Asus Rampage III Extreme Test System

Today I’m using the usual set of components from my X58 test platform. I’m using a Xeon w3570 set to Core i7 920 speeds, Corsair Dominator GT 2000C7 2GB modules set to 1866 7-8-7-20-1T, an Asus HD 4890 using the 10.1 Catalyst drivers, and an HX1000 powering the entire setup. Windows 7 Professional x64 was used with the normal set of tests with comparison data from the EVGA X58 Classified and Gigabyte X58A-UD7. It should be noted that the Rampage III Extreme never had a set RTL for the memory. On each reboot it changes slightly but on this run it set to 55-57-58 which is slightly tighter and matches the EVGA Classified while the Gigabyte X58A-UD7 ran 57-59-60.
