Totally ASUS provided the Rampage IV Extreme with eight angled SATA ports which should be enough for any office gaming system or overclocking setup. You'll also find practical onboard power- and reset-buttons. There even is a debug display which is be very useful if you should once have issues with one of the components in your system. Also in this area of the board there are measure points to read out the different voltages. Almost standard for the ROG Extreme motherboards meanwhile is the possiblity to disable the different PCI-Express x16 Slots one by one. Between power/reset button and the DIMM slots one can find the headers to which you can connect the cables you soldered to a GPUs voltage regulation.


Totally you'll find eight fan header on the Rampage IV Extreme which is more than enough, to provide a well equipped high-end or overclocking-system with fresh air. The fan headers are located around the CPU socket as spread over the motherboard
