ASUS Rampage III Extreme 32 Megapixel high-res photo

According to ASUS the Rampage III Extreme is "Designed for those who know the Dark Art of Overclocking". It comes equipped with all features that overclockers dream of, and also has new stuff like ROG Connect for example.
The board supports CPUs for Intel Socket 1366, which means Core i7 including Gulftown (yes, I asked). As chipset Intel's X58 and ICH10R is used like on the Rampage II Extreme. ASUS has routed 32 PCI-Express 2.0 lanes to the PCI-E x16 slots, so you can either run x16+x16, x16+x8+x8 or x8+x8+x8+x8 - all without the added heat and latency of NVIDIA's nForce 200. As we hear this does make quite a difference in a 4x HD 5870 configuration for example. Major improvements have also been made to the power solution which is now 8-phase digital 250 - 1000 kHz. Of course support for USB 3.0 and SATA 6 Gb/s is included as well.

While exact details are not known, the price of the board will be "highest priced ROG" - my guess is around $400, with availability starting around the Gulftown launch which should be some time in March.

Skinny heatsinks usually overheat, and with sata 6 and usb 3 i might get it instead of the E762
And evga board is just for marketing and fit, i will never pay 1000usd for a overclocked 920 (cof cof 975 cof)
:roll::laugh:

Great looking mobo, also it's about damn time mobo's started including blue tooth onto the mobo ( really sick of having to use an adapter, to use my headphones, and my key board )! As well as the extra PCI slots. I just may be swapping my classified for this, I loved the rampage 2, but the shotty execution, and problems with the bios, was a deal breaker for me, I do hope they can make this one work alot bette rout of the box.

For X58+ICH10R, that heatsink is more than sufficient. The chipset no longer houses the memory controller, so you'll almost never be playing with its voltages.
Ive never heard of X58 heatsinks overheating without a few nf200 chips under them.
