Update (01/15/14): It has now been 15 months since I built a computer using the ASUS Maximus V Formula motherboard. My home-built computer has worked flawlessly since then; it has NEVER locked up or experienced a blue screen of death reboot. If I were to build this system again, I think I would only use 16 GB of RAM, instead of 32 GB (especially since RAM prices have doubled since I built this system). Please note: There is now a newer version of this board: ASUS ATX DDR3 2600 LGA 1150 Motherboards MAXIMUS VI FORMULA.

In short, I am entirely pleased with my new ASUS motherboard. I highly recommend it. The ASUS Maximus V comes in three versions: the Maximus V Extreme (which is the higher-end version of the card), the Maximus V Formula (which I purchased), and the Maximus V Gene. These motherboards are intended for (so called) "hot rod" gaming computers. I selected the Formula model due to its on-board audio (discussed later) and its moderate price.

I purchased all of the parts for my new computer from Amazon; I am so pleased that Amazon carries (in stock) such a wide variety of computer components. My purpose in posting this review is to briefly touch on information that would have been of help to me as I selected parts for and later assembled my new computer.

Honestly, I did not want to build a new computer. Assembling a computer from parts is a lot more expensive than buying a ready-built machine. Tragically, the largest computer manufacturer no longer sells a computer that meets my requirements. And so, I had to assemble one myself. Luckily, building a computer is much simpler now (in 2012) than in the past.

Bought this motherboard from a third party seller (tigerdirect) on amazon. This is one of the best designed motherboards around with tons of features for the system builder and is aesthetically pleasing as well. Also comes with great utilities and one of the best bios around thanks to Asus. Thermo Fusion can be integrated into a watercooled setup.

I am removing one star because mine shipped with a bad mPcie combo card detecting no wifi signals. Asus tech support was friendly but clueless about the issue. Instead of the replacing the combo card I had to ship in the complete mobo back to seller and still have not received my refund after a week. Amazon customer service has been great so far. My advice is buy directly from Amazon.

Keep in mind it is an E-ATX board so make sure your tower can accomodate it.

ThunderFX is part of different bundle. Images are misleading.

This is a powerful motherboard with many features. First thing I recommend is to purchase an anti static wrist band before working on your computer or handling any electronic components, especially in the winter (low humidity = more static). They are inexpensive and cheap insurance.

As for comparing the Formula to other Z77 motherboards with similar features (in the same price range), realistically the performance will be indistinguishably close. So really comes down to the features you like.

The install was somewhat easy and the configuration went well. I say somewhat because I had to modify the motherboard tray in my Corsair 500R case. Since this board is an extended ATX form factor, it is just wide enough to cause some interference on the sockets for the SATA cables. So I had to cut a small relief to allow all the SATA cables to be plugged in without forcing / bending them into the sockets.

I see where some people had problems with the mPCIe card, so I followed the instructions at the ASUS ROG forum under the MAximus Series Motherboards and look for the topic "Maximus V not booting with mPCIe card plugged in" in the stickies.

The AI Suite II works well, and I particularly like the Fan Xpert 2. You can control the behavior of each 3 and 4 pin fan. It took a little while to figure it out, but it is fun to play with and customize your fan profiles.

Note: you can connect up to 8 fans to the motherboard. Three of the positions have an additional connector for a thermal sensor. The sensors allow for closed loop operation of the corresponding three fans.
