Well the Formula is pretty much the middle child of the rampage 3 series.

Its just has one less PCI-E slots, doesn't have the extra power connectors, heat sink is a bit different.

But the quality and features are quite the same.

If you are not going to be benching or doing extreme cooling (LN2) then save the money and go with the Formula. I have both and the Formula seems to be a little more refined. The RE3 does have some unique features such as the ability to shutoff a PCIe lane for troubleshooting purposes, but for the most part it is meant for benching. One more thing, if you plan on water cooling the board, no one makes a water block for the Formula.

the formula also has usb 3 and sata 6. its a newer board, with more or less the same features as the extreme. as mentioned if you are not hardcore into benching, and are not going to run a quadfire/quad SLI rig save a few bucks and get the formula

Also another thing, and maybe it's irrelevant to you, but the R3E only has 1 USB header for front panel whereas the R3F has 2.
