Asus Rampage V Edition 10 (X99) Motherboard Review

We will be outlining the Asus Rampage V Edition 10 motherboard’s performance with the Core i7 6950X CPU and 32GB of 3200MHz G.Skill TridentZ DDR4 memory.

LED-lighting

By default, the Rampage V Edition 10 motherboard applies an aggressive multi-core turbo (MCT) state and forces the 6950X to a constant 4.0GHz when XMP is enabled. This is representative of what motherboard vendors perceive to be the maximum all-core stable CPU operating state, as guided by the Broadwell-E CPUs’ Turbo Boost 3.0 operations.

Stock-CPUZ

Asus uses around 1.25V for the force-turbo setting. This is a decent level that even mid-range CPU coolers can handle.
