The Pro has more SATA ports and a few more phases..Oh, and one more USB port. I would definitely get the pro because you use alot of HDDs and SSDs and you'll be overclocking pretty well.

They are identical, except the Pro has:

 

  • 2 more USB 3.0 ports
  • 12 phases for the CPU instead of 8 (both have 4 phases for the iGPU)
  • A Q-Shield (a supposedly better I/O shield, but most consumers don't need a beefed up shield like this)
  • Two internal USB 3.0 ports instead of 1 (allowing for 4 'front panel' ports instead of 2)
  • 1 x TPM internal connector (I don't know what this is)
  • 1 x COM port internal connector 4 fan headers instead of 3
  • 1 x 2-port USB 2.0 and eSATA module
  • Something in the "Manageability" category called "WOR by PME" that the non Pro board doesn't have.

Put them in two tabs side by side, scroll to the same position, and then flip back and forth.  ;)

For overclocking, Z77 is the best right now.  If you won't be overclocking, then it almost doesn't matter.  Of course though, it depends on your needs (that is, if you are not overclocking).  So if you're overclocking, Z77.

Ok..Pretty fascinating...I'm considering buying a M-ATX now..What do you think about the Maximus V Gene?

http://pcpartpicker.com/ca/p/rwAW

My current build right now...You might say that you would recommend the GTX 690..But, would I benefit from the 8GB of total VRAM?
Also, Is the H100i really worth it? If not, I am going for the H100, unless you have a better watercooled CPU cooler or a fan cooled..
Also, any more suggestions?

I don't know M-ATX boards, but the Maximus V Gene strikes me as a board that's major overkill if only air cooling will be used for overclocking.  I'm not sure though.

 

There won't be 8 GB because it's shared memory.  So, with two 680s instead of 1, your VRAM performance is better because both of the cards will always have the exact same data in their memory and both of them will be working with it at the same time.  That's a good thing.  ;)

Are there any motherboards with similar features & specs to the ASUS RoG Maximus V Formula with a cheaper price?
I don't really care for what brand it is..Unless, it has a lower reputation than like AsRock...
post #16 of 19
ASRock has some meh boards and some great boards. The ASRock Z77 OC Formula is in your price range and falls into the great boards quality. Right now it holds the #2 spot for PCMark 2005, #3 spot in PCMark 2004 (Behind the MSI MPower), and #2 spot for CPU Frequency at HWBot. That's not a bad board by any means.

My recommendation would be to go for the ASRock Z77 OC Formula or MSI Z77 MPower. They seem to be the two best boards on the market right now in the price range you're looking at.

Can you list everything you like about the Maximus V Formula?  It will help us find out if there is one that's similar but with a lower price.

 

Again though, the Maximus V Formula is major unnecessary overkill if you only ever do air-cooled overclocking.  So, that's something to think about.
