    Hero VII vs Formula.. Who is using what?

    Just curious what everyone is using. the formula has some additions that I like, but I'm not sure if they're stuff that adds up another 100$ for me. (i like the extra fan connections, the ROG armor and that's about it for me)

    I believe the Hero VII is the more popular one because it's priced well and offers what everyone mostly needs, but curious who spends the extra money for the extra features.

    Could you also post the reason you got the Formula over the Hero VII?

    Thanks!

    edit: boo, can't add a poll on this forum?

    If you intend to do overclocking, check out the differences in BIOS. I have the M6F and M6H and the differences in BIOS capability are real. Download the manuals for both M7 motherboards from the ASUS support pages and read through them for what you're interested in.

    The M6F also has much better audio, but I don't know if that carries over to the M7's.

    you can go to the asus mobo page and do a comparison between them both and see.

    The M7F is much better for OC.
    I have a VII Hero and going to replace it with a M7F, because of this: WiFi (802.11ac) + BlueTooth
