ASUS Republic of Gamers Announces Rampage V Extreme 1

Lumpur, Malaysia (03RD September 2014)
Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced the immediate availability of Rampage
V Extreme here in Malaysia. The Intel® X99 chipset-based gaming/overclocking
motherboard engineered to take the latest LGA 2011-v3-socket Intel Core™
i7 (‘Haswell-E’) processors and DDR4 memory  to their limits.
V Extreme supports quad-channel DDR4 memory and is equipped with multiple
exclusive technologies to aid extreme overclockers, including the patent-pending
OC Socket, OC Panel, Safe Boot and ReTry buttons. Thanks to its ultimate
overclocking design and features, ROG team has broken 28 records1
with Rampage V Extreme. It currently holds two fastest CPU benchmarks (8 Core /
16C threads and 1 Core / 1 thread), 4004MHz DDR4 memory speed, 17 3DMark
scores, along with two Catzilla, two CineBench, two Wprime, XTU, and HWBotPrime
V Extreme keeps its cool with the Extreme Engine Digi+ IV voltage-regulator
module (VRM), DirectCU direct-contact cooling, X-Socket II and Fan Xpert 3
technologies, along with numerous intelligent onboard sensors. ROG’s new X99
motherboard takes the latest connectivity features to extremes, with dual 10Gbit/s
SATA Express ports, a built-in 32Gbit/s PCI Express 3.0 x4 M.2 slot and 802.11ac
Wi-Fi with a three-transmit, three-receive (3×3) antenna configuration.
V Extreme also includes multiple technologies to deliver best gaming
experiences. SupremeFX 2014 ensures flawless audio, Intel Gigabit Ethernet and GameFirst
III combine forces for no-lag networking, and KeyBot grants gamers an instant
keyboard upgrade. Exclusive Gamer’s Guardian components provide multiple
real-world protections for users.

Exclusive features for extreme overclocking
Rampage V Extreme is
packed with exclusive technologies to unleash performance that’s truly extreme
— starting with OC Socket. This exclusive processor socket utilizes extra pins
to connect a proprietary circuit to contacts found on Haswell-E’s land grid array
(LGA). When combined with the ASUS- customized UEFI, OC Socket enables higher
DDR4 memory frequencies, lower latencies and enhanced stability while
overclocking, even under extreme liquid-nitrogen (LN2) overclocking.
OC Socket is 100% compatible with new Haswell-E LGA 2011-3 CPUs, ensuring the
ideal combination of overclocking performance and compatibility. Rampage V
Extreme grants overclockers the freedom to break every performance barrier.
ROG understands
overclockers better than any other manufacturer, so Rampage V Extreme includes
all-new hardware-level Safe Boot and ReTry buttons to help put things right
when overclocking adventures go wrong — 
they’re quick, easy and real time-savers.
The new motherboard
also includes OC Panel, ROG’s exclusive real-time system monitoring and
tweaking accessory that’s a must for all hardcore overclockers.
Installed into a 5.25-inch
drive bay, OC Panel has a bright, clear 2.6-inch display that provides live monitoring
of multiple vital parameters, including CPU temperature, ratios, base clock and
fan speeds. The CPU Level Up button provides instant control over two-stage
overclocking, while CPU fan speeds can be adjusted to Turbo, Standard and
Silent modes — all these super-simple controls are placed at users’ fingertips.
Alternatively, OC
Panel acts as an external overclocking console. In this mode, there are
connectors and switches for exclusive ROG features including Subzero Sense, VGA
SMB, VGA Hotwire, Slow Mode and Pause. It also offers access to four four-pin fans
connectors, as well as remote power and reset buttons.

Pure, precise power
An extreme platform
demands extreme control over the purest power, and nothing delivers more
control or purer power than Extreme Engine Digi+ IV — Rampage V Extreme’s exclusive
voltage-regulator module (VRM).
MicroFine alloy chokes lower overall core loss for lower
temperatures, while the VRM has been upgraded with the brand-new
PowIRstage®  IR3555. This chip integrates
the driver, high-side and low-side MOSFETs and features the latest RDS On
current-sensing technology.
Extreme Engine Digi+
IV’s high-frequency pulse-width modulation (PWM) implementation scales to 1MHz,
allowing the DRAM VRM to achieve a 40% increase in stability.

Ultimate compatibility, cooling and quietness
Rampage V Extreme’s
three-piece X-Socket II makes easy work of mounting existing LN2 or
dry-ice evaporator pots to the latest LGA2011-v3 socket. The supplied star-keyed
screwdriver enables easy replacement of the LGA2011-3 backplate with X-Socket
II, so users are able to super-cool with their existing evaporators.
Exclusive DirectCU
cooling technology puts a more conductive copper heat-pipe in direct contact
with Rampage V Extreme’s VRM. Heat is then dissipated through two large aluminum
heatsinks to lower temperatures by up to 7°C.
Rampage V Extreme
also includes eight 4/3-pin (PWM/DC) combo fan connectors, four intelligent
onboard sensors, three additional 2-pin headers and a selection of three
thermal cables. The exclusive Fan Xpert 3 advanced fan controls help users monitor
the temperatures of up to seven motherboard areas and key components in real

Unmatched connectivity
With a built-in PCI
Express 3.0 x4 M.2 slot, Rampage V Extreme is primed and pumped for the next
generation of super-fast SSDs, for lightning-fast transfer speeds of up 32Gbit/s.
With a friendly horizontal installation path and support for 60, 80 and 110mm
device sizes, ROG’s new motherboard makes it easy for enthusiasts to join the
data-transfer fast lane.
Two built-in SATA
Express ports, backward-compatible with up to four SATA devices, means Rampage
V Extreme also extends storage options, with speeds of up to 10Gbit/s.
Rampage V Extreme is also
engineered with an innovative three-transmit, three-receive (3×3) 802.11ac Wi-Fi
antenna configuration, right on the board. With multiple antennas zapping data,
wireless speeds race as high as 1300Mbit/s (1.3Gbit/s). The design’s wide-reaching
range assures strong, stable connections to even distant corners of the home or
