Re: ASUS -- ROG Maximus X Formula

The great thing about HEDT and why I got into it is it does not use any more power at idle than mainstream and does not produce any more heat. This is huge. You can tolerate high power and heat if you are intent on doing something that needs it but HEDT does not waste power constantly like it use to. It is very cool running on the desktop when you are browsing, checking mail, playing music and videos, etc.
