Overclock3D awarded the ASUS Rampage V Extreme their gold award. They said "Yes, it's like any quality product in that you get what you pay for, so you have to pay a little more for the many MANY features of the Rampage V Extreme, but given how expensive the i7-5960X is it would be churlish to berate it for price. The King is dead, long live the King, and he gets crowned with our OC3D Gold Award."
eTeknix have awarded the ASUS rampage V extreme their extreme performance award. They said “A premium platform like X99 deserves a premium motherboard and that’s exactly what the ASUS Rampage V Extreme offers. Class leading performance, connectivity, quality and features make the R5E the ultimate motherboard for any consumer.”
4-Way SLI™/CrossFireX™ support
Perfect spacing and PCI Express 3.0 speed for incredible graphics!
Unleash the full power of multiple graphics cards for visuals that never stutter, with just the right amount of space between each card. Onboard switches let you selectively enable or disable cards in a flash — configuring multi-GPU setups has never been easier!
Patent-pending OC Socket
Drive CPU and DDR4 performance beyond the limits!
Designed to break performance barriers, ASUS OC Socket utilizes extra pins to connect a proprietary circuit to contacts found on Haswell-E's land grid array (LGA). Combined with our customized UEFI, this exclusive 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.
Make your memory go faster
Optimized for extreme overclocking
This is the first platform to support DDR4 memory, and it is capable of overclocking memory up to DDR4 3300+ MHz with all eight DIMMs fully loaded! ASUS-exclusive T-Topology circuit design plus patent-pending OC Socket unleash the full potential of DDR4 by minimizing crosstalk and signal reflections. Thanks to our expertise in motherboard layout design, signal timing issues are also greatly reduced, resulting in improved stability and overall performance. ASUS works with almost every DDR4 memory vendor to ensure the best compatibility – so you're assured reliable performance from your favorite brands.
Intuitive overclocking command center!
Get your hands on real-time system monitoring and tweaking in two modes. For both, a clear 2.6-inch display keeps you informed and in full control — so you can maximize the available power!
NORMAL MODE – easy system monitoring and performance boosts!
OC Panel can be installed directly into a 5.25-inch drive bay to provide real-time monitoring of multiple vital parameters, including CPU temperature, ratios, base clock and fan speeds. The CPU Level Up button provides instant control over two-stage overclocking, while CPU fan speeds can be adjusted to Turbo, Standard and Silent modes — super-simple controls, all at your fingertips.
EXTREME MODE — advanced overclocking made easy!
OC Panel can also be used as external overclocking console. In this mode, there are connectors and switches for exclusive ROG features including Subzero Sense, VGA SMB, VGA Hotwire, Slow Mode and Pause. You also have direct access to four-pin fans connectors – four in total! — as well as remote power and reset buttons.
Safe Boot Button & ReTry Button
Save more time, break more records
ROG understands overclockers better than any other manufacturer — so Rampage V Extreme includes all-new hardware-level Safe Boot and ReTry buttons to help put things right when overclocking adventures go wrong. They're quick, easy and real time-savers!
Safe Boot Button
One quick tap of the Safe Boot button powers off your system and launches into Safe Mode, where you can tweak your retained previous settings.
Click the Safe Boot button
Automatically load into Safe Mode
Settings preserved, modify them to try again
DirectCU thermal design
Copper-cooled to the core
Exclusive DirectCU cooling technology puts better conductive copper heat-pipes in direct contact with Rampage V Extreme's Extreme Engine Digi+ IV VRM zone to provide incomparable heat dissipation. Other designs merely prevent overheating — Rampage V Extreme with DirectCU goes up to 7¢J cooler.
The heat coming from the chokes and VRM zone is absorbed by the copper heatpipe and then dissipated through two large aluminum heatsinks for ultimate cooling.
8 x 4/3-pin combo fan connectors + 7 thermal sensors + Fan Xpert 3
Advanced fan controls for ultimate cooling and quietness
Rampage V Extreme has 8 x 4/3-pin (PWM/DC) combo fan connectors, four intelligent onboard sensors plus three additional 2-pin headers and a selection of three thermal cables to help you monitor the temperatures of up to seven motherboard or key components in real time — so you're able to adjust CPU and case coolers automatically or manually for the best dissipation.
