ASUS Rampage IV Extreme Review


In some respects the power is the most important element to any good overclock. If you haven't got stable voltages and smooth power delivery then you're doomed from the outset.

We all know how tough it can be to get past the POST part. This is handled by both the inclusion of the OC Key we saw on page 5, as well as the ability to overvolt your CPU even further during the boot process, so that you can get into Windows without needing fatal levels of vCore all the time.

There are definitely some options in here which aren't for the faint of heart. Thankfully most of these can be left at the defaults and still give you a good overclock. A lot of this is for the very extreme amongst you, who have the number of your local liquid nitrogen supplier on speed-dial.

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
