As for the formula and sabertooth, i think they perform quite identical with overclocking, but i didnt push either to the limit, since im more after a stable 24/7 balanced overclock/undervolt setting and 3,66ghz is more than enough for daily needs. A friend of mine uses the sabertooth with a xeon x5650 at 3,66ghz and it runs with identical settings as the formula and gene im using. Judging from the temperatures and low voltage settings, theres plenty of room left for further overclocking. The main difference would be, the formula is able to do 3-way sli, with better audio and intel lan chipset, while the sabertooth only offers 2-way sli and realtek audio/lan solutions, aside from that, the bios have different layouts.
