See that sticker that says P5E ? peel it off, it has Maximus Formula underneath ;)

Scroll to bottom of the first post, you'll see a guide how to convert it even!

Well, the formula has dual gigabyte lan. But I thought the Formula has had more overclocking features.

I had no idea that they were like the exact same lol.

The P5E, Maximus Formula and Rampage Formula are all the same in terms of board layout. The only difference is the Rampage/Maximus have dual gigabyte lan. But the Rampage and Maximus also have more bios features. The Formula/P5E are x38 and the Rampage Formula is a x48. All three boards however only have 2xpci-e 16 slots.

The Maximus extreme however has 3 pci-e 16 slots and is x38 as well.

LOOK OUT, SOME ONE FROM THE INTERWEBS, HE MUST KNOW WHAT HES TALKING ABOUT!!!
Actually, you do and don't, I own the Formula, and a Friend of mine owns a P5E Flashed to Rampage, only diffrence is the dual gigabyte lan ports, and yes the Bios options BUT when you can flash it to the Rampage, you "unlock" in a sense, those extra bios options, making it the same minus the dual lan.

That being Said,

P5E/Maximus Formula/Rampage = X38/X48, 2xPCIe, DDR2
Maximux Extreme = X38, 3xPCIe, DDR3

Don't mix your ram and boards up.

Oh and BUMP for a GREAT PRICE!!!
