    ASUS Rampage III Extreme Preview

    Finally, I receive final version Rampage III Extreme, but no heatsink still. Some nice pics to share first.

    I love these digital pwm so much. You guys will see all in the pics. R3E's size is the same as R2E. This R3E version is "Non-NF200".





























































    Ready to test.






    I just test uncore and memory on air quickly.











    Enjoy

    So is this board going to have a "RC Blutooth" module or are they just traces on the board for a future revision?

    Thanks for sharing Andre. This board is so crowded that I wonder how Asus will fit NF200s on it... That version, of course if it's in works, that's gonna probably a little bit larger than this.

    these plugs just are for ATI Quad or triple crossfireX.

    I think ROG series will have it in the future.

    I have NF200 version R3E,too. Its size is the same as E762. I am not sure it will be available in the future. It depends on Nvidia "Quad SLI" support.

    Did you mess around with the CPU vcore or just throughout a number that you knew would work? Just curious as it seems a little high for 4.2Ghz on a D0 chip. Love the information and really appreciate you doing all this testing Andre.

    Thx for sharing Andre. Let's hope they hit the shelves soon. So Asus is gonna improve the IOH heatsink then, very good idea !!

    Any word on max Bclock for the non extreme cpu users ?
    Question : Why do some overclockers switch into d*ckmode when money is involved

    Remark : They call me Pro Asus Saaya yupp, I agree

    I'd certainly like to see some more involved testing. Id this full digital VRM or 'hybrid' VRM as the Asus reps were saying in the other thread?

    No idea why they used s775 mounting holes also. Aren't they for really low end boards? There are many good s1366 cooling solutions out now, I see no reason for it.

    Memoryoverclocking with CL7 looks good. Remember issues with high clocks and CL7 on R2E. Seems like its getting better
