ASUS Rampage III Formula - Leaked Shots

You may or may not know but ASUS launched their top of the range X58 motherboard a while ago dubbed the ASUS Rampage III Extreme. However, it comes with quite a hefty price tag (£306.12) so it's certainly not for everyone. However, we've recently received some leaked images of it's younger brother, the Rampage III Formula.

From pictures alone we can identify key differences such as only housing three PCI-E x16 slots as opposed to the extreme's four. We also noticed that ASUS have rotated all eight SATA ports 90 degrees, which we though was rather nice for cable management.

From then on it's the standard X58 affair really, LGA1366 socket and six DIMM slots, as well as the legendary red and black colour scheme found on all new ROG motherboards.

The heatsink on this motherboard looks very similar to that of the Crosshair III Formula rather than the Rampage III Extreme. We expect the board will carry all the new technologies such as SATA III and USB 3.

You can view all the images in the image scroller to the right of this article.

I'm sort of a newbie on liquid cooling, but I did my first on my second rig with 3/8th ID but i would like some help on a thicker tubing loop like 3/8th ID 1/2 OD. I think I can use my waterblock for the new loop.
Thankyou, for taking the time to read this haha.
Help will be appreciated.

The hose sizes you stated are the same.

But if you mean upgrade from 3/8 to 1/2 hose you will have to change all your babrbs too. For the hassle the performace difference is very minimal.

We would need in depth details about your system and your loop to be able to help any more.

thankyou, i'll take that into consideration. I'll just stay with what i have, and not even spend 100$ on barbs and fittings for just cooling the processor.
