The Supreme FX lights up the whole left hand side of the motherboard. If you like a red glow this is absolutely the motherboard for you, but you can turn it off in the BIOS.
With such a user-friendly BIOS on hand, and as we've said just now, all the elements are exactly where you'd expect to find them, it makes overclocking a breeze. The Formula isn't quite up there with the Extreme, but we wouldn't expect it to be, still 4.9GHz for most applications, and a 4.8GHz stable 24/7 overclock are right up there and certainly as hard as we'd want to push our i7-3770K on air in daily use.
