ASUS Maximus V Formula

Hello All,


Nub in need of help, I'm having trouble finding out some information on the ASUS Maximus V Formula as i am very interested in buying one.

Question 1: ASUS' Thunderbolt EX Upgrade Card for 7-series does this work with this mobo?

Question 2: I can not find any information if i can use a wireless headset on a ThunderFX as i despise cords and need a wireless headset, will this work on thunderfx?

Thank you for all your help :love:

  2. I've been through hundreds of forums, most of them on ROG forums and still can not find any information about these three questions.

    Can you like me to links please as i can't find this information anywhere?
  5. Okay wait maybe it doesn't support the thunderbolt thing - http://www.tomshardware.com/news/asus-thunderbolt-Z77-H77-pcie,15925.html (Search for the word "Maximus" - It'll head you down to someone's comment)

    As for the headphones, it probably should. Every external sound card does :\
  6. Do you have any Thunderbolt devices?

    the thunderfx has only one usb 2 port and from all my research it says its used for power.

    "Simply plug in the provided USB cable into the ThunderFX and a PC or notebook."

    "Remember the USB cable also needs to be plugged into a spare console port to provide power."

    Oh well. Then it doesn't.

    Save 100 bucks and get the normal Maximus V Formula, its for $279. I really didn't find the thermalfx thing fascinating. The formula already has great onboard audio.
