Rampage VI Extreme (LGA2066, Intel X299) - info, experience, BIOSes etc.

Intel public HEDT CPus with platfrom Intel X299 at Computex 2017. The CPU reviews are still under embargo for short time ,-). But some informations are officially out and OK with Intels NDA.

Intel X299 is really highend chipset for enthusiast CPUs. This year very powerfull, much more than anyone hoped. Because this year is AMD also very strong at CPU side (Announced not only 8 cores with SMT, but also up to 16C with SMT for AMD X399), Intel will launch step by step 6C/12T, 8C/16T, 10C/20T....Everything?:) Nooo, continue it with 12C/24T, 14C/28T, 16C/32T and new flagship 18C/36T !!!


New LGA2066 will be new one after 2011v3...Great value is, you can put in two generation CPUs. More info bellow.
1) Kabylake-X with new CPUs Core i5 X a Core i7 X. Those CPUs are KabyLake-X. Its basically Kabylake with more capacitors and bigger heatspreader. This could help with higher overclocking than classic Kabylakes. Kabylake-X have support only for dualchannel mode (up to 2666 MHz 1.2V). After XMP mode or manualy tweaking you can except everything between 3600 MHz to 4400 MHz at DRAM effective frequency.
2)Skylake-X, are HEDT processors Core i7 X and new Core i9 X. Starting as 6C/12T and up to crazy 18C/36T
There is support for Quadchannel memory. Based at first results on web, the memory clock we can expect overclocking of RAM around 3200 to 3800 MHz. All depends on type of memory chips, quality of IMC particular piece of CPU.

APEX series replaced Extreme series in extreme overclocking segment (yes, all fans of DICE, LN2 and LHe are focus directly at this board). This board broked many WRs after first day 🙂 There is example with informations about records from 31.5.2017.

Rampage Extreme is for enthusiast, wattercooling setups, casemodders etc. Strix series is ideal part for daily overlcocking (of course, it can handle LN2 too !) and gamers, streamers...

Rampage VI Extreme - eATX size

-looks awesome, the rainbow AURA effects! But there is also small display for current information about CPU clock, temperatures or speed fans...

The motherboard support again up to 128 GB DDR4 DRAM in up to quadchannel (depends at your CPU - if KB-X or SK-X). In right upper corner are helpfull buttons START, RESET, PCIe and DIMM switchs. Also switch for slow mode, retry and safe button, RGB header and also great ROG DIMM.2 slot for NVMe M2 discs. So Extreme can be realized with Liquid Nitrogen also, if is it your hobby sometimes 😛 Look at crazy numbers of voltage meassuring points.

At the bellow are button to swicth the BIOS (two BIOSes here), many USB ports, MEM OK, again RGB header. Under frontplate near the PCH is place for next M.2



-part of IO. The IO shield is integrated and from left to right there are CLR CMOS button, BIOS Flashbakc button, Wi-Fi+BT device with support 802.11ad standard! Many USB3/3.1, LAN, audio outputs with backlight


-Rampage in the glory 🙂

After the lastest BIOS update (1401) there is no more option to dissable Intel Virtualization Technology in BIOS. This option was removed or moved elsewhere from Advanced settings section?

Hi All

My VI is on order along with the I9 7980X, regarding the DIMM_2 socket it looks the same size a the ram socket in which case I was wondering if the Koolance RAM-33 Water Block could be slightly modded to fit over 2 Samsung 970 pro`s. I know these are no longer made but I have one from some years back that I never used.

Has anybody managed to water cool the DIMM_2 with 2 M.2 drives ??

Looked up the extreme on new egg for giggles. Aparently it is so rare sellers are trying to get rid of for up to 1,700 USD. What is going on? Haha

Yeah it's silly. Best I've seen is $750. When I bought mine for $600 new I think, I thought that was high. I guess it's aging like a fine wine lol

Hi, I have a delidded 7980xe running watercooled on my Apex 3105. I have been able to run the system between 4,4 GHz - 4,6 GHz. However once in a while instabilty issues occured.
Therefore I simply went back to default and have been happy up to now. However I want to give it a try again. Is there a basic OC guide on this page? I am not looking for gaining the last 50 Mhz, but a stable 4,4 GHz with lowest power drawn as possible was fine. I have searched many sites, but have not really found something useful. Id like Speed step to turned on. Lowering voltage and multiplier if in idle.

Hi there,
Others more knowledgeable on me will probably chime in, until then I will try to help you. When you say once in a while instability issues occurred - how often, and what were you doing at the time on the pc when it happened? Need as much info as we can to help here - list your settings in bios voltages etc, and any other tweaked settings.

Generally as I am sure you know overclocking is always about compromise at some point - some chips just won't plat ball past a certain point. I would personally try playing with the voltage for the chip at overclock settings - try upping it by a very small amount, and then test for stability - see how long it takes to fall over when doing the same things as last time, and then up the voltage by another small margin until you get stability or temps become too much to control. You also need to remember that when overclocking it can make windows less stable, and the smallest thing like a slightly flaky driver can tip it over the edge. Stick with it, and keep trying - it takes time and patience to find the golden spot.

Hope this helps - btw there are plenty of good overclocking guides on the ROG site, and elsewhere - google is your friend, do some research as knowledge always helps.

Thanks for your reply. My first OC was a Pentium 166 MMX with 200 MHz. But the amount of options today just overwhelms me. To be honest, I have hoped for something like "Leave all untouched besides those four options. Use the following settings for those options. After that only adjust multiplier and voltage and test." 😄

I guess that is not what the Apex is made for. 😞
