post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
HI,

Did anyone get the EL Backlight from the Maximus Extreme to work on the Maximus Formula?

I am thinking about buying one from ASUS...

TIA

I have the Maximus Extreme with the EL Backlight. I also did a few builds using a Maximus Formula. So I thought the same thing once. I used my Fluke to measure the power going to the EL Backlight, and it is something like 20v, so you would have to mod a power connection to power the light.
