post #10341 of 18196
I think that ASUS "regular" lineup (i.e. the bling bling gold ones) are quite underwhelming this year. Gigabyte and MSI have really stepped up their game and while I think ASUS might have the best boards for "regular" consumers MSI and Gigabyte definitively grabbed the gamer audience in the ~100$-200$ price range. I'm gonna get a Maximus VI Formula board and a 4770k to replace my z77 V formula and 2600 (non k). I know myself too well that if I get a 3770k instead and just stick with my current motherboard I will just look towards Haswell anyway.

The Maximus Hero is really nice, doesn't look too exciting in pictures but it's rather sexy when you see it in person. Would definitively be a good choice for more average gaming rigs that want a bit of ROG goodness! I think the Maximus Extreme is fairly unnecessary if you won't go quad SLI and crazy overclocks. The Maximus Formula actually suits my needs better than the extreme one. rolleyes.gif

Edit: Couldn't agree with you more. The new Formula looks absolutely stunning. Will fit perfectly into my build! biggrin.gif

Yes their mainstream lineup really is looking quite bad, and i don't know what made them think gold looks good on mobos. I mean the only place i could see gold fit on gear is sound cards but there is a reason for that, because it lasts longer at least if it's gold on gold connectors (doesn't matter for sound quality though).

And yes i want the new VI Formula SO bad but well my wallets pretty much empty especially after buying the 780 about a week ago. But will definitely get this new Haswell + 1150 chipset lineup at some point. thumbsupsmiley.png

I thought the gold color scheme looked pretty good in the pictures but the massive problem with it is that there are VERY few gold builds and other accessories that you can get to make a nice looking rig with one of those in it. Another problem is that the PCI-E and RAM slots look absolutely terrible in person. They are more sand brown than gold and look nothing like the pictures or the gold color of the heatsinks. I think they are going with getting the Hero and the Sabertooth as their gaming rig motherboards and the regular Pro's and stuff will just be for builders who need a workstation or something of the sort and couldn't care less about looks.

I think that the 780 will make more of a performance increase anyway, I just bought a new phone so I'll have to hold off for a bit too, not that big of a deal as the Formula is apparently gonna take about 2 months to get to retailers according to a ROG guy I talked to at an Intel event earlier this week.

Yes you are right about it not fitting with many things, should have said it a little different i guess. And yeah there isn't such a big performance boost from upgrading to Z87 from Z68 atm or Sandy to Haswell, so yeah i can definitely wait also the good thing about waiting is the prices might drop a little bit.

And the approx 2 month wait time is perfect really then.

If they made the Maximus VI Formula in blue and black too id be all over it like a rash...red just isn't my colour!...However as it has lots of black amour and black MOFSETS and covers, you wouldn't notice the red detailing the time my two gpu's, Asus D2X Sound card and other bits were in. Love the amour on this board and the Sabertooth.

I'm not thinking of going for Z87 and Haswell though due to heat worries.

Very nice, sexy, and clean build you have there looks pretty similar to mine. Really like the white and blue color scheme, and gotta love them Dominators, god i want 'em specool.gif

Edit: Also yes the 680 is definitely a good card but i'm just wondering isn't the 770 pretty much the same price as the 680? At least they are where i live.

Indeed blue is also a very nice color, haven't seen any black and blue motherboards for a while but Gigabyte sure makes a lot of those schemes it seems.

Also what heat worries are you talking about here?

And the approx 2 month wait time is perfect really then.

Sounds like a good idea, I think that board will definitively be worth it and it's nice to be able to watercool the mosfets and so on straight out of the box more or less.

Love the amour on this board and the Sabertooth.

I'm not thinking of going for Z87 and Haswell though due to heat worries.


The heat isn't any worse than Ivy was, and if you are really concerned about it there's always delidding biggrin.gif

You could always paint the PCI-e lanes and dimm slots if you want some more blue details. I think that the blue MSI board looks great. Has more of a darker blue color than the z77 ASUS boards. Too bad that the board itself is more on the lower end and not really an enthusiast board.

Thanks man, yes i did see yours and must say it also looks very nice especially with that 780 and titan cooler biggrin.gif

Yes the 770 was actually a bit cheaper but i dont like the look of the new colour scheme by evga black/gold and since the 680 fits my look, i went with it smile.gif i know the 770 is slightly quicker but i was willing to sacrifice that for the 680 looks.
