Yeah, I misread something and thought they were the same.

Because good VRM doesn't need to be cooler even under sub-zero. Water cooling VRM is pretty much pointless. It's not a good selling point. Can I see a link where MVF clocks better than UP5? It is better be the same chip.
I've heard that it's hard to get high overclocks on 2011 without something like water cooled VRMs, but on 1155 it's pretty much useless.

I don't agree with the waterblock on it. It wasn't just the UP7, UD3 as well.

Stability wise you can't go wrong with asus maximus v formula,have heard so many horror stories of gigabyte boards lately in India,I know a friend of mine who has reviewed both maximus v formula and z77 up5 and in most cases maximus v formula prooved to be the better board.

Well, LGA2011 is a different story lol. It desperately needs IR3550s. If they fix X79S-UP5 VRM throttling, water shouldn't be necessary anymore.

Currently on mobile thus can't provide link,better search it yourself and make thorough comparison of both boards throughout the reviews,though watercooling vrm is useless according to you I consider it to be a very innovative feature,like I do appreciate the inclusion of thunderbolt in z77 up5.
Gigabyte support is crap here and Asus's support is superb,so I hope you can understand my point of view.

I just want to know how you guys justify MVF price of $280 instead of UP5 $250. It offers less features, worse VRM, but costs more. Just stability?

If it's the other way around where you live, then yes MVF is a good buy.
