    Foxconn Blood Rage or Asus Rampage extreme II ?

    I really love Asus, all my previous motherboards have been the striker extreme and now the rampage extreme, they rarely failed on me. Now im looking at the foxconn blood rage and it looks fantastic but in your opinion which is the better board?

    What cooling? If it's air then there will be hardly any difference

    Probably the coolermaster V8. So its just a case of which brand you like more?

    Re: Foxconn Blood Rage or Asus Rampage extreme II ?

    You had a Striker Extreme that didn't fail? You're a one in a million, you can probably buy whichever you like and get away with it. If I were buying an i7 board it'd probably be a Biostar Tpower. I normally recommend Biostar, DFI and Gigabyte and mainly use Gigabyte, but Gigabyte i7 boards have the PCIe 16x slots too close together.

    Yeah it never really failed on me until i came to sell it, then everything that possibly could go wrong did, but got it all sorted in the end after days of frustration 8o|

    Re: Foxconn Blood Rage or Asus Rampage extreme II ?

    Ah yeah that sounds more like a Striker. Well, after 4/4 failures within warranty period I can't really be bothered with Asus, they just can't build stuff to last. If you upgrade every few months it's not so bad, but longer than about 6-7 months between uprades and you start going through the RMA chain which is just too much hassle. Other people say this about other brands but seriously, they usually start having minor defects rather than the catastrophic failure that plagues Asus boards when they get "old".
    (The boards I have owned are A8N-SLI SE (nf4,939), P5N-E SLI (650i,775), A8R-MVP (RX200,939) and Maximus II Formula (P45,775)

    Re: Foxconn Blood Rage or Asus Rampage extreme II ?

    I know the Bloodrage is what Hexus use and there review was indepth of it, give it a look over. Also Scan sell the GTi version fo the Bloodrage, which i assume is better as i didn't see the standard Bloodrage on there.

    If it's got a GTI badge it's bound to go faster

    I love the look of that board though, I'd buy it just for that

    I disagree with all this asus h8ing. My P5Q PRO has never had a problem, and my MW221u has never either.

    Re: Foxconn Blood Rage or Asus Rampage extreme II ?

    Well the Asus rampage 2 extreme does have 6 memory slots over just3 on the Foxconn Blood rage
    However the rampage 2 extreme is just a mess of colours and Blood rage just looks soo much prettier.

    Foxconn have been around a for while but only really in the OEM and consumer markets, it's only now that they are making a push into the high end "enthusiast" market

    Re: Foxconn Blood Rage or Asus Rampage extreme II ?

    Agreed, brand preferences aside, it usually bugs me when people moan about the 'fisher price' stylings of gigabyte boards. I would probably want to go for a six slot board, if only because it means the memory is a) double spaced for cooling and b) is guaranteed to fit alongside any cooler.

    Re: Foxconn Blood Rage or Asus Rampage extreme II ?

    Well colour does come into it depending on what you're planning to do with a build, if this is a pc that going to be shown off then the looks are important.

    But yes in greneral colour of a motherboard is right down the bottom of the list in terms of reasons to buy
    I only mentioned it as apart from the looks (not just the colour) and the ram slots they are fairly evenly ballanced in terms of features.

    Big question to my mind is price

    Re: Foxconn Blood Rage or Asus Rampage extreme II ?

    Never had an asus board fail on me once.

    I have the Rampage II extreme and it has a wealth of options and is pretty sound so far. I havent had any problems with it at all. Never tried (and i dont know anyone with) the bloodrage so i cant comment on it.
