Unless you need the WiFi i would say the formula but honestly you can get cheaper boards that will perform pretty much the same.

Formula has WiFi/Blutooth on add-in card.

ASUS intends ROG platform for gamers/OC'ers. The P-series are mainstream products, and do not offer the same OC features, like ram timing stuff, additional voltages options, fan controls, etc. that are found on the ROG boards. They(the p-series boards) are more intended for non-OC, but can OC fairly well too.

Maximus is better but to get off subject, The Maximus is overpriced and not needed unless your a hardcore overclocker. All Z77 boards CPU performance are essentially the same. If your not a hardcore overclocker, there are plenty of Z77 boards that may fit your needs such as the MSI Z77 GD65. it will overclock within 100MHz of the Maximus on water and the same on air seeing Ivy chips run hot. The GD65 retails for $160 US and is one of the Z77 best bang for the buck. The 8* series IMO are also overpriced with really no gains over the GD65. USB 3.0 speeds may be a tad faster but that's about it. You will not notice any particular advantages in performance on a day to day basis with the GD 65. gigabyte also makes some great mainstream Z77 boards as does ASRock at a lower price that overclock great.

The maximus' advantage like I said is a potential max overclock on water of about 100MHz and that is NOT guaranteed but if your doing sub zero overclocking, the Maximus has great Power Phase and a very in depth bios for sub zero and for Ram adjustments but seriously, there is not a noticable performance gain in memory overclocking anyhow. The GD65 will certainly get high end ram to 2400MHz.

The G65 is a good alternative in addition to boards such as the asrock extreme 4 and the gigabyte UD4H.

Does this onboard wifi really stream HD videos to your mobiles and Tablets smoothly?
Has anyone tried it?:confused::confused:

What about this Bluetooth 4.0 function,does it mean that we can just right and send any file from our PC to Bluetooth enabled Mobile?:confused::confused:

WiFi:

I gamed on it with no problems. Really, it's true use is as you say, to allow the board to act as an access point, and I think both boards include software exactly for this. I could check with the formula, I do have one sitting on my shelf, but the P-series is not a product line that ASUS sent me for Z77, so I am not familiar directly with those products. I have no tried streaming video to devices as my network is already built to do so, and provides that function via my DVR, but only in 720p. I did stream 1080p flash videos to the ASUS Maximus V formula using that Wifi card in that picture, but not from it to other devices.


Bluetooth isn't something I use. Ease of use is not good enough yet for the desktop environment unless you are talking about keyboards and mice. My only experience with Bluetooth phone stuff required software which I did not like.

the formula is a nice board, with a fine build-in audio even it's a Realtek chip.
Who produces better sound V gene or V formula ?:rolleyes::rolleyes:

If the wi-fi module is the same one as the one that came with my P9X79 Deluxe, it's an Atheros based wi-fi card. Works out of the box in Ubuntu as well. My machine says it is an Atheros AR9002WB-1NG.

If that much bandwidth makes a difference, than you can keep arguing that Ethernet is better and if speed is truly important you wouldn't be using wi-fi to begin with. :)

Intel is just using less cpu and memory then other brands and gives a better connection overall that has been proven before, but yes i am using wire, would be a shame not to on a 30/30mbit connection :roll:

maybe this quote will help u michael:

ThunderFX box is good, but lacks volume, IMHO. BEing USB powered, I'm not surprised about that, though.
cadaveca told me that some days ago, but why not if u don't think onboard is enough buy a dedicated audio card?

I'm Not Exactly Sure It Was Necessary To Make Another Thread On Motherboards.

Yes, Actually I have many queries, so had opened 2 threads.:p

After watching many videos from youtube and all your opinions from this site, I have decided to buy Asus Maximus V Formula/ThunderFX. for my i7 3770k

I have few questions though:-

1.Can I use Corsair RAM 2400MHZ right from the start without doing any overclocking?:confused:

2. I think i7 3770k with V Formula will easily carry around 10 Virtual Sytems with 32Gb Ram, is Overclocking also helps in running Virtual Machines more smoothly?:confused:

3. is 750W PSU enough or 850W ?:confused:

You opened two threads, one got closed, because they talk about the same things. I don't get what you mean many queries. All your questions can be answered in one thread, as they are pertain to motherboards.

The 2400mhz memory will not run at that speed right away. Its not plug in and play. 3770k/ Ivy Bridge memory controller native/default memory speed is 1600mhz. You are going to have to "Overclock" that to run 2400. You can also try the XMP Profiles to set it for you, but that wont work sometimes. Overclocking the CPU will make the VMs run just a they would on a normal system, it wont allow you to run more VMs. VMs need the resources. 750w would be fine. even a 650w would be.
