The core concept of the Maximus VIII Formula this time around revolves around giving users the flexibility and freedom to create a system that not only boasts high end performance with the latest specifications, but also a premium design not restricted to certain colors. Where traditional motherboards were locked to certain dominant colors, the color neutral Maximus VIII Formula doesn’t merely blend into the background but rather becomes the centerpiece with which all builds can begin. With strategically placed LEDs used in combination with clever laser engraving techniques, the Maximus VIII Formula goes beyond fancy lights and into the realm where it almost seems as if the pigments of the armor are changing color. Couple this with the CrossChill EK fusion block, which features a revamped water channel for optimized cooling and aesthetics, and it pushes this motherboard beyond the user’s wildest dreams.
