Asus Maximus VI Formula Motherboard Review

Welcome to the review of the Maximus VI Formula motherboard from Asus. This is out of all the Intel Z87 motherboards. The one I can look at and go. There is a very compelling value here for this high-end Motherboard. Because it includes things that I believe in very strongly, an excellent high-end Intel NIC solution with prioritization. What's included on many of the other aces motherboards but where it gets real for me. Their Formula series motherboards are the onboard audio solution. So here they have a bunch of stuff that may or may not mean anything to you. Premium audio capacitors are not necessarily the same as regular capacitors. You can have an excellent capacitor that could be better for audio applications.

Alright, Ther are also supreme FX shielding EMI protection cover ok differential design with premium op-amps Premium. Op amps are essential here. Why mah film capacitor some emo rather series logic CS A43 98 DAC, and they also have ATP a 6-1 to 0 a two a 600 ohm HiFi headphone amp. So, this whole thing with their onboard audio solutions is that it's more than the sum of the parts. Now they list all the details for you specification heads that want to know what's in there. But what they're trying to do, using a lot of the experience, and trying to deliver a balanced configuration. Some competitors are offering features such as swappable op-amps on their onboard solutions. Still, per a thread on the audio section, you shouldn't want to swap out your op-amps because the rest of the system was designed around them. The one that it was intended to run with, and it's like you could put, you know, a thousand horsepower engine in a Volkswagen Beetle. Still, you shouldn't because it will likely tear the axles off if you try to go anywhere in it. So it's that kind of thing, and it's less extreme than that, but you guys get my point regarding accessories.

We've got a complete kit not quite as Extreme as the Maximus VI Extreme motherboard, which makes a lot of sense. There's a manual with some useless discs inside, although you got a sweet-looking ROG sticker. So please don't throw that away while you're throwing away the disc and an SLI bridge with their awesome Republic of gamers branding, flexible black perfect SLI bridge. Good job, Asus. We've got an antenna for the built-in wireless AC and their combo cards that I like, so it includes both wireless and an NG FF slot. So that you can install a mini SSD that'll interface with PCI Express rather than with a SATA interface like you would an M SATA on a desktop. Let's face it what the point of installing an N SATA SSD is? It doesn't perform any better. It's just you have lots of room, alright.

Asus Maximus VI Formula Motherboard Accessories

Next up, we've got the i/o shield, eight serial data, three cables, four right angles, four straight, and those handy little labels for your SATA cables. So you keep track of what's going where, why, and how; as you may or may not have noticed, this is one excellent motherboard b-roll, and I am reviewing that out of everything. We've looked at this as the best-looking motherboard, and we've encountered they've even done a few things that are just exceptional. So there is a top plate as well as a backplate. Now the back plate is the one I'm more interested in because it is metal and has some solid functionality. So number one is it increases the rigidity of the motherboard. Overall you were torque any screws; when installing your CPU heatsink, the board is less likely to bow and flex and the other thing about. The name Armour is appropriate because it is common for people to install an extra accidentally.

You know, standoff in the back of their motherboard tray or anything like that that can runing your motherboard and cut traces on the back of your motherboard if you don't realize it in time. This will prevent that from happening because it will just hit the armor. So there you go, that's cool on the front, a plastic shroud, and Asus themselves admitted to me that it's more for aesthetics than anything else. With that said. It does a fantastic job of what it's trying to do, improving the motherboard's aesthetics. This one is plastic. They've also said that while they have observed slight temperature improvements, particularly in certain areas like around the PCI Express slots, for a lot of the time, those graphics cards will be kicking off more heat than the motherboard itself. It shields the motherboard from the heat of other components more than helps the motherboard cool itself in that case. Other than that, it doesn't do much in terms of cooling on this particular motherboard implementation.

Next up is their cross chill; now I really like how they've used these stylized rubber plugs here instead of just having the barbed stick out on the last generation motherboard and then having little rubber plugs that are easy to get lost. So this allows you to run the board either completely passively, we have, you know, supplemental air cooling with something like an ant X pot cool or by putting your own Geelong quarter fittings on there and integrating it into your custom loop with that said unless. You're running an anti-corrosive additive such as ethylene glycol. I probably wouldn't recommend running this particular thing in your loop because it has aluminum internals instead of copper internals. Depending on who you ask, of course, aluminum can be delicate and this or that case. It's probably going to be okay, and it likely will. Still, I've seen enough problems with corrosion eating away at aluminum components inside water-cooling loops that it is not something. That I would feel comfortable using unless I had an excellent anti-corrosive additive.

Asus Maximus VI Formula Motherboard Layout

We find that NG FFM PCIe combo two-port where we can put our wireless module and an NG FF or M.2 SSD. We've got a fan header and a four-pin and eight-pin power connector, so while it's not the Maximus VII extreme, which includes their OC panel. It's OC Panel compatible, and it's certainly extreme overclocking compatible. I mean, not quite to the same extent as the Maximus six extreme, although it does support some cool stuff, including their GPU hotwire, which allows you to overvolt Asus GPUs that support the feature on this particular motherboard. It has its memo OK button. This allows you to diagnose post errors caused by memory not really working correctly v checkpoints as well as an onboard post readout start and reset switches built in there's. Something I wanted to draw your attention to is over here. I was looking for it there. That's their patent pending for pin three pin and detecting the CPU fan connector. So it'll automatically configure your fan control which, of course, it has its latest fan control software that you can access through a fan expert.

It is the iteration you can access through the AI suite, allowing you to have complete control of every fan plugged into the motherboard. But anyway, this one will detect on its own with no intervention from the user for dual channel DDR3 ports and an LGA 1150 socket supporting the latest Haswell 4th generation Intel processors. The VRM is as high-end as Asus can build on any ROG motherboard. So this is their DIGI+ Gen 3 powerful engine. So you can configure anything you'd want from within the BIOS - very mine - a very slight degree of accuracy down the right-hand edge. We found the 24-pin exactly where it belongs and would have liked to see that front USB 3 connector on our right angle. That's one thing where this board could still be improved. We've got 6 SATA 3 6 gigabits per second ports running off the Intel chipset and 4 SATA 3 6 gigabits per dual ports running off an additional chipset. This is a feature that's a carryover from the extreme motherboard. It supports fast boot on or off when under sub-zero temperatures.

You may not want it to boot up as quickly, so you can turn fast boot off. We've got our front panel nectars and our front panel USB - had been only a single USB - header on this motherboard, that's very interesting. There's that proprietary connector for the OC panel, the Thunderbolt header to add Thunderbolt support to the motherboard with an optional accessory trusted platform module auxiliary power for multiple graphics cards. However, it should be noted that this board only supports two-way SLI or up to 3-way crossfire. So that will be running in 16x mode for a single card 8X 8X for dual cards, or 8X for X4 X4 triple cards, and NVIDIA doesn't support SLI operation on PCIe 4x slots. This is something that's excellent check this out for you. So Asus has left open-ended PCI Express slots on all the PCIe 1x. If you were to remove the thermal armor, you could install more extended cards without any modding, which is pretty handy. If you want to install more than two graphics cards, I recommend using the easy plug. We've got our front panel audio connector, and it's an ideal location on the bottom left of the motherboard, as well as that redline audio separation for the utterly separate PCB.

It's completely separate from the rest of the PCB. It's as isolated as their old maximum effects implementations, where they had a different PCIe riser card, except it's built into the motherboard. Asus has a great onboard audio solution equivalent to an add-in card, and he said if you go to a lesser board, such as the Maximus 6 hero, for example. So we've got eight for pin fan connectors, and they're very well laid out. You can plug in some top fans, such as our 800D. You got a couple of rear fans and your CPU fan header, and then you'll be able to plug in something at the front of the case and The bottom—so very thoughtful layout on that particular aspect of this motherboard. Let's move around to the back, where we've got the ROG connect button, even though the cables are not included. It does still feature that functionality. So you can hook it up to an external computer or laptop to control all of your overclocking settings at a hardware level. So big cable you'll have to get on your own, but if the functionality is still there, BIOS flashback for USB 2.0 ports, six USB 3.0 ports, DisplayPort HDMI optical audio out Gigabit LAN provided by Intel, as well as 7.1 audio out oh it should be noted that's a 1217 V Intel Gigabit LAN chip that is powering that right there.

Thank you for checking out my unboxing overview of the Maximus VI Formula from Asus, and leave me a comment if you'd like me to read it because I genuinely read the comments except yours, not yours.
