There is more to this motherboard than the eyes can see. ASUS has packed a lot of tried and true technology as well as some great new innovations into their latest Republic of Gamers (ROG) motherboard. This is the new Rampage IV Black Edition and it may just be the perfect balance between overclocking and gaming.
The Rampage IV Black Edition is an E-ATX motherboard designed for the Intel LGA 2011 socket (Ivy Bridge-E processor family) with the Intel X79 Express chipset. It includes all of the best ROG technologies such as four PCI-E 3.0 x16 slots, eight DIMM slots support 64 GB RAM Disk, premium sound from the SupremeFX Black, and RoG Sonic Radar. It also comes with the ASUS award-winning UEFI BIOS. And all this is just the basics.
What separates the Rampage IV Black Edition from the rest is the Overclocking Panel. A dedicated piece of hardware you can use to directly access your motherboard's sensors and overclocking features. There is no need to go through third-party software, or reboot every time you make a major change. The Overclocking Panel gives you up to the second system information and the power to change the Rampage IV's performance in an instant, making the overclocking process much more accessible.
ASUS didn't forget about gamers either. In addition to the high quality audio solution, RAM Disk to load your games 10 times faster than an SSD, and Extreme Engine III Digi+ VRM, ASUS also brings GameFirst II. This software will regulate network traffic and ensure your games get priority over everything else. Now there is no need to turn off an update, stop a download, etc. You can just play your favorite game like Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag, for example, which comes free with the Rampage IV Black Edition.
