    Bios templates can be found here.

    Rampage III Extreme Bios Ver 0402 Official
    Notes
    1. First release Bios

    Rampage III Extreme Bios Ver 531 beta

    Rampage III Extreme Bios Ver 534 beta

    Rampage III Extreme Bios Ver 0601 beta

    Rampage III Extreme Bios Ver 0602 Official
    Notes
    1. FIX SATA 6G device may experience S3 resume failure when using Intel i7 965 CPU

    Rampage III Extreme Bios Ver 0702 beta

    Rampage III Extreme Bios Ver 0704 beta
    Notes
    1. Added additional memory options (tRFC settings) to improve overclocking
    2. Enable support for "Subzero Booster" for improved LN2 overclocking capabilities
    3. Enabled additional CPU support for CPU Level Up functionality
    4. Improved 3D performance at stock settings

    Note - New microcode and the third party applications are not reading VCore correctly at this point, either use ProbeIt, ROG Connect, or a DMM for actual voltages. Asus are working with the third party vendors to correct this.

    Note - Uncore setting will now scale with BCLK settings when set to Auto. Manual settings will be required when running BCLKs over 220 to ensure stability and improved BCLK rates.

    Note - LN2 Modes might need to be adjusted to improve cold clocking capabilities. Auto = LN2 mode 2, setting to LN2 Mode 1 will result in potentially better overclocking below -140C. This is dependent upon CPU quality and cooling.

    Rampage III Extreme Bios Ver 0704 Official
    Notes
    1. Improve system stability

    Rampage III Extreme Bios Ver 0802 (Not beta, Formal, going official in a near future)

    3. Improved 3D performance at stock settings

    Note - Uncore setting will now scale with BCLK settings when set to Auto. Manual settings will be required when running BCLKs over 220 to ensure stability and improved BCLK rates.

    Note - LN2 Modes might need to be adjusted to improve cold clocking capabilities. Auto = LN2 mode 2, setting to LN2 Mode 1 will result in potentially better overclocking below -140C. This is dependent upon CPU quality and cooling.

    Rampage III Extreme Bios Ver 9124 beta
    Notes
    1. Added 2D SpeedBooster option for GulfTown owners
    2. Enable proper memory table reporting in 3rd party applications
    3. Improved 3D performance
    4. Tweaked LN2 Mode settings

    Note - 2D SpeedBooster option is for non-3D applications like SuperPI, WPrime, and other programs that benefit from enabling CPUMicroCode ignore flags in the BIOS. Enabling this option will improve 2D application scores but will decrease 3D performance. Asus highly suggest disabling this feature for any 3D applications or benchmarking.

    Note - This BIOS is still in Beta state and is released for those needing additional performance in 2D applications. Asus will have a final qualified version with improved memory and 3D performance shortly.

    Just ordered mine here in india.
    2 weeks to delivery and i cant wait..
    Would have loved it if it was a little cheaper though but oh well.. 500 $ aint that bad here.
    We usually pay more ! i paid 550 $ for the RIIE when it came out.

    Those of us with Iphones are out of luck on the bluetooth overclocking utility, we'll have to wait for Apple to charge us for an app. I'm really liking my board so far and haven't got to use all the features yet so i'll report more in a little bit.

    IOH heat

    I just put in the asus R3E..What a work of art!!!! This is water cooled as far as CPU...

    I was wondering...
    I put the extra NB fan that came with it..I think I used to much mx-3 and the sucker hit the 90's at start up..I reseated it and it seems to run around 70c at idle...

    Is this tooo Hot?????

    You think I should maybe put the stock one back on..I know this is mounted right..I put the one with the fan on before I put it in...

    also could be the fact that the 5870 is sitting right under it... also the heatsink is barely warm to the touch..wonder if the probe is wacked???

    Thanks for replying...

    I just picked one up to replace my RIIE. I'm most interested in ROG Connect and seeing how that works.

    531 bios : 531BIOS.ROM ( it's a backup from my boards bios hence the silly name :p ) Flash at own risk !!


    Rechecked the temps, IOH is about 57°C and SB 59°C idle (in bios)

    Board isn't stable over 229Bclock here with my 950 (not a good CPU anyway) and Gamer's 3540 ( which does 235 Blclock )... both tested on air...
