Asus ROG Rampage Extreme: The Ultimate X48 Overclocking Board


Overclocking enthusiasts may find the new Asus ROG Rampage Extreme motherboard quite interesting.

The ROG Extreme Engine is a next-generation dynamic multi-phase power management system. Equipped with ML Caps (Multilayer type Polymer Capacitor) located at the CPU, Memory and Northbridge, this special power design ensures a stable power supply during overvoltage by lowering ESR (Equivalent Series Resistance) - resulting in reliable performance the mission-critical components of the processor, system memory and the Northbridge. These premium ML Caps integrate seamlessly with the 16-phase power design that incorporates 3-phases for the Northbridge and 2-phases for memory - ensuring power stability to allow users the peace of mind to venture into high voltage options in the BIOS. The Extreme Engine is also able to achieve a high power efficiency of 96% - resulting in less energy loss and less heat production. Additionally, settings can be changed on-the-fly to yield even greater heat dissipation.

The ROG Rampage Extreme also includes an optional thermal kit for even better heat dissipation. With a removable MOS heatsink, NB heatsink and optional fan, users can mix and match cooling options to meet every cooling requirement. This customizable cooling option works on the back of the existing ASUS exclusive Fusion Block System. Combining the ROG's heatpipe design with a factory-installed chipset water block, this hybrid cooling system provides exceptional thermal improvement to the Northbridge, Southbridge, and even VRM components on the motherboard. While connected to a water cooling system, this hybrid cooling system simultaneously dissipates heat from chipsets and VRMs to provide cooler temperatures for added stability.

TweakIt is a brand new feature that caters to users who want a convenient way to perform trial and error runs for overclocking without entering the BIOS for great time savings. With the joystick-like control, every overclocking option is available for the user - allowing them to utilize performance optimizations "on-the-fly". Used in conjunction with the LCD Poster device, gamers can then overclock during gaming.
