If you’re looking for Maximus V Extreme reviews, to start with have a look at this huge 25 page Guru3D article for some real in-depth analysis:
“The featureset is really impressive, you name it, it’s on there. Combined with the OC Key and that new dual-band mini PCI Express 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi/Bluetooth 4.0 card (this is the SKU we reviewed today) there is very little to be left in terms of wishes. Intersting is ThunderBolt, unfortunately for the PC, there are barely implementations for it that make good use for it.”
“Then ASUS implemented VGA hotwire, with the VGA Hotwire feature, plug the two-wire cable onboard and solder two wires on the VGA’s voltage regulator and accurately adjust the voltage. That line alone literally will scare away the regular end-users as that is touching something nobody wants to touch. It’s an option though and will only be used by pro overclockers.”
which peaks with the conclusion:
Truth be told, we don’t just adore the The Maximus V Extreme, we love it. That said, it’s not for everybody. This motherboard serves a very specific type of end users. If you are intrigued by it, then that’s description applies directly to you. Highly recommended and we’ll grant it our most hard to get best hardware award.
While hardware.info produced this review for dutch readers (the English translation will usually follow shortly):
“Definitely OC Key is something we like a lot, this proves that ASUS really has a very talented team of R&D guys developing new and innovative features over and over again”
“The maximus V Extreme is THE best Z77 overclocking motherboard on the market today, it is equipped with all features imaginary for this platform and therefore definitely gets our Hardware.info GOLD award!”
AtomicPC also went hands-on, and after testing they found;
“Overall this board is nothing short of spectacular; you really can’t deny the features, and the engineering in this board are second to none. The only question left is the price. With all of the features of the Formula, plus extra PCI lanes, LN2 support and the OC Key, it’s not going to be a cheap pick up.”
Giving it an overall rating of 93% and a final verdict “Arguably one of the best Z77 motherboards on the market.”
