Default Asus P5Q3 and Maximus II Formula P45 motherboards

Even though itís a P45-based Republic of Gamers board, itís curiously not fallen under the Blitz branding that was used for the P35-based RoG boards Ė Asus is changing things around slightly by slotting all Intel-based boards under either the Rampage or Maximus nomenclature, with the Striker branding saved for Nvidia chipsets on Intel platforms.

When Derek Yu, RoG Product Manager, produced the first sample of the Maximus II Formula, my jaw dropped quite literally. Iím finding it difficult to describe it without swearing, but the Maximus II Formula looks like a simply gorgeous piece of hardware. In comparison to what we have here, the original Maximus now looks like a lump of mish-mash and we now realise Asus was aware of this. In light of this fact, the company has completely revamped the styling to make it about a million times better.

Itís got oodles and oodles of features too Ė the entire heatpipe array is screwed down with ten screws. Derek laughed as he told this to the small gaggle of hacks Ė apparently, manufacturing was none too pleased because push-pins are much easier.
