Reviews
ASUS ROG MAXIMUS IX FORMULA, Intel Z270, S 1151, DDR4, SATA3, M.2, 2-Way SLi/3-Way CrossFire, GbE/WiFi, USB 3.1 A+C, ATX is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fandabydozey Couldn't rate this product higher, If you are looking for a Z270 Solution, with a bit of EK swag slapped onto it then look no further. The "armour" on the board really improves the look of the board and the whole thing is oozing with a high quality finish. The effectiveness of mosfet/mainboard cooling is a source of debate, however if you have a full custom loop then why would you go for anything else! ROG/Lighting effects are nice and integrate with asus' aura software if thats your kind of thing, it sure is mine! Only slight downsides I can say, - It is an expensive board, but worth every penny! - I had NO spare clearance space for the angled fitting on the top radiator and 8pin CPU power, see picture, but ofcourse this is heavily dependant on your choice of case (Im using a CosmosII)

Questions & Answers

RAM - Best Ram for the board?

DO i choose Dual Channel Ram or Quad Channel ram??
Asked by: Deviousst
Personally i decided to go for 2x16GB, however it is heavily down to personal circumstance, Before I start, (please someone correct me if i am wrong) from what I understand, although there is an advantage of higher bandwidth when using quad channel memory Gaming/Rendering/Encoding performance of dual/quad has a difference that is within the margin of error, and even then certain tasks preform slightly better with dual and other with quad. My Recommendations: For 2x16GB (My Personal Choice) Current prices (Aug 2017) for DDR4 are fairly even when you compare 2x16gb vs 4x8gb, and personally I would like the option to add more in the future should I decide to, without replacing any modules. For 4x8GB The only time i would personally go for this arrangement would be if i decided that there was no chance i would ever want to upgrade to >32gb and there is a slight aesthetic improvement when having a full bank of memory. For 2x8GB This is the budgetary option, if you would like to put the money towards upgrades to other components in your build then this is the option for you, as 16gb will be ample for most current tasks, and you can always upgrade to an additional 2x8gb in the future if you decide you want more.
