No, the maximus formula kills any other board out there for overclocking, i've spent the last 2 weeks looking up every shred of info pertaining to the maximus formula and the only complaint to be had for this board are idiots who either got a DOA board and curse the world because of it, or are newbs who have no idea what they are doing.
I know two people who just got this board, up from a P5K deluxe @ 3.4Ghz now running stable at 4-4.2ghz. My one friend cranked it to 4.5 ghz and is currently stress testing it.
Yes, they are expensive, but what do you expect? its the striker extremes succesor.
Yes, the chipset is new, yet extremely stable and showing amazing potential.
i realise that most people on site dont recomend the newest, flashiest and inheritly most expensive system, but guys, this is a good board, you should stop bashing it. Yes its outside of most peoples budget, but for people who have no trouble spending that extra dough, hey all the power to you, you wont be dissappointed.
Btw get the SE version, more features, a couple dollars more expensive.
