Over the years, ASUS Republic of Gamers motherboards have become the standard that others are measured by. Offering a unique feature set for the gamer as well as the extreme overclocker looking to set new records, ASUS ROG offerings are what I would consider a halo product. Over the past few years, I have looked at a broad selection of ASUS motherboards, including the ROG offerings. In this time, I have seen steady improvements in the feature set and build quality, as each part of the package has been meticulously refined to offer the gamer and enthusiast the best possible motherboard for the price. It's not always just raw performance that makes the motherboard attractive, but the long term reliability and impressive feature set that ASUS brings to the table. Having gone through the ASUS Maximus V Gene and looking at what ASUS brought to the table, it should prove interesting to see how the ASUS Maximus V Formula compares. For the $279 price tag, or $90 price premium over the Maximus V Gene, you get improved multi-GPU options, an updated VRM cooling solution called Fusion Thermo, a hybrid liquid/air cooled solution, an upgraded Supreme FX IV sound solution, an improved mPCIe riser card, and more.
