ASUS Rampage IV Extreme Preview
The business end of the Rampage IV Extreme has a really cool feature. The top PCI Express slot has a triple slot gap before the next one. Really useful if you're fortunate enough to own the ASUS Mars II for example, but equally almost and GPU will benefit from a bit of extra space to maximise airflow.
The certainly isn't a shortage of SATA options. Alongside that are some temperature monitoring points, if you're the kind of person who is on first name terms with your local LN2 supplier this could prove very handy indeed.
There certainly is a lot of power available to the board, with an 8 Pin and 4 Pin connector behind the CPU socket. As well as the usual ASUS high-end features, there is also a cool feature that allows you to 'hotwire' your system for extremely fine voltage control without having to trim variable resistors.
The IO at the back has nearly everything you could wish for, including a plethora of USB ports. It's been a while since we've seen active cooling on an ASUS Intel board. We hope that it's more precautionary.
