Excerpt: The ASUS Maximus VI Formula is among the newest members of the Republic of Gamer (ROG) product line. From the design of its ROG Armor to its power regulation circuitry, the Maximum VI Formula takes the ASUS Z87 motherboard line to a whole new level. The Maximus VI Formula does not come cheap at an MSRP of $329.99, but it is a steal in light of all the high-end component ASUS packed under the hood.
Summary: Final Thoughts
When ASUS first launched their Z87 lineup the Maximus VI Formula was missing. ASUS took their time with their board to give gamers and enthusiasts alike the best combination of features in a motherboard and I really think that they have. This board completes the Republic of Gamers Z87 lineup that now has five motherboards instead of the normal 3. You have the Maximus VI Extreme, Maximus VI Formula,
Maximus VI Hero
, Maximus VI Gene and Maximus VI Impact.
Pros: – Made with quality components, – ROG Armor, – mPCIe combo card, – Great included software, – SupremeFX audio, – 10 SATA 6GB/s ports, – Great for gaming and overclocking
ASUS Z87 Maximus VI Formula (LGA 1150) Motherboard Review
21 November 2013
Conclusion: The ASUS Maximus VI Formula is a very expensive motherboard though at a price of £240/$300 it is much cheaper than the £310/$380 that the Maximus VI Extreme costs or even the £340/$400 that the Gigabyte G1 Sniper 5 costs. In the context of the competition it is expensive, but there are at least 10 z87 motherboards that are more expensive than it so it isn’t a mind-blowing price. Of course the real question is do you really get £240/$300 worth of motherboard?
Pros: Class leading performance, Excellent UEFI BIOS, Generous accessory package, Huge amount of connectivity, Structural sturdy design, One of the best looking Z87 motherboards on the market, Water cooling ready, Excellent audio quality
Cons: Expensive, Has a lot of “extra stuff” that most users may not ever use or need
Summary: ASUS delayed the release of the Maximus VI Formula till after Computex 2013. We got a glimpse of the board at the ASUS booth and it looked at first glance like a TUF/ROG hybrid. The ROG series are renown as high end motherboards, stunning looks and high performance; however not engineered solely for gamers, but the enthusiast and extreme overclockers get their sweets too.
Excerpt: While the Extreme board in ROG line is always seen as the upper echelon of performance and features I think more real world features or should I say usable features always seem to be on the Formula things such as awesome audio solutions and the like which are more beneficial to the gamer while the Extreme has always had extreme overclocking centric feature sets which will still work as a gaming board but simply does not carry that special feel the formula offers.

10 September 2013
Excerpt: The Maximus VI Extreme is ASUS' most high-end board and is solely intended for the hardcore overclockers using extreme methods of cooling. The Maximus VI Hero is meant more for the gamers, the other side of the RoG crowd.The Maximus VI Formula is positioned between those two both in terms of pricing and features.

Excerpt: Мы продолжаем знакомить вас с материнскими платами ASUS линейки Republic of Gamers для процессоров Intel Haswell. Несмотря на все преимущества, среди протестированных нами моделей сложно сделать однозначный выбор.
Conclusion: Maximus VI Formula jer vrlo čvrsta, robusna i kvalitetna ploča koja je po sposobnostima ispod najjače Extreme verzije, no i cijenom je znatno privlačnija. Onome kome ne treba sve što Extreme verzija nudi poput OC Panela i tehnologija za ekstremni overclocking ušteda od 80 do 100 € dobro će doći za brži procesor i radnu memoriju. Objektivno, jedino što bi voljeli vidjeti na ovoj ipak gamerskoj ploči je dual x16 načina rada za 2-way SLI ili CFX konfiguracije.
Pros: Kvalitetna izvedba, napredna naponska jedinica, vrlo kvalitetan zvučni podsistem, OC mogućnosti, oprema, Combo II WiFi+BT kartica, softverski paket.
Cons: Uvjetno rečeno cijena, na ovom kalibru ploče bio bi poželjan dual x16 PCIe.
