Designed to break performance barriers, ASUS OC Socket utilizes extra pins to connect a proprietary circuit to contacts found on Haswell-E's land grid array (LGA). Combined with our customized UEFI, this exclusive feature enables higher DDR4 memory frequencies, lower latencies and enhanced stability while overclocking, extending all the way to extreme overclocking conditions, such as Liquid Nitrogen (LN2). OC Socket is 100% compatible with new Haswell-E LGA 2011-v3 CPUs, ensuring the ideal combination of overclocking performance and compatibility.
Cache bus links areas such as CPU cores, DDR4 Memory Controllers, System Agent and the shared L3 Cache. It is a critical interconnect for the whole CPU subsystem. Higher Cache Bus frequency directly gives faster total sub-system performance. ASUS OC Socket exclusively provides an adjustable cache bus voltage to reach higher cache bus frequencies.

This is the first platform to support DDR4 memory, and it is capable of overclocking memory up to DDR4 3300+ MHz with all eight DIMMs fully loaded! ASUS-exclusive T-Topology circuit design plus patent-pending OC Socket unleash the full potential of DDR4 by minimizing crosstalk and signal reflections. Thanks to our expertise in motherboard layout design, signal timing issues are also greatly reduced, resulting in improved stability and overall performance. ASUS works with almost every DDR4 memory vendor to ensure the best compatibility – so you're assured reliable performance from your favorite brands.
Enjoy the DDR4 benefits with Rampage V Extreme. (DDR4:DDR3)
Get your hands on real-time system monitoring and tweaking in two modes. For both, a clear 2.6-inch display keeps you informed and in full control — so you can maximize the available power!
OC Panel can be installed directly into a 5.25-inch drive bay to provide real-time monitoring of multiple vital parameters, including CPU temperature, ratios, base clock and fan speeds. The CPU Level Up button provides instant control over two-stage overclocking, while CPU fan speeds can be adjusted to Turbo, Standard and Silent modes — super-simple controls, all at your fingertips.
OC Panel can also be used as external overclocking console. In this mode, there are connectors and switches for exclusive ROG features including Subzero Sense, VGA SMB, VGA Hotwire, Slow Mode and Pause. You also have direct access to four-pin fans connectors – four in total! — as well as remote power and reset buttons.
ROG understands overclockers better than any other manufacturer — so Rampage V Extreme includes all-new hardware-level Safe Boot and ReTry buttons to help put things right when overclocking adventures go wrong. They're quick, easy and real time-savers!
Safe Boot Button
One quick tap of the Safe Boot button powers off your system and launches into Safe Mode, where you can tweak your retained previous settings.
If your system hangs during the power-on self-test (POST) boot process, just hit the motherboard's hardware-level ReTry button to force a reboot right away.
An extreme platform demands extreme control over the purest power, and nothing delivers more control or purer power than Extreme Engine Digi+ IV — Rampage V Extreme's exclusive voltage-regulator module (VRM).
MicroFine alloy chokes lower overall core loss for lower temperatures, while the VRM has been upgraded with the brand-new PowIRstage® IR3555. This chip integrates the driver, high-side and low-side MOSFETs and features the latest RDS On current-sensing technology.
Extreme Engine Digi+ IV's high-frequency pulse-width modulation (PWM) implementation scales to 1MHz allowing the DRAM VRM to achieve a 40% increase in stability!
An all-in-one driver, high- and low-side MOSFETs with built-in Resistance drain-to-source (RDSOn)-sensing technology
Alloy chokes constructed with 3X-smaller granules and more evenly distributed air gaps that increase the over permeability of the choke
Exclusive DirectCU cooling technology puts better conductive copper heat-pipes in direct contact with Rampage V Extreme's Extreme Engine Digi+ IV VRM zone to provide incomparable heat dissipation. Other designs merely prevent overheating — Rampage V Extreme with DirectCU goes up to 7℃ cooler.
The heat coming from the chokes and VRM zone is absorbed by the copper heatpipe and then dissipated through two large aluminum heatsinks for ultimate cooling.
Rampage V Extreme's three-piece X-Socket II makes easy work of mounting your existing liquid-nitrogen (LN2) or dry-ice evaporator pots to the latest LGA2011-3 socket. Use the supplied star screwdriver to replace the LGA2011-3 backplate with X-Socket II and you're ready to super-cool with your existing evaporator!
Rampage V Extreme has 8 x 4/3-pin (PWM/DC) combo fan connectors, four intelligent onboard sensors plus three additional 2-pin headers and a selection of three thermal cables to help you monitor the temperatures of up to seven motherboard or key components in real time — so you're able to adjust CPU and case coolers automatically or manually for the best dissipation.
Exclusive Fan Xpert 3 delivers complete information that allows you to take advanced control over each fan. Create your perfect balance between quietness, cooling and performance.
ROG knows the importance of flawless audio – pristine effects and full-range soundtracks make the game. That's why we invest substantial engineering resources to perfect onboard audio. The result is SupremeFX. Cutting-edge isolation technologies minimize electromagnetic interference (EMI) and exceptionally premium components deliver best-in-class audio that's as great as a dedicated soundcard. But we never rest on our laurels, which is why SupremeFX 2014 has been refined even further for Rampage V Extreme. That means even finer components and superbly clever software innovations for gaming and multimedia experiences beyond compare!

Rampage V Extreme features the very latest Intel® Ethernet for faster, smoother gaming — always. Intel's LAN has the serious double advantage of reducing CPU overhead and offering exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput. This significantly reduces the processor's workload, so there's more power for your game and your gameplay!
ASUS engineers used IxChariot, an independent network-assessment test tool, to determine just how much faster Intel Gigabit Ethernet deals with the smaller (sub-256 bytes) UDP data packets that are vital for responsive gaming. The results are in — and with Rampage V Extreme your game-data packets flow up to two times (2X) faster than competing gaming-LAN technologies!
ROG has reinvented the LAN port. Advanced signal-coupling technology and premium surface-mounted capacitors improve throughput, while surge-protected and electrostatically-guarded components (ESD Guards) protect your motherboard from lightning strikes and static electricity!
Exclusive GameFirst III has been upgraded with even more gamer-helping features and an interface that's even more intuitive! GameFirst III helps you to assign top priority to game packets and allocate more bandwidth to the game, ensuring the best online gaming experience.
Choose from a preset mode to suit what you're doing – Optimization, Game, Media Streaming or File Sharing. You can manage bandwidth down to the level of individual applications, with five priority levels and even the ability to block specific traffic. GameFirst III even has a built-in Network Monitor tool, so you can supervise your network traffic and test your connection speed to check that you're getting the bandwidth you pay for!
Fancy a free keyboard upgrade? That's what KeyBot gives you — instantly. Just plug your existing keyboard into the dedicated USB socket to activate the exclusive KeyBot microprocessor on the Rampage V Extreme.

With RAMDisk you can turn system memory into superfast temporary storage. Put large files, such as game maps, into RAMDisk and watch loading times fly — you'll never again wait to play. The improved 2014 edition of RAMDisk dynamically allocates memory, so unused RAM is released back to the system when it's needed. You'll even enjoy the bonus of protecting your SSD drives, as RAMDisk reduces excessive reads and writes that can reduce lifespan!
Last but not least, the junction function serves as quick links between files and RAM storage. All files are automatically saved and restored to their specific locations on hard drives when you turn your PC off, then go back to RAM when you power on again.
