ASUS Maximus Formula (Special Edition) review

The ASUS Maximus Formula Special Edition not only features the X38 chipset but packs a whole bunch of additional features that should help it stand out from competitors' X38 products.

For starters, the Maximus Formula is a water-cooled motherboard, which is no doubt an appealing feature for many many gamers and overclockers alike. It also includes the SupremeFX II soundcard which is another feature aimed at gamers, along with a software bundle of 3D FPS game S.T.A.L.K.E.R., a copy of 3DMark 06 and Kaspersky antivirus.

I've had mine for about a week now, been a quality board so far. Unfortunately I got a B3 revision of the Q6600 from Newegg. I have it at 2.88 (320x9) so far with stock Intel cooler with AS5 and will push it further when my Thermalright Ultra 120 arrives.

I'm using a Lian Li PC-V1000PLUSII case. I had room enough to attach my Scythe Infinity but I was not satisfied with clip mechanism for LGA775 so it went back on my AMD rig. I'm shopping around for something that attaches better to the LGA775 but I expect to have plenty of room to work with.

Try the Zalman CNPS9700 LED. It's a really good heatpipe HSF.
