OC3D Review: ASUS Rampage Extreme Motherboard

With a Q6600 and DDR3 in hand we set out to clock the nuts off ASUS's latest motherboard aimed squarely at the overclocker.

Nice review, mate.

This board is really cool looking, but the price tag hurts my eyes .

They should put that cooler onto the rampage formula and the sound card also .

£250! Are they serious?!

8/10 on the price!? Are you serious or have you started crapping 24 carrot turds?

It's a nice mobo (and review) but £250 is beyond a joke. I hope this flops. Top end mobos should be around the £150/175 max. I can't... It's... £250. WTF.

Is that the only award it gets. Editor's Choice

I suggest you go back and put more awards like Gamers Choice and Best in its class

My sentiments exactly mate, PC manufacturers should start getting a handle on what an 'enthusiast' is. It's not someone who spends that on a mobo, that's for sure.

8/10 on price is a little generous I feel Matt

Lush board though

Thanks for the comments and feedback guys it is appreciated. As for the price issue, yes it is a very dear board. But I'd probably pay that for a motherboard of this calibre personally. When I bought my Blitz Formula SE it was nearly AUS$500, and after conversion the ASUS Rampage Formula comes in at AUS$530. It's relative. Hopefully the price will fall significantly in the short term as it is a great motherboard

Great review mate. It's made me interested enough to consider trying one I am either going to get this one or wait for the x58's.

Great review. This board certainly is awesome. I believe the first ROG board was the Crosshair though
