The title states its a Maximus but the first paragraph says its a Rampage. Which is it!?
I have the Maximus Extreme X38 board and its VERY good. Hopefully this will be more of the same
It's Maximus, sorry!
i like the color scheme, but i wonder what's under that extra heatsink...
So it's got six angled SATA ports, two upright SATA ports in the middle of the board that look like they're labelled 'SATA_ODD1/2' and two upright SATA ports labelled 'SPD_HDD1/2'...
Overall, I quite like the look of the board.
I just want to know what 'SPD_HDD' means - is overclocking your HDDs the order of the day now?
I would guess the "Extreme Engine" is a development of the EPU-6 engine.
Taken from asus.com: "The new ASUS EPU - the world´s first power saving engine........" - that was for version 6.
lol is it bad lighting or does it look like the lower end has been too close to a fire?
Seem to have had quite a few revisons from the preview board. I note:
-Lowered 'NB' hs to not block the top slot
-2 white SATA ports under RAM
-2 chips over the SB hs (6g SATA hopefuly?)
-No IDE or Floppy ports!
Would of been nice to have all the SATA ports 90' down the edge. Also I only see one BIOS chip. No dual BIOS? But otherwise looking good!
That's to identify which of the SATA ports supports the "Speeding Hard Disk" feature.
Which does what, precisely?
Just to prove that we do talk to each other in the office, you can also read Rich's preview of the
Asus Maximum III Formula that he did ages ago here:
Speeding Hard Disk is the hardware RAID controller - driverless, on-the-fly RAID setup.
Ah, thanks. Somehow seems less impressive than it implies. Driverless RAID might be interesting for those who can't be bothered to fiddle around setting up RAID arrays, though.
wow looks purty, I think that will be the board I use for my next build, do all P55 board support SLI and Crossfire? or only some and if so does this one support both, if you mentioned that already and I completely overlooked it then ya my bad ^^;
very interesting board...... great colours and features.
would be nice to have a lower priced version without all those noobie addon such as OC station and Mem perfect
Looks like the Foxconn Blood Rage.
I read 'what this idiot has had' and hit the link in anticipation of some spectacular fail. I was disappointed. All the guy was doing running his grand national on a dyno.
Someone jealous, you don't have to hide it.
