Asus Rampage IV Formula Motherboard Review

Hey everyone! Welcome to my review of the Asus Rampage IV Formula Motherboard. This motherboard has the X79 chipset and socket 2011. It's part of the Asus Republic of gamers series, which means it has all of the incredible overclocking diagnostic and gaming features. There are three different versions of this motherboard. At the top is the extreme, designed more for overclocking than the formula designed more for gaming, and then the gene, an M ATX small budget version of the motherboard.

Every motherboard has some main features. Like that, the Asus Rampage IV Formula Motherboard has some main features. The Supreme FX 3, high-quality audio, extreme onboard engine digi+ refers to the premium power delivery components used on the motherboard X socket. The Supreme FX 3 audio, so you can pause and read that if you want to, it's an actual sound blaster chip built into the motherboard's PCB. This feature allows you to use socket 1366 coolers, four-way SLI, and CrossFireX. Thanks to the X79 platform for included to the motherboard and 40 P PCI Express Lanes available.

Again, the extreme engine digi+ - I'll just let you pause and read that Japanese-made 10k black metallic capacitors rated at 105 degrees Celsius gain. You can connect a USB cable from your system to a laptop and overclock your system from the laptop. This feature prioritizes gaming network traffic CPU level ARPA's instant overclocking ROB connect. You can also monitor temperature voltages and fan RPMs. Volk commander led to this is some LEDs on the motherboard showing voltages being polled during post. It's also the ability to measure these voltages USB bars flash bag you can flash the BIOS from a flash drive when the motherboard doesn't have a CPU or memory installed.

Now for a look at what comes with the motherboard. The motherboard is a full copy of battlefield 3 in the card, and you get an awesome Republic of gamers case badge. First, there are instructions, a user guide, and a driver and software disk. Another case sticker is Quick Start Guide, for Q connectors don't connect to the USB cable. There are eight pcs SATA-2 cables, four SATA 3 cables, right angle connectors for X socket, exit backplate, and SLI connectors, so that looks like a two slot with three slot widths a 3-way SLI bridge.

The Motherboard Analysis

Now I'm moving on for a closer look at the motherboard. Starting in the top left-hand corner. There is a fan header next to a temperature sensor header and the Q reset button. This Q reset button cuts power to the CPU. It's an LM two feature, and it's for when the Ellen 2 mode jumper fails to work moving across. At the top of the motherboard, you can see the 8-pin ATX CPU power connector and another PD PWM connector. Next, we have the LED poster, which posts diagnostic corrodes error codes, etc. There we have another PWM fan header, and next to that, the Ellen to mode jumper and slow mode switch. I discussed these in detail in this Asus Rampage IV Extreme motherboard review. Okay, next to those, we have a start reset button. The PCI Express Lanes switches allow you to switch on and off the PCI Express Lanes, which is extremely handy when diagnosing a faulty graphics card. There we have the Go button. This button loads a specific bar settings profile. It's for instant overclocking and also acts as the MemOk button. When your system fails to boot due to incompatible memory settings, you press this button, set safe settings for the memory, and boot the system. We have the 24-pin motherboard power connector beside the right side of the RAM slots. Next, we have two more PWM fan headers, and between those is another temperature sensor header along the side here. We have a bunch of diagnostic LEDs and voltage read points.

Okay, so you can see they're in tiny print what the voltage read points and LEDs are for, but these are only these. You can see them between the voltage read points. They are the multi-minder LED and the voltage, both multi-mode LEDs refer to this feature, and LEDs turn on during post and show you which voltages are being polled. For this, the lousy voltage when overclocking the motherboard. So that you know which voltage is causing the problem. We have some more voltage read points beside the 24-pin ATX header. They also light up during post and show which components are being polled, CPU memory, and you can see VGA LED here. Okay, a little bit down, We have a USB-3 mid-board header. This runs off and has a media controller moving down. You can see a to solder ports the four black ones run directly off the X79 chipset and solder to two of the red ones run off the X79 chipset and saw the three and the other two side of three and run off and our media controller.

Now moving across the bottom of the motherboard, You can see all the front panel connectors. There are six USB-2 headers and another PWM fan header. You can see the two BIOS chips, each has a 64 Meg UEFI BIOS on it, and we have the BIOS switch button. You can see two more PWM fan headers for a total of eight on this motherboard, and between them, you can see another temperature sensor head out for a total of three on this motherboard. You can see a SPDIF header and above this is a jumper for enabling and disabling a little logo on this motherboard which I'll show you shortly. Then we have the front panel audio connector. Now moving up the left-hand side of the motherboard you can see the supreme FX 3 chip built into the motherboard's PCB, and this Republic of gamers logo lights up red and does these lines. You can see one going up. There is another one, that line going all out there lights up red. So that will look amazing when this thing is up and running.

It is an easy plug, giving the PCI Express slots extra power. Now, look at the PCI Express slot configuration. This platform allows 40 PCI Express Lanes direct from the CPU and all of those lanes have been dedicated to the red slots. The black slots run off the X79 chipset, which is X1 slots. All of the red PCI Express slots are PCIe-3. Slots 1 & 3 are wired at X16, and slots 2 & 4 are wired at X8. The graphics card configurations that you can run is a single graphics card in slot 1 at X16, 2 graphics cards in slot 1 & 3 at times 16, 3 graphics cards in slots 1, 2 & 3 at 16 times, 8 times, X16 times and for graphics cards in slots 1 2 3 & 4 at times 16 times 8 times 8 times.

Now, look at the cooling system on this motherboard. A large heat pipe goes up to the heatsink, and another is separate from that array. So underneath the south bridge heatsink for the X79 chipset. You've got this excellent heatsink up to the VRM section. Next, are memory slots connected to the heatsink on top of the motherboard, which is on the MOSFETs by another large heat pipe. So this gives you a bit more of a look at that. I'll give you a look at the height of the heat sinks. They're, and this one over is the same; this one is indeed not fine enough to be in the way. This motherboard has pink power phases for the CPU, 3 power phases for the VCCS a, and 2 plus 2 power phases for the memory. You can see the motherboard has 4 memory slots. They can take up to 32 gigabytes of 2400 megahertz. One channel DDR3 memory and just a look at the socket 2011. So there's a reasonable amount of space around the socket. Now looking at the back of the motherboard, you can see all of the heat sinks are screwed. There's a heatsink on the back of the MOSFETs and a look at the backplate.

Back I/O

Now for a look at the back I/O panel. Starting from the left. We have a combo PS2 port, two USB-2 ports, a reset button, and optical S/PD if the ROM connect button for more USB-2 ports for a total of six USB-2 ports on the back panel of the motherboard. There are 6 on the mid-board for 12 in total. The white USB-2 ports also act as the ROB connect port for USB-3 ports for a total of 6 USB-3 ports on this motherboard, 2 of them being on the mid-board. These will run off as media controllers eSATA ports, which run off the same as media controller that the two subs 3 ports do on the mid-board Gigabit LAN and the 8 channel audio that are gold-plated.

Ok, it's time for me to conclude Asus Rampage IV Formula Motherboard Review. This motherboard is another impressive addition to the Republic of gamers. There are certainly more overclocking features than gaming features on this motherboard. Still, I think this motherboard is perfect for a high-end gaming system and someone that wants to do some overclocking, even for professionals. Overclock is a lot of LN2 features about Republic of gamer's motherboards. I find that almost all of the features are useful. The diagnostic features are amazing, and if there's anything wrong with your system, you can find out very quickly on a Republic of gamers motherboard. Remember to check out the client build for build log to see this motherboard in action in a high-end water-cooled gaming system.
