ASUS Maximus Formula II

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
How good is this board? I'm assuming from it's price it's a kick ass mobo. How well is it at overclocking Quads?

Rampage Formula is a great overclocker is what I think he is trying to say, really nice board and the onboard sound is it's own PCI-E 1x card. The OC tools are easy and the board comes with amazing features including EPU technology. Only downfall for you is it's X48 chipset which means you should throw that 8800 out and go xfire 4850's. =)

The 8800 will work, this board's NB is made for xfiring though. =P

Apart from the x8/x8 crossfire the motherboard is quite excellent. I have owned one and let me say , when they mean rock solid it was rock solid.
