ASUS Maximus V Formula Review

3D Mark Vantage

As expected Vantage is heavily reliant upon the Sapphire HD7950 instead of the whole package, but the results are still pretty good, with the P score being more impressive than the X score, but all of them are fine.

 

3D Mark 11

The more up-to-date 3D Mark 11 is even closer, and it's clear how much of a benefit the larger overclock available to the Extreme is when compared to the rest of the Z77 motherboards. The Formula stock performance is again more impressive than the overclocked result.

I don't really like the barbs and the heatsink design in general.Quote

Yea, why can't they just make some 1/4 threads, and close it with some plugs with the top in the same material as the heatsinks :/Quote

I don't think it looks that bad at all. And maybe you could just get the dremel out and cut it off? That would ruin the watercooling possibilities on that heatsink though.Quote
