The ASUS RAMPAGE III Extreme is a X58 chipset based motherboard that was announced with the release of the Core i7 CPUs. This chipset has been targeted for the high end of the computer chipsets with support for the latest 6-core Core i7-980X processors and other LGA-1366 processors as well. This is one of those amazing motherboards that can support triple Channel Memory and can take up to 24GB of DDR3 memory.
The company has claimed that this motherboard can take DDR3 memory running at 2200MHz but in order to do so it has to be overclocked. The X58 chipset comes with 42 PCI Express lanes available in it. What this means is that the motherboard can divide the pci between two graphics cards at full speed that is 16x and it can still have space left over for USB 3.0 and SATA 6 Gb/s operating at full speed.
The SATA 6 Gb/second is the latest standard for SATA drives. SSD drives because of their their constant speed require much more bandwidth instead of HDDs that have spinning discs and operate at variable speeds. The SATA 6 Gb/second port will be capable of supporting data transfer speeds of up to 6 Gb/second as the name says. The new USB 3.0 ports offers up to 900microamps of power to the USB devices connected and has now multiplied the data transfer rate of the devices connected to it to almost 10 times taking it to 5Gb/second.
The CPU Level Up feature is a very simple process as one can automatically overclock the CPU with just a click of a button. The user is given a set of CPUs to choose from that the user wishes to overclock in the BIOS Setup screen. Once the changes to the settings have been made, one must reboot the system and the new Rampage III Extreme motherboard applies these settings without any problems. The Voltiminder LED is capable of displaying the voltage status for CPU, the NB, the SB and the memory. Also the Q-Fan Plus feature can automatically detects the temperature and adjusts the fan speed of the cpu in order to efficiently cool down the cpu and save power.
