  • R3E0534 (7zip) - beta
  • R3E0601 (7zip) - beta

  • R3E0704 (7zip) - beta
  • R3E0802 (7zip)
  • R3E0860 (7zip)
    1. Added additional memory enhancements
    2. Enable official support for ROG Expander Board
    3. Improved 3D performance at stock settings
    Notes:
    • Uncore setting will now scale with BCLK settings when set to Auto. Manual settings will be required when running BCLKs over 220 to ensure stability and improved BCLK rates.
    • LN2 Modes might need to be adjusted to improve cold clocking capabilities. Auto = LN2 mode 2, setting to LN2 Mode 1 will result in potentially better overclocking below -140C. This is dependent upon CPU quality and cooling.
  • R3E9124 (7zip) - BETA
    1. Added 2D SpeedBooster option for GulfTown owners
    2. Enable proper memory table reporting in 3rd party applications
    3. Improved 3D performance
    4. Tweaked LN2 Mode settings
    Notes:
    • 2D SpeedBooster option is for non-3D applications like SuperPI, WPrime, and other programs that benefit from enabling CPUMicroCode ignore flags in the BIOS. Enabling this option will improve 2D application scores but will decrease 3D performance. We highly suggest disabling this feature for any 3D applications or benchmarking.
    • This BIOS is still in Beta state and is released for those needing additional performance in 2D applications. We will have a final qualified version with improved memory and 3D performance shortly.
  • 0901 Official bios | Mirror: R3E0901 (7zip)
    • Might be unable to save settings if flashing from 0860. Solution: flash from 9124. Thanks to MaxXx (link)

Tips & Tweaks
  1. Incorrect rumour has it that the Marvell 9128 SATA3 6G ports can't be raided - this is incorrect. Gary Key (bingo13) from Asus outlines how you enable Marvell 9128 SATA3 6G raid on Asus Rampage III Extreme:
    By Bingo13 View Post
    RAID is supported on the Marvell 9128 SATA 6G chipset. In order to access the Marvell RAID configuration utility for SATA6G you must first enter the BIOS and set the SATA 6G option to 'AHCI'. Then you can save and exit the BIOS and during POST upon the reboot process press Ctrl+M to enter the Marvell RAID configuration utility.
  2. Problem:
    By Brama
    I had a negative experience with 0095.
    Pushing an overclock a little over stability edge, caused the impossibility to reboot, even unplugging AC from mains. When you pushed the ON button on the PC, it started for about one second and after it shot down by itself.
    Solved removing the cmos battery for a while and clearing cmos with the rear button.
    Solution:
    By donmarkoni
    About that issue with powering on then off in a split of a second, I had it too, but can't remember why it happened (twice). It has a cause, that's for sure.
    My solution was to hold a button for 2-3 (but not 4) seconds and the system would remain powered on. Don't go in BIOS, let it boot, then restart and go in BIOS. That's it IIRC.

testing the R3E

Just started to test the R3E after putting it in the new MM case...

I guess I am not a true bencher..I don't take it to the Extreme..Just WCing but i do have fun...

I LOVE THIS MB!!!!!!!!!!!
This MB will let me push it harder than any I have used...Here it is in the MM case:



with the P6T7 or the R2E I could only get to around 4.5 running Vantage.

With the R3E I can run Vantage at 4.572 and maybe higher..No wall yet!!! Got to be the board ..same ram and 980X. only thing differnt is the 2 WD 600 raptors instead of 2 300 V raptors in raid 0..This is my best single card Asus 5870 score and cpu speed:



3D05 was also a new CPU high and single card score...Can't be the ambients because it is Hot in Florida...Just started to test the MB and case is closed up...Ran this at 4.696...Before about 4.650 was the max...vcore was set a 1.44 but goes to 1.48..not really sure why...such a noob!!!



3D06 was also a new CPU high..4.630...I have run 4.6 before but hit and miss...I think i can take this further...

I have alot to learn about all the options the R3E offer..I know I'm like a pimple on you guys arse when it comes to benching but I like to show stuff here..You always cover all the latest...
Here is my last pic:

here is 3d06 at 4.665..Just a few points more but i think the 5870 may be the bottleneck with this...I have never run this fast on water running 3D06:


also running 3D05 at 4.727..I notice that even though i set the vcore for 1.44 it goes to 1.46..I am sure there is something i don't understand in the bios...should i worry about that? qpi is 1.39 and pll is 1.83
The score for 05 is lower but that is the 5870 i believe


forgot to mention..The first R3E I had, had to be returned because of the NB high heat...( earlier post) I reseated the complete NB/SB and still ran 70's...The new MB runs low 40's and is great...
BEST MB I have ever used!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

CRAP, I think this needs to go over to the results thread..George, can we move it all or do i need to re-write it??? sorry...

Moved post for ya

Sweet just the results I like to see - H20 cooled hehe. How's max bclk on the board ?

so you have to return the first board for high NB temps!

Yup!!! I tried to reseat it all..Not sure what it was..Nothing looked warped...But on the GOODside..The new board is the Chit...

Haven't did a max yet..I was just giving the new rig a push yesterday and came away with more than ever before...

It is pre-filled with my 4.4GHz 24/7-to-be settings (as a reference).

A few pictures of the board (to prove I really have it )



Great thing about it is TWO BIOS CHIPS! With a switch or BIOS selection you can use either one. Can have to different BIOSes.

Cooling is great! Some say it is not so good, but I'm achieving lower temps with less fans then with my good old DFI UT X58.
If having high temps, people should check how tight heat sink fixing screws are.

Overclocking wise, first impressions are that I'm achieving same stable clocks with far less voltage.
And THE BEST THING: My Mushkin memory is working faaaaaar better then on DFI. It's actualy working fine @ default voltage @ default settings, no need for higher V. It is fully stable even @ 1680 6-7-6-18-1T which was unachievable before.

More to come...

Here are the BIOS files:

R3E0402 (7zip) - official
R3E0531 (7zip) - beta
R3E0534 (7zip) - beta
R3E0601 (7zip) - beta

No need for BIOS flashing utility (but there is one on official site), all you need is there in the BIOS itself, just put files on the USB mem stick.
