Is this worth the extra money in your opinions as the only difference over the Formula version seems to be extra memory slots?

The Rampage is my favourite board!!! and I have many ASUS boards. Yes its complex but it eeks out every last bit of performance from components and has a massive set of features.

You want the best go on a Rampage!!!

I have read many bad reviews about Gig X79 boards mainly centered around shocking V droop!!

I have the ASUS RIVE... haven't regretted it one bit. It is packed with so much stuff...

OC'ing is a doddle and the ASUS forums for the board are filled with little guides, tips and tricks.

BaDBoY recommends the ASUS RIVE ;)

I've been thinking about getting the formula and a 3820, is it picky with RAM and if so can you recommend any 16gb kits that'll be hassle free and not ludicrously expensive?

Any G.Skill 16gb Kit and your good to go. The sweet spot in terms of speed is 2133mhz on this platform so go for the GSKILL RipjawZ that go 9-11-10-28 and your ready to rock.

Avoid Corsair Vengeance.
