Since the launch of the Rampage IV Extreme it’s been the backbone of our graphics card test rig here at OC3D Towers, so it’s fair to say that we know the ins and outs of it probably better than the ASUS R&D team. It’s been absolutely bombproof in its reliability, never minding the endless hardware swapping and mad bouts of overclocking we’ve subjected it to.

So you can safely say that when we cast our eyes upon the Black Edition we were amazed that there was far more going on than a merely palette swap. It would have been so easy to keep the reliable Extreme and switch the colour scheme, but ASUS have pared the board right back and released something so different, and yet the same, that if it was called the Rampage V we wouldn’t have batted an eye lid.
