In celebration of 10 years of ASUS ROG motherboards, the company today revealed the new Rampage V Edition 10, an X99 motherboard targeting the release of the Intel Broadwell-E processors that are also set to be announced this week at Computex. This new board has basically every feature and capability an ROG product and buyer could ask for, including more LED and LED control than I know what to do with.
Some more detail from the ASUS press release:
The Rampage V Edition 10 is a celebratory refresh of ROG’s flagship extreme-performance motherboard designed to let gamers and overclockers break every limit.
Based on the Intel® X99 chipset, the new motherboard sets new industry standards. It features the ultimate RGB lighting scheme with five independently-controlled onboard LED areas plus one 4-pin 5050 RGB header, and all can be synchronized by the all-new Aura software for stunning aesthetics. ROG has also teamed up with well-known RGB strip-makers and case manufacturers, including CableMod, IN WIN, Deepcool, BitFenix, and Phanteks — helping simplify RGB lighting compatibility and control.
The new motherboard is equipped with multiple ASUS exclusive features to aid extreme overclockers. These include Extreme Engine Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) for the cleanest, smoothest power, ASUS-exclusive T-topology technology for maxed-out DDR4 performance, and 5-Way Optimization for easy overclocking and fan tuning with one click.
The Rampage V Edition 10 also includes multiple technologies to deliver the best gaming experience. The included SupremeFX Hi-Fi audio amplifier ensures flawless audio, dual Intel Gigabit Ethernet and GameFirst combine forces for low-latency networking, and ASUS Safe Slot reinforcement for PCIe connectors to prevent damage from heavy graphics cards. The new board introduces a patent-pending integrated I/O shield for style, easier construction, and enhanced durability. There’s also a slew of onboard storage and connectivity options, including U.2, M.2, USB 3.1, and 3×3 Wi-Fi.
According to a post on an ASUS sub-site, the board will retail for $599 and should be on the market very soon!
Audio solution looks so
Audio solution looks so good. The separate device means no need to buy a USB DAC (for the noise isolation), which in my case would save me about $300, making this board’s hit to the wallet a little more acceptable. 🙂
I’m glad mobo makers like
I’m glad mobo makers like ASUS and MSI are going the option of LED to help customize your system colors rather than them deciding for you with color schemes that are hard to change or simply don’t fit.
We’ve seen some awful colors in the past but now the end user decides themselves.
Patent pending IO Shield?
Patent pending IO Shield? They just encased the IO in plastic…
I think the I/O shield is
I think the I/O shield is made of metall, so it functions as a heatsink connected with a heat-pipe. But what im most curuis about is if I can throw some nice acryl heatsinks from ekwb on that…
There is no need to shield
There is no need to shield I/O in metallic ATX cases.
It is just a plastic box to print marketing sh!t…
Honestly saddened by the
Honestly saddened by the inclusion of an audio solution over that of a more relevant nature to the brand, such as the OC Panel II. Which in turn is supported but you have to pay extra for it.
