The differences between the two are the Maximus uses the X38 chipset and the Rampage uses the X48 chipset. I would compare the two chipsets over comparing the boards themselves.

i appreciate your reply but im asking about their physical layout coz if the TRUE and Xigmatek S1823 heatsinks were able to fit in the Maximus maybe it will also fit the Rampage

It'll fit the same on both. You can flash a Maximus to the Rampage BIOS. That's how similar they are. The X48 really is just the "cream of the crop" X38. Didn't bring anything new to the table so to speak.

And the TRUE fits perfectly on the Maximus in whatever orientation you like. I know because I tried.
