Dumo that's sick -- what kind of cooling are you running?
with a v core of 1.644 i would say something more then air or water.
Its a Single Stage cooling
A little bit more oc
So far HTT 345 X Locked Multi 14 for this cpu. This CH IV board with Turbo V really fun to play oc with
I'd love to see an Everest memory/cache test at 1840mhz cas 6 6-6-18! Sick!

The Egg has'em
$229.99 Shipped as I post this.
Who else is Jonesing more for the extreme like I am???
I understand that the formula is a really nice board, but the Extreme is supposed to OC better (unless Asus is snake oiling us).
Xtreme have those stupid bluetooth that can be connected to phone for remote overclocking. But who knows if it have better more powerful power module circuit.
I'm just speculating, no board to test yet
Yes, the extreme one is to going to overclock better.
Looks like the first review,
Impressive is all I can say.
Are you the guy who reviews the formula
No that's not me but I did run all the same benchmarks and I can confirm this chip/board combo's awesome
its a ways off ... Formula
Im all ordered with a 90 six too! this has been a fun circle J and drooling session now its on to RL play with it. Im sure ppl will post some cool benchies ect and look forward to it Im glad u had fun in my first "good" thread :\ lol! byeyassssss
Hey guyz, i've got a question. I've already bought 2 SATAII drives (Samsung Spinpoint F3), and i was going to build gaming rig with this board and 1090T..so the question is - will this mobo support RAID0 with my drives?
I would be very surprised if it had no onboard raid.
It actually has, but for SATA3. AFAIK, there's actually no difference between SATA2 and SATA3 cables. Still thinking: will SATA2 RAID work properly with SB850 ?
It absolutely should fall back to 3gbps, then 1.5gbps.
So, shall i return those drives and get SATA3 drives?
I been Pieceing my first rig together for the past few months and waiting on the new chipset to be available. I been partial to the MSI boards but after looking at the ASUS 890FX Crosshair IV Formula it looks like it is going to be the one I get. My 14 year old son is going to be very pleased with his new computer.
Personally...the biggest upgrade you can get in the HDD world is SSDs. I don't think the performance difference justifies it...yet...that being said, I did just buy a new 600 Sata III Vrap....Thinking of raiding two together down the line...And I am losing a drive out of my main rig that has to be replaced.
My VM box is going to have 4 1.5TB Seagate's in Raid 5, and a 2TB Main drive for the OS.
Are those velociraptors that good as they say?
No they are not. Samsung F3 series eats them. Trust me...I've had both.
Are you talking the old raptors or the VR's? I've never heard anyone say the F3's will beat the newer VRs. Hell, in raid 0, my VR's beat some slower SSDs. Please post a HDtune screenie fof those F3's, so I can compare them. I specifically want to see access time. Thanks!
There is no way the f3 beats new vraptors maybe the old 74/36gb raptors but not the 300/600gb vraptors
