^^ The OC Formula has the ability to watercool the VRMs and comes stock with a 40mm fan on the heatsink. I have the fan turned off and no watercooling and it's only warm to the touch. Watercooling would just be pointless.

If ur gonna water cool gpus and dont mind 8x8x then id have to suggest the MVG...

You can find them used for 130$ = 150$

LoL just do not put that MATX board in a HUGE case lol.

8x pci-e 3.0 is = pci-e 2.0 16x anyway...You're not gonna bottleneck that bandiwidh with two gpus unless you get two Titans and overclock them violently. If anything you take a 2% performance hit even then. rolleyes.gif

My thoughts exactly...unless you wanna use a pci-e riser to put a card there, but it's gonna take a performance hit. (unless you're a miner like that Minecraft guy) wink.gif

....as already stated, the MVE (with Plex and 5 PCIe) is a 'specialty board', but it (and for that matter its very similar Rampage 4 X79) come with some unique features that I find highly useful.

First, the PCIe slots

...both the MVE and the Gigabyte Z77 counterpart, the UP7, are geared towards two sub markets (and we happen to fit both here). The first is the 'speed' market, what with LN2 profiles on the MVE / Rampage IV X79, voltage read-out points, OC key for overlay and OF COURSE over-volting features for multiple VGA cards (hard-wired PLUS BIOS)...what is also great is the ability to switch off lanes on the board, without taking extra cards out...when you run tri-SLI and quad-SLI, and water-cool, you'll have a serious jungle of power cables and cooling tubes that can get in the way of moving things around...never mind the Bios profiles of those boards which can be a bit overwhelming but nonetheless, if you are into speed - that's what you want.

...the second sub market is actually a small but growing niche of 'semi-commercial'...given the price of these boards, they end up in the 'WS Work Station' market as well. When 'I am done with the fun' re both the MVE Z77 and Rampage IV X79, they'll be moved to a Virtual Machine (VM) complex that already includes 6x 3770 (non-K) machines...the extra PCIe lanes become very handy there as hub machines that will get PCIe cards with 4x Intel 10 Gigabit NICs each and Hard drive clusters (LSI cards)...still too early in the game to figure out if our type of proprietary software can also be easily ($ cost) enough re-written to benefit from 'Tesla' / Intel Phi type co-processing - but for either, we again would need extra PCIe slots.

There is no doubt that boards like the ROGs M-V-E and R-IV-E are not meant for the main stream - ditto for the Gigabyte UP7...but they do have market(s) nonetheless, and are very much appreciated

2% is 2%

An im speaking of pci-e 3.0 x 16 vs pci-e 3.0 x8.

I need every bit of power out of my Gpu's / cpu for my gaming needs.

However thereis a gaming feature rich MATX board that supports pci-e 3.0 x16 x16

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128551 biggrin.gif

There so much better then the other boards in the price range... Gigabyte should give more color options =/

God, thank you guys, you guys are all saying you all prefer the MVG. Makes me feel happy about my purchase. tongue.gif I was going to get the Formula but I didn't see the point since I was only going to use 2 PCIE slots, but after everyone was getting the Formula/Extreme, I started getting buyers' remorse!

He made a mistake when he was putting down my pot and he didn't know why his CPU wasn't booting....

...the ROG Extreme (and its counterpart, the Gigabyte xxxxx UP7) are for a specific sub group only (incl. LN2 etc)...their extra PCI lanes via Plex chip give you more options, ie compared to running dual GPU cards in two PCIe slots, which tend to be a bit slower than quad discreet GPUs of the same genre. But your point is well taken...according to the manager at the NCIX I go to, 'Extreme' and 'UP7' have the highest return ratio...not because of RMA / faults, but because they are too tricky to set up / overkill / price-performance

...btw, you did not trade your brother in for tri-SLI Titans after all ? biggrin.gif

I weighed the options and found out it'd be easier for my brother to keep buying me random stuff because the Titans didn't seem too good. I'd wait for the next roll of dual-GPUs.

And, personally, I like Asus boards, the next brand would probably be Gigabyte boards.

@TonicX

What are you looking for in a board and what is your max price range? Also, with the max price range, if it's worth it, how much more are you willing to drop?
