    Lightbulb Maximus XI Extreme and Formula ?

    i've pre ordered the Extreme because it was only like 80$ difference with the formula but i cant find any Advantage difference between the 2?
    anyone have any idea?
    Also not sure what this means

    * When the M.2_2 Socket 3 is operating in SATA mode, SATA port 2 will be disabled.*

    Im upgrading this year going with

    Intel i9 9900k
    Maximus extreme XI z390
    EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti XC ULTR
    ( im keeping my RAM G.SKILL TridentZ Series 32GB DDR4 3400 )
    ( im keeping my PSU Corsair Professional Series 1050W )

    Any Toughs?



    thanks

    If you use a SATA M.2 drive it will disable one of the SATA ports

    Extreme vs. Formula, well the Extreme is Extreme, the best of the best

    where did you preordered the Extreme? In US?


    they have different sizes, and extreme has a special dimm.2 slot near the ram slots

    Great Specs!

    They main key differences is
    Extreme = geared for superior overclocking (More settings)
    Formula = geared towards watercool enthusiast
