Also everest-stresstest stable and excellently cooled (below 60 °C) by my Zalman CNPS9700LED at low setting, i can hardly hear it at all! :)

ASUS Maximus Formula SE: X38 and DDR2 Unite! http://www.anandtech.com/print/2374



Update 25 feb 2012: after 2 years now, today i have redone the test and no difference! See, what quality, what stability, reliability! :thup:

In a week I will be building a PC for someone, using this very motherboard. I did this test before taking it apart. This PC of mine will then get the new Rampage Formula i bought 1 year ago for safekeeping. It is another way to clean your PC: just rebuilding it. :D
