    P5e vs Maximus Formula?

    Not worth it since you can flash the P5E into a maximus formula and even to a X48 ramage formula!!

    Turn your Maximus Formula into Rampage Formula - Page 13 - XtremeSystems Forums

    Of course, forgot to mention that. I had to make this decision a while ago, the maximus only has three extra features that are worth considering over the P5E, the extra gigabit lan port, onboard on/off switch and LCD poster. I didn't think I'd use any of those so I'd saved myself a few £10 notes.
