Rampage IV: Extreme vs Formula

Hello everybody, I am having trouble making a decision between these two boards for a new build.
I have decided on a 3930k that I will be overclocking as much as possible on low-mid range water cooling.
Maybe something like a H100i to begin with and later add in a custom loop.
I will be using the computer for gaming, overclocking, photoshop/lightroom, programming and benchmarking.

I don't have any use for the SupremeFX as I will be putting in a high end discrete sound card any way.
I do like the idea of the Game First but I don'y think it would make a huge difference (correct me if I am wrong).
I will put in 1 680 to begin with then probably add in 1 or 2 more.

Above all I absolutely love the aesthetics of the Extreme :D

I am also open to other suggestions.

Thanks in advance guys, I have been trying to decide for a while now and I have always enjoyed reading the articles on Tom's Hardware so i thought I would see what you all think. :D

    Just to add to it, the 8 DIMM slots would be nice but are not absolutely necessary.
