ASUS ROG Rampage V Edition 10 motherboard

After 10 years of manufacturing the Rampage series of motherboards from Asus, the brand has decided to commemorate this date with the launch of a commemorative motherboard based on the RAMPAGE V but with certain improvements that make it unique among its class.

The ASUS RAMPAGE V EDITION 10 combines the best of the RAMPAGE V and a host of new features very focused on Chroma lighting to provide incredible customization capabilities that the most enthusiastic pc gaming enthusiasts are sure to love.

As you can imagine, we are talking about a fairly exclusive product that will not be available indefinitely, since these motherboards will only make a certain number of units that, although the number has not been known, ASUS already said that it was not a product. that they were going to have in the catalog for a long period of time.

Before continuing we would like to thank COOLMOD for giving us the motherboard to perform the analysis.

Packaging and Accessories

Although in the introduction we told you that this motherboard is a special edition of ASUS, its box is not something that is very normal, even when we talk about the RAMPAGE series. The box is quite large and when you pick it up it is very heavy, and there you already realize that it contains certain surprises inside.

On the outside we find a black box that does not give much information about the motherboard, but is based more on elegance and aesthetics. That if it emphasizes the four most important features such as the X99 Chipset, the possibility of four graphics both in SLI and CrossFire, and the Intel socket 2011-v3.

Once you open the lid, you find a presentation of the motherboard that you can see behind a transparent plastic, thus giving you a complete image of the product in front of you. The plate is embedded in a very thick padding, and as you can see in the image. As a curious fact it does not have an anti-static bag like other plates, thus giving it a very good presentation. As for the padding, it is so well fitted that it even cost us to remove it from it, something that deserves to be mentioned, due to the level of finish that they have put in the presentation of this RAMPAGE V EDITION 10.

Now, the thing does not end there, we still lack an endless number of accessories that the motherboard brings, and when we remove the padding that includes the motherboard we find a cardboard organizer that brings all kinds of accessories for the motherboard base and that we leave you in a list, since it would be very long to explain all the accessories included with this motherboard.

At this point, we are going to have to put a huge table of specifications of this RAMPAGE V EDITION 10, and this motherboard is one of the most complete and with more specifications in the domestic market, something that we can already imagine because It is for Intel's Extreme platform and also a very exclusive product.

In the table that we have put up here, we should include the included accessories that we already detailed in the previous section of the analysis.


We could test this motherboard with another team that was sent to us from COOLMOD. Said equipment has 32GB of RAM (Corsair Vengeance), an Intel i7 6920K Broadwell-E processor with LGA 2011v2 socket, a GTX 1080 graphics card, a 512 GB Samsung EVO 950 M.2 main unit and two Corsair Neutron units of 500GB in RAID 0.

In a week of testing, we were able to test how incredible this motherboard is, which combines the extensive features it has with the lighting system, which is integrated into the back of the board, the chipset heatsink and the PCIe ports. And that we can leave activated even with the PC off.

Ok, but I'm only talking about lighting and customization, but talking about the characteristics is complicated, because it has so many that it would surely leave me something along the way. So I'm just going to tell you about the experiences of the things that most caught my attention.

After the lighting, another thing that I love is the connectivity, whether I'm talking about Bluetooth or the WiFi antenna that allowed me to connect the equipment quickly with my mobile and the internet connection.

ASUS ROG software is also a delight that allows us the RAMPAGE V EDITION 10 to be able to overclock in a very controlled way and at the same time monitor everything that we connect to the motherboard, be it fans, the LEDs included in the motherboard or the LED strips that we can connect to the motherboard through the exclusive connector for this purpose, which also allows us to configure the lighting of the box from the same software.

All this makes it the most complete motherboard I have seen to date, and I am talking about motherboards intended for the domestic sector. Where ASUS has done a great job, and has really achieved what in our view it intended, which is neither more nor less than creating an exclusive motherboard commemorating the 10th anniversary.
