Asus Rampage III BLACK EDITION, Intel X58 Motherboard, E-ATX, The Ultimate R.O.G X58 Motherboard has arrived!

The ROG Rampage III Black Edition motherboard is an evolution of the award-winning Rampage III Extreme, which set new world records in overclocking. Everything that made the Rampage III Extreme so great is back, but with a stylish black-themed design, plus many hardware and software improvements. Most notable is the supplied ROG ThunderBolt expansion card that enhances both LAN and audio performance. This incorporates an award-winning Bigfoot Networks Killer E2100 networking platform that automatically classifies and accelerates online game traffic for maximum networking performance. Class-leading XONAR audio technology also provides increased sound quality and a built-in headphone amplifier with adjustable impedance settings -- perfect for gaining the advantage on the competition when gaming. Combined, these two technologies provide gamers with a superior online gaming experience that is set to overwhelm the competition. Better yet, the ROG Rampage III Black Edition also comes with the ASUS GPU TweakIt utility, an upgraded feature combined in ROG Connect that allows gamers to modify the graphics card settings for the greatest visual impact.


Pro-class overclocking needs professional equipment. Extreme Engine Digi+ is equipped with high performance digital VRM design that can easily achieve the ultimate performance with adjustable CPU PWM frequency. It accelerates heat dissipation and achieves better electric conduction keeping critical components reliable.


ROG Connect provides monitoring and tuning options for every important parameter, in real-time, via a note book. ROG iDirect expands your options, allowing you to take control of voltages and frequencies with an iPhone or iPad. Bluetooth v3.0 + HS support enables smart connectivity to a variety of Bluetooth and wireless internet devices - no additional adapters required - allowing control through any PC, mobile or desktop. GPU.DIMM Post allows quick and easy check of graphics cards and memory DIMMs status in the BIOS detecting potential component failure before even entering the OS.

SLI/ CrossFire READY: Why choose when you can have both?

SLI or CrossFireX? Fret no longer because with the ROG Rampage III Black Edition you'll be able to run both multi-GPU setups. The board features SLI/CrossFire on Demand technology, supporting either 3-Way SLI or up to 4 cards in CrossFireX configuration. Whichever path you take, you can be assured of jaw-dropping graphics at a level previously unseen.

Kit Guru : Must Have Award

"The Asus Rampage III Black Edition X58 is one of the finest motherboards KitGuru has reviewed since we launched the publication a year ago. We thought the Gigabyte G1 Assassin was going to hold onto the `Number 1' position for a long time, but Asus have already bitten back with an astonishing product set to appeal to hard core performance oriented overclockers and gamers. Sandybridge might get all the headlines in 2011, but X58 is still the most powerful Intel platform"
