    Rampage III Extreme vs Asus Rampage III Formula feedback?

    I am planning on doing another build but am seriously considering purchasing a Asus Rampage III Formula over the Rampage III Extreme to go with a i7/950

    will be used for gaming only, any feedback would greatly help out. Any differences I should be aware of? Or should I just get the best of Asus the Rampage III Extreme as my current Rampage Extreme has been a great mobo.

    I quick comparison gave me a differences of:
    SupremeFX X-Fi 2 on Formula (only 8ch HD audio on Extreme)
    3 more USB on the Formula
    NB power and Mem power, each has 1 more phase on extreme
    ML caps on CPU,Mem & QPI on extreme
    1 more PCI-Express 16X slot on the extreme

    DCTokyo, if you are getting a rampage for gaming, Formula is the best choice. its got everything you want and nothing you dont need. It comes with the X FI 2 codecs where the Extreme does not. i will be releasing a overview guide for the rampage iii formula soon.

    Hi Brian@ASUS,
    Many thanks for the reply, I forgot to add that I will be using my own sound card (x-fi PCI-E) and my own intel server nic card instead of the onboard ones. Would this make a difference in your choice? What I really want is what I have now, a 100% Stable gaming system, I am sure both boards will give me that, now I like the 3 more USB ports on the Formula as ottoyu34 mention.

    hurm, well then it really comes down to looks and price. if you want the best of the best, then Rampage III Extreme is your choice, but for 100% stable gaming, Formula will deliver what you need. hard decision...
