It depends what you want to do with your card...
Rampage has a better sound, and mode overclocking features. It's more aimed toward gamers.
WS is a more "serious" mobo, with professional features like dual lan.
For the ram look for "low profile" modules, without a big heatsink.
But hyper 212 evo is not intended for LGA2011, you would have to buy a new one. If you have the money for a X79 platform, you should have $50 somewhere for a new cooler...

A Maximus board is a maximus board. Nothing beats it, literally.

Go for the formula and spend a little more and get a better cooler. :)

I saw that Evo its fine with a modest oc, and it's compatible with 2011.
Tell me if Asus is better than Asrock? in general, best components , best performance and quality please.

Depends on it's 'use' for Gaming the R4F or R4E (RIVE), the F4F has the best onboard sound. All of the ASUS X79 lines are very good so it's like splitting hairs.

Depends on your version of the CM 212 EVO, if the box lists LGA 2011 then you're fine, otherwise you'll need the LGA 2011 retention adapter ($6) - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Depends on the MOBO and number of DIMM slots populated. So the safest option is LP (Low Profile) RAM, and most folks on the LGA 2011 use 4x4GB DDR3-1600 CAS 9 RAM. Examples:

$88 G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (9-9-9-24 @ 1.50v) Model F3-12800CL9Q-16GBXL - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
$89 Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (9-9-9-24 @ 1.50v) Model 993995 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
$90 Corsair Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (9-9-9-24 @ 1.50v) Model CML16GX3M4A1600C9 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
- tad faster:
$110 Mushkin Enhanced Redline 16GB (4 x 4GB) SDRAM DDR3 1866 (9-9-9-27 @ 1.50v) Model 994051 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Specifically to the X79 platform only ASUS. You'd have to know the history specific to the X79 and SB-E to understand how infatic I am about ASUS. Some of non-ASUS examples: high vCore, high CPU core temps, instability and some recalls. ASUS has been immune to these problems. Other platforms and Chipsets ASRock and other MOBO Mfg's are fine.
