Default Asus X79 Rampage IV Formula vs IV Extreme

Hey guys,

Just wondering if it's worth the extra cash to go with the Extreme Version vs the Formula Version

Obviously both are overkill motherboards to begin with, and the Extreme version has more Ram slots, but would I be disappointed with the Formula?

I'm pairing it with a i7-3930K

Thanks,
Chomie.

If you don't plan to use 8 DIMMs, then I think you'd be more than happy with the Formula.

If you are a benchmarker, get the Extreme. If you are a gamer/overclocker, the Formula should be fine. If you plan to put the max 4x8GB DIMMs in the Formula, you'll probably have to shop at Newegg, NCIX doesn't appear to carry much stock.
