Maximus Formula Blocks fit a Rampage Formula ?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
OK ... a little Photo-shopping on two images I've found of the Heat-Pipe assembly for both the Rampage and the Maximus.



The angles of the individual images is slightly different and the resolutions were different as well, so I've tried to get them as close as possible to the same for reference sake.

It appears to me that they are in fact the exact same heat-pipe assembly's ... so the water-blocks for the Maximus Formula should fit the Rampage Formula as well.

On XS, there's a thread talking about how you can BIOS-mod your Maximum into a Rampage (or other way around, into whatever the better model is). So I would assume the components are the same as well.

I've been reading that one as well.

Some reviewers are even saying that the X48 is nothing more than a hand-picked X38 that can handle the 1600 FSB speeds.

it isnt.
X38 is 90nm
X48 is 65nm

I came across the same thing on another forum somewhere, but cannot validate that information anywhere else.

I did find this here - http://techreport.com/articles.x/14316

A new north bridge
The X48 Express' defining feature is its new north bridge component—a chip that might not actually be new at all. Intel engages in a process called binning with its processors, sorting what are essentially identical chips based on the clock speeds at which they're comfortable running. The same approach could be applied to north bridge chips, making the X48 a bin sort of X38 chips comfortable running a 1600MHz front-side bus. Based on our own experiences overclocking a couple of X38 boards to front-side bus speeds of 2000MHz and higher, we'd wager there are plenty of X38 chips up to the task of a mere 1600MHz.

....................................... X48 Express ............. X38 Express .............. P35 Express


Front-side bus ........... 1600/1333/1066MHz ........ 1333/1066MHz ............. 1333/1066MHz
Memory controller .............DDR2-800 ................... DDR2-800 .................. DDR2-800
........................................DDR3-1600 .................. DDR3-1066 ................ DDR3-1333
PCI Express 1.1 lanes ............. 0 ............................... 0 .............................. 16
PCI Express 2.0 lanes ............. 32 ............................ 32 .............................. 0
Multi-GPU support .............. CrossFire .................... CrossFire ..................... CrossFire*
Chipset interconnect .............. DMI ......................... DMI ............................. DMI
Peak interconnect bandwidth 2GB/s ....................... 2GB/s ......................... 2GB/s

You are correct.

Can you link me to the site you all found that information ?

I cannot find it again.

I got a Maximus forumla board. But why does mine have the Rampage heat pipes on the board? and not the maximus formula heat pipes.

im not complaining but just wondering

It's the same, the picture of the Maximus Formula in this case doesn't have the Mosfet heatsinks.

They are the same. The picture on the right just shows the Mosfet heatsink as well. If you included the Mosfet heatsinks with the Maximus Formula picture, they would be identical.
