    Asus Rampage IV Black Edition Unboxing - Taking a peek at the King !

    Asus has always produced some of the most iconic and epic motherboards under their ROG ( Republic Of Gamers ) line and this new Asus Rampage IV Black Edition carries on that rich lineage of amazing innovation and build quality. This is a true Shamino masterpiece and is definitely going to go down in history as one of the best motherboards ever made under the ROG line or any other product line by any manufacturer. Feature packed to the hilt.. and built like a tank.. it's safe to say, i am totally in love . I love it soo much that I want to marry this motherboard

    Right from the matt black pcb to the quality of components on the mobotherboard.. i cant find a fault with this motherboard at all !!
    This thing is truly a no holes barred motherboard that has to be held and felt to be believed, and when you hold it, you will be shocked with the weight of this motherboard. Feels heavy, solid and just put together on another level
    Whether it is top end power delivery through a new PWM setup along with the ultra high end Asus 60A BlackWing chokes, 10K Black Metallic capacitors, and 90% efficient NexFET MOSFETs, or it be the new WI-Fi AC built in or even the excellent Superme FX Sound Card, This board has it all !!!

    I can keep going on and on and on because quite frankly i have gone gaga mad over this board .. Having used it for a few days all i can say where have you been all my life Mr Rampage IV Black ?

    I wont keep rambling anymore and will get straight to the business.. The pics

    Nice info

    Some additinal info:

    oc panel

    Almost exactly like M6E exept no need for ROG connect Plus to be installed

    Slow mode switch will reduce your multiplier cpu in windows, usable for cold cpu operation

    Pause switch will stop all operation in windows. It helps when benching with air or h20 and push cpu / gpu to highest temp. and voltages limit.
    It will give a break to cpu / gpu and return to normal idle temp. before continuing to bench load temp.

    HDD led will help to check if system hang occur, it helps when benching Super pi or 3Ds

    For temp. monitoring
