ASUS Maximus V Formula Review

SiSoft Sandra

With the Processor Arithmetic benchmark the Formula is just edged out by the Extreme at stock, albeit by the tiniest margin. When overclocked the higher speed we obtained from the Extreme clearly shows, but the Formula still slides in as the best of the rest behind the two Flagship boards from ASUS and Gigabyte. Things are much tighter in the Processor MultiMedia test, with the Formula in second place at stock and equal to the other 4.8GHz overclocks.

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
