ASUS Rampage 4 Extreme Review


ASUS Rampage IV Extreme Review


CPU Benchmarks

It's very easy to become fixated upon overclocked results. They give us the biggest numbers, and we are Overclock3D after all. But before you look at the incredible AIDA64 scores from our overclock, take a moment to see how far ahead the stock i7-3960X is on the Rampage IV Extreme when compared to the Intel board.

Still, very close to 1 million in the AES test, over 500000 in zLib, when overclocked the combination of i7-3960X and R4E is intoxicating.

Memory Testing

Normally we always graph the item we're reviewing at the top for easy reference, but because of the nature of our Memory graph it's worth noting it's in interleaved format. In all three frequency tests the Rampage 4 gives us a better result than we saw on the reference Intel board. Although the write result remains stubbornly fixed to 15000. It's consistent at least.

Looks like a really good mobo, I thought Asus would have redesigned the BIOS for X79 though and not left it looking the same as the P67/Z68 one. Not that it looks bad or anything I just thought they would have made it look different.Quote
