Hey Guy's. I'm upgrading to an Intel i5 3570K and I was thinking about getting an Asus Board, I really like their features and the colors :p ! I've looked at the Asus Rampage IV Formula and Maximus V Formula. Which board do you think is better and WHY?? I do lot's of gaming and will be getting the Asus 670 Direct CU II TOP. If you like any other boards, please suggest them :)  I will be doing OCing.

MSI 670 has the best performance and is the most overclockable, Asus 670 is the most quiet, Gigabyte 670 is the best all-rounder in the most affordable price.

Asus Maximus V Formula is a top product for overclocing and I prefer it over Rampage, however ASRock Z77 OC Formula also gives the same features coupled with a bit better performance (according to 3d mark Vantage results) in a better price.

Why would you want an Extended ATX board? Both of these boards are EATX and won't fit in a lot of cases. Also the main reason for both is for the additional PCI-E 16x slots and heavy overclocking.

For most people you would find that the Asus P8Z77-V would fit their needs as well and you can still do the OCing on it.

Most people would find that a $135 Asrock board has all the features they need. Of course if your main concern is color, well then your just not very sensible.

Is there something else you need this board doesn't offer? Even comes with 8GB of ram for free.
