ASUS Maximus III Formula
"The Maximus III Formula is a solid Editors Choice as the performance is there as well as great features. Also with so many new boards on the market, I am sure we will see even better boards by ASUS and the other manufactures as time rolls by."
"Along that vein, the Maximus delivered a slightly higher overclock with less voltage than was needed on the same processor on the Intel Kingsberg board. The Turbo V Evo software auto tuning feature worked well enough but it took a while to test and tune to get the same overclock that I can manually set and boot in thirty seconds."
"Now that the Core i5 and Core i7 8xx series are officially out, we are seeing so many companies throwing out various P55 based boards. ASUS already has sent us their P7P55D which we reviewed earlier. This board is aimed at the mid-range and high-end crowd. Today the Maximus III Formula arrives for a good going over. This board is aimed at the high-end to enthusiast level crowd and is part of the Republic of Gamers series."
"Hardwareoverclock.com has posted another motherboard review. Last week we have take a look at the Asus Maximus III Formula board with P55 chipset. This board was made for gamers and overclockers. The Bios is very extensive, the layout nice and the performance great. Only the high price is very high again."
"ASUS is a company that doesn't rest on its laurels and is known for innovation, producing some premium products in their popular Republic of Gamers lineup that cater to the diehard gamers and enthusiasts. The ASUS Maximus III Formula is a premium LGA1156 motherboard for those looking to push their Core i5/i7 to the edge and appreciate the finer points of design and quality."
"The Asus Maximus 3 Formula ROG (Republic of Gamers) motherboard is without a doubt one of those legendary boards. Gifted with style and grace and pretty enough to soften the heart of the hardest core overclocker the board is a sheer joy to run and overclock. Despite the ability to deliver great performance for the casual end user and self overclock the i7 870 to 3.52GHz with just a mouse click, the Maximus 3 has more than enough features for the enthusiast hard core overclocker."
"Mainboard makers have welcomed the arrival of LGA1156 platform with great enthusiasm. If even Intel offers four mainboard models based on Intel P55 Express chipset, then what can we say about Asus and Gigabyte who have at least a dozen different mainboard modifications even for flagship chipsets like Intel X58 Express. However, looks like we have been not quite fair towards Asus this time. So far we have already reviewed two mainboards from Gigabyte – GA-P55-UD6 and GA-P55-UD3R – and at least two more Gigabyte mainboards are awaiting their turn to be reviewed."
"This brings me to ASUS' Maximus III Formula, part or theit Republic of Gamers series of products. The Maximus is their top-end mid-range, if that makes any sense, motherboard. It all started with the P35 chipset, so this is their third iteration. However, this one is quite a bit difference since Lynnfield and P55 brought some drastic changes as you most likely read in our launch article. The Maximus III Formula is packed including the usual CrossFire and SLI, but also brings along others that are unique to their RoG line."
"On the power supply has placed special emphasis ASUS. The CPU is a 16-phase power supply available, plus an additional three phases for the memory controller on the CPU. Regarding Capacitors ASUS is also, as now, all reputable motherboard manufacturer on all-solid capacitors, which have a MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) of 50,000 hours."
