ASUS's Maximus VIII Formula is tuned for very high performance out of the box. Multi-core enhancement is present, and there seem to be other optimizations that boost out of the box performance. There are no performance pitfalls.

 

Some motherboard reviews put a lot of weight into motherboard CPU, memory, and GPU benchmarks, but for me CPU, memory, and GPU benchmarks on motherboards should be more about finding anomalies, and I do that at standard settings (4.5G in graphs).
