The Xeon's are NOT supported on the Rampage III Extreme. If you want the Xeon 55xx or 56xx then I would recommend either a SuperMicro or EVGA SR-2, the ASUS 'Workstation' MOBOs are okay.

My question is what purpose or use do you want Xeon?

I have no problems with the Xeon CPUs and I understand their Pro & Costs, and they are used for both Servers and Workstations and work very efficiently and with ECC RAM for mission critical computations and or in a Professional environment.
