ASUS’s top tier line of products is the Republic of Gamers line of products otherwise known as ROG. If you are purchasing an ROG product you know you are getting the best of the best and something that is going to last you a long time. With any line it is broken up into segments, Extreme being the highest, Formula being in the middle and Gene at the lower end. Today we will be taking a look at the Rampage III Formula board and from the name we know it sits in the middle. This is an Intel X58 board that has many of the features of its more expensive brother the Rampage III Extreme for a more reasonable price. Let’s take a look and see if this board is perfect for your next build!
Special thanks to ASUS for providing us with the Rampage III Formula Intel X58 Motherboard to review.
The Rampage III Formula comes in a nice retail box like most of ASUS’s ROG products. The front of the box has a Rampage III Formula logo on the back there is a long list of features and specifications. The front of the box lifts up and goes into more detail about the features of the board. When you lift up the top of the box you can actually see the motherboard too.
Inside of the box you will find 2 boxes, one that hold the motherboard and another that holds the accessories. You do get quite a lot of accessories with the Ramapge III Formula, they include high quality SATA cables, a 2 port USB 2.0 / eSATA module, ROG USB connector cable, 3-way SLI bridge, optional fan, I/O shield, cable ties, Qconnector and the drivers and utility CD.
