When would you use "kamu siapa" and when would you use "siapa kamu"?
It's fine, whatever you use, the meaning is just same
Terima kasih banyak Tamalaki. That helps a lot. Question.... is one form more formal or it doesnt matter?
Kamu siapa/siapa kamu is informal. While if you want to use the formal form, you can use "Anda siapa?"
Kamu siapa is informal style
but isnt "siapa kamu?" considered a bit rude? i am a native speaker, maybe we would use "anda siapa?" instead
Both are correct and have the same meaning.
Terima kasih banyak Handrisuselo. That helps too. ^_^
It's the same but "kamu siapa" is more polite
Please use the first one. The latter sounds rude.
Mbak-mbaknya bicaranya nyolot :v

Is it rude to phrase it this way? It's grammatically correct but how about socially?
Good point. Actually it is uncommon using that phrase in a conversation. The polite one as simple use 'Siapa namamu?'
Gramaticaly, the question markers like who (siapa), what (apa), how (bagaimana) are placed at the beginning of a sentence. But in the casual conversation the structure can be switch and the meaning will be the same.
Kok salah sih padahal sudah bener who are you?siapa kamu
Hi guys, I Indo ppl do not care if u use kamu siapa or siapa kamu ahahaha, we are chill
Siapa kamu sounds arrogant to the other person.
