Haswell-E – Intel Core i7 5960X Review
ASUS Rampage V Extreme
Evidently, a new Intel architecture involves a new chipset (X99), a new socket (LGA 2011-v3) and obviously a new ASUS motherboard from the Rampage Extreme series. In this case we are talking about Rampage V Extreme, a motherboard dedicated to enthusiasts but mainly to extreme overclockers. The motherboard is shipped in a suggestive package, decorated with the specific Republic of Gamers logo, and it comes bundled with everything we would ever wish for in order to build a high-end rig.
Among the accessories we can also find the inevitable overclocking gadget called OC Panel, the 3T3R antenna for the onboard Wi-Fi 802.11ac card, and also an extra backplate (X-Socket II) that allows mounting of LGA1366 coolers or LN2 / DICE pots.
