    Thumbs up ASUS Launches the ROG Rampage IV Black Edition X79 Motherboard

    ASUS today announced the Republic of Gamers (ROG) Rampage IV Black Edition, an E-ATX gaming and overclocking motherboard designed to unleash the full potential of Intel LGA 2011 Core i7 Ivy Bridge-E processors is available for pre-order at select sites.

    Based on the Intel X79 Express chipset, the Rampage IV Black Edition includes all of the best ROG technologies and innovations for unrivaled gaming and overclocking performance. With its four PCI-E 3.0 x16 slots, two PCI-E 2.0 x1 slots and eight DIMM slots supporting up to 64 GB of overclocked DDR3 DRAM, the Rampage IV Black Edition has near limitless expansion possibilities, including support for both 4-way NVIDIA SLI and AMD CrossFireX.
    Built for the most demanding games and gamers
    In order to be able to push the limits, ROG engineers combined thoughtful design with superior quality components.

    The Rampage IV Black Edition's Extreme Engine DIGI+ III voltage-regulator module (VRM) provides highly precise and stable power delivery by employing NexFET MOSFETs, 60A (amp) chokes and high-endurance Japanese-made 10K black metallic capacitors. The motherboard's black-themed heat-sink is exclusively and cleverly integrated with the MOSFET area to extend to the input/output (I/O) cover for even better cooling and stability.

    Built-in SupremeFX Black technology provides sound quality that is on par with high-end dedicated sound cards. Premium components such as ELNA audio capacitors and German-made WIMA film capacitors deliver impeccable clarity, while high-fidelity op-amps (operational amplifiers) and a Cirrus Logic CS4398 DAC (digital/analog converter) deliver lossless audio and a brilliant 120dB SNR (signal-to-noise ratio).

    ROG's Sonic Radar on-screen overlay provides fans of first-person shooter (FPS) games with an ear to the ground, as it displays the precise direction and origin of in-game sounds such as gunshots, footsteps and call-outs - giving ROG gamers a leg-up when trying to pinpoint the enemy.

    Ultra-fast Intel Gigabit Ethernet with ROG's GameFirst II utility optimizes network traffic to keep latency to a minimum and reduce all-important ping times. The ROG RAMDisk utility allows up to 80% of a computer's available RAM to be used as a high-speed virtual drive - lending a strong performance boost to many modern games that regularly read or write data during gameplay.
    AVAILABILITY
    The Rampage IV Black Edition is currently available for pre-order at Newegg.com for US Customers and Canada Computers, Memory Express and NCIX for Canadian customers. General availability is scheduled the week of November 18, 2013.

    I will tell you my rive has busted sound ports eithernet port busted i lose quad channel once in a while and the board still benches like a banshee we all know asus rma support sucks so i lived with its broken parts.

    That said i could not hold out for the BE so i got another rive for my 4930k this week hopefully that one is a workhorse too.

    I found this today:
    http://www.kitguru.net/components/mo...rboard-review/

    I cant wait to get this thing ordered, gotta wait 'til the 19th because I can't preorder on newegg with paypal.
    I should probably test the 16gb of c9- tridentx I got a while back for this config before the time comes.
    God knows if I have to rma it could take up to 2 months to get a replacement from gskill :\, though they do have excellent support.


    Anyways I figured you guys would like checking out a review so there you go .

    Edit:
    Does anyone have a bios dump of this board?
    Reason I ask is because of the supposed boot times with both the rive and be.
    I think I can fix that with a mod if I can find the relevant code, being that this board has 2 bios chips and bios flashback there should be no issue with modding it.
    Though it's been a long time :\, that leaked bios src from a while back should help me find the post tables.
    It's a long shot though, just figured I'de ask.

    Right now I'm kinda busy messing with my phone since yesterday , I'm learning more and more about that platform as time goes on.
    I just figured it would give me something else todo.
    I was working on a nvidia bios editor, plan on getting back to work on that pretty soon too.
    Ahk was giving me some headaches so I gave it a break.

    If anyone from asus is reading this...
    You could do the mod yourself if you wanted.
    Change the 8253 timer as such, here's and example:

    Code:
    Set_tCLK_15X:
    cli				;Disable IRQ's
    mov al, 0x34			;00110100B, Control (tCLK) LSB
    out CLK_8253_Control, al	;out 0x43, al
    mov al, 0x00			;LSB
    out CLK_8253_CH0, al		;out 0x40, al
    mov al, 0xC0			;MSB
    out CLK_8253_CH0, al		;out 0x40, al
    sti				;Enable IRQ's
    ret

    From my testing and of others way back when, 1.5x seemed to be the fastest and safest value for everyone without dropping drives.
    Any faster and some people would drop there drives on post.
    If say the board takes 20 secs to post, it should post now in 15secs or less.
    Another method is to start replacing any port delays with nop's.
    Example, award's old speedy ver of an io delay replaced for even less of a delay with nops:

    Code:
    macro NEWIODELAY
    {
    	if Cleanup = 1
    		nop
    		nop
    	else
    		out 0xEB, al	;NEWIODELAY
    	end if
    }
    Anyways, anything to help .

    I have mine at Newegg currently. I picked up a 32GB ddr2400c10 G.Skill kit as well, I am excited to see what it can do on this board.

    I heard EK is working on waterblocks for this board as well, any news from them?

    I've heard the same, 2 piece block.
    Saw it ref'ed on ocn I think it's called.

    I heard that the 2400c10 can be hynix mfr single sidded, that's why i went with the cas9.
    But you got 32gigs of it, you won't have any sort of so called single sidded bandwith limits with that .
    If it is mfr, it should clock nice .

    I'm hoping for 2600c9 or 2800c9, gonna shoot for 2400c9 1st right away though.

    A board block would be nice, out of my budget right now though.
    I've got a block for one of my 2 gpu's though, need a 2nd and everything else .
    I'm actually leaning towards one of those 9x120 or 4x180mm rads..., just not sure if it'll fit on the side of my case, seen some peeps using them externally though and they look nice.
    With such a setup I could just throw the rad in my crawl space under the house or something .
    Water cooling seems nice, but initially expensive .

    (I even flirted with the idea of heating my driveway, or a garden/greenhouse for the winter using my pc)

    Looks like my kit has samsung ICs, 2500 if the sticky is correct. I planned on grabbing a 2666c10 dominator kit but was unable to locate any.

    Same here, I also got the 2500 serials on my 4 sticks.
    Mine are the 4x4gig 2400c9's.
    Pretty sure they are the samsung hyk0's, no date given on the labels though but guessing form the 2500 serial it probably is the hyk0.
    Earlier ver's with 1500 serials are supposedly hch9 that supposedly climbed a bit higher because they handled higher voltage better.
    These hyk0's are supposedly binned pretty good and should be somewhat comparable.

    Your 32gig set, are they 8 sticks?
    I'm just guessing it must be.

    Its four 8gb sticks, I really don't know what to expect here as this much memory this fast seems a little crazy.

    Awesome post as usual Dumo .

    I'm guessing the next set of profiles needed, if there's gonna be anymore, will be for 4x and 8x 8gig mfr's.
    Some people will be running those 32gig and 64gig configs.

    Hey Dumo, may I ask what samsung chips those are or the stick's model and brand?
    3000 c10 is quite the setup to reach ^^, that's bad@ss.


    This board is shaping up to be a very high quality motherboard , and that's awesome.

    I have a tracking number from Newegg, should arrive on Thursday. Not sure why they are taking a while to open up normal sales, perhaps they sold out of their first shipment, this has a lot of hype for a motherboard.

    I am very excited to get to work on this motherboard. Curious about what VTT and VCCSA are under the auto setting for ddr2400 speeds.

    Well I just ordered my brothers hardrive, a retail boxed wd red 2tb (newegg, they don't sell these locally I looked...).
    I was afraid of getting a bad drive with the oem models, then rma'ing it only to get a used non-functional drive so I paid double (pretty much) the price and got the retail boxed ver instead.

    Now I just gotta test my memory, I think I got all the instabilities of this board out of the way (no more bsod's when dl'ing cod:ghosts...).
    16gigs to test, yikes...
    My vga cards I got just about done messing with, now I just have to find my thermal gel and redo it on the new card, and pop off 2 resisters to change the device id so it matches with my 1st card.

    Man it sucks waiting for that black edition board though .

    You guys gotta post some picks if you get one .
