"We've been extremely impressed with the X99 chipset so far, and we can't deny the simple fact that if you're looking to build a true beast of a computer, it should be based around this chipset. Also, if the past has told us anything, it's that the ROG boards are some of the best money can buy."

ASUS Rampage V Extreme Review @ OCDRIFT

"In terms of overclocking performance, we would say that it was a breeze working with the Rampage V Extreme. With minimal tweaking applied we managed to squeeze our Core i7-5960X processor to a healthy CPU frequency of 4.5GHz therefore boosting its performance to a higher level. The ability to overclock memory adds another strong point to this motherboard. We were able to overclock our favourite DDR4 memory kits without a hitch. Thanks to the included memory presets in the BIOS, it really made our job done easily."
