    Bringing up Ferrari's gets quite old after hearing it for years from asus, even in technical support Marshall...

    I dont mean to say this but... Ferrari's and Asus ROG Motherboards dont have anything in common.

    You can drop LN2 and use the Motherboard at the same time

    You cant power a Ferrari on LN2 or even be able to use it YOURSELF.

    The only thing they have in common is the Color being red...

    Why would someone buy a ferrari when City speed limits and Highway are 30mph-80mph usually Max on top of the Low gas mileage?

    Id rather stick with a nice above average car with more room, has more features then a Ferrari.


    I just get sick of hearing Ferrari tbh sometimes from asus, I think i actually got mad here for no reason...

    Now back on subject...haha

    So what are gamers? You just said it yourself its a PREMIUM Brand, Why not call it ROO for Republic Of Overclockers?

    Gamers dont demand much, just features that will help stabilize their machine during gaming.

    A above average Graphics card and Processor.

    Also which internet connectivity plays a HUGE part in, regarind Ping, Bandwidth, all that junk. Bad internet and connectivity = Lag = QQ = #$*&%^#@

    The next is Peripherals, Gamers need something comfortable to them while bringing a Edge to their performance, such as fast responsive mice/keyboards, with amazing sound quality to where you can hear a footstep half way across the map (exadgerating)

    Then comes things like how big of a Monitor they need regarding a small one because they prefer things smaller and easier for them just in general to someone going with a 52in display and have no problem seeing every single last detail on screen.

    TBH Reviewers lately kiss companies butts to get more products.
    Half the time the Customers are giving the real review telling people problems they have and others also having exact one then going to asus.

    Your customers are the real reviewers, the ones who buy off a websites review are just new to this thing and it makes things look bad for the companies.
    Im not specifically talking about asus, just thought I would say that.

    Funny thing is I agree with a lot of what you are saying Cody. Reviewers are a bugbear in my life so I hear you mate.

    Now I am not a gamer. Sure I game a bit but only a bit. I am an overclocker. I bench Pro and I love it. I would love ASUS to make a overclockers board. Yeah I know the Extreme is meant to be one, but it is not. No OC wants a sound card, a lan or half the stuff that is on the board. Heck I only one one Sata port.

    But you know what that OC board is never going to happen. Simply because there is no market for it.

    That makes Marshal right about the economics of things, the Extreme boards even have to have sufficient appeal to gamers or 24/7 users.

    Out of interest in your view what would a dedicated - and I mean hard core - gamer motherboard have?

    Im about to goto sleep HiVizMan but ill let you know later today or tonight.
    Like I said this is nothing personal against Asus nor Overclockers, Just some people are not being honest in the polls or on here.

    And I want people to be honest, say their part, Change people who dissagrees view. Especially mine haha.

    I just wish Asus was more talkative with the customers and the people who always have ideas or doubts about something to speak with people.

    Ive been trying to get ahold of someone from asus to do some stuff and figure out why they do things how they do them ect. And maybe see if they actually also benefit gamers at that price point ect.

    Masaru was the only one who listened and understood as he got alot of the same complaints and ideas given but he is now gone after me and him were working on some stuff as well to pick ROG back up into a Gaming community, not just a Casemodder and Overclocking community that it currently sits at as alot of people agree.

    On even facebook I see tons of comments on the ROG page that its not a gaming community.

    And that saddens me tbh.

    Cheers mate speak later then. I honestly have no idea what gamer's really want, and this forum is not a bad place to speak your mind you would be surprised who reads the posts or who some of the folks really are.

Sort of the like the NX90JQ, only with a GPU more powerful than the GT335M. Maybe a GTX670M and that same design would be really cool. Focus more on the multimedia types who want it all, not just the gamers who count framerates like professional bridge players count cards...
    Yay! Someone else wants me in the team... see ROG, you should employ me

    Well, ASUS make pretty much every component going, so ROG should have access to a lot of kit that's just crying out for a re-design and ROG branding... ROG could save on cash and just pay me in proto-type gear rather than monies...

    But coming from a biker background I know that you can buy Triumph branded bikes, leathers, boots, gloves, socks, t-shirts, glasses, mugs... pretty much anything anyone who has sat on a Triumph might want and probably doesn't want... would be nice to see ROG taking that holistic approach - would make for more choice in say the people who like the ROG mouse/keyboard/speakers, but not the ROG motherboard/gpu/mouse mat, or whatever... If any part in a computer could be an ROG one, then there's more potential customers I reckons... Of course if they made PSUs and Cases with the same logic as the Mars III then your PC might take off!

    Things I think they definitely need are mice, keyboards, monitors and maybe some alternate case sizes - all with that distinctive ROG look gamers can't game without mice and keyboards, and a PC can make all the noises you want, but if you can't see what's happening there's not much point in a flashy GPU

    On the G85VW... while I reckon that if they used a very minimalistic bezel you'd hardly have to make the unit much bigger it was probably only something that I'm wanting Alienware are on revision 3 of their mammoth laptop, so who knows, maybe there is a market out there.

    I knew you were gonna say that >.> lol!! the only reason I asked about an AMD mATX RoG board is because I am going to upgrade my current 3.6 to a 4.2, upgrade the RAM and even the VGA and then put those leftovers onto another AMD board ~sighs~ well, I hoped, I asked and I got shot down....such is life lol


    Now...I *could* go the route of a MVG, or, I can spend half that money($275AUD is cost of MVG) and purchase myself a ASUS M5A88-M mATX board...and get 6 SATA III ports on it, which is what I want
    Though it's getting to be an old board, I hope that when I have the money, someone will still have one brand new for sale lol

    The Maximus V formula and the CrossHair V Formula-Z were both on show at computex 2012 and I assume both will be released at the same time.

    Crosshair = High-end AMD
    Maximus = Mainstream Intel




    Note the difference:

    CrossHair V Formula-Z
    S FX III
    GameFirst II


    Maximus V formula
    S FX IV
    GameFirst II

    The Crosshair as an High-end AMD mobo is having a poor revision because it is not getting S FX IV...and we AMD Gamers are loosers.

    I think, bringing up Ferrari regarding the Asus ROG products is not bad at all... Both of those represent high end products. They may not be the best in the world, but they are definitely in the top... let's say 5 - that's what they have in common.

    Now, if you want a computer for every day use, nothing fancy (similar to a car which goes 30-80mph and has low gas mileage), you don't need ROG products... ROG products are high end, high class ones for people who can afford it... Asus also has products for mainstream users too...

    Now, if "Republic of Gamers" is a fortunate name for Asus's high end products? I don't know... For regular people, high end components means both good gaming experience and good overclockability... I mean, for what else could you use a high end PC (the industrial applications are excluded here)? Should Asus split they high end product line into a "Gamer's line" and "Overclocker's line"? Well, it's their choice... As a company interested in producing profit to survive, they have to follow the market's demand - like Ferrari does in the car manufacturing field

    Thing is, there will always be something that one buyer wants and another doesn't. Since one-off boards aren't a reality (yet?) there has to be a cookie cutter approach. And all things considered, I'd rather have a feature and not need it than lack a feature that I need.

    I don't know enough about all the different boards to give a valid opinion.

    But someone asked "What do gamers want?"

    Well I have it, I have a Crosshair V Formula. Its easy to tweak, I can OC the CPU to 4Ghz and the RAM to nearly 2000, which means that its going to play the latest games on max for a while to come (with the right grafics cards of course)
    It has a built in sound card that is good, a built in Lan plug RG45 thingy that works well, USB 2 and 3

    And I should imagine the equivelent for the Sandy/Ivy bridge is the same.

    Its true, there are probably things on the board that I don't need, some that I'll never use (maybe?)
    But the extra things for the "hardcore OC'er" help to learn about another side of computers.

    Because I find we are talking a lot about "gamers" and "OC'ers" But who is thinking about the guy that enjoys building his own rig, and playing with the settings (some for performance, others for silence, both can be done)

    PC's are not just for gamers and overclockers, they are also for techy geeks that like building and taking apart and rebuilding and tweaking and just generally "playing with the insides"

    And I think that the ROG motherboards are great for that
