ASUS Rampage V 10th Anniversary Edition Review

Introduction

About a month ago we ran through our first look of the latest iteration of ASUS' incredibly popular Rampage series of motherboards, the Rampage V Edition 10. The 10th anniversary model.

If you want an in-depth look at the incredible set of features that the Rampage V comes with, then let us point you towards our fulsome preview >>here<<. It's definitely worth a read as the Rampage V Edition 10 is all about the latest technologies, and some seriously high-end components. If you just look at the results in our graph it's the equivalent of eating steak without any side dishes at all.

Have you all caught up? Excellent. Let's get down to business.

Test Setup

Usually our X99 motherboards are tested with the 8 core Core i7-5960X. However, it would be crazy for anyone to buy such a high-end motherboard as the Rampage V and not utilise the monstrously powerful Intel Core i7-6950X. Ten cores of power seem perfect for a 10th Anniversary motherboard, and it also gives us a good excuse to dust it off and see how a high-end ASUS motherboard matches up to their mid-range X99A.

ASUS Rampage V Edition 10
Intel Core i7-6950X
2800MHz Corsair LPX
3000MHz Gskill Ripjaws
3200MHz Gskill TridentZ
3200MHz Corsair LPX
3600MHz Dominator Platinum
nVidia GTX980
Corsair RM1000i
Corsair Neutron GTX
Corsair H110i GT
Windows 10

Overclocking

As you would expect to find with a motherboard bristling with such tremendous quality components wherever you look, and if the power phases weren't enough then the ASUS OC Socket certainly sets it apart and both together create figurative fireworks, the ASUS Rampage V Edition 10 is an overclocking monster. There is no doubt that it could go far faster with a 'luckier' at these low voltages and with the capability to run such fast Cache, DRAM speed and CPU speed at the same time it's clear that the extra expense is worth it for a system that pushes all of the boundaries, rather than just one or two. Add to that it did this with such ease that it honestly made us feel like it was taunting us so much we actually borrowed another CPU to test (luckily ours seems to be one of the better few)

The bigger question is will the memory work with your CPU as you are at the limits of what Broadwell E can do speed wise. You may be lucky and be able to get it to run with a good IMC on your CPU but you may be disappointed.

You are also pushing your luck with the capacity as the more you want to run the harder it is for the CPU.

You need to work out what you want to use your PC for and get the right memory for it.Quote

^^^Kap is right. 3466 probably wont XMP and youd have to set it up manually (youd want to no matter what at that speed) but your CPU will be the limiting factor not the board.Quote
