Asus Rampage IV Gene Motherboard Review
The most severe grade motherboard for an M ATX system is still the Asus Rampage IV Gene Motherboard. The tiny ATX is that. LGA 2011 was used at the time of filming. Only the Intel Core Series 2nd generation may be used with this motherboard. That is Sandy Bridge, then. Ivy Bridge-e, a third-generation Core Series processor with six cores available in both Extreme and non-Extreme editions, will be available shortly. A number of things are supported by the Asus Rampage IV Gene Motherboard, including up to 32 gigabytes of RAM and two dual-slot graphics cards operating in SLI or crossfire. This little motherboard is powerful so that you can put anything else on it.
Let's go through each accessory. You may modify BIOS settings at the hardware level using a second computer and the ROG connect. Connecting a device like a laptop to the ROG, connect the USB port on the motherboard's back. Six SATA cables are available. As a result, three are straight, and three are at right angles. These are supported for operating at SATA-2 or SATA-3 speeds. The Republic of Gamers SLI bridge is designed to close this motherboard's complete PCI Express 16x slots to the two PCI Express 16x slots. We've got an I/O field like a pat on the back since this is LGA 2011 and for anyone who believes that LGA 1150 is bringing more than four DIMM slots or more than PCIe 8X by 8X SLI or crossfire capability. A user manual and the ROG Connect manual are excellent. A large sticker and the SATA HDI raid mode notification.
Main Key Features
- LGA2011 Intel® Core™ i7 Processor: The world's most powerful and energy-efficient CPUs are Intel® Sandy Bridge-E models. With integrated memory and PCI Express controllers to handle 4-channel (8 DIMM) DDR3 memory and 16 PCI Express 3.0 lanes, this motherboard supports the most recent Intel® Sandy Bridge-E CPUs in the LGA2011 packaging. This motherboard offers excellent graphics performance.
- Intel® X79 Chipset: The most recent single-chipset design that supports the 2011 socket Intel® CoreTM i7 Extreme Edition CPUs is the Intel® X79 Express Chipset. Using serial point-to-point connectivity, which boosts bandwidth and stability, enhances performance. For quicker data recovery, the X79 also includes 4 SATA 3Gb/s connectors and 2 SATA 6Gb/s ports, twice the bandwidth of current bus systems.
- PCIe 3.0 Ready: The most recent PCI Express bus standard, PCI Express® 3.0 (PCIe 3.0), offers enhanced encoding techniques and double the performance of PCIe 2.0. An x16 link's maximum total bandwidth is 32GB/s, double the 16GB/s of PCIe 2.0. (in x16 mode). As a result, PCIe 3.0 offers consumers previously unheard-of data rates along with the comfort and easy upgrade provided by fully backward compatibility with PCIe 1.0 and PCIe 2.0 devices. Users who want to enhance and optimize graphic performance and access the most recent technology will find PCIe 3.0 a necessary feature.
- SLI/CrossFire: CrossFireX or SLI? Relax, you can utilize both multi-GPU configurations with the ROG Rampage IV GENE. A quad-GPU SLI or quad-GPU CrossFireX configuration is supported by the board's SLI/CrossFire on Demand technology. Whichever route you choose, you can count on absolutely stunning visuals at an entirely new level.
- Extreme Engine Digi+ II: Maximum power consumes the use of premium quality components and clever digital design. The Extreme Engine Digi+ II has been improved and outfitted with the best 10K Black metallic capacitors produced in Japan. Additionally, the digital VRM architecture enables you to attain peak performance with programmable CPU and memory power management frequencies. Precise modifications improve overall system management, stability, and longevity performance—five times longer than solid capacitors.
- USB BIOS Flashback: It will never be that simple to update the BIOS. The most practical method of flashing BIOS to date must be USB BIOS Flashback! Without a doubt, USB BIOS Flashback offers overclockers the utmost ease! It enables overclockers to test their BIOS in the most basic manner imaginable. Insert the thumb drive into the ROG Connect connection and press the ROG Connect button for 2 seconds. The BIOS will be flashed automatically while the computer is in sleep mode without the need to access the BIOS or the operating system.
Motherboard Circuit Analysis
Besides, Asus reserves the best quality components for their republic of gamers, all good features. So much on a motherboard that inherently doesn't do that much more than another motherboard. Well, for one thing, especially when you're trying to build a smaller system class, using very high-quality components in the voltage regulation modules is incredibly important. So Asus is using 10k black caps rated for a hundred and five degrees celsius operation. So that means that in a cramped case, no matter what color, this system's bad stuff is going on. You are not going to be in a situation where it's going to be running out of spec, and it's not going to last for very long. You also have a little heat pipe connecting the various voltage regulation module components. Above and beside the socket, higher quality components reduce things like coil whine. For example, when you hear that noise and you're under load, that can be attributed to lower quality components. You get a better audio solution. Generally speaking, you get almost anywhere on an Asus ROG motherboard, but Asus provides a redline audio concept.
So you can see that instead of including as they did with supreme FX to a separate PCB riser card that goes into one of your PCI Express slots. They have a little illuminated red line that separates the sound card PCB on the motherboard from the rest of the PCB. There's an aluminum shield, and the sound processor is as far away from the other components as possible to reduce interference. Right there is a 1,500 microfarad-like massive capacitor in addition to the audio-grade capacitors elsewhere that compensates for a couple of things. If you have an explosion or something like that, it's drawing more power than normal. With a normal audio solution, you might see something like clipping, or it's unable to deliver enough power. Better audio solutions are something that I do helps justify a more expensive motherboard. You have your PCI Express 8-pin connector still in its ideal top location and the 24-pin connector in its right-hand location. This 24-pin ATX connector is more difficult if it does not have an ideal place, and it does take adding more layers to the PCB to maintain an optimal layout and still have it fit in a smaller form factor.
Now I did mention this is a bit of an older board. The SATA ports feel a bit dated at this point, but you've got 4 SATA-3 6 gigabit per second ports to running off the Intel chipset to running off a third party as media chipset, and then to say 2 to 3 gigabit per second ports. I probably should have mentioned that the CPU is entirely digitally powered. All the VRM is fully DIGI+ featured. I think they call it what is it DIGI Plus 2. That means you have all the tweak ability you could want; that's another thing you get with ROG motherboards. That you don't get with other motherboards will help you overclock better. There's another state of three SATA to three gigabits per second connector bottom of the motherboard, and that's the opposite of 3G. Then we've got our front panel connectors to the front USB-2 and onboard start and reset button, and the Go button switches. You can add this to your front audio connector, leading us to the PCI Express slot.
So dual PCIe 16x is wired only for 8x, which is wired for 4x. It supports up to DDR3 up to 2400 megahertz. You could fill this up with a full complement of graphics cards and other expansion cards. You would get very, very satisfactory performance indeed. However, you will have to overclock and move to the rear I/O. We've got eight USB 2.0 ports, a bit of an older board, two USB 3.0 ports, a clear CMOS button, the rog connect button, and bios flashback functionality, which is built into this motherboard. If you brick the motherboard, the power goes out in the middle of a BIOS flash. You can restore it simply by following the instructions on the issues website.
Optical digital audio out a PS2 port in Intel Nick. You can use that to prioritize game packets using the AI suite software and then 7.1 audio out and an e-SATA port. This motherboard is an older board that is still getting updated. It includes a copy of daemon tools standards, Kaspersky antivirus, and something like that. So there is a new sound radar or whatever they call it. It's a visual indicator on your screen that points out where sounds are coming from in-game in real-time. It's cheating as far as I can tell, but every advantage right has been added to supreme effects three boards, even older ones like this one, so you pair this up with an Ivy bridge-e processor and a couple of GTX Titans. You have one powerhouse of a system in a very small form factor.
