    I'm in love

    OLED, 2 bios chips, beautiful stuff here. I'm thinking with 8 cores it will be much easier to OC.

    My favourite this gen is the Formula. Amazing looking board for a hardline build.

    Yep, the design has trickled down to the Formula, and it makes sense given the water cooling features.

    Formula looks good. However I really don't understand why the waterblock was not added to Rampage VI series as default option where it was most needed, instead they add it to mainstream motherboards..

    It's not really a feature born out of necessity. For instance, with the Rampage series and extreme overclocking, active cooling with a fan is sufficient. It fits that niche, rather than burdening overclockers with a waterblock they may well not use.

    I thought this was a thread about hamburgers.
    I'd like to deploy my troops in her country.

    Is December still the release date for this board?
    Has anyone seen it for sale anywhere? I've only seen one review so far.

    Well you see the issue with the Rampage VI is that most people bought the EK Monoblock so the stock cooling is removed (and the fan is ugly along with its mounting system) and this leads to other problems. The most important issue is that when people delid the IHS on the CPU is lowered (after removing some gasket / glue) and then the monoblock might be at an angle with the VRMs and not making perfect contact. It might or might not be corrected with thinner thermal pads on the VRMs (under the monoblock) or then you have to buy a dedicated VRM monoblock for this board (watercool makes one) and also get a dedicated CPU block. This returns us to square one! Should Asus have included a waterblock for the VRMs we could avoid all this and get a dedicated CPU block and achieve better results without all the hassle.

    So next time please consider adding a waterblock for the VRMs if only for the better looks of it because attaching an ugly small noisy fan (prone to breaking too) is not ideal for a board that costs that much..

    Just a suggestion.

    On a personal note, that's noted. It can depend on the platform, however. The Extreme is jam-packed with features which means there isn't a great deal of wriggle room.
