    Republic of Gamers Maximus X Formula LGA 1151 Z370 ATX Motherboard is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great board once working Very happy with B&H delivery time, unfortunately this board was manufactured wrong—causing a huge headache for me. This board comes equipped with an EK brand water block that ASUS calls the “Crosschill”. This has been a prime feature of the Formula boards for a long time. Sadly when I did my initial water loop priming/test, I found the CrossChill water block leaking coolant all over my new motherboard. ASUS technical support was useless, telling me to convince B&H to exchange it as defective. Instead I stripped the board down and disassembled the water block to find the assembly process was done recklessly and the gasket that is sandwiched between the block halves was complexly misaligned out of the grooves. After I repaired this with some ATV silicone and proper positioning of the gasket, and spent hours cleaning the board with CFC QD electronics cleaner, the block operated fine and I have had no physical issues with the motherboard. I did find the ASUS software to control the lighting and OLED panel to be buggy and hard to use, so buyer beware. Do yourself a favor and check the water block before installation. You will save yourself a lot of frustration!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome motherboard Had it for a week now and regret nothing. Lots of graphics scrolling on the PCI-e boards that I wasnt expecting, and lots of LED lights too if you are seriously into the eye candy. Controls the DIMM module LEDS too if they come equipped with eye candy. Overclocked my 8086k chip over 5.4ghz stable. Plenty of room for upgrades too. I especially like where they placed the M.2 slot, as its only visible if you take off a certain cover on the motherboard. Next thing to add is a GTX1080ti.
