Introduction   When it comes to the gods of ASUS ROG (Republic of Gamers) motherboards, we can only think of one right of the top of our heads. The Rampage Series takes the lead in many categories in terms of performance and stability, and with the newest X99 chipset from Intel, ASUS made no exception with the ASUS Rampage V Extreme motherboard this time around.

Today, we have a chance to put its newest edition to the test and see if ASUS can remain at the top of the list.
