Rampage III Extreme Early Look

Are you ready??

Rampage III  Extreme Early Look

ASUS Rampage III Extreme

OC3D World Exclusive

I'm sure by now you'll have heard that ASUS have updated their Republic of Gamers Rampage II Extreme , to the Rampage III Extreme. We've all been hotly anticipating it and recently we had a first look at the official ASUS photographs.

Today ASUS have finally released their official Press Release too giving us all the information we could ever need about what we can expect to see in a couple of months time.

For us here at Overclock3D.net though, frankly we're not interested in that official press release. Ok a bunch of sites will have it up or be putting it up and good for them. It's the hardware of the moment and they need all the help they can get.

Because we have it.

Here.

Now.

In our hands. On the bench...

Presenting the First Rampage III Extreme in the World

Rampage III  Extreme World Exclusive Preview Review     Rampage III  Extreme Photos Overclocking Benchmarks

What now dear readers?

Having it here naturally leaves us with two choices. Do we :

a) Regurgitate the ASUS press release about how packed with the latest technology this board is and how you need it in your life?

b) Use that time towards benchmarking this puppy so we can have a full, hands-on, review for you to read on Friday?

Considering you know that as part of the Republic of Gamers brand this will do everything you can think of and some that you can't. Because it's not even out yet it will be stuffed to the gills with the latest technologies such as SATA6, USB3, ASUS ROG Connect for overclocking via another PC and chokes that can handle 40 amperes.

And because we love doing the voodoo that we do so well, we're going to concentrate on torturing this until it begs for mercy rather than make do with press releases.

To tide you over until Friday, keep a tissue handy because Tom has a video for you :

 

After that I think we all need a lie down. But we never rest here at OC3D so that you can.

IIRC the story involved Tom getting a very sore throat.

Looks like a killer board, I have high expectations.

No idea how you managed to get Asus to send you one, nice work! I look forward to the review on friday.

Enjoy your birthday tom!Quote

Awesome. A honorable challenger to the EVGA Classified.

Tom, would it be possible for OC3D to get it hands on a Crosshair IV Formula 890GX any time soon? From the previews I've seen, it looks sweeet. And rumours say, that it will only cost a tad bit over 200 bucks.Quote

*Drool* amazing looking board. I'm glad that there isnt a nf200 on it! I also want to find out more about the Crosshair IV Extreme as the new Phenom X4T and X6T chips look bad ass. Any1 know about a Rampage III Formula or Crosshair IV Formula?Quote

Sweet looking board. Back when I got my Asus P5N-D 750i I thought it was sexy. But wow, this things tops the cake of sexiness. Wish I had the money to go i5/7 just for this puppy!Quote

The looks of this board are growing on me, first time I saw it I thought Mmm not bad. Your right top the heatsinks do look the tits. Any heads up on pricing? 400notes like the classified?Quote

Nice looking board. Heatsinks dont cut it for me though. Would prefer a change from the red/black rampage theme now as it's getting a bit boring and for a TOTR board with TOTR price tag, I wanna stand out from the crowd. I look forward to the analysis/performance results with eager anticipation.

Great score for OC3D getting hold of it first - well done Tom!Quote

sweet! If i were to buy a new boar dit would probably be a Formula - I find the extreme boards often have a bit too muchQuote

We've waited this long, I would rather wait to see a lot of what this board can do with that Gulftown, than see advertising. As much detail as you can muster.

If there are requests, I'd love to see this run in raid 0 with some really fast SSDs, if you have

anything that cam make use of the SATA 6Gig.

Lastly, I'm most impressed you could do that video without giggling. I think I would have.
