ASUS Maximus V FORMULA color opinion needed

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
Hello I was wondering if you guys could give me an opinion on this. I am wanting to buy the ASUS Maximus V FORMULA because it has more features for what I am wanting but I am building a blue and black computer scheme. Would this mobo look bad with the blue and black scheme that I have already commited to lol. I guess my question is how bad will the red stick out after everything is installed?

The red definitely shows. You have the shinny red just to the left of the CPU, two red ram slots, red PCI slots, and red SATA connectors, the red led on the logo and along the left side of the board can be turned off though.

I like the board but if you do not want red as part of your theme, I wouldn't recommend it.

It will stick out a lot. Why do you want that particular board, it's not that good for the price.

They're okay but I'd recommend the Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H or UD5H, you get much more for your money than you do with the Asus boards and they have nice blue accents too.

I like Gigabyte boards but my only concern with the UD5H is I planned on using Corsair Dominator 1866 ram and it looks like the UD5H is limited to 1600 mhz

It supports up to 2800MHz so that shouldn't be a concern wink.gif

It does support higher. Ivy Bridge officially supports up to 1600, everything else is considered overclock.

Ok lol now that you have me really interested in this board can you maybe point out why the Gigabyte board is better than the Asus. Like is the BIOS better and will it be a better board for overclocking my 3770k.

The UD3H and UD5H both have true 6+2 phase power delivery and much higher quality MOSFETS than the Asus boards, which means they are better for overclocking. They also have the traditional Gigabyte UD traits like the double thick copper on the PCB. The UD3H also held world records when it first came out smile.gif
I'm actually picking up the UD5H for myself pretty soon.
