Final Verdict

My final verdict would be a go for it for the Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Formula. Even if its price offering is a bit high considering the features but you can put your trust blindly in the Asus brand value and Ryzen AMD chipset. It won’t disappoint your expectation in this price segment.

The EKWB along with the VRM cooling block delivers exceptional power and output. The inclusion of overclocking features like retry & safe boot buttons, and also the LN2 jumper, as well as the VRM design, make it more worthy. The high-end components used in VRM is one of the reasons for the high price factor. The UEFI features, custom profiles for memory overclocking. The built, design, and aesthetics add value to the look.

If you’re looking for a high-end, pleasant Ryzen AMD X570 motherboard with an integrated EK waterblock, VRM, and USB 3.1 on the rear IO panel, then Crosshair VIII Formula is the one you need to have a look on.
