Package and Contents
We first start our journey with a look at the package that the Blitz Formula comes in as well as what you get with it. ASUS's Blitz series of boards (currently there is the Formula, Extreme and Maximus) belongs to the Republic of Gamers or ROG series of boards. ASUS puts the board in an oversized box. On the front of the box is only a few bits of info like the model name.
The back of the box contains a lot of info on the board's features, but one of the biggest features we look for is absent, that being the colour photo of the board which for this mount of dosh you're putting down you would like to know what you're getting before you buy.
The ASUS Blitz Formula box has an open out flap on the front that shows some of the more important features of the board which we will go into detail on later.
Lastly on the list we have what ASUS calls Supreme FX II sound module. What is it? Simply put, this is a daughter board module with the HD Audio codec on it along with the resistors, capacitors and such that run the traditional Onboard Audio. According to ASUS this is supposed to reduce the audio noise from having the codec on the board itself. While it does move it to a shielded location, it still has to be routed off from the ICH and this will still theoretically cause a bit of interference/noise.
