once again & enjoy all the wireless convenience brought from RC Bluetooth.
ProbeIt takes the guesswork out of locating the motherboard´s measurement points, identifying them clearly in the form of 8 sets of detection points so you´ll know exactly where to get quick yet accurate readings using a multitester.
CPU Level Up
Upgrade your CPU at no additional cost with ROG's CPU Level Up. Simply pick the processor you wanted to OC to, and the motherboard will do the rest. See the new CPU speed and enjoy that performance instantly.
Extreme Tweaker
Extreme Tweakers is the one stop shop to fine-tune your system to optimal performance. No matter if you´re looking for frequency adjustment, over-voltage options, or memory timing settings, they're all here.
The COP EX allows overclockers to increase chipset voltages without the worries of overheating. It can also be used to monitor and save an overheating GPU. The COP EX allows more freedom and less constraint for maximum performance achievement.
8-channel Audio
The onboard 8-channel HD audio (High Definition Audio, previously codenamed Azalia) CODEC enables high-quality 192KHz/24-bit audio output, jack-sensing feature, retasking functions and multi-streaming technology.
Noise Filter
This feature detects repetitive and stationary noises like computer fans, air conditioners, and other background noises then eliminates it in the incoming audio stream while recording.
Q-Fan Plus
The Q-Fan function automatically detects temperature and adjusts fan speed accordingly to achieve quiet and efficient cooling. With Q-Fan Plus, special temperature sensor cable is provided to detect temperature on any device. When used with optional fans, you may activate Q-Fan function on up to 3 additional devices of your choice.
ASUS Q-Connector
The Q-Connector allows you to connect or disconnect chassis front panel cables in one easy step with one complete module. This unique adapter eliminates the trouble of plugging in one cable at a time, making connection quick and accurate.
Onboard Switch
With an easy press during overclock, this exclusive onboard switch allows gamer to effortlessly fine-tune the performance without having to short the pins or moving jumpers.
3DMark Vantage Advanced Edition
3DMarkVantage is the new industry standard PC gaming performance benchmark from Futuremark, newly designed for Windows Vista and DirectX10. It includes two new graphics tests, two new CPU tests, several new feature tests, and support for the latest hardware. 3DMark Vantage is based on a completely new rendering engine, developed specifically to take full advantage of DirectX10, the new graphics API from Microsoft.
Kaspersky Anti-Virus
Kaspersky Anti-Virus Personal offers premium antivirus protection for individual users and home offices. It is based on advanced antivirus technologies. The product incorporates the Kaspersky Anti-Virus engine, which is renowned for malicious program detection rates that are among the industry´s highest.
