My ASUS Maximus V Formula Review. - Page 2

post #11 of 77
Thread Starter 
I absolutely recommend this board. It is very easy to OC it. The Fixes were for the CPU voltage error and the BCLK problem with ROG connect.

Ah alright thanks for all the information. Great review. I can't wait to make my build as the motherboard will be my center piece ^^ It looks so awesome. One more note it's only SLI compatible, right?

Great review, mate. thumb.gif Quite comprehensive. Sounds it will be a great board that will be worth the money I will be spending on it. ASUS just needs to release the darn board already!

From what I've read, it only supports NVIDIA SLI (two PCIe 3.0 x8 or PCIe 2.0 x16) and 3-way AMD CrossfireX. if you need more PCIe lanes, you'd have to wait for the Maximus V Extreme that releases "soon" after this product.

Ah okay thanks. That sucks that only NVIDIA SLI. The Maximus Extreme will cost way more though, right?

^ yup. How many GPUs are you planning to hook up to it, anyway (if you don't mind me asking tongue.gif )?

EVGA's Z77 FTW is also a good alternative if you need more PCIe x16 lanes. Been hearing it's a great board -to the point that it's really tempting a ton of guys to buy that (including myself) if they don't release this board soon enough. LOL. basically it's just $30 more than the MVF based on preorder pricing.

Oh trust me, the EVGA FTW can't come close to MVF, and add 30$ on top of that and you got clear loser.

^ Care to elaborate why? I'm really debating between the two boards myself, but I'm really leaning towards the MVF. Lol. tongue.gif
