As a whole the stock clocked performance of any board compared to another board is rarely very different. The results in all of our tests are very dependent on the CPU, RAM, and Video card. Areas that a motherboard can make a difference are in things like data transfer on the SSD, network speed, audio, and other things that run on controllers on the motherboard. Because of that, even though we do a list of benchmarks, the benchmarks are fairly trivial and rarely very different. It is interesting though when we do a benchmark like 3DMark11 and see every single benchmark from a manufacture stand ahead of everyone else. Even more interesting is the fact that we saw the same results almost across the board in our testing. I can only account this to good power control and attention to detail on things like the motherboards trace routing but frankly even that is speculating. What we do know is that in benchmarks that no product should stand out, Asus has managed to stand out FIVE times in a row using different motherboards including the Formula V that we are talking about today. See the results below!

I have had this board in my current gaming rig since August and love it. I am not water cooling the thermo fusion block, but it is nice to know I have the option. This is the 2nd time I have bought an Asus Maximus Formula series board, and I will absolutely buy more in the future. Definitely a great product.

It was the first time I ever took great care in wiring. The HAF XM case is great for that.

Looks pretty great, just not an Intel guy, and not prepared for that price range on mobos.
