ASUS Maximus V Formula Review

AIDA64

In the AIDA64 CPU benchmarks the Formula performs very well at both the overclocked and stock settings. Despite the Extreme managing a higher overclock there is very little to choose between them. Although such is the quality of the Z77 chipset that there isn't much to choose between any of the motherboards we've tested.

One area the ASUS Maximus V is clearly ahead of the rest of the pack is in the Memory bandwidth testing. The Extreme just shades the Formula, but they're both topping the charts.

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

same here, the heatsinks have that rubbery look/texture but other than that great board 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

Pretty much what I thought too.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
