extremes only real difference IMO is its oc tool and that is.... how shall I put it... rather gimmicky. Personally I'd be between formula and asrock z87 OC Formula as asrock has conformal coating and 5year warranty and an actual LCD that gives you temps and a few other things
And the Max formula looks rally sexy and you dont have to buy waterblocks in the future

I went with the extreme over the formula but the deciding factor was i wanted 3way sli and the formula does not have the plx chip that makes this possible. the oc panel is useless BUT it does look nice.
