Posted September 4, 2014 by Kenny in CPU & Motherboards

Overview

Hardware:
 
 
Price at time of Review: $349.99 on Newegg.com
 

WHAT WE LIKED:

Hybrid CrossChill Copper VRM Cooling Block, Armor Shield, Fantastic Aesthetics, Stable Overclocks
 

WHAT WE DISLIKED:

A bit Pricey, M.2 SATA Port Location
 
BOTTOM LINE:
If you take the overall performance for the Maximus VII Formula, and paired it with a set of nice graphics cards you will get a very nice set up that will last years with today's current games. Now, if you didn't need all the extra bells and whistles that the Maximus VII Formula board offers, we can see that the Hero is a very good alternative option. So when it comes to valuing the Formula, we found the board to be bit pricey for some users at $349.99 on newegg. But if you can use all the extras you get from the Maximus VII Formula, we say its worth every penny.

Introduction

A few months back we took a look at the ASUS Maximus VII Hero Motherboard (HERE) . The Maximus VII Hero, which is part of ASUS’ mid range Republic of Gamer’s line, took home the Editors Choice award for its great performance and outstanding aesthetics. However, that was only the tip of the iceberg for the ROG line up. Today… we have the chance to take a look at ASUS’ flagship motherboard the ASUS Maximus VII Formula.

We are really excited to start putting this motherboard to the test. Its aesthetics alone really stand out, especially its Armor Shield. If you are an water cooling enthusiast, the hybrid CrossChill Cooling VRM block is also a great feature. Can the ASUS ROG Maximus VII Formula live up to its little brother the Hero and earn another Editor’s Choice Award? Let’s dive in and take a look.
