One week ago we tested our first board with the X38 chipset here. While we were quite pleased with its performance, overclocking was not as good as we would have liked, and the price was way too high. Asus recently released the Maximus series, which is the successor of the Blitz series. We got both versions, the Extreme Edition for DDR3 and the Formula Edition for DDR2. This will give us an opportunity to compare them head on. The Maximus Formula board comes in two flavors, one for water-cooling solutions and an standard edition.
