Asus Rampage III Extreme Motherboard gives you low-level information overload

PC enthusiasts love any tool that gives them insight into what their computers are doing. They’re likely to pull out a multimeter and check a system’s voltages just to find ways to tweak their machines for even more speed. At least one company is looking out for them.

The Asus Rampage III Extreme Motherboard sports software that will give you system voltage readings and all of the other features you’ve come to expect from a high-end LGA1366 board. ITShootOut has the review:

Eagle eyed readers will notice that the Asus ships with not one but two eight-pin 12V Aux connectors. If you have a suitable power supply this allows you to improve the voltage being supplied to the CPU.opo If that still isn’t enough power for your overclocking exploits you can add even more via two further 4 pin Molex connectors; one above the primary PCIe slot and one right at the bottom of the board. Whilst these are appreciated their placement doesn’t exactly lend itself to tidy cable routing.

Well if you ever wanted to feed lots of power into a motherboard this should be your next choice.
