When ASUS launched their Republic of Gamers Z87 motherboards there was one that was missing, the Maximus VI Formula. They had already launched the Maximus VI Extreme, Hero, GeneZ and Impact boards. After a little while ASUS went ahead and finally launched the Maximus VI Formula motherboard. So why is this motherboard so special? Two things that really stand out about it is that it features the same Thermal Armor that ASUS has used on its TUF series of motherboards and it is the first ASUS motherboard to use the CrossChill hybrid air and water-cooling technology to keep the VRM’s nice and cool. Beyond that this is a Republic of Gamers board so you have Extreme Engine Digi+ III, SupremeFX Formula audio, Sonic Radar and a mPCIe Combo II with 802.11ac/Bluetooth 4.0. Does this board have it all? Read on as we find out!

ASUS Republic of Gamers has finally made it official with the introduction of the Maximus VI Formula Z87 gaming motherboard.

For quite a while now ASUS’s Republic of Gamers (ROG) motherboards have been the top of the line motherboards which offer very high-end and unique hardware and software features. For this reason they are a top choice of many enthusiasts and gamers. The one thing that keeps these boards out of the hands of many people is the price tag. The top of the line Maximus VI Extreme is currently selling for $399.99, which is quite a lot to just pay for a motherboard. ASUS knows that and wanted to give people the chance to get their hands on a Republic of Gamers board. That is where the Maximus VI Hero comes in, at just $229.99 it will still give you many of the same ROG features without some of the more “Extreme” ones that you may not use. This motherboard is designed for Intel’s latest 4th generation Haswell Core processors using the LGA1150 socket. Read on as we take this motherboard for a spin and see what all it has to offer.
When ASUS announced their Republic of Gamers Z87 motherboards there was one missing, a Formula board. ASUS told us it would be coming, but we did not know when or why they didn’t just announce it. They wanted to announce it at Computex and go over many of its new exclusive features. It is one good looking motherboard!
