older rampage iv windows 10 support

Greetings AOG,

I'm currently using a Rampage IV Extreme motherboard (bf3 edition) with a Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3930K CPU @ 3.20GHz, 3201 Mhz, 6 Core(s), 12 Logical Processor(s), I have been greeted with the new Windows 10 reserve offer, I'm currentlty using Windows 7 as the base OS with the base BIOs,
The reserve checker shows no issues with upgrading to the newer platform however I'm yet to see Asus give the green light on the upgrade path for Windows 10.

Ideally I'd like to know the following.


  • Will Asus support Windows 10 on older ROG Motherboards such as the Rampage IV (BF3)
  • What steps will need to take place for someone to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 with any driver/firmware changes.
  • What are the overall risks of upgrading from Windows 7 to 10. If for example Windows 10 fails to install or Asus doesn't provide the right drivers can I go back to Windows 7?


My Motherboard specs are as follows.


My Specs: ASUS® RAMPAGE IV EXTREME: INTEL X79, SOCKET 2011, R.O.G
Intel® Core™i7 Six Core Processor i7-3930K (3.2GHz) 12MB Cache
32GB KINGSTON HYPERX GENESIS QUAD-DDR3 1600MHz X.M.P(8 x 4GBKIT)

Note in the past I've had problems with X.M.P when upgrading to the newer BIOS. In the end the PC company decided to keep my BIOS on the factory new version.


Many Thanks
Oliver

I installed windows 10 Pro on my RIVE and my computer flys!! soooooooooooo much smoother than windows 7/8, Especially in games.
Same goes for my other 2 computers, I upgraded them to windows 10 and they are blazing fast now too. 😄

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND trying windows 10 to those who haven't already.
PC Specs:

Intel Core i7 3930k, oc @ 4.8Ghz 24/7
ASUS GTX 680 2GB @ stock
ASUS VG248QE 144hz Monitor
ASUS Rampage IV Extreme Mobo

I also upgrade to win10 from win 8.1. Everything works fine but i noticed that all browsers are very slow. I did after the upgrade a totally new installation (fresh installation). The problem with the browsers stayed. So i don't know what the problem is. In win8.1 everything works out fine.

win 10 sucks especially slow boot and shutdown that i experienced. win 8.1 is blazing fast boot, shutdown. also find win8.1 more responsive than 10.
