Formula

Is putting water on the EK water block necessary on the Formula?

Can you use it without? Does it effect any performance on the board?

Honestly it can be used either with or without water. its entirely up to you as to what you'd like to use. I have the Formula VIII using a Cryorig R1 Universal. No issues on air

It may save you some pennies to get the code if you're not going to do water, with them being so similar anyway?

I like that they have now made the power and reset buttons in the top right corner RGB as well. As on the previous Formula board it was white, and didn't go well if you changed the entire board to one specific colour. Which was rather annoying for myself, as I like uniformity.
Really nice that they thought of this this time around

I can relate to that; my front case fans and GPU are red, the CPU AIO white (I had planned to go all white by replacing the front fans but the GPU doesn't do white) and it annoys me!!

Okay now I see why you were such a fan of the Gigabyte G7 it had the same clock with only 1.32 volts! Impressive!
