ASUS Rampage V 10th Anniversary Edition
Packaging and Accessories
It almost seems ungrateful to complain about the famous red packaging of the ROG range from ASUS, but we've seen so many of them that we end up turning into Phil Connors in Groundhog Day, namely any change is good. The 10th Anniversary packaging for the Rampage V is particularly fantastic though. Subtle, classy, expensive looking. Lifting the lid and the new orange colour of the ASUS ROG range beams forth like the breaking of the summer sun.
As you would expect from a special edition of an already special product, the Rampage V 10th Anniversary comes with every possible accessory, from hard multi-GPU bridges to cables and even a box containing the drivers.
This move to USB has to be applauded. Optical drives are rapidly diminishing in modern systems and the increase in internet speeds means that even large files are readily to hand. Why have a motherboard with so much USB capability if you don't demonstrate it with your packaging.
The breakout box for the SupremeFX audio headphone breakout box is built for the front panel of your tower and, as you can see from the table below, is absolutely stuffed full of high end audio hardware to ensure that your headphones can reproduce the sound exactly as the audio technician intended. Multi Op amps are backed up by the excellent ES9018K2M DAC and support headphones from the common 32 Ohm all the way up to the audiophile 600 Ohm options.
