The Rampage V Edition 10 from ASUS is a product, which is close to perfection. Of course expectations towards a new flagship motherboard from ASUS are high but in the case of this board the vendor didn't fail. There is simply an armada of features and extreme overclockers will be happy as well. Usually when ASUS is launching a new high-end motherboard you can be rather sure, that it's going to be by far the most expensive board when compared to the competition. Well, with this board that's precisely the case. ASUS is asking 580 Euro for this board, which is really a lot. Nevertheless the RGB lighting in combination with the mostly black design make this board look beautiful all the time.   - Design

Layout   + -

Basically the ASUS Rampage V Edition 10's Layout has been very well structured and it's difficult to squeeze more features, especially useful overclocking features, on an EATX motherboard. Once more practical are the angled SATA connectors as well as the power- and reset-buttons. There is also a debug display which is very useful in case you should have issues with a component in your system or the board itself. Apart from that there is also a new safe boot as well as a retry onboard. Both these buttons will be useful if you choose to overclock or even extreme overclock your system. Also the placement of the PCI-Express x16 is very well chosen. There is a total of four full sized PCI Express slots and all of them support PCIe Gen 3.0. In this case it is possible to build a Quad SLI/CF setup without running into issues. Furthermore there is one SATA Express port as well as a M.2 slot.

  - Angled SATA connectors - 4 x Full-Size PCI Express x16
- Power/Reset-Button onboard
- Debug display
- Space around the CPU socket
Performance   + -
A closer look at the performance of the Rampage V Edition 10 shows, that this board ranks first in our 3D performance comparison while in the 2D charts it achieves 8th place. We would have expected this board to be quicker in our 2D benchmarks. On another note we had a look at power consumption and in this case we clearly see that we have a board here that has been equipped with many additional chips, which in the end means, that power consumption is high and energy efficiency is not its strength.   - 3D performance - Power consumption
Overclocking / BIOS   + -
As you might have expected from ASUS you get an excellent BIOS which offers not only a boatload of tuning and tweaking options but is also very easy to use. Though ROG themed BIOS always comes with a touch that's a bit more technical it's still very well structured and it won't take long until one understands what's where.   - Clear arrangement - Sheer amount of options  
Recommendation   + -
Should you be looking for a high-end overclocking motherboard, then the Rampage V Extreme is simply a great choice. Obviously you should have the necessary cash, since this board is no bargain.   - Overclocking
- Enthusiast

We give the ASUS Rampage V Edition 10 excellent 4 out of 5 stars.
