Packaging & Unboxing
Like many of ASUS’s other high-end ROG boards, the Rampage Vi Apex comes in a glossy red and black box. The ROG logo holds down the top right corner, and the model is centered on the left.
The rear of the box is colorful, with a few full-color shots of the board in the center surrounded by highlights of important features.
One edge of the box has a few quick specs in several languages.
The other sides of the box have only the model and the ROG and ASUS logos.
The box lid is hinged and opens back to reveal a large sheet of ROG stickers.
The top of the lid inside has the ROG ‘eye’ logo and “WELCOME TO THE REPUBLIC” under it.
The sticker sheet is laying on top of a clear plastic lid covering the motherboard.
The board itself sits in a tray.
Under the motherboard tray is a box with all of the extras and ‘goodies’ inside.
As with all of ASUS’s top end offerings, the list of included bits is quite extensive. The usual rear I/O shield, driver disk, manual and SATA cables are obviously present. Specific items to the board are dual ROG Dimm.2 adapters, plus hardware to mount 4x M.2 drives, and two fan mounting brackets for them. Another fan mounting bracket is present for the VRM heatsink, as well as several blank templates for customizing the light up logo’s mid-board. Some RGB extension cables, and the WIFI antenna, as well as the front panel connector plug, are also present.
