ASUS Maximus VI Formula Review

With the Maximus VI Formula, ASUS actually surprised us. We really didn't expect to see an "Armor", like you get it with the Sabertooth boards, coming with an ROG board. The final product therefore has some very characteristic looks. Furthermore you get an armada of features, which should make this board appealing to overclockers, modder, enthusiasts as well obviously as gamers.

 Game board lower game scores
This is ASUS's Formula VI super gaming board why do you think it's near the bottom on all the games you tested?

 Re: Game board lower game scores
Honestly, I don't have a clue. I only know from ASUS, that regarding the low CPU score in 3DMark 11, this has something to do with loos memory subtimings.

It bugs me that those scores are low. I even reinstalled the test system and double checked with my cloned backup drive, but there are just no changes at all. I hope a BIOS update will bring cure. On the other hand it's quite astonishing to see, that 2D scores are very good.

 awesome looks and overdeisgned features
Seems to me ASUS have spent way too much energy designing the thing rather than making sure it performs well. With this test in hand it now makes sense the board is released this late. The looks are 2nd to none and have had me waiting with the hopes that it would be worth waiting for. Now it's out and scores so poorly. So poor in fact that it makes the price ridiculous and the wait so not worth it. Even taken into consideration it's born with a waterblock and you don't have to mod it to add it into a waterloop doesn't even come close to making up for the extreme price. I'm needles to say very disappointed after reading this review.
